post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
found this thread and have been wondering what is the current best price/performance headphones which would mainly be used for watching movies and gaming ( my music consist of techno/trance heavy with some rock in between)

Superlux 668B

Samson SR850

I have heard a lot of good things about the samson SR850's from my friends and co-workers are they correct?


which one out of these is the best one for me? is the samson SR850 the best bang for my buck? or is there a better one?

any information is appreciated.

Rosewill RHTS-8206 and Plantronics GameCom 780 are hard to beat for the price

The Superlux or Samson SR850 are both great around $50, if you step up to $80 there's the Sony MDR7506 or Takstar Pro 80.

If you only want to spend $50 I'd get the SR850

so is the superflux better or is the samson better? they both cost the same what is the difference between them? and which one is better for movies/gaming? I am still back to square one.

thank you so much also for info.

Samson SR850 is basically the exact same as the Superlux 668, uses the same or near the same drivers. In fact I think the SR850 was initially a copy of the 668, and now both have had some minor revisions. Pick one based on the style/construction.
