About this deal

The mids are forward and present, very rich and with good clarity. The mids are not recessed or drowned out by the bass. The sound is very full and I find any headphone with solid mids and even a hint of bass will perform well in nearly all music as mids make up the bulk of what we listen to (from instruments to voice). Vocals are great, guitar sounds wonderful and piano was very powerful. I was very pleased in general with the mids as a lot of budget headphones are recessed in mids to make a bassy/treble headphone which tends to be more fun and popular. That's not the case here. Mids are full steam ahead.

Samson SR850 Review [2023] - Revealing And Affordable Cans

BUILD QUALITY :: aside from the pads the build quality is pretty plasticy and light... although it seems fairly sturdy and i cant see these breaking with anything short of excessive force(maybe some people like throwing their headphones at walls?) these have been said as having a high grip force and i can see why some people say that.. but its not really a concern of mine as if you want them looser you can just put them on something the width of your head(or wider) when your not using them.. super easy fix and imo not a huge problem as far as comfort goes ( far far far far far less of a problem than the pads ) ... i rated the design a 4 as im sure there is some room for improvement(ie. the 668 has detachable cable) but i have no issues with the build quality.. comfort i rated as 2.5 because of the pads... after a simple mod they are prolly 3.5/5 ( as i imagine velour pads, lighter grip would be an improvement..as is its not like i forget im wearing them) They are complete mods of superlux, from driver to chamber......samson did this to save money on headphone moulds as editing is cheaper than creatingAs these are tuned superlux with better driver but same sonic characters(samson hive better rhythm, transition, speed and tonal character while having same sonic charater and fr graph)

Samson SR850 headphones review - Higher Hz

Next difference is internal airflow management..... this gives the headphone little bit more air than normal(superlux have complete openish design giving rather edgy treble)These are 32 ohm headphones which means you will not need external amplification to play these at a loud volume, I listen to these through my uDac 2 with no problem.
