Hi everyone, I am looking for a decent bluetooth headphone primarily for attending long office meetings. I have been using two earphones and while I am happy with their performance, earphones aren't exactly meant for long meetings. It's not that I will not use it for music but I know that will be very limited. My requirements are following.

Budget - 10k
Sound quality - Decent but I am not looking for audiophile grade in this budget
Features - Active noise cancellation(must), Bluetooth, Microphone, USB type C charging port

I have shortlisted Sennheiser 450 BT/458 BT which meets all the criterias above. Although it's priced around 15k, I've seen good discounts bringing the price down to around 9k. Only two things I am sceptical about - comfort level and noise cancelling ability. It should not be anywhere around Sony XM3/Bose QC looking at the price difference but whether it's good enough for my purpose is the doubt.
Looking for first hand feedback from forum members. Also, if there is any other model which I have missed, please suggest.

If you have to get a HP with ANC at your budget without worrying about sound quality and do not need the best ANC, then yes those Senns are decent choices. But I am not sure how good their mics are.

I have been using the HD450 BT for few years now. Within that budget (7-9k), I feel it is the best, but 15 k is steep. I see SONY WB-XB900N for a little extra in Amazon but have not heard them. My only complaint with the HP is its earpads. If you have long ears , then skip them. For calls the mic is pretty good. Did not have any issues till now and for work purpose I use it in wired mode.
