Samson SR-850 Semi-Open Studio Headphones for $25 w/FS

It’s back on sale again, the semi-open over-ear unapologetically non-fashion studio-looking Samson SR-850 are going for $25 with free shipping (no minimum purchase required) at Adorama.com. No coupon, no rebate, just add to cart and proceed! As usual, this is a limited time sale.

If you are curious about these, we have a useful text and pictures unboxing post. They have a long-ass cable (that’s a technical term), which can be handy if you need it and annoying if you don’t. It’s nice to be tethered to a desktop computer while working but still have a few feet to move around without being worried of yanking the headphones off your head or off the headphone jack 🙂 The cable is non-detachable. There’s no mic/remote. The earpads are not the most comfy, but you can replace them, or make you own … out of socks. That’s one way to scare away other people from using your headphones 🙂

Samson RTE 2 Bluetooth On-Ears for $30 w/free S&H

In a sale ending Sunday night, NewEgg actual is offering the new condition Samson RTE 2 Bluetooth closed on-ears for $30 with free shipping. No coupon/rebate needed. It supports apt-X and NFC and has a 3.5mm input as well.

It has a built-in rechargeable battery as do almost all bluetooth headphones these days. AA/AAA batteries seem to be more of the ANC and RF (non BT) wireless kind although more of those too are switching to built-in rechargeables.

Samson SR850 Semi-Open Over-Ears for $30 w/free S&H

Another budget over-ear headphone is on sale, it is the semi-open Samson SR850 going for $30 with free shipping at NewEgg by NewEgg actual and likely priced-match by Amazon actual (ships in 1-2 months though), where they average 4.6 out of 5 based on 299 customer reviews.

I actually have these and a review is in the works [everything is in the works here], so far I only posted a useful (?) text and pictures unboxing. For the price, it’s certainly a value play, as long as you are fine with a non-detachable looooong cable without mic/remote. They are open enough that in a quiet room you can use them as temporary computer speakers if you hang them near ear level or angle, and increase the volume level.

It looks like you can buy as many as you like there.

It is also price-matched at amazon.com with a limit of one per customer, and free shipping for Prime members or with a $35+ order.

CRACKPOT THEORY: next step for Samsung should be to buy the “Samson” brand to prevent confusion because of the similar names 🙂

I picked up their “cousin”, the SR850 during a previous sale, they come in a cardboard box with no accessories. These too are in my “review list”. Perhaps I should publish a review list, so I can be “shamed” into making progress 🙂 Regardless, here’s the picture:
