Just before the New Year arrived, I was handed the baton of the Audio Editor position. For my first audio review, I'd like to explain a little a bit about how I personally consume audio.
I sit at my desk each and every day -rain, hail, or shine- to bring our amazing readers fresh, unbiased news. On top of this, I run and contribute content to many sections of the site, so when I'm sitting at my PC, I like to listen to music.
I listen to a wide variety of music, but my greatest enjoyment is listening to the scores of movies. I'll listen to anything from the Man of Steel soundtrack, or the Dark Knight soundtrack, right down to orchestral versions of many of my favorite movie themes. I range right up to something like Juno Reactor, or Blink 182, and everything in between.
As for games, I'm a big first-person shooter fan, so my testing will consist of using Battlefield 4. FPS games, in my opinion, are a great battleground for PC gaming headsets, thanks to their reliance on positional audio, bass, and more.
BitFenix is a company I've worked with closely over the years, and its new Flo headset is something I liked the look of at Computex 2013 in Taiwan. I visited the BitFenix offices, and was amazed at what they had done with many products, but now I have the Flo in my hands - well, on my head to be precise - so let's get right into it.

BitFenix has baked in its awesome 'SofTouch' Surface Treatment, which provides the Flo with a great touch to the hand. As for specifications:
You can find the Flo on Amazon for $70, which is damn cheap. It doesn't have the bells and whistles of the other headsets, but you can't complain at that price! As for availability, you should have no problems finding a Flo near you.
