Is there a headphone with the same sound as the Shure SRH-840, only with more bass?

So I just tested out the Shure SRH-840, I really like its sound, only wish it had more bass. So is there another headphone with the same sound like the Shure SRH-840, only with more bass? My budget is a max of €150,- ($200).

Use an equalizer. I haven't heard the srh 840 but id recommend the done mdr 1r, or ath ws99.

1r is very balanced. Slightly emphasized bass, mid emphasized.
Ws99 has slightly emphasized mids, and emphasized bass.

Can't get the ATH WS99 in my country, and the MDR 1-R is out of my budget.

Phillips Fidelio l1 then. They have somewhat deep sound stage, slightly recessed mids, emphasized bass. Very warm sounding.

For open id recommend the ma900. They're very balanced and are clearer overall than the other three, and it has enough bass to satisfy.

Those are too expensive in my country aswell. Is there any good amp/DAC that can give the 840's better sound quality and more bass without dipping the other frequencies?

Needs battery + still too expensive.

I posted this in the 840 thread for you, also. You would be better of just purchasing the Fiio E11 with it's bass boost option. I have the E12 and the bass boost works wonderfully when needed.

^what he said.

You don't need a battery for the ue6000. It can run on passive.

I had a pair of SRH 840´s and felt exactly the same as you, the sound quality was amazing but the lack of bass somewhat let them down, I also had the Sony MDR-1r (gladly I sold them recently), in my opinion the sound quality was not in the league of the 840's but the bass was pretty good, the SRH 840 had such an impressive quality to it, I loved them and am currently negotiating buying another pair. My only gripe was they did feel a bit heavy.
