Question about Bass and Capacitors

I just completed my cable last night and everything works as expected except when I plug in the charger for my phone at the same time. I've read about the resistors and capacitors and I plan on purchasing those to integrate them into the cable today. My question is regarding the issues with the bass frequency. A lot of people are complaining about the bass after adding the capacitors in series. Has anyone looked into a way to resolve this? Would adding a larger capacitor (maybe 1uF instead of .22uF) help restore some of the lost bass from the capacitors acting as filters? Is there any other way to by-pass the capacitors and still allow me to charge my phone and use the AUX input at the same time?
