BitFenix Flo Headset Review
The Flo packaging is robust and clear, with good shots of the headset itself, as well as a window so that you can see the Flo and make sure the colour matches your requirements. We know we can't be the only people who've purchased something that claims to be a regular blue, only to find it's sky blue, or navy blue. On the reverse are the usual specifications laid out simply and clearly. If you didn't know that these were dual-purpose it wouldn't be unrealistic to find them in the audio section of your local music emporium.
There certainly are plenty of choices when it comes to attaching the Flo to your audio weapon of choice. From a plain 3.5 to dual ones and an inline remote, as well as an extension cable and removable microphone, every option has been covered.
There are many touches on the Flo that seem to take the best of many offerings and combine them into a whole. Lightness is key to portability and they certainly have that covered, being some of the lightest ones we've tested in recent times. The closed back design allows for the sound to be contained to your ears only and also serves as a handy place to put the BitFenix logo. The finish is very nice to the touch and there is no doubt that when they say it's red, it's RED.
Subtle positioning of the microphone and cable input means that even without the microphone in place your cover isn't blown when out in public. It takes a couple of goes to remember which hole is which, but the cable locks solidly in place and isn't loose at all, so it will stand the rigours of jogging or public transport.
