because to tell you the truth, it feels like something is missing. I'm thinking it might just be Youtube sound quality.

Wow, so such a model *does* exist. It probably isn't well-known though for a reason or two.

One thing I do know is that its not causing a buzz in any community. How much did you pay for it, and what is it exactly missing? Perhaps is it bass, as low end sennheisers are known to lack.

Supposedly they have overlybright high end, the same nonexisten bass that the ad700 has, and less detail from what I've heard. Also in a review the ad400 were recommended over them

thats kinda what i noticed (overly bright high and nonexistant bass) These are my first pair of headphones and I bought them with the advice of one of the stickies in here. I do like them alot so far though.

Would a sound card help bring the experience together considering my music source (Pandora, Youtube)

I DLed Realtek HD and it helped somewhat changing from stereo to quadrophonic, changed the environment and equalizer and the format.

This was just the first driver i found though. Is there a better one that is built for headphones and not surround sound?

Edit: I think it was the song i was listening to. As soon as i changed songs to a better recording it got alot better and its back in stereo mode.
