      • studio recording and playback listening

      Comments about Samson Sr550 Over-Ear Studio Headphones:

      After working in a recording studio for 15 years, I've been through so many different types of studio headphones. None have just that "right amount" of treble AND bass response. And then I found Samson's Sr550. What a great sound. A little adjustment really goes a LONG way, for recording, playback and "listening for pleasure." Love the light weight feel around my head. There's none of the "achy ears" from prolonged use here. Samson should by out Sony and take over their studio headphone department. I will definitely be purchasing more of these babies for the studio. Cheers and THANKS, Samson! :)

      OK if you have small ears - sound is reasonably good

      • Very light

      • ear cups a little small for my ears

      • Listening to podcasts

      Comments about Samson Sr550 Over-Ear Studio Headphones:

      The headset is very light weight and won't weigh down you head even when worn for long sessions. However, I find the ear cups on the small side for "Over-Ear" headphones (which your ears should fit inside of). The audio quality is OK, they don't really stand out.

      Great headphone that came free with the DGX 660. Best deal ever and good sound and perfect when playing music without having others listen.

      Comments about Samson Sr550 Over-Ear Studio Headphones:

      The build quality was very disappointing the moment I took it out of its box; very plastic. The cable was thin and feels like its gonna rip. The moment I listened to them, it was full of bright and loud highs, too much for my young ears that I had to lower the treble because it was hurting my ears. But on the good side, the bass was deep and good. You could hear every instrument and detail of your music like never before. I recommend using them at home and lower the highs.

        Don't look like expensive product, but sounds exactly the opposite. Love the sound, only problem it's not insulated well.
