I picked up a set of these recently and have found that I really enjoy owning them. They borrow a lot from classic AKG headphones in terms of styling and construction but the sound is not the same. Doing some research online, you will find that the drivers are a different diameter than AKG's. They have a little more high end emphasis than the AKG K240's (also own). The high end is something that K240's lack, or rather don't exaggerate. While you can tell that Samson cuts some corners on the SR850 (how could they NOT?) the build quality is excellent and likely to impress most people considering the price point. The auto adjusting strap works just great. It allows the headphones to instantly adjust to anyone's head size. Thanks AKG! The earpads are very comfortable and they sit off of your ears enough that most peoples lobes aren't going to touch the vinyl or be bothered. The earpads will smell for a little while, but they are quite nice. I've had no problems leaving these on for hours and hours. The SR850's are very low impedance and can easily be driven by personal music players like iPods, Sansas, smartphones etc. Because of the low impedance though, noisy sources will let some hiss through the headphones more often than on higher impedance phones. Even my K240's at 55ohm are a little quieter with hiss. Its not a deal breaker.

They also seem to benefit from some play time, mine did anyway.

All in all, they do some really incredible things with music. Things that headphones at this price shouldn't have the right to do! They have great high end sizzle, beautiful open air sound stage, and deep natural bass. I'm very very impressed and would recommend a pair to anyone looking for a nice set of open back headphones.

I'll keep the review short. I consider myself an audiophile having bought a good amount of expensive gear, and these headphones can at the very least compete with headphones the likes of the ATH-M50 and Denon D1100. They are clear, balanced, yet bassy and sparkly all at once. The best value in headphones I know of.

Verified Purchase
PC Gamers..

As much as you'd like to brag about that nice, badass 5.1 surround sound you have, chances are you have neighbors, like me, and can't exactly blast your gaming as loud as you'd like..

So you sport a pair of gaming headphones, ones that have the microphone integrated, or simulated surround sound.. And are content with that like I was. Until I purchased these headphones.

Granted, these do not include a microphone.. But a good standalone microphone, like the Zalman ZM-Mic1 I have (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00029MTMQ/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_image), clips perfectly on the cord and has amazing reviews as well. .Giving me a combination of a good microphone and headset..

The sound card I have on my Desktop PC is an Asus ROG Xonar Phoebus. With this soundcard i've had three seperate headsets. A Plantronics Gamecom 777, Creative Fatal1ty Edition, and a Turtle Beach Ear Force X12. All three of those are absolute garbage compared to these open ear Samsons...

Everybody's ears are different, but I have to say that for the money these headphones blew me away. Listening to music after I broke these in was astonishing. I was hearing things I've never heard in my songs before.. And I'm not talking about crappy 128kb MP3s I got from Johnny Vanu down the road, I'm talking about FLAC audio, and 320kb/s lossless MP3s. It's a very versatile headset that I would highly recommencement be paired with a decent clip on microphone for a full, isolated gaming experience (For when you can't break out the true surround sound)

I've owned a pair of these Samson headphones for 2 years now, and I can honestly say they are amazing.

Sound quality is good, really good.

For music listening, I've found the bass response to be very deep and punchy, and the tops come out nice and clear. Quite a few headphones I've tried get one or the other right, but most don't have such a great balance of bass, mids and lows.

I also play electric guitar (on my own and in a band), and I was absolutely stunned at how great they are for guitar work! I use a Fender USA Stratocaster and Line6 POD, and I love the way they sound through these phones. They have a nice long cable as well.

The best part is, I've had these headphones for 2 years now, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with them, they've stood up surprisingly well to being carried around from work and band practice.

If you are looking for active noise cancellation, you'll have to look elsewhere though, but that said the noise bleed-in isn't bad at all, I've used these on stage without needing to deafen myself to hear them.

If they did break, or got lost or stolen, I'd definitely look for another pair. Crappy Beats or Skullcandy headphones don't even compare, and these are like half the price, I can definitely say that with beats or Skullcandy you're just paying for some fancy packaging and color that really you gotta be a sucker to fall for. These look pretty good as they are though, I like the styling.

These truly are 5-star headphones.
