Logitech G PRO X Wireless Review – As soon as I’ve put on the Logitech G PRO X last year, I fell in love. I love the look and feel of the headset and the fact that it has Blue microphone & Blue VO!CE technology that comes with it. But if you don’t like the fact that the headset is wired, you might not be that thrilled and waited for the next Logitech G’s flagship headset.
Well, your wait is over because Logitech G PRO X Wireless is as good as the original version, but without the cord!
Packaging & Unboxing
Extra memory foam cloth ear pads are included so you can swap them over to your preference. I prefer the memory foam leatherette ear pads but you may want to switch them during Summer.
Design & Features
There is no mistaking it. The design is pretty much the same as the wired, Logitech G PRO X and that’s okay. I love everything about the headset – its look and feel, its comfort, its controls, and sound quality. The headset feels light and has the right amount of pressure to the head.
The ear cups fully cover my whole ears and offer great passive noise isolation with very comfy memory foam leatherette ear pads.
Unfortunately, Logitech doesn’t have a 3.5mm option like the Razer BlackShark V2 Pro. Thankfully, the headset can last up to 20 hours and rechargeable via USB-C.
If you are using a Yeti Nano, Elgato Wave:1, or other microphones for streaming or team communication, you can detach the microphone from the PRO X Wireless. However, you’ll lose Blue’s customisation tech through Logitech G HUB. It’s definitely one of the most advanced customisations ever on a gaming headset.
For more details on the available customisation options, make sure to check out their dedicated page.
As far as sound quality goes, the G PRO X sounds remarkable for a wireless gaming headset, thanks to the 50mm drivers. For music listening, the sound is satisfying and it doesn’t over emphasize on the lower end (bass). If you need more kicks, you can tweak it through G HUB equaliser.
The headset also supports DTS Headphone:X 2.0 simulated surround sound that you can enable/disable.
I tested the Logitech G PRO X Wireless playing Overwatch and Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War for around two weeks and have a great experience in both games.
Comfort wise, I have no issue wearing the headset playing for hours. The “problem” is that the headset has a really good fit (which is great for passive noise isolation) that I sometimes can’t hear my surroundings anymore. Changing the foam pads definitely help, but if you like to be immersed in your games, you’ll definitely love it.
Sound-wise, the headset offers great sound quality overall in games and can handle many, different audio cues at once in the midst of frantic battles, plus bring out that game ambience sounds. In Overwatch, the audio positioning is so good that I can identify many incoming threats before I see them with my eyes and also the threat types specifically.
Through its excellent microphone quality, I usually then communicate the threat to my team so we are not taken by surprise.
In this clip, I could hear the enemy’s Genji harassing our Widowmaker through sound alone and while I tried to come to the rescue, I was too late. However, I was all ready for the enemy and managed to frag him.
Likewise in Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War, wearing a gaming headset with accurate audio positioning is a must when you are playing certain modes in multiplayer like Free for All. I can hear exactly where the enemies are when they are approaching, and also the type of floor they were running on. This means I can anticipate where they are coming from and have my ADS (aim down sight) ready even before they pop on my screen (or run around and flank them).
Logitech G PRO X Wireless Review Conclusion
Having a great gaming headset like the Logitech G PRO X Wireless doesn’t just give you the best immersion, but also win you games (yes, I said it). With the information that you get straight to your ears in a nick of time, communication and quick decision can determine a win or a loss.
Thanks to Logitech LIGHTSPEED wireless technology, I never experience any latency in my online, competitive games so far and without the cords, I’ve had a better gaming experience than the original PRO X wired headset. You do have to pay for the best experience, though. The Logitech G PRO X Wireless retails for AU$399.95, compared to the wired G PRO X’s AU$279.95.
But if you have the money, this wireless gaming headset is a gem to have and you will not be disappointed. It has now become my current, favourite gaming headset to use.
