In September, Logitech will ship a colorful assortment of gaming equipment, consisting of some preexisting merchandise with some recent tints, and one brand-new product: the $129 G733 Lightspeed gaming headset. With the exception of the $229 G915 TKL wireless mechanical keyboard, which is now supplied in white as an alternative of solely black, different equipment — the $39 G203 Lightsync wired mouse, the $59 G305 Lightspeed wireless mouse, and the G733 headset — will are available in 4 colours: blue, lilac purple, white, and black.
Since most of those merchandise have already been obtainable for some time, I’m going to concentrate on the G733 headset. It’s a light-weight, wireless gaming headset that doesn’t take itself too significantly. Impressively, it has many of the similar options because the $199.99 Logitech Pro X Lightspeed headset.
The G733 fees by way of USB-C; Logitech claims as much as 29 hours of battery life per cost. In the field, there’s a 2.4GHz Lightspeed USB receiver (dipped in the identical colour because the headset) that provides the headset compatibility with PCs and PS4s. The G733 additionally helps DTS X 2.zero digital encompass sound and has customizable Blue-branded microphone settings inside Logitech’s G Hub software program. So it hits quite a lot of the key beats at a cheaper price level.
Though this headset makes some compromises to satisfy a cheaper price level than the Pro X Lightspeed, they’re compromises I can positively dwell with. It’s extra light-weight at 278 grams, largely due to its all-plastic development, and it’s snug for all-day use due to its breathable ear cups and supportive suspension headband, each of that are machine cleanable. The colorful headband can be reversed for a distinct look or swapped out for a new colour bought by way of Logitech for $9.99 every.
Despite having barely smaller drivers (40mm versus 50mm within the Pro X), the sound efficiency of the G733 didn’t strike me as being noticeably worse, although the noise isolation isn’t pretty much as good. The bass additionally isn’t as punchy, however they function a balanced, highly effective sound that doesn’t put on me out.
I’m often irritated by LEDs and unusual design thrives in gaming equipment. The easier, the higher, I say. But I’m delighted by how quirky this headset is. I examined out the lilac purple-colored G733, and the colour remedy makes it stand out in comparison with virtually every part else on my desk — except for the placing blue G203 mouse that got here with it. The headset includes a vertical stripe of LEDs on the entrance of every ear cup, and also you can alter the colour and lighting impact within the G Hub software program or simply flip it off if it’s a bit too further for you.
If you’re trying to spruce up your gaming desk and discover some gear that speaks extra to your type, Logitech’s equipment look like a great way to do this. I’m smitten with the headset, however as for the mice, I’m going to carry my breath and hope for a lilac purple G502 Lightspeed, my favorite wireless gaming mouse.
