I recently bought myself and my gf a 2 for one special on these headphones after reading and rereading many reviews. I had the choice one set of Siberia V2's or 2 of these. I decided to go for the Samson 850SR's due to everyones reviews.
As for comfort I love them, they are so light.
As for mids and highs, im 25 so the highs don't bother me due to hearing loss with age :D, cant hear anything over 19khz. So the music I usually listen to sounds amazing. Tool/Metallica/Within Temptation/Violin Solos. Bass sounds good everything else sounds awesome.
For Gaming I havnt played much since I got them yesterday, but battlefield sounds nice, going to test them on CS & Q3 to see how clearly I can hear the footsteps.
The problem I do have with them is that when I listen to music like dubstep ( I rarely listen to it but my gf loves it ), I can clearly hear the bass is ?weak?/?not deep enough?. I don't really know much about sound but I can hear there is something missing. Proven by comparing them over multiple bass drop songs vs my friends Original Beats by dre ( yes I understand these are a diffirent level of headphones and 10 times the price ) AND my other friends over ear Pioneer HDj-500. There is just something CLEARLY missing in the lower range. I then tested the lower 20hz-200hz with my and both their sets, again, it just doesn't make nearly as much sound and deep boom.
I am going be leaving my headset at work with some pink noise playing over the entire weekend and hope this makes a diffirence.
FYI, this is all playing out of the same port in either my PC or the works PC. So the platform im testing the headphones are all the same, Im happy with the bass on the other headphones, using the same port and the same EQ settings ( default Youtube ).
Any advice ? / Questions ?
