Great trying. Great sounding. Cheap. Usually you possibly can solely decide two of the three—and but Logitech’s right here to show that previous adage mistaken with its new G Pro X gaming headset. Ostensibly geared towards esports fanatics (therefore the “Pro” moniker), the G Pro X is an ideal resolution for the plenty as nicely, or at the very least the plenty who can nonetheless abdomen a wired headset.

Let’s get proper to it.

Note: This assessment is a part of our roundup of best gaming headsets. Go there for particulars on competing merchandise and the way we examined them.

Round and spherical

The G Pro X could also be Logitech’s best-looking headset but. That’s fairly a feat, given how a lot I cherished the tender curves and piano black of the G533.  Hot rattling, although—retro-futurist is the time period I maintain reaching for, as if Logitech one way or the other constructed a gaming headset for the 1940s, or at the very least lifted the aesthetic from broadcast gear of the period.

I think Logitech’s acquisition of Blue Microphones has one thing to do with it. I can’t say for sure, however the G Pro X has decidedly extra in frequent with Blue’s throwback Lola and Mix-Fi traces than something Logitech’s performed earlier than. On the opposite hand, Logitech solely acquired Blue final summer season, in order that’d be a decent turnaround for the G Pro X—so possibly Logitech devised this new look independently. But I’ve my suspicions.

It doesn’t actually matter. Point is, the G Pro X appears to be like incredible. It’s very fundamental, flat-black with a leatherette headband, metallic forks, and pill-shaped earcups. The solely adornment is a metallic disc on every ear, emblazoned with the Logitech G brand.

Simple as it could be, these metallic discs are additionally my favourite design function. The first time I picked up the G Pro X, I discovered myself rubbing the facet, spherical and spherical and spherical. In photos the disc may appear to be flat metal, however it’s not. It’s etched with dozens of ultra-fine concentric circles, and whenever you hint them together with your finger it feels just like the facet is spinning—however it’s not.

It has nothing to do with the standard of the G Pro X, proper? Or possibly it does. I’m certain you can make an argument that it speaks to Logitech’s consideration to element. You might—however I simply suppose it’s a neat phantasm.

Logitech packages two units of pads with the G Pro X. Leatherette is the default, however there are alternate microfiber pads included as nicely. I swapped for the latter and by no means went again—the material appears equivalent to the fabric Astro’s used on the A40 and A50 headsets for years, a private favourite. It will get heat, however it’s so rattling tender I’m prepared to place up with it.
