Someone explain something. I was listening to my CKM50s then put on my Denon D2000, and I felt like something was missing from the Denons, I think its the mid-bass hump, can someone confirm? And can anyone do a SQ comparison between CKM-50 and D2000, regardless of soundstage. I'm confused.
LOL those are my genres right there, D2000 is perfect for those. I think OP is mistaken or has a source problem. My suggestion is to let them burn in, get a DAC/amp like a FiiO E10, and lossless FLAC/ALAC files for music. I think its a source problem because the D2000 has GREAT amounts of sub-bass. But if you really dont like them and want bass I suggest downgrading to HFI-580 Edit: I see OP already has an E10
open back headphones leak a lot and tend to have larger soundstage (except Grados). Closed back headphones don't leak as much and have smaller soundstages. But rgeyre are a lot of closed headphones with really good soundstages like denons and ultrasones.
