My circumstances are such that my portable setup will be where I listen to 90% of my music from. I'm ready to upgrade to some really good headphones and a portable amp (coming from Sennheiser HD 280 pro, unamped) and from the limited selection I can survey in my area, I like the B&W P7s the most.
My question is, if you were to only have one pair of headphones and for that pair to be your sole listening device, and it as required that said pair be portable, do you think the quality jump from something like the P7s/Momentum/HP50s to the JH13s/16s is large enough to warrant the extreme jump in price? I know that valuing sound quality in monetary terms is highly subjective and circumstance-specific, but given that I may not be able to audition the JHs for myself I was hoping you guys could give me some of your feelings.
