If you are happy, that is all that matters. Try going to a high end audio store and trying out some headphones. I don't live in a crazy city (I live in Toronto), and there are stores here that have rows of high end headphones to try. It is pretty unreasonable to buy a product that is that price and not be able to try it, especially when it is such a subjective type of product.
As I've ventured down the high end audio rabbit hole, I found myself doing the same. But I feel like a lot of people within the hobby fail to simply enjoy where theyre at. To each their own though. Some find the thrill in the hunt itself, rather than the prey. I just have to keep myself in check though so I dont get too picky or accustom to one kind of sound. I just wish I could try before I buy. There arent too many shops in this area where I can do that. Only meticulous research and a reliance on return policies. Havent found a pair yet that I dont like though

I use mine when I walk right out of my phone. For prog and power metal, they do well in my opinion. I find the bass makes for a slightly more immersive experience in games. You may lose some precision, but the experience is much more fun in my opinion. I hope you enjoy them. There shouldn't be any issues for what you want them for.
