2 out of 5 eggsGood headset with issues

Pros: Fits comfortably
The long charging cable allows you to have a wide range of movement while charging

Cons: I bought this about 6 months ago. One thing you will read on just about ever rating is:
This headset keeps turning on and off.

I contacted Logitech and apparently they know this is an issue and their way of fixing it is to replace it. (which usually means you paying shipping) The problem is that the headset wireless runs on a lower frequency and can clash with your wifi. To work around this problem you need to login to your modem and set the WiFi frequency to run on a specific channel (Usually it will find the channel with the least interference). From my personal settings I found that setting it on channel 12 (of 12). Since I am not in college this works for me. G o d have mercy on your soul if you are in college and living in a dorm room with a WiFi signal coming from every room. That being said this is a work around and not a fix that Logitech should provide.

My second concern about this product is the microphone and how little it picks up. With sleeping kids in the next room and a wife trying to get to sleep early I find myself needing to talk fairly quiet in order to not wake them. In order to do this I have my windows recording device maxed, my G930 microphone maxed, skype or teamspeak input devices maxed and I STILL have to have the mic almost touching my mouth for them to hear me. The Logitech software and windows input devices gives no option to have a microphone boost which is rather disappointing. I had microphones 5 years ago with that option.

Other Thoughts: I think this product HAD potential. It is super comfortable and sounds great. The constant turning on and off was quite annoying but once worked around it was doable for me. The dealbreaker for me was the microphone and how I cant adjust to pick up someone speaking softly/whispering 2 inches away from it.

Bottomline: I would suggest something else or an improved version of this in the future. It has a few things that need to be worked on for me to buy another G930

3 out of 5 eggsIffy

Pros: Great range, crystal clear mic/speakers, easy to use.

Cons: When battery is low it disconnects and reconnects CONSTANTLY. Additionally, after only a few months it seems my charger port is a little off and I have to wedge a piece of paper between the plastic of the charger and the headphones themselves to force the charger to an angle. Not too big a deal, really, but I expected better.

1 out of 5 eggsBuggy Tech - Buyer Beware

Pros: When it works its great.

Cons: This device cuts out constantly. Logitech can attribute this to interference all they want but this excuse is largely unacceptable. If they couldn't figure out how to get this tech to mingle with other wireless tech with absolutely minimal issues then it should've never been released. To call this a "Gaming Headset" is a joke. Its more like the headset that will cause you to fail miserably at anything competitive. DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS.

3 out of 5 eggsOwned for years. Still works, but getting a new different headset

Pros: I have been using this headset model since it's been out pretty much over 5 years. It's worked ever since then but there are a lot of drawbacks I hit with these headsets and I'm finally making a switch out. Corsair H2100 greyhawks here I come!

7.1 audio is a pro, but now its a lot more common for a lot more new headsets.

The Buttons on the side of the headset are definitely a plus, I set up mine to let me select which audio device is default, speakers or headset. Also the mute button lets you quickly mute yourself when you're in the kitchen with these and you're on Skype with your friends, you don't want them hearing the blender going with more than 10 people in the call. It allows you to not have to keep moving the mic up and down just to mute, just a quick button.

Cons: For the years I've had these, I do have a lot to say in the cons section. I did make it 3 stars because for what it is, I was able to get a lot of use out of it, and it was the first gaming style 7.1 headset available for the price range I wanted it.

Lets start:

The build quality is very bad, The plastic breaks easily with parts that logitech won't sell you to replace and if you wanted such parts replaced, you will have to send it in to them, and that would be under warranty, so once the warranty is out, you're in for bad luck. The first part of the headset that gets really annoying is the hinges that hold the earcups on your headband, and it now sits lopsided on my head, and its been liek this for many years, It breaks within a few months of regular use. Also the mic boom itself also breaks close to the swivel and it looks really hideous and it also looks very week. The Ear cup leather also wears out , faster than I see other leather products, but that could just be me, I used these headsets daily for more than 10 hours a day. So much for flight simulators, hehe don't blame me. The leather earcup cushions can be replaced with non genuine ones which now feel comfortable for me, but that's part of wear and tear. You can get the non genuine replacements from that store we all know, that electronic-bay(wink wink) Just noting it wears a little faster. I did go through my first pair in a few months, maybe 3 months, and I had to send it in for warranty replacement so that I could get all three of these problems resolved.

On my second set, I tried my best to keep it from breaking, but it can't really be avoided, it will break in the same points and very early. I was grew tired of having to go to the post office to ship it, so I just might bonded the parts back, after years and years and years, the plastic is un-bondable anymore because parts just keep falling off and there isn't anything really left to bond to.

Last thing, it does cut out, and used to cut out a lot during regular use, now it usually only cuts out on me when I'm far away from the dongle, but I assume that's just because I now have since moved from my older place and my new room is solid cement, and a lot of interference frequencies are blocked out. That or the software has developed over the 5 years of use, they did fix the bass overload problem.

Other Thoughts: Logitech did pay for shipping and crossshipped my replacement for no delay in having to wait too long for the replacement, which was nice, however that is a side note and I would not be sure if they still do this cross shipping, this was 5 years ago.

Now I finally made a switch away from these headsets to the corsair ones which should arrive today (fingers crossed). I've read reviews on them and that they are basically better and lower priced(MSRP) in build quality and the audio quality is way better which is something I notice between my current g930s and a set of sennheiser HD380 pro. The only thing I think I'll miss from this is the convenience of the mute button and the 3 G keys you can program for basically anything. The mute button especially, I mean you can also just run a script on your desktop for hotkeys from AHK program for switching audio default devices.

Also I would not buy this product for any more than 60-70$ brand new, I have seen it go on sale for that price like within a year after release I would say.

2 out of 5 eggsWorst Head Phones Ever

Pros: Sound Quality is Great, Look is Awesome

Cons: Will not stay connected, WiFi intereference cuts sound in and out, Rechargeable battery dies after 1 year, horrible customer support on this particular product, search the internet for "G930 keeps cutting out" thousands of complaints online. DO NOT BUY.

Other Thoughts: This problem is years old, still no fix suggested from Logitech, no idea why they're still selling it.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat headset when it works

Pros: Sounds great when it works

Cons: Whenever the microwave is turned on on the other side of my house the headset completely cuts out until it is turned off. Also every 10-30 minutes the headset just disconnects for about 10 seconds. I purchased the newegg extended warranty and they won't fix the headset until the 1 year manufacturer warranty is up. Which, sucks becuase I paid for the guarenteed 5 day repair window, and now I am at teh mercy of Logitech customer service, and on their site it is not easy to submit a claim, I have to register the headset and am not even sure if I have the S/N documentation, also the S/N is not printed on the headset.

5 out of 5 eggsLogitech G930 - Science Wins

Pros: - Pretty solid wireless range, from what I can tell. There are a few... weird... things about this thing's wireless that I will touch on in Cons.

- 7.1 surround is great. I don't have a sound card, but the fact that this is a USB headset means that I don't need a sound card. Everything sounds great. And for some games like XCOM that have weird issues with surround sound (namely, in XCOM's cutscenes for me), you can just turn it off with the flick of a switch, no having to open your Logitech software to do it.

- I'm no audiophile, only a gamer, but I like listening to music with this headset anyway. I've read in many reviews how many gaming headsets have weak highs and are bass-heavy. This headset is somewhat bass-heavy, giving it a great punch in games (explosions in GTA 5 and War Thunder sound amazing!). Right now I'm listening to Linkin Park "Numb" and while the highs aren't perfect, they are still very strong.

- Microphone is real good. I was using Skull Candy earbuds with an inline mic - the mic was good, but my clanmates on Teamspeak noticed the difference the first time I greeted them on TS with this headset. This mic is pretty good as far as sound quality is concerned.

- These headphones seal extremely well. In other words, they are comfortable. One thing that I was afraid of when buying this headset was that I would start sweating under the leather, but thankfully that did not happen. Trust me, if you like clean sound, you're going to want a headset with leather. It seals outside noise and keeps the inside noise, it really helps the sound vs my older headset with cloth. Also, the earcups fold 90 degrees so that you can lay them flat on your chest and it really is comfortable. I even wear them around my neck at the dinner table sometimes, putting it on after dinner. Overall, the ergonomics and wireless of this headset, combined with its impressive sound, make it great for just around-the-house use.

- Great battery life, I can push this for 7 hours and take 2 or 3 to recharge.

- This headphone has extra buttons and a volume control wheel. If I'm downstairs and listening to music, the extra buttons and wheel are incredibly useful. Also, the Logitech gaming software lets you easily add profiles for your different games so that you can automatically use the buttons for what you want to. I personally did not use the buttons for gaming, since I typically have my hands on the mouse and keyboard and don't need or want to reach up to my left ear region to press the buttons.

- The Logitech software's pretty good. It doesn't slow up my system and seems pretty efficient and effective. It tells you battery life, and helps you configure your headset. You can fine tune stuff but I haven't done that, I thought it sounded great already. And it includes a free voice changer! Great for messing with people over Skype or Teamspeak! Refer to Other Thoughts for my rig specs, though. I don't know how well it will run for you.

Cons: - Whenever someone is using a microwave within range of this headset, there is a loud buzzing static interference. Very weird.

- I mentioned how the headset easily pairs up with the base. Well, sometimes it has issues synchronizing with the base. The base comes with a green LED to help you keep track of the headphone's status, helping to alleviate this. My primary annoyance with this headset is that sometimes it just doesn't want to sync with the computer, especially just after I plug in the base adapter after using my monitor speakers. It keeps switching between monitor speakers and trying to use the headset. After a moment of frustration the headset turns itself back off and stops trying to sync. Eventually I have to unplug and replug the adapter, and plug the headset into the base to force it to sync, and it always works, but nonetheless, it's still really annoying. Not really Logitech's fault, it's just how USB headsets like my previous one work.

- $160 USD? Well, darn. That's expensive. I got it during Cyber Monday for about half that, though, so I'm pretty happy. It's worth it, but $160 is still pretty steep, and I was considering this headset out of my price range until it went on sale.

- I mentioned how the 7.1 surround sound is amazing. And it is. But don't have extremely high expectations for normal sound without surround. And remember, this headset was designed and meant for surround sound. Don't use this outside of surround sound unless you're having issues with surround sound in a particular application. The regular sound is, quite frankly, underwhelming.

Other Thoughts: CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K
Mobo: Asus Maximus VII HERO
GPU: Club3D Radeon R9 290 "Royal Ace" (not available on Newegg)

THE BOTTOM LINE:
This is a great headset. While the price tag can seem awful steep, the headset compensates for the price tag by having some pretty good wireless (as long as you don't have a microwave frequently operating near you) and great 7.1 surround sound quality. Overall the build quality (which I didn't have room to mention under Pros) is as expected. I haven't had any problems with the physical build quality whatsoever. I wear them when I'm at my computer and when I walk around, controlling stuff like music and volume on the fly whenever I want. I hang them on my flatscreen monitor when they aren't in use. They're in perfect condition after half a year of use. Even though they have some minor issues with microwaves and wireless syncing, these are only minor annoyances rather than deal-breaking problems. Five eggs for this amazing piece of gaming equipment!

And you can get them elsewhere for less than $160. I don't want to breach the Review Guidelines, but if you look hard enough, you can still get almost a good a bargain as I did.

2 out of 5 eggsVery fragile

Pros: -Very comfortable
-Quick to recharge
-Sound quality is great
-Microphone is top-quality

Cons: -Very fragile, broke after only a year - You have to be very delicate with these headphones
-Faux leather starts peeling off after only a few weeks
-Impossible to clean
-Wireless signal cuts out infrequently and doesn't go that far
-Wireless signal can't go through walls easily
-Earmuff design can quickly become uncomfortably hot if you live in an area that gets warm like California
-Expensive

Other Thoughts: Too expensive for something that lasts for only a year before breaking

3 out of 5 eggsthe good the bad and the ugly

Pros: The ears rotate (this is the best feature helps with wear and tear)
100$
cheap price
wireless for 100$
metal headband with comfortable cushion
a lot of room for your ears with sturdy yet soft earpads with amazing noise cancellation system where you can very well hear your own voice.
Ok audio.
7.1 SURROUND SOUND (if you can call it that)
pretty good at first

Cons: IMMERSIVE 7.1 SURROUND SOUND is kinda bad its not real 7.1
The headset cant handle singing yes singing. The headset has a hard time with music. The high pitch tones are just to much .
Plastic peccie on the ear joint snapped from simple wear and tear three times because of cheap plastic, small screws, and poor disbursement of weight design, putting all the pressure when taking off your headphones on 4 terrible placed screws.
I was able to fix it twice after some time with my mlg fixing skills, but the third time the plastic was too far gone and in 3 pieces.
It still works wire wise but with a little battery life and slow recharge rate.
I think the signals from my logitech mouse and headset mess with one another because i have problems with the headset disconnecting.
The charger wire falls out ALL THE TIME. they have the perfect technology for one that doesn't fallout as seen in their g700s wireless mouse series. I guess Logitech thinks we don't move as much as a mouse, but it would only cost them proble 1 dollar a piece to fix all of this but as of now it doesn't work.
Another little thing to know is that the mic is mildly raspy.

Other Thoughts: I have owned 5 pro gaming headsets in my life. Many that broke but the logitech g 930 was the first wireless one, and for such a good price.
It lasted me 2 months before breaking. I tried to redeem my warranty. Logitechs return customer was very bad in my opinion intentional so no one returns anything. I talked to a guy with little grasp on the english language, then tried to explain how a cheap plastic component snapped where the screws held in place the rotational bracket so the earpiece joint could connect and swivel.(ya)
I had to basically prove to him that this happened through simple wear and tear. I don't think he has ever seen the headset itself
So i said Whatever and grabbed some tape.
Now i have a half broken headset that i have to fix every now and again with alot of problems.
If you don't care about all of this, they by all means this is the right headset for you.

Logitech I would be happy to explain more to you to help improve the design instead of just complaining. Contact me here at this account to know more. Or by email this drop box email (redcharger37@gmail.com)
