Welcome aboard! Basic research is how it begins.  Hopefully you find what you’re looking for and come back for the rest of the fun.

Welcome to the club. We're all a bunch of enablers who will encourage you far down the rabbit hole of better sound.

What's your current setup? I know people tend to chime in with ideas and options when they have a baseline of what your current gear is.

Dive right in.

You can start a new topic on the Headphone Mania forum: https://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?board=147.0

It will help significantly if you can describe your current setup, your listening preferences (both genre and the things you like in terms of sound (e.g., you need heavy bass, you want a broad, expansive soundstage), and what you are considering or have as goals (e.g, I want solid state that connects to my computer or I want a setup that can serve double duty in my main 2-channel system).

And clearly indicate how much you might spend. It doesn't have to be exact, but it's really hard to give useful feedback if there is no ballpark on the cost. Keeping it less than $1000 is very different than "I could spend $2,000 to $3,000 if I find what I'm looking for."

It can be a frustration if someone starts a "what do you recommend" thread and piecemeal replies with critical information after the discussion gets going.

It's understood that your understanding and interests might evolve as the discussion goes, of course.

Have fun!

Planar or dynamic?
If planar check the warm Audeze LCD2-Classic at $800 or Hifiman Arya or Edition XS or other from his large range. Not being a expert in dynamic phones I canot suggest any.
