The Samson SR850 and the Superlux HD668B are both professional style headphones that deliver high quality audio either in the studio or at home. With the two models being a similar style and being around the same price it can be difficult to know which ones to choose.
We have looked at the details of both the Samson SR850 and the Superlux HD668B to give you a better idea of which headphones will be right for you.
Both the Samson SR850 and the Superlux HD668B have soft padded ear cups that sit over your ears as opposed to on them, meaning you can wear them for longer in comfort without the headphones pressing against your ears. The Samson SR850 features velour wrapped ear cushions, providing comfort and breathability.
The Samson SR850 has an auto-adjust headband to give you the correct fit every time. The Superlux HD668B benefits from a contemporary design with a minimalistic padded headband that is more lightweight and comfortable.
Both the Samson SR850 and the Superlux HD668B have a frequency response rate of between 10 Hz and 30,000 Hz. The Samson SR850 is an open backed set of headphones so the audio quality for music files is very high, combining exterior sounds to create a realistic acoustic sound.
The Superlux HD668B is a semi-open backed set, so you have a more open sound than closed backed headphones but with less acoustics than the Samson SR850. Both models deliver deep and accurate bass.
The Superlux HD668B features an exposed wire headband that doesn’t have the bulk that some other headphones have, including the Samson SR850. The Superlux HD668B features two separate cables so you can easily switch to a more suitable cable for your device, depending whether you need a longer or shorter one.
Neither of the models require additional software but can both be paired with an amp to give a more powerful sound.
The Samson SR850 and the Superlux HD668B are compatible with a range of audio devices and are designed to work with high quality studio audio equipment. Both models feature 3.5 millimeter jacks as well as 6.3 millimeter jacks, giving you the choice of using your headphones with a larger range of devices, including phones and laptops.
The open back design of the Samson SR850 means it is not recommended for using in public transport or on the go, due to the disturbance to others from your audio. Both models will give you high quality audio from a range of sources, such as music, movies and games.
After looking at the Samson SR850 and the Superlux HD668B we think they are both good value headphones for use at home and in a studio but we think the better set is the Samson SR850. The Samson SR850 is a better set for wearing for long periods due to the comfortable ear cushions.
Both are lightweight models but the Samson SR850 is a sturdier looking set and gives a more acoustic audio experience.
