I am new to our community so please forgive my lack of technical knowledge and experience when I post a question.
I am enjoying my new AKG K7XX phones. They present an open, airy wide and up front soundstage. I am also using the Monk+ iems and find they have the same qualities with a little more warmth signature. In some ways, I find the $10 (US) Monks more satisfying than the AKGs.
After a month or reading headphone and iem reviews here and elsewhere, I often see detailed comments about the bass/mid/treble responses but often sometimes lacking soundstage commentary.
I am currently curious about iems < $100 that exceed especially in soundstage presentation with good depth and separation. At the same time, I want the music to be lively and engaging. Any suggestions?
I have ordered 4 inexpensive Chinese iems from Aliexpress and will comment when they arrive.
