What's Hot


The sound quality: $42.99 pushing out $120 worth of sound quality? Yes please. Punchy bass and clear treble? Yes please. These headphones? Yes please!




Comfort in the long-run: Although sceptical about the on-ear design, these headphones perform quite well in the comfort department for any extended travel you may embark on.


Price tag: Once again, a $42.99 product that looks, feels and sounds $120 - you can't go wrong.


The wiring: It was very smart of ARCTIC to place part of the headphone cable outside the device, you will thank them in the long-run.


What's Not


No 3.5mm connection: If only this could be included, these headphones would be even more useful.


Microphone: The microphone sensitivity is not strong enough and causes issues.




Ear cup size: Depending on the size of your ears, the small ear cups might annoy you slightly.



Final Thoughts


Sceptical at first, I've tried and tested quite a few Bluetooth and NFC headsets in my time. Providing 30 hours of playback, a synthetic leather carry-pouch and a fancy-looking exterior drew me in originally to this device, then I put it on and it blew me away.




For $42.99 (until the end of March 2015), we can barely find any reasons for you not to buy this product. It sounds great, feels comfortable, it's sturdy, durable and also very easy to clean and keep maintained due to the flat ear cup design. If we had a more sensitive microphone on offer, we'd basically have a perfect product, but that let's things down. We also would have preferred to see a 3.5mm audio connection, and while not a deal breaker considering the sound quality and price, it's something to consider.


Please excuse me while I lay in bed and zone out to Pink Floyd - Shine on your Crazy Diamond using my new ARCTIC P614 BT headphones.
