I've heard that a lot but I won't have an amp within the timeframe of returning these, and I think I might be looking for something more neutral. I guess if leaving the D2000s was a misstep, I can sell whatever I have at the time and go back to them. But I just don't dig the overall sound signature, I like wider soundstages with more seperation and a more neutral sound.
Edit: I tried my receiver with my vinyl records and it just seemed to make the problem worse, the bass became tightened up but became far more overpowering. Might be the receiver, or the turntable. They both are just decent. I can try to see if any of my friends have any amps or receivers that I can come check out to see if it improves the sound, but I have a feeling I might be having an issue with the sound signature. It sounds like a home theater system on your head, and I like headphones to be clear and intimate.
Have you used an amp with the Denon D2000? If not I would suggest that first my guess is it would tighten up the bass from what I've read which may go a long way. At a minimum give them a Dac & Amp to try them with before getting rid of them as if may clear up your issues. I know they are a low impedance headphone but from what I've read they do benefit from a quality source and power.
