Logitech® Wireless Gaming Headset G930

Starting with the basics, this wireless gaming headset has a range of up to 40 feet (12 metres) and up to 10 hours usage time per 2.5 hour charge (depending on usage).  The charging dock is via USB, and can be charged while in use when connected.  The ear cups offer up to 26 dB of noise isolation, and give a 20Hz-20kHz frequency response.  The audio stream from is an uncompressed 48kHz, and the unidirectional microphone picks up in the 100Hz-75kHz region.

 

There’s no easy way to say this, but these cost $159.99  (£149.00) direct from Logitech.  For a lot of people, that’s an extraordinary amount of money to spend on a headset.  For your money, you get 7.1 surround sound, three programmable G-keys (for music, voice morphing, chat clients), a noise cancelling microphone with a light that glows red when muted, on-ear audio volume controls, and a plug and play setup.

Logitech have attempted to build a wireless headset with comfort and longevity in mind – the memory foam headband, plush ear pads and long battery life are examples of this.  However, most of the features listed here, most of us would expect on a decent wireless headset.  Creative are one the main competitors in the market, and their wireless headset ranges from $80 - $160.

Proof of this headset being worth the money will undoubtedly be in the pudding, or whether you can hear that enemy sneaking up to you around the corner.

    Actually the first thought in my head told me that America spells it with a z. -ise to -ize was the reasoning behind it. Ah well, lesson learned! :)

    Can I pretty, pretty please have an updated TrackMan? I have a wireless one, but having to carry that long cord and huge receiver defeats the point of a wireless mouse with my laptop. I'd take one with a micro-receiver that barely sticks out of a USB plug in lieu of actual bluetooth. I know some will say a trackball is a terrible gaming mouse, but I really like it, and have no problems with it in an RTS like SC2. Reply

    My G15 and G7 are going well but I am still waiting for a rerelease/update of the Trackman Marble FX. I went through 4 back in my lan party a week days and there is nothing better for shooters. 2-300 bucks for a used one on ebay and amazon is a testament. Reply

    I am so stoked about all these products. I've had my g15 for about 4 years now, and I love it. But its getting old, i spilled soda on it once, and I have been look to replace it. OMFG G510 is the best news i heard all week. I am can't wait to buy it now.
    Also those headphones seem sick. I so want them too. I really just might drop 160 for those puppies.

    Hey wheres the anandtech 'bust it open' philisophy here? I can lend you a screwdriver and knife :)

    I want to see if the batteries are standard size. Have had several so called charge only peripherals its not uncommon to find normal size batteries inside them, meaning if we do have to swap then its possible to drop in a set of rechargables kept hot.

    *me waits for an article update*

    Anything tagged with News on the front page is News. So it's stuff we do not have in the labs to "bust open" unfortunately. Just a heads up of what to expect if the post is tagged News.

    Won't have a wirell device near my desktop. Hate batteries, charging stations, etc. The headset looks a bit cumbersome.. OK, it looks just downright klutzy. For that kind of bickies, give me a nice pair of Sennheisers.

    As for as keyboards, it looks nice and all, but please make that display fold up out of the way when I am just doing general office type functions. Nice enough for what they do, but I can't afford to be swapping out devices when I switch out tasks.... So, for me, my G5 mouse fills most of the functionality that I need, as well my good old Sun keyboard...
