Used my device with my Grado SR80i's (32Ohm), Sennheiser HD-25 II (70 OHM) and with a professional concert PA system. The bass is fine on all 3 platforms. Make sure you turn off any EQs or DSPs in the phone, those are usually ****.

I can't say I use my Nexus 7 for music that much as I tend to listen via my phone, but I didn't think the sound output was particularly bad to say it is a tablet, even with a generic pair of cheap earphones. Perhaps if you want super bass and unrivalled fidelity you should consider maybe a hi-fi? Just saying...

Most probably, if you want more bass, it's unnaturally much bass anyway. Just like people who want (and are used to) totally oversaturated AMOLED displays and find accurate displays "pale"...

Compared both my N7 2013 and S4.

The S4 has better quality on the same HiFi earphone (SM E10s).

But still N7 2013 delivers good sound though
