I'm also in Summit County. The place to go is Time & Optics down in Millersburg. It's a bit of a drive, but definitely worth it. You can try out several different pairs and see which ones you like the most.
It helps to go on a cloudy/overcast day, so you can see which binoculars let through the most light in low light conditions.
After trying out several different pairs, I ended up going with Styrka S7 8x42, which I hadn't even considered. They're about the same price you mentioned.
