SteelSeries Flux Headset Review

Hardware Secrets Golden Award

Introduction (Cont’d)

The headset comes with a set of two cables: one with an in-line microphone and two 3.5 mm jacks to plug into a desktop/laptop; and another with an in-line microphone and a play/pause button that works with a mobile device (iOS or Android). This one ends up on a single 3.5 mm jack. Both cables are encased in rubber, and the luxury edition set comes in orange.

Since both cables are not long, the luxury edition features an extension cord so the headset can be plugged into the rear of a desktop PC, which is usually farther from the user than a laptop on the table. The extension is thus unnecessary if he or she uses the Flux with a laptop or a cellphone in his or her pocket. The luxury edition also comes with a transport bag.
