amirm did you use your RME ADI 2 DAC to listen to these. If so did you use the IEM headphone out of the RME or the standard one.
I'd use the IEM port. They are sensitive, even by IEM standards. Quoted sensitivity is 109db/mW but Reference Audio Analyzer measured 117.47 dB/mW / 132.25 dB/V SPL.

This gels with my experience, they get very loud very quick and I have to use them at low gain and low volume on everything.
