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,
