Arctic Sound E361 Earphones

Arctic Cooling have now turned their highly skilled hands to some other area's such as Audio, with their Arctic Sound range of Earphones. They have a wide range catering from the cheap and cheerful Arctic Sound E101's all the way up to great quality sounding E361's.

The E361 earphones are the type which sits in your ear canal and directs the sound right where you need it, they come with 3 sets of silicone caps (Small, Medium, and Large) to cater for all ear types and sizes.

The bass is just right when you find the sweet spot of positioning the earphone in your ear canal, with nice crisp high frequencies. You have to move and position them in your ear and get them to sit just right, this can be a little tricky (with my ears anyway). Once you got them sat in the correct position they sound great.

These are a very good pair of earphones if this is the type you like? (sits in your ear canal), Personally I prefer headphones, as I can never get earphones to sit correctly for long periods of time.
I wouldnt recommend using earphones or any type of headphones at high volumes for long periods, as this can damage your hearing.

The E361 Earphones comes with a neat little case to protect them in, gold plated connectors for high quality transfer, plus a long 2 year warranty.

We give these earphones a Big thumbs up !, A perfect companion for your MP3 Player, CD Player, Mobile Phone/PDA, etc.

Below is the official information from the manufacturer;

Highend earphone ARCTIC SOUND E361
This outstanding earphone delivers high sound quality in every aspect. Deep and powerful bass is one of key features of the E300 series. Each model is equipped with large driver coils (Ø10mm / 9mm) which reproduce dynamic and super deep bass without any distortions.

Quality of the chassis is also critical for authentic sound quality. The E361 aluminium chassis is precisely engineered and sealed for top class sound isolation. It guarantees full and accurate sound transmission into your ear canal without internal sound leakage.

Comfort fit, sound isolation and enhanced bass by soft silicone caps

To achieve top-notch listening experience, E361 is packaged with 3 sets of ultra-soft silicone caps in small, medium and large sizes. Wearing comfort can be personalized by choosing the most suitable cap size that fits best for your ears, so that they stay comfortable even after prolonged use.

The “seal” in the ears blocks ambient noise efficiently so that you hear only the sound from the earphones and nothing more. Even when you are on a plane, with the ARCTIC SOUND earphones, you will hear your favorite music instead of the ambient noise. Such high-level sound isolation also enhances bass response and improves the overall sound quality.

Protect your valuable earphones with the ARCTIC In-Ear Case

E361 earphone comes with an ARCTIC In-Ear Case. This compact carrying case is perfect for storing and protecting the earphones.

Multi-functional and multi-compatible earphones

The E361 also features a microphone version. This delicate microphone is ideal for phone calls and online communications such as Skype and MSN voice call.

A 3.5mm TRRS plug is equipped for transferring both microphone and earphone signals, which is ideal for mobile phones. For devices such as PCs, which support only the standard 3.5 stereo plug, it is necessary to use the adapter provided to use both the earphones as well as the microphone.
