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.
