"I would have never imagined that I would find myself falling in love with a pair of earbuds with a $100+ cost, but I have."
"The inclusion of the Comply Foam Tips is probably the single biggest pro. They are incredibly comfortable and I often forget that I am wearing them at all. The other small details like the thicker cable, breakaway cable near the base, and the inclusion of the microphone also help the case tremendously. "

"The SteelSeries Flux In-Ear Pro is a high-quality earbud set for the audio-loving gamer. Music, sound effects, and explosions are vibrant and chunky — what one desires from premium ear-gear. Some may scoff at the price, but should you plunk down some plastic for a pair, you won’t regret the action."

"Overall, it is a good performer – well-balanced, with good bass depth and smooth, gentle treble."
"These headphones are built around what the user needs and not having to worry about 3 different sets of headphones is awesome. I believe that the high price tag is worth it for these superbly made headphones and you will not regret them one bit. Now the only question is, Will Best Buy take back my Beats?"
"If you’re looking for a heartier and feature rich headset than the standard earbuds, then the SteelSeries Flux is a headset worthy of your investment. The price is listed at $129.99 on the SteelSeries site. This is easy sell if you consider that these can also be used for PC/Mac gaming with the included adapter. "

"Bulky headsets are tough to lug around, especially if you already have a 12-pound monster of a gaming laptop. Keeping full-size headphones safe is a hassle that many gamers would rather avoid. The Flux In-Ear Pros give you the best of quality and portability."
Score: 4 stars

"The Pro is badass for gaming. Right away I had the chance to use the adapter cable, and plugged them right into the existing extension cord that I use for my Siberia's. In fact, the Pro is now my go-to headset, even over the Siberia because I enjoy the earbud experience more than the full headset, and the sound and microphone quality is as good or better."
"If you are in the market for a new headset I strongly recommend the Flux In-Ear Pro"
"Swap cables on the go for full compatibility, protect them with a durable carrying case, and experience an incredible audio experience that you will not believe is coming from buds."

"The audio experience is immersive, clean, precise, and accurate from the sweet spot middle of the bass spectrum through the treble zone."
Featuring balanced armature driver technology, the Flux In-ear Pro headset is the most accurate headset SteelSeries has ever produced. Experience a new dimension in your favorite games, music and movies, thanks to the highly detailed soundscape of the finely-tuned balanced armature drivers. Our swappable cable system offers full compatibility with mobile devices, PC and Mac.
Most headsets including all other headsets made by SteelSeries are made with what is called a dynamic driver. This is simply the speaker inside the headset that moves air to create sound.
The balanced armature driver requires no external air to produce sound. This means the driver can be made to be very small and it also means that it can be tuned very precisely. With this precise tuning the driver can recreate sound with an extreme level of accuracy providing an amazing audio experience in a very compact, comfortable design.
For maximum comfort and fit, the Flux In-ear Pro has been designed to be worn over the ear. This allows for a more secure fit and thus creates a better acoustic seal when in your ears. The better the seal, the better the listening experience you can achieve. Over the ear wearing style coupled with our included Comply™ memory foam ear tips will give you the best possible listening experience.
We understand that not everyone is used to the idea of wearing an in-ear headset over the ear. While we truly believe that over the ear will give you a better listening experience, this headset can optionally be worn down. To achieve this you must switch the earbuds’ intended sides; place the left earbud in your right ear and the right earbud in your left ear.
The ends of the Flux In-ear Pro are swappable so that you can use your headset with not only your favorite mobile devices and Mac®, but also with your PC.
A mobile end with a single 3-pole 3.5mm jack and a PC cable with a 3.5mm headphone jack and a 3.5mm microphone jack have both been included.
We have included memory foam tips for an even better audio experience.
Simply roll the tip into a thin, round cylinder and insert into your ear. The memory foam will slow expand to the shape of your ear and create a nice seal to improve the listening experience. You’re welcome.
We have also included standard silicone ear tips in 3 sizes: Small, Medium and Large.
We included a sleek carrying case to protect your headset. In addition, can hold your extra cable and ear tips.
