Need New Headphones Under 2k

Hi guys. I'm currently using Philips SSHP2000 over the over headphones and I love them. But has its toll on them are the cables have started to get disconnected so I have to bend them here and there to get it working.

I now need a new pair of over the ear headphones. I have these requirements -

Budget - Max 2k. few hundred more of its worth it.
Music I listen to - heavy metal

I'll be wearing them for extended periods of time while working so comfort is a priority. Any suggestions of such headphones?

If you can extend your budget a bit go with the Audio Technica ATH M20x. I have used them personally (a friend of mine has these) and they are very comfortable and the sound quality is unbeatable for the price. I had seen them drop to 2.1K on paytm once, but since then these are sold for around 2.8K. Try your luck. I have the Sennheiser HD202II, but I won't recommend them as they are very uncomfortable for anything over 30min.

As other options you can consider the Phillips SHL3300 or the Samson SR850. I have no idea how these sound, but if what people say about them are to be believed, each one of them are great pair of headphones, particularly, the Samsons. The SR850s are semi open in nature, so they leak a lot of sound. They are also sold as Superlux HD 681 which too have great reviews. However people claim that the highs on these can be a bit overwhelming at times.

I own HD681: You MUST mod them, otherwise the treble will kill your your ears.

SR850 is an excellent choice: go for it. Better than my HD681

I have SR850 (Headphone) and KZ Ate (earphone)

SR850 is the best headphone you can buy for soundquality under Rs 2000 but it requires a capable audio source (Prefer an external DAC).
Id recommend KZ Ate first, since its only Rs 611 and gives awsome audio quality for the money.. But you need to ship it from aliexpress which can take 20 days :/

+ 1 for samson With external DAC but may sound decent with current generation MB drivers

Get Samson SR950 instead of 850[still treble heavy on some tracks & most important not for longer use as sweaty ears due to pleather pads]
