Steelseries Flux Luxury Headset

flux-slide

Introduction

Steelseries produce a lot of gaming peripherals. That’s been their focus for a long time. But these days it’s not all about the giant gaming cans with the big boom mic. It’s about mobile phone gaming on the move – which means looking cool while doing so.

While I’m not going to ever look cool wearing any pair of headphones, perhaps the Steelseries Flux can help me out a little bit. Let’s see.

Features and Specs

Headphones

  •   Frequency response: 18 – 28000 Hz
  •   Impedance: 29 Ohm
  •   SPL@ 1kHz, 1 Vrms: 118 dB
  •   Cable length: 2m
  •   Jacks: 3.5 mm

Microphone

  •   Frequency response: 50 – 16000 Hz
  •   Pick up pattern: Omni-directional
  •   Sensitivity: -38 dB

As well as this the Flux boasts the ability of customisation (as previously mentioned), a set of impressive acoustics powered by 40mm drivers, a detachable cable system (coming with 2 cables), a microphone on each cable and the ability to share your sound with others.

When opening the box of the Luxury Edition you get the following items and accessories:

- The Headset (obviously)

- A set of removable side plates and a glossy black set

- A protective carry case (made of nice quality material with a zipper)

- A Headset extension cable with a high quality 3.5mm gold plated jack

- A PC cable (which also works with iPods)

- A mobile phone cable

(Thanks CCL, I didn’t want to type all that up).

Unboxing

The packaging for the Flux Luxury edition is pretty minimal which is nice. I’m one of those guys that while occasionally swayed by fancy packaging, I’d rather have something simple as the box is going in the bin after opening anyway. Saves on cost.

As a plus too, this packaging doesn’t slide your hands up AND is easy to open. Bonus points to SS for that.

Fair few bits, but nothing that unusual. Some setup manuals, product leaflets, a small carry bag – always prefer a carry case if possible – and some headphone/mic extension cables.
