    Not sure if I got a bad apple from the batch but from the start these headsets were giving me connectivity issues, audio issues where some playback would still come from my computers speakers and others through the head phones, and the quality of the headsets themselves feels a bit cheap. I say this because any movement I make looking left or right or even tilting my head I hear the plastic creaking and flexing and it's not like it subtle either, it's very loud into my ear and very distinct where it's hard to ignore. Quite honestly it sorta ruins the whole experience for me. The audio is really good and the surround sound works fantastic but imo the build quality is lacking or at least for my pair.

    Okay... Headphones are becoming the next "battlegrounds" for PC/Laptop add-ons... and why not? We watch Movies and TV on them... We listen to just about all our audio on them... and of course, many of us play games. These headphones have all the bells and whistles. First the sound quality is clear and crisp. I jammed out to a popular soundtrack about a guy at the Circus, and it was fantastic. The Setup, was easy. The USB connection tucks away in the headphones, so you can take these easily with you, without loosing the key dongle that it needs. Plugs right into my mac, and was INSTANTLY ready to use. Charging, comes with a lengthy cable so you can charge and use at the same time, if you forgot to charge it. The microphone, if you are into yelling at your friends while playing games, is right there too... but if you don't need it, tucks away very nicely and almost to the point, you have to look twice before you see it. The volume control actually controls the setting on the computer, so you can get away from the mouse volume up and down. The light show... well that is cool for the other people in the room, so they can see you have the headset on... unless you have a really odd shaped head, your not going to see it while using it. Lastly, the ear pieces rotate, so you can lay the headset down FLAT... which is KILLER, to save wear and tear on this rotation point. that is by far the #1 place headphones break.

    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!

    Great sound, too pricey for the features and flaws

    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.
