Headset, Mic, and Warranty review
The Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930’s headset aesthetically is not all that. It’s not to say that it looks bad, it just looks a lot plainer than other headsets that are out there in the market such as the Creative Sound Blaster EVO ZxR. The headset is on an average weight, not that heavy and not that light, but this weight is reasonable as the headset itself has a feel of being built really well. And the headset is pretty well built as both hard plastic and metal are used for its headband.
The ear cups and the headband’s padding are soft and very comfortable, and the headband also gives ample allowance even for the biggest of heads. The ear cups’ padding not only offers comfort, it also gives great sound isolation, so you will only hear the sound of the game you are playing.
There are also great buttons featured on the headset. There is a button for surround sound and there are three fully customizable buttons so that you can do whatever you want with them. These three buttons is what some gamers dream of, to be in charge of what your headset can do is a gift for even the pickiest of gamers.
Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930’s headset one charge can last for 10 hours, ample time for one long gaming session. When battery is low, you will receive various notifications which can be turned off, such as the beeping sound from the headset itself or the pop-up notification on your desktop. And if you do run out of juice, you can take comfort in the fact that it can be used while charging, and its charging cable is really long so you won’t find any issues there.
Compared to the great audio quality that the G930 has, its microphone is just ok. Though you will be heard pretty well, it does not compare to other gaming headsets’ microphone such as the Sennheiser PC 363D which works pretty well. The upside to the microphone is that it is flexible and through the Logitech Gaming Software, you can have fun with various voice morphs so that you can have that distinct sound when gaming in a group.
When it comes to its compatibility, the Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930 is limited to Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and only in stereo mode with the Playstation 4. Meanwhile, it has limited warranty coverage of 3 years. This limited warranty does not cover accident, abuse, lost parts, and normal wear and tear.
Is it worth Your Money ?
The Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930 certainly has great audio quality and for the price of around $100 to $160, it would be a steal! Its great surround sound and fully customizable audio experience certainly is note-worthy. It does lag behind in the microphone department when compared to its audio quality but this is negligible. Another issue that some gamers may also contend with is its limited compatibility. But if you are a PC or Playstation 4 user, then you are all set. And as for the G930’s aesthetic appeal, it does look well for a headset but it won’t win any prizes in any beauty pageant. All in all, if you are a PC or Playstation 4 user, this gaming headset is a must-buy!
