Arctic Sound E461 Earphones ReviewPosted on 2011-10-29 21:13:29 by Thomas De Maesschalck
Just six months ago, we took a look at Arctic Sound's E361 earphones. They were not only stylish and affordable, but also capable of producing enjoyable, accurate sound. Barely half a year later, Arctic has us taking a look at their newest earphones - the E461. Compared to Arctic's previous product, the E461 costs $27 more (49.95 vs. 22.95), features lower sensitivity and impedance, but has slightly better frequency response for the low-end. Lower impedance means that the unit will be more efficient in using electrical energy, whereas lower sensitivity implies that the earphones need more power to sound loud. On paper, these two items should balance one another out. Hopefully, however, the E461 proves to be a solid upgrade to the existing E361. The improved low-end (on paper) is a certainly welcomed addition.
