Wedn: Samson SR-850 Semi-Open Over-Ears for $25

One of the contenders for bang for the buck over-ear headphones is currently on sale, making it even more bang for the buck! Running until Wednesday 12/15/21 at 11:59pm eastern time (or earlier if sold out), as one of their daily deals, B&H Photo of New York is offering the new condition wired semi-open over-ear Samson SR-850 headphones for $25 with free US shipping. This is in the blue color scheme. It’s not all blue, do not panic – it has just a couple of stylish-blue body parts 🙂

Optionally you can purchase it together with other house-brand headphone accessories for a combined purchase discount ($5 to $10 off the total) by clicking on the “Build a Bundle” link over there…

At B&H, it averages 4.6 out of 5 based on 75 customer reviews. You can buy up to six pairs at the sale price. It comes with a 2-year manufacturer warranty and a 1/4″ adapter. No other accessories (hey, it’s $25!)

Note that the non-removable cable is a looooong one, 2.5 meters (just over 8 feet) per the specs page over there.

And as fate would have it, we have here a text and pictures unboxing of the older all-black version on this blog-type-thing.

I haven’t seen or touched or listened to the blue version, so I don’t know if there any other differences between them.
