The Z55s offer exceptional detail and clarity with an immersive soundstage and frequency response that's impeccably balanced. The Z55s deliver all the subtle elements of a mix. No hype, just the ultimate in sound reproduction, comfort and convenience.

Sound quality means little if your headphones aren't completely comfortable. With genuine lambskin ear pads, the Z55s provide the ultimate in comfort and luxury for marathon mixing and listening sessions. 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 Z55s was to create a pair of headphones that aren't overly hyped, but play to experienced audio professionals. The Z55s feature a large 45mm driver, providing the widest, yet most balanced and detailed sound field of the entire Z Series line. These headphones don't trade audio quality for cost or convenience.

Both durable and lightweight, the Z55 headphones sport a sleek, low-profile modern design with chrome accents. As closed-back style headphones, the Z55s provide effective sound isolation by limiting unwanted background noise. For added portability, the Z55s 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. Three detachable audio cables (straight, coil, with microphone and call/answer control) are included for overall convenience.

Awesome Sound, Comfort, and Accessories


Awesome set of headphones here with next to no compromises. This set meets or beats sets in its class with the same pricetag. They sound fantastic and with large 45mm drivers and massive frequency response and sturdy comfortable design, this set would please all but those who cannot shrug off the fact that you can get a studio/audiophile set of headphones for $150.




Awesome headset


Used to listen to music, also for electric drum set, great sound. Good quality headset.




Amazing sound and super comfortable!


The Z55's from Samson are an excellent pair of headphones. They have a great fit, incredible sound, and are perfect for many applications. I like to use these for artists when they're tracking, or just for casual listening. It includes a cable with a microphone on it so you can answer phone calls while using these too!




Samson Z55


Here's the BIG boy of the Samson z series Headphones. This is the top of the line with even lower frequencies for pure uninterrupted sound. Your gonna hear everything with these babies. Sure they're a little more on the pocket, but the best is always worth it. Come into one of our stores and give them a try, you'll be impressed.

The Flagship Z


This is what happens when Samson decide to go above and beyond making alternatives. This Z55 is the flagship sibling in the Z series, and everything about it shows the flagship badge. Upon first touch, you'll feel the premium nature of the beast. The earpads have superior comfort and the heft just screams quality. But what about the sound? Did you think that Samson would mess that up after their successful Z series? These cans go the next level. No sibilance! No veil. Just clarity. Burn in? Relatively low, if any. Right out of the box, these babies are ready to lay down tracks for hours. Might we have a new standard? Take a listen!

Great 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.

Great quality affordable headphones


These are fantastic quality headphones for the price. The sound is crystal clear and you can pick up every piece of a mix. The earpads are comfortable and fit anyone. I was blown away at how good these sounded, I'd definitely recommend these for anyone producing music.

The best headphones from Samson


The Samson Z55 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 (one of the cables even have a microphone on it so that if you are listening to your iPhone you can stop mid song and take a phone call.

Incredible bang for the buck


These are some of the most comfortable and professional sounding headphones I have ever used. As soon as you put them on, you will realize that you will be able to wear these for hours without having sore ears when you're finished. The extended bass really helps balance out the frequency range, giving you a very accurate representation of how your mix actually sounds. This is great whether you are using them to record/mix/master or if you just want to listen to your music the way it was intended to sound. This is a real hands on product review by Steve at Sam Ash Music in Lyndhurst, OH.
