Logitech is rebranding their gaming series of products to carry the Pro moniker, but don’t be intimidated, anyone can use these headphones even if they’re not a serious “pro” gamer. Logitech added in their own patent-pending hybrid-mesh “Pro G” audio drivers. These drivers are supposed to solve common distortion problems and help deliver booming bass and precise clarity. The new mesh also makes for an extremely lightweight headset. The mic is also top notch and makes your voice come in loud and clear. This headset was a pleasure to review so check out my thoughts below.

Gaming headphone companies tend to follow similar design trends and patterns. Logitech is not much different in this regard. That isn’t a bad thing, mind you. The Logitech G Pro Gaming headset still looks amazing, you might even call it a “timeless” design. The Logitech G Pro Gaming headset is lightweight and constructed with a polymer shell. Yes, this is a plastic headset, but the polymer build is of high-quality and durable. Logitech has added their “Pro” logo to both sides of the headset just above the slider and the “G” logo over the backside ear cups. The left side of the headphones is where the microphone port is located and is made out of fiberglass with reinforced nylon joints.
The headband is made out of TR90 nylon that does offer some good comfort, even during long gaming sessions. Moving to the sliders, they’re made from stainless steel and it takes no effort to make sure the headset sits nicely on your head. Continuing down are the earcups which are made out of a nice leatherette material. Those earcups are on by default, but Logitech does offer a set of microsuede ear pads if you prefer to use those instead.
The bottom of the headset has a 3.5mm port for the nylon covered 2m cable, and that same cable has an audio control box. The mute slider is on the top and textured. The volume slider is on one side and the back side has a clip letting you tag the control box to your shirt. At the other end of the cable is the 3.5mm jack for computer or smartphone/tablet use. The length of the cable might be nice for some, but for me, I found it to be too long. It often got tangled up in my gaming chair and that’s just something I didn’t enjoy. I realize this is going to be a subjective perference so you may actually love the length of the cable.
Last but not least, the PC splitter has a 3.5mm port that will connect directly to the end of the headphone cable and then split into the mic and headphone ports that go into your computer.
I’ve never used a Logitech headset before, so I wasn’t sure what to expect when it came down to the sound quality. I figured since this was a gaming headset, they would be much like my Steelseries Arctis 3s or my Sennheiser GSP 302. While I went in knowing nothing at all, I was quite surprised as to how nice the sound was. It didn’t matter if I was playing games or listening to music or watching videos, the sound was always crystal clear. I could hear everything that was going on in games from footsteps or gunshots in Fortnite or Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 or even monsters in Monster Hunter World.
I’d be remiss if I failed to mention how music sounded on the Logitech G Pro Gaming headset. In a word, wonderful. The highs were much better than expected, while the mids were good, but could have been a bit better. It’s definitely not a deal breaker. The bass. Where do I start? As some of you may know, I listen to some heavier stuff most others wouldn’t listen to. As always, I tend to start with some songs that I know have good bass and then go to other songs for getting mids and highs. The bass was deep, not mind-blowing, but deep enough to my liking. I know headphones of this category aren’t something to be used just for music or video, but the Logitech G Pro Gaming headset can certainly handle your music time with ease.
We all want a gaming headset that is able to have everyone in your party or online services hear you very well and not have to listen to background noises such as music or loud yelling. Logitech added in a condenser to the microphone so it will respond to wider frequencies, lower signal to noise ratio and give it a higher sensitivity.
What that means is, it will cut out as much background noise as possible making sure only your voice will come through. The mic picked up only me when I was chatting with friends online and ignored the background music I usually have playing when I’m gaming. People in the party said they were able to hear me very clearly and didn’t notice any sort of feedback or distortion.
Gaming headsets have a wide price range and they will vary depending on features, sound and build quality. Some tend to be more expensive than they have to be because of certain branding associated with them, but I digress. The Logitech G Pro Gaming headset is priced at $89.99USD on Logitech’s site. You can find them on Amazon for $86.99USD, just a few bucks less but it’s a saving’s on your pocket. Yes, there are other brands of gaming headsets that sell for less but the Logitech G Pro Gaming headset is honestly priced very fairly for the features, sound, and build quality you’re getting.
As much as I enjoy using my Steelseries Arctis 3 headset, the G Pros have replaced it. I love the long-term comfort and build quality the headset provides, the price point is not terrible given that the sound and mic quality are the stars here. What good is a gaming headset if the sound and mic quality suck? Logitech got those right and I’d recommend these to anyone needing a sub $100 pair of gaming cans.
