After using the headset for a while I found it to be comfortable to use for short periods of time. The sound was great and I enjoyed the surround experience. The headset not only dampens all the noise around you, but also dampens the sound coming out of the headphones for those around you. You can still have the music loud, while still being quiet for those around you.
The P531 is a great gaming headset and has MSRP of $66.34. However, you can find a more affordable price if you some quick searching online. Despite Arctic not being a well known brand by many, the headset still has the quality of well known manufactures. This isn’t a cheap headset that’s going to fall apart on you in a month. Overall ThinkComputers would like to award the Arctic Sound P531 5.1 Gaming Headset a 9 out of 10 score.
- 5.1 Surround
- Uncomfortable after a while for those with glasses
- In-line volume adjust for rear, sub, center channels doesn’t seem to do much
