I just received my JVC HA-RX900 ($72) from UPS tonight, I'll let you know how they sound after a few days break in.
Denon AH-D1001K are going for $80 mail order if you Google around.

Hmm, for your genre I might suggest AKGs, I remember they're quite good for jazz.

Just as an aside, I think it's interesting that you try to build your system around your amp, since most people start the other way around.

Good Luck
