Best Logitech Gaming Headphones under $100
Logitech G633 Artemis Spectrum ( Best 7.1 Surround Gaming Headset)
If I am to name a company that has been in the peripheral market for as long as I can remember, I will not be able to think of anyone other than Logitech, at least as far as this list is concerned. Logitech has been making peripherals way before this need for gaming peripherals came into the mix, so they are already aware of how to make high-quality products, even if they are required to make them look outlandish with RGB lighting.
Say hello to the Logitech G633 Artemis Spectrum RGB, Logitech’s top-end gaming headset that aims to deliver excellent gaming performance for a good price. The headset is available in both wired and wireless versions with the latter being on the expensive side. Right from the get-go, it is easy to tell that Logitech designed this for the gamers; the design is aggressive, and for some reason, reminds me of the aliens in the original Crysis.
Luckily, the bulky design does not have its influence trickle down onto the comfort level as the headset happens to be among the most comfortable ones you can buy for your money. There is ample cushioning available to the user, allowing for a great gaming experience even if you are pulling all-nighters.
My biggest gripe with gaming headsets is how they do not sound as good with tasks other than gaming; thankfully, Logitech takes care of that by ensuring a great sound quality in games, movies, and music. On top of that, despite having artificial 7.1 surround sound, it handles everything really, really nicely as well.
Moving on to the Logitech Gaming Software, I am pleased that despite being in the business for a long time; the software suite that follows is robust, simple, and easy to use. Thankfully, it does not convolute itself, and certainly does not confuse the user with all the options that are available either. All the controls that you need are available; you can customize sound profiles, lighting, or profiles in general with just a click of a button.
Lastly, the Logitech G633 works well with PC, consoles, and mobile phones thanks to the plethora of connectivity options available to you.
The only real gripe I have with the G633 is that if you are someone who games on a laptop and prefers to travel with your gaming gear, then the Logitech G633 Artemis Spectrum RGB might not be the top choice as the headphone’s bulky design makes it difficult to carry it around with ease.
All in all, the Logitech G633 Artemis Spectrum RGB is among the best you can buy at the moment, especially if it is functionality you are looking for, because it does provide an impeccable listening, and overall gaming experience that many other headsets fall short of.
- Excellent sound quality in games, movies, and music.
- Great build quality.
- Comfort level is of the highest grade.
- Logitech Gaming Software is a joy to use.
- Can be used with almost all the devices.
- The headset is a bit difficult to carry around.
Logitech G430 7.1 Surround Gaming Headset
The one thing that you will see among the companies when you are out in the market looking for a gaming headset is that they create something for everyone. You do not necessarily need to have a lot of money to be able to buy a good gaming headset, because you can easily score one in a lesser price. The same is the case with Logitech, because the company is known for delivering some budget level headsets as well; the headsets definitely sound great, and are worth buying.
Today, I am looking at the Logitech G430 – a budget-oriented headset that offers more simplicity than you would find in some of the other headsets in the market. But can it hold its own against the tough competition, especially in the sub $100 price range. Thankfully, the Logitech G430 has a lot to offer when it comes to performance.
Right out of the box, you can tell where the company has cut corners; you no longer get the RGB lighting. Instead, the headset dons a blue and black color scheme that goes well with the Logitech’s logo. I absolutely love the design on the G430 – it is practical and easy to understand. Sure, it still looks a bit aggressive, but it does not go away from the functionality that the headset provides, as a matter of fact, the G430 is one of the most functional headsets I have had the chance to review.
The comfort level is amazing; I can just wear this headset for hours without feeling the need to take them off; truly a wonderful experience. In addition to that, that construction is lightweight too, so it just adds up to the whole experience.
As far as the actual performance is concerned, this is where things get a bit interesting; I am not saying that the G430 is a bad headset; the performance in games is really good. However, as soon as you move over to the music side of things, everything just becomes mediocre. Needless to say, if you want to enjoy your high-quality music files, then the Logitech G430 might not be the perfect choice for you. While we are on the topic of the sound quality, the Logitech G430 uses 7.1 surround sound, but sadly, it is just average at best; it simply fails to deliver.
Last but not the least, the Logitech G430 does have software support, but only the bare minimum, which can hinder the overall usability experience by a greater degree for some users.
All in all, the Logitech G430 is a headset that tries very hard to fit in, and almost does too. It is largely marred by the shortcomings, that end up making this otherwise wonderful headset, a less than ideal choice for gamers looking for a good headset.
- The design is practical with no weird angles.
- The comfort level is really nice.
- The headset is lightweight.
- The sound quality is decent for the price.
- The software features are limited at best.
- The sound surround is not good.
- Music sounds average.
