        Comments about Samson SR850 Semi-Open Studio Reference Headphones:

        my 5* rating is based on price to performance ratio..
        yes there are better sounding headphones out there,,in fact so many of them,,,but for the price its hard to beat,,.. must realize that it is a semi opened design so your not gonna get a very good isolation but will give u a good soundstage than a closed back design.. I have a Audio Technica M50's ,and though M50's are better, i sometimes feel for certain songs its sounds much better on the samson. They use the same drivers as the Superlux version, if you can find them i would get those...but this samson will do fine and then some, for beginner audiophiles...

        Comments about Samson SR850 Semi-Open Studio Reference Headphones:

        Samson describes these cans as studio reference; but in my opinion that is an optimistic stretch. Considering their discount price these are the best headphones for the money, but they do not rise to the level of studio reference. Bass is more than adequate, mids are somewhat flat, the upper registers slightly tinny but overall very good sound. The 32 ohm phones are easy to drive to deafening levels. They are quite accurate in sound delivery. Good isolation with oversized 50mm drivers and a decent soundstage depth derived from the semi-open design. If you listen via earbuds/earphones try these discount cans. The SR850's are one of the most comfortable headphones I've ever worn. Even after 6 hours, there is no discomfort or fatigue from extended listening sessions. Great is an understatement for the cost. Everyone should have a pair in their audio equipment inventory.I cannot speak on durability only having the SR850's for two days; but they appear to be able to withstand regular daily use. A must buy.
