I am a fan of the G-series products that are coming from Logitech lately. Products evolved from PC gamers that have useful features, not just marketers try to sell stuff. I currently use their G910 keyboard and G502 mouse, and couldn’t be happier. But I would be remiss to not mention their G-series over the ear closed headset. I have had the G930 wireless headset for over 4 years and prefer the closed ear for better sound range and isolation than open ear. It can be be wireless or wired depending if you plug it in. It has a soft rubberized texture with generous top and side padding. By adjusting the side length to tighten the grip on your head, I have never had my headset fall off when it is adjusted correctly. My only complaint was after 3.5 years the battery was not holding a charge well. But after asking Logitech customer service for a “Battery with Screwdriver for the Wireless Gaming Headset G930″…I was able to get it for just $5. With the new replacement battery, everything functions like new again.

The mic is clear; when talking to people on VoIP apps like TeamSpeak, Skype, etc. many have commented I sound like I speaking from a landline.

The G930 has exceptional 7.1 directional surround sound with just a click of a button…great for game and movie immersion. I will usually click off surround when listening to music for a cleaner range. The mic is clear; when talking to people on VoIP apps like TeamSpeak, Skype, etc. many have commented I sound like I speaking from a landline. The G-series headsets also have additional G-Keys for customizing key assignments. I think it is best to assign in-game voice related keys on the headset, makes more sense than adding game keys to the headset. One of my favorite features, as on the G910 keyboard, is the rolling volume control. The noise cancelling mic turns off when flipped up and shows a red light to verify it is off, and turns on when flipped down. I love my G930. If you really want to look nerdy, place a Velcro strip on the top of the headset and add TrackIR sensors.

Now there is the updated G933 version. Again wireless/wired and with even more padding. First thing I noticed is the full spectrum RGB lighting. Looks cool. A big plus for me was the easy access side panels for battery and wireless dongle. They moved the G-Keys and volume roller to the side. Cleaner design with the hidden foldaway mic. The audio drivers are a step up, and many more options in the LGS software than with my G930. You can mix in multiple sounds sources, very cool if you want to also pipe in VoIP and Tunes. They have made this headset more universal, meaning you can also use it with your mobile devices, game consoles and home stereo. One headset to rule them all. The have also extended the play time a couple hours. Despite the upgraded features, the high retail price takes away from the overall value. But I included a refurbished link below that will make it a much better deal.
