Hello everyone.

Being honest here this is my first time considering buying real headphones (and upgrading from the standard mobile trashy ones).

After a lot of searching and reviews i think I have come down to some picks but i am always open to suggestions. (location is Switzerland / France ).

So, I am interested in Wireless over-ear closed back headphones.
ANC is not mandatory, good to have i guess as long as it can be turned on/off.
My source will be my Samsung/ android device and my windows Laptop
I mainly listen to rock and metal so i guess i would enjoy a little extra bass.

I plan on using In-house, while jogging, in gym so i guess Good Noise isolation should suffice.

SO far i have the below in mind:
Sennheiser hd 4.40 BT (or the 4.50 if you so suggest)
V-Moda Crossfade II
Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 (M2)
Plantronincs Backbeat PRO 2 (SE or not SE)
and the Audio Technica ATH-AR5BT and the ATH-ANC700BT

My main Search is via Amazon and Ebay in order to check the 180$ max mark.
Glad to enjoy a really good cheap deal if found or squeeze something on top for an important upgrade is needed

P.s1 If i am missing something please let me know
P.S2 I don't really know if i will need any extra accessories with my choice so if it not too much of a hurdle kindly let me know.

Sorry for the long post.

I would recommend the Audio Technica ath ws99bt, but the fit is somewhat loose, so they may not be best for jogging and working out. From your list, the Momentum would fit better, and does rock music decent enough. Mids are a little recessed - it's got some solid low end.

Hello, Thank you very much for that Mhog55.

After a lit bit of ebay searching i have come down between
Plantronincs Backbeat PRO 2
Sennheiser hd 4.40 BT (or the 4.50 if you so suggest)
and the recomended Audio Technica ath ws99bt

I also checked
PSB M4U 2 - Black Over-Ear that seem promising.

Could you please evaluate or suggest something.
I am mainly looking for a manufacturer refurbished pair in order to save some money. or if you see a promising deal could you let me know

Thanks :)

I have a pair of the ws99bt for sale in the classifieds. They are about as close to new as you will find. I have no idea how much it would cost to ship to Switzerland though
