      The best RGB headset hands down.

      I will start off by saying, outright, that compared to the Corsair Void and the Razer Kraken, the Artemis is the undisputed best of the three. I will go into this more later. I generally don't buy dedicated headsets; i much prefer the sound quality of high end headphones and generally switch between various headphones for listening to music. Bearing that in mind, I didn't like the clutter of using a clip-on mic ( Zalman ) with my headphones, and game sound and music monitoring are completely different beasts, so I decided to go the route of the single USB cable for convenience's sake. I generally avoid large purchases that I will likely regret, but this is not one of those cases. The G633 ( and by extension the 933) is one of the best headsets you can buy. It looks great, is easy to setup, and sounds fantastic. I would say even objectively, it has the best use of RGB lighting on a headset. Whereas the Void and the Kraken simply illuminate the company logo on a small area, the G633 lights up the logo on the side and a catchy strip on the side which, admittedly, gives it a sort of futuristic, "techy" look. While YOU won't see it very often, it's much nicer than the alternatives. As far as build quality goes, just about every piece is plastic, but everything is thick with a nice weight to it. The memory foam cushions are nice and soft, but take some time to break in ( about a week or so) before they become really comfortable. Oddly enough, one of the minute features I like on this headset is the inclusion of adjustment level markets on the headband so that you can match up the ear cups easily. As far as sound quality goes, I would compare these easily to about any entry level audiophile headphone; somewhere between the Brainwavz HM5 and the Audio-Technica M50X. One of the saving features is the built in equalizer, which you can use to make the sound as flat as bassy as needed. The "flat" setting is a little underwhelming, but the "bass" setting works for just about everything and is pretty much perfect for gaming. While I don't normally use the virtual surround sound, it does seem to work fairly well in most games and offers an acceptable surround sound immersion that you wouldn't normally get from a headset of this price. The mic quality, from what I'm told, is about what you'd expect from a higher end microphone. It seems to be somewhat clearer than the Zalman clip-on mic, but is MUCH MUCH higher quality than the Void ( I'd say the mic quality is the weakest feature of the Void ). There are only two problems I have with this headset and one isn't entirely the fault of the headset itself; rather Logitech and their software. The G633/G933 feature four buttons on the back of the left cup. The lower most is the mic toggle, the other three can be used for additional features or whatever macro you'd like to use them for. Logically, you can use these for the surround sound toggle, equalizer switch, and headphone mute. The problem is, all of the buttons feel very similar, so you have to remember which is what, and the mic is more easily muted by simply raising it back up. The Logitech Gaming software, while once lightweight and response, has become weighed down and laggy. I have a high end computer with an adequately OCed CPU and RAM to spare; but the software really likes to lag and crash unexpectedly. An update or two since I've gotten the headset has mostly fixed the crashes, but has not fixed the access time. Generally not important, but if you need to pull it up on the fly to fix or edit something, hope you don't have a split second emergency in whatever game you're playing.

      get the 2 year replacement plan for $10. It will pay for itself. Ok so these are some of the best I have tried. I have a larger then normal head size. Really, my cap in the Air Force had to be ordered as they did not keep it in stock. Any way these fit fine. Most headsets put more pressure at the top of the ear cup for me. With these I do not feel like I am wearing a vise. I wear these for hours no problem. The sound is great and I find I am actually lowering the volume over other headsets I have owned. The mic is very good. Everyone in chat, be it Team Speak or in game, says I sound clear and crisp. Over all the construction is sold. After 5 months of daily use there are no creaks or pops or other sounds when I put them on. and being on sell for under $100 makes them even more a must buy. So why do I say you will need the replacement plan if they are so good? Its the USB connected cable. While on one hand I understand why. So the head set can be used with a phone easily. I really wish there was a hard wired version of these. I have never unplugged the USB cable from the head set once I plugged it in the first time. However after 5 months of daily use it got to were anytime I turned my head or put any pressure on the cable the USB would disconnect. And at time this would cause the headset to completely shut down. Requiring an unplug at the computer to "reboot" it. I just got my second set today. Nice thing is that one has a 2 year replacement plan starting today. No charge. I hope this set last longer but if not no problem. So yes I do highly recommend these but only with the replacement plan.

      incredible headset

      Hello, if you want an amazing true 7.1 surround sound headset that provides bass and all around everything you could ever ask for. LOOK NO FARTHER! Logitech has actually out done themselves this time around. The looks are actually backed up by quality with these. It has led lighting on the headset with customization for colors. These are extremely light weight. Not a single thing feels cheap. The side panels on the headset are magnetic (so are astro A40 and A50 headsets). You get some amazing software off logitechs website for these that test the surround sound and allows you to change lighting. The mic is a hideaway mic that mutes when you lift it up and it even extends outward about ~2-3 inches. I bought these yesterday (10/8/2016) and I wore them for 4 hours straight out of the box to make sure i wasn't taking them back. I will not be taking them back lol. Best headset I have ever owned 10/10 would buy every time. I'm looking to buy the G933 model now. So, you've gotten this far. Let me convince you a bit as to why this is the headset for you. Do you own an Xbox one/PC/PS4? This works with all three. No adapter required. You have a dedicated switch on the headset for PC/USB and Xbone/PS4/3.5mm. Not sold? I tired my friends Astro A40s. I will pick this headset over that every time. The Artemis Spectrum is a tie in the Comfort area. Sound is relatively the same but new technology gives the logitech the edge. The G633 has better bass response over the A40. Better price for the headset. Personally, better looks as well. Hope this helps you decide. Please don't listen to what any negative BS there are on these.You will not regret your choice here.

      Where to start? Pros- -A little lighter then my G35 -A little more comfortable then my G35 - Mic works fine in TS3, CS:GO - multiple connection options Con's- - Software doesn't work like it should ( Check the Logitech forums). - There is some distortion coming from the low end, even at low volume. example Armored Warfare the count down clock tick distorts, CS:GO I also noticed some high and low end distortion. Never had this problem with my G35 headset. - EQ settings in The LGS software does not work. Yes you can adjust the EQ settings, BUT the sound does not change. - These feel really cheep. Every time I put them on I feel like something is going to SNAP Conclusion After reading up on G633, even with the negative reviews on Logitech's forums, I still bought these.....Shame on me. Most of the time I get lucky and its user error. I can safely say its not user error, But Logitech's error. The Logitech forums is bottomless pit of problems relating to the software. The Logitech Gaming Software 8.75.30 has been problematic for G930, G35, G933, G633. Thank GAWD it has not effected my G502 mouse or my Orion spark keyboard. SO, don't walk, RUN way from these until Logitech fixes all the problems that they have with the software. I will be returning these today, Sad cause I really wanted to like these. I am using Windows 7 64. Z97 motherboard with on board sound

      Microphone Issues

      Posted

      This headset has very good sound (audio), but I could not get the microphone to work on my XBOX One. The Mic did work on my PC and my Playstation 4, but the mic is subpar with occasional gittering and glitching. Not good for professional recording (live streaming, machinima, etc.). For this price, I expect a headset with a mic that works. The gitter and glitching of the mic was distracting to my fellow teammates while gaming. ----- I actually purchased two of these headsets (one for myself and the other for a friend to use at our LAN parties), and both headsets were exactly the same, so this is definitely an issue with Logitech... (I tried everything to get these mics to work. I mean everything...) So, I contacted Logitech, and they did not have a solution for me. I contacted Microsoft concerning the non-working mic issue, and they said that not all third party headsets are compatible with the XBOX One even if they say they are compatible right on the box (like this headset does). ----- Also, the audio only supports 7.1 on PC. NOT on the XBOX One and NOT on the PS4. Keep this in mind. ----- Story-in-short, I returned both of these headsets to Best Buy and exchanged them for a couple of Turtle Beach XO Seven Pros which have incredible stereo sound and one of the most professional sounding mics I've ever heard (mic can be compared to a Blue Yeti)! Of course, the XO Seven Pros are wired and are only compatible with the XBOX One, so I'm still forced to use a separate headset for the PS4/PC. Ugh... Hope this review helps.

      Not a good product

      Posted
      Darkzdragon

      There are plates on either side of the headset that are held on by magnets, the one on the right side had its magnet fall out due to the glue not being strong at all. My biggest complaint overall though is that the microphones absolutely suck. The dongle sounds like I'm super far away even when it's right near my face and the one on the headset only extends out to my cheek, not getting anywhere near my mouth, and sounds like absolute garbage. If you're trying to find a good headset for gaming, I recommend looking elsewhere for one with a better microphone. The only upsides to this headset is the fact that it is pretty comfy to wear for long durations. Though another downside in the manufacturing, the cushion on the top came out of its holder on the right side, the glue not keeping it stuck, so I had to use super glue to make it go back into place, thankfully that did not impact the comfort too much after the fix. Another huge downside, there is no mic monitoring whatsoever. I feel like i'm yelling half the time i'm trying to game because of this fact. For what I paid, I am highly disappointed in the product. I will be purchasing a new gaming headset come January or February when I have saved up enough money, for now I have no choice but to stick with this cruddy headset.

      Great headset, minor flaw

      Posted

      So I purchased this headset on sale and it was a wonderful price.. Rich sound, lovely surround sound, RGB is nice and smooth, the mice quality is comparable to a stand up microphone, but now you're wondering, "whats the flaw?" Well from the day I purchased this headset ive had one of the worst problems ever with it and its that the USB connection cord always seems to come unplugged no matter how tight you think its plugged in, the slightest swivel of the head and BAM your headset is unplugged and for some games where it doesn't automatically fix it, your stuck without sound till you can close the game and reconnect and when I'm using discord it causes me to disconnect and reconnect a couple times for my mic to continue working and its just a major pain because the cord is very long and not in any snag length at all and Ive even tried different cords to see if the Logitech cord wasnt fully manufactured correctly, but yeah I'm still having this problem... Ive tried contacting Logitech support multiple times and they just tell me its user error and that they cant replace the headset due to the problem which is unrealistic... I really wish there was a way I could downgrade to a different Logitech headset that doesn't have a detachable usb plug ...

      Awesome headset, needs better mic

      This headset is wonderful for PC use, though it is also marketed towards console use. However, the lapel mic located on the 3.5mm jack is not exactly suitable for communications unless you don’t mind your party hearing every single motion you make or choppy audio. The headset itself is quite comfortable and after tweaking the RGB is awesome to look at. I myself stream on Twitch.tv/IAmTheBigKat so I love letting my audience see my new headset. As well, there is a retractable microphone to use for communication when using the USB plug in as opposed to the 3.5mm. The sound is crisp and bass filled. Being able to do quick EQ swaps with the touch of a button is nice as well. Also having the ability to turn the surround sound on and off with a button is handy. There are also 2 macro buttons located on the headset and a convenient volume knob. The slider on top for PC or 3.5mm use is a good way of swapping the main audio input quickly as well. Overall this is a great headset and worth the cost. I would recommend these to anyone looking to play games that require a lot of listening as well as those who enjoy listening to music or watching movies/videos.
