      What a great deal! Comfortable, great sound quality and really affordable! The open ear is better for ambient listening and its able to reproduce a wide dynamic range. Great for listening to music or working in the studio. I'm a sales associate at Sam Ash Music Ontario.

        I've owned 3 pairs of these and have loved all of them. For the value they are the best. The sound quality delivers plenty of bass and clear treble. I use it for my ipod and cd player with excellent performance. I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music

          Need headphones that sound good but won't break the bank? These SR850's are hard to beat. With the AKG240M styling, they are comfortable to wear and actually sound GOOD at this price point (I usually don't even bother looking at anything under $100). Excellent for tracking inside the studio.

            Great headphones for the price. I can wear these headphones all day. Very comfortable, over the ear fit. They don't completely isolate you from outside noise, but some people like it that way. I personally like a bit more isolation, but you can't beat the sound quality and comfort fit.

            Comments about Samson SR850 Professional Studio Reference Headphones:

            There are very few manufacturers making open back headphones now adays let alone at this price point for something of this quality. The headphones are comfortable over long periods of use and with the open back still allow you to slightly hear outside sources if that is something that you are needing. The velvet ear pads are also an improvement over the previous model. Don't hesitate on purchasing these headphones you will not be disappointed.

              I love these headphones. I have to ride on the subway everyday for 45 min and these headphones make me look forward to my ride. I can hear every little nuance in my music, and i cant hear the people on the train. And its not like i have the volume so high my ears are bleeding they cut out the surrounding noises rightaway before you even hav music on. Ive never liked in ear buds, they dont fit in my ears and no way you can share music with ear buds thats gross. These are really the best option i think. dont worry about them being a little big the retro musican look is cool so big headphoes all the way. "I am a sales associate @ Sam Ash"

                Comments about Samson SR850 Professional Studio Reference Headphones:

                I was looking for a pair of headphones I could use in the studio, while recording, while practicing, and while on the train. I feel like I got my money worth here. The sound was clear and the bass cut through. These even worked great on the subway. It wasn't sound isolation, but at a decent level it cut out most outside noise. I hate those fake sounding sound isolation headphones anyway, it's never a true sound.

                  Needed a satisfactory pair of cans for listening to some mixes and these worked out great.
                  The sound was clear and I was surprised at the bass response.

                    I have owned these headphones for about a year now, and I am amazed by their performance for the price. I use these for listening to music, practicing guitar at night, and for checking mixes, and they do a great job for all these jobs. The open back design gives a very natural sound with great separation. You get good, deep bass, good mids, and sparkly highs. They are a full size over-the-ear headphone, so they aren't the best for carrying around with you, but for home or studio use on a budget, these cannot be beat.

                    Comments about Samson SR850 Professional Studio Reference Headphones:

                    I have looked at a lot of headphones in the $50 - $200 range and these are as good as they get. At the $60- $80 level (their approx street price), they are the best...hands down. They also easily surpass much more expensive and "bigger name" brands.

                    VERY good separation. The 50mm drivers deliver a strong, distinct bass, with clear mids and crystal highs. If you want truly great sound rendering, these will be perfect. These are "open-ear" design, so they give a very natural and wide sound.

                    I like the adjustable headband ...more flexible and comfortable than most; also... not too tight but hold on well. However, they are not small...they do cover the ear, so they are not designed to fold up and go places with you.
