    These are a very well designed and great sounding set of headphones, but they seem to have a lot of connectivity issues. Google them before you get too excited about buying a pair.

      I had a similar issue with the G930, but after enough testing i worked out that there was interference from some of the things around me.

      • +1 vote

        Exactly the same with me - G930 has the same issues but once I narrowed down what was causing the interference it was then perfect.

        Now trying to decide if the upgrade is worth it as my 930’s are still fine.

          iv been thinking the same thing….. i kick myself i didnt get it from the amazon sale a while back for $132. so id prob say buy it.

        •  

          I have 2 pairs of G930s - absolutely zero issues with the connection - rock solid from day 1.

          I bought a pair of G933s (they were on a great special) and immediately had issues when used in the same place and in exactly the same manner. They would constantly lose connection and needed factory reset to reconnect - totally unreliable.

          I ended up returning the G933s and went back to the G930s, which are still going strong.

      I've had these for nearly two years without any connectivity issues (on a pc and laptop anyway).

    •  

      Mine would always cut out, it was driving me insane! No idea if it's interference or what. Happened more in certain games compared to others

      •  

        I definitely did not have a good experience using this headphones in terms of connectivity.
        However, I have to admit it's pretty comfortable to wear for long hours of gaming

        These things run 2.4TGHz same frequency as wifi and bluetooth.

        Don't put the dongle within 14cm of your wifi or Bluetooth antenna.

        You can use a small usb extension cable and just have it dangle at the back of the PC.

        Most of the Logitech stuff comes with a small stiff extension cable for the USB dongle..

      •  

        Do you have the RGB LEDs set to cycle? That caused connectivity issues for me, and my headset worked perfectly as soon as I turned that off.

    •  

      Haven't had any connectivity issues myself and they are amazing sounding headphones.

      My only real gripe is that you can't easily control game audio and chat audio separately on Xbox. Most headsets have this issue but at this price point it's competing with Turtle Beach headsets that do allow separate chat and audio volumes via separate scroll wheels. Personally I think these sound much better than the Turtle Beach ones so there is a trade off.

      One issue that some people do encounter is that the headset can easily fall off most people's heads. I think it's due to the padding on the headband and the way the headset is balanced. It doesn't fall off my head but I'm bald. All of my friends tried it and if they tilted their head back the headphones fell off their heads.

    •  

      Seems to be a hit or miss with the connectivity issues. Been using mine for about a year now and it works awesome and haven't had even one disconnect. I bought mine for $200ish back then and it felt worth it even then.. but at $139 it is definately a bargain for a pretty good gaming headset, has decent audio for music listening too which surprised me even more. Only thing that is a negative to me is the comfort, the top head strap padding is kinda thin so it gets uncomfortable, also abit of strain around my large ears. Also RGB lighting is pretty cool and adjustable to many colors if your into that kind of thing, but I turn mine off to save juice. Would rate 7/10 overall though.

    I've had them for over 3 years now and they have never missed a beat.
    Have not experienced any problems with the battery or connection.
    Wear these regularly while exercising and the headset and especially the earpads become wet with sweat but still working fine.

    Now this is a good deal, the other was terrible.

      @Axelstrife, that was best price I could find, now it is updated accordingly.

        The build quality, the Sound quality and the price didn't make it a very good deal IMO.

        There's more to a great deal than just being the cheapest price.

        •  

          If this a good deal for you, then that wasn't a great deal price wise, but that depends on one's preferrences and perception.

            @OZA: I meant that if this deal didn't exist and the other was still the cheapest i still wouldn't call it a good deal due to the item just not being worth that price.

  •  

    I've been burnt with Logitech headsets over the yeas due to the way they are made, mostly plastic, so i've steered clear, they still the same?

  •  

    Thank you Op. This looks like the cheapest ever been.

    White colour that is exclusive to jb is also same price.

    steer clear. these are plastic trash. $130 is about right. $200 isn't.

  •  

    Thanks for the post mate, great deal :)
    - apparently these slide off ones head. something spectacular https://youtu.be/vpelJr7owPI?t=279

    •  

      Well they're not designed to be worn at a 45 degree angle like some cans can be. They're rock solid when sitting directly upright though. Mad dashes to the fridge aren't a problem if worn properly.

    •  

      I have no issues with them sliding off my head. Even when trying they don't budge. I am a big fan of them. I came from a G430 so these are worlds ahead.

  •  

    Don't update the firmware ever. I have the white version and don't recommend this.

  •  

    I feel like a mad dog to get this for $70 newegg balck friday

  •  

    Agree with some above, this headset is very plastic and poor build quality and there are many known issues which relate to its construction. It is okay for the first 6 months or so but then the cushion glue fails, power button fails etc.

    Yes I did a warranty and still got the issues along with fixing it myself several times, so bin it went

    Lol go buy some audio Technica if you want to hear sound with great soundscape. These gaming headsets are absolute garbage and there gps positional tracking tech is rubbish also. Go buy some audio Technica adh ad900x and call it a day. I've had heaps of these so called gaming headsets and none sound good or last for that matter. However hyperx would most likely be better at a better price point aswell, Imo

    •  

      I am tempted to get the ATH-AD900X. I have the ATH-M50X and they're excellent for music but pretty terrible for gaming and nowhere near as good as the G933 when it comes to gaming. I hear the ATH-AD900X is better for gaming.

      •  

        Hi GunnerMcdagget, you can't go wrong with a ATH-AD900X for gaming and also they are excellent for music all types and gaming. Just add a AntLion ModMic either one and you are set. So much better sounding than these cans and also the m50x.
        I also own the a50 and A40 Astro headsets and they don't come close to these bad boys. Here is a really good detailed review from memory.

        https://www.head-fi.org/showcase/audio-technica-air-dynamic-...

        find more for studio dj/ bass type music. I love my ATH-AD900X headphones and they work with anything. Good luck with your purchase, if you have any questions let me know.

  •  

    I owned these - they do what they say on the tin, but they don't feel or sound premium at all. Probably still a good deal at this price but don't buy these expecting anything special.

  •  

    I bought a pair recently.

    Question: What is the mic quality on other people's G933s like? Mine is absolutely shocking…. muffled, and not clear at all. Have tried tweaking all settings available. Certainly not what I'd expect from a top of the line product from Logitech.

    I'm wondering if this is normal, and just a flaw of the G933s, or if I have a faulty set?

    Other than the mic issue, my thoughts:

    Pros:
    * Sound pretty damn good for the price
    * Haven't had any connectivity issues

    Cons
    * Absolute shocking mic sound quality.
    * Build quality - look and feel OK, but on the head you can hear the plastic frame creaking with any movement - very annoying.
    * Uncomfortable - the "head band" for some reason digs into my hair (sounds weird, but is true) and is quite uncomfortable.

    Interested to find out anything better in a similar price point?

      have a squiz at the video review shown above for linus. he does a mike test. that will show u what u should expect

      I find the G933 extremely uncomfortable to wear — it's the only pair of headphones/headset I own that feels this way, and I'm not sure why. It seems to press on my head at weird angles, no matter how I adjust the headband, and I get headaches in just a few minutes of use.

      By comparison, something like the Bose QC35 is supremely comfortable (yes I know, sadly, that's not a gaming headset).

      Mic sound quality on the G933 seems fine on my one — neither fantastic nor terrible, but I haven't done any extensive testing to quantify this.

        i found much the same thing happening the first couple of times i used my A50s.
        maybe over time my head changed shape. Or i just got used to it. i know not.

    I had a razer kraken 7.1 and changed to the Steel Series Arctis 7 when they broke. One of the best things i ever bought. Would highly recommend. Comfy, sounds great. No issues with connectivity, has quite a good range. works with my PCs and PS4.
    A bit expensive as mine set me back about $209 from memory. but worth every cent imo.

    I use to have mad disconnects with my g930, but since moving the USB dongle to the keyboard USB port, instead of the PC it works fine.

    It has a sidetone level where it delivers microphone sounds to the speakers. I disliked this and set to 0, but disconnecting it or rebooting the PC the software would default it back to 10. I'm not sure if Logitech ever fixed or I'm just use to it now.

    Other than having to replace the ear pads sooner than I thought, I quite like them. I think I paid 130 which I think is a good price.

  •  

    I've owned a pair for over 2 years. I love them.

    They are a bit flimsy and the battery life isn't that great but the connectivity options are incredibly flexible.

    The USB Dongle is plug and play with my Windows PC, Switch and PS4.

    The same dongle has a 3.5mm jack that allows for mixing any source so long as the dongle has power. I plug it in to a USB port on my AV Receiver for power, and then use the headphone out for source. This is how I get wireless audio when on Xbox One. I have also tested powering the dongle with a power bank.

    The headset itself has a 3.5mm jack which works with the headset off. I sometimes use it this way plugged in to Xbox One or PS4 controllers.

    All three of those source options can be mixed at any one time. I have personally tested having the dongle plugged in to PC for Windows audio, then 3.5mm from phone to dongle, then 3.5mm Switch to headset. All playing at the same time. It's a terrible use case but it worked!

    Some people mention the sound quality and connectivity issues, but I have no problem with either.

  •  

    I've had this for a year and it's been working great.

    Accurately priced at 130 dont pay more than that.

  •  

    I have these for PS4. Gets hot and heavy for longer than 30mins playtime.

  •  

    Seems like the general consensus is they should have been priced around that from the start.
    So what is the best gaming headset out there regardless of price?
    My ones are falling apart and i want the best next.

  •  

    Awesome, I've been waiting for these to come on special.

  •  

    if u dont want the newest which is coming out very soon (g935) this is a good price

  •  

    7.1 surround sound and Noise Cancelling is only available on PC. Not supported on Xbox or PS4.

    •  

      Genuine question, are there any Xbox/PS4 specific headsets that provide this? It isn't a deal breaker for me as I'm looking for a headset that works well across PC and Xbox. Plugging into the Xbox controller is pretty much wireless as you can walk around with the controller pretty easy.

      This headset seems to have the best combination of various connections out of a lot of headsets I've looked at.

      •  

        Only the true wireless ones actually support it. They use a base station to simulate the surround sound. Turtle Beach make these.

        That said, on Xbox you can get the Dolby Atmos app which makes any headset become 7.1.2 surround. I have the Turtle Beach 510 with surround and the G933 with surround and I find that Atmos through the controller works better than the professional base stations.

        It costs about $10 but well worth it. Just get any headphones you like, get the Atmos add on, then go to your audio settings in Xbox and set it to "Dolby Atmos for headphones"

      •  

        I bought these a few years ago because it's kinda advertised as a multi-platform solution with 7.1 all over the box.
        But when I got home and read up on how to connect to xbox and Ps4 there's the mention of no 7.1 on console in the user manual.
        When connecting via the 3.5mm jack you don't power on the headset, just plug it in like any regular headset. That's why there's no Noise Cancelling.
        Also that means that they LEDs don't light up either, which is a shame I think.

        I enjoyed using these on PC so I kept them and bought Turtle Beaches for my xbox.
        Another thing to note is that the mic is really average.

  •  

    I have a pair of these for 2 years now, they work fine, the only issue I seem to notice is that the switch to turn them on is becoming a bit loose and hence not switching both ears on properly at times.

    Note that these have an auto cut-off if there is no sound coming through them for about a minute.

    I've left my LED's off from the beginning, battery seems fine too, very portable and has a bluetooth range of about 10m (havent tried direct line)
    Very comfortable to wear and a good upgrade over cheap headphones. Uses for gaming and music are great unless you are an audiophile.

  •  

    great product; great price

    huge cans

    Have a pair of these and a pair of G430s. Have just bought two more pairs on this deal. Hopefully neither are a dud pair!

  •  

    Went to JB’s yesterday and looks like they’ve done a price drop across all of the Logitech peripherals. 30% off headsets and 20% across keyboards and mice, while also dropping the “standard shelf price” for a lot of them too.

    Picked up the G933’s, only used them for a short time in Anthem, have a wired Razer Kraken V2’s and the G933’s sound much better, punchier sound and deeper bass.

    I’m going for a full wireless setup with a clean desk, so also picked up the G613 keyboard for $119.20 and the G703 mouse for $103. All seem to work nicely together and are all configurable through Logitech’s new G Hub, haven’t had any issues with configuration and connectivity so far, but early days.

    •  

      The G703 is excellent - you'll be very happy with it.

      •  

        Very snappy. Enjoyable so far.

        I haven't had a mech keyboard before, so the clicky-clacky noises are a bit to get used to. It's significantly louder than my cheaper K&M combo that were membrane. The G613 also has a loud springy echo after presses too.

        I was having issues with the combo receiver and the keyboard dropping out, was extremely frustrating when playing Anthem. Surrounded by mobs and unable to jump/launch into flight to get away.

        These peripherals are much more responsive which you'd expect for the price. There's definitely a noticeable different between the gaming and standard consumer lines.

  •  

    Brought these last sale, and had to return them. The MIC has a loud hiss when using it, and if you Google a lot of people get that issue. I wanted them to work, but seemed like a failure in design.
