When we make these lists, we make sure we pick only the greatest headsets that deserve a “best” mantle. This isn’t always an easy job and often requires hours of product research, in-house testing, and consuming as many reviews as possible to get a good idea of what each product brings.
Not everybody knows what to look for in a gaming headset. We know that it can be a confusing process which is why we try to cut down on the more technical speech in our reviews. If you ever need more information on a product, it’s always best to check the official manufacturer’s website.
A huge part of the process when making these recommendations is the testing process. This is where we take a deeper dive into the products that have made our list and see what makes them so special.
We also need to look at what makes a product stand out against the competition in the field. In the case of headsets, we tend to look at comfort, sound quality, and functionality as our primary focuses. Other things that are important to take into account are the build quality, microphone, and, of course, the price of the headset in question. There will be more on these “things to consider” a little later on that will give you an idea of what to look for.
Once we have done this we can start to write our reviews and craft our buyer’s guide to help our users determine which headset is the best fit.
What Budget Should I Set For A Logitech Gaming Headset?
The first thing to consider when shopping around for a brand new headset is the price and budget you set for yourself. While it is true you can pick up a budget headset, you will be missing out on a few features. That being said, unless you have very specific needs and an endless budget, there’s probably no need to pay a small fortune for a gaming headset.
The best practice is to have a budget range in mind and then look into exactly what features you want on your headset. This will help you narrow down your search to only a select few headsets. Picking a brand name such as Logitech is also a great way to further narrow down your search.
To give you some examples, a low-end headset will set you back around $40-$80 and will net you a perfectly good unit that is suitable for games. If you want a greater level of sound quality and features, you could be looking at spending $100 upwards to get what you want. Most of the headsets we cover today are around the mid-high price range as these are generally the best options in Logitech’s lineup.
The next thing to look at is the sound quality. Again, this will be closely tied to the budget you set yourself. If you can afford to splash out, you could get a headset with some very impressive sound quality. However, every headset will sound slightly different and some will be technically better than others.
There’s also personal preference and usage to take into account. Some people want bass-heavy headphones, others want good all-rounders.
One thing to look out for, particularly for gaming headsets, is surround sound. This can be really useful if you’re playing competitive or fighting games where you need to be able to clearly hear everything that’s going on around you so you can react quickly enough. This also helps to create a more immersive experience while you’re in the game.
If you’re planning to also use your headset for watching movies or listening to music, then sound quality will be vital to creating a good experience. In this case, you’ll want to check out headphones that are highly rated for their premium sound quality.
Once you’ve taken the price and sound quality into consideration, the next thing to think about is the comfort of the headset. After all, if you’re planning on using the headset for long gaming sessions, you’ll want to ensure that it’s comfortable to wear for hours on end.
All headsets will offer different levels of comfort, with different types of padding and materials. Headsets with thick padding may be comfortable, but you’ll also need to consider whether they will end up feeling too hot after a while. Ear cups with leather material are great for durability but you can end up feeling too hot than you would if you had a headset with mesh fabric instead.
Build quality is another thing to look at. Look at the weight of the materials used because if you’ve got a solid and durable headset that feels too heavy to wear, it could get uncomfortable after a while.
Last but not least, other things to consider include extra features. These include wireless technology which is handy if you’d rather avoid the trailing wires, and even RGB lighting or bright colors if you want something a bit fancy.
On some of the high-end headsets, you’ll even get features such as noise-canceling to help your immersion in a game.
Another important feature to look at is the microphone. We haven’t mentioned microphones much in this post but it’s still an important part of a headset, particularly if you’re playing co-op games. With microphones, it’s a good idea to look at the sound quality and also whether they are detectable. Having a detachable microphone is handy if you’re planning to use the headset for listening to music or even just wearing it in a public place.
The Best Logitech Gaming Headset
We’re going to start off today’s list with a headset that doesn’t pull any punches when it comes to sound quality. Of course, this is exactly what you’re looking for in a gaming headset and can make all the difference during gameplay. The 7.1 surround sound will also transform the way you watch movies and listen to music too which is great for those who really want to get their money worth.
This isn’t the cheapest headset out there but you’ll be getting a very well made one for your money. There’s plenty of adjustability in the earcups and headband and the fabric material feels really nice on the ears. While the looks may seem too simplistic for some, this is a great headset for those who might want to use it for more than just gaming.
One downside of this headset is the fact that it isn’t wireless, while this may disappoint some, there is a generous amount of cable length on offer here. You will however get a great microphone with a micro-pop filter that holds up pretty well during gameplay. This microphone is also detachable if needed which is another positive for those who’d like to use this headset while they are out and about as well as gaming.
If you’d prefer to leave all those wires behind, opting for a wireless headset with a great amount of battery life is a perfect way to declutter your gaming setup. The Logitech G935 Wireless headset is perfect for this and is definitely marketed towards the gaming crowd.
While the design may start to be showing its age a little bit by now, that doesn’t mean it’s a bad looking headset. The 2.4 GHz wireless connection allows you to game for up to 12 hours with no lights and 8 hours fully lit. Yes, that’s right, this headset also has lights! These can be customized in any way you wish and can even be synced to other Logitech peripherals. Although you won’t be able to see these lights when playing, you’ll certainly look great to anyone sitting behind you.
There is also a set of customizable G-Keys on the side of the headset that you can map to macros of your choice. This sounds great and is definitely a bit of extra functionality, but finding these buttons in the heat of battle is going to be tricky and we suspect you’d prefer to just use the ones on your gaming keyboard or mouse anyway.
This is a well built, comfortable headset though, there’s no denying that. If you’re looking for a do-it-all wireless headset and don’t want to spend hundreds, the G935 is a superb fit.
We have another wireless headset here for those who hate dealing with wires all over the place. The Logitech G533 headset offers great battery life and an impressive wireless range which gives you a lot more flexibility in your game station setup.
With noise-canceling technology and 7.1 surround sound, this is a great headset with some must-have features for anyone serious about their gaming tech. In terms of audio quality, this is a great bit of kit with good overall balance, albeit, it is a bit weaker in the bass department.
Where it suffers is through audio clarity. Sometimes this headset leaves audio a bit muddy at times, which is something to take into account if you’ll be using this headset for music as well. It’s definitely worth spending some time with Logitech’s software to alter these settings.
Overall, the headset is pretty comfortable but the padding isn’t the best we’ve seen. It could end up getting a little uncomfortable during longer gaming sessions, especially due to its weight.
The G533 is a great all-round headset with some great audio quality, a solid microphone, and good design that will look and perform well in any gaming setup.
The Logitech G Pro X Gaming headset is a good all-rounder which will set you back around $100. It’s built with PC gaming in mind but it’s also great for console gamers. However, one thing to consider is that console users do miss out, as the G Hub software which is only available on PC. This means console users won’t get a chance to play around with the surround sound or other settings. If you are a PC gamer though, this software is great to use and offers plenty of customization options.
This headset is built to last, with a solid design and high-quality build materials. The earcups are made from thick cushioning which makes them comfortable to wear for hours on end.
In terms of audio, this headset produces a great, clear sound and the inclusion of a good microphone makes co-op gaming all the more enjoyable. Overall, the sound quality is great when gaming and also offers surround sound which makes action games a joy to play. The microphone does suffer a little bit of distortion due to the de-emphasis of the bass range. However, the Blue Voice app can help to solve a lot of these issues.
