Sound quality general comment
  • Original Sound Fidelity: A
  • Recommendation: B-
  • Personal preference: C


The Behringer HPS3000 is almost a supercompatible of the Behringer HC2000 reviewed immediately above, improving on the HC2000's fatally poor midrange and increasing its low-frequency reproduction ability to near sensible levels.


It is clear that Behringer has the essentials in its own right, such as high resolution and not bad midrange texture reproduction, but it is not recommended for use as monitor headphones because of a rather critical problem with the localization of instrumental sounds.


Vocals sound well-detailed, so they may be worth considering as sub-monitors for vocal checks. However, even in that case, it is worth remembering that the HPX2000, which is available in the same price range, may be even better.
