I was thinking of getting the Superlux HD668B since they are basically the same but I am hoping the HD668 head band is more comfortable.

To me they are comfy, but the sibilance is a too much. I'd go for the JBL Synchros S500's. Very detailed headphones. There are a couple on ebay for 50, which is a steal.

They are about $120 AUD here in Australia which is 2x the price of the SR850s or Superlux HD668. I have purchased some velour ear pads which will make things a little more comfy but will probably have to find new headphones with a different head band.

 

I guess I want something like the Superlux HD668 since I have been using my brother's 'gaming' headset a lot due to the comfy head band -

I just got me a pair of SR850 headphones, used on canuckaudiomart, and you know what, I like them. I love my Grados, but for casual listening here and there, these sound great. Comparable to the original Grado SR80.

Sorry to dig up this topic, but today I had a revelation that i want to share. Just got a pair of JVC Ha-Rx900, and tried out swapping their pleather pads with the velours on the 850. Both sound signatures changed substantially, but i'm here to talk about the Samsons.

 

JUST WOW! first of all the rx900 pads have thinner foam, therefore I believe that makes a very good seal. The amount of bass that was gained is incredible. I'm pretty new here and in the headphone world, so i can't really describe it properly, but it's a lot, and it's good. Ohh boy, it's so good. A totally new headphone! :)

Thanks for the review. I've bought it in the past month, and enjoying it every single day.

Just joined here, looking for a good headphone (and cheap!) to use on the pre-amplifier I just inherited (yamaha) which is awesome, I'm using with some ****tie phone I found here because my PC headset is a USB one and it's freaking awesome...

 

You think this samson is good to use on the pre-amplifier? What about the SR 950, you have any idea? Cuz its easier to find in my country that this 850.

 

I was about to buy the AKG K44 or the Sennheiser 201 or 202...

 

Just want a cheap phone that works fine on this pre-amplifier and thats it...

They are not bad headphones at all. Great detail and sound stage. Replace pads with velour and they get insanely comfortable. Their problem is the sharp, sibilant and overall thin sound signature. Have them for 3 years now.
