      Comments about Samson SR850 Professional Studio Reference Headphones:

      Not much to say about headphones, but these are very comfortable, over-ear styple headphones. They isolate well and have a balanced sound. For as littles as they cost, they are quite amazing.

        Comments about Samson SR850 Professional Studio Reference Headphones:

        putting these headphones side by side to some of the more expensive models.... its surprising the cost is so low. I actually preferred the 850s over some headphones that were twice the price.

        very light weight, great sound... you cant go wrong.

        the semi open back helps give a smooth low end and all around comfortable listening experience.

        whether mixing or just enjoying some tunes. these are well worth the $50 price tag

          Comments about Samson SR850 Professional Studio Reference Headphones:

          I use these cans for studio reference in my home studio. They get thrown around a lot and really stand up to the punishment. They sound great with litlle or no noise bleed. The sound is true and not colored, just like reference monitors should be. I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music.

              These are a great fit and I find the velour ear cups to be very comfortable when wearing for an extended period of time. They are great when I am practicing keyboard.

                These are great sounding headphones at an affordable price. Nice and clear, not as nice as a pair of Shure headphones, but they are a fraction of the cost. I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music.

                  Threw these bad boys on for a listening test with some familiar reference music. Everything was there from the thump of the kick drum to the air in the vocals! They are also just as comfortable as headphones twice and even three times the price! Great headphones for musicians/recording artists of any level.

                  For the price, these are a great entry level pair of headphones. I was actually impressed with the frequency response specs AT 10HZ-30KHZ. I FOUND THAT THESE HEADPHONES HAD EXCELLENT BASS RESPONSE. Great value for price.
