    TLDR: a couple of minor issues (glitches, weird buttons) but still worth the buy (durable, good quality, customizable, good sound, included cables, good battery, replaceable battery, comfortable). First, this headset is RGB in 2 zones, the "G" on the side and the backward facing ribbons by the earcups. looks good when it is not on my head (i.e. charging), and i cant see it while im wearing it, so its not distracting. 2nd, the battery. charge length is heavily dependant on your RGB settings, if you turn the RGB off or real low you can get about 12 hours of charge out of the headset. With the volume at ~25%, RGB off, in Stereo mode, and muted you can get 14+ hours (with a new battery). With everything on you can expect around 8 hours with everything on. The battery is removable, and hides in the Right earpiece. Replacements are available when you wear them out, and are currently priced around $10 USD. 3rd, Construction. the headset seems solid. The band over the head is metal with a plastic cover and padding for your head. The earpieces swivel to sit flush against your ears. I think it is very comfortable however my ears feel warm after many hours straight (just like with ANY over the ear headset). the headset itself does not get warm and and my ears and headset cool off in just a couple minutes. The mic is sturdy and has a mute function by just pushing it up. there is a telescoping part of the mic if you feel the need to pull the mic further out from its arm. i feel this feature is completely unneeded as I'll explain in the sound section. The Power switch is easy to see and use. but the 4 'programmable buttons' are a little odd. it's sometimes hard to identify which button is which while wearing the headset (at least for me), but the volume is easy and natural. The ear-pieces do swivel 90 degrees (in one direction only) to face out, but is NOT easily worn around the neck. This due to the swivel putting the speakers facing your chest and the size of the ear-pieces. Also the mic may bang into the other side if it is not pushed-up/muted. I think this was done for easy packing or moving to prevent damage from twisting in a bag or suitcase. I love that the covers to the battery and the USB storage slot are magnetic; You don't have to worry about breaking some plastic clip. 4th connection. There is a USB dongle that hides in the left earpiece. The software is not required once you have the drivers installed. Also both the dongle and the headset have a 3.5mm jack to connect another device. if you use the included cable to connect your phone to your headset you may have to turn the headset off and on to redirect the mic from your PC to your phone. The USB dongle's 3.5mm plug pretty much works the same. The Charging cable is also USB and is really long. You can charge and use the headset at the same time, just be careful as you can break the charging port if you forget you are attached. with 12 hours of charge, i just charge each night with my phone. 5 Sound. The headset is 7.1 and windows recognizes it as 7.1 with just the USB dongle. you will only get stereo with the 3.5mm plug. you have the option of DTS or Dolby surround. The headset does a great job of keeping out other sounds. my volume usually sits 22-28%. the mic is high quality and is decent at not picking up the entire room (but settings can change that). With the mic being short you don't have to worry about accidentally breathing on it. Last software. As i stated earlier, the software is not needed, but it lets you customize some things that you may want or need to. The software does cause a few glitches. my headset stopped un-muting. to fix just close out of the Logitech software. The best part is your settings are "saved to device". just customize in the software and then remove the software if you want (or just close it). Other than the random glitch, the software is good, easy to use, and lets you manage all your logitech accessories. Note: i specifically avoided talking about wireless range as that is something that has many variables. and can change drastically. With that being said, I have no complaints on the range and say it is about the same as others, so... good. (I can walk to the end of my driveway but lose signal in the kitchen.)

    Ignore The Bad Reviews. Fantastic Product

    So I want to start by saying this is simply an awesome headset hands down the best I have used thus far. I have used the G930s for the last 2 years and have really enjoyed them, after a pleasurable experience with them I could wait to see what Logitech produced next. I read all of these reviews previous to buying the headset and noticed right off the bat that the people that were writing the reviews must not be able to read instructions. The part I am talking about is that you need to download the logitech gaming software to get these puppies fully operational (all clearly displayed in instructions), however unfortunately these horrible people are giving this new product a bad name because they refuse to be an intelligent being. Alright that is it for my rant... Gaming: WOAH, some of these gun shots sound like they are right there behind me in my room, if you are looking for true immersion throw these guys over your ears and let them suck you in. I tested a few different games with the headset. First was Battlefield 4, countless times I hear the enemy trying to sneak up on me but I heard his footsteps first so I could get him first, truly a game changer. The G933s make you feel like you are on the battlefield, explosions go off with absolutely no distortion and I like to play them LOUD. Next game I played was ARK (a primitive survival game). I was pleased with the performance but did not notice to many differences from my previous G930 headset. Since this game doesnt really involve and crazy explosions or fast paced action the G933s seemed a bit overkill. Music: So as I said before I like things to be REALLY loud and that goes for my music too. first thing I tested was the most bass intensive song I could find, bass boost it more, max volumes and play it. My ears were literally shaking within the muffs. The sound was so crystal clear and absolutely no distortion from heavy bass hits. Compared the previous G930s to the G933s: So in my opinion (20 year old hardcore gamer with a $5k rig) the G933s are worth the expensive price tag. But are going to be truly unnecessary for most people in every department except for bass distortion and connection it seems the new G933s are only slightly better. I would advise checking out the G930s first for most people. The connection is good most of the time with a drop here and there (maybe 1-2 in a 6 hour gaming session, remember 2 years old), as well as the bass not being able to work to the max because distortion will start scratching up the sound. What this means to you: Get this headset if: - You have money to throw around - Bass is important to you - You are a major gamer Get the G930 if: - Need something cheaper that will be 80% as good as this product - dont mind the occasional 3 second connection drop - You dont need much bass Both headsets are absolutely amazing. I hope I helped you make up your mind today and enjoy your new sound! Leave me a comment if you have any questions, I should answer within 24hrs.

    Good audio, bad physical design

    I am now on my 2nd pair. 1st pair was bought in March of this year. Sound quality is good, though when I started to stream, the mic was crackling and popping like no other and I couldnt get it to stop even after a complete system reboot. Had to break out the Yeti after this little snafu. My issue with these headphones lies solely with the design of the headband foam. The headband foam is secured to the band with adhesive as well as 2 little tabs that supposedly assist with keeping the foam piece in place. First off, the tabs are too small and short to where they insert into the band. 2nd, the adhesive starts to get soft depending on how hot it is. One day my hair got pulled when i removed the headset from my head. When inspecting the headset, I noticed my hair was stuck in the headband in the area where the foam had separated from the band. I got in contact with Logitech who right away sent me an RMA to return the headset and I got a replacement a few days later. Now from the time I bought the headset from the time I got a replacement had been 6 months, 6 months for me to notice the issue first time. This time I kept my eye on it, and within 2 weeks the headband foam separated once again. I got in touch with logitech once again and stated that the foam came off again. Again they wanted me to do another RMA, for the same headset. I told them I wanted something else to which they said they can replace G933 with a G533. I declined stating that the G533 is much lower in price to which they then offered me 30% off an item in their store. I looked at the G533 and noticed that the headband was the same design and so declined that offer as well. I searched on the web about this issue and ran across some reddit threads where many users complained about this issue on their headsets as well, both G933 and G533. I asked for a refund but since I already did an RMA and purchased this from Best Buy, a full refund was out of the question. And since it was way past the return window, i could not return to Best Buy. In the end, I decided that I will not be doing another RMA since what;s the point? All I can say that it was a lesson learned. I advise to always buy the protection plans offered by sellers and protect your self from buying expensive shoddily engineered products.

    Comfortable, good sound, versatile

    Let me start by saying I wear headsets for over 10 hours per day between work and gaming. I'm replacing a Logitech G930 headset, and have really enjoyed using that. After two years of daily use and abuse, the G930 was worth every penny I spent on it. I wanted to give Logitech another shake, and some more of my money. Enter the G933 Artemis Spectrum. The color selection allows me to match the lighting to my custom rig and my mechanical keyboard (Corsair K95 RGB), though that really didn't way on my decision in any way, it's a nice bonus. I noticed before purchase that the cushions on the G933 over the earpieces are foam, covered in woven cloth. The cushions over the G930 earpieces are foam wrapped in a thin vinyl. The cloth covering is certainly more comfortable, and is less likely to wear down and flake off the way the G930 pads did. Another quick comparison between the two models: the G933 is a bit lighter, and so should be much better for lengthy use. The sound is exactly what I expect: solid, but not mind-blowing. I'm mostly using these for Skype calls, music, netflix, and a bit of gaming. I can tell you they are perfect for what I do, and I'm sure most folks will feel the same way. There are several connection options: via the usb dongle (wireless), bluetooth, and 3.5mm/RCA. Since I rely on these for work, having a secondary and tertiary connection option is fantastic. Downtime = money lost. There are a few quick things I'd like to point out, as they threw me off for a moment. The instructions that come with this set are pretty terrible; it's basically a poorly drawn diagram on the bottom of the box and a web address for further support. After searching frantically for the usb dongle that I thought I lost or didn't receive, I decided to check inside the earphones. There is a removable cover over the outset of each earpiece. Under the right earpiece cover, there is an easily removable battery (great move by Logitech for end users who want to use the wireless functionality for several years, as batteries wear down over time). Under the cover on the left earpiece is the usb dongle. I can think of several reasons the headset/dongle are packaged this way, but I can think of no reason why this is not explicitly written in the documentation (the crude illustrations on the bottom of the box apparently depict this, but come on.) For PC use, swing over to logitech.com/support/g933 to download and install the PC gaming software, so you can customize settings to your heart's desire. After installing the software, I had to reboot, no big deal. I gave the G933 a quick run through some Spotify music and was a bit let down, honestly. The lesson I learned is this: 7.1 is turned on by default. It is great for gaming, but lackluster when listening to music. I turned it off, and immediately the headset sounded great. All in all, I am very pleased with this purchase, and I'd make it again. Comfort: 10/10 Sound: 8.5/10 Functionality: 10/10

    volume rocker is deal breaker

    This is my first over the head head phone. I still am struggling to get to use to of this product as i always used in ear headphones. This seems very bulky but most of over the head headphones are like this i guess. The software that comes with this is just ok because this is not a very high end headphone so i don't want to waste lot of time to understand controls via software (just remember that practically you only use 10% of software options rest is junk for 95% buyers). I only like two options in software, one you can assign different options of your choice to 3 keys (although i only find 4 or 5 options that you would be interested in. rest are useless to 95% user i bet) and second is equalizer setting. i've 3 settings assigned to top key like vocal, music and miscellaneous etc. RGB lights are just pleasing for first hour then you don't even look at it. And btw you are not able to see RGB lights when headphone is on your head coz lights are at the back therefore, i would pay less if there is any version without RGB lights. Sound is ok. I like my wired earphones more that came with my Samsung S9+. This headphone isn't a big difference in sound but i believe this is true for any headphone of this range. It's not cheap though. Now about deal breaking. I watch or play games on recliner or sitting on the ground and keep my head back on headrest. The volume rocker is exactly there where you touch your head back to the headrest and doesn't matter how many angles you change, head rest is gonna hit volume rocker and changing volume all the time. What a thoughtless design. Moreover the style and position of buttons are so wierd that after a couple of weeks i still am not able to locate right button in first attempt. I've to check multiple buttons to make sure the position of right one, and i am not a noob but an IT guy. I'd definitely not buy this product because of these annoying things. I'll update after a year or so about durability and performance. It's firm on head and don't fell down if you tilt your head back as shown in one you-tube video. But it's heave and bulky, at least for me and probably it's because i never used over the head headphones. Response time is good. I can't tell about battery life as i put it on charging occasional so battery never dies. Over all this product is ok in look and use if you are not touching your head to headrest. It' expensive and should be much cheaper but everything is expensive these days or i'd say everything is overpriced these days. I needed mic therefore i had to buy this type of headset. Mic is kinda cool. I'd update about mic later. So if you are not worried about touching your head to headrest then i'd recommend this product but otherwise i don't.

    Other than the new G-Hub software thats questionable. This headset works great for the price. The sound out of it is just how other reviewers put it, amazing and surprising, though i will say, set your settings in the app and save it to the device, then disable the software app to prevent it from artificially limiting the volume and sound output (although i now see why they do it, to increase battery life, but still.) The headset sounds significantly better once your custom profile is set and you use the headset exclusively without the software. Though, without the software on, the headset will drain the battery a bit faster (from my count i'd say at least 8 hours from 12, depending on your level of volume, however, 100% volume will now be 100% instead of like 75% with its software cap Lastly, the one downside to this headset, which is really kind of a deal breaker is the fact the microphone is really really poor. I have a razer headset, and really, my laptop's mic sound better than this, when you are doing anything besides voice chat. (though i guess, this mic is just made for that specifically.) Discord on this is fine, same with skype or really any applications that synthesize your voice to sound better. Using any narration applications, like Camtasia Studio for example will result in an undesired experience simply due to the poor audio you get from the mic. This alone would make me want to buy a Blue Yeti, or something more to clip onto this headset, but overall this is why i knocked off a star. If i could TRULY rate this headset i'd give it a 2.5/5 Because: It has great sound It has great software support It has really good flexibility It for the price has an internal battery which can be a bad thing It for the price does not have a great microphone which can put off a lot of people looking for one device to plug in and do everything. And its battery life could be longer, however i can see 12 hours being an okay setting for someone whom is moderately active and not sitting at their desk all day (and if you are sitting at your desk all day, I would recommend the wired version. Oh, about range. It isn't that great once you factor in a few things. If you are like me, having a desktop tower on the floor and you plug the headset in the BACK of your PC instead of using a USB port up front, you will cut your 15 meters of range by a healthy margin. Honestly i'm not sure how they (Logitech) managed to get 15 meters, as having the dongle plugged into the back of my PC, makes the range about 10 feet, if that. Which in my opinion isn't that great, but if you have a range extender that might be better. One feature that i wish existed on this headset would be the ability to use it, wired with the USB cable. Oddly enough you cannot do this whatsoever. Plugging it into the PC results in the PC setting it up as a secondary device but only to "charge" Which ultimately makes having the cable plugged into the PC useless as you're mainly using the wireless dongle almost all the time, every time. You still have access to the 3.5mm port to use at the same time, however it would of been nice to have that functionality.

    I was looking for a new headset now that the PC is in the bedroom and having my Bose speakers on is now not an option. Wanted a comfortable headset I could use for 2-3 hours at a time while I mess around on the computer or game. After looking at several products available at my local Best Buy I decided on these. My first thought when I opened the box are these things look great. It's a nice futuristic look and the weight seems just right. The padding on the ears fits my giant ears perfectly and have had zero issues after many hours of use. While the cushion on the top is pretty hefty I wish it was either a different material or thicker. My only real complaint is that after an hour or so the top of my head gets a little sore. Maybe it's just me. So overall the fit is 4 of 5. The sound is where this thing excels. The first thing I did with these was run a game of Fortnite to see how they would handle. The sound of footsteps drove me nuts. I was hearing things everywhere. I was completely unaware that the sound in this game could be this good. Volume is good with a nice volume rocker on the left side of the headset for easy of use. Easily 5 of 5 for sound. Range of the wireless headset. So, I live in a two story apartment. I needed a break in my gaming (Fortnite with a friend) and walked downstairs to get a soda. I left the room, walked down the stairs, through the living room, through the dining area and into the kitchen. I was able to receive audio and speak to my friend the entire time. Great range. 5 of 5. Miscellaneous things. The braided power cord is a strong and lengthy cable. Wearing the headset with the cable attached is uncumbersome and hardly noticeable. Also, a nifty (at least I think so) is that when you have the mic extended and you mute it, a red light appears at the end of the mic so you can tell that you're no longer sending audio. I enjoy the headset and would recommend it to anyone looking for a wireless/wired great sounding headphones.

    When it actually works... it's great

    TL;DR version: Outstanding headset, great features, good battery life. Surround sound actually sounds like surround sound, not a cheap knock off. Audio clarity/quality is fantastic. However, I need to have my headset replaced due to the "stuck in sleep mode" issue because the battery won't charge anymore due to the software thinking the headset is powered off or in sleep mode. If you get this headset, make sure to get the 2 year GS replacement plan, just in case. However, I was an early adopter so the firmware in my headset could be all jacked up due to the changes. I'll be exchanging my headset at my local BB and will update my long version after I've had the new one for a few months. ----- The long version: ----- The surround sound, clarity, and features on this headset are awesome.... when it works. I'm getting the dreaded sleep issue. I got the headset when it first game out (I should've known better than to be a first adopter). I went from a set a Turtle Beach PX3s to this headset. For the positive things, there's a WORLD of difference in clarity and sound. The lowest are deep and mellow, the mids are full, and the highs are crisp and clear. The surround sound feature is fantastic. It's immersive and really feels like the sound is "in your head". The on board eq is very customizable and you can even program an eq for each game on your PC using the logitech software. It's easy to mute/unmute your mic simply by retracting the boom and flipping it up/storing it in the headset. I find this much easier than trying to hunt for the mute button by feel on the back of the left ear cup. Speaking of the ear cups, they are comfortable over long gaming sessions. Long Raids in WoW/LoTRo, hours of Rocket League, other steam games, this headset doesn't really get uncomfortable for me until the batteries start dying from being at a full charge. The ear cups rotate and fold flat so you can hang the headset around your neck instead of having to worry about the headset falling off your head while you are afk. I read reviews before purchasing this headset and I tend to get 6-10 hours out of the headset with the lights set to cyan pulse. The color rotating setting makes the battery die faster and of course, if the effects lights are off you get an extra hour or two. Now, to address my issues. I've had to reset the headset due to the sleep setting over ten times now. I got the 2 year geek squad replacement plan, so I'm going to go get a replacement tonight. I've reflashed the firmware on the headset several times using the Logitech approved method and using command line firmware upgrades. At first, the firmware flash fixed it and the new firmware has a feature to disable the sleep setting. However, my headset loses connectivity to the USB dongle if I go out of the house near the pool to take the dogs to the restroom (about 150 ft through several walls). The range is fairly good on the headset, as I generally don't lose it until I'm on the far side of the house or outside. So the range is fantastic. However, my best guess is it lost it's settings when I went out of range. Went I went back inside, it had the dreaded "stuck in sleep mode" issue again. Eventually, I gave up trying to factory reset it and just dealt with the headset only being a headset and a mic, no special features, no surround sound. Now, the eternal sleep mode on the software is keeping my headset from charging, so I have to have it constantly plugged in, which defeats the point of it being wireless. ***NOTE: I'm going to my local BB to have my headset replaced tonight and hopefully I'll have better luck with my next headset. I had one of the original headsets before Logitech updated their firmware to add the feature to disable sleep mode and the firmware upgrade never really seemed to take effect well since my headset had already encountered the sleep issue. Also, yes, before anyone flames me, I did the factory reset with the battery removed to eliminate any settings staying in the memory on the headset. I REALLY like the headset, the features really are fantastic for the price and with the price drop to $130ish recently, it's definitely a good buy. I bought it at the original $200 price and felt a little cheated when the USB dongle wouldn't work with my PS4. Well, it "worked", but the mic wouldn't work. For the mic to work you have to hardwire to the controller. Also, no, I don't primarily use this on my PS4, I use it on my PC, but I just wanted to see if it would work. Anyways, I cannot truly say if I "recommend" this headset yet until I see if I just got a headset that got screwed up from the sleep mode/firmware issues. Hopefully the replacement will perform better. I'll update my review after I've had my new headset for a few months.

    Best headphones for less than -$150

    I come from the turtle beach elite 800 , turtle beach stealth 700 and the astros a20. The sound and comfort are by far the best on these headphones than anything else out there, I ended up purchasing the Astros A50’s because it just has more features that I need it (charging dock, Dolby,) but I wished Logitech had them. Logitech if you are reading this, please make some headphones with all the settings available like , Bluetooth, touch buttons, charging dock, keep the lights, Optical for PS4, and even optional leather cups... if you had that , you’ll take all the money. The lights look really cool, and you have the ability to change them and customized them. The bass is deep enough for long hours of shooting games or racing games. I used these for Fortnite and Rocket league. On fortnite I was able to hear footsteps very clearly along with the Exact direction, my gameplay definitely improved thanks to these. I gave them to my son and he is the happiest kid alive right now. For someone looking for headphones for less than $150 or even for your kids, these are the ones for you, I was able to get them for $99 on sale, and they are perfect for everyday gaming sessions, battery last a long time as well. The mic quality is really good, no complains from friends and you get a nice audio feedback from you voice so you are not shouting. You also have the ability to mute the mic with a button or flip it up for convenience. I was comparing these with the Steelseries 5 and 7 but these sound better and they are wireless with lights. Get them on sale, or price match them, they are worth it.

    Good with a few drawbacks

    I'm not a heavy headset user when gaming - mostly I only use one when I get on with friends and we want to voice chat, which is really only once a week at most. Given that, I wasn't exactly in the market for a new set, but one of the things that annoys the most when using my current set is the darn wire - it constantly gets in the way, catches on my armrest, gets rolled over by my chair; it's just a pain. So when I saw an unbeatable sale on this wireless G933, I felt like giving it a shot, and I mostly haven't been disappointed. First off, sound quality is excellent - I can hear things in-game that I never heard with my Logitech 5.1 speaker system. The microphone is also really good, from what I'm told. My friends say I sound great on their end while using Discord for chatting, and I really like that I can mute it by simply flipping it up. Connection is flawless - I simply plug in the USB adapter and Windows automatically switches sound from my speakers to the headphone, and back to speakers when I unplug the adapter. There doesn't appear to be any lag in the wireless connection, and the lack of any wires to snag or roll over is a dream come true! There are a few drawbacks, though. First, the headset is very tight, making it uncomfortable to use for very long - there's a lot of pressure against my ears and jaw line that's just not good. I'm hoping that with some more use it will loosen a bit, but for right now I just can't use it for very long without getting a headache from the pressure. The next issues I have are with the Logitech software. First, sometimes it doesn't detect the headphones when I plug in the adapter, even if I turn them off and on. I have to shut down the software and start it back up in order for it to detect the headset properly, which is a pain. Second, I have yet to find any difference in any of the audio settings - playing around with the equalizer settings doesn't seem to make any difference in sound at all; neither does switching between the surround sound modes. I may be doing something wrong, but I've cycled through all the preset EQ modes while listening to audio without any change in output - I even created a new EQ profile with extreme settings but heard literally no change. I'm really not sure what's going on with it. My final issue is with the battery life, particularly the standby time. On a full charge the software tells me I can get about 8 hours of life with the lights turned off, which is fine given that I use the headset sparingly. But when the headset goes to sleep I'd expect a much longer standby time than I'm getting - in standby, on a full charge, the headset was completely drained by the second day. I'd expect better power conservation in sleep mode, but it is what it is; for now I'm just powering it off when I finish using it, and that seems to work fine. Overall, if you're a hardcore gamer that needs to use headphones a lot, then I'd highly recommend this for the audio quality and wireless convenience. If you're more casual with your headset use and are put off by the G933's price tag, then I'd wait for a good sale, or go with cabled model like the G633 or G630.

    First off I love this headset. I have the G910 keyboard and the syncing between the light settings and macro configuration in the Logitech software is great. The white trim, not too outspoken form factor and lighting styles are elegant and not too loud like other gaming gear tends to be. The sound quality both incoming and outgoing from the Mic and the customization and eq settings get pretty in-depth. I love the fact that both physx and Dolby digital 7.1 modes are included; however, I find the physx surround sound setting has a bit too much echo; especially, when I listen to music. But that is personal preference. The Dolby 7.1 is perfect for me. The ear cuffs are comfortable and the weight feels just right. The only "problems" I've had are when I plug in the headset with a charging cable the lighting takes on a bright blue pulsing glow. This is only an issue if I want to charge it overnight as my computer is in my bed room and the light illuminates my bed room. I just cover it with a shirt as I haven't figured out if the charging light setting can be adjusted. Everything else can be though. The only other issue I have run into is that when I use the headset with Discord and I put up the Mic to mute myself most times if I leave myself muted too long then discord fails to pick up my voice again. I either have to disconnect from the call and reconnect or mute unmute in the Logitech software suite for my voice to be heard again. Have no idea why that happens and I just mute myself using discord itself to avoid that but it is still pretty annoying. Only happens with Discord too which is weird. Other then those two gripes the headset has been great and even performs wonderfully on the PS4. Your sound and light settings can even be saved on the pc app and they will be utilized while on console. They do work in wireless mode on PS4 and the audio mixing from multiple sources is superb. Great headset from Logitech. Starting to become a fan.

    The best Logitech has made.

    Hello all! I have an important announcement to make about the Logitech G933 headset. I love it more than my G930 headset. The quality of the sound is great and I couldn't believe the experience you get to test out with the surround sound. I also have reasons to why I do not enjoy them though so if you want to hear about those scroll to the bottom. I am a big time Video gamer on my PS4 and PC. I play games like the Witcher 3, League of Legends, Ratchet and Clank (PS4), Overwatch. Without a doubt this headset is superb and the most ideal for giving as a gift to your kids or friends. The headset has a boat load of different configurations that help out anyone. If your like me and you edit videos for big top companies and want to hear audio off of a flat grounded audio these work better that others. Play FPS games like counter strike? There's an FPS mode in there for them to enhance your hearing experience. Watch movies? Well guess what! You can adjust it to movies too! It's that adaptable. I take these with me literally on every road trip I take. Since I have to travel a lot I have to have wireless headphones for comfort. The headphones came with a clean sleek disigne that makes them not too ridiculous to luggage around on a plane. Logitech also thankfully made it easy to access the battery inside of the headset through the right ears back plate and have a storage for your USB adapter on the left ears back plate. The back plates were also designed to be interchangeable as they clip on with a pretty strong magnet. If your someone that likes having a light show then these headphones have a full color wheel of interchangeable colors for you to choose through (using the Logitech gaming app). There you can change the pulse rate or consistency of the colors to multiple ranges. The kinks... Ugh!!!! Currently to this date I have yet to find a good headset that makes people sound actually good. When I say good I don't mean by my personal opinion but I mean it by the media's social opinion as the headset is not gonna cut it if you want to do anything like streaming, recording, or using Skype without sounding like your on a bland phone call. That alone doesn't bug me but it is something that should be changed in the future but hey that's what external mic's are for. Lastly and I know this isn't something to cry about but the headphones do not install the Logitech Gaming Software on their own. As a matter of fact I wouldve never known about the headphones and Logitech Gaming Software if it hadn't of been for my curiosity. That may also be why people still believe the surround sound doesn't work. It does work but it's a bit tedious to find and download as for whatever reason Logitech hides it or doesn't offer it as a driver for any of their headsets by default. Anyways I hope this helped out someone buy this product. It's really good if your willing to look over those tiny problems.

    Purchased these as my PC only headphones. Hooked them up, got everything working on my new Windows 10 PC. Everything seemed great, sound was good, headphones were comfortable, wireless or wired, cool lights I never use, flip down mic that picks up my voice great. Then the headset went into sleep mode. That is when everything started to crumble. The headset would go into sleep mode weather plugged in or not to save power. Seems like a good idea, except then the mic software disconnects and I had to completely shut down the PC in order to get it to work again. Talk about an unnecessary pain. Called Logitech support and a guy got online to help fix the issue. Seemed very nice and worked with me to get this functioning properly as he said this seemed like an isolated issue. Long story short, we sort of fixed the problem. At least I do not have to reboot or shut down the PC to get them to work, but now when the PC is turned on, or the headphones go into sleep mode the mic still mutes. I can now just go into my Logitech Gaming Software and unmute it and it works. A bit of a pain, and why I did not give them 5 stars. Software should not mute the mic and it just seems weird. Overall if I removed the issue with the mic, I have enjoyed these headphones. I have used Turtle beach Elite800, XP500 and Tritton AX 720 PRO headsets. As far as comparing these, comfort the logitech are great, better than the Turtle Beaches and are on par with the Tritton's. Sound I would say they are pretty good, not as good at the others, but they are $100 cheaper than all of them and if you have not used a high end $300 headset, these will sound awesome. If you have used a $300 headset, you will give up some sound quality but not $100 less in sound quality in my opinion, so you are getting a pretty good deal.

    Excellent headset with good sound in multiple area

    The Logitech G633 is in my honest opinion the perfect headset for Gamer who want to have a good headset that is not only for games. Aesthetic: The headsets look amazing, it has a very premium design too it and does not go all out with typical gaming frills like giant microphones, ridiculous color schemes and some weird build which makes it almost impossible go outside with them. The mic looks nice and sleek and the LED lights can be controlled meaning you will have this nice black headphone. Build Quality: While it is true that the headphones are light and have a plastic feel to it, this does not translate into very fragile headphones. I have owned the Logitech G930s for six years and they have taken ridiculous beatings yet still survived. I only expect the G633 to be better in build quality. Remember this is Logitech, a company that has a reputation of building good lasting products. Audio: Audio wise I would call the G633 hitting the sweat spot. Comparing it with my AKG Q702s the audio has a noticeable emphasis on bass and while that does annoy me a bit (I am a bit of a audiophile) it makes sense as a lot of gaming audio are heavy in bass. Microphone: Microphone is really good, probably the only reason I actually got this headphones over others because I know that no matter what I can always count on Logitech to have one of the best built in microphones. Bad things: - While this is by far one of my favorite headphones there is also quite a lot of bad things about it. The magnetically attached side things are a nice feature but they are not as held that sturdy making it so that sometimes if I drop my headphones on the floor the side panels fall out. - The software is kind of annoying. This is the first time I had any problem with the logitech gaming software, this is because it's really annoying when I scroll volume (on PC) and it makes a sound for every scoll I make and it kinds of annoying how every time I move my mic from mute to un-mute it makes this noise (personal thing) - the G buttons are also really annoyingly placed as due to its placement and how hard it is to initiate a press (quite a bit of pressure to create contact) I dont think I will ever use these macro buttons for gameplay - the audio and mini usb ports are also pretty hard to slot into for my model at least making me worried as I am worried about how the mini usb might break the. Despite my many negative point about the headsets I am still satisfied worthy of a five star from me. This is because these headsets are worth more than just a gaming headset. These headphones are worth every penny I spent and I hope they keep making headphones of such wualities.

    Amazing headset

    Posted
    ChaosCultist

    I'm probably a bit biased as I've never had a truly good headset, but the g933 is incredible. You know how in a good quality movie theatre there's the deep rumbling bass, uber good treble and just great sound in general, to the point that it's almost overwhelming? This is that in a pair of headphones. I was blown away by the range and depth of the sound. The customizer program allows you to make it perfect for you. I love deep rumbling base and this takes the cake. The "bells and whistles" are more than just that, like the foldaway mic and removable side panels that house the USB dongle and replaceable battery are infinitely useful, especially the USB stick storage. The battery life is pretty good, I get a solid 10-11 hours without RGB lighting, about 7-8 hours with lighting. It has pretty good range, and the way it folds inward is probably the best feature. Without that it's extremely uncomfortable to wear around the neck, it practically chokes you, but since they fold inwards to rest on your chest it makes these very comfortable as well as aesthetically pleasing. The wireless feature is definitely worth the extra $30, do yourself a favor and get the wireless. You can always plug in the 3.5mm (to the outlet or the USB dongle itself as it also has a 3.5mm jack) cord if you prefer. Also a little known feature is the USB wireless actually does work on the PS4(or so I've been told) but does not on the Xbox/mobile. I'd like to give it 4.5 stars as Bluetooth would make it truly incredible, but it's almost asking too much with how great it already is. There are also a few pointy edges like where the band extenders meet and the where microphone extends. But this is negligible as the corners can't actually touch your head at all. And they're not sharp enough to cut you or anything, just a bit pointy. I've had very little problems with the headset slipping off if I lean back. You can feel it weighing down and it could slip with a nudge but it stays in place rather well, for me at least. It was a bit of a tight fit at first, but once you wear it in after a couple days it's VERY comfortable!! That cheesy line "you'll forget you're even wearing it" that all headsets have is actually true here. So stick with it if it's a bit tight at first as it'll become extremely comfortable soon enough :) Overall I can't recommend this headset enough. It's not as great as the $250+ headsets, but it comes very, very close. And for the price you just can't beat it. The design and aesthetics are fantastic. You won't be disappointed!

    I tried these and returned them, as I couldn't get myself to like them. They are comfortable, light, and have a lot of potentially good features. But there is a not ready for prime time feeling with them that I never escaped. The first strike on these products is that the documentation is atrocious, requiring hours of internet searching to figure out basics like how to update the firmware. I never did actually update it since I'd decided to return it by the time I found the probable answer. On a related note, the software that you use to update the firmware, and to use many features of the phones, is hard to use, poorly documented, and extremely finicky, sometimes requiring extremely complicated workarounds when it fails to detect a device that it should have no problem detecting. The headphones have one feature that is potentially great but didn't work for my setup: you can use the USB dongle with an RCA input and thereby stream from any device with an RCA output to the headphones. (Key note: the device you want to stream from needs an RCA out, not an RCA in, for this to work.) But you can't use a 3.5 output jack to stream audio in this way, and far more products have 3.5 outs than RCA outputs. (For example, my TV has a 3.5 jack but no RCA outputs: not logitech's fault, of course, but it greatly impeded the device's usefulness to me.) A similar product, the Arctis 7 headphones, has a similar feature but its USB dongle has a 3.5 line-in instead of RCA connector (side note: The Arctis 7 is great and I would recommend it over this product.) Another issue I had with this device is that the headphones seem to "lose" some of the sounds from the original source, possibly as a side effect of the 7.1 surround sound processing. For example while playing Civ VI the phones would play the music and most of the game sounds, but when my archers attack i don't hear them let loose their arrows. I tried turning the surround sound off to see if this helped but the button that ostensibly turns it off did not seem to actually do anything, and in any event pushing that button did not restore the missing sounds. It is possible that a firmware update would have helped with the missing sounds, but at this point I was so frustrated with the product that I gave up.

    Very good but shy of the great Corsair Pro

    I bought this and the Corsair Void Pro after reading reviews and listening to in-store demos. After weeks of using them both I returned these and went with the (cheaper) Corsair Void Pro. tl;dr The LG has a great design and style but loses a star on actual audio/mic performance. The Corsair Pro simply performs better all the way around and is more comfortable (and cheaper). PROS: - Fantastic design. The mic extends/retracts into the headset frame. The wireless stick even fits inside the headset for storage. - RGB color options and design. The best looking headset on the market. Many color options and the lights are all over the headset for much styling. - Good surround sound. Good for hearing footsteps around/above you in FPS. - Macro buttons on the headset. Not sure how that would be convenient but it'll benefit someone. CONS (why I returned it): - Sound was not as good as the Corsair. The Corsair has a frequency range beyond that of the LG. Both in lower and higher hertz ranges. This means better bass and crisper highs/treble. - Mic has static. The mic is not crisp and clear but you can be heard. Not for biz meetings though. The Corsair is simply more crisp and clear. - Comfort. After more than an hour I needed to reposition the LG more than once to avoid physical pressure on my ears. The Corsair feels lighter and has better padding for comfort. - Range. The LG will not reach more than maybe 25 ft away or through maybe(!) two walls. Could be a limitation of the compact wireless dongle. The Corsair Pro (only the Pro) has a USB base that the USB dongle plugs into to increase its range. It is def noticeable.

    Gread sound, poor mic and mediocre battery life

    I purchased this on thanksgiving and returned it after one week. I just feel like I need to say sth to let you guys reconsider of buying this. -Pros: The sound is the best part of this headset, they r loud&clear, 7.1 worked well too. It is pretty good for fps games. (tested with r6s) Wireless connection is easy to setup. You can store the connect stick inside the headset so you don't have to looking for it everywhere while you need it. -Cons The microphone's base noise is very loud even with the noise cancellation on. I have to switch to my old headset (steelseries arctis 5) to discord with my friends because they couldn't take the noise anymore. (btw if you want good mic on a gaming headset, go with steelseries) The battery life is not impressive. You get 8 hrs "gaming mode" with full charge. For me, the time is a little bit to short, because I like keep using headset after gaming, the battery life is just not good enough for me. Material feels cheap. The plastic on sides of the headset is very thin. Headband is also plastic, feels very stiff. This headset is not comfortable to wear. it's kind of funny that as the heaviest headset I bought, is also the smallest one. Due to the stiff plastic, this headset is not very wide, if you got a big head, pass this one. And the ones who have big ears should also pass, cause for a giant headset like this, the earpads are not large enough. The headband is the worst. Foam is so hard that it is actually painful while you put it on,even for just 1 hour. So over all, I do not recommend this. If you are a casual gamer that don't spend much time on gaming and don't need to voice chat this might be an ok headset. As a headset got a look that screams "gaming", it is not for actual gamers.

    Great Headset for Gamers

    Logitech has great quality headsets. This is my first real Logitech gaming headset and I'm impressed. My last headset was a SADES bought off of amazon with 7.1, due to wear and tear i wanted a new headset. 1.. Quality- Logitech always in my opinion had really great quality and this is no exception, From sound to mic its all really nice, the :Led's are also nice and i can sync the color effects to my logitech mouse. 2. Mic/Audio. What blew me away was the level of base this headset can produce on their virtual 7.1 drivers. There are different Audio profiles to chose from and can even customize equalizers or choose from a set list when you use Logitech Gaming Software. My last headset was 7.1, but Logitech really delivered. Now the mic, i really love the hide away mic so its not something thats sticking out all the time and the auto mute feature when u raise the mic is quite nice, Sound and noise cancellation are both great, Not overly sensitive but you can adjust to your liking in the software. 3, Comfortably- I have a larger head and was kind of skeptical at first when i bought the headset. The store i went to had it on display but the headset was broken so i couldn't properly try it on. But i bought it on a whim, and was really surprised, It fit perfectly! has really nice sliding adjustments and can tailor it to your head.. The ear cups have a tilting feature that helps relieve pressure on certain points so it has a secure fit. Only gripe is atleast with my head it has a tendency to slide but i think thats due to the top head cushion, but its nothing thats make or break, just a slicker material. Overall: I say its a fantastic product, Now the only reason i docked a star is because ive recently encountered a minor annoyance, Every time i plug wireless headset in with the charging cable im prompt with a Firmware update to latest frimware. I dont know how to stop it but, by closing out of it (Hitting the red X) until its gone and restarting Logitech gaming software it doesnt come back until i unplug the headset. Again its a minor annoyance im experiencing, and this was after a fresh install of windows. Other then that its great.

    Great for PC, Not recommended for Xbox 1 or PS4

    First the good, Headphones sound significantly better than my afterglow stereo headphones! The rechargeable battery for this headphone is replaceable, which means you don’t have to toss out this headphones once this battery dies! The build quality feels good, and the joints for the headphones are not stiff. I love the lighting on it! The USB transmitter works on some TV brands! Plug it in, and the USB is streaming audio from the TV directly to your headphones! Now for the bad. This is not a surround sound headphone, which is the reason why I bought this in the first place. Per Logitech, the virtual surround sound is supported on PC only. (source: community.logitech.com/s/question/0D53100005idU7uCAE/g933-samsung-tv-and-xbox-one) Connecting it to an Xbox 1, PS4 or a sound system entertainment center will only produce stereo sound! If you are looking for a true surround sound headphones, then you’ll have to move on to the higher end Astro A50s or for the Xbox one players, the Turtle beach Elite since it also supports wireless chat. (Both headphones are sold at Best Buy) This headphone is definitely not worth $199, but I got mines on sale (8/5/17) fir $124.00 at Best Buy, so I am contemplating on if I should keep it for my Alienware notebook. Mostly likely, I will return it for the Astro A50 so that I can have surround sound on my Gaming PC ,PS4 and Xbox 1. Performance The headphones did perform well for Call of Duty and Counter Strike:GO. I could heard sounds very clearly, and I swear, I heard sounds in the game which I could not hear from my Afterglow headphones. The Headphone really struggled with games highly dependent on directional sounds, like Rainbow 6: Siege. For the 3 games above, the bass sound (e.g. explosions) seems to be weak compared to my 2 year old Afterglow Headphones. So if you’re a bass head, you might not be happy with this headphone. Why did I give it a two star? The product packaging the and the documentation miss led me to think I would have true surround sound on my PS4 and Xbox one. Another issue is that the product packaging didn’t mention that it was virtual surround, not true surround sound from the PC.
