Hello! I'm a "beginning" audiophile looking to purchase my first audiophile headphones. My budget is between $200 and $300. I listen to many genres including: rock, blues, big band/swing, some country, and some jazz. I mainly listen to upbeat but not necessarily "adrenaline-rushing" or dance music (this includes genres such as metal, electronic, dance); I like to be more neutral, I suppose. Sound is very important and I also wear headphones for a very long time so comfort is very important.
Also, would I be better off buying online or buying in-store? I am looking online at in-store prices and they are about $50 - $100 greater than what I could probably find used on amazon.
