The secret to making these phones sound really outstanding is to carefully remove the glued-on paper "Acoustic Damper" from the corner of the driver grilles. This will give a more balanced "K240DF" type of sound (less nasal, not as much boom in the bass).
I Use This Headphone For Tracking Vocals! This is a Really Good Set of Headphones The Ear Pads Are Soft So They Don't Hurt The Ears...They Remind Me Of The AKG But Better LOL Without The Price Tag

I actually received these headphones for free from Sam Ash as the result of a slight communication issue regarding a purchase. It was a very minor issue, in my opinion, but the phone rep said they would include them in my order for no charge as a result. I think these are normally between $50 & $60. They sound pretty good and have a screw on jack adapter to plug the head phones into a normal jack or they can plug into a smaller jack like a computer. Great customer service and I have some decent headphones as a result. Thanks Sam Ash!

I was trying different headphones at the demo display in the store and was surprised at the good sound. I already have the Audio Technica ATH-M50 and Sennheiser HD280. I wore out the Sennheiser ear pads which kills the bass due to air leaks, and find the M-50 to be the best sounding. What I like about the Sr850 is the good clean sound, decent bass and semi open back. I use them for my drum monitor on my electronic kit. It lets in enough ambient sound to hear the band around me during rehearsal without having to take off the headphones to hear conversation or instructions. My Shure Se215 in ear monitors sound very good, but very isolated, even using an ambient mic. Same with the M-50.
I was looking for superior sounding headphones without having to break the bank... I found them here. Compared to Beats Studio, these cans are by far the best bang for the buck - they may not be as "pretty" or "hip" but they definitely take care of business. Nice deep bass, crisp highs - defined left/right separation. Currently, I'm using these in my home studio - PC/Mac, drum machine, and music production software, mixer and misc. outboard gear.

The sound is very rich, there is a very little static if not at all. I have small ears but rather big head, so the cups are not so comfortable. I had to took them off after 15 min and bent the steel rods.
Great for the money and very versatile. I reccomend these for anyone on a budget but still wants great response and audio quality. I am a reviewer for Sam Ash Music
