Excerpt: I got a chance to review the Arctic Sound P321’s a while back, letting you know they were a good and affordable set. As such, I made sure to let Arctic know that I'd love to get my hands on their upgraded Professional 5.1 Gamer headset.
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.
Pros: Nice long cord, Inline controls, Excellent sound overall, Good bass and treble, Good noise isolation, Great design and construction
Excerpt: In the world of headsets and microphones, you may not think of a company that mainly makes cooling systems for computers. Surprise Arctic Cooling actually makes some impressive headsets and even keyboards.
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.
Pros: Sound Quality, Price, Surround Sound, Slightly cheap feeling construction
Excerpt: I’m pretty particular when picking out my PC gaming gear. I have been through a pretty good amount of hardware over the years and keep up my life cycle of gaming gear. Arctic sent us out some gear to check out and review a few weeks ago.
Arctic Sound P531 5.1 Channel Gaming USB Headset Review
18 January 2011
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...
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).
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.
Conclusion: The Arctic Sound P531 USB Gaming Headset comes with a built-in control unit with a blue LED. It's located halfway along the USB cable/extention cord. The unit allows you to control the surround sounds which includes the front, rear, center and subwoofer.
