    Samson SARTEX Reviews

    RTE X Active Noise-Cancelling Headphones is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 124.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from High-Quality Sound, Low-Quality Cord The good -- Sound quality is very good, quite clear. They also work just fine as regular headphones w/o noise cancelling if you don't put a battery in; that wasn't clear to me from the description. The bad -- Samson must've found the cheapest cord available to throw in the box b/c it's super thin, short, and very low quality (like a cheap earbud cord). Fortunately, the cord just has standard 3.5mm connectors on both ends, so I replaced it with a longer, better quality cord for a few extra bucks. At their regular price, you shouldn't have to do that right out of the box, but I got these on a B&H special, so the cord issue stung a bit less; still, I would've preferred no case at all and a higher-quality cord.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding! I use these headphones with a portable cd player and to listen to cds and dvds on my laptop. When I saw the ad saying they were studio quality sound, I was skeptical, but I decided to give them a try. I had never heard of the Samson brand, and I own headphones from a number of well known brands. The sound quality is outstanding for the classical music I'm so fond of. The noise reduction worked better than I expected. These headphones sound as good as or better than 'phones costing three times as much. If I had known these were this good, I would have bought more of them at the sale price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replace the cheap audio jack cable. The little audio jack that came with it is cheap and flimsy. But i got it mainly to use for noise cancellation. Works great, noise cancelling however doesn't cut out sudden loud noises or in a room filled with white noise generators. Can't use noice cancellation with my computer, it instead pick up the hum from the electricity, in pasive mode it's fine. Maybe it's the cheap audio jack. I would probably get a better audio jack. Cups are a little small and pinch my ears but I don't use it for long. Can hurt if on a long flight. Wish it had inline volume control though. Overall quite happy with it, especially I snagged it on sale.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied customer Wore them for 3 hours on a flight from New York to San Francisco and could barely hear the engines. Nice sound and fairly comfortable. A great value. I made the right choice!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really a nice product for flying Just got these one day before my flight at a great price on B&H's 24hr special. However they are well worth the full price. I would not pay more for the high-priced ones with the hyped name. They kill the ambient noise on a jetliner very well and provide a nice high quality sound when I was watching movies on the rented device and also when listening to music on my MP3 player. The separate supplied cord is nice and long and if it gets damaged you can easily and cheaply buy another. The guy sitting next to me had his Bose phones in for repair where the cord comes out... Couldn't be happier. Thank you B&H!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and sound great These are a very enjoyable air of headphones. I bought them on sale here but I'd be just as happy at full price. The sit comfortably, sound good and can still be used even if the battery is dead. They fold nice and flat in the included case. I put in a rechargeable AAA when I got it and have forgotten to turn them off overnight a few times before I needed a change. I highly recommend these if you're unwilling to pay 3 times as much for a Bose and can accept that while they sound great, there are better out there but none that I've tried at this price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from YES I WOULD BUY THIS PRODUCT AGAIN. I BOUGHT THIS HEADSET FOR MY WIFE TO USE ON A LONG PLANE FLIGHT AT THE END OF THIS MONTH. WHEN I RECEIVED THE HEADSET I USED IT FOR ABOUT AN HOUR TO CHECK OUT THE COMFORT, NOISE CANCELLATION AND SOUND AS WELL AS THE OVERALL BUILT. IT IS BUILT WELL TO HOLD UP AND IT COMES WITH A NICE CASE THAT SHOULD KEEP IT SAFE WHEN TRAVELLING. OVERALL I AM SATISFIED WITH THIS HEADSET, ESPECIALLY FOR THE SALE PRICE OF $29.99. I ALSO HAVE A BOSE (QuietComfort2) HEADSET THAT COST ALOT MORE TO COMPARE AND THE OVERALL COMFORT, NOISE SUPPRESSION & SOUND OF THE BOSE IS SLIGHTLY BETTER.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I should have bought a couple! I have used Samson products before and they are top quality. These went on sale and I snatched them up for a great price and they are fantastic. I especially like the noise-cancelling aspect. The quality feels good and I like that the headphone cable detaches as a separate piece, so if it gets yanked, it will detach instead of breaking the headphones. My room has an annoying loud AC window unit that makes listening to my phone or tablet hard. These really reduce the noise from the loud AC unit and have a nice quality sound to them. The sound reproduction is very clean. Now, I just have to make sure my wife doesn't steal them from me!
