looking for headphones under $100 with great soundstage

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi  all,

new on this forum,

after having read  a lot about the Brainwavz HM3 headphones, finally got them.

first of all i must say that i have been using for years cheap Philips SBC HP195 and when

trying the Brainwavz  it was a big disapointment since i felt the sound was congested, narrow, without space and 3 dimentional like my old Philips were.

it felt like everything was in the center and on one row.

 (i had them burn for 24 hours and it didn t change much in that aspect)

 

 It ended up as a christmas gift for my little cousin.

 

 here i am looking for other ones which give you the ability to feel the space position of each instrument.

 i am also concerned about detail and not really about powerfull bass.

 budgetwise i would hope great bang for the buck but i could go up to 100$ for something extraordinary.

 

 Sorry for my English and thanks in advance for the help.

Brainwavz R3 have great soundstage, and clarity. The cable, and fit is a hit and miss though. I have a review up, check it out.

 

The majority of full size headphones with very recognizable sound stage at this price point (to the point of artificial) are in many of the consumer cans, but you may not like those probably.

 

Maybe check out some Audio Technica's?
