    Pros Connections for almost any type of device Comfortable over the ear fit Bluetooth DAC for 7.1 surround on PC games Positional sound in PC games can even place sounds behind Overall balanced sound Sound still loud even when wired to smartphone Breathable fabric reduces sweating during long sessions Tension on head strong enough without being too tight Extra earpiece pads are softer Earpiece pads are washable Includes carrying bag Cons Limited instructions Folding doesn’t reduce bulk Separate bag for adapters doesn’t have a place in the main bag Fabric on installed earpiece pads could be smoother for longer listening Changing pads could be easier Cables should have integrated straps to allow better organization Default sound without EQ adjustment makes headphones sound weak Many people purchase headphones for separate uses. Not because they want separate headphones but rather headphones did not exist with connections to multiple devices. For most people, it would be great to have one set of headphones that is good enough for nearly any use. The Logitech G433 headphones attempt to the type of headphones that are affordable and adaptable so that you don’t have to spend a fortune on multiple headsets. The primary focus is on gaming but with all the connectors they easily suit other scenarios. Included in the box you will find 2 main cables. Both have the smaller stereo headset jacks which fit most smartphones, stereos, tablets, game consoles, and PCs. One cable has built in volume controls and a mic mute button best suited for gaming while the other includes a push to talk mic that uses the volume controls on the device, such as tablets and smartphones. For best sound on a PC there is an included USB DAC which allows 7.1 surround sound allow positional audio within games. If you can’t use the USB adapter and want sound to your PC and you have a separate jack for input, there is an adapter that splits input and output to separate jacks so you connect to your PC’s headphone and mic jacks using the same cable. A boom microphone is also included that plugs directly into the left earpiece for in game communications. The boom microphone is listed as having a pop filter. Although not tested, any improvements to microphones for in game are a welcomed edition. The earpieces and headband are listed as microfiber. Although comfortable, if you are expecting the installed earpads to be soft you will be disappointed. The material is soft enough to be useable for long periods but is has a rough texture. This at first might seem to be a bad thing but it does seem to solve one nagging issue that can happen with extended use of headphones, particularly in gaming, and that is sweat. The material makes up for some of this roughness by allowing them to breath preventing the annoying sweat buildup that seems to happen on some. Thankfully, if you can’t handle the texture there are softer earpads included in the box. The whole package comes with two carrying bags. One for the headphones and one for the adapters. They do the job well but a more foldable design for the headphones in the future would be appreciated. Strangely, there is no storage location for the accessories bag inside the main bag. You are left with the choice of either jamming it in with the headphones or carrying it separately. One bag with accessory pockets or at least a secondary pouch for the accessory bag would make carrying easier. Another small tweak that could go a long way would be integrated cable straps to allow neatly bundling cables to put in the bag when done. If the versatility has you interested, you might find sound quality sells the whole package. Being realistic, these headphones are not top end audiophile quality but they are well balanced for most uses with an overall good range. The primary focus is on gaming and when used with the included USB DAC the 7.1 surround sound does quite well. Sounds were easily recognized as coming from a certain direction. If someone was coming up from behind you, you would hear the sound behind you as you would expect. This makes games more immersive and hair raising when you didn’t expect anything to be behind you. Equalizer adjustments are dependent on the connected device but they work well for watching movies, listening to games, audiobooks, and of course gaming. Surprisingly, for such large headphones they can achieve high volume even when driven by the amplifier built into a smartphone. The overall audio range is good enough to allow crisp dialog while including enough bass to give some impact when needed. Most people will likely want to make at least some basic EQ adjustments as the default audio just doesn’t do the headphone justice. If you are a person who likes headphones with heavy bass these are not for you. For others who would want to have a single pair of headphones that can adapt to nearly any situation with good sound quality and comfortable extended listening for an affordable price, the Logitech G433 headphones just might be the perfect fit.

    Been a while since I got a set of wired gaming headphones and these pretty much suits every single of of my needs. This set of headphones/gaming mic with a set of items depending which platform you would like to use it for but more on that later. Logitech G433 7.1 Surround Sound Wireless headset with DTS X / PRO-G is something that if you want to get a mic for all of your gaming platforms this is it hands down. Presentation of the box is nice showing and telling you giving detail what the headphones can do. As for the headphones themselves I love the design. I ended up with the dark blue camo color headphones. The headphones are lightweight, like really light on on the head and fits very snug. Dark blue plastic feels sturdy enough around the headphones itself. inside the box comes an extra set of Ear mesh pads for replacement and also claim to be washable. The mesh material feels nice to hold and touch. Logitech did a good job in this regards. Inside the box, You get everything you need to plug the headphones to your gaming platform of choice. USB DAC with 3.5 mm for PC, Basic Console / PC mic cord with mute control, Mobile Cable for using with your phone...There is also a PC splitter are all inside as well. As person who own or at-lease tested most of these platforms I will tell you my experience with them all. Boom mic provided was pretty much the same across the board. It's a good mic. Every one of the members of the clan I am in could hear me clear with no problems and I'm sure if you are going to use for streaming with twitch everyone will hear you loud and clear. PC: This was the best experience with the headphones I had playing movies and games in 7.1 was a delight. USB DAC gave these headphones a boost in bass which these G455 are lacking without it. The drivers are the best to grace these headphones. Playing CS:GO / GTAV / Gears of War 4 / Forza I could hear every single gunshot and engine around me. These headphones might also be useful for VR as well. If you getting them of PC gaming you are golden with no issues at all. PS4 / Nintendo Switch / XBOne: Sound is downgraded to just stereo due to the fact that the DAC doesn't work for gaming consoles for obvious reasons. But the sound is great for what it is. While I have a gaming PC, family like to play on consoles so these headphones was mostly used for console time. While using it for hours the sweat/stain resistant fabric worked well. When using the G433 on the consoles the bass is awful in my opinion, it is just lacking. I really notice it when playing Killing Floor 2 on PS4 and a "BOOM" from a level 25 demolition rocket was not there. Disappointing. Still I can't fault these headphones since you are most likely buying these to use across every gaming device. The mute switch is well built into the cord and not loose so it seems to me these are built to last. Mobile: About the same as console as far as sound quality goes but at-lease they give you a mic cord so you can rock these like everyday headphones for music. Strange enough these headphones does a decent job of that as well. Played Soundcloud and Apple Music with an iPad and it sound great. Audiophiles most likely won't be pleased with these G433 though. Mids are clean but the bass is once again bad. Which when you look at the overall picture of what these headphones can do, I think its still a great thing. Logitech also throws in two carrying bags inside (One for the headphones itself and one for your cords. both the same color of the headphones themselves.) which is a nice bonus. I think G433 are awesome if you are looking for a jack of all trades for all of your gaming platforms at a fantastic price honestly. I am happy to own a set because I just want one set of headphones that work for every gaming device I got. These take care of that and I highly recommend theses to any gamer out there.

    Let me start by saying that I am a huge Logitech fan. I have owned so many Logitech products over the years that I could probably fill a Logitech museum. I have also been very impressed lately with the Logitech team and their pushing of the envelope both in their mainline products as well as forging new ones (their new Spotlight presenter device is phenomenal), but as the saying goes, if you don't fail every now and then, you aren't trying hard enough. Unfortunately, the G433 Gaming Headset is that failure, at least for me. I have a ton of headphones (gaming, general, and audiophile) and I was able to A/B compare these headphones with others from across that spectrum and they fell to every single one in each match up. The main headphones that I used to test against were some Turtle Beach x11s with the Earforce DSS system, some Sennheiser HD558s, and some Turtle Beach XO Fours. First let me let you know how I intended on using them. I wanted them as a nice set of headphones to use not only with PC games on my laptop but also on my Xbox One. These headphones are only 7.1 on Windows PCs and are just stereo on game systems or a Mac. Let's start with how they work as a PC gaming headphone. This one is easy, THEY DON'T. They work if you just plug them in to the headphone jack and use them as a stereo headset but if you try to use the USB dongle that allows the 7.1 surround sound, it will not work. I tried it out both on my brand new Samsung Notebook 9 Pro running Windows 10 as well as my work computer running Windows 7 (yeah I know, I've been yelling at the IT guys for a while now to come up to speed). Every time I tried to use the USB dongle with the associated Logitech Gaming Software that you need to enable the 7.1 settings, the sound system would completely freeze. I tried multiple different ways to make it work but could not find a way that did not cause the sound system to lock-up every time. Perhaps the software isn't ready for prime time and a future update will clear everything up, but as it stands right now, I am unable to use them to their full ability on my PC. Now for the Xbox. I have hooked these up directly into the new Xbox controller as well as into two different Surround Sound DACs (the Turtle Beach one as well as the Astro Mixamp Pro). In all cases the sound was inferior to that produced by either pair of Turtle Beach headphones or the Sennheisers plugged in the same way. I will say that there is a strong possibility that I have a defective plug with these headphones but that is not conclusive. I say this because I can get radically different sounds from these headphones just by rotating the plug in the socket. It would seem that, at least with these systems, it can not make a perfect connection every time. If that is the case, then this review may be biased by that fact. Without purchasing another pair, which I am not inclined to do at this point, I can't really tell what the problem is. They didn't seem to have this problem with the PCs but none of the other headphones had this problem on the Xbox. All I can say is that the headphones seem to range from either very boomy with all the detail lost in the bass or the sound is so weak that you have to strain to hear some elements of the game. Either way, it made for a not very fun gaming experience while using them. Where Logitech DID really succeed is in bringing a lot of value along with these headphones. For a $99 headphone, Logitech provides a nicely made, comfortable, and stylish set of headphones. The supplied accessories are also very nice. From the carry bag to the cable bag, to the extra set of velour earpads, to the nice cabling with fabric sheathing, everything is spot on. Speaking of those velour earpads, I would definitely swap those out first thing. The pair on the headphones when you get them use the same fabric as the rest of the headphone covering and can feel a bit rough (at least to my ears) but the other pads that are supplied are much softer but do retain a bit more heat so your ears might get a bit sweatier during game play. To wrap things up, are these bad headphones? No, but they don't live up to what they are supposed to or even what I normally expect from Logitech. In the near future with some improved software could they be much better, yes but probably only for the PC. But then again, I may have a faulty cable. Either way, if I am able to find a fix for any of these problems, I will update my review accordingly but right now the G433s just don't cut it.

    Good sound, short cable

    In my PC gaming time, I've owned some extremely high-end headsets but never a 7.1 headset, so I had some high hopes, and for the most part, this did not disappoint. First, the styling is a bit different than what you'd normally see on a headset, it's cloth covered, which leads me to wonder if it will pick up dirt, oils from hands, etc. a little more easily than a plastic one that could be wiped off. Second, despite being marketed as a 7.1 surround sound headset, it's a stereo headset with virtual 7.1 surround capabilities through the Logitech Gaming application. The 7.1 surround capabilities only function on a PC when using the Logitech USB dongle. It does an alright job at it, but I imagine a headset with separate drivers would do a better job. This headset does not do 7.1 surround when connected to a console. Third, the cable is comically short for being a wired PC headset. Interestingly they included a second one to use with phones, but the one they specifically have as a PC headset wire is not longer. The boom mic is detachable, which I have my reservations about having experienced other headsets with detachable boom mics where that is the single point of failure for the whole system, so I'm hoping this will not be a repeat performance. Admittedly, those were not logitech headsets. It comes with a nice cloth carry bag and a separate cloth carry bag for the wires, I imagine they have it in mind people will take this with them when they go console gaming. The sound itself is actually quite good. I get more bass out of this headset than most that I've experienced with the exception of the super-high-end. The logitech gaming application has a 7.1 surround demo which sounds cool and displays what the headset's virtual surround can do for the most part, the bass portion of the demo left me wonder if my face was vibrating. As for outside of that, I did experience the surround in some games if I was paying attention, but it didn't really stand out. Bottom line, if you want a cool looking stereo headset with virtual surround capabilities, that sounds good and is reasonably comfortable to wear, then this is up your alley. It does a good job at what it does, without being terribly stellar.

    A Definite Improvement

    The Logitech G433's are a definite improvement over the G430's. Build quality seems to be improved from the last generation. They are lightweight and flexible, but do not feel cheap or flimsy. They cloth texture on the outside is unique and stylish. Although it is purportedly stain resistant, I'm not sure what I will do when they get dirty. The overall design is simple and the headset looks fantastic. They are initially comfortable, however, I found myself replacing the fabric ear cups after 20 minutes because they were too abrasive against my skin. I'm very happy that Logitech includes a set of microfiber ear cups, that made the headset much more comfortable. However, they don't breathe very well so my ears got a bit sweaty after long gaming sessions. The headband seems a bit tight at first, but time will tell if the tension gets better. I also really like the modular cables, headset and microphone can be unplugged for transport. These are comfortable for long gaming sessions. Sound quality is very nicely balanced. High, mids and lows are heard clearly. Bass won't blow out your eardrums, but give enough presence. Since this is a gaming headset, the 7.1 surround is on point. Playing FPS's or games that rely on directional audio is where this headset really shines. The microphone is an improvement from the previous generation. While chatting with friends in Discord, they immediately noticed an improvement in my audio quality. But I would not use this mic solely for audio recording. Since the microphone is detachable, it allows this headset to be worn casually for music. The USB adapter allows you to achieve 7.1 surround sound on a PC. Otherwise the various cables allow you to connect to phones, tablets, Xbox, PS4 or even PC to get normal stereo. I like the accessories. The additional cables have braided jackets and have a nice feel to them. They all tuck nicely into a zippered cord pouch and they can be added with the headset into a larger zippered pouch for transport. I'm thankful for the extra earpads. The original earpads were abrasive enough that micro-movements from turning my head scratched my skin. The Logitech G433's are a little pricey for the performance. Since Kingston HyperX Cloud II's have fallen under $99, I would still choose them over the G433's. The microphone boom isn't as flexible as I'd like it to be. The microphone picks up my voice and plays it through my headset. The closer I have the mic to my face, the louder the noise gets. I'm not fond of this, but others may like it. Overall, a nice headset. I would have no problems recommending it to a friend over the previous generation.

    Great gaming headphones

    When I first unboxed the Logitech G433 headphones, they looked nice with the blue camo coloring, but the feel of the earcups made me think that they might be cheaply made. The headphones come equipped with a pair of cloth covered earcups, but those can be swapped out for an included set covered in a micro-fiber type material. Although both sets feel a bit flimsy, this is to reduce the overall weight of the headphones and to keep your head cool for long gaming sessions. The headband is fully adjustable and the earcups rotate, so combined with the light-weight earcups, the headphones can be worn for hours with no real issues... even if you wear glasses. Connecting the headphones to my laptop was fairly simple: attaching the removable boom mic (which is a nice feature for traveling) and setting up the USB cabling took only a few minutes. The headphones can also be connected through the headphone/mic jacks, but to get the 7.1 surround sound you need to use USB. There's also a cable for use with a mobile device, but I haven't tried that since I don't use a headset with my phone when I'm at my house. I also installed the Logitech software which allows you to fine tune the surround settings to your own taste. The software also allows you to control any other Logitech devices (mice, keyboards, etc) from one location, which is nice. To start, I listened to some music and watched a few videos, and although the sound from the headphones was good, it lacked a bit of clarity at times when compared to some of the other headphones I have that are marketed primarily for those purposes. Don't get me wrong, these headphones sound good when listening to music, but when I used them for gaming, it was clear that was their niche; the sound in every game I've tried so far is great. Even though the earcups allow a bit more outside noise in, the sound that's delivered more than makes up for it. The mic is also crystal clear according to others in my Teamspeak channels. As of now, I'm not using any of my other headphones for gaming. Overall, I'm extremely pleased with these headphones. They're light, comfortable, keep my head much cooler than my other headphones, and the sound when gaming is much better than any other headphones I have. If you're looking for a moderately priced set of gaming headphones, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these.

    Amazing Gaming Headset. Value for Money

    Logitech - G433 Wired 7.1 Gaming Headset is must have accessory for gaming and general use. It is very light and comfortable to use, 7.1 surround sound which is perfect for gaming. The ear cups have a cloth-like exterior to match the grille cloth. The right ear cup holds 3.5mm connections for both the audio cable and the removable boom mic, a flexible rubber arm that clicks securely into place. The headset comes with the aforementioned two pairs of ear pads and detachable boom mic, plus two cables, a cloth carrying bag, and a 7.1-channel USB sound card. The PC cable is 6.5 feet long and wrapped in cloth, features an inline remote with volume wheel and mic mute switch. There is another 5 feet cable included for phone. The mobile cable is plain rubber and features an inline mic with a single play/pause button. The carrying case is a soft, zip-up pouch that comfortably holds the headset with the ear cups folded flat. It also has lot of room for both cables and the extra ear pads. The included 7.1-channel USB sound card lets G433 simulate surround sound with audio processing and mixing between the headset's stereo drivers. Surround sound is great for all games and Mic quality is outstanding. The Logitech G433 is a very flexible wired gaming headset that comes with a ton of accessories which include two cables, two sets of ear pads, a carrying case, and a USB sound card enabling simulated surround all add up to a very good deal for $100.

    Good quality sound and construction

    This new headset from Logitech is attractive, well built, comfortable for long gaming sessions, and offers high quality sound. The headset comes packaged with a really nice carrying bag, multiple connecting cables to fit consoles and phones, and a USB device that provides a high quality DAC for simulated positional audio on PCs. The set also includes a detachable boom mic for multiplayer chat. Finally, there is a spare set of padded ear cups which is a nice touch. I tested the G433 on a Windows 10 PC and an XBox One and will cover each in turn. The XBox One connection is made via the Xbox controller with attached headset adapter. Although the sparse documentation suggests that the headset supports only stereo sound on Xbox, recent XBox software updates allow you to enable Windows Sonic for Headphones to provide software simulated surround sound. I found the Xbox experience to be at least as good as the official MS headset, probably better sounding and certainly more comfortable over the long haul. On PC, I installed the included USB DAC. Windows 10 identified the device correctly and installed drivers automatically and the set worked just fine. Although I didn't see this in the directions, Logitech also has "Logitech Gaming Software" which according to the G433 product page on their website must be installed in order to activate the 7.1 effect via the USB DAC. I tried the set with and without the Logitech software, and the Logitech drivers definitely do make a difference. My comments about quality are based on usage with the software installed. On the PC, the USB DAC provided subjectively high quality sound. While I didn't try to do formal tests of distortion or other metrics, the setup sounded great to my ears with no discernible background hiss and very clear, smooth audio rendering. I tested the positional audio in multiple games and the effect worked quite well for me. I could definitely tell the direction from which in-game voices and ambient sounds were coming. In Far Cry 4 the effect was especially pronounced and I could clearly hear the sound moving among the 7 potential positions. That said, there are also some occasional processing artifacts related to the Logitech software, none of which I heard without those drivers installed. The primary one I noticed is that some sounds, especially voices, occasionally had an over-processed sound and/or echo to them. It sounded a bit like they were in a tunnel even though the game environment may have been out in the open. I suspect the drivers will get updated with time. Overall, I really like these headphones. The quality of sound and construction is great, they open weave fabric makes them cool to wear, and they come with a solid range of accessories that were clearly made with gamers in mind. Even the connecting audio cable is nicely made with a woven fabric cable cover that should resist kinking and fraying. The occasional processing artifacts in the software keep this set from earning a 5-star rating, but I think this will improve with time and the set is still enjoyable to use even with this minor issue. If you enjoy PC gaming, this is a great choice. If you want a great PC 7.1 headset that also handles console play, this is a slam dunk.
