Previously used Philips SHP1900, is there any better alternative?

I personally use Bose Quiet Comfort 35. Not used anything in 2k range recently. Always listen and buy audio equipment.

First narrow down on few models by looking at reviews on various sites (Incl marketplaces), then listen to them in nearby store and then buy what you like.

Which store lets you listen before buying? Only reliance digital near me has this option but its too limited.

Usually there are specialised audio stores (not chains like Croma/Reliance Digital) which allow you to listen to audio equipment from various brands before you buy. You can find details of such stores in Hi-Fi AV forums like Hifivision.

Premium brands such as Bose have their own stores with their entire product line ready for demo. They usually also have some nice, well trained salesmen to answer your queries. No recent experience with other brands as I exclusively get Bose products now.
