Technical parameters of the headset, the catechumens stated by the manufacturer are not complete. There are companies that provide a more detailed list of the capabilities of the device. In most cases you can find a brief version. With regards to ARCTIC P614 we can say that the claimed frequency range is quite good and will meet the needs of most owners.

Also pay attention to the fact that the market has a "twin" of the device - ARCTIC P614 BT. It is a wireless solution that will appeal to those who do not like the wires.

Package and content  

ARCTIC P614

The headset comes in a small dense carton box. External performance is plain and concise. Printing is applied in branded white and blue colors, and sizes are minimalist, given the size of headphones. Used materials for the box say about its sustainability, which is good because the plastic is very problematic in terms of its utilization.

Most of the space on the front side takes a large image of the headset indicating the model and manufacturer. In addition, developers emphasize its main advantages:

  • a microphone;
  • extra comfort;
  • use of high-quality neodymium drivers.

On the left side are the main advantages of the device in different languages, as well as advertisement of other products of company ARCTIC.

The right side face contains a large image of headphones in profile with a large scale. In general, it increases the information content of the package and gives an idea of the appearance.

Information on the back side in more detail reveals the capabilities of ARCTIC P614. Here is a series of images that tell about the possibility of adjusting the depth of the headband, comfortable ear cushions, the use of durable materials in the design and the presence of the cover to transport the headset. Also there is a description of control button on the microphone. You can use it not only to answer the calls, but also perform control player while listening to music (pause / play tracks), although it is worth remembering that these features depend on the OS of device to be connected with the headset. In addition here you can find reported specification and package if the device.

Inside everything is tight enough. Empty space is virtually absent.

The bag is made of artificial leather. It will be useful for transport and storage of headset.

Design and elements layout  

ARCTIC P614

The exterior of the headphones is very well. We can not say that it is bright or, on the contrary, faded. In terms of color palette the dominated color is a strict black, which is added with silver and chrome accents.

To describe the dimensions of ARCTIC P614 in a word, they are moderate. Caps look quite neat and headband does not create the feeling of massiveness.

ARCTIC P614

The main structural rigidity is provided by a wire frame, which gradually becomes a resilient wire holder. Its ends contain cups. It is difficult to say what else is inside the headband, but the inner material is sufficiently malleable to the pressure.

This holder provides a sufficiently large freedom for cups in rotation about a horizontal axis. They can be deployed at an angle of 340 - 350 degrees. Turning around the vertical axis is not provided, so the cup has a slight angle to each other. This ensures a uniform pressure on the head with respect to the necessary additional space for the ears. Incidentally, the angle is chosen correctly.

At the ends the headband has metal fittings with holder and wire.

ARCTIC P614

If necessary, the depth of the headband is adjustable. The holder can be extended by 4 cm on each side. Despite the absence of depth clamps spontaneous displacement is not happened.

ARCTIC P614

Ear cups have average dimensions (diameter 7.5 cm). Outside they are covered with sufficient quality touch leatherette. The inner part is a bit unusual. Along the perimeter there is elastic filler, but the central part seems hollow, though it is not quite true, if you look at the design of the cup in the section.

ARCTIC P614

Thus, the sound passes without any obstacles and there is not excessive pressure on the ears.

ARCTIC P614

The case is made of plastic, but on the outside there are stylish metal inserts with radial texture. In the center is the manufacturer's logo.

There is one wire from one headphone. The speakers are connected to each other via a thin wire that passes through the inside of the headband.

ARCTIC P614

Inside the headband is covered in leatherette, and the outside is covered with a light cloth with protective black netting.

ARCTIC P614

This decoration, probably will not be the most practical option, as in the operation the bright fabric may be contaminated, although this nuance can be hidden due to the fine grid.

ARCTIC P614

The interface cable does not cause any complaints. It looks strong enough, and the transparent external insulation and internal silver braid add zest to the appearance of the headset.
