BitFenix Flo PC Gaming Headset Review - Offers Great Value at $69
BitFenix launches its first gaming headset, the BitFenix Flo, for $69. It represents great value, but there are some improvements that can be made.

Music Impressions

 

I played some bass-heavy tracks on the Flo, and boy does it sound great. The sound quality itself is around what I'd expect from a $69 headset, but the bass is quite impressive. It's provides a nice thump, but it doesn't go completely overboard.

I listened to a wide variety of tunes with the Flo headset, and came away impressed with its ability to keep my ears filled with audio goodness.

 

Personally, I use headphones whenever I'm working, so I'm connected to Spotify the entire time, listening to something. Using the Flo for extended periods of time is something I just cannot do, and that's where personal opinions come into play.

 

Every single person is different, with different sized heads, so you're going to maybe want to try before you buy with the Flo (if you can that is). If you have a smaller head, you'll be fine, but if you know you might be uncomfortable, you'll have to think twice.

 

 

Gaming Impressions

 

I didn't expect the world from BitFenix's Flo headset, but I came away impressed with its abilities in the gaming department.

 

Positional audio wasn't perfect, but this would be something related to a dedicated sound card, which if you had one, would make the Flo much better in games. I could clearly hear things in games without a problem, whether it was behind or in front of me.

 

For other games, like RTS games, the Flo would be perfect. It has crisp audio, and enough bass to hear those explosions or shots fired with clarity.

 

I walked away from gaming sessions knowing that BitFenix did a damn fine job at delivering a great audio experience for gamers with the Flo. Casual gamers can get in on the action, too; they're not just limited to those hardcore first-person shooter addicts.

The included volume control is really cool; it's something I came to enjoy. The microphone being detachable is another nice touch from BitFenix.
