Default Audio Technica ATH-AD700 Retailers?

I'm looking for a good pair of headphones for movies, gaming and music. I've heard many great things about the Audio Technica ATH-AD700 and was wondering if there are any retailers in prefereby canada that will ship to me in Ontario. Can be in the states as long as they ship here. I could also get off eBay or would a retailer be better?

Be really careful if you try Ebay - AT phones are one of the worse ones for knockoffs and imitations. And too many people look at the great price and don't ask questions.

If you haven't done so already, try to find an independent audio dealer. The big box stores won't touch high-end headphones, but it's not uncommon for the independent stores to stock some, or at least be able to get it in.

I can buy them from amazon international for 130 shipped. Would they be real and is that a good price?

That's about the right price range I believe, and Amazon isn't exactly a fly-by-night shady dealer. I'm no authority of these headphones understand, this is just something that I've noticed over time.
