Samson SR850 vs CAL!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Looking on Amazon I came across the Samson SR850 for $37. Upon researching them, on this forum, I came to find that these are great bang for the buck. I am currently in on the Massdrop group buy for the AKG K7XX and I am currently using the CALs! However, for $37, would this be a worthwhile and budget friendly upgrade from my CALs! until my K7XX arrive mid-February?

I'm not sure I would call the Samson SR850 an upgrade on the CAL. I do think it could be considerably different sounding from the CAL.

I am definitely interested in getting away from the closed design of the CAL and into some open headphones. Although I would hate to sacrifice any sound quality moving from the CAL to the SR850, but I am uncertain on how they compare.

I think the Samson uses the same Superlux drivers as the 668B.

Thanks for this. Good video. I will hold off and continue to use the CAL until I receive the K7XX.
