Just read this, thats a pretty bold claim lol.
Lol there's no such thing as "the best" in the audiophile world.
Different people have different tastes there's bound to be haters for a particular set of headphones.
Well if steelseries used "The best" to advertise their product I'm expecting a product like beats. (not implying that beats are bad)
Yet again we shall give those a benefit of the doubt. Some1 shld post their experience of these once he/she tried them.
Even though this thread is somewhat old, I'll put in my two cents:
The Steelseries flux is a gaming headset...I really don't have a problem with gaming headsets. I have not looked at this in person nor tried them on, so take this with a grain of salt.
It's $100. There are many great headphones for around $100 depending on one's needs and the Steelseries Flux actually satisfies a lot of what I want from a headphone. I am a huge fan of on-ears since over-ears just make my ears sweat and heat up way too fast and also these have a detachable cable. I love when headphones have detachable cables so this is one thing I do like along with the ability to fold the earcups flat. What I don't like is the plastic construction BUT these headphones are priced on the official Steelseries website for $100.
As for a $100 headset...I think this is a good buy but try it on first...and don't judge like me...which I have tried not to do
They sound good, no doubt about that. I did some quick A:Bs with some of the entry-level single-armatures I like - the UE 600 and MEElec A161P - and they about held their ground. Don't know if I would recommend it over those in general since there are some odd design choices like the modular plug with proprietary connector, but it's a solid buy and surprisingly on the balanced end of the spectrum for something from a "gaming" company.
I also quite like the regular Flux, the dynamic-driver one. It's a lot cheaper and seems to really get into the value-for-money territory. That one will get a review.
- now its getting interesting :)
