The internal construction of these is pretty bad -- the 'speaker' clips into several thin, weak, plastic clips. We had one break and the speaker is jostling around in there. They want us to ship it in for RMA repair, which means probably $10 out of pocket. This breakage occurred within only a few months, which mean even though we got them for a 'great' price, make $25 --> $35, and assume you'll get back another one that is built the same way........

I've had them for over a year and I still can't believe the sound these produce for that price. My second favorite pair of headphones (first being the ATH-M50X)

These are great for gaming/soundstage because of their open back design

Are these better than the Superlux 668B/691?

I own both the closed and open versions of these headphones - the open ones sound way better IMO. I also bought new ear pads, which upgraded the comfort level greatly

I can't speak for the SR850, but I own the SR950 (purchased via SD last year for $25 too) and they produce truly great sound.

Are those the SR850 and the SR950 respectively?

I don't know the ATH-M50X sounds really flat to me.

Yes of course they'll be as neutral as possible since they're monitoring headphones.

yes 850s are open back, 950s closed

I bought them in 2015 and 850s are still my go to for gaming / listening to music. I've had zero reason to consider an upgrade.

Thanks for posting this. I grabbed a pair. Does anyone happen to know if the ones from Adorama come with the velour or pleather earpads?

These are probably the best headphones you can get for under $40~$50.
