P253 BT Bluetooth Stereo Wireless Headset

The Arctic P253 BT wireless stereo headset brings you the high-quality audio experience of stereo sound with the convenience of Bluetooth technology. Up to 30 hours of listening/talk time keeps you connected to your music and social life whenever you need it. Featuring a foldable and collapsible neckband design, the P253 BT is extremely easy to store and carry. Connect it to your phone today, answer phone calls, and listen to your music on the go.

The ARCTIC P253BT Bluetooth stereo wireless headphones with integrated microphone can be used conveniently with any Bluetooth-enabled devices, including iOS, Android or Windows-based smart phones/tablets/laptops/e-Readers/PCs.

Digital Sound Quality
With the Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP), you can enjoy your favorite tracks in full-digital stereo sound quality, while staying completely free from the dreaded tangling cord!

Hands-Free Operation
Audio/Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP), Headset Profile (HSP), and Hands-Free Profile (HFP) support make P253BT a perfect companion for your Bluetooth-enabled smart phones. You no longer have to sacrifice audio quality and settle for single-ear Bluetooth mono-audio earpiece while using your smart phones. P253BT will automatically pause the music when you have incoming calls, and resume playing at exactly where you left off once the calls end.

Extended Playback Time
Up to 30 hours of continuous playback and up to 400 hours of standby time gives you plenty of time to enjoy your favorite music tracks or movies before re-charging. The P253BT can be charged easily via USB port with the supplied charging cable.

Wearing Comfort
The ergonomically designed flexible neckband can be wrapped around the back of your head, keeping the P253BT in place without messing up your hair! The lightweight (only 2.5 ounces), over-ear design ensures maximum comfort even after long hours of use.
Noise Isolation
Soft and plush leather-wrapped padding keeps out most of the annoying background noise and minimizes wearing fatigue. The P253BT is far more comfortable to wear than ear-bud type headphones.

Easy to Use
User-friendly control buttons are easily accessible, allowing you to adjust the volume up and down. Skip the tracks forward and backward, as well as pickup/end incoming phone calls, all with a push of a button.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for the price

Pros: They sound surprisingly good for the price when listening to music and everyone says they can hear me via the built-in microphone which was a concern given that it is up on one of the earpieces so happy overall.

Cons: The earpieces attach to the headband at one point on each earpiece and that is the flex point that keeps the headphones pressed against each ear. The left earpiece flexes out further than the right one slightly so the left to right pressure on the ears is not as symmetric as it could be. It appears to be the way they are made (at least the set I received) so I am subtracting a star for that because it's not bad enough to return, but it is annoying.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor quality, deprecated

Pros: Cheap. Comfortable. Wireless works fairly well.

Cons: Quality of construction is lacking obviously due to the price. Normally this would not be a problem, but the volume down button doesn't work for me. I can occasionally get it to work, but more often than not I'm just changing the volume on my phone.

The charger is Mini-USB, not micro-USB. While the mini-B plug is not officially deprecated, the micro-B plug outperforms it in every aspect, and it was a poor design choice to use mini over micro.

Other Thoughts: I'd send it back for an RMA, but when you pay this little for a product, it's not worth the shipping, even if you don't have to pay for it.

4 out of 5 eggsInexpensive ok headset

Pros: Good very basic headset. I am using them with a pc. Connectivity is fine at least for my use. Within the room I have the computer no problem. Also will stay connected a room or two away albeit there are a few dead spots. Tried it with an Android Tablet, worked ok also. The unit charges via a usb cable and seems to run quite a time between charges. Sound quality is fair. I use it for general use so it's not an issue for me. Not believing in loud music over headsets of any sort makes it also not an issue. It has a mic. but I haven't used it so no comment there.

All in all, for general occasional use, a very decent value.

Cons: Nothing special. It is an inexpensive headset. I did not expect fabulous fidelity so I am more than ok with it. If you think you want loud, high quality reproduction you better spend the big bucks. Then start saving for the hearing aids you'll need later in life.

3 out of 5 eggsLow price, but also cheaply made

Pros: Price, they usually come with a good discount on sale.
They actually transmit sound

Cons: Not adjustable.
Quite uncomfortable to wear, especially together with glasses.
While connected to a PC via an ASUS bluetooth dongle they skip sound during action-packed moments of a game which is quite frustrating.

Other Thoughts: If you can afford it, go for a full cup headphones, these ones are probably worth the sale price, but you won't ever have a pleasant experience with them.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Headphones for the Price

Pros: These are a great little pair of Bluetooth Headphones.

I recently got back into running and I had an old wired pair of headphones I was using. This got to be annoying as the wire would get in the way and stick to me when I sweated.

I began looking at Bluetooth Headphones (as I run with my phone) and I was shocked how much some of them can be. I finally found this pair "on sale" (see Other Thoughts) for $19.99.

They fit well. They are very light. They collapse and fold up nicely when not in use. Overall great pair of Headphones for the money ("sale price")

Cons: The only negative about the product design is the lack of a battery meter. I try to keep them charged, but not to the point of overcharging them and losing battery life. However, I am always afraid they will die on me when running because I never know how much batter life I have left.


You can buy them from the Manufacturer Website for $19.95. They do charge shipping and tax, but the total cost is only $33.44, which is still $6.55 cheaper than NewEgg.

I bought mine on ShellShocker Deal for $19.99 and Free Shipping (if I was willing to wait 7 days). For $19.99 they are the best pair of headphones you will own.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: I love it and take with me everywhere. it has great sound, holds a charge for a long time, and folds up real nicely into a small pocket. I'm very rough with my electronics and it has held up great. It has enough flexibility so u don't have to worry about it breaking.

The sound is so good, I wear them in any vehicle I drive instead of using the vehicle stereo. It's really nice if u like to drive with windows down and still hear ur music. It also stays on ur ears well while walking or running.

Cons: Do not buy this to talk on the phone. The other person will barely be able to hear you.
Just think of it as a great stereo bluetooth for playing media.

keep ur receipt. I bought two and one quit working after a couple weeks. I've been using this other for over a year now and still great.

I wish the volume and skip buttons were laid out differently. If I try to use without taking the headphones off and looking first, i will always choose the wrong button!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value - good sound

Pros: Comfort wearing
Ease of setup, control and use
Good sound quality
Weight and portability.
Battery life

Cons: Headband feels somewhat fragile, so I am planning to transport them a) folder and b) in the soft pouch.
Poor sound isolation, but it should not be expected from $20 bluetooth headphones.

Other Thoughts: These are good headphones I am planning to use as my main set at work and for traveling. They are surprisingly light and easy on the ear, but also because of that - they do not provide enough sound isolation, but I'd sacrifice it, at least for now, since for work its not necessarily a bad thing :)
Controls are easy. Bluetooth setup is easyalthoughh some laptops would not have Bluetooth properly activated, but it besides the point).
These workeequallyyl great with my laptop and iPhone. Sound quality is not the best, but definatelly good enough.

5 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Good price and works great - at good distances from phone

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Paired up easily with my iPHone5s. Has a good distance capability from phone. Music sounds good and phone calls sound good. I have asked the people that I am talking to how I sound and they all say I sound fine and did not know I was using a headset.
