I want a high quality bino to last a long time and not to be too expensive. Thats why I want either a Kahles or a Minox.

Which do you think will be best, Kahles 10x42 or Minox HG 10x52?

It will be used to everything. Sitting in stand, stalking, dawn, dusk.

There are LOTS of high quality binoculars today that will not require sacrifice of parts of your anatomy.  Why are you stuck on those two?  Kahles has done zilch with their binoculars for years.  Minox makes many lines of decent glass.    I personally think the Minox comfort bridge BL line is pretty good.  What is your budget?

Well im stock at these to (also Minox BL bridge 10x52) - Because they fit my budget. Kahles binos and Minox HG/BL is pretty much the same price.

I've also looked at Meopta but their binos seems to be more expensive.

You seem to have settled on either the Kahles or the Minox.  I have or have owned both
Kahles and Minox binoculars.  They both have quality optics, and have several model ranges and
that means it is hard to offer advice.
 
My advice is to try them out, and get the ones that you like best.  You may have heard the famous
James Bond slogan, it is "For your Eyes only".

From what I have seen, the Kahles has a warmer view, slightly yellow and is a little bit easier on the eyes.  The Minox seems to have a "whiter" light than the Kahles.  I also think the Kahles has a slightly larger FOV.
