Edit: Actually it is the overall sound that is the "best part" but yes they have a magnificent sense of space and instrument placement due to the open back design.

Alright then you should be fine with it ;)
I would have thought there were a lot of places where you can try out gear in NYC (i don't know how long it takes for you to get there)
maybe ask around on here and go out on a day you aren't busy.
Digital to analog converter. I don't know which is your best choice at that price though.
You better off with DAC/amp combo, perhaps Fiio E10/E17 will be a good choice
