Help choosing new cans - Page 2

post #16 of 18

The Samson SR850 is a great choice. Wonderful performance for the price, pretty comfortable, and cheap (at least in the US).

I have wanted to buy a pair of at cans but I really love the German cans ;D
I also read another link earlier of people not recommending anything audio related coming from the mouse company. If only I could link with this phone. I hope your purchase goes well, just Google the model and reviews of what you like. Nice to help out.
Cheers

 

I appreciate all the help ... I will definitely let the thread readers know how it goes ... lets just hope I make a good choice

How is the bass on the SR850's ... I haven't really found a good hands on review ...

Here is the frequency response graph for the Superlux 668 (same as Samson SR850) from headroom. It has a mid bass hump, but it doesn't bleed into the mids. Also, note that the extension isn't real deep. The graph shows you that around 40hz it starts falling off. I don't own these anymore, but I didn't remember the bass being quite as emphasized as the graph makes it out to be. It is definitely there and it is powerful, but not overpowering.
