If the G930 is a little out of your price range you can get a great deal by getting the Logitech G35 which is number 4 on our list of the best gaming headsets. The G35 has a lot of the same options as the G930 with 7.1 surround sound (powered by Dolby technology) with the main difference being that the G930 is a wireless headset while the G35 has a braided 10 foot cord.
If you are always struggling to find a form fitting headset the G35 comes with 3 swappable pads for small, medium, and large sized heads. One of the main complaints that we’ve seen in customer reviews about headsets is that most of them don’t come naturally in different sizes. With the swappable pads and the easy fit tabs on the side you’ll be able to get just the right fit.
Cheap headphones have cheap cords that easily get tangled and make it difficult to use a corded headset. The G930 has a quality 10 foot braided cable that avoids tangles and will last you a long time.
There are two ways to mute the G35, either move the boom microphone out of your way or press the button on its side.
3 easy to reach programmable buttons on the side allow you to customize this headset to your liking.
What Customers on Amazon are saying about the G35 gaming headset:
“Sound Quality: I am impressed with the surround sound where normally I find surround sound unbearably processed and artificial, Logitech’s software does a good job. While in stereo mode it’s awful, but that isn’t what these headphones are for… Artifical bass enhancement is one of the things I hate about most processed sound, and I was delighted to find that none was present. Logitech is to be commended for making that choice in their design because most people equate sloppy boomy bass with high quality (think car stereo woofer).”
What Customers on NewEgg are saying about the G930:
“Pros: Surround sound is very good for playing games. Most comfortable headphones I have ever used. I can wear them for 8 hours and still be comfortable. Includes three head cusions so you can get the best fit. The microphone works well without fiddling with the software for 20 minutes. The build quality is good even though it’s 90% plastic/rubber. The USB cord has a woven insulator around it, so it should be fairly tough. The cord is about 10′ long.
Cons: The software isn’t perfect. You have to unplug the headset to go back to using speakers or another sound device. Also if you plug in the G35 while a program is running, you usually have to restart the program to make the sound work on the headset. They’re not the greatest headphones for music. I like having a subwoofer for music, and the G35s don’t have the same kick that a real sub does.”
Where to Buy:
Most confirmed owners of the G35 give it 4 stars and we agree with them. The sound quality lacks nothing and with a headset as easy to fit as this one it’s sure to be on our top ten list for a long time. The cord does feel a little restrictive for so around $20 we’d simply rather go with the G930; however, if you’d prefer a USB headset, then the G35 should be one of your first options.
