Help, I’ve been using the same headphones for 16 years and now they’re discontinued

· Budget – $200 USD

· Source – iPhone/PC

· Requirements for Isolation – I don’t need or prefer a lot of isolation, some would be nice but I need to be able to get a sense of someone getting my attention at work without them having to jump through hoops or slap me in the face

· Will you be using these Headphones in Public? I will be wearing them at my work, I won’t be in close proximity to anyone, but it is a shared space

· Preferred Type of Headphone – Over-ear headphones are my absolute favorite

· Preferred tonal balance – I guess overall balance would be preferred, I do listed to music and like bass with that but I also listen to a lot of podcasts and I don’t want the voices to get muddy

· Past headphones – in 2006 I found the only headphones I could find that didn’t hurt my ears the Panasonic RP-HTX7, and for 14 years whenever they broke, I would buy a new pair. I loved the style retro and colorful, the comfort I could wear them all day no problem, the smooth adjustability (no clicks) and they sat on my ears in a way that didn’t hurt which in 2006 was very hard to find. But sadly, they are discontinued and there’s so much to consider about headphones now that I’ve very overwhelmed

· Preferred Music – I listen to alt rock, and pop rock, the killers, dua lipa, Mother Mother, Tegan and Sara, Bastille, Nicki Minaj ect. Also a lot of D&D podcasts and movies and tv shows too.

· What would you like to improve on from your set-up

  • something that has style, retro style like my beloved Panasonics,
  • I want really nice sound quality, not tinny or muddled,
  • I’d love it if they were wireless (but I don’t know if that would be possible at my price point)
  • I’m in a place where I can afford to buy something nice for myself and I’d like this to be a bit of a treat, something special that makes me feel special.
  • I need to be able to wear them for the majority of my 40hr work week.
  • Headphones I’ve been looking at and why I’m nervous about them
  • Master & Dynamic MH40 (wired/Wireless)
    • Pros
      • ticks the stylish box in a big way
      • looks like it’s good quality materials
      • claims to have a good overall sound
      • has a wireless version
      • has a smooth no click adjustability
    • Worries
      • Too heavy for wearing 8hrs a day?
      • wireless version is expensive
  • Cowin E7 Pro
    • Pros
      • Nice price
      • Okay styling
      • Wireless
    • Worries
      • Sound quality?
      • Does the adjustability cause clicking?
      • Are they too bulky
  • Panasonic RP-HTX90 Retro
    • Pros
      • Theoretically they should just be the wireless version of my favorite headphones
    • Worries
      • Lots of bad reviews across multiple websites and videos

If you could help me either learn more about the 3 pairs, I’m considering or recommend something else I would really appreciate it. I am definitely over my head tying to find something to replace my go to headphones.

Are the Master and Dynamic MH40s any good? I am planning to get the Sennheiser Momentums for around £220 ($320) but I really like the look of the MH40s which are around £320 ($460). Are they of similar sound quality and if so do you think the extra £100 is worth it?
