Logitech G930 Wireless Gaming Headset
2.4 GHz wireless connectivity – Designed for a lag-free, interference-resistant connection with a range up to 40 feet – so nothing stands between you and victory.

7.1 surround sound – Advanced Dolby technology delivers a detailed sound field that lets you hear your enemies before they see you.

Three programmable G-keys – You’ve got one-touch command over music, voice morphing, chat clients and more.

Adjustable, memory foam-lined headband – Creates a personalized fit to fend off fatigue.

Plush, noise-isolating ear pads – Ease pressure points and seal out unwanted noise.

Laser-tuned drivers – We analyze each acoustic element – magnet, coil and diaphragm – to optimize the drivers and pinpoint unwanted distortion, so you hear only rich, clear audio.

Noise-cancelling mic with auto-mute – The microphone reduces annoying background noise for clear, intelligible voice commands, and automatically mutes when you rotate it up and out of the way.

Microphone mute light – The microphone tip glows red when muted.

On-ear audio controls – Adjust volume and microphone mute on the fly – don’t fumble for controls in the heat of battle.

Painless recharging – Recharge using the universal micro-USB cable – even while you’re still playing. When charging is complete, wrap up the cable inside the charging base.

Batteries built for battle – With up to 10 hours of battery life, this headset can get you through the most epic gaming sessions.

Adjustable audio settings – Tweak surround sound settings and equalizer levels using the included software.

Real-time voice morphing – You can select from six voices – troll, mutant, alien, giant, cyborg, and space squirrel.

Plug and play setup – Don’t worry about unplugging or rearranging your speakers. Just plug the wireless adapter into the charging base or a USB port and you’re ready to play.” – Logitech G930 Wireless Gaming Headset

My Thoughts
When playing MMOs, people often use Ventrilo or TeamSpeak to communicate vocally with their teammates. Many gamers chose to use a headset and mic combo to do this with. It gives the gamer privacy if others live with them, and the mic helps to make their voice come through better for others.

As a MMO gamer, I use Ventrilo, and I’ve gone through a few headsets that never lasted very long. I have also tried using a separate headset and the internal mic on my laptop, and also a separate microphone. This worked for a while, but it got rather annoying for using for extended periods of time.

After using the Logitech G930 Wireless Gaming Headset for about a month so far, I am pleasantly happy with it, and have had absolutely no problems with it. It was extremely easy to setup and use. If you want to listen to something without the headphones, all you do is unplug it from the USB slot. It really couldn’t be any easier.

It is a comfortable headset to use when it is wireless or plugged in to charge the battery. The cords coil up when not charging, so they don’t get in the way and make my desk look messy. The sound is fantastic, and the mic works flawlessly, too. I have fun using the space squirrel voice morphing on my friends, and it also makes me laugh when hearing it for myself.

Overall, I really like this gaming headset. It is comfortable, has amazing sound quality, and is quite durable. If you are looking for a headset for gaming, this is the top of the line quality you’re looking for. I highly recommend it.
