Headphone Recommendations

Hey there!

I am looking for a high-quality pair of headphones. Mainly for mixing, sound design, as well as simply listening to music.
I listen/record mostly jazz, acoustic, and then various metal and death metal music. I would like something with adequate bass and low end, yet clarity for the mids and high end. Really just something good all-around! haha. Sound cancellation is also a high preference!
Price range is $100-$200 yet still open for more/less if it is worth it.
Comfort is also a big thing since my ears get sore easy when using headphones with stiffer pads.

Show me what you've got! Thanks, guys!

Awesome! I will check that out! I'm new here so I'm not too familiar with everything yet. 

I Appreciate it!
