Steelseries Flux Luxury Headset

The Headset

The Flux headset itself is an over the ear affair, with a flexible headband, leather ear cups, replaceable side covers and an overall black theme. It’s a good looking headset, as far as this style goes.

If you’re not a fan of the side stylings though, they’re easily replaceable thanks to their magnetic holdings. This makes them simple to swap out with the glossy black replacements.

The headband is very adjustable and has a lot of room for extra fat heads like the one sitting on yours truly’s shoulders.

For ease of carrying as well, the Flux folds up nicely to make a pretty compact package.This is also good if you drop it, as chances are it’ll just bend with whatever impact it takes instead of snapping.

A little different from most headsets, the Flux features twin input/output ports. This allows you to have the audio coming out of whichever side of your head you want, but it also means that should someone else come along that wants to listen to what you’re listening to, they can simply daisy chain your headsets together and listen in.

No foam or leather padding on the headband, just soft rubber.

The cable that you connect up the Flux to your audio device splits into two, so you can provide an output for the mic built into the cable, though if you use this on a PC you’ll need to use the extender as it’s only a couple feet long. If you’se using your phone however, there’s a single use cable so you don’t have the extras flapping around.

That little orange block? That’s the stealthed mic. It’s pretty small and hangs a good few inches under your chin.
