For a long time, I was using headsets for gaming that had long wires for playing across the room. I would constantly trip over the wire, my dog would trip over the wire, the wire would get tangled, or my office chair would snag the wire, and I was just tired of it. I made a decision that I had to have a wireless headset. I started looking around for one that was reasonably priced but had great sound quality and a long battery life. My friend recommended me Logitech’s G930 headset. I was sold when I saw the price and ordered it that night.
Logitech’s G930 is priced at about $90 (it was $120 when I bought mine). When it came in the mail, I rushed to open it. The packaging was pretty simple, a box, some plastic holding the headset in place, the headset, the wireless receiver, the charging cable, a CD, and some manuals. All of it was really simple and the packaging felt really safe and I didn’t feel like it would be easily damaged while being shipped. I installed the software that was included in the packaging, and it was pretty simple. Just unplug the headset, install the software, and plug it back in, not much to it at all. Next, I wanted to test the headsets features out. It has a wheel on the left ear cup to change the volume, a switch on the edge of the left ear cup to turn the 7.1 surround sound on or off, and three programmable G keys (Can be programmed with voice changers that are included, open windows media player, or a few other options).
I like how the charging wire and the wireless receiver could be attached together (the cord is a spool with a USB port in the top to keep everything organized). The battery life was actually really long, even when using the 7.1 surround sound, it would last anywhere from 9-10 hours. I do enjoy the surround sound, and it works really good. When I’m in game, I can hear someone sneaking up behind me without any extra effort, giving me a great advantage. When the battery dies, you can charge the headset while still playing, and it only takes a few hours to charge. The software tells you when the headset is about to run out of battery, how much time is left on the battery, and how long it will take to charge.
I’ve had the headset for over a year now, and everything still works great. The only thing that I would have to complain about is the new software. They didn’t update it for windows 8 for a long time and that was kind of upsetting to me. Sometimes when I play simple games such as Minecraft, if I listen to music at the same time, the Minecraft audio will be really scratchy and skip a bit. Other than that, there is no real issue. I use a few of Logitech’s products, and it’s nice that they all work together in the one software. After over a year of use, the battery life still lasts about 7-9 hours, but I go AFK (Away From Keyboard) pretty often, and don’t remember to turn them off. That’s not a big deal because after 15 minutes of inactivity, the headset will turn itself off. This headset was a great deal, and I can’t find one that is any better for a decent price. There are some that could compete, but they’re over $300 and now worth it in my opinion. A tip about this headset is if you want a headset holder, take some 3M double stick tape, put two or three strips on the bottom of the spool, and stick it to something (I stuck mine to my computer case) and you can hang the headset on the spool (don’t hang it from the leather part, there is a lip behind it that will work to hold it in place). This is a GREAT headset and I’d recommend it to anyone that is a gamer. It’s mainly for PC gaming, but can be used on consoles with some extra parts. This product is a 10 out of 10!
