I've been lurking around the Stereophile website for some time, but finally decided to chime in. I'm fairly new to high end audio and with the dizzying array of headphone options, I'm looking to see what other jazz fans use and recommend for headphones. I was origianlly looking at the B&W P5's, but most of the reviews seem to point to them being really good, but not quite up to the cost.
I know the best thing to do is to go and listen to them, but I'm not sure where to even start with brands and models. I would like to stay under $400 - and like I mentioned, I primarly listen to jazz. I know there is another forum for headphones, but I wanted to see what the other jazz listeners look for in a good set of headphones in order to get the most out of my CD's, MP3 player, and vinyl.
Thanks in advance,
