Why are you regretting? You should consider yourself lucky, you have the one of the best headphones that money can buy under $200. You now can buy the Superluxes and safely compare them to your DT770.

I'm not as lucky. I bought a Samson SR-850 as my first HP and was satisfied with it. Then I heard good things about the HD661 and bought that as well. The sounds were great. Now I'm not sure if I should go for an upgrade. I want an M50 or a DT770 but I'm hesitating because I don't know whether it would be $100 better in sound than my HD661.

As for which 662, we wouldn't know until someone took them apart and compare the drivers and wiring. Or if we could get a frequency response graph for the SR-950 and compare it to 662's from their website.

Lmfao, scumbag amazon.

 

 

For whatever it's worth, my Amazon SR850s that I got today came with these cloth/velour pads. Guess I should have held off ordering the Chinese K240 knockoff pads from eBay. Wonder if they'll be any better than stock.

 

I guess the lesson is that you generally have no idea what Amazon's going to send. I gave up trying to buy batteries from them, for instance, even given the big price difference, because I kept getting stock close to expiration (literally four years old last time).

Just wondering, in your opinion how long should you burn-in the SR850s for it to reach its 'full potential'?

I've had my SR850 for 2 years now.  They still work great but the headband has started to crack.  I plan on replacing the headband with leather or something similar.  Anybody try to get a replacement from Samson?

i did have the Shure SRH 440. I thought they were good at first but the more I compared them to my AKG k171, the more I liked k171's warmer sound signature.  I learned that these Samson SR850 is similar to AKG's sound signature so I returned the 440s to the store. I'm waiting for the SR850 from eBay right now. Go for SR850 instead.

I'm curious if the amp improves the sound of SR850 by much, given it's only 32ohms?
