Default Headphone suggestions for musician needing quality headphones?

Hello! I am at college studying music education (jazz) and I've made it through the first semester without a good pair of headphones, but it was hell. I'm required to do a lot of transcribing and I think having a good pair of quality headphones would help me pick out the details without blasting my roommate and the neighbors with the stereo to hear the subtle nuances of a song. I would be transcribing mainly guitar parts if that makes a difference. I would also be using the headphones for casual listening as well.

I would definitely like to spend less than $200 on them, but I'm willing to go above that if it would make a noticeable difference. I live in Cedar Falls, Iowa. I want full-size headphones and I only plan on using them in my room. I don't know what "style" would be best for what I'm doing so I hope someone can help me with that. I like a tight, punchy bass, but I also like crisp highs. They need to be as defined as possible, with a good snap and decay so I hear the parts as clearly as possible. Overall, though, I'm looking for clarity in the guitar's range, which is roughly 82.4Hz- 1319Hz. The computer would be driving the headphones. I was recommended this site from another forum, so thanks for the help!
