Great Bass - BitFenix has done some great work with the amount of bass in the Flo headset. It's not too much, but it's also still capable of thumping the heck out of your ears, and head.
The Slick Look - BitFenix has put some time, effort, sweat, tears, and most of all -love, into its Flo headset. It looks great, right down to the physical touch of your finger against the SofTouch on the Flo headset.
Even the cables receive some love, as they aren't just simple 3.5mm cables. BitFenix could've just gone with simple 3.5mm cables to save a few dollars per Flo, but they decided to provide the premium experience, right down to the provided cables.
The Price - At just $70, BitFenix has a credible threat to the sub $100 PC gaming headsets.
Detachable Microphone - A detachable microphone is something that should be the norm with gaming headsets. Not everyone uses voice comms in games - and even if you do, it's not constantly. The ability to disconnect the microphone, and walk around with the Flo headset as a normal set of headphones is a nice thing to be able to do.
The Tightness - I don't have a big head, but it is definitely larger than average, so the Flo headset felt very tight on my noggin. It was uncomfortable after 30 or so minutes of use, but after a while it did stretch out a bit and feel better. Not perfect, but better -something to keep in mind.
If you're after a stylish new PC gaming headset for cheap, BitFenix has a fine contender in the Flo. However, It's not going to win any awards for audio quality, and its design needs some fixing up with its successor.
The detachable microphone is an excellent touch, and so are the extra cables provided in the box. The ability to have a single, shorter cable for mobile listening, as well as another cable for serious gaming with a microphone for voice comms, shows that BitFenix is catering to the gaming audience.
The BitFenix Flo is just $69, which is where I feel bad for criticizing it, because it is a cheap headset. It's not going to compete with the $100+ headsets, let alone $200 and above products, but for $69, it's a great product, and it makes me anticipate BitFenix's next headset.
