Samson today announces their new line of Z Series Premium Headphones. The line is composed of 4 different style of headphones: the Z55 , Z45 and the Z35 & Z25.

Sean Meager mentions that this line is the result of the creative process being no longer confined to the studio. The re is some truth to that as a smartphone or a tablet nowadays is powerful enough to start working on an idea that just happens to hit you when out and about. This is what the Z series is trying to assist with; giving people the comfort of wearing lightweight headphones while offering the quality of reference audio.

Listening to music for long hours can be fatiguing, so that is why the Z series line is crafted with lightweight components that will deliver fatigue are listening. The ear pads also offer ample cushioning for maximum comfort. The closed back design is necessary as this is something that will be used in public and have to to be sensible to others; not everyone wants to hear what you are listening to. On the flip side, you do not want outside noise interfering with your monitoring of a recording or edition of your music.

The Z55 comes with 45mm drivers and three detachable audio cables. The remaining Z Series models come with 40mm drivers, with the Z45 offering two detachable audio cables. The Z35 comes with a protective carry pouch as does the Z55 and Z45. The Z25 offers rotating ear cups outfitted with protein leather cushioning.

As with most headphone series, the more features you want, the more you have to pay and that is the case with e Z Series.

This is similar to what Audio-Technica offered, a while back, a line of headphones that complemented their already popular M50.

It will be interesting to see how these will fair compared to other line of headphones. Hopefully, we can get a few in the lab and make a more sound decision.
