Nope, they are highly efficient. However, if you feed them from a better source, they improve.

Why don't you bend the headband a bit? I'm pretty sure you could obtain better results...
As others have noted, these are really efficient 'phones, they also come with a mic'd cable which is designed for smartphone use (amps aren't compatible with the mic portion, but should run fine). So a phone is sufficient enough. As with most headphones, a different source/amp can make a big difference.
Their weight also helps them loads as well. This is actually one of the things it has over the P7 in terms of portability. The P7 have some weight to them compared to the HP50 (from memory).
Headband wasn't too flexible IMO. The Square headband is a little rare, but I don't mind the look.
