Samson RH600 Headphones Reviews
You're probably wondering why it's nine out of ten and not not something less like the other reviewers above me. well that is pure on the headphone comfort issues, otherwise a 10 would be within it's grasp. That's really the only real problem with these 'phones.
I'm a music student going on to uni in September, so I needed to get some new headphones. I also had to kiss goodbye my AKG K77's as they've pretty much died on me after a 2 year working relationship on my previous music course (both earpads/muffs came off, and the left speaker's not working anymore). The RH600's have been my replacement ones for uni, and I've had time in the last 2 weeks or so to get a good feel of them.
Sound wise, they're great. A very big satisfying sound, a big deep bass with with crunch but but sealing highs like in other headphones I've had. It may depedn on taste of course, and that goes for any headphones. You need to ask the question "what is it that I need to hear the most and what sounds take priority?". With these they very bass and mid heavy, but I like that. You really hear the thump of a kick drum and deepness of a bass more. For this reason, I reckon it might be quite good drummers, who want to be able to hear their low end more so.
They're certainly and improvement over both my AKG K77 and K99's, which never did quite have a balanced enough sound. The initial and probably only problem is the lack of comfort. The cups have been made in such a way, that the speakers sit independently inside from the padding around the edges on their own little platform. I'm not so sure what reasoning behind this, whether it's give the speaker more room to vibrate or what (if anyone knows, feel free to let me know since I'm intrigued). By doing this though, the edges of the speaker can seriously dig into the side of your ears, and I fear may even leave some discomforting marks on some people. This can hurt during long sessions of listening, let alone monitoring or recording.
If there was just slightness bit of padding inside around the speakers themselves, then maybe this wouldn't be such a problem. But the speakers are practically bare with only a bit of fabric over separating them from your ear. Your almost near exposed to it. The outer padding around seem more like for blocking sound out (which it does very well, by the way) but add little comfort to you as the ring of the speaker pushes into your ears.
But, with all this in mind, the practical types could easily remedy this by pushing in some makeshift padding to ease the ring of the speaker off your tender ears. testing with some soft fabric, it really does make difference comfort wise and shows what could have been. It's really and honestly the only major error with them. Your still getting a brilliant budget sound, that gives great clarity, unlike other ones in it's class and price range, which I've noticed to be a bit too tinny and too much high end and not enough bass for my liking.
Still, if you wish to brave the comfort issues for the sake of a great sound that doesn't leave you broke and eating bake bean tins for months, then these could be the headphones for you.
Overall, great sound but FFS put some padding inside around those speakers!
The title says it all really. I use this on a regular basis and I can\'t fault them for sound quality, you can pick out things that normal speakers just don\'t hear. They also contain sound pretty well, not totally like they claim but better than most, when recording.
The biggest issue is they\'re not comfortable on the ear. The gap between the foam and the hard central part (where the sound comes from) tends to pull your ear into it and will really hurt if you\'re on a long recording session. Also I find they don\'t tend to be too secure on your head either, they\'ll creak away and slip around, particularly if like many rap artists, you only use one earphone and hold it to your head.
The sound is adequate for a 50 dollar set of headphones, but wear them for more than 5 minutes and they will start to kill your ears. they do not adjust like most headphones, so they will probably feel big on you. Then to make it worse, they start slipping down if you happen to be moving at all, and the design is such that they wedge your ears between the foam and the hard center where the sound comes out. sorry i dont know the technical terms but they hurt like hell, bottom line.
