I’ve personally known about this for a little while while now but I wasn’t supposed to tell anyone… but today Arctic Cooling, yes I said Cooling, has announced a new line of sound related products. As of today they’re releasing several different sets of ear buds ranging from about $25 up to $70. They’re being categorized in three ways with numbers, 1, 2 & 3. The 1s being the lower end of the scale and up to the 3s being the higher end or full spectrum sound ear buds. In the included release below they also, mention the upcoming headphones and even speakers. Of course they already sent me a pair, so expect that review next week from me, but for now I’ve included a pictures I took of the pair I received which is the high end E361-WM. The pair I got for review can also be used with your computer or cell phone, yes there’s an in-line microphone, and they even come with a really nice case to protect them during transport.

Multiple categories are available in each class, offering diversified music and audio experience according to your personal preferences
Microphone and color options are also available for selected ARCTIC SOUND models. There will be a simple code after the numbering system as indication.
ARCTIC SOUND Earphones – E300 / E200 / E100 series
6 earphone models are launched which fulfill different acoustic requirements and preferences.
(1) High-End Earphones E300 series – ARCTIC SOUND E361 / E352 / E351
These outstanding earphones deliver high sound quality in every aspect. Deep and powerful bass is one of key features of the E300 series. Each model is equipped with large driver coils (Ø10mm / 9mm) which reproduce dynamic and super deep bass without any distortions.
Quality of the chassis is also critical for authentic sound quality. The E361 and E351 aluminum chassis is precisely engineered and sealed for top class sound isolation. It guarantees full and accurate sound transmission into your ear canal without internal sound leakage. The wooden chassis of the E352 reveals a warm sound definition which is ideal for those who prefer natural audio performance.
(2) Mid-Range Earphones E200 series – ARCTIC SOUND E231 / E221
If you are not a bass enthusiast, the E200 series would be an option. Pleasant bass, fine highs and clear vocals are reproduced by the driver coils. Same as the E300 series, the E231 also features a precisely milled aluminium chassis for delivering enriched sound definition.
Comfort fit, sound isolation and enhanced bass by soft silicone caps
To achieve top-notch listening experience, both E300 and E200 series are 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
fits best for your ears, so that they stay comfortable even after prolonged use.
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. Such high-level sound isolation also enhances bass response and improves the overall sound quality.
Protect your valuable earphones with the ARCTIC In-Ear Case
Every E300 earphone comes with an ARCTIC In-Ear Case. This compact carrying case is perfect for storing and protecting the earphones. The ARCTIC In-Ear Case can be purchased separately at US$8.95 / 6.45 € MSRP (excl. VAT). It will be available in the market from March.
Multi-functional and multi-compatible earphones
The E361, E351, E231 and E221 also feature a microphone version. This delicate microphone is ideal for phone calls and online communications such as Skype and MSN voice call.
A 3.5mm TRRS plug is equipped for transferring both microphone and earphone signals, which is ideal for mobile phones. For devices such as PCs, which support only the standard 3.5 stereo plug, it is necessary to use the adapter provided to use both the earphones as well as the microphone.
An additional adapter cable is required to use the ARCTIC SOUND earphones with Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Motorola, Samsung and LG mobile phones. It can be purchased at the Webshop http://headphones.arctic-cooling.com for US$4.95 including worldwide shipping.
