Logitech has been around the gaming peripherals business for quite some time now, and they’ve made some of the most popular gaming products out there. They also make some really high-quality audio products, and their G935 headphones are one of their recent efforts to create a splendid pair of gaming quality headphones. If you’re thinking about picking up a pair, here’s what you need to know about these before making your decision.
If you’re a hardcore gamer, then one of your top priorities is having a quality set of headphones. Good sound is essential for any kind of immersion. But what if you want to play without disturbing others? Even better, what if you could also listen to music and chat with friends simultaneously? Then look no further than Logitech’s G935.
These affordable, wireless headphones fit comfortably on anyone’s head and provide excellent audio playback—without sacrificing comfort or convenience. Besides giving you plenty of power in a sleek form factor, it also includes programmable buttons that make controlling your games easy from start to finish. And unlike most gaming-specific products on the market today, they don’t sacrifice style in order to get there.
Right out of the box, it’s obvious that Logitech put a lot of thought into its G935 headphones. The solid construction and high-quality design lead to a pair of headphones you don’t have to worry about breaking. The attached mic is adjustable so you can be confident it will work with any device, while also being sturdy enough to survive every scenario. Comfort is definitely an area where these headphones shine—the cushioned ear cups allow for extended gameplay sessions without discomfort, something I can’t say about other headsets in their price range.
With long hours of use in normal settings, my ears didn’t feel hot or sweaty at all. There are multiple controls on the G935 that allow you to adjust volume, mute your microphone or play/pause music without touching your phone or PC/console controller. When using voice chat, you’ll be able to hear game sounds over your own voice even when game volume is too high (and vice versa). Basically, no matter what type of gamer you are—casual or professional—these headphones make gaming easier and more enjoyable than before.
For the price, I expected a lot more from these headphones. The audio quality was not up to par compared to other gaming headsets. However, if you can overlook this shortcoming, there are benefits to using these headphones for gaming: they’re lightweight and comfortable to wear for long periods of time; they look great; and they have adjustable features so you can play comfortably with glasses on or adjust them depending on your head size.
If you spend most of your time in front of a computer monitor while gaming (or doing some intense audio work), I would recommend spending just a little more money and buying something better. If you’re a serious gamer, you might have a budget of several hundred dollars to spend on a new pair of gaming headphones. For quality audio, high-end headphones can add an extra dimension to your favourite games.
I like Logitech’s approach to gaming. Most people spend a lot of time in their headsets when they’re playing games, and it is nice to see a headset that tries to go someways in catering for that. The great thing about the Logitech G935 is that you can use them with your gaming consoles and personal computer for also streaming music, making VoIP calls, etc. I’m not sure how much usage you’ll get out of these headsets on your non-gaming devices, but at least they are there should you need them.
As far as sound quality goes, they sound good enough for casual play and my favourite feature (besides comfort) is that you can crank up whatever tunes you want and experience incredible DTS® Headphone:X 2.0 sounds. As far as wireless goes though, I had no issues walking around my house while listening.
