    What's wrong with my setup? Disappointing sound.

    As Redcarmoose stated if you have one of those songs on CD,SACD or DVD-A i would give that a listen to rule out amp,dac or headphones before you proceed.

    Focal Clear headphones

    IMO if you throw enough volume at any headphone with a demanding passage be it movie or music it will clip but for your hearing safety I would refrain.
