Try a Creative Aurvana Live!/Denon D1000 ( Same thing ). Or perhaps M50 if you can get a good deal

does the m50 have very good bass and sound stage? does it need amp or extra sound card rather than the built-in of my motherboard?

Ultrasone HFI 580, $120 new, shipped.

 

Everything you described right there.

The M50 has decent bass, but an abysmal sound stage. Very small, cramped and "stereo." None of them need extra amps/soundcards. Your motherboard is likely ok. If it sounds noisy, hissy, or jiggles and cuts out a lot, then consider a simple Xonar DG (PCI), Xonar DGX (PCI-E) or Fiio E10 (USB).

 

Very best,

IMO Aurvana > m50 in sound quality. The CAL!'s beat the Philips in value for money too, and offers slightly better balance across the spectrum. Roomy soundstage, emphatic but not bloated bass and happy treble. For under $100 you can't go wrong. Perhaps the only problem is that the soundstage isn't as accurate as it could be - although for under $100 there's not much more to expect.

 

I don't know about the ultrasones since I haven't heard it.

The Denon D1k is discontinued. The CAL! is basically the same headphone, rebranded. (same drivers by Fostex)

well,initially i thought of audio technica AD700 as it does have amazing sound stage and imaging.but cancelled it due to almost zero bass.  so suggest me something which have as good sound stage and imaging as AD700 as well as very good bass

@MalVeauX does the ultrasone  meet my criteria?and is it better than AD700 in terms of sound stage and imaging?

No closed headphone will have the sound stage and imaging ability of an open headphone like the AD700. The AD700 unfortunately also has no low end, so sounds thin and anemic.

 

If you want sound stage with some low end ability, consider:

 

Hifiman HE-300

Ultrasone HFI 2400

Sennheiser HD558

Beyer DT880 PRO

 

They're above your listed budget, but worth the money.

 

Very best,
