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.

    My origonal G15 and MX1000 are still going strong in BF2142, COD, and a few other games I play with my buddies from back home. I play almost exclusively off my G keys, the macro kit has been great with Vista(yeah...yeah, it was available when I got my Q6600). I'll probably pick up the new G510 and finally kick my G15 down to my brother, who killed his a yr or 2 ago...we havn't been able to find a blue one, and we both liked the extra keys with the separations for remapping, and playing with the macros.

    I still have my Saitek Eclipse for day to day use w/ lighted keys for nighttime.
    I also still really like my Logitech MX518 wired mouse.

    Logitech has always been good in this arena. So I am looking forward to how the reviews will be. I am always so picky with these products. There are many people that just exist with using $10 keyboards and mice that randomly skip on their mousing surfaces, but I need my things to work properly.

    It's interesting that these items can be bought for next to nothing, as we are reminded, but they always are worth an extra investment to me. It's what you manually interface with every second of computer use. So paying extra for something so vital, that can have effect and impact daily, makes sense to me for many reasons. Although, I'll be waiting for these prices to slip a bit before looking closely.

    The problem is once you get accustomed to something like a keyboard/mouse it is hard to change, even if it is supposedly an upgrade the change can be tough. That's also a testament to Logitech's previous products in this arena, which is why I will look closely at their products next buying cycle.

    Good to see they went back to the additional buttons that my G15 has. My backlight LEDs flicker at times, otherwise I've been happy with the keyboard. I haven't found a "must have" use for the lcd though. Reply

    For me, the LCD allows me to see who's on TeamSpeak or Ventrilo. Once you get used to this functionality, it's hard to go back to on-screen overlays that take up real estate that might otherwise be used for seeing more of the field. Additionally, it's nice to have the LCD clock readily seen. I don't have space for a clock over my desk, so the LCD clock helps me keep track of time when I'm playing single player games. Reply

    i had a dream last night that i returned my G9 gaming mouse to some mom and pop computer store without the packaging. they accepted the return, but i felt really rude. i wonder if i was doing that in an alternate reality or something. Reply

    ...i didnt still have a new in box G11 that i shrink wrapped in with the packs of desecant that i collected from every part in all 15 builds i did this year. my first G11 has lasted me a good couple years now, and my second one that i opened for use at a friends house is hardly used at all, probably only spent about 50-70 hours gaming on it and then it went idle when i moved all my comps back home. im probably set on gaming keyboards for the next 5-10 years LOL Reply

    1 disappointment with the gaming keyboard programable key is, although you can do LUA scripts, the functionality is basic. A key comination cannot repeat itself without disabling other G keys (because it would occupy execution time within the single thread) leading to other key press events unable to trigger

    For repetition the macro has option of doing so. But this disallow the use of LUA scripting which means I can't, say program a magic key that switch repeating keystroke patterns, by using other G keys as mode switches.

    All this new "gaming" gear and yet they still can't be bothered to make a newer than 10+ year old thumb trackball. Reply
