Samson SARTE2 overview

  • 1Description

The Samson RTE 2 Bluetooth Headphones use 40mm dynamic drivers surrounded by cushioned ear cups to deliver detailed non-fatiguing full-range audio without hype or coloration. The headphones pair with Bluetooth-compatible devices such as laptops, tablets, and smartphones that can stream audio from up to 30' away with support for streaming uncompressed file formats using aptX Technology, making them suitable for everything from business to casual listening, travel, and fitness applications. The inclusion of Near Field Communication (NFC) allows you to pair the headphones with your NFC compatible device simply by touching the headphones to the device.

A variety of controls on the right ear cup allow you to move forward and backward through your playlists, adjust the volume level, pause, and play your music. An on-board microphone and a receive/end button allows you to make calls with ease. The built-in rechargeable lithium ion battery can operate for over 10 hours at full listening level, as well as provide up to 200 hours in standby mode. They can be recharged from your computer via the included USB cable. A 1/8" (3.5mm) cable allows you to connect to a wired audio source as an alternative to Bluetooth.

    Samson SARTE2 reviews

    RTE 2 Bluetooth Headphones is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 50.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from works well I am very happy with my RTE 2 Bluetooth Headphones. This is the third brand I tried. The others were hard to keep the Bluetooth to stay connected. These have been very good. I purchased them to use while construction of a sunroom is being done next to my work studio to drown out the noise. I have only used them to listen to Audiobooks from Audible. I like the pause and volume buttons to make easy adjustments. I took off one star because they seem slightly heavy to wear, and the earcup is a bit small/tight. However, I am not used to wearing headphones, so this may be a normal fit/weight. And, the snug fit does help keep out the surrounding noises.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent headphones at a great price! I have been very impressed with this Bluetooth headset. I am not seeing any issues that have been mentioned in a few of the reviews. The setup and pairing was easy, they are comfortable and adjust easily ( not sure why some one reported that he/she could not get them to fit correctly on their ears ). They fold nicely and can be used with the included 3.5 mm cable to connect to a wire audio source such as those found on on-flight entertainment systems. I have not tried to use the built in microphone and probably will not need it since I already have a bluetooth earpiece with mic for cell phone hands free.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Impressed Glad I didn't pay full price for these! Nice concept, bad implementation. The sound is acceptable but doesn't blow your socks off. The design is where the real flaw is. The headphones swivel left to right, but do not swivel up and down. Which means they don't/won't conform to your head because they can't. You have to pull the extensions out far enough so the ear muffs sort of cover your ears. But it's not a snug fit because they won't swivel. Blue tooth connected with no problems, that's why I have them an extra star.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worthy Listening Wow, for a sound geek, I was impressed with this little powerful bluetooth headphone. Love its size and aesthetically appealing.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not quite right The quality of sound is reasonable for the price but I find the arm connecting the speakers to be a bit awkward. It's designed so wide that the speakers don't feel like they sit evenly on my ears. It feels like the top of the speakers are barely touching the tops of my ears, while the bottom sits against the ear fine. Also, if you have a larger head, the extensions dont go that far either making the unit even more uncomfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Headphones Well, I have had these for about 3 weeks now and I am very happy with them. They are by no means professional headphones but they have a nice crisp sound and an adequate bass. There has a been no problem hooking up to bluetooth. They are very well made, charge well and come with a nice carrying case. I have noticed what others have commented about, that the headband is made for really wide heads so that they don?t fit flush on my head. But, I found it doesn?t matter. They still fit snugly over my ears and block out any extraneous noises. I bought them on sale and I am very happy with them.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from decent on sale I wanted another pair of bluetooth cans when my old ones started to die on me, and I saw these at a great sale price. They paired effortlessly with my iphone 5s but will not talk to my macbook. The frequency response cuts off pretty high up the low mid range, so not for bass lovers. The transports on the can are nice and work well once you get the feel for them, and the charge holds for quite a while. They came with a nice case, usb charger cable, and an 1/8-1/8 trs in case you want to tether your head to a device. Not great at insulating the ear or rejecting ambient noise. I have a pair of samson noise cancellers that I love, that boast the same 40mm drivers. Not even close in overall quality. I wonder what went wrong?

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great headphones with a few quirks Having purchased a pair of wired noise cancelling Samson headphones I decided to give these a try. The fit and build quality is first rate, but the pairing process can be a bit finicky and the connection stability is spotty at times with some devices
