Shure SRH-1440's - Help?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone,


I just was given Shure SRH-1440's for Christmas. I don't want to sound like a total brat, but I'm a bit dissatisfied. I don't know much about the science behind good headphones, but I do play bass, piano, guitar, and drums, so I know a bit about music. The sound was incredibly clear but, in my opinion, lacked bass. I don't want ridiculously boosted bass, but these headphones sound hollow. I am playing the music out of my laptop, which may not have the power to adequately drive the headphones. Is this the case? Should I buy an amplifier before I judge these headphones? For $400 dollars, I want to be satisfied.


Thanks for all of your help,

Yup, they have some rolloff.

Thanks. I know this is a really open-ended question, but can anybody recommend a pair of headphones (in this price range, ~$400) that has a tiny bit more bass?

Would you be interested in selling the headphones?

They need amped, they are not bass cannons by any means, but the do have bass.

The SRH1440 had more bass than the K701 and the SRH1840- certainly a warmer, fuller sound. Of course they're not going to satisfy bassheads but I thought they were adequate.
