I'll look into the Pro500's, they seem pretty good.

Right now, the only headphones I have are some $30 Sony noise canceling headphones, and they have zero bass at all. However, I found a way to use on of my old guitar amps to give them more than enough bass. I've seen so many positive reviews and stuff on the AD700's, so I think I'm just going to try them out to see how well they sound with the guitar amp. Since Amazon has such a great return policy, I'll just try it out.

ATH-AD700s good clarity, but not a whole lot you can do to increase the ATH-AD700's light bass (I tried).

Well I'll just try them out. How long does it usually take for them to burn in?

Good luck trying to squeeze bass out of a headphone that just does not have it.

I've decided to go with the subwoofer idea. I'm still brand new to all this, so how would i go about setting it up?
