SteelSeries offers two types of its Flux headset, the original which comes with SND Sound Block earpads and the Luxury Edition with pleather earcups, a bright orange cable and a set of fancy earcup covers. Apart from that both are powered by 40mm drivers and sport and omnidirectional microphone. A foldable body and cords which can be completely disconnected make these headsets easily portable but don't sacrifice comfort according to Custom PC Review, though your ears will get warm quite quickly. They were impressed with the quality of audio and only had some small complaints about the performance in certain situations, which is a good thing considering the non-Luxury Edition is selling for $120 on NewEgg.
"The word “Flux” is derived from the Latin word “Fluxus”, which means “to flow”. So when SteelSeries sent us a box with the phrase “Flux yourself” printed on the front, we weren’t sure if it’s a compliment or an insult. Luckily, the box contained more than just random words – inside we found SteelSeries newest addition to their ever-growing audio line-up, the SteelSeries Flux Luxury Edition, for our review...."
