thanks in advance!
The Sony's eq works wonders! You don't need an amp.
The clear bass setting is around 50hz (deep bass), the 2.5khz area is for clearness, the 1khz area is for more forward vocal, and the 6khz area is for more treble. Lift each up 1 notch (not 2 or 3) in the eq to get your desired sound (the 6khz is optionally since the ie8's treble should be fine).
