Logitech G430 Headset Review

 

Logitech has become an icon in the gaming peripheral industry with their G-series line of keyboards, mice, and headsets. The company recently overhauled the G-series by giving it a new look, as well as announcing a slew of new gaming accessories to add...

Overall, the Logitech G430 headset is a quality product, but is it worth the $80 price tag? Yes, it is very worth it. In fact, we think the headset is worthy of a $100+, so you’re definitely getting a bargain here. However, not every product is...

O.K. Headphones, horrible usb sound card

 

If you like the headset, I urge you to get the g230's which is the exact same headset that comes on the g430's. And spend the saved $40 on a sound card of you really want the simulated 5.1 or 7.1 surround.

To start off they come somewhat nicely packaged. The color combination was nice for me since I go for an all black/blue color combo on my computer stuff. The pads on the headphones don't get hot on your ears due to the mesh material on the. The pads...

Now the cons. I will start off with the smaller stuff and work up to some of the other things. The "braided cable" or "paracord cable" tangles soooo easily. It becomes twisted up very easily just by taking off the headset and setting them down. Unless...

Great headset

 

would recommend to a friend.

Got $15 off with a promo NewEgg was running half a year ago, so the price was good. Comfortable cloth padding that doesn't promote sweating. Good volume. Surround Sound makes a huge difference if you are comming from a headset that doesn't have it

Bass a little weak. Plastic feels a little cheap, but after packing and unpacking these from my drawer for a half a year, they have held up so far

Logitech G430

 

Feel good, sound ok with stereo mode

Popping and crackling when it surround sound mode. Doesn't work properly with any voice comms in surround sound. Basically it's an expensive set of stereo headphones, surround sound is completely useless

Consumer review by:

Very Nice

 

I would, and have recommended it to all my friends.

Very nice sound quality ; Surround sound is great ; Mic quality is great ; Uses metal where it is needed (for structure) and plastic where not, making it very light ; Braided cable is very tangle-proof. I have placed this in a backpack without any...

Somewhat tight and uncomfortable, but you get used to it after about a week

Consumer review by:

Simulated Surround but does work

 

The headset use Dolby Digital 3D technology, so people who say you are bound in stereo because you don't use the USB dongle are wrong. If you have a sound card with 3d audio capability the surround will work also. The sound card should be set to stereo...

It had good sound quality & the surround work well despite only using 2 speaker. Even the Sub woofer work on those with only a simple jack for the audio & another for the mic. The cable is breaded nicely

The plastic feel cheap where it hold the headset speaker. The color choice is also questioning, but that's an opinion

Great headset, beware of refurbished.

 

BEWARE OF REFURBISHED ITEMS! First one came DOA which really aggravated me and had to waste almost 2 weeks with doing an RMA for another one.

I got this headset for 39.99$ on sale which was great value considering it goes for around 70$ new ; I love the feel, it is sturdy but heavy so make sure you don't drop it. It has a metal band which reassures quality. It fits tight over your head (but...

The mic on my last G430 which was brand new did sound a little better and picked up sound better. But this one is still good regardless ; Heavy, so don't drop it because you are more likely to break it

Great headset

 

So I finally decided to ditch the USB adapter and the Logitech software all together, and use the headphone and mic jacks on the front of my case. I have a discrete sound card, so why not. Set it up for 8 speakers, high impedance, adjusted the EQ to...

Sound great (with the right software), comfortable, amazing price

The Logitech surround software is really bad. Tried it plug and play first (with the USB connector that comes with it), they worked but the sound levels were really low no matter how high I pumped the volume up. I found Logitech's Gaming Software on...
