BitFenix Flo Headset Review
BitFenix exploded into the market with the Colossus case, combining the experience of their design team with some forward thinking innovations. Since then they've carved out a large chunk of the case market for themselves, with the Prodigy in particular finding a spot in many homes.
As with so many companies who have established themselves, so new branches are probed to see if there are other avenues that would benefit from their outlook. So far BitFenix have restricted themselves to case addons with fans and drive-bay mods etc, so the Flo headset marks the first true departure for them from the established formula.
So what is the Flo all about? We'll let BitFenix themselves explain :
From the get go, the BitFenix Design Lab set out to make a PC headset that users would want to wear away from the PC. Coating the earcups is none other than BitFenix SofTouch™ Surface Treatment for a premium matte finish. Even the cables come with aluminum sheaths for an impressively high-quality look and feel. Available in four vibrant colors, Flo offers the clean and modern form that BitFenix is known for.
A headset that you'd be comfortable wearing outdoors sounds intriguing. Let's take a closer look.
Whilst the BitFenix Flo is available in four colours, we have the red one on hand today. The frequency response is right on point with the 20Hz-20kHz being equal to almost every other headset on the market. Including so many types of cable shows that the 'Indoors/Outdoors' approach is more than just a marketing gimmick.
