Discussion on: How much does audio quality matter to you with your headphone music?

For me I have studio quality reference headphones that can translate frequencies from 5Hz to 20,000kHz and use the highest quality streaming or 24-bit (or at least 16-bit) WAV files to listen to.

If you have high quality audio then it's worth getting high quality headphones for detail, however if you only listen to 320kbps mp3s, then there's no point having the high quality as the detail won't be in the recording.

Also if you can't tell the difference, and a lot of people can't, then go for the cheaper option!
