Logitech G933 Reviews
Logitech has attached RGB lighting. Like most of the company’s modern lineup, the G933 features 16.8 million full-color sport profiles for the lighting strip on the back of each ear and the illuminated logo on the opposite side. Sure, it’s no use. But that looks good, and Logitech continues to offer some of the best lightings in the industry.
But the side lighting, the G933, is just a slimmer headset. The G930’s ears are very ugly, flat matte-finish plastic plates weighted with a very corporate Logitech logo and some chunky controls.
The G933 left a corporate look and instead featured a less prominent logo (and placement of the logo), as well as some decorative accents that gave a lighter aesthetic. Some of them are strange and a bit overdone – like the scattering of ornamental triangles inside a headband – but for the most part, these changes make the G933 look more like a modern headset.
The G933 also moves the buttons to the back of the headset, which helps with a clean and neat appearance. All controls sit on the end of the left ear, and each has a unique shape for easier memorization if that’s what you want. You can control power through the switch, turn on EQ settings, turn on or turn off surround sound, play lighting effects, turn off the microphone, and set the volume. You can also custom the three “G” keys in the middle (labeled G1, G2, and G3) with a ton of other preset commands – or the whole macro if you want.
The design is a bit pretty, though useless. With a headset that I can use as a decent street headphone, like Polk Striker Pro, it has a microphone that can be removed or folded handy. The G933 is so big, so I doubt I will use it on my computer. The style of the microphone speaks to Logitech’s ingenuity more than practical applications.
A more useful design aspect is the convenient storage of the USB dongle, considering I have misplaced the wireless dongle in the past. You throw the plastic plate in the left ear cup. The right plate also appears if you want to replace the G933 battery in the future.
My only problem with G933, and a reason for some of you to stay away: It’s tight. When it gets better, the longer, I use it, but this headset still tends to grip my head and make me sick after a few hours of use. Corsair’s Wireless Void is slipping more and more, but it feels more comfortable – like Astro A50 if you are willing to accept a price increase.
G933 certainly sounds good. Running the standard “Flat” stereo setting, it’s a headset that is bright enough and strong. I was able to do it a little more low-end – and I immediately adjusted it using the “Drop the Bass” (eye-roll) settings and then changed from there.
Like most headset manufacturers today, Logitech praises the capabilities of the G933 7.1. I will give them this: The G933 has a surround sound that is simulated better than most. Unlike some of the leading competitors (I’m looking at you, Corsair), activating surround doesn’t damage the sound of the G933. There is a bit of distortion visible, and in some games (Battlefield, for example), it even does a decent job of emulating surrounds.
But those moments are rare & far between, and even the application of pretty good surround sound in a headset doesn’t measure up even in the weakest real-world multi-speaker settings. I ended up leaving the settings most of the time because it added very little or actively reduced what I listened to. For example, messing up sound together and creating a jumble of noise or making a central channel. G933 in stereo is good enough.
As for range, I can get the usual 10 meters from the dongle before the audio goes down, even in my high-intervention apartment. But I noticed that after the sound was interrupted and I returned to my PC, it took longer to find the signal than other headsets.
Battery life is a bit disappointing – just because I’ve only experienced the Battle of Corsair Void Wireless and Razer Man O ‘. My usage averaged about eight hours before needing to be refilled. Although this is better than most wireless headsets, it means that compared to the additional 12-hours that you get with Man O ‘War & Void Wireless.
Two last notes, Logitech has fixed some of the initial problems with G933. So it’s safe to ignore these points if you hear them. First, now you can change how long the G933 is idle before it turns off. And second, the headset no longer estimates “50 percent battery” is “Low,” and therefore won’t start beeping every two minutes for four hours. That is my biggest complaint and has been resolved with a firmware update.
The Logitech G933 will be a pretty good headset with a list price of $ 200. With a reasonably permanent selling price of $ 150 to $ 180, this is probably the best price-to-performance ratio you will find once a wireless headset used.
The Bad > The Logitech G933 design which makes your head look really big or the uncomfortable Creaks and also the slightly scratchy fabric earcups.
The Good > The Logitech G933 has a big, kicking bass wich you can feel while walking around the street and the 3.5mm jack that does tons of amazing things.
The Conclusion > Logitech Wireless gaming headset Artemis Spectrum G933 is recommended for people who like to browsing or gaming at the coffee shop or hotspot area as it’s easy to carry around. It also has cool features and long battery life.
