Pros - 7.1 sound. - Great sound quality. - Very comfy. - Great Pricing (especially when on sale). - Wireless is flawless up to the range's limit. - Charges quickly, even when using them at the same time. - Dock is very small and fits even the most overburdened desktop. - Volume can reach crazy level and literally melt your ears. - 10 hours battery charge. - No cons whatsoever.
Cons - Plastic feels cheap/weak (but isn't at all).
Summary I've been using hem for quite sometimes and they never let me down, even when I'm using around interference sources like router or microwave. The battery gives plenty of time between charges. It didn't lose one ounce of power yet even with those numerous charges. I recommend them to anyone and especially since they'Re almost always on sale on here.
Pros Good sound quality and good Mic quality. Comfortable design.
Cons Any 2.4GHz signal can frequently disrupt the signal of the headset with extreme ease. Don't use it near a Router, Modem, Cell Phone, or Microwave or it'll frequently cut out and be a paper weight.
Summary It is a good headset save for the fact that if you have anything that uses or generates a Wifi or bluetooth signal nearby, it can frequently interrupt the signal to the headset. The last month has been increasingly frustrating when it cuts out on people mid-sentence. Despite having a dock that plugs into it and acts as it's charging device, it is unable to be used as a corded device through it's USB connection. It's a common problem if you stroll over to the Logitech boards themselves with people having this issue.
Summary This is the first gaming headset i ever tried, must say it's a really nice addition to the set up. It features surround headphone function, which is a must have for people who can't afford surround speakers or just need to play in the middle of night. The built in mic is responsive. Only downside is it's slightly heavy and expensive at regular price.
Pros Battery life, simplicity, overall sound, range
Cons Definitely not 7.1, not so great in some fps games
Summary I've got theses from Logitech directly as a warranty replacement (an upgrade from my older headset which was discontinued).
Overall: First, I gotta say I like simplicity. I want my stuff to be plug and play. Literally. I'm hooked to wireless headsets. The range is phenomenal. I can get from my computer and go outside the house without loosing connection. The microphone gets muted when you get it up, so now you have headphones! There's also a dedicated mute button on the headset. Charging port is a standard usb port (think android cellphones). They are comfortable so you can have them on your head for many hours. I usually get around 10 hours of constant usage with mine, but as everything battery related, YMMV. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who likes wireless headphones.
Usage - Voice: I use softwares like TeamSpeak and Skype a lot, as well as Google's Phone app and for this purpose alone, the headset is well worth it. The sound is clear, the battery life is great (well over a full work-day's worth of battery life) and if you run out of battery well, you can get the cable and you get a lame wired headset, but still a working headset you can use while charging.
Usage - Gaming: For gaming, it's a mixed bag. I'm far from a pro gamer, but I found that in some games when you do rely a lot on sound, they fall short. It might be a driver's incompatibility, the problem could be with the game, but in CS:GO for example, I have much trouble finding where noises come from. I used to shoot through walls when I heard someone make a noise, but now I just look around, trying to find where this noise came from.
Usage - Music: For music, the sound is far from being perfect. First, it's not close to being loud enough for my taste (I like my music LOUD, and crystal clear). It's not crystal clear either. Think maybe good 20$ headphones. Definitely not in the likes of a good pair of Sennisers. I don't listen to music with theses so I don't really care about this aspect.
Installation: Pretty much plug and play. tryed on windows 7 and 8, nothing else to do that plug, and play. I also happen to have a G15 keyboard so when I installed the keyboard's driver/key mapping application, it discovered my headset and added some functionality. You can program the buttons on the headset to do whatever you would like (think macro) more on that later. The app tells you when you're about to run out of battery, which is nice.
Gadgets (voice morph, macros, etc): I set mine to voice morph, which modify your voice. You can download ($$$) voice package to sound like whatever you want, but I didn't try this feature. I used the voice morph a few times to annoy people and it does that pretty well. Not much other uses I could think of, maybe phone pranks? Anyway, the feature is there. Other than that, I haven't programmed any macros on my headset as I have a keyboard with loads of macros. Since the software is the same, I'm guessing the macros works the same as well. Logitech's system works allright, altho you might find it a bit complicated to setup. The easyest way I found to setup macros is to just record a macro "live", and modify it afterwards. Macros can be set with profiles, which means you can have the same button doing a different thing in different situation (think windows vs game vs other game, etc). By default, it's setup to play/pause, rewind/back, forward, IIRC. Anyway, can't comment on this feature as I don't use it much, except for the macros already programmed (voice morph in my case).
All in all, I sometimes wish I had a simple corded headset with better sound, but then I need to plug theses in because I forgot to charge em and I remember how much I hate wires!
Cons - Loses connection frequently despite being 2 feet away from the transmitter. - Drivers are very buggy. Constantly crashing my sound, causing videos to freeze and explorer to crash. Everything is fine when these get unplugged. - Sound mixer and control panel frequently become disabled, have to jiggle the volume to make it so they will open.
These are not issues isolated to my computer, these are known issues with the product and I wish I knew about them before I bought it.
Summary Regret buying these. My next set will be corded and will not be Logitech. At least i only paid $99.
Summary I have owned a G35 for 5 years and it served me well until the mic stopped working. So I sought out to buying a wireless headset instead of getting another G35. The wire of the G35 would always get tangled and you can not turn the ear pieces 90 degrees which is quite uncomfortable considering the size of the headset.
I like the quality of Logitech I have several devices of there's and I have been always happy with. Through several day's of research and my own knowledge of the wired cousin of the G930 the G35 I said why not. I purchased the G930 plugged it in. The sound coming out of the G930s are really nice, with the surround 7.1 you actually will think its happening behind you. Really cool in fps games, you can hear the bullets zinging beside your head you can really get into a game easily with this headset. The highs are crisp and lows deep. The sound is well rounded and not overwhelming. The mic is good nice sounding, the flexible boom is a nice touch as well. With the LED light to indicate if the mic is muted.
Customizable G keys really nice when listening to music skip, play, stop tracks really nice. Scroll volume is nice as well not like those push button volume controls I like the scroll better personaly. Mute button simple and easy.
The software from logitech is always an easy setup and customization. Indicators for the battery life. Avatars for voice morphing is quite funny as well. Your in a big battle with friends everyone is concentrated on the task at hand then you change your voice they will laugh trust me.
All in all the Logitech G930s is a great headset. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone who enjoys simplicity and great sound.
Pros Very clean wireless audio Lays flat so it's easy to pack in a laptop bag
Cons Low volume Not as much bass as the G35
Summary I've owned a G35 wired headphone for a long time so I have that as a base of comparison. There are a few things that I prefer about the G35 over the G930.
The G930 doesn't come with a set of changeable pads unlike the G35 to make the headphone more comfortable. That's not to say that the G930 is uncomfortable, but it is less customizable.
For some odd reasons, you can't get an audible sound when muting/unmuting the microphone on the G930 unlike the G35. I liked the audio cue to confirm that I am muted in conference calls. You still get a red LED on the microphone tip to see, but I don't understand why the G930 can't do it. It sounds like such a simple thing to implement.
The G930 doesn't get nearly as loud as the G35. Not sure if it's due to the battery vs. USB power, but I have all volumes at max on the PC and it is not loud. The G35 screams in comparison. The G930 also doesn't have as much bass as the G35.
I wish the G930 would detect when you lay it flat on a table so it turns itself off. Instead, you have to push and hold a button for a few seconds that can be a bit tricky to reach.
On the plus side, the wireless quality is flawless. Not a sign of crackle or interference. I can walk to my kitchen and the audio is still crisp. Unlike the G35, the G930 can be laid down flat at the cups rotate. That makes it easy to pack into a laptop bag to carry around. The G35 is way too bulky since it doesn't rotate like that.
All in all, I'm happy with the purchase, but I still think the G35 is an overall better product if the wire doesn't bother you. The G930's low volume is bothersome. Cranked to the max is the only way to use it and even with that it is not loud enough.
Pros Wireless. have some bass. Good sound quality. Good mic quality. Cover the whole ear. charge on any usb charger and you can use the same wire as your android.
Cons Limited range through wall (will vary). Look like an idiot when i wear it. foam headband is smaller than g35. Power button
Summary Would recommend this headset, work perfectly. Full review:
The headset work perfectly when you install the logitech gaming software, It include a 10 band equalizer, pre amp, surround mixer and some nice voice avatar for the mic. if u have a logitech keyboard like me (g19) it will show you the volume level when you change it or indicate when you are low on baterie which is nice.
Sound is great in game or movies but it doesn't sound like a real 7.1 surround. my friend says the mic have a really smooth sound.
When the baterie is very low the range of the wireless will reduce fast but you can plug it in any usb charger and the chargeing base have an impreesing cable lenght. As i use it 70% of the time in front of my pc and 95% of time i have a usb charger in range, I have no problem with the fact that the batery is integrated.
The wireless range will vary depending of wall density, in my apartement I can go almost everywhere execpted in 2 coner where I briefly loose signal sometime. (6room+bathroom on 1 floor). Tried in a small house, I could go in the basement or 2nd floor without any problem. (receiver on the first floor) So it will just depend where your computer is positioned and your home configuration.
This headset delivers a fast wireless connection so you can level up without being tied down. Add 7.1 surround sound, three programmable G-keys and a comfortable, adjustable fit and you've got everything you need to win.
