This review is from: Logitech G930 USB Connector Circumaural Wireless Gaming Headset
They do seem well made.
Wireless headset, Concept is Amazing!!!
If you have not yet purchased these yet, you need to be aware of the issues that these headsets have. Its not just some, it is ALL, users who posted good reviews probably did so right out of the box without actually using them in real world situations, If you do not believe me please check out the Logitech support forum for headsets at forums.logitech.com/t5/Headphones-Headsets-Microphones/bd-p/headphones
I don't know about you other G930 Users out there but personally I do not appreciate being scammed out of whatever you paid. These headsets are advertised to do things they do not at all do, Logitech doesn't seem to want to address that these problems even exist let alone repair them.
Without further ado:
The problems you will have if you purchase these:
Noise Cancelling does not work - Actually its severely irritating that I cannot have and open mic and friends complain even on PPT mode.
Sound out of only the right speaker in some apps - 7.1 huh? seems more like Mono to me... (Skype being one of these apps)
Crackling \ Distortion - This one is getting kind of old.
iTunes has serious issues with theses...
No Disable of the Auto power off function that cant seem to tell if the headset is actually in use and powers off the headset every 10 min in some apps.
Locked to Tape recorder 16khz Mic sound quality (not that it matters without noise cancelling I would need to have a sound booth to actually sound good on these and forget using my mouse or keyboard)
Restarts with headset turned on just to get it to sync with the USB plug so you can use it...
Unknown device - Windows no longer recognizes it and it will no longer work at all. Nothing changed on the computer it wasn't even after a restart, it just stopped worki
All this after only 3 months of ownership. I am patently waiting to receive a replacement from Logitech for this issue, only two more weeks without any sound at all to go!!!
They have great potential but without addressing these problems they are but expensive paper weights, if you're into that type of thing cool, otherwise you may want to wait till a more complete version of these or their software is available.
This is sad to me that I am posting this review. I have always liked Logitech products and have been a great supporter of them for 15 or more years, always opting for Logitech keyboards and mice, webcams, speakers, remote controls, etc for myself and the companies that I consult for. I am currently typing this on my G15 Keyboard, next to it is my G13 Gamepad, my G500 Mouse, my F710 Gamepad, my Orbit AF webcam, a harmony remote, etc, but I count on headsets so as to not disturb the baby when I am gaming at night, and these ones have FAILED me.
