Specifications

The G930 uses 2.4GHz wireless connectivity and has a range of 40 feet. It streams uncompressed 48KHz audio and has dual antennas for reception. The mic has noise cancellation and the headset supports virtual 7.1 surround sound. The headphones are able to block up to 26dB of noise and the battery is good for up to ten hours per charge. The G930 is up for pre-order now at $159.99.

In Use

The Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930 isn’t the first wireless headset I have tired. I have used a wireless headset in the past from LTB and came away happy with that set. I had high hopes for the Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930 and came away happy with the performance they offer. The battery life is very good; I wore the headset for several days of gaming and listening to music here and there without issue. If that battery does go dead you can connect them to charge via an included cable and continue playing.

 

The mic swivels and has a frequency response of 100Hz to 75Khz. That really means nothing other than it can easily pick up your voice when gaming. The mic also does a good job of blocking noise in the room like a ceiling fan or computer with lots of fans. The ear cups are well padded and fit comfortably. They do get a bit hot after a while and after several hours of gaming and you will notice the heft as well.

The sound quality is actually very good with nice bass and good all around sound quality. The snug fitting ear cups do good job keeping the bass in and outside sound out as well. The 7.1 virtual surround effects do make the audio sound different. Whether that difference is good or bad is up to what you like. The good news is they sound great in normal stereo mode and the virtual 7.1 can be turned off if you don’t like it. Overall, this is one of the best headsets for movies and gaming that I have tried. The Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930 is certainly not cheap, but if you want quality, they will fit the bill.

Verdict

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Good bass
  • No wires

Cons

  • Hot after extended wear
 

Conclusion

The Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930 is a very nice headset with no wires that suffers from no noticeable lag and works for everything from gaming to watching movies. The G930 isn’t cheap, but the good stuff rarely is.
