Review Of The Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset: Elegant Listening

The wired gaming headphones with a wide range of customizing possibilities are the Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset. They are also incredibly cozy, well-made, and their boom mic performs admirably overall. However, they are rather big and perform poorly in noisy areas, like most gaming headphones do. Your experience could differ from others’ because of how dramatically different users’ audio delivery can be.

Both style and comfort

Not your normal gaming headphones, these. The G Pro X’s design is both upscale and classy, in contrast to the aggressive designs or RGB that many rival headsets flaunt. The cups are held in place by aluminum forks on an aluminum fork-covered steel headband. Those have a silver circle with the Logitech G logo in the middle and are entirely black. It has an eye-catching radial pattern when light reflects off of it. There is no doubt that the premium materials cost more here.

In the box, there are two sets of earpads. Preinstalled are the leatherette ones, however Logitech also provides breathable velour pads. I tested primarily with leatherette pads. The velour is lighter and more breathable, which I liked for longer periods despite the fact that the leatherette provides a better seal.
Even on my head, which some have said is slightly larger than typical, the G Pro Xs are snug but not too tight, and there is plenty of room in the cups for even the largest of ears. The Pro X weigh only 11.3 ounces (338 grams), which is not a lot of weight.
Condenser microphone can be removed. It attaches to the left cup when playing multiplayer games, streaming content, or participating in meetings, but you can remove it when you’re just watching a movie, listening to music, or playing a single-player game without speaking.


You may alter the sound of the headset and microphone using the complementary Logitech G Hub program. G Hub is incredibly responsive, well-organized, and simple to use. Let’s start with the microphone since it is the most notable and comprehensive area of G Hub for the Pro X. It offers a variety of sliders, including High-pass filter, De-esser, Compressor, and Limiter, to let you alter the sound of your voice. By selecting the Advanced Controls check box, you can see these controls. Such fine control will be appreciated by audiophiles, but if it overwhelms you, you can just pick from the presets on the left. They are divided into two categories: Blue VO!CE Presets and Pro/Broadcaster Presets. The pro/broadcaster preset section’s “Explore more presets” link downloads presets made by other players. Now, there aren’t many community settings, but as more players start utilizing the G Pro X, that number is sure to increase.

Also, you may make your own presets (and publish them to the G Hub for sharing with other users), save your current profile to the USB DAC, and transfer it from one PC to another.
Two additional nice features of the microphone settings. In order to give you a better understanding of how each preset differs from the others and the impact that each slider has, you may first watch the Advanced Control sliders move when you select various settings. Second, you can quickly and simply hear how the sound of your voice alters with various presets by recording a sample of your own speech and playing it back from within the microphone settings section. Equalizer and Acoustics are the other two areas of G Hub for the headset, in addition to Microphone settings. You can choose from the headset’s EQ presets in the Equalizer section or make your own. For FPS and MOBA games, there are EQ settings created by professional gamers, as well as others. Moreover, a community component exists where presets can be downloaded and uploaded. You can enable and adjust virtual DTS Headphone:X 2.0 surround sound in the Acoustics area, as well as select the master volume, mic levels, and sidetone.

Audio composition

The Pro X were excellent headphones for chat, music, and gaming. In comparison to using the included Y-splitter to connect the headset to the microphone and headset ports on a gaming laptop or gaming PC, I found the USB adapter provided superior sound.

The Pro X worked flawlessly with Hitman 2 when I tried it. Guards on the prowl could be heard walking nearby, and the surround sound was excellent for both those sounds and more evocative ones like wind rustling through a beach cottage. Also, it has a strong bottom end, which makes bullets pop.
I also gave it a try while listening to music and discovered that Linkin Park’s “What I’ve Done” had a good combination of powerful vocals, guitars, and drums in addition to a thumping bass.
Even without the Blue Voice features (see Features and Software, below), the boom mic was clear during calls, albeit it occasionally picked up hissing noises.
Using the leatherette ear cups instead of the velour pads, the sound quality is somewhat better overall. Simply said, the former create a tighter barrier around the ear, preventing sound leakage. On the other hand, the velour ear cups were more comfy for extended gaming or listening periods.


The Logitech G Pro X is adaptable, cozy, and even opulent. It seems like a premium package rather than just a premium device because it has powerful sound and every accessory and cable you could possibly need.
Although amazing, the software required to make the essential functions work will undoubtedly put some newbies off. There is some experimentation to be done if you are unfamiliar with microphones and audio. A headset costing $129.99 may be too much for some people.
