WORKS GREAT FOR PLAYSTATION 4!!!
Posted by: Projectchaos from: Los Angeles, CA on
I was immediately concerned when I bought this headset because the girl at the store said that the mic and headphone were in the same cord. I was planning on hooking it up to the PS4 controller like the headset that came with the PS4 system. I was about to pack it up and return it and then I took a shot and hooked up the 2 cords to the USB and then stuck it in the front of the PS4 and was like "what the heck maybe it will work" and it works perfectly! Furthermore, it hooks up plug and play with the PS4 and it doesn't put strain on the batery of the controller running directly into the system. VERY happy with this purchase they look amazing as well and like I said they are probably the most comfortable feeling on the ears I've ever felt on a gaming headset (especially for under 100 bucks) Great buy, I guess you could say it's the "Best" buy? rofl corny puns aside, I highly recommend this product.

Comfort and quality
Posted by: SOLIDAge from: Baltimore on
I tried these at PAX East 2013 and have been waiting for their release since April. I use headsets all day long and when I get home I want to put on a comforable pair of 7.1 surround speakers and just play video games. These deliver! I can wear them for hours at a time with no issue (old logitech's were made from plastic ear cups and hurt after an hour) My ONLY observation is a pair of Turtle Beachs I use at work are much louder. Loud doesn't mean more quality, but some people might want that. The Logitech G430 blow my work headset out of the water when it comes to audio quality and so far the surround works great in Defiance, Warface, Neverwinter, SMITE, League, and Guild Wars 2

Perfect for long hours of gaming
Posted by: RussianTux from: California on
As a 14 year old gamer, I've had this headset for about half a year now, and it's still doing good to this day. Lets start with the box. It made a good impression on first glance, with the fancy x-ray of half of the headset. Inside the box is the headset, manual, and USB Audio Card. To start using it was very easy. Just plug it in to your audio ports, or if you want the 7.1 surround, use the USB audio card. The software is... not bad. It crashes sometimes on Windows 8 x64 Bit. Without the software running, you can NOT use the 7.1 surround sound. The UI for the software is good enough for beginners like me. Now to the headset itself. It feels quite nice, and it doesn't feel like bricks on your head when you're using for long hours. The pads are like memory foam (Excuse my english, it an't good, since I speak russian) and they are covered with a mesh that feels nice. The mesh makes it a breathable headset, so not a lot of sweat will build up. The pads are removable so they are easy to wash. The cable is VERY long, though this could get annoying at times. The sound quality is nice since it has 7.1 surround on it. Mic quality is pretty good since I use it for my YouTube videos, though I plan on using a different mic soon. Overall this headset is very good for long hours of gaming, its 7.1 surround sound, and how good it feels on your head.

Great product for the money
Posted by: Homer from: Dumfries, Va on
For a little over a year I had been using a Turtle Beach X12 headset, until one day my dog messed up the microhpone cord and I could no longer use my mic to communicate when I was talking to my friends, gaming, etc. I decided to head to BestBuy to buy a replacement pair when I decided to look at some other options. I looked for awhile and was about to buy the X12 when I saw the G430 on display. I put it on and listened for a few moments until I heard some loud yelling behind me (it was playing a Borderlands 2 sound demo). I jumped and turned because I thought somebody in the store was actually yelling at me. As soon as I realized it was just the headphones, I made the decision that I was buying the G430. Everything works well and is comfortable. My friends never have any problems hearing me through the mic, and I never have problems hearing anything through the headset. I love the surround sound, on these, it adds a new layer to gaming (especially with atmospheric or horror games) and it has given me the advantage many times when playing games online (such as Battlefield). I also find them comfortable enough to not have any issues while wearing for long stretches of time when I'm talking to my friends, which is a nice contrast to the X12 which would give me a headache after awhile. I personally don't have any complaints about the product, it always works 100% and I couldn't be happier with it.

Seeing a 7.1 surround-sound headset for the price made me skeptical of the quality, but it has proved me wrong. It's very comfortable, and it's very easy to switch from 7.1 surround to stereo if so desired. Microphone works very well too.

High Quality Sound for price
Posted by: JCFrazier from: Hurricane, WV on
I had purchased the Razer Tiamat 2.2 headset, and was happy with the bass, but the sound seemed right on my ears (if that makes any sense!). The set fit too snug on my head and made my ears hot. I had used the Carcharias from Razer as well, and they were very comfortable, but lacked the surround.
This is easily the most comfortable headset I've ever used, with easily the best fidelity. The cloth ear covers allow for extended use with low heat buildup. The sound is very spacious and the separation of low frequency from high frequency is excellent.
The addition of 3.5mm jacks allows me to plug into my X-Fi soundcard for extra volume, as the USB adapter sound output is lower in volume for music than I would like. The volume in gaming is spot on, and the 7.1 surround is very nice. The LFE on 7.1 is fantastic!
The fella who says these don't work with voip is dead wrong - he's got a USB problem.
I will be buying another pair for my son - these are mine!

Great for what you pay.

This headset is everything I could ask for, it does feel a little light to me but I also had to replace an old-school Plantronics gaming headset that weighed a ton on my head. The ear cushions are super comfy and I spent 6 hours almost straight on TF2 the other night and had no issues. It surrounds my ears instead of sitting on top of them, everyone says my microphone is crystal clear and have no issues with static that my Plantronics sometimes had, which required a restart. The blue is a great color, and the padding on the top of the head is top notch as well. I have not tried the USB adapter but I really don't feel the need with 3.5mm jacks. All in all Logitech has delivered an amazing product once again and I would recommend these headphones to anyone looking for a new pair!

I just bought these because my Turtle Beach's gave out on me. Anyways I've been wearing them for over 5 hours playing Battlefield 3 and I don't even know that they are there. They fit on my head and ears very nicely and are not tight at all. The sound quality on them is great. I'm running them in 7.1 threw my sound card and WOW can you hear everything very clearly. The mic also sounds very good. I always have a fan pointed at me when I play and you don't hear any wind noise threw it which is great. I do not use the USB sound card it came with because I have a ASUS sound card and I found the sound was a little better threw it due to the fact I can really fine tune with software but the USB card it comes with is still pretty good.
I would have to say my only complaint is the blue cord. It looks kind of goofy but I really don't care. Also the cord is very long and for some it could be annoying with getting caught up in your computer chair and run over. My simple fix was to run the cord threw the same hole on my desk that my keyboard cord goes threw. Don't let the cord discourage you from buying this headset because it is an amazing headset and well worth the money.

Great gaming headset
Posted by: orijinal from: Menifee, CA on
I bought this headset primarily for gaming. The simulated 7.1 surround sound is great and works well with FPS games. The microphone is clear, just be sure to bend it toward your mouth when using it.
