Customer Reviews

No volume control They seem pretty excellent thus far; however, my main purpose for posting this is to point out that despite being advertised as such on this page, there is no volume control feature. Not a huge deal but as that was a selling point for me, I'm disappointed to find that they don't have that feature.Update 2/2/16: I've discovered that my phone, on which I was primarily using these, don't actually have the greatest sound themselves (lI have an LG G2 and a Note II I have laying around sounds considerably better, in terms of dynamics at least) so I probably need some better equipment before coming to any conclusions on these. However, there is one thing about these that stand out, and one of the reasons I got them... THE BASS. It's not boomy or overwhelming but lordy, does it seem to dig down deep. My initial impression of the phones was that they may be a bit too balanced and neutral for my tastes--I felt like I kept having to turn them up (that's at least in part due to my phones, I've discovered). But when I did turn them up, I would oftentimes get some discomfort in my ears like I was listening to something really loud. What I'm thinking it is is just substantial amounts of deep, perhaps even infrasonic, bass. The seal on the ear cups gets so tight that I think these things are literally pressurizing my ears. 4Great sound. But comfortable they are not. I have had these headphones for about a month now.The sound is nice. Really nice. Clean, crisp. I have them plugged into my computer's headphones/speakers jack, and the computer manages to pump enough power through, no problem. Not that I need it, I don't listen to it loud, just enough to enjoy the full range of frequencies.But that's where the positive stuff ends. For me, that is.The headband is tight. It would be OK, methinks, had the inner diameter of the cushions been larger. As it is, my right ear gets pinched no matter how I try positioning the headphones. It's either pinches at the top part, or the lobe, I can shift the entire can back to try to squeeze the ear inside the cushion, but then the cushion presses on the front of the ear and essentially blocks the ear canal.Even if I fold my ear, stuff it inside, and endure uneven volume between left and right cans, I can only comfortably wear these headphones for a few minutes. After that the skin on my skull under the cushions, depressed and deprived of blood, starts hurting, so I have to take the cans off to let the blood back in.I keep these headphones with a few books between the cans, hoping that over time the headband relaxes. Perhaps it will, but it hasn't yet.Oh, and if you're wondering, my right ear is not freakishly larger than normal or than my left. My ears are quite symmetrical, and quite regular... 3Very good Sealed cups do produce a little resonance. But block out external sound more than on-ear light weight headphones.Very nice how they set the impedance to work optimally with tablets and such. I get good volume with my tablet.I use them for processing recordings for reuse. Change pitch, tempo, etc and enhance a bit. Good flat, mostly uncolored response. Very useful. Detail in sound is pretty good.Very comfortable, even with glasses on. And I have a fairly big head. No negatives really. 4Best headphones on the market for the price Best headphones for the price, hands down. I work in radio and music production so sound quality is important to me. I don't use these in the studios at work but with my computer / stereo set up at home. They don't have that lame bass boost that crappy (yet trendy) brands like Beatz have, which means they're great for doing audio editing at home and also great for gaming and listening to music as well. They're very soft on the ears, though the metal bars on top are rather stiff and if you have a large head you may need to break them in a bit (so they get used to being open a bit wider). And for style, they're solid black so none of those dumb neon colors you'll see on headphones for noobs. 5It's All In The Product Title, and It's All Good! Read the title for the product right here on Amazon.com. "Professional Studio Reference" headphones. I've had mine for almost a month now and that's exactly what they are. Very balanced sound. Samson needs to get the word out to the pro/semi-pro/home recording industry. These are not just tracking headphones (to allow musicians to hear themselves during recording), if you have mixing experience, you can MIX with these headphones, right up to final mix.Mastering, the final process of preparing your recording for publication (polish, sheen, loudness), may or may not be possible on these phones. I have yet to find out. But just the fact that you can really mix - because the frequency response is so balanced and so flat - on a pair of headphones under $70 is just amazing. I use old, reliable AKG 240s for tracking when recording, but I hook up the Samson 950s directly to my iPad for mixing and they sound awesome. I'm sure they'd sound even better in my headphone amp in the studio, but that's not what I got 'em for. This is for professional couch mixing, a new thing now that iOS is a viable recording platform, and these are the best 'phones I could recommend to any other mobile recording enthusiast/professional for mobile mixing at any price. Sure, there are plenty of $200+ headphones that might sound as good, but check the impedance - anything over 50 and your iDevice will have trouble driving it. At 32 Ohms, these headphones are specced perfectly for mobile mixing.A killer deal. They are a bit tight, but that's easily fixed, just stretch 'em out as needed, let them spend the night over a chair or the back of your couch if you need to. I've got a big head, and haven't needed to stretch them. And I wear them for hours on end. You'll also want to use some sort of ties to rope off the excess length if you plan on walking anywhere with them on - otherwise you could easily trip on the cord, or draw unwanted attention from nearby cats. I'd rather have the excess chord and not need it than not have it and find myself needing it. Both the tension of the fit and length of the chord can be easily remedied for everyday use.There should be more hype about these headphones. In fact, I may go out and try to create some. This review is a start, and I highly recommend the Samson SR950s to anyone in the recording industry - home or studio - or anyone who needs to hear a flat frequency response in their headphones. These babies punch well above their weight and are just a tremendous value. I did a LOT of research before selecting these, and I couldn't be happier with my choice :) 5ARE AMAZING! I am a university student, and one of my minors is in edition. These headphones look great to me because audio can be heard accurately at the time of editing.I think it has a very professional and very comfortable design. Since my experience with other headphones was that my ears got tired and the headphones ended up bothering me. Another aspect that I loved, is that they automatically fit your head, so I don t have to spend time adjusting the headphones until I feel comfortable.It is definitely a product I would recommend, and would buy again. Since both shipping and packaging were excellent and the product is even more amazing. That's why I give it 5 stars and I recommend it to anyone looking for quality headphones.NOTE: This is an honest opinion, nobody has paid me or sent me anything to review this product. 5All Around Great Headphones I'll just be straight to the point. These headphones have exceeded my expectations. At the time, I was looking for over-the-ear headphones that would produce quality sound without breaking the bank, and these headphones did just that. I'm not a music producer or anything like that, just love listening to music. These headphones brought almost a different realm to the music I had been listening to. All the songs I have heard before-hand, sounded brand new to me. If you're looking for bass driven headphones, I suggest you look elsewhere, because these headphones give you a very balanced/equal quality sound. Don't get me wrong, the bass is fantastic. These headphones just don't overwhelm you with bass. They provide a very balanced sound. Everything the producer wants you to hear, you hear it. Very comfortable as I am able to wear them for hours on end. I use these headphones for casual home listening as well as gaming. They may seem a bit large while you wear them but that is forgiven when you hear the sound quality. All in all, if you want to pay for a name brand, go for it. But you're going to get the same quality (if not better in my opinion) with these headphones. A Very under-rated product. Buy these, before you spend too much. 5They are amazing. I am comparing these to Platronics Gamecom 780s ... They are amazing. I am comparing these to Platronics Gamecom 780s (There are two different ones, make sure you are looking at the 780s if you are comparing. I believe the 788s are the newer ones). Anyways, I bought these headphones because my Platronics broke (the plastic above the right headphone snapped).I mainly use this for my main game called counter-strike: GO for the PC. It is pretty amazing comparing to my last headset. I think its amazing. At first I wasn't sure about it, but now I don't regret my buy at all. CS:GO is all about knowing where the enemies are around you, and this headphone does an AMAZING job pointing out the enemies with the sound positioning.Once again, going back to playing cs:go, these headphones got me hearing things I didn't with the Platronics. I can't believe the sounds I was able to hear. The difference is I hear everything CLEAR. CRYSTAL CLEAR. I may have heard them in the other headphones, but if its not clear, its possible to easily mix it up with other sounds, or not even hear it I guess? When I play CS:GO and listen to the silencer on the m4, god d*mn, the feels are amazing. You hear the bass of the silencer right next to you. With the way the headphones are position you can easily tell where the gun fire came from.I am a big fan of rap music. I read reviews saying these headphones don't have any bass. But comparing my platronics and even other headphones, the bass in these sound amazing. I'm sure headphones could get more bass, but Im a person who was always into JL Audio subs, and speakers, I like my clear music but still bumpin. These headphones are perfect for what I use them for. If I want full on bass, I just use my actual nice PC speakers.Anyways, the main reason I bought this, is because I kept reading how headphones should be used to hear sounds in games than using a "headset". I never made the change, because I need to use a microphone. I thought it would pick up more things than just my voice, but I was wrong, and I'm glad I made the switch to headphones and a microphone for my online gaming.Bottom line:These headphones are amazing. You don't get the sound quality like these in "gaming headsets" at this price. These sound amazing, and I will never get a headset again in my life. If you play CS:GO or any games in general, you will love these headphones because they do a great job of doing directional sound. 5Excellent These headphones are exactly what you would expect if you are familiar with Samson products: excellent sound and quality - surprisingly low price. (No, I do not work for or represent Samson - I have just never been disappointed with any of their products.) The first thing I needed to do after plugging these headphones in was to change all my EQ settings to flat. These headphones really do give a flat frequency response - see the attached photo. The sound is clear, clean, and true. Please note, they are large: 50 mm drivers are 50 mm. (The drivers cannot be folded or smashed to make them smaller.) But the auto-adjusting fit and large overstrap, along with the cloth padding make them quite comfortable. I was able to wear them 4-5 hours at a time from day one. I have to push these pretty hard to get distortion or breaking up - but by then, they are way too loud for my ears. I like the thickness, strength, and flexibility of the cable, and I also like the fact that the 1/4" adapter actually screws onto the 1/8" plug. That's a nice, tight connection. On a final note, just before throwing out the box, I realised that the molded holder inside the box would make an excellent, safe holder on my desk. I spray painted it black and that did it. I believe with a little glue and creativity it would also work vertically. I am quite pleased with these headphones. 5The sound for the price is amazing. Pros The sound for the price is amazing.Pros:Nice wide frequency response that you would expect to pay more for. If you need awesome sound clarity on a budget these are the ones to buy! Nice tight deep bass response and crisp highs.Cons:My son noted that these headphones were uncomfortable somewhat after a few minutes, I noted the above average sound leakage because of the cheap ear cup padding. The construction quality leaves a little bit more to be desired but they are a reliable pair of headphones. The plastic construction can vibrate sometimes depending on how high the music levels are and the type of music you are listening to.Conclusion:An awesome value when balancing a budget with sound and quality. I find these headphones very helpful when making music, it helps me to detect undesirable sound artifacts and loudness distortions ( to clarify, the loudness distortions is the sound that is originating from inside some of my media files due to high recorded gain adjustments, and not originating from these headphones). So even at a very low volume level I find sounds that would normally be missed with my other headphones which is a good thing so as to fight the loudness wars when I am producing music. I would buy these again at some point. Look, some people will eventually throw out their $400+ Beats by..... you know who, for something else due to wear and tear which I find a bit worse above everything else I spoke of due to the massive waste of money for those beats. 4
