As a new Logitech turnOn member we got to try out the Logitech G330 Gaming Headset. Gamers out there are probably all aware that a couple of the major advantages when gaming comes with sound! Firstly you need great sound quality that not only helps immerse you deeper into the game but also having the advantage of hearing people walking around a corner or trying to creep up on you is a must for any wannabe pro. Along with great sound is tactics. The last thing you want is to be gaming with teammates and be unable to call out an incoming attack or where the enemy is taking the flag. For this you need a clear and crisp microphone. So will the Logitech G330 Gaming Headset meet these requirements? Let’s find out…
As always we filmed a full unboxing of the headset which you can view below. The good news is the package was nice and easy to get into!
The sound of the headset was really good but it does lack a little on bass. This is compensated however by adjusting a few settings within the OS and the trebles sound very rich and clear. The headset isn’t a closed ear design which means some sound an leak but overall this doesn’t effect the performance of the sound. The volume is great too and can go really loud without loosing too much quality of sound, however your unlikely to ever need the sound to be this loud.
Wow. This is one word to describe the microphone on the Logitech G330. The microphone is the best of all the headsets we have tested. It is crisp and clear and the noise cancelling works pretty well. The mic sits directly in-line with your mouth but is also flexible in order to place it in the best possible place, to achieve the best quality. Compared to other headsets that add a echoing effect and have poor noise cancelling this was a dream to use. Check out the review video below for a mic quality test.
The first thing we noticed was how light the headset was. This is great as the headset is of behind the head design and therefore all the weight is placed directly on your ears. At first this was a little worrying however after using the headset for hours and hours at a time it was great to not be bothered by an aching head and hot ears. The cable is 2.4m long and is a little thin which is a shame, some might love this as it means less weight hanging off your ears and is probably why the cable was designed like this. Overall the headset is lightweight but appears strong enough to withstand the usual knocks when gaming.
An extra feature with this headset over many others is the USB adapter. This allows you to plug the standard 3.5mm jacks into the adapter and effectively use the USB adapter as a soundcard. For those with modern powerful soundcards you would probably be better off using sticking with that and the 3.5mm jacks but if your using onboard sound or have no soundcard then this feature is great and for the price of the headset is a brilliant addition.
The headset also features an in-line remote control allowing you to directly adjust the volume and mute the mic ideal when mum comes in asking how school was in the middle of a gaming match! Arhh how annoying! With the clip to the rear you can attach this tyo your shirt easily too, which saves trying to find it in the dark.
As usual we filmed a full review too for those of you who prefer the more interactive reviews check out the video below:
Overall the Logitech G330 Gaming Headset is a great addition to any gamers setup. The headset has obviously been designed with gamers at mind with it’s open ear design for greater comfort, excellent microphone and plug and play setup. We therefore give the Logitech G330 Headset a fantastic score of 4.5 clouds only loosing points on a little lack of base.
