A good pair of headphones can make the experience of listening to music, watching a movie or playing a game on a smartphone far more compelling. Plus, more smartphones now support Hi-Res audio. Samson Technologies has been dedicated to improving the quality of audio products since they designed wireless microphone systems back in 1980. The company now has over 250 professional and consumer products distributed in 140 countries. Their product lineup includes amplifiers, mixers, wired microphones and signal processors and they have introduced some innovations like the Hartke bass amplifiers featuring broader dynamics or USB microphones. Now, the company is introducing their new line of Z Series Premium Headphones.
Four different models integrate the Samson Z Series, the flagship Z55 Professional Reference Headphones, Z45 Professional Studio Headphones, Z35 and Z25 Studio Headphones. All of these over-the-ear headphones feature lightweight components in a low-profile fit and a stylish look. They are designed to provide a fatigue-free experience thanks to their ample cushioning, even if they are used for a long time. These headphones offer wide, yet balanced and detailed sound fields, so professionals can use them for audio monitoring and their closed-back design provide sound isolation to reduce background noise and signal bleed. "With the creative process no longer confined to the studio, we wanted to design a line of headphones that allows our customers to experience supreme comfort, along with the confidence of reference-quality audio," said Sean Meagher, Samson's Director of Marketing.
