Should you cut the cord with the Logitech G Pro X Wireless gaming headset?

Our Verdict

The Logitech G Pro X Wireless claims to deliver professional gaming quality. Yet when it fails to nail down the basics, and comes with a prohibitively high price tag, it is tough to recommend.

Against

Our experienced team dedicates many hours to every review, to really get to the heart of what matters most to you. Find out more about how we evaluate games and hardware.

The wireless revolution is upon us. Fresh from cutting the cords off its top gaming mice and gaming keyboards, Logitech has taken the shears to its gaming headset lineup, turning its Logitech G Pro X into a Logitech G Pro X Wireless. Very little else has changed in the transformation—well, except the price tag. At 200 (£190) this is not a cheap headset.

Connection: 2.4GHz wireless (with adapter) Driver: Hybrid mesh PRO-G 50mm Frequency response: 20. 20,000Hz Impedance: 35 ohm Microphone: 6mm detachable Surround sound: DTS Headphone:X 2.0 via software Weight: 370g Accessories: 2x replacement ear pads, USB Type-C to A charging cable, carry pouch MSRP: 200 (£190)

Most of what you’ve heard about the wired Pro X gaming headset stands true for the wireless variant—you can find my own thoughts on the wired headset in our Logitech G Pro X review. That means you’ll find the same svelte all-black exterior, manufactured out of leatherette and memory foam, on top of a steel headband construction. Simple, Smart, and free of any lighting to sap your battery life.

Wireless communication is handled by Logitech’s Lightspeed wireless capability, and provided through the use of a 2.4GHz wireless adapter. This USB Type-A dongle is considerably larger than those found with the Logitech G915 TKL or G Pro Wireless, which means there’s no clever storage located on the headphones themselves to store the adapter when on the move—as there is on both similarly-named mouse and keyboard.

Logitech’s been generous with the boxed extras, at least. Included is a black carry bag that you can at least store both components of the G Pro X Wireless in when you ship off.

You’ll also find a USB Type-A to Type-C charging cable in the box. Yes, Logitech has finally heard the good word of USB Type-C and made the switch, although only for headset charging at this time. Due to the USB Type-A connection, you’ll still need an adapter for your adapter if you wish to use the G Pro X Wireless on a thin and light laptop or mobile device—compounded also by the lack of Bluetooth connectivity.

Thankfully, Logitech has also seen fit to include a non-braided cable for charging, meaning you can both charge your headset and listen to music without audible scratching travelling through the cable and into your ear drums—an issue I had with the wired variant.

Disconnected from the mains, the battery is capable of 20 hours of juice. I had no issue reaching that mark through general on/off use over a few days, either.

That and wireless capabilities add 50 grams to the overall weight of the Pro X Wireless over the wired variant, for a total of 370 grams (13 oz). It’s considerable weight increase, in theory. Yet without both headsets in hand I can’t say I noticed a great deal of extra weight during actual wear, and the headset’s snug fit keeps the weight away from any one particular pain point.

Two 50mm neodymium drivers drive the G Pro X Wireless. These are the same Hybrid mesh Pro-G drivers found in the wired set, and so my sentiment remains the same. That is to say that the twin Pro-G drivers are nothing special. I prefer the close-to-flat EQ of something akin to the Pro-G drivers, yet these particular drivers muddle their way through both games and music without any clear definition throughout the range.

The mic is also a little disappointing. An overbearing high-end means you miss out on bass and middle frequencies, which causes a tonally sharp profile. The integrated Blue Vo!ce functionality offers some respite, in the form of a custom EQ, although most of the presets only serve to compound the sharp tone and response.

As I’ve said before, it’s a clear mic for your teammates—the sharp response cuts through the din of most shooters, etc. However, it is a little off the pace of other gaming headsets, such as the Steelseries Arctis lineup or HyperX Cloud Alpha, and that just won’t do for a headset that touts microphone expertise from the best at Blue.

Many of my misgivings with the Logitech G Pro X Wireless gaming headset boil down to my understanding of what the company’s Pro Series is supposed to be: “Designed with and for the world’s leading esports professionals”, according to the Logitech website. Yet it only feels like a handful of Pro Series products fit the bill.

The Logitech G Pro X Wireless doesn’t offer anything that the competition doesn’t also offer, albeit often in a far less high-minded headset, and it’s frustrating to see the basics—functionality that would make or break any good gaming headset—tipped to be the exclusive demand of professional gamers.

And despite its starry-eyed branding, the Logitech G Pro X Wireless is actually quite mundane: the drivers are fine, mic quality is okay, and there’s little to differentiate it from other gaming headsets. But hey, it’s got one mark of a professional headset about it: a 200 price tag.

That’s a 70 increase over the wired variant, which was already a touch overpriced in my opinion and really only bolstered by the inclusion of a USB to 3.5mm DAC—the likes of which isn’t included or required with the wireless pair.

Logitech’s back to basics approach with the G Pro X Wireless, once paired with a high price tag, sets it up for a fall, and it simply cannot deliver what it needs to in order to justify the down payment.

Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED Gaming Headset Headphones Review

logitech, wireless, gaming, headset, review

The Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED are the wireless version of the Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset. These gaming-oriented over-ears are compatible with Logitech’s G HUB companion software, which lets you adjust the sound profile, change the microphone settings, and access virtual surround sound mode. Their detachable boom microphone makes your voice sound clear and natural, even in noisy environments. They can be used wirelessly with PC and PlayStation 4, but they aren’t compatible with Xbox One. Unfortunately, the PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED aren’t very versatile, as they have a poor noise isolation performance and a bulky design. That said, they’re a solid choice for gaming from home.

Our Verdict

The Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED are decent for neutral sound. Their default sound profile is fairly neutral with a bit of an overemphasized high-mid and low-treble, but they’re still suitable for a wide variety of music genres. However, depending on their fit, positioning, and placement on your head, you may experience inconsistent bass and treble delivery. On the upside, you can adjust their sound profile to your liking using the companion software’s graphic EQ and presets.

The Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED are sub-par for commute and travel. They achieve no isolation in the bass range, so they can’t block out bass-heavy sounds like bus or plane engines. They don’t block out voices or high-pitched sounds, either. While they’re very comfortable, they have a bulky design and aren’t very portable. On the upside, their over 23-hour continuous battery life can last through long plane rides.

The Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED are mediocre for sports and fitness. While they’re very comfortable, these bulky over-ears aren’t very portable, so they may not fit easily into a small bag. They’re stable enough for gaming, but they move around on your head after high-intensity movements, so they aren’t ideal to use during your workout. As they can only be used with their USB dongle, you won’t be able to stream music from your phone unless you use an adapter.

The Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED are fair for office use. They have a poor noise isolation performance, so you may hear background noise like office chatter. On the upside, these comfortable headphones have over 23 hours of continuous battery life, which should be more than enough to get you through your workday and your commute. They also don’t leak a lot of noise, so you can enjoy your favorite tunes without bothering your coworkers.

The Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED are very good for wireless gaming. Using proprietary wireless, they can connect with your PC or your PlayStation 4 without a lot of latency. They’re well-padded and have a comfortable over-ear fit, and a detachable boom mic to help you stay connected to your teammates. Their default sound profile is neutral, and there’s a little extra punch in the bass range that adds extra boom to action-packed scenes without overwhelming the mix. Unfortunately, these headphones aren’t compatible with Xbox One.

The Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED can’t play audio with a wired connection, so they aren’t suitable for wired gaming.

The Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED are good for phone calls. They come with a detachable boom microphone, and with its default settings, it makes your voice sound clear, natural, and full-bodied, even if you’re calling from a noisy setting. You can even adjust the microphone settings using the BLUE VO!CE technology in their G HUB companion software, though we don’t test for this. Unfortunately, they have a poor noise isolation performance, so you may be distracted by background noise during your calls.

Test Results

The Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED have a very similar design to the Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset. They both have a metal frame with thick padding and big, padded ear cups with a metal silver accent on the outside. Their boom microphone is detachable, which is convenient if you want a more casual look. However, they only come in black.

The Logitech PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED are very comfortable gaming headphones. Unlike the Sony INZONE H9 Wireless, they come with two different sets of memory foam pads for the ear cups, so you can choose between the set covered by cloth and the set covered by leatherette. The cups are large and deep, so they should fit most ear sizes and shapes. They have a decent weight, so they may feel a bit fatiguing after a long gaming session. On the upside, the wide and comfortable headband helps distribute their weight well.

The Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED have a simple, easy-to-use control scheme. There’s an on/off switch, an infinite volume wheel, and a mic mute button. There’s a beep when you mute and unmute the mic, and when you reach max volume. However, the infinite volume wheel doesn’t have a notch at min or max volume, and it’s easy to accidentally change the volume. Their controls are somewhat limited for gaming, but they still have the basics.

Like most gaming headphones, the Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED aren’t very portable. They’re fairly large and bulky, so they may not be ideal to bring on-the-go. That said, they’re surprisingly compact when set to their smallest configuration.

The Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED come with a fabric pouch. It feels like it’s made of neoprene, so it’s thick and has a shock-absorbing property, which does a decent job protecting the headphones against light scratches. However, the pouch feels a bit cheap, it doesn’t completely close with the strings, and it won’t protect the headphones from falls or water exposure.

Update 11/04/2021: There have been several user reports that the hinges on their units have broken over time. Some users have reported breakage while under warranty, and some users have experienced this once they were out of warranty. At the moment, we’re unable to test for long-term use in our test bench, and your feedback helps us to provide more information. As a result, we have decided to lower the ‘Build Quality’ score from ‘8.5’ to ‘7.5’ to reflect this widespread issue. If you have experienced this issue and the headphones are outside the manufacturer’s warranty, some users have suggested that super glue works well. One of our colleagues also experienced a similar issue with their own headset within the first year of owning it and their solution was to use zip ties to hold the hinge in place. We have updated our review to reflect these changes.

The Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED have a good build quality. They have aluminum forks and a steel headband, which feels solid and durable. The headband and the memory foam pads are covered in leatherette, and there’s a second pair of cloth memory foam pads for the ear cups. The USB power cable feels thick. The mic also feels solid, and it can be detached for a casual look.

The Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED are fairly stable headphones. They should stay on your head while you’re gaming, but more high-intensity movements can make them move around on your head, so they aren’t ideal for working out. On the upside, these wireless headphones don’t have a cable that could get snagged on nearby objects, which is nice. For a more stable pair of gaming headphones, check out the Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Gen 2 Wireless.

reviews for Logitech G PRO X Wireless LIGHTSPEED Gaming Headset – DTS V2 Surround Sound 7.1

First day use, I can already say that this is the best headset I used so far, quality and sound wise. Honestly not on the cheap side but literally worth it, didn’t regret paying that much for it. Just not a big fan of the 7.1 DTS, but overall it’s one of the best headsets out in the market.

Logitech G PRO X Wireless Review – The Gaming Headset To Beat!

I can’t believe it… They finally did it! Logitech has finally put a USB Type-C connection on one of their gaming products. Hopefully that expands to the rest of their lineup. The Logitech G Pro X Wireless is exactly what you would expect for the G Pro X Wireless to be. The Pro line is really all about the core functionality of being a solid gaming headset in eSports and for media consumption. I feel like Logitech really pioneered the whole idea behind wireless gaming peripherals being just as good as their wired counterparts, by removing the whole stigma around latency, around battery life, and around reliability in the heat of the moment.

The G Pro X Wireless is a really good contender on the market, but basically all my complaints of the wired version of the G Pro X carry over to the wireless version. In this review we will see exactly what is different, talk about the sound quality, the microphone quality, and its relation to other wireless gaming headsets that are still worth it in 2020.

Let’s begin with some bad news, the price of this new wireless version is 199 USD, which is a 70 premium over the G Pro X wired. It is also double the price of the standard G Pro, which is exactly the same headset, but without the Blue VO!CE functionality. By the way, I don’t want to spoil anything, but Blue VO!CE is just as bad on this model as it was on the wired version.

As for accessories, all the basics are covered. We have the USB Type-C cable for charging, a replacement set of velour ear pads, a carry pouch, and the USB dongle that you can store inside the ear cup if you just rotate it, it will not fall out. In terms of design, nothing has changed. The headset being wireless has increased the weight slightly versus the original G Pro X, and the ear cup thickness has also increased. The actual cushions haven’t gotten thicker, but the ear cup itself, because that is where you can house the additional components and the battery. It is one of the heaviest wireless pairs I have my collection, but you don’t really feel that, they kind of disappear on your head after a while. The leather headband is fantastic, it feels really premium, and I do like the Pro text on it and the stitching on the sides.

Design Build Quality

The exposed coiled cable on top of each year cup looks fantastic, and in my experience with the G Pro X – which is what I’ve been using for the last 6 to 8 months as my primary gaming headset – I have never noticed this to be an issue and it shouldn’t be an issue here either. Overall, the build quality feels okay, but the swivel on my wireless version is slightly looser than what I have on my wired version. My only nitpick about the design is the chrome accented centerpieces on the ear cups, since they pick up all types of material and gunk that accumulates in the grooves. Also, this matte black material is super easy to scratch. The size extensions are necessary here, and I wish that we had a little bit more just because I’m starting to appreciate wireless gaming audio more and more now that I have a virtual reality headset.

Comfort

Here is my Oculus Rift S VR Headset, I will be doing this comfort test for all wireless gaming headsets in the future. The G Pro X Wireless handles this situation pretty well, the headset is very comfortable, and the clamping force is not too tight. I just wish the ear cushions was slightly thicker so that it would create a better seal, because at the moment there is a bit of spacing. comfort-wise – outside of VR – I find these fantastic, even with glasses, there is no excessive clamping force. I have worn this headset for 6 hour stretches and when taking them off there is no ringing ears and no pressure accumulation anywhere. The only two things to keep in mind is that there isn’t much padding on the interior, so if your ears are larger and they make contact with that internal wall it might not be so comfortable. Lastly, there is indeed heat accumulation because of the leather ear pads. This is why I appreciate the included velour pads, which are fantastic for the heat of the summer, which is now.

Controls Indicators

Given that this as a wireless pair all of the controls are located on the left side, so we have our power switch with the red and blue indicators, a very smooth volume wheel, above that is a mic mute, then there is the USB Type-C below the power button and an LED indicator. The microphone is removable, but unfortunately there is no easy way to tell which way the microphone capsule should face your mouth. I had to remove the memory foam in order to realize which way was the correct way. I am not a fan of the volume wheel, just like I was not a fan of it on the G915 keyboards for three reasons. First, there is a bit of resistance on it, but no tactility whatsoever. Second, there is always a bit of a delay between when you adjust the volume on the headset versus when you see the volume bar in Windows. And lastly, it is difficult to have precise volume adjustment because of the other two points, you always end up lowering or adding more volume than intended.

Battery Life

Battery life is rated at 20 hours, but I think is conservative because in 6 hours I dropped 20%. If you do the math I should have about 30 hours of runtime. The one annoying thing about this wireless pair and really all wireless gaming headsets is that if you shut down the system and you power it back on, you have to manually turn the headset off and on again for it to be recognized by the dongle. I would recommend having dongle in your sight, because if the green LED is flashing it means this thing is disconnected, and that the green is solid it means the headset is connected.

Sound Quality

Now let’s talk about sound quality, and I have to say I have always enjoyed Logitech wireless audio. I’m pleased to report that this headset is no exception. To me they sound almost identical versus the wired G Pro X, which has natural clean balanced sound, and that carries over to the G Pro X Wireless. They sound so much fuller and cleaner versus the Corsair HS70, which kind sounds hollow. They have much better mid-range definition and overall resolution versus the HyperX Cloud Flight, but I still feel like the GSP 370 from Sennheiser is a better sounding pair because its low-end is deeper and richer. If you try to add some bass in the equalizer settings in the G HUB suite, it doesn’t really work here, it kind of falls apart. I prefer the default neutral state, because otherwise it sounds muddy when any bass is added. The high notes are beautiful though, really smooth and clean, there is no hiss in the background, even when the headset is that zero volume. I really feel like they have tuned the drivers and the wireless connection to sound as close as possible to the wired version, and that is a major positive.

This headset has excellent passive noise isolation because of ear cushions really muting out everything that is in your environment. And that really helps to pinpoint details in your gaming environment with audio cues and directional awareness. You don’t need surround sound, you don’t need Virtual 7.1 and all that stuff, the basic stereo imaging is fantastic by default. I really don’t know what Logitech has done here in terms of surround sound, which was fantastic on the G933 and the 900 series of headsets, but here it is absolutely not worth it. Not only does it create a really bad soundstage environment, but the bass is incredibly muddy so you lose out a ton of detail on the low-end. There is absolutely no advantage in terms of directional awareness when stereo mode is already so good. Their new cinematic surround sound sounds horrible to my years. It really pains me to say that, honestly, because I loved it on the 900 series of headsets, but I don’t know what happened.

If I was to place this headset in terms of audio quality versus everything else that I have listened to, this would be a close second right behind the GSP 370. It is much better than the HyperX Cloud Flight, much better than the Corsair Virtuoso, and also much better than the Corsair HS70. Having said that, it is also a lot more expensive. I think the expensive part really comes not from the wireless nature, but from the Blue VO!CE tax as I call it. A tax that is simply not needed on this headset because I feel like the microphone capsule itself is just not capable of receiving so many effects like noise gate and compression. By default it doesn’t sound very good, so applying a bunch of effects on top of that makes it sound worse.

Microphone Quality

The G Pro X Wireless microphone without Blue VO!CE enabled is not clear, it’s highly compressed, it doesn’t sound natural, and none of those are characteristics that we would usually attribute to Blue. Regrettably, enabling Blue VO!CE doesn’t help since applying effects doesn’t fix a poor microphone. One of my favorite microphones is actually the Blue Ember, which has beautiful warm tones. Adding Blue VO!CE to this package is an embarrassment really, because when it is enabled Blue VO!CE really does sound worse. There are a few interesting presets like Broadcaster 1 preset, but while it does add little bit more bass, more compression, and more noise gate so I am louder, but the microphone is still quite poor. There are also bad presets like G2 kennyS, which don’t sound ‘pro’ or broadcast quality at all. There is also fun presets like the FM Station one, which is what I would use to chat with my gaming buddies. Nevertheless, I do appreciate that we have a lot of flexibility in the software. I like the idea behind Blue VO!CE and being able to tweak each single EQ setting and come up with your own preset, but it doesn’t fix a microphone that is already poor.

Just for reference, the wired G Pro X headset microphone with Blue VO!CE disabled does sound better than the wireless one, which is understandable. One tip is that you have to lower the gain to around 50%, especially for my voice because otherwise there is clipping. It actually does sound much better when enabled Blue VO!CE is enabled as well, as long as your gain is controlled. If your gain is too high it will sound terrible, and if your gain is slightly lower it will definitely compensate by adding more bass and it will remove a lot of the distortion that might happen when the microphone is too sensitive. I usually have the Broadcaster 1 preset enabled, and as long as my sensitivity is under control it does improve the overall vocal quality, adding more bass, more fullness, and more compression to the voice. The wired microphone without and with Blue VO!CE does sound better than the wireless.

Now to be fair, I feel like all wireless headsets have subpar microphone quality. The GSP 370 by Sennheiser is no exception, but there is a lot more to be desired in terms of depth, resolution of your voice, and clarity too. However, it still just feels so unnatural and compressed. And just to give you another reference point, this is the HyperX Cloud Flight, another wireless headset, but with much worse microphone quality versus the G Pro X Wireless or the GSP 370.

Conclusion

And so to conclude, I feel like the G Pro X Wireless is a welcome addition to the market, despite the high price and despite the poor microphone. The audio quality coming into your ears is really good, easily competing with the GSP 370, and that is a major positive. I have no issues trusting this headset and its audio performance for competitiveness in CS:GO or Escape from Tarkov, and really enjoying anything in my gaming library because the sound is that good.

It really does suck that the surround sound experience is so much worse on the G Pro X Wireless and the G Pro X Wired versus something like G935. However, thankfully, the stereo performance is excellent. I just wish that the quality across all features was more balanced in terms of having a good microphone, having good surround sound, but at least headset has battery life, comfort, and sound quality going for it. Everything else is secondary, but that might be okay for some people. That is my review of the Logitech G Pro X Wireless, hope you enjoyed it.
