SteelSeries Headset

Flux In-Ear Pro Headset

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.

Wearing Over the Ear

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.

SteelSeries Headset

Swappable Cable Ends

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 three-pole 3.5mm jack and a PC cable with a 3.5mm headphone jack and a 3.5mm microphone jack have both been included.

Balanced Armature Technology

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.

Under The Ear Or Normal Style

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.

SteelSeries Headset

Comply Memory Foam Tips

We have included memory foam tips for an even better audio experience. imply squish the tips with your fingers and put in the ear buds. 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.

Silicone Ear Tips in Three Sizes

We have also included standard silicone ear tips in three sizes: Small, Medium and Large.

SteelSeries Headset

Carrying Case

We included a sleek carrying case to protect your headset. In addition, can hold your extra cable and ear tips.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat clarity and very good mic

Pros: They have a very crisp sound, not overpowering in any specific range like some other earbuds & headphones. Various sized inserts make them adaptable to virtually any sized ear canal, and the memory foam inserts are AMAZING. They block out almost all sound, I'm unable to hear my phones ringing that are only a foot away when I use them. The mic works very well also, people are able to hear me clearly. Over the ear design took some getting use to but I absolutely love it, doing this completely eliminates the otherwise annoying "wire noise" you get with other earbuds when you touche the wire (think of the old string between two cups trick, same idea). The flat cord means they don't get tangled, and the separate plug ends for mobile/PC are a GREAT addition.

Cons: Although the audio is crisp, there isn't enough bass for listening to music with a heavy bass line (eg dubstep, techno, rap).

Other Thoughts: These headphones really shine for online gaming, and are great for video/audio conferencing. I've been using them at work on my laptop for video chat meetings, phone calls & online gaming during my lunch break. I've also used them with my phone for gaming and music and they're pretty awesome.

5 out of 5 eggsBest I've ever used

Pros: These earbuds or headset or whatever you call them are great in my opinion. I've never owned an expensive set of earbuds. I usually spend big money on "over the ear" headphones and these sound like I've got a really nice set of full size headphones on. Bass is very good...not subwoofer good but you're talking a speaker the size of your pinkie fingernail so for the size it's great. I love the ability to use these on my computer using the standard headphone/microphone jacks as well as my smartphone when I'm at the gym to listen to music. They come with a really nice small zippered case with a pocket inside to carry the different sizes of rubber tips and the PC or 3.5mm connector. One of the tips included is made of the a high density foam similar to memory foam and when used will cancel out any outside noise. These are really nice and work great but you don't want to remove them once in because it's kind of a job to get them in correctly. They'd be great if you're by yourself doing something like running on a treadmill.

I've also tried these out on the computer as a headset while using Rosetta Stone. The program requires that you speak back to the computer in the language you're learning. These worked wonderful for that. Much less cumbersome that using a headset. I could see these as just perfect for gaming and I'm guessing that's the market the designers were aiming for.

Overall I'm very happy with these and love using them.

Cons: I really can't think of anything bad to say about these. I guess I could say that it'd be nice if the cord was longer. My PC isn't sitting right in front of me so it was a stretch getting them from the floor to my ears. I assume most people would be using these with a smartphone or laptop and not a huge issue for most people. The newegg description also says that they are 9.8 feet long which is far from the truth. I think they are actually 1.2 meters which would be just under 4 feet.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a nice headphone but hate using those big heavy "over the ears" models I would highly recommend these for you.

4 out of 5 eggsEar buds

Pros: Different size ear tips + a set of the comply ear tips
light weight
over the ear guides
cell / MP3 head plug & computer audio / mic plugs
Ribbon cable.
Over all good sound.

Cons: No ear wings, to help hold buds in your ear.
had some popping when cable bounced after about 4 miles of running but not every time.

Other Thoughts: Mic is next to your chin and not down at your chess, less need to hold it close to your mouth so other people can hear you. the Comply foam tips are memory foam and they are best used if your running with them as they help hold them end, but they block other sounds like bikers coming up behind you.

2 improvements I like to see is the bluetooth added and ear wings to hold them buds in place, with the normal tips.

5 out of 5 eggsEarbuds for audiophiles and/or runners

Pros: Extremely comfortable. They provide two malleable curved pieces of rubber to fix around the wire which wraps around follows the contour of your ear; no uncomfortable rigid plastic that can chafe when used during exercise. There are multiple sizes of earbud tips to ensure you’ve got a comfortable fit. It also includes foam tips – think of these essentially as those compressible hearing protection / ear plugs you can pick up at hardware stores, only with an opening to insert the earphones. These allow me to get crystal clear audio in noisy places; helps keep distractions out and focus high.

The foam tips combined with the “Ear guides” (as they call them) will keep them in place during rigorous activity. I’ve had some issues in the past with earbuds falling out or rigid frames uncomfortably chafing while running; not the case with these.

Also comes with the option of swapping out the end of the cable with either a jack for mobile phones or for a pc – use as a hands free set on your phone or for video chat on your computer.

I am very impressed with this headset.

Cons: Only con I can think of pertains to the microphone – occasionally the people I spoke with had difficulty hearing me. But honestly? I’ve had to repeat myself more often using just my phone.

The memory foam tips really do block out almost all sound. Translation: *do not use the memory foam tips in your headset while driving!*

Other Thoughts: I know this probably sounded like a puff-piece, but that’s only because of how impressed I am with the product. No one’s giving the Eggxpert Reviewers any money for these reviews.

4 out of 5 eggscstmcomps

Pros: cord does not tangle easily
really impressive audio quality at mid-volume levels... see cons
in-line mic picks up well and doesn't have much of a problem with background noise
mic is convenient as you don't have to unplug when a call comes in
option for devices that don't need the mic, or have separate mic input

Cons: Bass gets lost at low volume and distorted with intermittent crackles at high volume
for the price I would have expected higher quality audio at all volume ranges
quality control issues, right ear piece was cracked at the seam. Some super glue fixed this, but for the asking price super glue shouldn't ever be necessary

Other Thoughts: These are really impressive, but for the price I would have expected better... even audio quality across entire volume range, better quality control

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Ear-Buds. Great Sound

Pros: - Great sound. Full bass

- Comfortable fit

- Flat "non-tangle" cable

- Works for Mobile, PC, and Mac machines

- Right Angle connector

- PC cable included for connecting audio and mic

- Foam "Comply" tips are included

- Over the ear hooks are included

- Small, Medium and Large in-ear tips are included

- Carrying Case included

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Wow these things sound great. I don't play many computer games, but I was excited to try these out with my HTC One, while running. The sound is very rich and I was presently surprised as this is my first experience with SteelSeries and head phones. The bass sounded good with plenty of depth without sounding like it flattened out. The highs and mids were present and the overall song sounded "full". I pitted these against my 'in-ear' headphones that came with my HTC One. I was always impressed with the "generic" set that came with my HTC One but this set will now replace those. This set just sounds better. Simple as that. I do love the fact that both head phones share the flat cable design. This really helps things from getting tangled up and twisted.

There are plenty of mounting options to choose from with the small, medium and large silicone tips and the "comply" foam tips. I ended up using the foam tips as I liked how they formed to my inner ear and held in place. The foam tips held up great to me running for a few miles and I believe I only had to adjust them once. The tips are very similar to a high-end set of swimming ear plugs or firing range ear plugs. I did not try out the over the ear hooks as I don't generally like that style of head phones, but thought that was great to be included.

I really liked the right angle connector. I felt that it was less obstructive in my pocket or while the phone was mounted to an arm band.

I had no issues connecting the headset up to my PC audio jacks using the included adapter. It is very easy to pop off the 3.5mm connector and pop on the split adapter.

Overall the style of the headset is appealing. I think they look pretty sleek but aren't so loud that they are distractive.

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible Earbuds

Pros: These earbuds were great even from the moment I opened the box. Everything was well packed and they came with a nice little carrying case that would easily travel with you in your pocket, etc. First impressions before actually trying them out, I noticed that they came with a huge variety of tips , including memory foam ones, that I think just about anyone should be able to find one of them to be comfortable. For a moment they almost looked like they would be awkward to wear because of their shape, but they stay in my ear way better than all other sets of earbuds I have had in the past. They also have swappable cable ends to work with most popular devices. There is a button and a microphone on the cable as well so that you can use them with your phone. Now, for sound quality. From the moment I hit play I was just impressed with them. The first bit of music I played was some dubstep and breakcore, and the lows that these deliver are crazy for how tiny they are, I have never had a set of earbuds that went as low as these. I switched over to some metal, followed with some folk and classical. The sound range of these earbuds seems to be very balanced and full ranged, there is hardly anything they didn't reproduce properly. I have never had earbuds (I have had large headphones that do) make you feel bass in your head, but these ones did a decent bit and that was impressive. Needless to say, I think I just found my new favorite set of earbuds to travel around with me.

Cons: I could not find too many things to complain about with these, however I do have a few things I will make note of. The no-tangle cord seems to be more of a gimmick, but they are not too terribly easy to tangle if you take care of them right. The adapter with the other connectors on the end has 2 connectors, one for mic and one for the sound. I would like to have one more without the dangling microphone connector for when I want to use just the earbuds.

Other Thoughts: Final notes about these are as follows. For sound I will note that the sound reproduction and quality changes dramatically between devices, and because these respond in such a broad, balanced and, full manner, the sound differences are incredibly noticeable, but with a high quality source, they sound great. They seem to cancel out surrounding noise pretty well. They are fairly comfy to wear and I didn't have any issues using them for hours on end, though they do feel alittle like ear plugs to me

4 out of 5 eggsA Great Pair of In-Ear Headphones!

Pros: I was genuinely surprised by these headphones. From the moment I opened the box, it was clear that this product is well thought-out – the carrying case is very small, but can fit the headphones, and all of the included accessories, comfortably. The cables all feel high quality, and every connection feels firm and secure. The interchangeable connectors for smartphones and computers is brilliant – I have used them both, and they work flawlessly with my Galaxy Note 3 and the front panel of my gaming desktop, respectively.

An ample tip selection is provided, although the standard medium tips fit my ear canals perfectly, and do an acceptable job of sealing out external noises. The Comply tips should fit anyone, and are very, very impressive at noise reduction. With the Comply tips in, I could barely hear my very loud window A/C unit while standing just a few feet from it, with no music playing.

The real enjoyment with these headphones starts the moment you press “play”. I am an EDM fan, so I started off with a new favorite of mine, Gula from deadmau5’s new album. The piano intro sounded beautifully balanced and crisp, the rhythmic middle section brought out these headphones’ great response with all its’ pops and clicks, and the sing-songy synth section made the hairs on the back of my neck prickle, showing off the amazing midrange that these little earbuds pack. More of the same through Skrillex’s album feature-track, Recess – I have trouble picking things out that I don’t like about these headphones, especially in the middle of my favorite tracks.

To mix it up, I tried something completely different, and put on Sweet Emotion by Aerosmith. Again, these headphones impress, bringing through strong, rich bass guitar and crystal-clear cymbals and chimes. The vocals in harmony with a wah-wahing guitar were just so satisfying. A lover of pipe organs and musicals, I then switched to the Overture and “The Point of No Return” from Phantom of the opera. Low and high organ notes are both sublime through these headphones, as are a Broadway orchestra, with soft violins, bright trumpets, and punchy percussion. The Phantom’s heart-wrenching vocals captivate you and really make you feel like you are enjoying the production live from the third row.

I have worn these headphones for many hours over the past week or so, and for 5 or 6 hours straight. I am pleasantly surprised to say that I have experienced no discomfort, even during extended listening. My ear canals tend to be sensitive after removing these, but I have not noticed any pain. It is notable, too, that ear fatigue is nearly non-existent with these headphones – a far cry from my amateur car audio system, which can be fatiguing after just a song or two.

Cons: My biggest gripe that I began to notice more and more as I worked my way through my music library was the disappointing level of bass that these earbuds are capable of delivering. The notes are there – 20 and 30 Hz tones are audible, but are much fainter than the rest of the frequency range. Response seems to become more linear around 50-60 Hz, which means midbass does not suffer as heavily. This deficiency did not bother me while listening to EDM, rock, pop, or show tunes, but became obvious when listening to hip-hop and rap. The beat that you expect is there, but very quiet. Attempting to fill the gap by adjusting the equalizer did something, but not enough to put bass on par with my other pair of earbuds (IE2s by a company that rhymes with “Rose” – which are overly warm-sounding compared to the Steelsieres). However, I am picking nits, especially with my listening style, and how well these headphones perform in every other category. Definitely not a deal-breaker. Note: Bass response is slightly improved by using a properly amplified source, such as a standalone headphone amp, or a receiver.
The other disappointment is the “no-tangle” cable: With careful wrapping and storage you can greatly reduce the amount that these cords tangle, but the first time I wrapped these back up, I paid no attention to my technique. Later in the day I attempted to unravel them and they simply turned into an ugly ball of wires, and were no easier to untangle than my IE2s. Again, not a deal-breaker for me, but it’s one marketed feature that I disagree with. Speaking of marketing, yes, the advertised cord length is wrong! The cord is not 9.8 feet, but closer to 3.5 feet. This is plenty long to use with a mobile phone or a laptop, but can restrict motion when hooked to a desktop.
In the manual it states that the Comply tips should be replaced every 6 months of typical usage – I have a hard time seeing any one doing this, especially since I can’t seem to find a link to order them from Steelseries’ website.

Other Thoughts: If you look at other headphones in this price range, you can clearly see that Steelseries has some big shoes to fill. However, as much as I can guess from having listened to these headphones and not the other, I believe they are well up to the challenge. My expectations were high with these earbuds, and they have been met and exceeded. I would recommend these headphones to anyone considering high-end in-ear headphones without hesitation.
