Hi, i have been using Creative Aurvana Live 2 headphones for a year and a half. The headphones failed on warranty and i will get a replacement pair from the polish retailer x-kom.pl (can be same or higher priced).
What i did not like about the Aurvana Live 2:
-fatigue on top of head, due to poor design of metal frame (U-profile with sharp edges towards head) and to thin cushioning
-short cable (1,2m)
What i did like about them:
-good sound quality/characteristic
-proper cushioning around ears
I come for advice on what headphones to get as replacement. I want to spend up to 100 PLN on the upgrade, meaning that the new pair should be sub 100 dollars (400 PLN).
My use case shifted a little as i now have speakers for listening to music at home (Jazz, Electro-Swing and Metal).
Nowadays i use headphones mainly for listening to Spotify at work while working with CAD in a crowded open-space office (shared with purchasing -.-). Other uses are consuming content at home and playing FPS games under Windows.
Seeking over-ear headphones under 100 dollars (400 PLN). Preferred closed-back headphones with good sound isolation. Comfort and manufacturing quality are more important than sound reproduction. No preference on wired/wireless. Integrated microphone would be nice, but is not a must have. Combo-Jack preferred, pair will be used with Dell Precision 7520, Inspiron 7559 and an Android phone. I will not be able to install extra software on the Precision laptop so I expect them to work out of the box.
I found these alternatives, please help me choose or propose another pair from the offering of the retailer (link below has filters included).
