ebay.com is definitely one of them as long as you buy it from a reputable seller.

As for headphones, what is your budget and music taste?

im not looking for music to much but was gonna do some looking around but as for the amps im not sure about the brands and such thats why i was looking for websites for reviews etc but mostly be using these cans so i can really get into my games my AD700's arent really giving me the "your in the game" sound great for multiplayer but just not greatest for singleplayer but when i do listen to music all genres and would like to watch movies also

Closed cans dont offer better quality sound anyway all they offer is isolation.

Open headphones give a better sound then closed and the only reason to own closed heaphones is so no sound is leaked out .

Another issue with closed headphones is they box in the sound which makes bass response more prominent .

Spending more on headphones isn't always gonna give you a better sound to your ears.

Plus some of the best headphones don't require a AMP to sound good .

We need to know what music you listen to aswell .

well im looking for something that little more immersive like ive said before i thought closed cans would help with that would like something a little more bassy then the AD700s they have no bass at all

EDIT: im not sure how much i wanna spend im looking around right now if i have to put up a number id probly say 400$ or less

Sorry i missed that about the music .

I agree the AD-700s are very bass light and get recommended way too much on OCN .

What source are you using eg soundcard and do you listen to loseless music or MP3 320 ?
