Question Clear Bass issues with LOD?

Before I got my FiiO L5 LOD, I used to put Clear Bass +3. After getting LOD, if I put it at +3, the mids are forcefully sort of getting "lowered", I mean, they get recessed when the music gets loud (i.e. chorus in Rock/Metal songs). It sounds like it's being capped, forcefully. When Clear Bass is set at +2, the problem completely goes away.

My E470 is not EU volume capped, nor has any other enhancements turned on. E06 is on default (No EQ). I've narrowed it down to Clear Bass as it only occurs when it is set at +3.

Is this a common Sony LOD issue? If anyone else has the L5, could you test this out? I tried IEMs as well, same issue prevails at +3.
