Review: Logitech G330 Gaming Headset
hey everyone its mark from cloud bytes coat UK and I'm very grateful that Logitech sent me the g3 300 gaming headset as you can see here to review and so this is the review okay so first impressions of these were great the real nice and lightweight which is the first thing that you notice and the definite thing that you want these will set directly on your ears as they're the behind the head design and not over-the-top which means your ears are taking the full weight of the headset so you want something that's really alive and these are definitely that the band here is fully adjustable as well as you can see that so it accommodates those of you where with the bigger head here which is great and it's also nice and comfortable at first and when I was wearing is I was thinking oh I don't know whether I'm too fond of these I think that's because I was used to no the head design I've never tried one behind the head before and after using these for a few hours you can't tell whether they're actually get used to them they sit nice the open ear design at first I was a I was a bit worried that the sound quality at lack but it doesn't doesn't harm it too much and it's actually stops you get in there ureas too hot which obviously you do when you know you came in for a long time you can see that the ears let's just see this all to focus on that okay there we go IRA made of a faux a soft foam material which is really nice as well nice and comfortable nice and padded on your ear so you shouldn't have any problems there okay so the microphone how does this work basically you put this on your head likes like that and if you flip the microphone over to your mouth and then you can flip it out of the way when you're not using it either right or right back see you also the microphone is fully flexible you can see there which is really nice so you can tilt it right in at your mouth or pop it away a little bit depending on exactly where you need it which is a great idea because too many microphones made so there's still and they're not suited for you because everybody's different and you can see here the microphone actually is quite big but it looks quite cool as well at last or slick design if you've got out of this market microphone why not make it look cool so that's exactly what lodges have done and they've put their symbol branding on that which looks really nice and you can see just on the other side there it's just the name of the handset okay so who are these main names that well my only game is on a budget okay these aren't too expensive at all they're not going to compete with your 5.1 your 7.1 surround sound and headsets however they're going to really compete in the stereo market those of you who aren't really that bothered about having a a surround sound has all perhaps not on that sort budget these retailers around 35 pounds I believe and for any gamer who is on a budget who wants a nice decent headsets so they can communicate definitely this one's worth game okay so the audio quality we have sort of look at two different aspects of this we've got the microphone quality and the earphone quality the earphones do laugh little on the base they sound tiny little bit tinny I suppose but all together not too bad at all okay you're not going to get a brilliant bass sound in this price range probably if you get any phones that are a little more closed with the closed earphone design they do give you a little bit better bass then they lack in other means as well so you've gotta weigh it up overall though when I was using these with modern warfare 2 I could hear people easily creeping up behind me through walls and things so that was easy the bangs sounded like buns so do you really need anything more than that I don't know maybe it's up to you okay so for the microphone quality test I've done a little audio clip for you and Hooters okay so this is a microphone test what you're hearing right now is the quality of the microphone which is plugged into the USB adapter and then into the computer I've used this over teamspeak which is a program light Ventrilo or Skype and issues for gamers to communicate to each other and friends of mine have said that the quality does seem really good nice and clear and no problems with it obviously the microphone has built-in noise canceling which isn't a 100% accurate and there is a little bit of background noise that it picks up but it is pretty good and considering my computer is pretty loud it's managing to block that out quite well just remember though when you are listening to this right now what you're hearing is through your speakers if your speakers aren't that great you're not going to hear a great quality if you speakers are very good you're probably going to hear pretty much what they sound like okay so let's jump back to the review okay so as you can see the audio wasn't to balance all the microphone quality is actually nice and crisp nice and clear yes I have used it in their team's week one playing modern warfare 2 and a lot of people most hear me find no problems at all I'm just nice and clear I was clear it done with the Plantronics game comm 367 headset as well the microphone this does seem a lot better than Plantronics and all the headsets that I've tried it's probably the best their headset for the microphone and I've tried the only issue I do really have with the hot overall sound is the lack of bass okay so here we have the inline remote control it's got a volume up volume down and a nice mute switch ideal for where mums bringing up your tea and you want to quickly mute the microphone see friends got here some people hate these some people really like them I personally like them they're useful and I can't see any better way really of doing it also you've got a little clip on the back here which is quite nicely branded so you can clip it on this shirt it's easy reach quick switch and you mute of the microphone okay so the cable is 2.4 meters long pretty much which is nice as well and not too long you may need something longer some of you but it was fine for what I needed it especially with this one being a USB adapter with the coming with the USB adapter even which means you can put it in the front of your computer rather than to stretch around the back you've got this standard Jack adapters here so that you can plug these straight into the back the pink and the green however if you don't understand all these samplers that I agreed you can also use this now I was quite shocked my son god is a couple years old now however I could not tell the difference hardly at all using this USB which basically gives you a sound card you plug this straight in this part acts as a sound card you plug the microphone in like so the headphones in like so and you're away no more is needed you don't need to install anything it's just plug and play really easy nice and simple you can use the built-in controls and windows and on the Mac to adjust your audio and your mic and it's nice and simple which is great and it works really well the quality through this was absolutely fine you've heard in that I have the audio tested the best wood that was gone through this as well so no problems at all okay so overall the logitech g-33 out gaming headset is a great headset I give it four and a half clouds of you not too sure that means that just go to the blog post you'll see in the link below out of five of course that is great headset really nice design nice and lightweight the microphone was amazing I can't believe how good the microphone was the only issues I have is the is the thin cable and a little lack on the locking on the base there other than that the headset is really great thank you so
