Hi There,
I used to own only a HyperX Cloud Core. I was okay with the features and comfort, but it felt too heaty in the ear cups when worn for long hours, and maybe a little too heavy. The noise isolation also felt too much for me. As my HyperX Cloud Core is getting worn off, I am trying to find a new headset or headphones + microphone, which I will use for both music listening and gaming. I will most likely plug the headphones or headset directly to the motherboard. I need it to be:
Possibly below US$200 or US$150. I want to limit the price to these, but I can stretch the budget if necessary.
Without good sound isolation.
Decent sound quality, I listen to most music genres.
Cannot be a headphone with an attachable microphone, my country (i.e. Singapore) does not sell many attachable microphones. Desktop microphones are fine.
Decent microphone quality.
Large ear cups. My ears are very large :p.
I am okay with open back headphones or closed back ones, though I prefer
No Philips headphones, My country does not offer those.

Currently I have some headphones in mind, no microphones in mind:
Corsair HS50/70
Sennheiser HD559
AKG K612 (its the price of my budget without microphones, I know)
Creative SoundBlasterX H6 (unreleased)

Other recommendations are appreciated! Thank you!

I considered creative because it is cheaper in my country but yeah their headphones aren't really appealing to me. I am also considering the Sennheiser Game One, just waiting for a better price. Do you have other recommendations?
