Today we’ll be delving into the Logitech G930 Wireless Gaming Headset. When it comes to headsets, I am and always will be a Logitech fan, so let’s take a look at how well this offering carries the honor of the brand.
As with any wireless head set, there are certain accommodations one has to make for mobility, but the G930 chooses not to sacrifice quality for convenience.
The audio you hear is delivered in delightful 48 kHz Dolby 7.1 surround sound, and is sent out crystal clear with a number of niche noise-canceling features, and a few automatic shut off feature creature comforts that help with the day to day handling of your headset. As one who constantly adjusts the mic on his headset, I appreciated the feature on this headset to automatically mute when you do so.
It delivers on its promised 40 foot range, promising you will have full sound quality in and out regardless of where you deign to use it, with no appreciable loss to quality, and therefore no loss to immersion.
It includes a number of programmable push to talk and macro buttons on the headset itself, which is immensely useful to any gamer, but particularly those whose keys are already tied up extensively with macros, allowing the headset to account for the push to talk button, freeing up valuable keyboard real estate.
The head set is solidly built, and did not skimp on comfort, both of which are more than welcome, as any gamer can attest to the misery of an uncomfortable headset, or the stress of fearing you’ll break it each time you put it on or take it off.
The downside to this beauty is that it is wireless, and comes with all the perils and pitfalls that spawn from the territory. Depending on how extensively your gaming cave is interlinked wirelessly, you could have no issues, or you could have various issues with the signal being crossed, or your headset deciding it wants to communicate with your smart phone, or any other strange combination of signal interaction.
Because so much effort was put into making it comfortable and well-constructed, the head set is heavy. For gamers with a cushioning of hair, or a big head, it can be mitigated, but for our average-haired, average-size-headed comrades, this crown can weigh heavily.
Last but not least, the button placement on the headset lends itself to fat fingering button push gaffes, which marginalizes its efficacy, as sometimes it is more effective to dedicate only one button to use, to prevent inadvertent button issues.
Overall, the G930 lives up to the storied reputation of its brand, and avails itself well as a gaming accessory. The good far outweighs the bad, and these masterfully constructed headsets have proven to be more than capable of standing the test of time, which is more than many gaming headsets can claim.
When the usual life of a gaming headset can be from six to twelve months, and these bad boys still perform in top form after two yeas, you know you’ve got a winner on your hands.
