Default Starting to look for some cans... can anyone give me a place to start?

So I'm going to need some cans and I've never used anything other than cheap ear buds so I have no idea even where to start. Unfortunately it doesn't look like there are any stores in my area were I can go demo some either so I'll have to buy without hearing them first. Since I know there are some hi-fi guys here I'm hoping someone can at least give me a place to start my research or some preferred models to start looking into?

I'm not looking to spend too much especially since I have nothing to base an opinion on what I might like or dislike. I'd like to get away with $100 but if an extra $20-$30 gets me something that much better than I don't think I have a problem with that. Main concern is music quality - though I'm sure they will be used for movies and gaming at some point. I'm into home audio and I value a smooth response and a natural sound, maybe a hair on the warmish side? Clean midrange is a must though.

Thanks for any help anyone can give me.
