I purchased it few years ago and then decided to upgrade to more expensive 80+$ Phillips. I have underevaluated these headphones. It is excellent.

Great Value

This is my first pair of headphones of this style and I am very happy with them. I use them when editing dialog and music in videos.

Adequate headphones, for a very decent price

For me, most definitely I am not a stereo phonics snob, I just need a pair of adequate and comfortable headphones! My listening pleasure, at this time goes no further probably than what I can gather on YouTube or any other musical source. I just need something to curl up in a corner with my laptop and be all by myself and my own little world and these work! Fairly rugged, I do bang them around a bit, if I get a year or two off them I'll be happy. This is where the good deal price from B&H really counts.

Nice Reference Headphones

These are good for home or studio, I would not use them for travel as they are open back and everyone can hear what you are listening to. These are semi clones AKG K240's or Superlux HD681.

Great Headphones

Headphones are perfect for long listening sessions

Good Starter Headphones

The headphones have worked great for video editing. The only thing to remember is that they are open-back so the sound can leak out. But other than that the sound is great and it was well worth the money!

They work okay

It's a good pair of headphones, feeling is plastic-y, not really digging it, if you are particular about build construction I would probably go for another model. All in all they fit my need, going back I would probably buy something a little more expensive.

The Samson SR850B Semi-Open Studio Headphones are a B&H Exclusive version of the Samson SR850 model, with the main and perhaps only difference being the blue color added to the product's physical design. All technical specifications are the same.
