Default Quiet speech with Sennheiser PX100

I've recently bought a set of Sennheiser PX100 headphones for my (original) Clip, to replace the original headphones. But I've noticed that speech (for example in podcasts or interviews or audiobooks) is now quiet and often hard to make out. Are there any recommended EQ settings to boost the clarity of speech?

I've compared the old and new headphones and while I notice music is a little quieter at the same volume with the new headphones, it's still easy to hear. But any spoken word tracks take a significant hit, to the extent that they can't be heard if there's any background noise or they're a little quiet. I've tried the various EQ presets and I've tried messing around with the Custom EQ, but without much success.

I'd rather customise the EQ (and switch back to normal EQ for music if necessary) than bump up the volume globally (at the expense of battery life?) Is it possible to optimise the EQ settings for clairty of speech, or am I out of luck?
