Now I have had this headset for almost 2 months so feel ready for a review! Have previously owned a Logitech G35 for 7 years which I refused to replace when it was so good, but after they played their last note, these became the replacements!
We can start with the positive.
+ Very comfortable over the ears, no disturbing pressure or heat development for my part. Nice material.
+ Easier than my G35, there is clearly lighter headset but nothing that bothers me
+ Good sound both in music and games, great difference when it comes to music compared to my old G35. Good bass in them with. (Is absolutely no music expert but for me as a regular consumer they are top)
+ Good battery life I think
+ Strongly like it is 7.1! Be a must for me as I like to be able to hear where people are when I play FPS games. It feels like the G35 had a bit more surround feeling though a little "fake" over it now that I get to compare. Very big difference to driving with the girl's HyperX Cloud, however, as night and day when it comes to getting a more "spatial" sound and being able to locate the enemy.
+ Good with buttons on the side to quickly and easily change EQ, surround or the like.
+ Really nipped that the microphone is fully folded into the headset. At G35, you fold it up "on" headset. After the number of years, it began to extinguish more and more and was never in a completely upright position, but in the field of vision it was quite annoying.
+++ Wireless! Will never buy a headset with cord again if I don't absolutely have to. Getting rid of a cord tangled in the computer chair all the time is wonderful.
To the negative:
-Band above the head is a bit too narrow according to me, probably half the width of the G35, which means that all weight ends up in a small area. Despite the lower weight, after a few hours it feels like you were wearing them, can be solved by shifting around a little but would have liked it to be bigger.
-No giant minus maybe but thought the RGB light would be on the headset but apparently it is on the back. Thought it would have looked nice if you streamed more so people get to see the different colors. But, apparently, be for those who are standing behind one to enjoy! Do not really understand why they did so but maybe there is a reason.
-Logitech's software can be very tough sometimes. If you have had any other version of their software installed before, it may crash with the new one. Had problems with it disconnected, not found on the computer, the surround sound did not work etc. Got to sit for a couple of hours and erased every single track on the whole computer that had with the logitech to do so to make a reinstallation. After that it works as it should. Must put the USB dongle straight into the computer, it cannot be held in a USB hub or a socket on the screen.
- The microphone is a little short, can't get it in front of the mouth but a good distance from the side. Has okay sound but no top quality. Don't know how it measures with other headset microphones but would say I've heard worse at least.
If one can imagine adding SEK 1500-2000 for a gaming headset, I think this is great! Is there more "affordable" but if you want both wireless, RGB and 7.1 I don't think you can find anything too much cheaper.
