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 unicomp (http://pckeyboards.stores.yahoo.net/en104bl.html) serves me well. Very nice to type on. And fast, curiously. That may just be my nostalgic rose-colored glasses talking. I have no actual facts to back that up. Reply

    Engadget's review says:

    "Speaking of the battery, it did last a couple solid days when idle, but gave up the ghost after a severe Engadget work day of very heavy use."

    I was excited until I read that bit. That's pretty painful. How can the battery life be so bad when their other wireless mice go for months on a set of AAs?

    Don't really mind, the mouse comes with a USB cord that can be used while playing. As long as you remember to recharge it overnight it's fine, otherwise just plug it in and keep chugging along! Reply

    Two reasons:

    - the listed products are basically ridiculously overpriced crap which do not get any serious bash from the author
    - the article is basically PR

    Heck, most Apple reviews are MASSIVE PR moves but, I suppose we must expect these things. Heck End'Gadget is basically another section of Apple these days Reply

    'Serious bash' is subjective - this is a news article, not an indepth review or preview. We comment on the products as announced in the press release and any info the company in question likes to give us, and provide our critical analysis on the topic. A news item is also by definition, to a certain extent, PR, otherwise we would not be able to mention the brand, the item, or what it's used for - which means it essentially isn't an article, but a collection of meaningless words. We get very few serious keyboard/mouse news releases coming our way, and a lot of people like the Logitech series, deeming it newsworthy and of interest. You should note that we don't issue a news item every time a different graphics or memory company releases the same rebranded and repackaged product - only the new and exciting products we believe people will be interested in.

    I have yet to find a decent mouse. I have large hands, and the button my Razer Copperheads stick. I'm waiting on a nice, lightweight metallic laser mouse with software controls that work with the keyboard ALT+arrow keys or something, rather than having extra buttons on the mouse itself. Lightweight, good fit, durable, and fast. That's what I'm looking for. I don't care about lights, and not that much about cost if its solid (as long as its in reason). I've used to have the G7 and I hated it. Paid about $70 for it and it sits in my closet. Too heavy. Reply
