it's always best to do a good amount of research however just to make sure you're happy with your choice, if some other people can give you more suggestions to look into as well as that.
the hd600 fit what i was looking for but i have no portable needs and i also listen to alot of female indie bands and female singer-songwriter stuff and overall styles that i read from people were solid with the headphone so it wasn't just based on shoegazer entirely but that plays into it.
also i plan to spend an extra $200-250 on an amp/dac most likely a modi/magni stack or o2/odac stack just because i found the research into amps/dacs absolutely dreadful and a nightmare... and they seemed to be recommended and fairly affordable and so i'd probably just end with one of those.
i'd read up on different threads, a good place to start would be to determine a budget and search the forum for people asking what headphone to get within that budget and then compile a few choice together on what looks good to you and then start to research them through the appreciation threads, etc.
i spent 2 months or so researching before i finally reached my conclusion on what's best for me.
