Default Disappointed with the S754

I've bought an s754 (volume limited) to replace my a808. I'm disappointed with the player:

- Although 15-20 is fine in many cases, the volume is way too low for some pieces. My hearing is fine (checked in Nov. 2010), and I don't want to use the normalizer.

- The audio "scratches" my eardrums (high frequencies?). My ears feel tired. I've never had this problem with my a808 in almost four years. Is it fixable in the service menu (I tried the equalizer)?

- The NC function doesn't work well. It does cancel some sounds, but my cheap Sennheiser IEMs block more noise. At the library, I could clearly hear the noise of pages being turned, and in a windy street, I could barely hear the music.

Edit: I'm listening to "Dire Straits - What It Is". The volume is set to 12 (loud enough for this song), everything is off (equalizer, DSEE, VPE, Clear stereo, normalizer), but it's still doing something I don't like to my ears.
