Ideal for studio tracking/mixing, as well as producer/DJ track monitoring, the Z45s provide dynamic audio with the clarity and depth required for critical listening.

Sound quality means little if your headphones aren't completely comfortable. With genuine lambskin ear pads, the Z45s provide the ultimate in comfort for hours of fatigue-free enjoyment. An adjustable cushioned headband also adds to a comfortable experience when listening on the go or in the studio.

Samson's goal when designing the Z45s was to create a pair of headphones that aren't overly hyped, but play to experienced audio professionals. The response of the Z45s is noticeably warm and wide in mid-range detail, with clarity representative of the entire Z Series line. These headphones don't trade audio quality for cost or convenience.

Both durable and lightweight, the Z45 headphones sport a sleek, low-profile modern design with chrome accents. As closed-back style headphones, the Z45s provide effective sound isolation by limiting unwanted background noise. For added portability, the Z45s feature collapsible 90° rotating ear cups that allow the headphones to sit completely flat when being transported, or folded up and placed in the included carry pouch. Detachable straight and coil audio cables are included for overall convenience.

Im a recording arts student and these headphones were exactly what i was looking for. The sound is just so clear and trust me, they can get loud, so i dont need to turn them up too much to clearly hear my favorite music or to hear my mixes. Overall, they were well worth thier price.

Z45 Takes Aim at Established Brands


It's clear that Samson is taking aim at its established rivals in the Audio industry, and they have been proving that they are a force to be reckoned with at the entry level areas. So how does this one fare? The Z45 is a strong contender. Sound is the most important factor in choosing a pair of cans, and the Z45 delivers it in spades. More refined than the younger siblings Z25 and Z35, these cans can be a proper workhorse in the studio. They are comfortable too, which is good news for the long studio sessions. If you are a DJ or just a listener, well then you're really treating yourself, aren't you? Sonic ear candy, indeed.

Great sounding headphones


Great pair of headphones! The close back design makes them great for isolating noise or using as monitoring headphones while recording. The extended bass response is perfect for listening and enjoying music for long periods of time but they are so comfortable you are less likely to experience any fatigue.

Fantastic studio headphone!


Samson's Z45 is a fantastic step up in the Z series for someone looking for a reliable, quality headphone. Larger ear cups make these even more comfortable, while retaining the soft leather padding. The replaceable cable is a great advantage, since so many people buy new headphones simply because of a band connection. Improved frequency response and sound isolation make this a great headphone for the most discerning of engineers and DJs. *Staff reviewer, Store 35 Lyndhurst, OH

Great sound and quality


These are great for mixing, tracking or for DJing. The ear pads are comfortable and not bothersome. The sound quality is great for the price and they can be used for all sorts of projects. I'd recommend these for anyone looking to relieve their ears for long mixing and tracking work.

Amazing sound and quality


The Samson Z45 is very comfortable and has a great flat sound which is perfect for studio recording. Fully collapsible and each ear cup can turn 90 degrees which also works for DJs. Nice sleek design and a detachable cable meaning less chance of the wire being ripped out.
