SteelSeries Flux Headphones Review

Headphones, and indeed headsets, usually follow a design pattern with the microphone attached to the left ear-piece or, as is usually the case with SteelSeries ones, can be retracted into the ear-piece itself. However, no matter how clever the design is they are obviously a product aimed at a computer audience and so not necessarily the kind of thing you want to be seen with in public.
Judging from the insane popularity of the Beats headphones the importance of being seen in public with the right thing, coupled to the multiple colour combinations, it's clear that the on-the-ear style of headphone are making a rapid resurgence after years spent lagging behind the bud style.
All of that preamble brings us to today's review of the SteelSeries Flux.
This is a total change in design ethos, aimed squarely at the audiophiles who also want to look cool. It comes in two main colours, black and white, but has a lot of colour-changing options to ensure that you can customise it to taste.
As always with our reviews we already know how good or bad the product is by the time we come to write, and we're telling you right now to buckle up tight.
The numbers don't tell the whole story, but even so the Flux has some impressive audio response numbers and very good impedance. As with all headphones though the proof is in the comfort and the listening experience. So read on.
