    High-Fidelity Sound in a Sleek Package

    Connecting Logitech’s G Pro Wired Surround Sound Gaming Headset to my computer was blissfully analog. With just a pair of 3.5mm audio connectors, the experience hearkened back to hooking up my first set of professional-grade headphones many years ago, where packaging and documentation was minimal, but there was clearly little time or budget spent anywhere outside of designing a pair of headphones for pure audio reproduction. The G Pro’s almost-artistic spec sheet on the back of the box exhumes Logitech’s confidence, which would be seen as arrogant if the cans couldn’t deliver. I was not disappointed. Logitech’s offering brings clear, crisp sound on par with entry level studio monitors and looks good doing it while staying firm yet comfortable on the head. One small annoyance detracts from a nearly perfect experience, but the target market for this headset will likely find nothing amiss here. - Design and Comfort Unlike Logitech’s other gaming-oriented headsets, the G Pro takes a simple approach and features a minimalistic design with high-quality materials throughout. The plastics, leathers, padding, and aluminum frame all have a premium feel. The end result is a lightweight headset that feels remarkably robust compared to their other entries in the lineup. There is no flex, play, or rattle to speak of here. The heavy duty braided cable, gold-plated connectors, and beefed up wire termination points are all welcome touches that should increase its lifespan as well. Inline controls can clip to a shirt to stay readily at-hand, and the removable microphone allows the headset to become a pair of headphones as desired. The trade-off from a durable design is that the headphones come across as stiff, which yields a clamping force on the head higher than anticipated, even when adjusted to be as loose as possible. I have a large head and while the grip was by no means uncomfortable, it took a week of regular use for the pads to soften up and become enjoyable for long game sessions. The headset does not shift or slide around on the head, remaining put even during heated moments in VR games. - Sound Quality Using the headset for the first time let me hear where Logitech spent most of its R&D budget. I was seriously impressed with the cans to the point where I would argue they’re within striking distance of studio monitors. Bass is very clear and distortion-free even at super low frequencies, which many mass-market headphones at this price point struggle to reproduce accurately, if they can at all. A mostly-flat response curve through the middle and high frequency ranges translate to an excellent listening experience with crisp vocals and sharp high notes. What makes the sound quality particularly impressive is that the headphones have an impedance of 32 ohms, making them suitable for use in phones, tablets, and game systems and controllers (for those unaware, higher impedance = more electrical “resistance” in the headphones, meaning more power is needed to make them loud. Earbuds are very low resistance but tend to have poor sound quality; professional recording headphones are very high resistance). They will get moderately loud sound from most devices, but the output from a computer or stereo are ideal. Regardless, the headphones reap a slight benefit in sound quality using an external, powered DAC + amplifier, but I would not say one is required by any means. Sound isolation from the earpads is adequate. The firm grip on the head is needed to provide the effect, and I did notice a moderate reduction in background noise that made listening easier. The hum of an air conditioner or PC will still make its way to your ears (they aren’t active noise-cancelling), but once audio starts playing it’s easy to focus. The only issue I ran into with sound was that the microphone is exceptionally quiet. The included wind filter does a good job isolating pops and low ambient noise, and I do wonder if this was the culprit for needing to compensate with a huge microphone offset in Windows. Even with the artificial volume boost, voice quality was very good, and the flexible neck of the microphone allows for quick de facto volume adjustments to push the pickup further or closer to your face if your teammates complain. - Convenience Inline controls are about a foot and a half down the headset cord and are easy to access. The volume slider is firm and won’t change if it brushes up against your shirt or another surface (a problem I ran into with older Logitech sets). I did find that the microphone mute/unmute switch was stiff and difficult to actuate single-handed, but was workable once you got used to it. The only gripe I have is one that likely won’t bother audiophiles nor anyone in the headset’s “pro-gamer” target market, but I was personally disappointed by the lack of a USB adapter in the kit. 3.5mm headphone and microphone connectors are the only connectivity options offered (a 2-in-1 cable is included for single-jack laptops), making a sound device or output of some sort a requirement to use these. A USB adapter would have included a DAC and thus likely reduced the sound quality, so I can understand why Logitech chose to omit, but the extra option would’ve added tremendous convenience for casual users seeking high-quality sound. - Bottom Line This is a fantastic headset all around. Though I have several sets of high-end headphones at my disposal, I found myself pulling the microphone out and simply using the Logitech G Pro headset whenever convenient. Sound reproduction is much closer to studio monitor quality than headsets in this price category, and the ability to use these without a dedicated amp made them far more usable across all my devices. The firm grip and lack of a USB adapter don’t materially detract from the experience, and thus I highly recommend these for anyone looking for quality sound for their PC, regardless of their use case.

    The Logitech Pro headset is a no-frills headset focused on sound quality and long wear comfort. Suitable for PC or console gaming, the headset provides excellent sound quality with minimal distortion, even during heavy action. The headset comes with a long 6.5’ (2m) cable with an in-line volume wheel and mute slide toggle. The cable is an extremely high quality braided jacket type that is very flexible and should last for a lot of travel and use. It also comes with a Y cable if you need to break out the cable for a microphone input. For my use I don’t need a cable this long, when using it off of an Xbox controller for example the cable is very, very long. It would have been nice to have a cable wrap or even Velcro to manage the cable, sadly all that is included is a twist tie. I put mine in a cable turtle and that keeps it nicely under control. The rest of the box includes the detachable boom mic and a set of micro suede ear cups if the leatherette ones aren’t to your liking. The mic is not a flip up to mute type, you have to use the slider toggle on the line or a software control to mute. As this is an unpowered headset, some features from powered headsets will need to be done with apps or your console. The volume wheel controls all of the audio coming into the headset, so you will need to manage game to chat ratios and mic monitor using your PC or console. Also, there is no active noise cancellation with this headset. On the positive side the lack of a battery makes the headset light and it is always ready to go. It does a good job of sound isolation without full active noise cancellation. The build quality feels solid, with a soft touch finish on the ear cups, deep memory foam ear cups, a band that is steel and easy to adjust, and a pretty strong clamp to the head band. I am glad the ear cups are deep – with the clamping strength it would be uncomfortable with thin pads, but as it is I found it to be very comfortable to wear this headset for as long as I wanted to keep playing. For my testing on the PC, I did a mix of music and games, and the headset performed well at both tasks. Music was well balanced and games were clear and important sounds were easy to pick up on. I also tested this headset on an Xbox One using the headphone jack on the controller. This also worked well, with some games that are known for positional audio such as Overwatch really sounding great using Dolby Atmos for Headphones (more on that later). Voice comms were also clear. Other games like Skyrim were really detailed, with the harsh cling of weapons being drawn and the boom of spells detonating being well relayed. Even soft sounds such as the quiet whisper of a conjuration spell being equipped were clear and easy to pick up. One thing to note with the marketing for this headset that kind of bothers me – the headset by itself is not surround sound. As it is an unpowered analog headset it has no surround processing. You need to use a software surround virtualizer like Windows Sonic or Dolby Atmos for Headphones to get virtual surround sound. Windows Sonic is in all current Windows 10 builds and the Xbox One, Dolby Atmos for Headphones can be purchased optionally and used on up to 10 devices PCs or Xbox consoles. If you don’t have a software option for surround sound, you are left with stereo sound. Overall, this headset features excellent sound and build quality and a price point that is on target for an unpowered analog headset of this type. I would recommend it for a gamer or someone wanting to get a better sound experience than cheap headphones or ear buds.

    ---SETUP--- The setup of the G Pro headset was quick and simple. It’s plug and play, so there is no need to download any software. My PC recognized it immediately. ---FEATURES--- The key feature of this headset is that it is compatible with Windows Sonic and Dolby Atmos. I tried it with Dolby Atmos on Windows PC and on the Xbox One X and can confirm it works on both. Other features are the detachable mic, a two types of ear foams, and a 2m auxiliary cable with volume and mute controls. ---PERFORMANCE--- The performance of the headset is very good. I was able to hear things in games that I couldn’t hear before. The deep bass handles well on these as does the higher pitched sounds. The microphone was able to send my voice clearly, as my friends told me that they could hear me loud and clearer than before. When using this headset with Dolby Atmos, you can really hear the surround sound. A Dolby Atmos code isn’t provided with this set, so you must purchase that separately for 15 dollars on a PC or Xbox. It isn’t necessary for it to work, but does make a significant difference. ---EXPECTATIONS--- The product meets my expectations. Though they don’t have active noise cancellation, the pre-installed ear foams do a good job of not allowing noise in while you are wearing them. If that’s not something you want, you can install the alternate ear foams which allow more noise in. The ear foams are easy to remove and install. The cable and the microphone feel like they are quality made, as does the headset itself too. It is also lightweight, so you won’t feel it weigh you down on long sessions. This is by far the headset that does the best job in covering my ears completely and now pressing down on them while wearing them. It brings comfort to a new level. ---VALUE--- The price for the headset in terms of value is on par with its competitors. However, some competitors offer the Dolby Atmos code alongside their headset while Logitech doesn’t, so if that’s something you seek, keep that in mind. ---APPROVAL--- I highly recommend this product for gamers who want to take their competitions to the next level. Though they don’t come with a Dolby Atmos code, the headset is better that other sets I’ve experienced in terms of comfort, quality build, and performance.

    G PRO Wired Black: 981-000719 Build Mostly constructed of a nice matte black plastic taking a minimalistic approach. Branding is subtle with just the Logitech G stamped on the exterior of the ear cups. The cable is 2m long or 3ft for those who want the imperial system, and it is constructed of a braided wire that isn't stiff like many others. It is solidly built while remaining lightweight. The PRO headset uses advanced materials including TR90 nylon in the headband, stainless steel sliders, and glass fiber reinforced nylon​ joints. The lightweight construction with polymer shell and fork is perfect for long periods of wear and competitive gaming. I dont really like the volume controls on this but if you use a DAC who cares. I find the volume wheel to be very stiff and the control module kind of small. SOUND - PRO-G DRIVERS These drivers are made with hybrid mesh materials that produce clear sounds from quiet footsteps to gunshot audio signatures to voice comms. The sound is a bit low for my liking and lacks the big bass explosions but have a sound profile that favors mids and highs. These new drivers do however not have distortion many other headsets do out there. The G PRO is compatible with Windows 10 surround sound features like Windows Sonic for headphones and Dolby Atmos for headphones for accurate positional audio. Directional audio combined with exceptional clarity provides precise awareness of everything that’s happening around you. The earcups do a great job blocking out noise and provide great passive noise isolation. The ear cups provided are comfortable and I would rank them top 3 of the headsets I've used. There is only one company better that uses memory foam that I would put these behind. Also included in the package are soft micro-suede leatherette earpads. After connecting these to a DAC… AMAZING which leads me to believe these are underpowered using a standard audio jack. MICROPHONE - PRO-GRADE CONDENSER MIC Crystal clear comms provided by Logitech's pro-grade advanced condenser microphone. It has a wider frequency response, lower signal to noise ratio and higher sensitivity. I find it created a focuses on the mids of the human voice and offers a great sound close to a Blue mic. MULTI PLATFORM USE Ready for any system including PC, PS4™, Xbox One™ and Switch. It includes an adapter for PC gaming to split the mic and headphone audio. SPECS PHYSICAL SPECIFICATIONS: Height: 6.77 in (172 mm) Width: 3.22 in (81.7 mm) Depth: 7.17 in (182 mm) Weight: (w/o cable): 9.14 oz (259 g) PC Cable Length: 6.56 ft (2 m) TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS: Headphone: Driver: Hybrid mesh PRO-G Magnet: Neodymium Frequency response: 20Hz-20KHz Impedance: 32 Ohms Sensitivity: 107dB@1KHz SPL 30mW/1cm Noise Isolation: up to 16dB Cable length: 2m Surround: Windows Sonic and Dolby Atmos for headphones Compatible Materials: Headband: TR90 nylon Joint: Glass fiber reinforced nylon​ Slider: Stainless steel Ear and head pads: Leatherette Additional ear pads: Microsuede Earcups: Soft-touch Pro Microphone: Microphone Pickup Pattern: Cardioid (Unidirectional) Type: Back Electret Condenser Size: 4mm Frequency response: 100Hz-10KHz Arm: Full-range flex WARRANTY INFORMATION 2-Year Limited Hardware Warranty Overall I like it and it does well. I would recommend it as a top 3 headset at this price point. I would recommend using it with a DAC to get the best audio out of these good drivers.

    There are many features on the G-90 that add utility and value. The long 6.5’ cord has a braided cover which helps prevent knotting or snagging. There is a volume knob and mute slider on the cord integrated with a clip. The clip is in the right place for a shirt pocket, so you don’t feel the weight of the cord pulling on your headphone. A splitter cable with braided cover is included to plug the combo Headphone/Mic DIN jack into a PC with separate Mic and speaker jacks. If you prefer a different length cord, you can easily add an extension or change it out. There is nothing proprietary about either DIN end of the cable. The phones over the ear not only move up and down on the band, but also pivot horizontally to improve fit and comfort. They feel very light, lighter than their 9.1 ounces. They do not feel tight on the side of my head. I wore them comfortably several times for hours at a time, once for five hours straight and did not mind them. They hold their adjustment well. Close inspection shows them to be of excellent quality. There is nothing loose or flimsy, the quality is excellent. I felt hot with the leatherette earpads on, but it is summer. Fortunately, a set of microsuede pads are included. They feel soft and cooler; my skin can breathe now. However, they do not isolate sound as well as the other pads. Expect a bit more ambient sound at low volumes. Changing the pads takes a bit of time to work them on, especially around the jacks on the left side, but not terrible. Although it takes some work, the pads stay on securely and don’t budge at all. The sound is very bass heavy with music and movies. Even with the frequencies of 125 and down pushed to the basement (-20) on my EQ, there a was a heavy bass presence. While these are not my choice for music or movies, to be fair Logitech never advertised them as multi-purpose headphones. The G-Pro sounds really, really good when gaming on the PC. Despite the heavy bass when listening to music, sounds in games were crisp and clean. There is a real depth and realism to the sound stage that extends far beyond what a pair of PC speakers provide. You can hear someone walking on gravel on your left go behind and then around you in such a precise way that you feel like you can reach out and grab them. It’s almost too real at 3 AM with the lights out. I didn’t realize what I was missing. The detachable mic holds it position and works well, but is not super sensitive. The microphone must be pretty close to your mouth for other to hear you clearly and at a reasonable volume. This lack of sensitivity does seem to keep out distant ambient sound. A TV playing in the next room was not audible through the microphone. With performance products, there are always tradeoff’s like this. The clarity and precise sound stage the G-90 provides can give players a definite edge. I’m impressed at how much value you get at this price point. I wish I added headphones long ago. You need to try them. Best Buy’s return policy let’s take them back, so you have nothing to lose, but much to gain.

    ** The Good ** The G PRO headset is super easy to set up. Included in the box is a splitter so you can use both the headphone and mic ports on your PC. There’s no need for any special drivers or any need for software from Logitech to use. I would recommend enabling Windows Sonic to get the best sound experience. The headset is made of high-quality materials while still remaining relatively light, allowing you to comfortably use them for long periods of time. I am never worried that they might break if I accidently drop them. The earcups do an excellent job of reducing outside noise. These are not noise-cancelling headphones, but wow, they do an excellent job of noise isolation. I wear thick-framed glasses, and I can comfortably wear these for hours. Logitech also included some thinner earpads in the box if you prefer. Audio quality really surprised me. In the past, I’ve never had the best experience with gaming headsets delivering excellent sound quality for music and other media outside of video games. These are obviously closed-back headphones, but they still sound quite amazing for their price. Audio quality is so great that these are actually going to replace my old Sennheiser HD 558 headphones, becoming my only and primary headphones at home. The mic is high quality and is detachable. When in use, my friends and family say that sound quality is good and clear. It’s very flexible, so you can adjust and move the mic as you need. I would worry about dust collection, so when I’m not using the mic or headset, I just disconnect the mic and store it in a desk drawer. ** The Bad ** If you are someone who wants “RGB EVERTHING!!!”, you might be disappointed in this headset. I personally think RGB headsets are silly, since you can’t actually see the lights when in use, but whatever. That’s really the only “negative” aspect of the Logitech G PRO headset that I can really come up, this is really the best gaming headset I’ve ever used. ** Bottom Line** If you’re in the market for a new gaming headset, do yourself a favor and check these out at your local Best Buy. The headset has a very durable and premium build, while still being very light and comfortable for long gaming sessions (or just listening to music). While you don’t really need any software from Logitech, I recommend enabling Windows Sonic for the best sound experience.

    This is my review for the Logitech G pro gaming headset. I gave it 4 Stars. A couple reasons why. Maybe it was just my headset, but the mute button when muted would still pick up noise now and then. I use a PC and use discord and it would constantly still pick up. In discord when ever you talk your icon would light up. This would happen even when I had it muted. And others could hear for a brief second as well. Would not stay on long but it still happens. I also like to be able to push mic up out of the way. This only lets you pull mic out. Which is not easy to put back in without taking the headset off. The mic has a notch to make sure you put in all the way and correctly. But when eating for instance, I rather take a split second, push mic up out of way (which then mutes) and eat and then pull back down. Instead of having to pull the mic out and then try and get it back in. I also like the buttons on the headset itself rather then a switch on the cord. This has the mute and volume button on the cord which if not clipped onto shirt. The clip is also not a simple clip that you press to open and clip. It’s just a slit so not easy to place on shirt unless you place on the neck color. Would be nice if it was a clip that you press to open and can clip it easily on shirt. Would also be nice if farther down so you had more options on where to clip it. But those things are small and overall for the price this headset is one of the better ones I have used. Sound has just enough bass to it to sound great but not to much to overpower. Mic quality is great and everyone I talked with had no issues with how it sounded or it being to loud or to quiet. Great surround sound from it and easily could tell where players where from the sound. Sound is geared towards gaming so not the best for music and movies. I would imagine with software you could tweak it some to better the sound as needed. Have tried this headset on Pc and Xbox one. I wore them for a couple hours at a time and very comfortable. They cancel out noise pretty good but not fully. Which I personally like. Just in case someone needs something nice to still hear. I also do like that the mic comes off as well as the 3.5mm cord. So if packing those are not sticking out. Would love the mic to be able to come out as well as swivel up out of the way. I would love to see for the PC, software from Logitech to be able to customize the sound. Overall if looking for a headset that sounds great for under 100 dollars, I recommend these.

    Since it's a gaming headset, I tried it out with a game on twitch. It sounded okay with the volume cranked all the way up. I looked for ways to increase the volume, but my windows volume was at 100% and this headset doesn't have access to an equalizer and it doesn't show up in Logitech's software. That was a bummer for me and a deal breaker. The reason I tested it on Twitch was to see if full volume sounded good...and it did. It was about medium volume and although I couldn't go any higher, it was adequate. Playing music was a disappointment. I tried a number of mp3 files through itunes and a few flac files with Foobar. Both of them were way too low and after a number of Google searches and looking for settings, I found that it just wasn't going to happen. That said these will make a great pair of headphones for gaming. The microphone works pretty good and I didn't have any complaints while gaming. The mute switch works as it should. Some comments I saw said it has a slight lag, but I didn't find that in my case. The leather ear cups weren't my cup of tea. My ears started to sweat and the microfiber extra set didn't fair much better. Also I found the headset a bit heavy. Many commented that they wore it for hours with no issue, but I wore it for 30 minutes and it was a relief to take it off. The fit is great, but the weight is something I'll have wait and see if it gets better. The mic and cord are removable, so that's a plus. Having a second pair of ear pads is a plus too. There is also a splitter included should you need to connect to a mic and sound jack separately. In my case I didn't need it and the mic and sound worked as they should with just the one input through the front jack. All in all it seems like a decent entry level gaming headset. I'll have to get used to the weight and low volume, but I'd still recommend it to a friend. Maybe Logitech can do something about the volume or the lack of software available for this unit.

    Comfortable and Good Looking but Lacking Sound

    I have mixed feelings about this headset. These headphones worked great and I initially thought really highly of it when I first plugged it on. But after playing a couple of video games, there just wasn't something quite right about the sound. The problem was that there was no surround sound. I couldn't distinguish where the sound was coming from. This made me anxious every time I heard an enemies footsteps because I had no idea where they were and how close they were to me. I first doubted the problem was the headset itself, so I went online, downloaded the Logitech Gaming software, and updated the drivers. It still didn't work so then I looked up online, and sure enough, IGN said that these headsets didn't have surround sound. Other than that, these headsets are amazing and are really comfortable. I have a really wide and large head compared to others and the headset still felt comfortable. Even with glasses on, I could wear these headsets for hours on end. Along with the amazing cushions, this pair of headphones have a sleek design that are really lowkey. I could wear these to school and no one would notice they were for gaming unless they recognized the logo. Overall, these headphones are great to use because they are one of the most comfortable headphones I've ever worn. The sleek design is also a great addition, but the lack of surround sound really makes me wonder if this should be considered a legitimate "gaming" headset. It also is weird that Logitech named this product a "Surround Sound Headset." It is totally misleading.

    I am not an audiophile snob to any extent, i've used cheap 20 dollar headsets and been happy with them. Previous headset was a sennheiser game one for years, prior to that a Logitech g930, prior to that some cheap Chinese set. This headset however is pretty subpar. A: It's is not comfortable for prolonged use. I am at the computer most of the day. These start to make my head uncomfortable after a couple hours, not in the sense of extreme pain but definitely not comfortable enough to the point where you want to take them off. In comparison I used to fall asleep in my previous several headsets without an issue( and wake up in them after a rested sleep in the morning!) Definitely stick to open back not closed back headset. B: The sound quality is TEERRRRIBLE, sound at times sounds like its mostly coming from one side and quality is overall atrocious and muffled. (literally worse than any cheap chinese headset that I have ever used) Returning asap. Unfortunately games ones are not available anymore from best buy. Overall will be looking for a good quality open backed headset that I can attach a vmoda mic to. While initially the lack of bass compared to closed backs is distracting, the comfort and sound quality is significantly better with open back. I cannot even begin to tell you how many times I would peek outside or over my shoulder trying to figure out where the sound was coming from outside, as that is simply how lifelike the sound was in the Sennheiser game ones.

    Good Headset, but a long way from Great

    My first impressions of this headset were that it looked plain, didn't have any "wow" factor, and felt very middle of the road. Unfortunately, those first impressions have stayed with me throughout my use of it. When first using this headset, I noticed that it seemed much quieter than any other headset I have used when gaming. On top of that, unless the microphone was uncomfortably close to my mouth, people I play with said I was WAY to quiet. After moving the mic boom closer, everyone kept hearing a terrible echo of the game in my headset coming through my mic to them. After about 2 hours of tweaking settings, I got rid of the echo and got the sound acceptable. Although this headset is quieter then other headsets I have used, it is very pin-point on sounds. If someone was creeping around my location in a game, I knew exactly what direction and had a really good idea of how close. This accuracy has made of for most of the volume issues, but It would have been a definitive win for the sound if the ear cups were noise cancelling. Unfortunately you can hear everything in the room you are in, no matter how low. Build Quality of the headset seems acceptable, but stops there. It doesn't fit my head very well if I am wearing a ball cap, and the poseable mic is not very friendly to get into or keep in the right position. Logitech does win big points with me though for including the 3.5mm adapter necessary to use this headset with computers not using the current computer sound settings. Overall, good headset, gets the job done, but could be better.

    Solid entry level headset

    The Logitech Pro gaming headset is simple to setup and use gaming headset. You get the headset, a boom mic, 3.5mm connector cable with volume and mic control, a mic/speaker adapter, and an extra set of ear pads. I used the set on a PC, but it can connect to Xbox One or a PS4. Setup is easy. There is no software for the headphones, it’s just plug and play. The boom mic fits in the forward-facing headset jack, and the connector cable on the bottom oriented one. The ear cups can rotate 90 degrees so the whole unit can be laid down flat on a surface. An adapter is included, if needed, to split the connector into mic and headset jacks for a PC. Once plugged in, the headset worked fine. Voice was clear and games sound fine. The microphone worked with no problems. People could understand me, and it worked with some voice activated programs. The programs pickup up my words exactly. The ear pads where large enough and comfortable. The headband was a little snug, but I expect it’ll give a bit over time. The headset is plastic and is lightweight. The volume control and mic on/off slider worked with no issues. The sounds quality was better with voice, it’s not tuned to listening to music, but it sounded okay. For an under $100 full headset this is a good deal. It’s nothing fancy with 5/7.1 simulated audio, drivers, or extra lights, you get stereo headphones and a mic that can work on just about anything. If you need or have to keep the noise down on a budget, these should do just fine.

    PROS: • Nice Design • Lightweight • Adjustable • Additional Cushions • Noise Reduction • Comfortable CONS: • Low Sound • Replacement of Cushions are Tricky Review: The Logitech - G PRO Wired Surround Sound Gaming Headset for PC, PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, VR have a nice design, that make it look high end and sleek. They are lightweight and comfortable. After a while you won’t even notice you are wearing them. Additional cushions are a plus. After some wear and tear, you can swap them out but not without some patience and time. This action can be a bit tricky as to getting the small plastic liner into the seam of the boom isn’t easy. There is decent noise reduction and is noticeable as soon as you put them on. As far as noise reduction when there’s audio coming from the headset, I wasn’t able to tell. I could never get the volume loud enough. After trying this headset on a Windows 10 PC and Xbox One, I was unable to get the sound loud. There were times the sound would come out at a whisper. This included chatting or any sound from music and gameplay. Tried several options, including connecting it to a wireless headset adapter to increase the volume, but to no avail on either system I tried. This headset was greatly appealing after unboxing it and having it in hand. After having the sound issues, it was disappointing to say the least.

    Good Comfort and Sound/Build Quality

    The G PRO headset from Logitech is a great option for anyone looking for a sub $100 set that is comfortable to wear and has reasonably good sound quality. I've used these for a number of different applications, including gaming, music listening, and business meetings, and the headset did not disappoint. The headset feels great, both from comfort and build quality perspectives. I wore these for hours on end with no real fatigue common to other headsets. Some of this can be attributed to the fact that they're fairly light, but not in a way that makes them feel cheap. Bonus points for having both a removable audio cable and a removable mic, allowing for easy replacement down the road. Sound quality is good, but not amazing. The overall stock sound profile is light on the bass side of things, but overall, sound is very evenly balanced and clear. As mentioned, for those planning to double duty these for meetings, they work well in that context. The only minor inconvenience is that the mute button doesn't interface with Skype since these plug in via an 1/8th inch jack. This is minor since it allows use with any number of devices (phone, PC, game console, etc). Overall, these are a great option for anyone looking in this price range for a headset with good build quality, adequate sound, and great comfort.

    I am an audiophile and gamer in my spare time. I purchased the Logitech’s Pro G headset and the quality of the build is solid. It comes with... Console/PC cable with inline volume and mute Detachable mic with full pop-filter Logitech G PRO Wired Surround Sound Gaming Headset for PC, PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, VR Microsuede ear pads Noise isolating leatherette ear pads Owner's manual PC splitter for separate mic and headphone jacks The sound in stereo is exceptional. The comfort level is superb compared to other headphones. I used the Dolby Atmos or Windows Sonic (you have to make the change in Sound panel of windows and simply go to the spatial sound and select either one. I prefer the Dolby Atmos because it has better clarity and an larger presence with positional sounds that can enhance your game play. In stereo the sound is close to being an audiophile headphone. My friends on BO4 say my voice is clear and detailed with the mic. I purchased my set at Best Buy for $79.99 Easy set up and sounds outstanding right out of the box.

    Excellent Set of Gaming Headphones

    Logitech really seems like they've put alot of time and effort into designing their gaming line of products. This G Pro Wired Headset is a great headset for anyone looking for a quality and comfortable gaming headset thats compatible across all platforms. First thing I noticed right off the bat is the extra set of leatherette ear pieces that come with the headset. Most companies never do this for over ear units so I found this to be a very nice addition. Every cable that comes with the headset is braided. The microphone has a harder bendable braided cable to position the mic correctly. It feels sturdy and solid compared to some flimsy mics I've used in the past. The headphones do a great job of noise cancelling and the sound is crisp and clear. Every game I've used it on so far has been a blast. I usually don't use gaming headphones just exclusively to play single player but I've found myself wearing them more because of the immersion it gives to the game! Also I love that the headset is compatible with different gaming systems. I have a PS4 and an Xbox One X as well as a PC games so its nice to be able to switch back between all of them with the additional cable provided. All in all I give this headset 5 stars because it flat out gets the job done. I highly recommend.

    First thing I noticed when using these with PS4 is the volume level is low, even with the in-line volume level at maximum. I had to turn the volume level on the PS4 setting up to a few notches from maximum. This headset has pretty decent clarity, but the bass is a little thin. Explosions, gun shots and such don't have the impact that you would expect. Microphone seems to be very good on this headset and it is detachable, as is the the 3.5mm connector cord. Comfort wise they are easy to wear for extended gaming sessions. They come with a secondary set of ear cushions, but I found the leatherette ones that come already attached were the best. These are over the ear design and should work for most ear sizes. They can also be rotated to lay flat if you have them resting on your neck, which is a plus. I would say these are good for gaming, but not as much so for music listening. I did notice the audio cuts out periodically while gaming and am not sure why. I would say these are worth a buy for those who want a solid build quality and a comfortable fit for extended gamins sessions.

    Great sounding headset

    This is my first gaming headset I've owned. Usually when I'm playing, I'll use my TV or computer speakers and I thought those were fine. But this Logitech Pro headset has been a nice addition to my gaming. Build quality of these headphones are awesome. They feel solid and the leatherette ear pads feel very nice. The cables are nicely braided and feel like they will last. Sound is awesome. Playing GTA V, you hear every detail and it surrounds you. And because they are over-ear, they do a decent job isolating outside noise. In general, over-ear headphones and headsets will start to make your ears hurt and sweat after hours of use. There's really nothing getting around that and something you have to get used to. Also, something great with these is that they plug into any 3.5mm port, so they work well with Switch and PS4. I've also used them to listen to music on my iPhone and they sound great there too. The Logitech Pro Gaming Headset is an awesome edition to any gamer's tool set. If you're looking for a headset that sounds great, is built with nice materials, and made to last, then I think this Pro headset will be the perfect choice.

    This G PRO headset was used with a PC for gaming and evaluation. Like many of their gaming mice, Logitech has combined “light” with “durable” construction for this headset. Sound is excellent, and compatible with both Windows Sonic and Dolby Atmos. Noise-cancellation is not available, but the ear cups fit nicely over the ears and minimize outside noise interference. The microphone is easy to adjust and very flexible, which I prefer to the hard plastic “flip down” design on some other headsets I have used. The headset is very light, and well cushioned for long periods of game play, especially when wearing glasses. The appearance is very conservative and may be especially attractive to the gamer who doesn’t desire a lot of splash on their headset (you can’t see it anyway, so comfort may win out over “sizzle” in this case). For the price, these are one of the better pairs of headsets for gaming. Audiophiles probably want to look elsewhere, but for game play and getting the nuances of sound needed to keep track of what is going on around you during game play, this headset is among one of the top performers in the price range.

    Logitech G-Pro Wired Headset

    Just received my Logitech G-Pro Headset a few days ago and this thing is amazing. It comes packaged with the noise isolating ear pads, detachable microphone, and an audio cable which connects to a PC/Mac, Xbox, or PS4 (and possibly any other mobile device such as a cell phone that still has a headphone jack). The audio cable is really long which I love so I don't feel like I have to be right up on my screen. There is also an inline volume control and easy to use mute button also. The headset fits nicely and can also extend for larger domes, LOL. The ear cuffs are like the most comfortable ear cuffs I've ever tried on any headset ever. Sound quality I really loved. Very nice and clear with just the right amount of bass as well. While talking with others using the microphone, there were no issues and everyone said my feedback was nice and clear from my end. This is a very good headset and I recommend it to anyone looking for a nice gaming headset, which can also be used as a regular headset via the audio cable.
