So at the moment AC is already carrying six products in the Arctic Sound line. Now to make some sense out of that product line, here's where we'll make it easy for you:
We received their most expensive version, the new Arctic Sound E352 Earbuds. When you first look at these buds you'll think 'huh?'. Indeed, the outside shell of these buds are made out of wood.
The idea behind it is to offer a more warm sound due to the implementation of that wooden chassis. It's a bit trivial as wood is obviously often used and a key element in speakers, but the idea there is that the wood resonates and reflects a little adding that extra warmth to the sound. With buds this small that's hardly even possible. But let's not judge a book by it's cover, we'll test the buds on the next page.
Some features as provided by Arctic Cooling:
- Warm sound definition provided by exquisite wooden chassis
- 3 sets of silicone caps (S, M, L) minimize ambient noise and enrich bass response
- Ultra-soft material fits gently in your ears providing hours of wearing comfort
- Gold-plated stereo plug for uncompromised signal transmission
These earphones definitely deliver good sound quality in most aspects. Deep and powerful bass is one of the key features of the E300 series. Each model is equipped with large driver coils (Ø10mm / 9mm) which should reproduce dynamic and super deep bass without any distortions.
The E352 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 best fits your ears.
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. Make no mistake, this is not noise cancellation, but isolation.
But let's have a closer look.
We test the Arctic Cooling Arctic Sound E352 Earbuds. The E352 in-ear buds tested today are advertised to offer sound quality, noise isolation and bass advantages over other offerings from the competition. As such they promise a higher quality than what is provided by your typical pair of earbuds. Let's have a look at the product and lend it an ear or two.
