To use the device, you simply attach the included cable to one of the two inputs located on the left and right cans, then plug in your microphone and headphone ends into their respective jacks on your laptop or PC. Approximately six inches off the headphone end of the cable is where the microphone is located with a slide that allows you to mute the microphone if so desired.
So how does SteelSeriesa compact headset sound? Quite excellent actually! The Guild Wars 2 Gaming fifa coins Headset as well as the Flux line in general is designed with 40mm drivers capable of an effective frequency response of 18 28000 Hz well outside of the range of human hearing. This allows the wearer to enjoy the best quality sound without it being limited by the capabilities of the driver, although the gamer’s experience will be entirely dependent on the quality of their soundcard and its capabilities. However, even with my laptop’s Standard High Definition Audio?, the lows were very deep without crackling at the bottom end, while the mids and highs were crisp and clear with all of the settings maxed allowing the player to enjoy all of the sights and sounds of Tyria in high quality audio which is an absolute necessity with a soundtrack so masterfully created as Jeremy Soule’s. Additional testing on my portable devices PlayStation Vita, Nintendo 3DS, and Nokia Lumia 800 mobile phone all produced similar results.
Another feature of the Guild Wars 2 Gaming cheap fifa coins Headset as well as the rest of the Flux line is the ability to use the second headset jack to connect another set of headphones, so a friend can share the auditory experience. With a second headset plugged in, you might notice a slight loss of volume, which is to be expected because of the additional load. However, your friend will have a significantly lower volume but not detrimentally so than you will. This might not be the case with two Flux headsets we were only had one set on hand, but the resulting volume between my Skullcandy headphones plugged into the GW2 set, and directly plugged into the machine was significant.
The microphone too sounds pretty good, although there are a couple of nags. As with most microphones that hang from a headset or earpiece, the Flux’s mic picks up a lot of noise from rubbing against your shirt collar or for guys that haven’t shaven in a couple of days scratching against your beard. Furthermore, the sensitivity of the microphone is tweaked pretty high to where if you’re just moving around or adjusting your cable, you’ll hear quite a bassy thump in your ears if you have mic monitoring enabled. The quality of the sound that it inputs into your PC, however, is quite exceptional. You just might have to adjust the mic sensitivity down to make sure you don’t drive everyone nuts while you squirm in your seat.
The Guild Wars 2 Gaming Headset by SteelSeries retails for $99.99, which puts it in the lower end of the spectrum of headsets with comparable features, making it an excellent buy for the audiophile that’s looking for gear on the go and a must have for the die hard Guild Wars fan. For someone who’s looking for a headset for a stationary setup like a PC, it is a little harder to sell considering that the Siberia V2 line is only $20 fifa 14 coins more. The quality of the headset overall, however, makes this an excellent choice for someone who doesn’t have the USB ports, or space in their pack available to carry a V2; and makes it an even better option for someone who doesn’t want to shell out $200 for a comparable Beats headset.
