Specifications by Arctic Cooling

Sound of Quality - Specifications by AC

Its unique aluminium chassis and large drivers deliver deep bass and precise highs right into your ear canals. The ultra-soft silicone caps in multiple sizes block most outside noise, giving you comfort fit and undisturbed audio experience.

Main features:

  • Large driver coil leads to ultimate bass performance
  • The precisely milled aluminium chassis transmits a perfect balance of high and low frequencies
  • 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

    This outstanding earphone delivers 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 aluminium 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.

    Comfort fit, sound isolation and enhanced bass by soft silicone caps

    To achieve top-notch listening experience, E361 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 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

    E361 earphone comes with an ARCTIC In-Ear Case. This compact carrying case is perfect for storing and protecting the earphones.

    Multi-functional and multi-compatible earphones

    The E361 also features 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
