Here in the U.S.A. there are no places to try out (demo) "good quality" headphones, as for as I can tell.

I do not like most of the headphones they sell at BestBuy, so it's not a place for me to demo headphones anyway.

And usually you can mail order a headphone for a fair bit cheaper then BestBuy's prices.

In Japan, it seems they have demo setup for all headphones that are sold in a major headphone store (lucky them).

Chances are if you do enough research, whatever headphones you mail order, chances are you will keep them.

Well that sucks. Looks like I need to make a trip to Japan lol (one of these days tongue.gif ) Well I have a couple months until I can afford anything, so I will be doing lots and lots of research. Hopefully I make a good choice

There's no headphone demo on us? What a shame. In Asia, there are many, China, Indonesia, Singapore, Japan, etc

+1! There are many places where you can demo headphones in Singapore before purchase....but not all Asia country... Brunei doesn't even have a audio shop -_- when I grow up, I gotta open a small one here XD

Try going for Bose Q.C. 15, Senheisser Momentum, Sony MDR-1R or Bowers And Wilkins P5.. Better yet try and check out some reviews about them.

 

As you said, your budget is high enough to buy High-End headphones, so check them out. Hope this helps!

The cable company offers their "headphone library" so you can demo the big leagues.
