Introduction

We at ASE Labs have reviewed some of the products from the Arctic Sound branch of Arctic Cooling in the past. The »E361-BM and »E352 series of earbuds both proved their worth in our testing. We came away impressed with Arctic Cooling's commitment in an area in which they were relatively new. Today, ASE Labs has the Arctic Cooling Arctic Sound P311 Bluetooth Headphones up for review to see if they are able to impart the same feeling of quality that the rest of the Arctic Sound line proudly displays.

Packaging

If you've read any of our other Arctic Cooling reviews, you would know that all of Arctic Cooling's products come in the same silver packaging with white accents. The box for the P311 headphones is no different.

Packaging Front


The front of the package is dominated by a large window that almost takes up the entire front of the box. The window wraps around to the left side of the box and proudly displays the headphones in all of their glory. The window itself is a hard, thick plastic; Though, it is only held in the box by the interior packaging.

Packaging Rear


The rear of the box contains all of the specifications for the P311 as well as some product photos and the same performance chart used on other products of the Arctic Sound range. Since Arctic Cooling is a European country, all of the specs are provided in 5 different languages.

Packaging Side


Finally, the side of the box shows off a diagram of how the headphones are supposed to be worn as well as a few product features and a rough compatibility shortlist. Of note, the product mentions that the headphones have a limited feature set when paired with an Apple iPhone and iPod Touch, specifically that "Back and forward buttons are not supported by Apple."
