Some saddles such and some don't. I bought a Brooks Team pro saddle last year without ever having used one before. I read some reviews of them. They were all perfect. People just love Brooks Saddles. They have been making the same product for more than a century without every having changed it. They must be doing something right. The saddles are only made for bikes which do not involve shifting your weight back behind the saddle, like what we do mountain biking when going down steep hills. The Brooks saddle I got was absolutely perfect for riding anywhere but single track. I can sit on that thing for hours without any discomfort. I've been trying to get a perfect fit on my mountain bike. I got a professional to size me up properly. Replaced the stem and now trying a new saddle for the bike. The Brooks Cambium C15. I don't like it at all. Painful. Unlike traditional Brooks saddles, this one is narrow and is made of some type of rubber instead of leather. But it does not fit my bum. I'll try a different one, but Brooks may not be the one for my mountain bike.

It does not matter how much money you spend on a saddle. In my experience it has no correlation to comfort. In 2007 I bought a brand new high end mountain bike. It came with a WTB saddle with a carbon fibre base and titanium rails. It's a $200 saddle. I could not sit on it for more than 30 minutes. I swapped it out for a $70 saddle that was one of the most comfortable saddles I've ever used. My girlfriend stole that one. The Brooks Cambium one is another $200 saddle and it's junk for my butt. So when you are out shopping, good luck!
