SteelSeries Guild Wars 2 Flux Gaming Headset Review

product

The world is going mobile, and SteelSeries prides itself on listening to gamers.  It's not uncommon to see coffee shops with people nabbing free wi-fi to game, and often without equipment that supports that environment.  Even console-quality performance with FPS games like Shadowgun and streaming services like Splashtop which use your computer to render high-quality games to your tablet are already here.  SteelSeries is responding by making a push for their mobile lineup, which features a mobile controller and both in-ear and on-ear speakers.

 

 

Overview

Guild Wars® 2 Gaming Headset

 

The Guild Wars® 2 Headset is a slim-profile, on-ear design featuring red ear cushions made of a mesh, SNDBlock material that filters the superbly engineered sound via its 40mm driver units. Its matte white headband and glossy white, red and black logo design featured on the outer earcups support the Guild Wars 2 look and feel. It’s travel-friendly design allow the earcups to fold inward and lay flat when wearing the headset around the neck; and fold at the hangers for quick and compact storage. It includes a red 3.5mm PC cable with an in-line, omni-directional microphone and mute controls.
