Those cheap ones most likely have class 2 radio receivers. Range is 10m or 30ft unobstructed

Class 1 with higher end headphones have a range of 30m or 100ft. Think about that when you're in the house. Wireless means freedom to move anywhere

When going for wireless headphones i insist wireless range be better than smaller BT headsets. Fortunately both grind & JBL have good range.

Up to you to decide which you want.

Read some more and ask owners what they think.

Battery is less with on ears but then weight is as well.
I think a visit to Croma is in order for sampling JBL.

Cowin E7 has the best wireless range but won't pair with more than one device simultaneously

Cowin sound quality isn't as good as the JBL either

Then should I go for them?
What other criteria besides price ?

Comfort, weight, ease of use, battery back up etc play a role too

and then there is sound quality, flat, coloured

How long will they be worn in one session etc

One thing is clear, range will not be an issue with any of the four models suggested. This at least ensures you get good reception which matters for wireless.

Ankxxs,
Please do audition of the headphones in a nearby mall, since headphones are very personal - some people like "over the ear" or some like "on the ear". I have seen ladies more often like on the ear so that it does not interfere with their big earrings :) 4.5 BTNC are over the ear.
Also, I am wary of the 4.5 BTNC SE (Special Edition) - these sell at half the price of the regular 4.5 BTNC (only during certain sale), so what is so special that they sell half the price? Also, they are not listed in the official Sennheiser site in any country.
If NC is not really required, 4.4 BT has a good enough isolation

Am wondering about that too but there's been lightning deals for things at half price before. My router what i paid and what people here who got on a lightning deal paid. Same product, half price
