Hi, this is my first thread, i wuld like to ask you guy about what headphones get. Here is a summary:

Budget - Around 100 EUR

Source - Laptop and PS4 (optional)

Requirements for Isolation - It would be welcome

Preferred Type of Headphone - Over-ear

Past headphones- Sorry for the inconsistency but i tried once a Sennheiser 558 hd i think and i liked the isolation and confort, im actually using in-ear headphones for everything (also sennheiser but dont know the model)

Preferred Music - i usually hear rock (ACDC, the Clash, Queen, etc) i like to hear the sound of the guitars and drums, also Daft punk, Gorillaz and now hearing Post Malone and that sort of music. Also thinking of using it for gaming.

Location-Spain

I have been looking some headphones already but i cant decide if these would work on my laptop and which is better:

-AKG K240 MKII:https://amz.run/3MMP

-AKG K 271 MK II:https://amz.run/3MMQ

-Beyerdynamic DT 700 PRO-32 ohm:https://amz.run/3MMR

-Beyerdynamic DT 700 PRO-80 ohm:https://amz.run/3MMS

-Shure SRH440: https://amz.run/3MMT

-Sennheiser HD 599: https://amz.run/3MMO

I own the DT770 (80-Ohm & 250-Ohm), but never use them as I like better the sound of other headphones better.
I own the Sennheiser HD558, their sound is easy on the ear drums, makes it easier to use them for long periods of time, HD599 should be the same.
And the Sennheiser HD558 is very comfortable on my head, HD599 should be the same.
Also those Sennheisers work well with a lot of different sources.

Have you got any trouble with the wire of the sennheiser? I have heard that his quality is bad but never actually probe it
Does Sennheisser have replacement anywhere if thats the case?

Never had any issues with the headphone cable on my HD558.
