Legato Arc R72E Auto-Retractable Bluetooth Wireless Neckband Headphones

Share on

The gist of it is that these headphones have great audio quality and especially full bass reproduction for the small size of the earbuds. With its intuitive controls, it's also very simple to use. The unit pairs easily to all my devices and it is now a permanent part of travel bag, allowing me to enjoy music wherever I go and they also have a complete headset with microphone built in for when I need to answer my cell phone.

Sound Quality

I have a number of wired and Bluetooth headphones from Bose, Apple, Mpow, Beats and Sony. These Legato headphones perform better than any earbuds I own with the exception of Beats urBeats, which are wired. The Legato sound is much better than the typical wired Apple earbuds and can compete with much bulkier over the ear headphones when it comes to bass rendition. Their only shortcoming is that the bass can get a little overwhelming when listening to classical music or audiobooks, so I would not recommend them for that type of usage.

Battery life

I've had the Legato Arc playing on battery for a full work day (about 8 hours) so far and it did not showing any signs of being at the end of its battery lifespan. The actual battery life will of course depend on how loud you play and also what kind of music you are listening too, but needless to say it has battery enough for just about any occasion.


The headphones have only one (Micro-USB) input to charge them and you have to use Bluetooth to connect with any audio source.


The Legato Arc headphones only have two buttons. One is a multifunction press button and one is a sliding (up/down) control button. They function well, but there is an overwhelming amount of functions assigned to them so unless you use the headset often you may want to have the manual with you as a reference. The most used funtions are easy to use and placed where you would expect to find them. The sliding control button works oposite of what I would prefer, but this is easy to get used to.


The headphones are made out of high quality flexible plastic and seem to be very durable. The wires for the earbuds retract into the ends of the headband when pulled gently and are very thin, but as I said seem durable as long as you aren't yanking on them - not a good unit for kids. Since the earbuds are retractable this should not be an issue as long as you remember to retract them before throwing the neckband/headdphones into your bag.
There are also two sets of additionaly sized earbud tips that will adapt the earbuds for your use.


GistGear awards the Latago Arc headphones 5 (out of 6).
The The Legato Arc neckband-earphones are a nobrainer to get if you primarily listen to pop music and like deep base. They perform in line with much more expensive headphones when it comes to bass rendition. With the inovative design that includes retractable earbuds and easy controls along with the ability to work closely integrated with your cell phone, they are certainly worth checking out.
