Several places. Sennheiser, Audio Technica, AKG, Grado.......
Seriously, I've never heard of such a place. If there is, one of the manufacturers would probably have strafed and bombed it by now.post #3 of 32/1/11 at 12:56am
Generally people buy cheap (relatively) headphones and transplant the driver into nicer housing or mod the hell out of them (Fostex T50RP->Thunderpants, Grado SR60i->Woodied+Bilagrado mods, etc)
You'd get better help in the DIY section, I know you can buy drivers from various places.. I remember a thread where someone bought tweeters meant for speakers and used them in headphone housing.
