Mid range headphone recommendation

I'm looking for a mid range headphone mainly for meetings and music purpose. So mic noise cancellation is a big plus also to have a decent base and doesn't have to be wireless. I've come across the following products at pcandparts:
https://pcandparts.com/kingston-cloud-stinger/
https://pcandparts.com/a4tech-bloody-m6 … g-headset/
https://pcandparts.com/thermaltake-shoc … g-headset/
https://pcandparts.com/kingston-cloud-s … 1-headset/

Does any one have any recommendation on any of this items? Or does any one have another recommendation to look at?

Hello,

Check out the Anker Soundcore Life Q30 which are a very good pair of headphones for the price and competes with other high-end quality brands. Simply type the name of the headphones on YouTube and check the review of  the channel "ShortCircuit".

I have the pros and they're perfect honestly, but I think they're out of his budget

What about the Arctis 3 or Arctis 5? They're more in my budget.

How is the arctis 5 in your budget but the 7 isn't, the 5 is more expensive or am I wrong? I got my 7 for 100$.
Edit: I see now, for some reason the arctis 5 is cheaper on OLX.
But yes the arctis 5 is great as well.

Yes I saw it on olx so I guess they're open box items. I don't know the sellers so I can't know if they're trustworthy.

Re: Mid range headphone recommendation

I am using HyperX Stinger since 3 years and loving it, will list the cons and pros of it.

Pros:
- Very light weight and comfortable, head clamp force is minimal
- Microphone mutes when it swivels upward, earcup rotates for a better resting position
- Sound quality is very good, 50mm drivers, it doesnt overdo the bass
- You can find replacement for the cup leather cover when it wears out
- Doesn't heat your ears a lot and I am able to wear it during work hours and evening gaming sessions without issues

Cons:
- All plastic and cable is not braided so you will hear the cable touching you in your ear if you are not playing music
- Microphone swivel means it will have issues in future which what happened in my case, I had to open it and adjust the cable to make it work again
- Cables and Microphone are not detachable
- Size adjustment mechanics would get lose with time and needs some screws tightening
- If used with a Laptop the angling on the plug will make it wear out faster

I still think it is a good deal in this price range, I personally using HyperX headsets since years because I prefer a mid bass level to be able to hear footsteps in games, also so I dont get headache when I hear music loudly during work

The ones from MZone aren't openbox. I bought mine there.

Is the arctis 7 /5 heavy? Does it cause fatigue after a while?
I'm looking for ny first wireless headset for studying/gaming, mainly concerned about the weight as i've never tried one before and my head is kind of small.

If you can save and get these, I would very much recommend:
Audio-Technica ATH-M50X

Cost ~140$ and very good value for money.
