    Excellent Headset for the Price

    Posted .

    I purchased this headset in April 2017. They have been an amazing headset up until the point when the bracket that holds the left speaker to the headband broke (an issue that many others have had as I have come to find out). The sound quality was awesome and the mic was very clear. Just this month, the headband bracket took a dive and made the headset unwearable - BUT Logitech has a 3 year warranty =) After a short discussion with Logitech's support line and emailing a picture of the broken part, they are sending me a free replacement. Logitech's warranty customer service is hands down the BEST that I have ever had to deal with. (Note: the support website was down, so I called in to their tech line, and they took care of it for me from there.) So All-in-all: Is it a great headset for the money? Yes. Is it a bummer that the bracket broke? Yeah. Do I feel I've wasted my $40? Absolutely Not. If you have this headset, or are thinking of buying them, just keep an eye on the plastic bracket. Once it starts to show signs of fatigue, contact Logitech Support and get your free replacement =) These headsets are still available to purchase in-store today. Don't fear the possible (probable) breakage. Logitech stands behind their products.

    The Best Gaming Headphones For a Great Price

    Posted .

    After my old generic gaming headphones that I purchased at a large retail chain store stopped working properly, I decided to go to Best Buy to take a look at their selection of gaming headsets. The Logitech - G430 headphones had every feature I needed, and more. They are incredibly comfortable, the virtual surround sound makes your games come to life. You can easily locate the source of a sound in a game since you can easily tell if it's in front, behind, or beside you. The microphone is crystal clear to the other players, and the headphones produce sounds that seem to be coming from surround sound speakers. I have owned a number of different headsets, and I can say that these are by far the best ones I've ever owned, and the price is unbelievably low! I'm so glad I decided to purchase the Logitech - G430 headphones from Best Buy!

    These headphones are beyond amazing! The sound quality is worth your buck! The speaker is clear when communicating. The muffs feel snug but comfy, you forget you're wearing them.

    Needs Broken In, But Wonderful Product

    Posted .

    Pros: Surround Sound Works - I had to get use to the placement of the sounds because I kept turning my physical head towards it to better hear it. Of course this did not work. Fits my big head - I have problems with hats and other headsets fitting my head, but these worked fine. Just for reference, I can just barely wear the Playstation Gold headset and even then they sit wrong. Two Years and going - They are pretty much under constant use, though I am pretty gentle when handling them. Note: The only spot to watch is the swivel portion of the headset. Feels cheap, but haven't had any problems with it. Mic - Works well with good voice pickup and noise cancelling. Sounds natural. The voice monitoring works well, but once in a great while it cuts out. Nothing a software restart can't fix. Cons: Headband - That blue support band took FOREVER to break in. Took around a month, but it felt longer with how much it hurt my head. Mind you, I was wearing it for 5 or more hours on end. Now that it is broken in I love it. Max Volume - I would recommend not using these with the analog dial set to max. Notch it down a little. This is because of the static the headset makes when Maxed out. Really annoying, but easily fixed. Neutral: The length of the cord is insanely long. I can see how this might annoy some people.

    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!

    The Logitech G430 headset is a fantastic choice. Amazing sound, a flexible microphone boom that can be moved out of the way, comfortable to wear, sturdy construction and all while remaining under $100. The only thing that I don't like is that the headset does not cancel out all other external sound. While this may not matter to some people, those who want the experience of complete immersion, external sound is a problem. That being said external sounds are dampened and muffled quite considerably. You will be hard pressed to find better quality sound output even in much more expensive headsets. The G430 delivers rich 7.1 simulated surround sound, you will hear sounds as if they are in front of you, behind you, to the either side, above you, below you, and any combination. For example you will hear the helicopter coming in from the top right front, cries for help from the front bottom left and a rifle being fired behind you while bullets whiz past your head...ALL AT THE SAME TIME! Of course to experience that sort of sound your media has to provide 7.1 channel sound. The G430 headset is made of durable plastic, comfortably padded over-ear speakers and headband. The headband itself also has wide metal extenders that provide a beefy sense of quality. One of the best features of the G430 is often overlooked, the wire has the typical rubber coating of any wired headset that can separate due to over extension causing a short in sound reception or delivery through the microphone. Logitech takes durability a step further by sheathing the wire in a woven/braided fabric cover that minimizes if not prevents the stretching of the wire, virtually eliminating the wire short out problem that most other wired headsets have. Speaking of wire the G430 has a very long cord with in-line volume control as well as mute switch for the microphone. Also the G430 can be used either with the dual audio in/out jacks or with the provided USB jack adapter. I prefer the audio jacks so that I have one less peripheral taking up a USB port. I paid $77.99 plus tax for my Logitech G430 headset which is a stunningly low price for the quality. I've seen and used far inferior headsets that were more expensive and none that are less expensive come close to the quality of the Logitech G430. Also it comes with a limited TWO YEAR warranty, I personally purchased the 2 year comprehensive Geek Squad warranty just for my own peace of mind. Even with the extra warranty my total was less than $100 you just can't beat that. Would I recommend this product to a friend? All day, everyday. If you're looking for a quality headset that delivers amazing sound for less than $100 you can't go wrong with the Logitech G430. If your budget is between $50 - $100 get the Logitech G430, most wired gaming headsets start at around $50 and go up from there. Why not pay a little more for the G430 and get the sound quality you're looking for? Why pay more and get disappointed?

    Pretty good but it is Emulated surround sound.

    Posted .

    So I have this headset for about a month now and its pretty good. The surround sound works great when it only has one thing to play like music or just a game, but when you add things together it really starts to fall apart. Lets say you use Teamspeak, Mumble, or Skype to chat with your friends while your playing a game. The audio starts to gets crackly and sounds very distorted. Even if you are listen to music and playing a game it really just doesn't sound good. For the price it is alot better then the H2100's from corsair I know that for sure!

    Great for gamers looking for an afforadble headset

    Posted .

    Are you looking for a headset that provides comfort for up to multiple hours at a time? How about a headset that not only has great sound and voice recognition but helps cancel out all other outside noise and distractions so you can focus when it really matters? I often found myself not able to properly hear my teammates in game, or not being able to easily communicate due to my poor microphone, however, with the Logitech - G430 Over-the-Ear Gaming Headset, I was finally able to step up my game and hear all audio in surround sound as well as communicate clearly and effectively to my teammates with the noise cancelling microphone. I have owned this specific headset since January 2014, and so far is has definitely been one of the better computer peripherals I have purchased. Advantages: The Logitech - G430 Over-the-Ear Gaming Headset is made of a sturdy and durable, yet light weight plastic and metal that provides comfort through long use sessions. The padding around the ear phones and the top of the headset is soft and made of a comfortable cloth material that is removable and washable in order to keep your headset nice and clean. The wires are surrounded by a tough mesh material that prevents tangling and tearing, and also has an on-cable volume and microphone control. The sound quality is amazing as it uses Dolby 7.1 surround sound in order to really immerse you in any game setting. The ear cups fit snugly to your head in order to prevent any outside noise from interfering with your audio. These headphones were definitely my saving grace when it came to clear and crisp audio as well as comfort. Disadvantages: Like many technology products there are some distinct disadvantages. A disadvantage of this product is that for individuals that wear glasses like myself it does not always fit properly and may sometimes press your glasses down roughly into the bridge of your nose at first. After a few months of use this stopped occurring as the foam ear pads formed to the placement of my glasses. Many other product reviewers have stated how frail and flimsy the plastic material is, however, I have not experienced this in the year and a half that I have owned this product. If you take great care of this headset and do not overly stretch the ear cups the plastic should remain intact. If you are looking for an affordable headset that is comfortable, durable, and offers great sound and voice quality than this is the product you are looking for. There are very similar products that offer these same exact benefits, however, I find this one to be the best in terms of what you will be spending.

    Very good headset at a very good price point.

    Very good headset at a very good price point. It is not perfect, but the imperfections lie more with the firmware/software than with the hardware. PROS: - VERY COMFORTABLE the cloth cover of the ear pads felt great. The clamp force is just right. The material on the cups feels great. They are very breathable, they do not feel warm or hot, and they will not make your ears sweat. The foam is okay, other much more expensive headsets have softer foams. - Very long braided blue cord terminating in 3.5mm jacks (it does come with a USB plug). The cord is thin and very soft, but feels very premium, high quality and strong. In addition, it comes with a Velcro strap that you can use to organize the cord. - The virtual surround sound delivers on its promise. This will up your game if your system supports Dolby 7.1 or virtual surround sound. I have been playing various games and the positional/directional sound support is so beautiful and immersive. CAVEAT: you need to install the bloated Logitech gaming software + you need to use the included usb sound card for virtual surround sound to work but more on that later - Noise reduction on the mic is great. Headsets that are more expensive have those bendable mics and stuff - this does not, and I like it that way. It feels very futuristic and sturdy. I recorded myself sitting beside an electric fan and when I listened to the recording, I could not even hear the fan but my voice was very loud and clear. Very happy about this - comes with 3.5mm analog mic and headset jacks. Perfect for when you just need stereo sound and you cannot be bothered with USB CONS: - WILL NOT WORK ON USB 3.0 ports! Believe me; I spent four agonizing hours trying to figure out why my mic would not work properly and why the drivers kept crashing my desktop. Logitech tech support on their official forums was no help. Out of sheer frustration, I finally stumbled on the solution - I decided to try switching my connection from my USB 3.0 port to my USB 2.0 port and made the headset the primary and it suddenly worked perfectly. - Logitech Gaming Software the only reason to install this is if you absolutely need 7.1 virtual surround sounds. SUMMARY: GET THIS HEADSET. It would be a steal at this price if only Logitech would become organized and update the firmware to work with USB 3.0. Other than that, this headset is near perfect.

    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.

    Solid budget headset for Windows PC gaming

    Posted .

    This is a review for both the G430 and G432: Two of my relatives and I have been using this headset - specifically the G430 and G432 models that are nearly identical as far as I can tell - for gaming, work, and/or academics on Windows PCs. After around 3 years I have had no issues with the G430 headset, and neither have my relatives in their nearly 1 to 2.5 years of using either device model. The sound is solid as far as I can tell, though I am not an audiophile. It feels good to wear, with plenty of adjustment options for me as far as fitting it on my head or positioning the microphone go. The cable is longer than I have ever needed it to be so no issues there. The headset pretty much works as a plug-and-play device with no setup needed for any functionality I expected out of it. The "USB digital-to-analog converter" is a great bonus in case you use a PC that does not have both an audio and microphone jack port thingy. The inline volume level adjustment and microphone enable/disable control thingy on the wire has been useful for me, specifically with giving me an alternative way to mute my mic during phone calls. I have yet to find anything I don't like about this headset. If I need another Windows PC headset, I will be looking for this product or similar models from Logitech. The MSRP price seems fair to me, though I recommend waiting for sales that intermittently come for this product as spending less is nice.

    Best budget Headset for the price

    Posted .

    So as a previous owner of the Logitech 930s, the G430s matches up to its senior competitor. My opinion about this item is that if you are looking for a cheap, comfortable, and best quality headset budget money can buy I highly recommend this headset. Easy to install and ready for gaming in seconds. Pros: Compared to the 930s its equivalent in sound and they both offer 7.1 Surround Sound. Unlike the 930s they are wired but I highly recommend wired headsets anyways because the 930s wireless aspect feature gave me so many issues of it disconnecting multiple times that it got frustrating powering back on the headsets, However the 430s are wired and give no issues like that at all. The comfort bands on the headsets earphones and headrest are still as comfortable as the 930s. Cons: There are only 3 cons I found so far that come along with headsets. Like most wired headsets the wire tangles up pretty easily. The second issue, I dislike is that with you raise the mic all the way up, the mic is still on, unlike the 930s when you lifted the mic all the way up it muted itself. However the 430s does come with a mini sound adjuster to mute or raise the volume. My final con about this item is the feedback the mic/headphones produce, I noticed that if i raise my mic levels to the max I head my own voice feedback through the headphones which got really annoying really quick however is easily fixed by readjusting the mic levels through the properties. Even with those cons I still recommend the headset for the budget gamer. Honestly I'm loving the headsets better than the G930s and for the price and 2-year warranty its a great deal!

    Hey Guys, The headset is awesome, definitely worth the money. sound quality is 7/10 comfort 7/10 construction 8/10 Now lets get into the details of those ratings! Sound quality is a huge factor when buying a headset, #duh! This headset here is a great entry level headset bought this for my GF, when i first got her; her PC. Was't looking to spend a lot incase she wasn't a gamer but wanted to make the experience decent enough she could really find out. This headset did just that, works well sound is okay not as direction as higher end headsets but for the price can't be beat. Overall sound is good enough for a entry level headset and is not an award winner but that was to be expected. Comfort is literally the second most important thing for me when purchasing a headset, this one does it alright. They are comfortable for a couple hours then you can really feel the pressure points. However for the price point its nothing i would let deter me from purchasing this head set, just something to be conscious of. The construction is mediocre at best, however its not this headsets fault its just how Logitech builds them now a days. However we have had this for awhile now and not a single issue has occurred! Overall i'd say its great for the price point but there are definitely other options to consider but they are much higher in price than these! I would buy them again and recommend them to a friend! -IceDelnorte

    Owned for 5 months when reviewed.

    This is a full over the ear headset with separate analog connectors for audio and microphone. The sound is good quality is good and isolation from outside sound is excellent. I get no complaints on the microphone quality from fellow players. Having said that I guess I have decided that I don't like this kind of headset. The weight of the thing becomes tiresome after an hour or so. The earpieces are thermally insulating so I overheat during game play or work and start to sweat. The control to disable the microphone is located down on the cable. I like to keep my mic disabled except when I want to talk. It requires some fumbling to access this mic control. Also, the mic control is poorly labelled. It is far from obvious which position is on and which off. Usually I have to go through a "can you hear me now" process with the other players to verify operation. I should say that the mechanical design of the headset is pleasing. The materials are high quality. The braided cable is nice. My next headset purchase will be a USB model with LED indicating microphone is on and switch on the mic boom to control it.

    Can't beat the price for a 7.1 headset.

    |
    Posted .

    Before I get into this, let me just say: I bought this on sale, for $50. I wasn't expecting too much from a $50 7.1 headset, but I was pleasantly surprised. Pros: -Sound quality is pretty good, for a non-amplified headset. -It is incredibly comfortable once you get the foam broken in. -The Surround Sound capability is almost spot-on, which is great since it's Virtual. -The microphone is "uni-directional," which basically means each side of the mic will pick up sound. Nice thing is though, is it's noise-cancelling. -The headband is made of a fairly thick metal, which will greatly increase the durability of the headset, and also keeps it planted to your head a bit better. -Look great...I mean, VERY great. Cons: -The mids and bass are a bit lacking, but that's to be expected from an unamplified headset. -The USB dongle/sound-card can cause some serious problems at times...and for an audiophile, it's no fun. Sound isn't consistent. -Previously mentioned USB dongle is REQUIRED for Virtual 7.1 Surround. -Isn't True Surround, but it was under $80 (even before the sale) Overall: I gotta say...for the price I paid, I got ALOT. When Surround Mode is activated in the software Logitech directs you to download, you can pretty easily pinpoint where enemies are coming from. The sound, although lacking a bit, is still quite powerful and clear despite not being amplified via USB. The microphone is alot better than my previous headset's (Turtle Beach X12), and cancels out quite alot of "ambient noise." If you're looking for a relatively cheap, well-rounded headset, I'd definitely recommend the Logitech G430.
