I'd prefer to pay more and get a factory warranty, rather than buying online from overseas.

I'm pretty much restricted to AKG, Sennheiser, Shure, and Audio-Technica. There's a couple of the others around, but those are the big three from where i'm sitting (and they all come from shops aimed at musicians/sound technicians).

Now, HEADphones... Much, much easier. There must be a smaller market for hi-fi earphones.
I hear what he's saying. I felt the same way. I actually still feel the same way. But, sonicfantom, realize that you may be missing out on some very good headphones by limiting yourself to the big brand names sold only in your country. Nevertheless, I admit I did exactly the same thing. My latest purchase was for a pair of Panasonics--which have a presence in my country and I can get warranty service from Panasonic directly in my country. So I hear and understand your concerns.

Given your preference for bass, I think you'll probably end up with a Sennheiser. Shure and Audio-Technica isn't known for bass heavy 'phones. I haven't read much about AKG.
