Arctic Cooling is well known amongst computer enthusiasts for their quality cooling solutions, however, now they have expanded their product lineup to include in-ears, consoles, and many other things. Today we will be taking a look at one of their new in-ears unkindly dubbed E361-BM. This set of in-ears features a microphone that is compatible with both PC and iPhone. With a suggested retail price of $60 they are competitively priced and will be going head to head with products from more established brands such as Maximo.

- Ultra-soft material fits gently in your ears providing hours of wearing comfort
- Gold-plated stereo plug for uncompromised signal transmission
Package & Closer Examination
The earphones ship in a small package that lets you see the earphones. Arctic Cooling sent their top of the line E361 model equipped with iPhone ready microphone and remote. The subfix BM refers to the the color black (B) and with microphone (M).
One of the things that surprised me was the bundle. You get everything you need in order to use them on the move and get a decent fit. The carrying case seems durable enough to withstand daily wear and tear and will keep your earphones out of harm’s way when put in your bag.
Arctic Cooling even included a breakout cable so that you can use the earphones and the microphone with your PC. This little piece of kit is a nice addition since it means that you can use them for Skype and other VoIP programs.
