The P531 as almost identical to the Ozone Strato headset. However, as well as the addition of some rather cheap looking silver paint, we also noticed that Arctic's version isn't as well built as Ozone's and several of the components wobble or feel loose—particularly the microphone arm. Plus, the fabric used to cover the headphones isn't as soft and nice as that used in the Strato.

All of this means that the P531 gets one less star for design
than the Ozone version. The P531 therefore gets a three-star score overall, rather then the Strato's four stars.

3/5 Arctic Sound P531 DigitalVersus 2011-05-17 00:00:00


  • Easy to install and use
  • Heavy but comfortable to wear
  • Decent spatial effect


  • Poor-quality finish
  • Lacks precision
  • Lack of sub-bass and general balance
  • Feels heavy when you wear it for a while


Although the Arctic Sound P531 headset is almost identical to the Ozone Strato, the P351 loses a star due to its low-grade finish.
