It sure is cold in here. Someone must have turned the air conditioning up to full blast!
I'll take a poorly recorded really great song over an excellently recorded crappy song any day. Garbage in, garbage out is what you make of it.
They are versatile in that they sound great with both the stock pads and also the comfy fuzzy ones. They amp well, too. I use them at work with the Fiio E17/E09K combo.
Yes, normal. Air needs to move around in the chamber and when it gets pushed out of such a tight seal the driver isn't as free to move until air gets sucked back in. Not very scientific explanation but your headphones are just fine.
I use an umbrella.
I would open them and have a listen. After 543 hours of burn in, of course 😜
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.
