two minute review

There are two camps when it comes to the best gaming headsets: those who like wired headsets and those who prefer wireless headsets like the Logitech G Pro X Lightspeed. We're usually the first, but sometimes there's a headset that breaks barriers and delivers great sound quality and comfort: the Logitech Pro X.

However, to achieve this level of quality, there is a high price barrier. The Logitech G Pro X Wireless Lightspeed will set you back $199 (about $150, AU$280), which puts it in the same territory as the $9 (£199, AU$179) Steelseries Arctis 359X or the $199 ($199, AU$399). ). ) Razer Nari Ultimate, both of which come with larger or unique feature sets.

Although the Logitech G Pro X Lightspeed doesn't have the haptic motors of the Razer headset or the noise-canceling microphone of the SteelSeries Arctis 9X, it does have an extremely rigid build quality and great sound. What you get, then, is a great headset without the bells and whistles of other high-end gaming headsets.

Strapping is all metal, with memory foam padding on top, which is covered in faux fur on top. The straps lead to the actual ear cups, which are mostly hard plastic with the Logitech 'G' logo printed in nice textured metal in the center of each side. The headset is completely black, and thanks to its minimalist design and complete lack of color accents, it ends up being one of the most stylish gaming headsets we've reviewed.

On the left ear cup you will find all the buttons, switches and dials. There's a USB-C port for charging, which we love, a power switch, a volume dial, and a mute button. The nice thing about the power and mute button is that they're color coded, so you know whether or not they'll mute you before you put on your headphones, and you don't have to. You don't even need to turn the thing on.

Instead of opting for Bluetooth like many gaming headsets, Logitech is sticking with 2,4GHz wireless via a dongle. It is an excellent option as it reduces latency which improves the gaming experience. However, that means you'll keep these headphones on your desk, as they won't connect to your phone without Bluetooth.

Putting these headsets to the test in Halo 3, we were impressed by the audio quality of these headsets. The headphones offer 7.1 surround sound via 50mm drivers, making it feel like we're actually in the game. Unfortunately, because we're testing this out in the "Cortana" mission, which has you poking around a flood-filled Covenant ship. , while hearing voices scares us a bit, but that says a lot about how good this helmet is.

However, things get a bit worse when it comes to the microphone. The microphone is detachable, which we love, but the sound is tiny, something we hear whether we're in a Google Hangouts meeting for work or on our Discord server right after work. It's not the end of the world, and Logitech includes its Blue Vo!ce software to help improve the quality of your audio input, but it's something to keep in mind, especially if it's your primary microphone. It's disappointing to see it in such an expensive helmet.

Logitech G Pro X Wireless Lightspeed doesn't have many unique features, that's for sure. However, the headphones more than justify their price thanks to the solid build quality and audio fidelity. In fact, this headset's 7.1 surround sound might be the best implementation of the technology we've seen to date. The mic is a bit behind the times, but if you're just playing games like Death Stranding and Cyberpunk 2077, the pros definitely outweigh the cons.
