Logitech G930 headset review

Written by

My first review, EVAR!  thumbs-down

Logitech’s site – Logitech G930 Wireless 7.1 Heaset – On Amazon, Logitech G930 Wireless 7.1 Headset

I was looking for a pair of surround headphones – and found these.  I’m not going to go into technical details and specs because, honestly, who gives a shit.

How do they sound, how do they function, would I buy them again?

They sound fine, and definitely offer a surround gaming experience (although simulated, it works fine).  They lack bass – so forget listening to music with them, if you’re an audiophile.

The mic works very well.

Function-wise, the buttons on the side of the headset are mostly useless, although I do use them to control Spotify.  I tried setting one of the buttons to my middle mouse click – this worked previously, but a later rebuild of my PC, I could not get the software to recognize the middle mouse click.

Durability and would I buy again.  Absolutely not.  They have a technical issue, where the USB receiver fails, this is a common issue.  Logitech’s response is to “go buy another receiver“.

Overall – this is very nice headset, when it works.  Unfortunately due to technical issues on a $160 piece of equipment, I cannot recommend that anyone else buy this.
