Logitech G430 Headset

 

The Logitech G430 gaming headset provides an immersive audio experience and effective noise canceling at a friendly $79 price.

Impressive surround sound; Noise-canceling microphone; Cozy and adjustable

Only available in blue; PC only

Immersion is a key part of the gaming experience, and the Logitech G430 delivers truly engrossing surround sound for just $79. If you want the same design in red and can live with basic stereo sound, you can find the G230 for as low as $39. However,...

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...

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

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...

Refurbished < Used

 

Do yourself a favor and DON'T buy refurbished things! It usually ends the same way! Manufacturer's put as little money and effort to fix the broken item to put it back to barley working standards just to resell. Most of the time they aren't even...

New ear pads and head pad, physical quality looks lightly used

Broken, defective on arrival ; Sounds like the headset went deep sea fishing and was retrieved from the water. Sound echoes and consists of extremely poor quality. Microphone is broken as well since I can't hear the playback and when I record something...

Great

 

Used? Couldn't tell

Cheap ; Looks good ; Great Wire ; OK Software

mic could be Better ; Volume Control could be higher
