 I am from Cochin, Kerala and lived most of my life in KSA - Al Jubail. What about you? I am currently located in Bangalore.  Cheers,
 Under 5k open back headphones are too few. Unsure of how much is the leakage but an Ahuja AHP-1800 might be your best bet. They are rebranded Takstar hi2050.  Regards,
 So gaming and movies more than music ? Why do you need isolation then ? Why not then go for an open can? They will give you a more expansive field of sound.   If you are considering open ones I would urge you to consider the Ahuja AHP-1800 for a mere 3k INR this might be a better bet for your needs since they are rebranded Takstar Hi2050 which have been favourably reviewed and compared against the Beyers. Here is a test sound to give you an idea.  
@ithehappy   A little testing water with a great risk-return - Ahuja re-brands Beyer inspired Takstar Hifi 2050 . Since they are open back, except for isolation they might check all your boxes.  Check up Headfi for a comparison with Beyers.    https://www.rstore.in/buy-online-compare-ahuja-ahp-1800-wired-headphones/p/itme4xc6jefu8j8t
 Those look a lot like Zero Audio Duoza which are also DD but 3 times the price. Titanium tweeter - quite impressive. Thanks @aaDee 
 Beyers have pretty good dynamics but the 770 and 990 Pros have quite awful Frequency response which is what makes it 'fun' to listen to & could well be your cup of tea. If you are treble sensitive there is spike just below 10KHz that can be annoying if you listen to a lot of electronica - claps can be thorns. You would definitely need an amp and a FIIO E11 will do fine.In your price range its hard to have a 'significant' step up with isolation but my experience with the...
 Ribbons don't have any problems with dust. With E-stat the use of wrinkled mylar as dust protection is common from the 80's, but you need HV tested torroids for optimum sound output since they will be functioning in reverse as step-up. A bigger problem with E-stat is the humidity and how it can cause changes to the coating on the mylar. But then Wachara Chin has made E-stats which Innerfidelity claims to measure as good as the SR-009, he lives in Thailand!!!! I have heard...
 And the CD3k?  .... I have not heard any headphones for months now. Busy with life and ooh yeah my speaker design, running from 600 Hz and up.  
 Why would Sony write or print against their own advertising? The SA5k manual is a joke when compared to the impressive Qualia one. Ultra wide FR, 70 ohms voice coil, 50 mm dia and the same design all imply similar/same driver just differently engineered. Check up Head-fi, there are many modders and users confirming Bio-cellulose on Q010 & SAxk to simply overlook it as speculation. Like I said, you have just fallen prey to fancy terminology.  You are welcome to visit me...
  You are wrong and right ....A 'composite' by definition has more than 1 material constituents. The SAxk drivers were made using a nano-composite of Biocellulose and some plastic or fibre glass, I don't know which. It was just called 'Nano-composite' probably coz Sony's headphones required a face-lift after their CDs/Rs & opted for fancy marketing terms, which naturally is the bulk of marketing. Below are 2 images confirming they had invested in too much bacteria for more...
