      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.

      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.

        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

            Comments about Samson SR850 Professional Studio Reference Headphones:

            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.
