        Comments about Samson SR850 Professional Studio Reference Headphones:

        The Samson SR850 Headphones were modeled after the legendary AKG k240s. As an owner of both (multiple K240s to be honest), the SR850s are a great alternative for the studio on a budget. At half the cost of the K240s, and 90% the sound, they are perfect for doing mixing and mastering, without that pesky $40 AKG Cable breaking all the time!

        Comments about Samson SR850 Professional Studio Reference Headphones:

        These Samson SR850's are an incredibly accurate pair of mid-range headphones, perfect for mixing and mastering in your home studio. I've used them when creating tracks in programs like Maschine and Reason, simply because they're very precise and comfortable to wear over long periods of time. I would also recommend them for use while playing guitar and keys at home too, since they hold up in a wide range of frequencies and will sound good in a variety of applications!

        Good set of headphones for the price. Open back does allow sound to escape so I would not reccomend for professional recording with a hot mic, however these are still a great quality headphone for anyone recording on a budget.

            Can't really think of a situation where a pair of these wouldn't come in handy. I use them in the studio so that the musicians recording can have a nice listening experience, and I don't have to break the bank. I get compliments on them all the time! Great all around frequency response.

              Nice semi-open headphones. Really wide frequency responce. 10hz-30khz. You can hear everything and the harmonics! Large 50mm driver delivers rich bass. These headphones just do the job nicely for a very reasonable price! Over sized cups for comfortable feel.

                  I regularly use these headphones for silent practice with my bass amp. They have excellent low end response and sound great across all frequency ranges. I've also used them as reference headphones while tracking with my band. I find they are very comfortable, even when wearing them for extended periods of time.

                  I'd highly recommend these headphones to any musician or music lover.
