Logitech G930

Pros
  • Excellent sound quality
  • Strong signal with minimal interference
  • Comfortable
Cons
  • Not suitable for gaming consoles
  • Bass could be richer
  • Dolby 7.1 surround sound isn't great

Bottom line

The Logitech G930 may be wireless, but critics say you'd never know it by its sound. The signal stays strong for a remarkably long distance, and the hisses and crackles common in so many other wireless headphones almost never rear their ugly heads. The G930 has a few downsides, however; the fact that it works only with PCs and Macs limits its appeal and leaves console gamers high and dry.

Performance

Strong sound, but bass could be better. The Logitech G930 delivers just about everything you could want from a headset, reviewers say. The audio is crisp, clear and rarely subject to interference from other devices on the 2.4 GHz spectrum. Even so, users name a few minor flaws. The bass, while fine overall, could sound a bit richer, and the built-in Dolby 7.1 surround sound isn't terribly effective. The G930 also sports a shorter range than some wireless headphones.

Comfort

Sturdy design doesn't sacrifice comfort. The G930 is fairly weighty and a bit bulky, but reviewers say it's well padded and comfortable to wear during lengthy gaming sessions. That's crucial to serious players who clock many consecutive hours in their favorite titles, although some gripe about the push-and-hold design of the headphone's power button.

Value

PC and Mac gamers only. If you game on a computer, the Logitech G930 delivers good performance despite a few minor issues. That said, this wireless headphone isn't compatible with console gaming systems, making it useless for a large swath of the gaming public or those who have both PC and console systems with which they want to use headphones.
