This review is from: Samson SR850 Semi-Open-Back Studio Reference Headphones (Accessory) You always hear “these sound like $200 headphones for half the price” when reading headphone reviews. I don’t know about the money, but these things sound amazing. They are true monitor headphones. These are not warm or fun or colored in any way. They have great response and will reveal harsh recordings. They do sound better than any headphone I have ever heard. The clamping on the head is comfortable and the pads for comfortably over the ears. The velour pads feel initially SLIGHTLY warm, but do not heat up like vinyl pads. They start at the same comfy temp for extended times. The suspension system allows for extended use comfort, also. I am really disappointed in all my other headphones I have paid much more for. I bought these over the almost identical Superlux. These come with velour pads and are slightly less. The Superlux has detachable cords but that was not needed by me. Go with these for your monitors and be pleased. Spend the money you save on better equipment elsewhere. You won’t do better than these – different but not better. They are plastic-y but these aren’t for fashion.
