The G433 stands is an excellent pick for just about anything you need a headset for. The design is lightweight yet durable, made with stainless steel and polycarbonate, and weighs just nine ounces. With both mesh and microfiber ear pad covers and a mesh pad on the headband, it's also comfortable to wear for long periods of time (which is especially important if you use a headset at work). Best of all, the design is low profile and doesn’t look like a gaming accessory, so it can easily be worn in the office.
The detachable boom mic also adds to this headset's versatility. Attach it to make hands-free calls or communicate with teammates in video games. There's also an in-line mic on the cable, so you still have microphone functionality even without the boom attachment. The headphones have a 20Hz-20kHz frequency response range and 40mm speaker drivers so your audio sound rich and clear. And, using the included USB sound card, the G433 offer 7.1-channel virtual surround sound with DTS Headphone:X.
The G433 comes with multiple connector cables that make it compatible with all major gaming consoles, PCs, and mobile devices.
If you want a Logitech headset that doesn’t cost a lot but still delivers solid performance, then the G430 is our pick. The design is pretty basic but still benefits from some of the design language seen in Logitech’s more premium headsets. Wide, mesh ear cups and a soft mesh headband make for a comfortable design. The most appealing feature is the USB-connect DAC, which can be used with computers to enable DTS Headphone:X or Dolby Headphone for digital surround sound, an unusual perk for this kind of budget headset.
The headset speaker drivers and the microphone offer frequency response ranges similar to some of our other top picks, so you still get quality sound. And, with support for Windows, Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One, the G430 is an option available to just about anyone.
For the lowest price option, you can get the Logitech G230, which has a similar design to our best budget pick. The ear cups can swivel to rest on your chest when you’re not using them, and the mesh ear cups and headband offer breathability and comfort. And, despite their budget price, they still offer large 40mm drivers with a frequency response range from 20Hz to 20KHz. They’re not as sensitive as some of the other options, but they’ll work with any device that uses split 3.5mm headphone and microphone jack. With a splitter, they can work with even more devices.
The microphone sits on an adjustable arm and has a unidirectional pickup pattern to hone in on your voice and filter out background sounds. It also offers the wide, 50Hz-20kHz frequency response range of many other microphones from Logitech. And while you are sacrificing some quality for the ultra-budget price, the G230 is a great option for those who want a decent gaming headset without spending too much.
If you want a headset that's free from wires, check out the Logitech G533. This headset also has a pretty unassuming design, so it's appropriate for non-gamers as well. Mesh on the ear cups and headband offer soft and breathable comfort for extended use.
The G533 headphones use Pro-G 40mm drivers for high-quality sound and a frequency response range of 20Hz to 20KHz. This set can also deliver 7.1 surround sound when connected to a PC using Logitech’s gaming software. The microphone offers a high-end experience with a 100Hz-20kHz frequency response range, much wider than much of the competition, and while the microphone isn’t detachable, it does fold up into a slot on the ear cup to hide away when not in use.
In terms of what you’re getting from the wireless, the G533 offers a 2.4GHz Bluetooth connection with 15-meter range and lag-free sound. Better still, the headset can run for up to 15 hours on a single charge.
Logitech has a premium wireless option in the G933. While we think it's a bit pricey for the features, it’s still a solid option for gamers who want a wireless headset with a bit of flair.
The G933 headset uses a 2.4GHz wired connection for a clear, fast, and long-range connection. On a charge, it can get 12 hours of battery life, or eight hours if the lights are enabled. The G933 features customizable RGB lighting, letting you choose from 16.8 million colors and a variety of animations and effects. With software customization, you can also set up custom controls for the G Keys on the headset. If the batteries are low, you also have the option to use a wired connection.
The G933 headset has 40mm drivers and offers a 20Hz-20kHz frequency response range. The microphone also offers a solid range of 100Hz-20kHz. And if you're transitioning from a console to a gaming PC, the USB mixer lets you set up inputs from multiple devices.
The Logitech G Pro gaming headset is a great pick for just about anyone. While its credentials are specifically targeted toward gaming, the design and features make the Logitech G Pro a nice headset for general use as well. It has a low-profile design that's durable and highly flexible for comfort. The wide ear cups fit comfortably over any size ears, and the leatherette helps block out external noise. Microsuede ear pads are also included.
The Logitech G Pro features Pro-G drivers with a crisp, clean sound and a frequency response range from 20Hz to 20kHz. It doesn't have built-in surround sound capabilities, but it does support Windows Sonic and Dolby Atmos from a connected computer. The detachable boom mic is great for gaming, with an adjustable arm for a comfortable fit and clear conversation.
Between the fit, the tame design, the specs, and the support for PC, PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and VR headsets, the Logitech G Pro is a great pick for gamers.
We can’t leave headsets from Logitech’s subsidiary Astro out of the mix. After all, these are top-notch gaming headsets that can go head to head with those under Logitech’s branding. The Astro A50 Wireless headset is a serious option for gamers, and if you have the budget, this is a truly premium pick. The A50 Wireless headset uses a 5GHz wireless connection for a low-latency connection with no loss of sound quality. With 15 hours of battery life, the A50 Wireless headset can last through even the longest game sessions. And the wireless dock also serves as a charging station for the headset, so you can keep it charging when not in use.
These are also open-backed headphones, so the soundstage will feel larger and more natural — this feature is even more appealing when combined with the A50's Dolby 7.1 surround sound. The headset also has a unidirectional noise-canceling microphone so you can chat with your friends in-game. A dial on the base station lets you adjust the audio mix between chat and game sound effects so you can always hear what you need.
If you want a premium headset but at a more mid-range price, the A40 TR headset is compatible with PC, Mac, Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch. The headset features large, padded ear cups that completely surround the ears for a comfortable fit and rich listening experience. The long boom mic is also detachable, so you have the option of removing it if you want to take these headphones on the go.
In terms of sound, you’re getting large, 40mm drivers with a frequency response range of 20Hz to 20kHz, and these are open-backed for a wider soundstage. (Backplates are included to convert them into closed headphones if you prefer.) For gamers that care about design, the headset comes in a variety of colors, and mod kits are available to change the look of the microphone, ear pads, back plates, and head cushion.
