    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.

        Comments about Samson SR850 Professional Studio Reference Headphones:

        I'm primarily a video game enthusiast who also dabbles in some sound and video production on pc. Was looking at getting a nice studio grade headphone set for use with gaming and other recording on my pc at home. Was looking at several other more expensive brands like Sennheiser, Audio Technica, and Sony when i happened upon a thread written by a fellow music lover/pc gamer where he recommended these. Did a little more reading to find further praise from other people as well as that this was the OEM version of other much higher priced studio headphones. Picked up a pair a few weeks ago and have been nothing but impressed. It's hard to put into words how much better these sound in comparison to other consumer headphones and gaming headsets but i'll suffice to say that there is no comparison. These are the best headphones i've ever placed on my ears. Just being able to enjoy the subtle sounds in my music and games mix that was overshadowed or drowned out by other sounds and noise happening concurrently makes me a believer in paying for premium grade headphones. Best part about these has been that I've gotten the great sound at a fraction of the other ones i was looking at. Staff at Sam Ash was very helpful getting me to what i needed and even complimented me on my choice. Tempted to pick up a backup pair in case i should ever need them.

            Comments about Samson SR850 Professional Studio Reference Headphones:

            These are absolutely fantastic. The quality of the sound you get for these surely makes this product under priced. At first I was skeptical because of the brand and price and I am amazed and completely surprised at how great these headphones sound. They provide a clarity and detail in your recording at a superior level. Samson has out done themselves with these product. I will be buying 15 more pairs to replace all the headphones in my recording studio.
