The best Logitech gaming headsets
Founder in 1981 and pioneer of peripherals with the first thumb-operated trackball and the first laser mouse, Logitech has grown into one of the largest peripheral manufacturers in the world. They have since acquired a series of other industry leaders: Saitek, Astro Gaming, Blue Microphones and Streamlabs.
Logitech is one of the best headphone brands, and its lineup includes high-end options like the Pro X Wireless to budget alternatives like the G432. Buyers can also choose between wired and wireless options. We’ve put together a list of the best Logitech headsets considering their performance, features, and build quality.
Best Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset
The Logitech G Pro X Wireless is the company’s flagship wireless headset, designed to meet the rigors of professional gaming. As a wireless headset, no cables get in the way and it connects using 2.4GHz wireless frequency via USB dongle. Players can expect a range of around 49.22 feet (15 meters) and up to 20 hours of battery life.
For a high-end headset, the Pro X Wireless has a pretty subtle design. There is no bright light and it has a sleeker look with an all black look with silver circular accents on the ear cups. Fans can also choose the Shroud version which replaces the silver accents with alternatives with his name on them. There is soft faux leather padding around the steel headband and on the ear cups. Players who find the faux leather too hot for long gaming sessions can swap them out for the provided fabric alternatives. On-ear controls for volume, mute, and power can be found on the left ear cup, as is the detachable Blue-Voice compatible microphone.
Like most modern headsets, the Pro X Wireless has software settings. It is capable of producing virtual 7.1 surround sound through its 50 millimeter drivers, and users can also set various EQ settings and profiles using Logitech’s G Hub app.
The Pro X Wireless doesn’t come cheap, but it’s packed with features and comes with spare earbuds and a carrying bag. It’s one of the best choices for PC gamers, but console gamers will need to consider other options like the Pro X.
Best Logitech Wired Gaming Headset
The Logitech G Pro X is the wired version of the Pro X Wireless and has a similar design. Instead of connecting with a wireless dongle, the Pro X comes with cables for different devices. PC players can connect with a USB digital-to-analog converter (DAC), while console and mobile users can use the 3.5-millimeter cable. A splitter is also included for connection to separate 3.5 millimeter PC ports. Another difference between the two headsets is that the PRO X has in-line microphones built into the cables, so users don’t need the detachable alternative included in the box.
Most of the design cues of the Pro X match its wireless sibling, and it features the same all-black look with silver accents. The 50-millimeter drivers are also carried over, as is the detachable Blue Voice-compatible microphone. Logitech even includes the same accessories like extra earbuds and a carry bag.
The sound quality of the Pro X varies depending on the type of connection. Users can only access the G Hub through the USB DAC, and audio options are limited via the 3.5-millimeter cables.
One of the best things about the Pro X is its versatility. It can work on PCs, consoles and mobile devices thanks to all the cables it includes. It’s also considerably cheaper than the wireless version while still having the same sound and build quality.
Best Logitech gaming headset with RGB lighting
The Logitech G935 is a more affordable alternative to the Pro X Wireless and gives off a gamer vibe thanks to its chunky shape and RGB lighting. While some headsets exaggerate RGB lighting, the G935 only has a single stripe running down vertically along each cup and an illuminated Logitech logo on the side. That said, users won’t see it while they play, although this can be appreciated by streamers who want to stand out.
Thanks to its enormous size, the G935 manages to cram most of the controls on the left earcup. It houses the dual volume, mute and power buttons. There are even additional buttons for browsing EQ and lighting profiles. Logitech even included the retractable microphone and a nifty dongle compartment in the left ear cup.
Like the Pro X Wireless, the G935 connects to the PC via a 2.4 GHz wireless connection. It has a range of approximately 49 feet (15 meters) when used indoors and approximately 65 feet (20 meters) for use outdoors. The battery lasts about 12 hours, but drops to eight hours with the lights on.
Despite its slightly dated appearance, the G935 has a solid feature set. It offers virtual surround sound and wireless connectivity for much less than the Pro X Wireless. There is also vivid RGB lighting for users who like that sort of thing. One of the biggest drawbacks of the G935 is its bulky size which makes it difficult to transport and uncomfortable for some users.
Best Logitech gaming headset for young gamers
The Logitech G435 is available in a range of vibrant colors and is aimed at young gamers. It’s available in the mandatory black, and more adventurous shoppers can also choose between blue and raspberry, or off-white and lilac for added flair.
Another design element that makes the G435 more suitable for younger buyers is its small size. At just 6.4 x 6.7 x 2.8 inches, this is the smallest and lightest headset on this list. The two built-in microphones on the right ear cup add a bit of practicality, but can’t compete with boom mic rivals. Logitech markets the G435 as its “most durable headset yet,” and it’s made with a minimum of 22% recycled plastic by weight, and it comes in environmentally friendly packaging.
There are several wireless connectivity options on the G435 but no wired connection. Players can connect with a 2.4 GHz connection or via Bluetooth. The 2.4 GHz connection is ideal for gaming and the Bluetooth connection allows the headset to connect to cell phones and tablets. Buyers can expect the battery to last 18 hours, but the range isn’t great at just 10 meters.
While the G435 offers two wireless options and bright colors, it’s obvious that Logitech has taken cost-cutting measures to keep the price low. The G435 has small 40-millimeter drivers to match its size, and there’s no G HUB software compatibility. It’s still a viable entry point for young gamers getting their first gaming headset.
Best Budget Logitech Gaming Headset
Many gamers don’t need high-end features like wireless connectivity and just need an affordable headset to enjoy their games. Logitech’s G432 does the trick with a combination of low price and compatibility with most platforms.
The G432 makes it easy with a wired-only connection. Buyers can connect the headset directly to a PC with a 3.5 millimeter cable or through a USB DAC. While the 3.5-millimeter cable doesn’t offer software compatibility on PC, it does work with consoles like the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
Buyers can’t expect the most rugged design given such a low price tag. The G432 is made of matte black plastic with a metal band in the headband. Its only distinguishing features are the Logitech logos on the outer ear cups and the company’s signature blue color surrounding the ear cushions. The left ear cup houses the volume wheel and flip-up microphone.
Despite its affordability, the G432 still has 50-millimeter drivers instead of the 40-millimeter ones found in the G435. It also offers virtual 7.1 surround sound and EQ settings via the G Hub app if connected to a PC.
The G432 is one of the cheapest ways for buyers to get their hands on a Logitech headset. It may have flaws like a bland look, but it offers decent sound quality for a low price.
