Logitech G Pro Gaming Headset Review
What exactly does a professional esports player need from one of the best gaming headsets? According to the marketing sensation of Logitech: this. G Pro was designed and built as part of the collaboration with pro gamers, and the result is a $ 90 strip-down model without RGB lighting or other gimmicks. Only artless black wired headsets with removable microphones and inline controls for volume and mute microphones. There she is. Think of it as the San Antonio Spurs of Gregg Popovich, who focused on fundamentals cruelly and threw out all showboating.
That doesn’t mean G Pro is sacrificing visual appeal for its simplicity. I prefer the all-black hidden design, which is only broken by the white Logitech logo on the earmuffs than the design companies like Asus and Astro often choose. At the top of the headband, there is the glossy ‘G gloss’ logo. And there is a ‘Pro’ on the side. Except for that, it’s all nice black curves and convincing construction materials. The headband itself is not soft with a lot of memory foam, but this is an absolute-light headset at 9.14 oz (259 g), so more padding isn’t needed.
Ear cushions come in two flavors: imitation leather mounted outside the box and a pair of additional microsuede pads. This faux leather well insulated against external noise, which is why it used in so many other gaming headsets (screaming on HyperX Kingston cans). And it gives the G Square an exceptional large square earcup design. It feels like it’s a must here. The microsuede option is more comfortable to breathe, but to be honest, they look like they left in someone’s pocket and accidentally put in the laundry. When they are attached to the headset, they break down the sleek and hidden appearance of the G Pro.
It brings us to an overall level of comfort: they are right. Not the best I’ve ever tested: HyperX Cloud Alpha seems to be printed to the exact dimensions of my skull and can’t be beaten. But the G Pro’s a little bit looser fit, and lighter design makes for a different type of comfort. Less like being held in a warm hug by your headset and more like forgetting that you are wearing it. Seriously, nine ounces. It’s very light, and it makes a difference after the first hour you wear it. The esports people are familiar with the line of suffering that presses on your head for longer sessions with a powerful headset, and they direct Logitech to an effective solution for that.
In terms of control, there are only two – the volume rollers and mute mic switches on braided mini-jack cables. Maybe to keep weight down, this inline control feels a little thin, but it works. I miss having a physical chat mix control on every headset that is not Steelseries Arctis now. Because I’m used to that little comfort, and you would imagine pro players would appreciate that especially.
Special praise must be provided for the microphone, which is one of the best electret headset microphone models in production. It filters out background noise effectively and articulate your voice clearly. But it also does an extraordinary job of reproducing the quality of the lower end of your voice. It can reach to a level that is frankly odd for a small microphone that can be removed and without sound. It is good for streaming quality areas and still placed after you bend it into position.
I’ve heard accounts of people who significantly improve sound quality by running G Pros through a preamp. But at 32 Ohm impedance, it’s not immediately clear why that will happen. That number tells you that it’s meant to run effortlessly. But it’s OK if you already have a preamp as part of your settings, it’s a good idea to experiment.
- Lacking low-end oomph
- Not as comfortable as some competing headsets
- Great sleek black design
- Incredibly light
- Unusually good mic
Conclusion > Although lacking passion for music and movies, games are predictable, where G Pros sounds the best. Voice many audio cues all at once in a broad sound stage – this is bread and butter. And it handles the task well enough that the whole package is still worth considering, especially at $ 90, where aesthetics are lean and thought a rare thing.
