The headset features Bluetooth v2.1+EDR, in which it supports secure simple Bluetooth pairing. The connection status is indicated by a LED light on the headphone. Thanks to the Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) technology, the ARCTIC Sound P311 can ensure clear and undistorted sound quality since it runs digitally. Distortion that was generated by alternating current that affected analog devices would no longer be an issue.

This immensely increases the quality when making calls. The ARCTIC Sound P311 is rechargeable via USB cable and can serve up to 20 hours of playback time.

I used the Arctic Sound P3121 Bluetooth Headset in multiple situations for over 2 weeks. I also got some friends and customers to give them a try and tell me what they thought; the overall consensus? Positive, the Arctic Sound P3121 Bluetooth Headset not only performed very well for both audio and call quality it also blew people away when I got them to walk all the way to the other end of our shop while I rested the iPhone it was pared to on the adjacent wall (about 30 feet away). The audio tapered off at about 35 feet at half charge. Considering the iPhones miniscule Bluetooth receiver, my colleagues and I could not believe the range and the maintained quality of the Arctic Sound P3121 Bluetooth Headset. The audio bass, treble, and mid-range response was crisp clear and the bass hits were nice a deep. I was blown away by the overall weight of the unit I was expecting a more substantial pressure on my ears but the Arctic Sound P3121 Bluetooth Headset are light as a feather.
Would I recommend this product? Yes, unless you are into the asinine looking jawbone style headsets that make most people look like arrogant twerps in which case this won’t be the right headset for you. If you are looking for quality of sound and function then I would suggest getting yourself an Arctic Sound P3121 Bluetooth Headset, you won’t regret it.
