Binocular recommendations?

Hi. I am just getting back into birding after many years. I'd like to get a new pair of binoculars and need help in deciding what to buy. I'd like to keep it under about $550. I wear glasses and want to be able to keep them on. Any suggestions? Thanks! P.S. Is there any place around the Towson area where different binoculars can be tested in store?

I have these and like them a lot.

The 10x makes it that much easier to see birds and the 43 vs. the typical 42 allows more light in for a great image.

I'm an avian field tech and my job depends on what I can see and hear. These have been great for me. The only thing I dislike is that the focus wheel is rather slow compared to my previous binoculars...eagle optics 8 power pair.

Best,

~Jenifer
