Arctic Sound P321 Headphones

P321Most of my time on the PC nowadays is spent NOT gaming!  Sad I know, I spend more time doing homework, socializing, voice chat/Google voice phone calls, listening to music and watching HULU reruns of shows I forgot to TiVo.  So I find myself needing something like the P321 to fill all those roles, not something like the $300+ Psyko 5.1 gaming headphones which are awesome for gaming, but not for all the rest.

Main Features                      

The 50mm diameter driver in the headset can accurately reproduce ultra-low frequency sounds and deliver superb audio quality. Since the ARCTIC SOUND P321 is able to play powerful bass and crisp highs, it is a premium audio headset for movies, multi-player gaming, and audio listening. The retractable and adjustable microphone on the headset is also convenient for users to start voice communication at ease.

The ARCTIC SOUND P321 features a comfortable and closed circumaural headset design to ensure optimum noise isolation. The leather-cushioned ear cups not only give the headset a stylish appearance but also provide all-day comfort and additional durability. The adjustable headband with padding delivers versatility and maximum comfort as well.

The ARCTIC SOUND P321 uses digital USB connection to provide superior clarity and distortion-free audio from any computer or laptop. It also contains an advanced in-line remote for track selection, volume, mute, and bass boost control. The bass boost control allows users to intensify the bass and enhance their gaming and listening experience relatively. The plug-and-play USB connector along with the one-touch remote control panel in the ARCTIC SOUND P321 delivers convenience and simplicity.

Packaging and contents

The packaging for the Arctic Sound P321’s is pretty basic.  The box is a brushed aluminum look without any fancy graphics.  What they do display is the quantity of features you can expect from the P321’s.

Inside you will find the P321’s snugly fit in a plastic form fit container with the cords all neatly tied in place.  No hard to open zip ties, just compression fit formed plastic and regular twist ties.

You will not find any instruction manuals.  Which makes perfect sense, as we should all know where the USB plug goes and the in-line remote uses common easy to understand symbols.
