Can a 2017 MacBook Pro (non-touch bar) drive the HiFiMan HE-4XX’s?

my Cowin E7 pro’s are decent to me, but I am getting tired of the cheap, tinny sounding rock guitars. i bought the HE4XXs because I thought they would have more sub bass and bass presence, and because they might be better for the kind of music I listen to. Also, the wider soundstage is a plus for me.

Will it make music... sure... will they get better with amping... for most people yes. Regardless of who makes it a laptop is not the "best" choice to power any headphone. Whether or not you will be happy with the sound depends way too much on the individual to answer here. Best option is to try it for yourself.
