Default Thinking of Getting the Phonak Audéo PFE

I think I'm pretty sure of replacing my broken Panasonic RP-HJE900 that broke about a month ago with the Phonak Audeo PFE's but I have a few concerns before making a purchase.

There's no importances of order so first, I'm well aware from digging through this forum, Head-Fi and other reviews on the web that the phonaks, being a analytical phone, has less bass quantity then the pana's but can you get close to the pana's bass quantity with EQing with rockbox or by using the fiio E3 amplifier? How does an EQ'ed or E3 sourced pfe bass compare to the pana's bass in terms of overall quality and punch?

Another concern, I'm not sure if I'm accurately using the right terms here but are the mids on the pfe's containing the same or better texture then the pana's mids? I think I'm asking you can feel sounds in the midrange of the pfe's the same or better then the pana's but I'm not quite sure.

I haven't came across any reviews or comments of anyone really hating the pfe's, so either they're really solid sound phones or people who would potentially dislike them just stay away from them.
