The secret of the search for perfect sound is that it never ends. In many cases, you might find sound isolation and higher quality easier to afford with headphones. Mixing on headphones works fine, especially with reality checks on audio monitors. You might be tired of standard issue headphones like the Sony MDR-V6 or MDR-7506 (preferred by The Wirecutter), but still want to avoid frequency manipulations of popular lifestyle headphones like Beats Audio. Accurate reproduction and flat frequency response isn't just a matter of more money, but an adventure in trial and error.
While there are a ton of places to get advice and reviews of headphones, dedicated websites provide the best access to information and experience.
