HD 598Cs on amazon sale for $100 https://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-HD-598-Cs-Headphone/dp/B01JP436TS
I've gone through all the clicks, total cost landed is with the excellent current exchange rate is R1,688.09. Its a steal at that price!

Discontinued Sennheiser Momentum On Ears @R855 also at Mitech here: ://www.mitechdirect.com/shop/hifi-multimedia/headphones/on--over-ear-headphones/sennheiser505982-momentum-on-ear-ivory/


Ridiculous value IMHO.

Very good value for money. Ear cups a bit small and more on ear than over ear like the Senns HD202. Furhter good sound for active noise cancellation:

Check this out on loot.co.za, https://www.loot.co.za/product/kgtp-3517-g260

These also very good sound and active noise cancellation. I own the previous model, still going strong with no issues, but think the Philips mentioned above is more value for money at current discounted price:

That money can buy a Soekris DAC1541 which is both dual-mono discrete R2R ladder DAC and balanced headphone amplifier.

^^^ Sure.

The challenge with both, of course, is that they're not available locally to demo.
They might both be great headphone amps.
The one might be better than the other. Who knows.
The Questyle products might also be very good.

Until someone brave brings something in it's all theoretical.
