Surprise Arctic Cooling actually makes some impressive headsets and even keyboards. Not pricey at all Arctic’s P531 headset is an affordable 5.1 headset solution that performs surprisingly well.

Review of ARCTIC P531 5.1 Headset

Testfreaks blog
13 February 2012
  • Summary: Headphones are great for gaming and watching movies when you need to be quiet. I’ve got small children and I like to watch movies and  play games at night time, late at night, and my kids need to sleep. What I have for review today very much helps me accomplish that and more of course. I’ve got the ARCTIC P531 5.1 Headset for gamers for review today, these feature a USB connection and not actual audio connections which I think makes life easier and.
  • Pros: Nice long cord, Inline controls, Excellent sound overall, Good bass and treble, Good noise isolation, Great design and construction
  • Cons: Heavier than most other headsets

  • Conclusion: Final Thoughts Our experience with the Arctic Sound P531 headset has been a very good one on the whole, which is made even more sweet by the extremely low asking price of around £40. At this price it should be affordable for almost everyone that takes gaming semi-seriously. And, for those who aren’t into gaming, the P531 offers good performance with music playback and movie playback and can be used in applications like Skype thanks to the inbuilt microphone.
  • Pros: Sound Quality, Price, Surround Sound, Slightly cheap feeling construction

Arctic Sound P531 5.1 Channel Gaming USB Headset Review

  • Summary: Conclusion After using the headset for a while I found it to be comfortable to use for short periods of time. The sound was great and I enjoyed the surround experience. The headset not only dampens all the noise around you, but also dampens the sound coming out of the headphones for those around you. You can still have the music loud, while still being quiet for those around you. The P531 is a great gaming headset and has MSRP of $66.34.

  • Excerpt: In my younger days, cough cough.. !NURSE!!, cough cough, I would game like there was no tomorrow.  There was no Microsoft Office, there was no Quickbooks, Open Office, or LANDesk.  There was Unreal Tournament, NFS, Quake, Battlefield, C.O.D. (not this website).  My desk was a war zone, my office was a LAN party, and my friends were my comrades fighting battles on my self hosted gaming server.

  • Summary: I tested the P531 heeadset for a solid week before writing up this review. I wanted to give the headset as much time as possible to test it out in a variety of circumstances and swap back and forth with my couple of other headsets. The software was quick and easy to install. Once installed, every time I plugged the USB cable into the machine, it popped up in the system tray.

  • Summary: After spending a week using the Arctic Sound P531 USB headset, I have gone back and forth on my feelings about them. After a few hours at a time of almost non-stop wearing them, my head noticed. They weren't uncomfortable, but I can say that I felt "tired", kind of like if you had a long day outside doing something fun. I guess with time, that would go away, and I would be more than willing to give it that time.
  • Pros: » Good sound reproduction., » Very adjustable, should be able to fit any head., » Reasonably comfortable, considering the number of speakers in each earcup., » Brings gaming to life!!, » Cord length is a good size if your system is under your desk., » Comfortable for long gaming sessions., » MSRP is very competitive with other 5.1 headsets.
  • Cons: » Microphone is hard to adjust in the right position., » Microphone isn't the highest quality unit I've used., » Draws lots of power from the USB connector., » Heavier than a standard stereo headset., » Cord may be too long if used with a laptop or desktop that is on top of your desk., » Unable to find any place to buy this headset online
