I would recommend these.


I like these headphones very much. I practice my guitar with backing tracks on my computer. Closed end headphones did not allow me too hear my guitar enough. These semi-open headphones enable me to hear both very well. The only con is that they a little tight on my ears over time. Using ball between ear pieces hoping to stretch it out.



I would buy it again if anything happen to them.


Using it as a reference headphones for mixing. Very Comfortable and great frequency response.



Feel great and sound great!


incredibly solid pair of headphones for an insane price. Very comfortable, I"m worn them for hours and don't even notice they're on after a while. Great for tracking. I'm a professional musician and songwriter who has been mixing his own music for years; I'm not a mixing engineer by trade. If you're looking to something to reference in addition to working with studio monitors and other sources, this is a very solid piece to work with. I'm sure some professional mixers will want more space and information or if you're planning to mix an entire project on these (you're working in a space where you can't play your speakers loud etc). They are pretty flat and are easy to listen to for hours. The price is right on this one. I had one and i messed up the jack so I bought another pair. Thanks Samson!



I would buy this product again and again

Very comfortable headphones that do the job well.

Excellent for the price


perfect for the price.




Sounds great with just one simple modification


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

Nice Headphones


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!
