I think you will love your new headphones!
I don't think that dark necessarily implies heavy or veiled, I think that the latter two terms indicate that you're losing some energy or detail in the music. Makes me think of a Dynavector 10X5, warm/dark but still capable of picking up small detail and reacting quickly. Similarly, a bright headphone isn't necessarily shrill or tinny.
I can't get over how nice the Nighthawks feel, the rubber suspension for the cups is really an ingenious design and perfectly executed. Just enough play to exactly mold to your head, constrained enough to feel secure.
