In September, Logitech will ship a colourful 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 wi-fi mechanical keyboard, which is now provided in white as an alternative of solely black, different equipment — the $39 G203 Lightsync wired mouse, the $59 G305 Lightspeed wi-fi 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, wi-fi gaming headset that doesn’t take itself too significantly. Impressively, it has a lot of the identical options because the $199.99 Logitech Pro X Lightspeed headset.
The G733 costs through 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 shade 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 lots of the key beats at a lower cost level.
Though this headset makes some compromises to satisfy a lower cost level than the Pro X Lightspeed, they’re compromises I can undoubtedly stay with. It’s extra light-weight at 278 grams, largely due to its all-plastic development, and it’s comfy for all-day use due to its breathable ear cups and supportive suspension headband, each of that are mechanically cleanable. The colourful headband might be reversed for a distinct look or swapped out for a brand new shade 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 nearly 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 aggravated 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 therapy makes it stand out in comparison with virtually the whole lot else on my desk — other than the hanging blue G203 mouse that got here with it. The headset includes a vertical stripe of LEDs on the entrance of every ear cup, and you may modify the colour and lighting impact within the G Hub software program or simply flip it off if it’s a bit too additional for you.
If you’re seeking to spruce up your gaming desk and discover some gear that speaks extra to your model, 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 favourite wi-fi gaming mouse.
