Arctic Cooling E352 Earphones - Final Thoughts

Arctic Cooling really impressed me last month with their aluminum based earphones, the E361's. Now they also offer them in wood. Let's take a look.

Final Thoughts

 

The E352s pack just as much punch as the E361's that came onto the test bench before them.

However, this pair of earphones carries a few different characteristics to their sonic signature this time around thanks to wood being used to make the enclosure chassis rather than aluminum as we saw last month.

 

For a price of around $70-$80AUS, the Arctic Sound E352's are a strong performer as I would have expected after my results in testing the E361's.

 

The microphone while not included in this model, is not missed much personally, but I do have several vendettas against these types of 'quasi' microphones, so perhaps some will wish it was.

 

So, to offer a conclusion here, the audio quality from the E352's is top notch. It takes the impressive performance already proven in the E361's and makes it better.

 

Anybody with a love of audio will appreciate the use of wood for the enclosure chassis and until now i have not personally seen it before.

The performance of the low end is great, creating some of the most impressive omni-directional bass I've heard that literally fills your head.

 

The asking price is pretty good considering what's on offer and hopefully they will be available soon.

 

Keep an eye peeled for Arctic Sound in the future; I hope they can expand on this impressive start with some speaker systems before too long.
