    Great headset sounds great and the mic is also great! Only reason for the .5 off star is it should also have bluetooth!

    Having tried many headsets over time, I found this headset to be on par with some of the best I have used. The fit is very comfortable and the sound quality is excellent. The microphone is also high quality and others are able to hear me well. I would highly recommend this headset.

    These have 7.1 vitual surround sound and sound great with there 50 mm drivers. These also have lighting effects but does effect battery life so I just turn it off. The mic that's included hides in the headset when you don't want to use it . The only issues I have seen with these is the App made it impossible to hear sound until I turned it off and back on , the mic is decent at best and to me they are quite heavy and fall off with any big movement.

    The sound is amazing and the mic is pretty good as well. My only gripe with this headset is that they don't link smoothly with my PS4. I have to unplug and re-plug the wireless dongle in my PS4 several times some times for the system to pick up the headset. Not a Logitech thing I don't think and moreso an issue from PS4. Definitely worth the buy!

    These were a slight upgrade from the G930s I had. I love the adjustable mic that not only moves up and down, but can also be pulled out some to fully adjust it. The colors are cool, though you don't see them since you are the ones wearing the headset. Battery life is okay, since the changing colors consume battery. They are fairly comfortable, but I do get a little tired of wearing them after a few hours, but other than that they are a solid buy.

    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.

    Quality Gaming Headset

    TLDR: Well built, good audio quality, average mic, a little bit of "gamer" aesthetic, comfortable, but a little heavy on the head. Overall - excellent product. At first look, the G935's have a very solid construction. The cups do seem a bit large and the style seems a little dated. They're a little bulky and heavy - but not beyond acceptable. I don't dislike the RGB and it can easily be controlled via the G Hub software (supports light sync between Logitech RGB products). The RGB comes under fire as being "unnecessary", but I think it's an expected touch for most "gaming" product. As for sound quality, listening to music was good. Solid bass and clear highs. I don't expect to use the headphone jack, but it's kind of nice to know that I can plug it in with the included premium 3.5 mm braided cable if I need to. I spent a few hours playing Black Ops 4 and Overwatch with these so far and I the 7.1 surround delivers a solid performance here too. The stow-away goose neck mic is a nice touch. It mutes when rotated up and has a good range of adjustment. As far as audio quality goes, it's about average. Nothing amazing, but adequate for gaming and voice chat.

    Best headset I've had, still not perfect

    This headset is good in so many ways; incredible audio, good microphone for a headset, the logitech software to control their products is easy to use. I've assigned the macro buttons to pause and skip music, and I use the volume wheel consistently. The microphone automatically mutes when you lift it up, and stays away from your mouth when it's down (whereas other headsets I've had to put the mic in my mouth to even be heard). The only downside I've seen so far is the headset is a little uncomfortable when wearing glasses. The cushions push a little too hard against my head. I also have ears that stick a little bit away from my head, and they feel a little sore after hours of use. These are the only downsides, and they may not be downsides for everybody, ultimately not making me take a star away.

    The size is a little bulky but is pretty much the same size as other quality headphones. I think the components were well-thought out. It has a compartment for the USB dongle, the boom mic is nicely incorporated in the headphones. I like it that there are "confirmation" clicks or sounds (even lights) on every action you make, for example the mic snaps in place, or the dongle clicks in, or probably my favorite, is the wireless ON button is sliding, unlike other devices that you push a button and have to wait and see if it turns it on or not. The lighting feature is okay, I don't think I'll ever get to experience it, especially that I don't play in a small dark room. But it's pretty much plug n play with my PS4. I put the dongle in and it recognizes it easily. Per my fortnite buddies, I come in clear. I tried using it on my phone too-- But using the USB dongle (USB C to USB adapter)-- I do come in really loud to the person on the other line-- as in really loud that I don't know how to reduce the volume. My friend had to turn the volume down on her end. Sound quality to be honest is not any different from my other good quality headphones, so I cannot attest to any advantage with this. Sound is simply clean and crisp. After hours of using it, it doesn't hurt or bother me-- no soreness on my outer earlobes. I haven't tried testing the battery life though. I have used it for maybe 10 hours and I seems like it's still going for me. I tried doing a hack on my Sony TV though, if placing the dongle on the TV will make it act like I can listen to the TV with it-- no success. It's okay, it's not made for it. For what I use it for, gaming and even phone conversations while doing my push ups, it's great-- without any connection issues at a good room distance!

    Gaming phones can get ridiculously expensive, and these aren't. They are wireless, hold a charge all day, sound amazing, and bonus-they light up! As an adult, the lights aren't quite so important but they score high on the "neato" scale. I do Truly appreciate the flip to mute mic feature. Syncing with my rig was effortless with the BT nib. Comfort is amazing. No heavy spot on this model. Highly recommend especially for the price.

    Actually went to my local Best Buy to purchase a different headset ( Razer Nari) but seen the new Logitech's on display. I play on a PS4 Pro and prefer wireless so I try a demo of the G935. Immediately blown away by its sound quality and comfort and decided to get them instead. Super simple plug and play setup as my PS4 recognized the usb receiver immediately. Play some Apex Legends and still blown away by this headset. The new 50mm drivers are tuned perfectly. I could hear everything and pinpoint enemy locations very easily. The improved microphone came across crystal clear. Very comfortable as I played for about 4hrs without any issues from the headset. Highly recommend this new model

    This is a copy of G933 with improved sound and ear cups. I have used it since last night in games and music and it did really a good job, 7.1 surround sound regardless if its Dolby Atoms or DTS, Logitech also improved the ear cups by adding leatherette that gives comfort to long wearing. In addition, the usb compartment remains the same similar to G33 which is convenient to carry the usb receiver. G-Keys are fully programable at your Preference, The downside of these headphones are the RGB feature that I hope Logitech considered repositioning the RGB strip from the back or at least make more visible. Since i'm a big fun of RGB things I would say it doesn't make any sense leaving it in the back where it cant be seen. However, if RGB feature desn't mean a big deal to you and you would rather focus on quality of sound and comfort. I would say these headphones are great and sound really good and clear makes me hear the 7 directions while gaming. Glossy accent is easy to hold fingerprints. Mic is clear is has led indicator when is muted. I enjoyed it! battery lofe is good played 6 hours with RGB lights on from 100% went down to 60% which is good as you get more battery life is lights are off.

    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.

    One of the best ...

    The Logitech G935 is a solid offering. The design has clean lines and just enough accent lighting. I was pleasantly surprised with the ease of set up. Although I'm not a fan of Logitech migrating to their G Hub software exclusively for this product, everything still went smoothly. The wireless range is strong and I didn't experience any spurious disconnection issues. The audio and microphone performance of this headset is top-shelf and it's strongest attributes. Having purchased, owned or otherwise reviewed a wide range of wireless headsets, I personally find the Logitech G935 to be the 'best of breed' regarding range of volume, clarity and overall fidelity. The 50mm drivers do an outstanding job of reproducing the full spectrum, most notably in the mid-range and bass frequencies. Treble is also very smooth and not overly bright. This headset has the best overall sound of any wireless offering I've heard over the past several years. And having that little bit of extra gain with respect to max volume is very important to me. So many wireless headsets these days just don't get loud enough for me. The onboard controls are logically placed and easy to adapt to, another high point for this design. Overall comfort is good although the ear pads are not as comfortable as cloth/micro fiber material and since the geometry of the human head can very so much, I suspect there will be those that dislike wearing them for extended periods of time ... or at all. For me, the comfort is good and the compliant foam is just right. Battery life is solid, beating the specifications by a little bit, but it remains to be seen if it can consistently provide this type of reliable power between charges at the 6 month, 12 month and longer age-points. No matter, Logitech stands behind this product with a 2-year warranty, so I'm not really concerned. I would recommend using these with the lighting disabled for serious game-play to maximize game time without worry. Or if it's a marathon session, just use the cable. Overall I would highly recommend this headset. Individuals will need to decide on the comfort level by trying them out personally, but I believe few (if any) can & will complain about the operation and the outstanding audio performance. Give them a try !

    Wow! LOVE the sound. These headphones have so many great features. When I first opened them I couldn't find the usb adapter for my computer. Then bam.... I found them in a secret compartment in the earpiece. GENIUS. What a great use of space and so convenient to carry with the headphones when not connected to a device. The buttons are all in the right places and are easy to find and use when wearing the headphones. Love the lights even though I don't really see them when I am wearing them. I love the feature where the mic is also "hidden" in the earpiece. You just pull it down when you want to talk. WOW! It really has great sound. The mic picks up my voice immediately and I can hear it in my headset so I can tell how others are hearing me. The sounds that are generated are awesome. I was very impressed. They fit great as well. I like that the earpieces swivel and easily contour to my head. They should fit just about any head and ear types. Another great feature.

    Great Wireless Gaming Headset

    So, the G935 is a pretty large headset, but it is not too heavy and feels very comfortable when worn for a couple hours. This might be due to the mainly black plastic chassis (part shiny, part matte) with the only visible metal portion being in the headband. The leatherette ear-cups are square in design, very comfortable and both rotate to a flat position, which is good for storage. Down the back- side of each ear-cup you've two RGB lighting zones along with a Logitech Gaming G logo on each cup. The left earcup has a storage spot for the usb dongle under a magnetic cover, this is great as I know dongles are an easy thing to misplace. Also, in the left earcup there is a well-hidden retractable boom mic, that's muted when retracted. The right ear-cup houses the rechargeable battery while the left ear-cup also houses all the inputs and buttons. You have power switch, a mute button, three programmable buttons and a volume dial. I've two problems, the buttons are too close and indistinguishable to the touch and the other problem is the volume dial that's too slick making it too easy to accidentally change the volume, after you've found your sweetspot. You can use the dongle with your pc or console, but you also can use it with the supplied 3.5 mm audio cable. To unlock the full potential of the G935, you've to use it with the Logitech G Hub software, which I found easy to use. Even without the software, this headset sounds great. I tried it both with a PS4 (Red Dead Redemption) and a PC (Wolfenstein 2) and the sound was clean and impactful. With the software things open up. You can tweak your sound as much as you desire. You can have various EQ presets as well as turn on the DTS and customize the surround sound. The lighting zones can also be customized, with many color options but I don't know how much of a purpose the lights have when I look at where they are placed, which is essentially behind you. I guess if you are completing a particular look with your other RGB devices. With the mic, all persons who I spoke to, said I came through clear and with no distortion or cutting in and out. When it comes to battery life, I've used it for about 10 hours (some gaming and some music) , with the lighting off and at about 50% volume, so I can assume with lights on it would cut that time down to 6-8 hours. I think this is another solid entry from Logitech and I would suggest that's a definite buy, if you've been looking for a stylish gaming headset.

    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.

    A worthy predecessor to the vaunted G933

    The G935 Gaming Headphones from Logitech are the next evolution of former G933 from a few years ago. In fact if put side by side it would be difficult to quickly recognize differences. But there are. The ear pads are better now, using a leatherette type of material rather than cloth in 933. The padding on these headphones is fantastic, thick and cushy they form to your face comfortable providing an excellent seal. If you are looking for headset for listening to music, or watching movies - 'yes' these will work. But don't expect to be blown away, that'sn't what these 'cans' were designed for. These are specifically designed for video gamers. For the gamer these sound incredible! The depth of sound, the richness and deep bass these produce is strikingly great! Logitech provides custom software to drive these headphones, and the application is really, really good! The application is a solid, refined piece of software that was well designed and tested. It's nice to see that Logitech didn't cheap out on the software, like many cheaper models from other manufacturers often do. The software is a vital part of the whole package, and helps to make the G935 shine. The older G933 model was a good pair of gaming headphones, but suffered from an inadequate microphone that produced poor sound. That problem is resolved in the G935, which uses a better quality mic. I found the audio pick-up and quality to be very good, much better than the former model. The strongest part of the G935 for me is the surround sound reproduction. It's the best I've heard in any gaming wireless headset. The new Pro G driver used in the G935 is super efficient and pumps out tons of crystal clear audio with zero distortion! Couple that with the spatial effects, and you can hear the crunch of leaves as someone is quietly approaching behind you. While playing Resident Evil 2 I could tell when I was being followed from behind, and from which direction. The robust 360 degree landscape of sound generated is eerie! But oh so useful! Wearing these while you are playing your favorite game is sort of like having a super power! Not all is positive though, there are some things I didn't like. I never quite understood the purpose of putting flashing lights on wireless headphones. Yes, I get it - they look cool. But flashing lights are useless, you can't see them while you are wearing the headphones, and worst of all it drains battery life. Maybe if you are on a webcam it might be interesting to see pulsating lights on a players head. But Logitech put the LEDs on the backside of the headset. Huh? Who benefits from these LEDS flashing? Someone in back of you? I've no use for pretty lights, so at least I can turn them off. I've a large noggin, I'd like to think is full of brains (but may be rocks). Regardless I found these to be comfortable for around 90 minutes. Then they get a bit hot, and sweaty. The weight isn't too bad, though I've worn lighter. The padding all the way around is really good. I'd rate these as above average for someone with a big head. No complaints, could be tweaked here and there to be a bit better - but honestly pretty decent. I sampled several games in DTS, and I really like the overall sound. Would I say they're in true 7.1? Ummm. I don't think I could say for sure that the reproduction is true 7.1, but it is pretty dang good. The spatial soundstage it creates is beautiful, and convincing. Overall I recommend these headphones to the gamers out there. There are lot of similar other models on the market, and who knows - some may be better. But from what I've tried these are solid performers, are built well, have quality components, has one of the best microphones I've used in a headset, has a user replaceable battery, has excellent software, and they sound great. You can use these to listen to music too, but don't buy them for that. There are many other headphones that are designed for listening to music. In a pinch you can use these, and Logitech does provide a wired cable for that. If you can catch these on sale, grab'em! Otherwise they're a bit pricey. But they will likely provide years of good service that will put a smile on your face.

    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.

    I would recommend this to a friend
