The HD439 have an amazing soundstage to be a closed can. If you love bass do the bass mod to the HD439, recommended.

Sounding low? You mean low volume? If is the problem, buy a headphone amplifier, like FiiO e6

the sounding is low and i am not getting that great sound as i am getting in my hd 203. does it require proper burning? and how much time it would take .will fiio e6 improve the quality of sound or just amplifies the sound.??

There's a Fiio E07k on the classifieds right now for 65 dollars.  It is a good decent portable dac/amp that will be more than powerful enough for your HD439.

Maybe you miss the bass in the HD203 i think. The Hd 439 have good bass but not elevated bass. The sound signature of HD439 is relaxed but you can do the bass mod. A FiiO E06 is powerful enough, but a e07k is ideal. I had a HD203 and for me, buy the hd439 was a major upgrade, the refinement, the detail, vocals and mids. However like i said before you can do the bass mod.  Here is a link.
