I have only been reading and following the AD900X comments as few or none badmouth it. I do own the AD700 and can attest to its wonderful sound stage and comfort to wear for hours. Comments say AD900X is a big leap up from the AD700, makes me want to try it. Amazon varies sometime as low as $235.
I did get A900X since I found it for cheap and enjoy it a lot even while it is still breaking in. It will always be a bit snug to seal around the ears for that 'closed' sound.
I don't think you need a signal boost via an amp (at least not right away for the A900x) but the nicer/more money amps have bells and whistles like EQ adjustment and maybe swappable opamps.
I'd first try making sure your music is in FLAC or equivalent (the compression method). Or try listening directly off a retail music CD or movie DVD and see how the sound was originally recorded. That alone makes a world of difference sometimes. If I find something I like but it is only available in some lowly MP3 mode, I will breakdown and buy the CD or DVD and convert it to FLAC to make it portable and/or a smaller file.
You really don't want the top of the line headphones unless you are a professional because you are going to start hearing all the flaws in the recordings, IMHO.
