Logitech G430 Surround Sound Gaming Headset Review

Looking for a new gaming headset with great audio capabilities and a mic for others to hear you talk with? The “Logitech G430 Surround Sound Gaming Headset” is a great option for gamers, and non-gamers alike that can appreciate good headsets. Take a look at the features and see for yourself why this could be the best gaming headset for you to use next.


Logitech G430 Surround Sound Gaming Headset Features
On-Cable Controls Keep the mute switch and volume dial close at hand for quick, precise audio adjustments. All attached to an extra long, x-meter cable.

Dolby Headphone 7.1 Surround SoundYou can hear up to seven discrete channels of audio data plus the low-frequency effects (LFE) channel, known as 7.1 surround sound. Dolby Headphone technology perceptually positions each channel in the correct location to reproduce multi-channel content the way developers intended.

Lay-Flat EarpiecesWe know even twin gamers are one-of-a-kind. For a personalized fit, the earpieces swivel up to 90 degrees. And because they can turn to lay flat, they’re less prone to breakage from everyday wear and tear.

Sports Performance Cloth Ear Cups - Marathon gaming sessions mean heat and sweat. We covered the G430 ear cups with carefully selected sports performance cloth for a comfortable, soft touch even after hours of use. And they slip off easily for washing to keep the headset in top shape.

Lightweight DesignThe G430 earpieces have been designed to be slimmer and lighter, without skimping on audio quality. A lighter, balanced assembly means you stay focused on the game. You might even forget you’re wearing a headset.

Folding, Noise-Cancelling Mic - When you want to be heard, you will be—loudly and clearly. The noise-cancelling mic can be adjusted to pick up your voice alone. Don’t feel like talking? Easily fold it up and out of the way.

Full-Speed, All-Digital USB In-game sound isn’t an effect. It’s a critical component of game play. Our USB headphones surround you with aural information. The sound is crisp and clear, and the jack on your sound card stays open for desktop speakers.Logitech G430 Surround Sound Gaming Headset


My Thoughts
This headset is designed with the gamer in mind. It has features designed extensively for long hours of gaming, and of course, use of both the earpieces and the mic. It is designed to last and hold up for serious gamers, and anyone who wants to use this stylish headset.

Headsets have a love/hate relationship with me. I really love to use them, but often they make me uncomfortable. My head is sensitive, and I can’t withstand lots of pressure on it or anything too heavy. The first few days that I wore this headset, it was a little uncomfortable. However, after wearing them for about 1-3 hours each day, after about a week, I was able to wear them without any issues. I only heard clear audio and was able to talk in TeamSpeak clearly.

The audio quality of the surround sound earpieces is really amazing. It is very high quality and I love just listening to music with them. I use the headset when gaming too though, and it works flawlessly for that as well. I don’t really see the need for surround sound with things like TeamSpeak, but it of course works well in there as well, and some of the voices from people sound clearer with this too.

The mic works well and I’ve had no complaints of coming in too soft or too loud on anybody’s systems, so it gets an A+ from me on that. I also like how I can mute the mic or adjust the volume right on the headset’s cable.

One of my favorite features I haven’t actually tried out yet, but the fact that the ear cups can come off to be washed is amazing. I’m a Nursing student that has taken Microbiology, so trust me – this is something all headsets need!

Overall, this is a high quality headset with superior performance at a very reasonable price. If you want a new headset, this is one that you should seriously look into. I highly recommend it.
