Looking for recommendations


Novice Member
I currently have some old Alienware Ozma 5 headphones. They've served me well but are getting a bit worn after twelve or so years, so I'm thinking about replacing them.

I mostly play single player games, generally RPGs/open world, so a microphone is the least of my concerns. I would also like to use them for movies and streaming. I'm considering open back headphones, although I realise I might be able to hear my computer whirring away in the background.

At the moment the top contenders are both Philips headphones. The SHP9500s and Fidelio X2HRs. I know new versions are coming out now and I may wait for more reviews to come out before deciding. But, in the meantime, I'd be interested in opinions on these headphones or recommendations for others.
