neutral ?music on ear headphones

looking to possibly try music first headphones , budget would be around $200 (flexible , but not more than double ).. i listen to blues (acoustic guitar oriented, as well as electric guitar), classic rock and vocal oriented music...would like something that has a bit of low end punch as well, but neutral speakers (like ascend) are my preference.. thanks...

Not sure if you've already picked up some headphones but if not check out the KLH Ultimate One. They're on sale at music direct. Looking at the reviews the sound might be what you'd like. A mildly boosted low end but otherwise fairly neutral. Most headphones have a boosted bass and treble. Some unbearably so, for me anyways. The only truly neutral headphones I'm aware of are the AKG K240 Studio's. But they wouldn't have enough bass for you.
