At the end of the day, a $50 driver will still be a $50 driver.
Sorry you didn't like the M40X. I use mine at work with the E10 Fiio and I love it. Agreed, The Shure SRH440 is excellent at that price point too. We're talking $100 headphones here and pound for pound both are great values.
You could try a different pad but whatever modifications you make will sacrifice qualities that make the M40x one of the best values in headphones. You are looking for something open backed if you want airy with a wider soundstage.
The 1540s are not difficult to drive. That will be fine.
The 1540s are a worthy upgrade. A truly unique headphone. They like a good source and amping though so be careful.

Welcome to Head-fi! I would recommend researching the sites forums for more info than I can provide. There is a wealth of it on here. Basically with the Q701 and it's cousins K701/702 they have the capacity to blossom sound wise with more power supplied than a typical headphone jack on an iPod or computer can provide. The headphones you have are capable of much more than you are now hearing.
