    Great positional audio!

    Its a great headset, I love the bass, definitly an upgrade from my previous headset. I love the DTS positional audio. I do know that most people say that surround sound on headsets are gimmicky and its better to get a stereo ones. Well, on these, its not gimmicky at all. The 7.1 works wonderful. I mainly play Rainbow six siege and Battlefield one, and I can tell you these have given me the edge. I can hear everything, specially on Rainbow six, where sound matters much. I got the jump on people above me, behind me, etc. It's amazing. You can configure one button to mute (however folding the mic, mutes it) so I have configured the button to enable/disable the 7.1 surround (good to disable when playing music, or stereo videos). I wear glasses and they are comfy, after a long gaming session, not hurting at all. Only downside is they only work through their USB adaptor (which is a soundcard too, and 7.1 at that). They don't have a 3.5mm analog input for the likes of phones, or xbox one. I've read some people using them on the PS4 since it accepts usb headsets, but don't quote me on that, I mainly game on PC.

    Perfect For Me

    For some people 7.1 positional audio for gaming is a gimmick. However, for me it works very well with the right headset. I spent a little time adjusting the equalizer settings/bass & treble levels in the G533 & it made a huge difference. For example, playing BF1 using the FPS equalizer preset the exploding canon shells & other environmental cues sounded great but the soldiers weapons & footsteps were muffled & muddy sounding. After creating a new equalizer setting the game came alive having a crisp, clear bright sound that brought out details & made everything sound more authentic. Had I not made adjustments to the G533 I would have returned it. Glad I took the time to discover how good a wireless headset can be. I bought my G533 from BB when they were 1/3 less than the original asking price. I noticed today they are $20 less than that – guess its a special won’t last. For either price I think the G533 is a bargain. I’m very happy with mine.

    A nice upgrade from my 930 headset

    I had a Logitech G930 for about 6-7 years but was looking to upgrade after the microphone starting intermittently shorting out and the ears cups began to flake a bit over the last year. I chose the G533 for its cleaner design, feel and sound and have found it to be a nice improvement over the G930. It feels lighter, sits a bit more comfortably on my head and the cloth ear cups allow your ears to cool better than the 930's faux leather. With the newer 7.1 drivers in the G533 music has a more orchestral/auditorium feel to it compared to closer "room" sound I was getting with the G930, but you can tweak the equalizer to whatever sensitivity you want in the options menus. I have noticed that you are not able to tweak the treble and bass as much in the options now, but check youtube for some tutorials to get the settings that are preferable. Surround sound has improved well and I have noticed the directional noises (like footsteps, gunshots and vehicles in games like PUBG) are more precise and definitive to aid in gaming. Overall, the G533 headset has some nice improvements my previous G930 and I would say if your trying to decide between between the G533 or the G933, go with the style of headset you like. I looked at lots of reviews for both before deciding and ultimately chose the cleaner, more traditional styling of of the G533. I have been very happy with my purchase of the G533 so far and will likely have this set for a long time. It's comfortable, durable, has a 15-16 hour battery life and has a great sound.

    Much improved over the Logitech G930

    First things first. I'm no audiophile. I have, however, accumulated many headsets over the years. I think my first one was the Logitech G930. It was mainly purchased for it's wireless capabilities. The sound left much to be desired, and the wireless feature was somewhat unreliable. I think I only used it for a year. The G533 headset, however, is great! Now, I can't comment on the mic because I never use it since I don't play multiplayer much or skype or twitch or whatever, but the sound and the 7.1 surround sound are really good. I mainly use the surround sound when playing pc games. I'm currently replaying the Witcher 3 and it sounds great. Listening to the storms and the music sound great with these headphones. I did try some Battlefield 1 out of curiosity and I was more impressed with the sound than I was the graphics and the graphics are amazing. The surround and the bass are great. The wireless signal is top notch and never once has it cut out, nor have I had any interference. The only thing I would knock it on would be the texture of the ear pads. They could be a little softer, but overall the headset is very comfortable even after several hours of use. Would definitely recommend.

    I have always had all Razer products, and I bought these because I liked the ear shape better. What a mistake. I use my headphones daily for online gaming. They worked alright for the first two months, then I had constant issues. Microphone wouldn't work randomly, I couldn't hear through my headphones, they didn't charge, they would constantly turn off for no reason when they were supposedly fully charged. I take care of my stuff. Every night when I was done, they would be hung up on the wall in their designated spot. Unfortunately, I waited too long to return them to Best Buy. I contacted Logitech, and they did absolutely nothing for me. Today, they finally completely stopped working for whatever reason. I could not hear anyone and my microphone wouldn't work. My husband is a programmer. He went through all my setting, we reset everything. Nothing helped. They are going in the garbage. I will NEVER purchase anything Logitech again. I would have considered it if they had responded and offered to replace the item. I'll be purchasing a Razer headset to replace these awful headphones.

    Great for Gaming so far

    I just got these a couple days ago and so far they are great. I upgraded from some g930's which are total junk due to the constant disconnects. The sound on these is just about as good as the G930's (better since it never cuts out :). Do yourself a favor and turn off the surround sound immediately for gaming and team speak. It's terrible - It just adds a huge echo. For music I guess it depends. I turned it on and off and didn't notice a huge difference. The surround on my old G930's was far superior. I still can hear all around me when gaming. I just added a new EQ profile and set it up for my taste. The Bass reverb is kinda fun with these. The mic seems pretty good. My mates on TS tell me I sound the same as I did with my G930's. Oh and Logitech introduced these at $150.00 price point. I got mine on sale for $90.00 and the price just dropped to $70.00. You won't find any other headsets this good for $70.00. They are also comfy on my larger sized head and the ear pad material is nice and breathable so my ears don't get hot.

    The only fault of this is the software in if you get a bad unite that the speaker goes. Out. Which happened to me after a while . But for the price it's built nice battery holds up good the sound quality is really great . You can customize the eq settings for it .it can be wired and be pulg in while using it in the wireless aspect . The software it the only let down since after I did an update the head set would start acting weird and not save my settings of how I wanted to listen to music and game sound on my PC . It work will with my Xbox one . I was told buy Best buy when I returned these for my issue of the speaker not working in one ear and the mic being broken that they were discontinue but in reality they sell sell them online . Which is sad cause I would have love to get them again instead of the g933 which I had more issues with personally

    Very good Headset

    I bought this headset for dual purposes. I wanted something I could wear at work & speak to customers on the phone (through the computer) and also for at home gaming. They are very comfortable - I wear glasses, so comfort was very important to me. I have had no complaints about phone conversations since buying this headset, either. I usually listen to music and then use the dial on the side of the headphones to turn the volume up for phone calls. Overall, it's very comfortable to wear for multiple hours, and I would recommend this headset as a good alternative to the cheap headsets most companies buy, and a good alternative to the gaudy "gaming" headsets that are mostly what you see when looking for something that will hook up to your PC wirelessly. My only complaint would be that sometimes my ears sweat - but that's what I get for wearing the headset hours on end!

    This is the first set of headphones I've owned that have met and exceeded my expectations. It took me a bit to figure out how to get the best sound of them but once I downloaded the controller from Logitech's website they perform perfectly. Easy to set up a personal profile for gaming or choose a preset one. The 7.1 sound system is amazing, especially with FPS. They are comfortable to wear for hours and I like the foam ear coverings come off so they may be washed. The only drawback was trying to find the s/n for the product. It is located inside the right earpiece where the battery is located. Once found I needed a magnifying glass to read the number. Other than that it's a five-star product all the way! I would recommend or gift this product to anyone that wants a fantastic set of gaming headphones!

    The old g950 had issues with connections and then came the g933 which fixed all the issues with the g950 and now the g533 does away with the gamery aesthetic and puts it in a more affordable package while still offering superb wireless reliability, i have used them for 1 day and i must say the range is really great i have tested it about 40feet away with 2 concrete walls in the way of the pc, the sound is great and offers a spacious sound like you were in a bigger place with multiple speakers, the bass is not punchy but with tunning the equalizer it might fix it, overall sound is good and the wireless and sleek look make it a must buy, just as a reminder i got these at $99.99 on sale and at this price they are really good.

    Great mic/headset. I was looking to spend $50-$75 but could not come to a choice. So I put the price up a bit and started looking at these. I was not disappointed. Really good battery life. Sound quality is phenomenal. I haven't received any complaints from friends I playbwith about the mic. The drivers installed flawlessly and the headset was working in 2 minutes. I have a friend who has the most expensive version of astros and he has the hardest time making it so his mic doesn't echo or pick up interference from the game while mine were just plug in and go. Side note: it's also nice being able to mute the mic by moving the mic up. Don't have to mess around finding a button on the headset and forgetting to turn it back on.

    As the title implies this was a great purchase, a really solid headset. Comfort is usually key for me as I have a large noggin and in that department the G533 does not disappoint, even in hours long gaming sessions. As far as the sound goes - the the 7.1 surround is crystal clear and turned up to a pretty high level I could not hear my roommates 3 feet away from me which, needless to say is awesome. The Logitech sound mixer app is great as well as it allows you to customize your levels if you are into that or choose from a good number of previously made profiles (FPS, Cinematic gaming, etc). All in all pleasantly surprised with this headset, definitely happy.

    Provides good sound quality, and has a good build that grips your head adequately. Cups are deep enough that my ears (which stick out a bit, so they often rub against the inside of many headphones) fit inside comfortably. This allows for extended use. The headset does not charge quickly, though, so if you are using it while charging it won't gain much ground. It is also fairly heavy, due to the batteries, and to cut weight the materials can feel cheap.

    Received Faulty Product

    My device came faulty. I tried updating the firmware and used the product support page directly from the manufacturer but no solutions were found. My device has to remain plugged into a power source for the headset to work (even after countless hours of charging it) making the Wifi function completely useless. After searching around for support on these headsets, I found that many others had issues with the headset as well. Definitely DO NOT purchase this product.

    4 months into owning these and I'm very happy. It could be better, the volume scroll wheel is located in a weird spot, so when you want to use it, it's a bit tough to feel out, but when you're looking to do anything else, you'll find it without issue. I get some weird crackling sounds once in a while, a bit annoying, and the range is decent. It cuts off after about 2-3 thick NYC apartment walls, but I don't really need it to work that far. I haven't tried the mic much since I have a dedicated mic, so I can't speak on that.

    My old head set was a Logitech that I bought at Best buy. Just was different model and style and served it's purpose for 7 years. So naturally was looking at Logitech again this time decided on a model that would be an upgrade. People I talk to on skype can hear the difference in quality and clarity of me over the mic as well as I can.hear the difference in the headphone speakers. The range is something I noticed I can go further from pc without interruption, and even a little ways out doors.

    As opposed to its more expensive brother, the G933 Artemis, this headset just feels good. The speaker quality is nice and moving from faux patch leather to cloth allows for ear cover removal and proper cleaning. The only advantage that the Artemis has is dual speaker abilities, but that's it. This headset is half that price for all the same specifications. I was very happy with this headset as my replacement set for my previous pair.

    The sound is crisp, and the base is deep and better than my previous Logitech G930 headset. I really enjoy using these with both gaming and listening to music. I play PUBG, WoW, CSGO, and Fallout 4. The sounds I am able to hear in-game are nuanced and have added depth and a level of play I was missing with 5.1 surround. The battery has held up well and still is around 15 hours even after a year of daily use. This headset is amazing!

    The most important thing you should know about this headset is that the battery is user-replaceable. You can buy the batteries on Logitech's website. The sound quality is decent and never cuts off. The mic works as it should. I can walk to another part of my house and still hear what is going on. The battery lasts about 16 hours according to the Logitech software, and it feels that way. You can use it while it's charging with usb cable it came with.

    I was eyeing this headphones for some time and had trilemma about which one to purchase. I am a big fan of wireless gaming headsets and I owe around 15 different sets of studio and gaming ones. It was fortunate that I decided to grab these ones on sale recently. They are easy to use, the surround sound is superb and they are very lightweight so I don't feel headache after hours of game play. So far I didn't noticed any downsides and I really recommend it to any hard core gamer.
