    The Logitech G935 is close enough to perfect that I am giving it 5 stars. The headphones cups enclose my ears so well that the noise isolation works almost like noise canceling. The Logitech G935s are not bluetooth. They connect via wireless using a USB dongle which is discretely tucked behind a headphone (see picture). The G935s pair instantly and on a PC, PS4, or Switch (docked) you have an instant wireless connection with no need for drivers. Xbox doesn't support wireless in my tests but it works well via the included audio cable plugged into the Xbox controller. Sound is great. Deep rich base and good mid to highs. The Dolby sound is impressive and really improves games. On a PC the Logitech G Hub software lets you customize the colors and G keys - although I didn't really need to customize the buttons. SUMMARY OF WHAT THE G935 WORKS WITH PC - Wireless via USB Dongle PS4 - Wireless via USB Dongle PS4 - Corded via Headphone Port on Controller Switch - Wireless via USB Dongle in Switch Dock Switch - Corded when Portable out of Dock Xbox - Corded ONLY via Headphone Port on Controller The Logitech G935 is a great headset.

    I've not owned any headsets prior to this unit, but I'll attest to their sound quality being quite impressive. I bought these units only for PC gaming and they work quite well for that function. The only negative I'll note is that the ear cups do feel quite warm on your head during extensive use - this is due to the material the pads are constructed from.

    Great wireless PC headset with extra features

    This G935 headset has exceeded my expectations. Set up is quick and easy. The included usb dongle is plug and play with Windows 10, and is easily stored in the right ear-cup for travel. The Windows G Hub software makes configuration of this headset quick and easy, along with all of the other Logitech G gaming products. The RGB lighting on the headset is a nice feature, though it does reduce battery life. I personally disable the lighting to squeeze extra usage time, but charging is painless through the included micro-usb cable. The microphone feels sturdy and is sensitive for clear audio. I really appreciate the flip-up to mute feature, which makes drinking or having a side conversation easier during use. There is also a physical mute button on the back of the left ear cup. One feature of the G935 that surprised me, is the included 3.5mm audio cable allows this headset to be used with XBox, PS4, and Switch. I tested it on my XBox One X and can confirm the headset and mic worked well for XBox Live. You are unable to use this headset wirelessly with gaming consoles, but having a quality spare wired headset in a pinch is definitely a nice bonus.

    Best Sounding Headset at a Great Price

    This headset was tested on a gaming PC, PS4, and Xbox One X. ---SETUP--- The setup for the G935 is simple for the PC and all consoles as a plug and play headset. Installing the software allows you to customize your headset a bit further. ---FEATURES--- The key feature is the wireless option, but that is only for the PC. The consoles require you to use the included auxiliary cable. It can be color-synced with other Logitech products, like a keyboard and mouse, and that feature works seamlessly. ---PERFORMANCE--- PC The performance on was outstanding. I tested this headset wirelessly for a good 10 hours of gameplay and I didn' lose power. The sound is phenomenal. I am deaf on my right ear, but even playing at low level of volume, the large 50mm Pro-G drivers would vibrate enough for me to "feel" that I was getting shot at from the right side, making my reaction time faster than with other headsets. In regards to the microphone, all my friends told me I sounded louder (in a positive way) and clearer. PS4 On PS4, I was able to use the headphone with the auxiliary cable connected to the headset and the controller. At first, I had an issue where I wasn't able to hear party chat but I was able to hear the game. I fixed this issue by connecting the cable ends opposite of the way I had the first time. Don't really know why this fixed the issue, as both ends have the 3 ring circle connection required for a microphone to work. I also discovered that just by connecting the headset without turning it on, you can hear you gameplay. You just need to turn it on for the full surround sound and the mic chat. Everything I mentioned in the PC performance applies here as well. Xbox One This is the console I was planning on using it the most, but as it turned out, I couldn't get the mic to work. I connected the cable the way that I do my many other headsets that I have, using the auxiliary cable. I do have a chatpad connected to my Xbox One Elite controller and the audio worked but not the mic. I removed the chatpad and connected it directly to the controller and I would hear sound, but the mic wasn't working. I switched to a normal Xbox One controller and the mic didn't work either. I own 7 other headsets and I tried them all on my Xbox controller. The headsets that I already owned worked fine with audio and party chat. I was disappointed that I couldn't use chat, but I might still use it for single player games on Xbox. ---EXPECTATIONS--- The product meets my expectations in all aspects with a few exceptions. The fact that mic didn't work on my Xbox was slightly disappointing, but I decided that this will be my main PC headset, so not a big deal-breaker. The software is simple to understand but there is supposed to be a G-Shift option so that the three customizable buttons can turn into 6 customizable buttons (think of it like an FN key on a keyboard). I couldn't get that to work properly. I customized one of the buttons to tell me the percentage of battery left, but it never told me anything. I do like that one option is to turn off surround sound quickly, which is great if you own Dolby Atmos and want to watch a movie that supports it. ---VALUE--- The price for the G935 headset in terms of value is comfortable, considering the only other pair of wireless headsets that I own for consoles and PC cost me almost double than what these cost. ---APPROVAL--- I highly recommend this product for people who will mainly use it wirelessly for their gaming PC or with their PS4. Unless an update fixes the Xbox issue mentioned above, I suggest that if you plan on strictly using them on Xbox, for you to hold off on them. Overall, though, they are the best sounding headset I have used to date.

    These wireless headphones are amazing! Compared to other headphones that I have used before, the sound quality of these are awesome for gaming and everyday personal use. For myself, this includes PC and Xbox (for console, you do have a wire to connect to the console remote). Although the quality of sound on these are great, I really like the customized RGB+ lighting you can do. In order to customize the RGB+ settings, you do have to install some Logitech software, but if you have other products of Logitech, you can actually "sync" your colors so that everything matches up (I did this with my computer mouse), which is pretty convenient. This software also allows you to customize sound settings and color settings across the board, or you can customize for each individual game you play (on PC). Comfortableness-wise, I do think that these headphones could be a little more comfy around the ears. While the headset can be adjusted for larger heads, such as myself, the material used for the "over the ear" would be more comfortable if it had a little extra cushion or if it was made with a softer material. Additionally, I do think the "quality" of the headphones could be a little better. The side panels and the "on/off" button on top function as they should, but I think the material used here could also be improved. Make no mistake though, these headphones are as durable as others I have used. Overall, pretty good headphones and ones that I have enjoyed, and will continue to enjoy using.

    Best sounding headphones I may have ever had

    My son and I love these headphones!! Logitech just keeps raising the bar when it comes to gaming accessories and they have outdone themselves with these headphones. Right out of the box, they look so cool! They are very comfortable and connecting to PC via bluetooth or console with a cord is a breeze! We love the flip-up mute and how you can change the color of the lights! The real winner here is the sound. it is INCREDIBLE!! The 7.1 surround sound is amazing! It's like you are totally immersed in the game and can even hear sounds behind you!! I even use these headphones to listen to music and watch movies!! The sound is crystal clear and full bodied. You cannot help but be impressed. What an impressive product.

    Wireless, but not for console

    After opening these headphones I was super excited to have a nice wireless set of headphones that was console compatible and also works with my PC. There are 2 areas which align to my overall rating of these headphones. 1 - The sound for these headphones are very sold, the base is deep and the treble is crisp. The microphone on the headset also snaps up and out of the way everytime you chose not to use it. The design overall of these headphones is very nice and purposely designed for gaming. 2 - As mentioned above, I was pumped for headphones that were compatible with my gaming console. I was wrong, and after trying to sync the headphones for nearly 30 minutes I finally took to the internet which told me it was not compatible unless they were plugged in via mini plug. Yes, you head me right.... these wireless headphones only work for console when plugged into a mini cable... which basically turns them into normal pair of ear buds. But thats not all, when I did plug them in via mini plug the build in volumne/mute controls didnt even work. This was beyond frustrating. On the other side, I did test them on my PC and they worked perfectly., and all buttons integrated perfectly into my PC gaming experience. All in all, worth picking up as long as you are not intending on using them for console gaming.

    Excellent 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset!

    Logitech G935 Wireless 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset PC with LIGHTSYNC RGB Lighting is an excellent option for PC, Mac, Microsoft Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 gaming consoles. It is slightly bigger size than expected. I have configured this headset using USB dongle wirelessly. Please note that you cannot use Bluetooth option to connect with devices. It connected with all devices wirelessly without any issues. For XBOX one X, I was able to connect with included audio cable. Sound quality is amazing as you expect from 7.1 gaming headsets. I am amazed with the Dolby Surround Sound and it works really great in many games. In PC, colors and G keys can be configured using Logitech G Hub Software. It can be customized 16.8 million colors to match team colors, environment or sync with other Logitech G gear. Lightsync automatically react to in-game actions, audio or screen color to pump up the intensity of the games. This is one of the most advanced head set with 12 hours of battery power per charge and clean setup without wires getting in the way. It has 50mm Pro-G drivers and woven hybrid mesh design deliver an incredible sonic experience with more depth and detail without distortion. The 6mm microphone works perfectly. It flips up to mute and features a red indicator light to highlight it is muted. The large ear cups works great and it fit really well on ears. I have used this headset for PC games, Xbox One X and it delivered outstanding sound quality.

    great sound

    Ok let me start with stating that I love the sound on these. Its amazing. Will get to that later though. So first a few things that makes me give these a 4 star. One big one for me is the range. They say 66 feet or so about. However, I can't go more than 25 feet away and they cut out and break up. Being a 2.4ghz system I would have thought they could go farther away. But that was not the case for me. The light configuration on these is not the best place. You have the logo on the sides and then on the back a light string on each cup. Its thin and hard enough to see let along on the back. So, if streaming for instance, stream can't see. It is not wireless with Xbox on. Have to connect the 3.5mm cable still to the controller. One thing I don't get on these also, is that there is a mic mute button on the back of the headset. I say this, because you can mute the mic just by lifting up the mic. So, it's a double button. For me, I think they would have been better off adding a sound mute for the headset all together over having 2 mic mute options. As it stands, there is none for that other then to power them off. Which then can take a second or so. Or have made it so it would tell you the battery power or something. Just I feel it could have been something over muting mic. Feels a bit loose, when I lean forward, they want to slide off. If you want to stream, you have to get a third-party software on pc if you use a 2-pc system to stream as these do act like there own driver. Now for some reasons I enjoy these. Obviously the biggest being just the sound quality itself. I am 95% deaf in left ear and 50% in right. These are louder then my other headsets I have used and have. As well as the surround sound is great. I have a lot easier time knowing what direction things are happening from. They are wireless with pc, so that is nice to have. Just at least my set does not have range. Love that you can mute the mic from lifting it. And it has a red light on the mic to let you know when muted. The mic tip pulls out as well if you want. The mic is also not to bad being on a headset. And mic is not so long that it comes all the way around in front of mouth so can eat. Like that you do have 3 buttons to set up as you like. So, I chose to select one to go with my push to talk button so if I am not next to keyboard can still talk. The other is set to mute headset sound. And the last I kept as one of the defaults which is the surround sound. But will probably change later. I changed them because you can do the defaults thru the Logitech program. The defaults I changed where to change the color scheme and I believe to change how the sound comes thru. I like that the volume is a wheel. So, you just slide it up or down. I like that the usb part can be stored inside the earcup. And that the outside of earcups have a plastic magnet piece that comes off. This seems like something that in the future possibly can purchase replacement pieces with custom designs or colors. The charging cable is a good length so you can charge and use at the same time easily. The Logitech software allows a lot of customizations to be done and allows to easily sync with your other Logitech gear if you have. I love orange and its nice to set up my keyboard or mouse and then have everything sync with that. Overall, even with the few negative things I stated first, I like this headset so far, the best. I have had razor, and Sennheiser headsets for gaming as well as other headsets like Bose, Skull Candy's etc. For me, sound is the most important, especially being deaf, and these are amazing in that category. If the range was farther (could be my set) then I would easily give 5 stars.

    Pro -Wireless support for PC, PS4, and Switch -No audio lag -Large ear cups won't squish your ears -12-Hr battery life -User replaceable battery -Stores USB dongle in left earcup -Retractable mic w/ auto mute -3.5mm aux input -On board memory to store EQ and button tasks Con -Heavy -Tight squeeze fit -No wireless support on Xbox -Virtual 7.1 only works on computers, not consoles -Background hum when used wired -$20 more than most competitors -Overly sensitive volume dial -Control buttons are clumsy -RGB is useless except for draining batteries -EQ DSP not applied to wired audio ( details below ) -Would be nice if charge port was USB-C instead of micro USB -Can't function as a wired USB headset -You'll want to configure it on a PC before connecting to your console TLDR The G935 has a lot going for it: 50mm drivers, good sound, long lasting battery, customizable EQ, wide compatibility, and wired audio for devices that won't support the USB wireless. But it also has some of the oddest, stupidest shortcomings. The RGB lighting is pointless and just drains batteries, it won't do virtual surround on consoles, and the programmable buttons are kinda pointless. It also can't be used wirelessly with the Xbox One ( though that's more the Xbox's restrictions ). It's a nice enough headset for PC gaming with PS4 on the side, but it's also $20 more than competing models that can do almost everything these can. Xbox users should steer clear. Overall The G935 on paper seems to be a winning product. It uses larger 50mm drivers ( many competing units only use 40mm ), the USB dongle has 7.1 virtual surround processing, the earcups are spacious, customizable RGB lighting is included, it has a long lasting rechargeable battery, and it has three programmable buttons. All of these seem nice, but not all ideas are as great in the real world as they're on the drawing board. In terms of fit, I'm not sure how to rate the G935. As said, the earcup padding is spacious so you won't be pinching your ears at all. The padding is soft but firm and the cups rotate so they can lay flat on your shoulders or desk. However they're comparatively heavy and the headband squeezes my head pretty tight ( 7.5" hat size ). It wasn't uncomfortable or painful, but after a few hours you did notice the pressure and weight. Maybe people with smaller heads won't notice so much. The larger drivers make a difference. Unlike many gaming headsets I've tried, the default EQ settings were very balanced and not the usual bass thumpers I've heard. Logitech's software also includes some extra 16-band EQ presets and you can make your own as well. The headset also has an internal storage capable of holding one custom EQ, which is great if you want to tune the sound curve for your console. The software also lets you set mic and sidetone ( mic monitoring feedback you hear ) levels and RGB scheme for the light strips running up the back of the earcups. If you have other Logitech RGB devices, you can sync their lighting patterns together. Why someone wants fancy lighting on their headset is beyond me, since you'dn't be able to see it at all. Worse, with these lights on the back, even if your YouTube and Twitch viewers can't see it. They really don't do anything except cut battery life by about 30% and increase manufacturing costs. The back of the left earcup has six controls running down it: the power switch up top, three programmable buttons, a mic mute button, and a volume dial. Even one click of the dial made a big change in volume and I found it much too sensitive. The buttons have different shapes and ridges that I guess are supposed to make each one identifiable by touch, but completely fail to do so. They're simply packed too tight together. They're also quite stiff to depress, which is great to prevent accidental presses, but since they're on the back of the earcup, it means you have pinch and grab the whole thing, otherwise you'd push it right off your head. I think a much better arrangement would be to leave the power and volume controls where they're and put two buttons on the outside of each cup. That way you could press a button with just a finger pressing into your head rather then gripping the whole earcup and counting buttons as you run your finger down the back. The three programmable buttons can be configured in the Logitech software to do just about any command, from copy/paste or prev/next music track, recorded macros, and even headset specific tasks like cycling lighting patterns, EQ presets, and toggling the 7.1 emulation. The commands are stored in the headset memory so they'll work even on computers that don't have the G Hub software installed and on consoles. In practice, the buttons are mainly useful only for headset specific controls since most everything else is done faster with your keyboard and mouse. I set mine to toggle the onboard EQ curve and to increase/decrease the sidetone volume. The mic is stored on the front of the left cup and rotates down when in use. It telescopes a little for adequate adjustment range and is automatically muted whenever rotated back up ( a tactile bump lets you know the switching point ). Mic quality seems good as I was told my voice sounded better using the G935 wirelessly on my PS4 than my normal wired headset. However, some of the mic design decisions seem odd to me. I don't know why Logitech bothered to put a dedicated mic mute button on the back of the headset when you can more easily mute the mic by flicking it up. If you do leave the mic down and use the mute button, a red LED lights up on the inside of the mic indicating it's off. But that's in the very corner of your vision, so I don't know how noticeable that's to most people. Like I said, it seems unnecessary. Apart from the USB wireless connection, the G935 also has a standard 3.5mm 4-pole connector so you can connect it to your phone, tablet, or console controller. The headset can also use this input and the wireless connection at the same time, though the EQ settings won't affect audio coming in over the wired connection when doing so. The headset also must be powered on for the mic to work. So you can leave it off and use it as passive headphones, or turn it on ( without the USB dongle plugged in to anything ) to use it as a wired headset, complete with volume and EQ control. When used in this way, I noticed a hum in the background. The PS4 and Switch can connect by using the 3.5mm jack or the wireless USB dongle, but they'll not support the 7.1 audio emulation. Due to the Xbox One's restrictions on USB audio, only the wired connection works there. My set came out of the box with the sidetone set quite high where the voice monitor was very distracting. I'd recommend anyone using this primarily on console to plug them first into a computer and use the Logitech software to configure the volume levels and EQ first. All in all, it's a tough question whether I'd recommend the G935. The sound quality is good. The utility is good. Comfort is adequate. And it has a lot of nice little touches. The USB dongle can be stored in the left earcup so you don't lose it. This also makes them somewhat portable. The battery in the right right earcup is user replaceable and really does last ~12 hours per charge. The covers to the earcups are also magnetically attached so you don't need to worry about flimsy clip tabs breaking off. But it also has quite a few things I really don't like. The control buttons are muddled and their overall usefulness is limited. The RGB and extra mic mute features are completely unnecessary. These questionably useful features drive up the cost. There are too many good wireless headsets in the $120 - $150 range that can do most, if not all, this can, but don't have the downsides. Asking $170 for this is a little too much. Unless you find this on sale, or if it does something that fits your specific needs and the downside don't bother you, I think you can do better for the money.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
