Superlux HD668B vs Samson SR850

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My JVC RX700's broke and I'm looking for a replacement. After reading through Simca's thread (and adding another rep thumb.gif) I decided on either of these two headphones. If you have any experience or knowledge on how they compare then please enlighten me. Both are around the same price, I'm just looking for a pro's and con's between them based on comfort/durability/sound quality/sound stage etc. I only have a cheapo X-fi Xtreme gamer sound card so keep that in mind.

These will be mainly used for gaming but also some general use.

Samson sr850 for some bass with your music. Better sound stage than your rx700s. Less bass. Better sound overall. The rh600s if you just want total gaming head phones. Very low bass. Good sound stage. Good for certain genres of music, but sr850s are more enjoyable overall. Consider the rh600s the poor mans ad700s. The sr850s the poor mans pro550s.
