Bluetooth headsets aimed at casual users and music aficionados come in varying degrees of quality. For those with money to spend, there are a wide variety of options. But for those on a budget, and not looking for a gaming-focused headset, the options out there are widely hit and miss.
Arctic, better known for its line of CPU and GPU coolers, likely sensed the need for a high-feature low-price Bluetooth headset, with its new Arctic P614 BT bluetooth headset. The headset includes a built-in microphone, and is aimed as an accessory for mobile devices but it works just as well as a wireless headset with any computer that supports bluetooth connectivity.
All in all, the company has done something remarkable with the Arctic P614 BT: it has made a headset with crisp, responsive sound that’s comfortable to wear (even for those with oversized heads). Granted, using Bluetooth presents its own sets of limitations when it comes to sound quality but neverless there’s not much left to be desired with Arctic’s headset. It doesn’t disappoint.
Arctic has taken a minimalistic approach with the P614 BT’s box. Inside are the headphones and a small blue box in the middle. The box contains the headphone’s manual, USB connector, and carrying case.
The headphones themselves have a USB connector for charging, as well as a playback controls, volume, and a NFC receiver for one-touch pairing. For connectivity, the headphones support Bluetooth version 4.0. The headphones have an expandable headband allowing users will all head sizes to comfortably enjoy the headset. A built-in microphone is also included.
According to Arctic the headphones have a 40mm enhanced neodymium driver and have a frequency response of 20Hz to 20 KHz.
