SteelSeries Flux Luxury Edition Review

Let The Music Flux

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.

So what makes the Luxury Edition of the Flux luxurious? Several factors. The biggest difference is the earpads. Instead of using the SND Sound Block earpads (which we love, by the way) found on the original Flux, the luxury edition comes with pleather earcups. Other differences include an orange cable and a set of exclusive silver earcup covers.

But the Flux Luxury Edition is still a Flux at the core. It’s still got the same 40mm drivers, same on-ear earcups, and the same sleek frame designed to be hung around your neck all day long. Will SteelSeries’ first true mobile headset be a majestic symphony or a royal flux up? Let’s find out!

    I must say that compared to the much more expensive beats solo that these were more comfortable and sounded great but I am still not someone who would purchase on-ear. Also the folding/carrying feature of these headphones was a bit wierd, they fold but not to a super compact form. I would just wear them open around my neck instead.

    I’m thinking of getting over the ear headphones. Debating if I should get the Bose QuietComfort 15 or not:/ Also trying to buy CDs instead because they have much better quality.

    • Nope. Not worth it unless you’re planning on doing all your listening in loud environments (Plane, office with loud AC, train, etc.) since the Quiet Comfort series are active noise cancellation headphones. Try something like the Beyerdynamic T70 if you want something amazing.

      Or for a lower budget, try the AudioTechnica ATH-M50S
