Logitech G433 Gaming Headset Review

The Logitech G433 Gaming Headset are a good gaming headset, with a well-balanced sound, and a versatile design for everyday use. They have a detachable mic, a regular aux cable, as well as a USB/headset dongle for PCs.

The contents of the box can therefore be summarized as:

Logitech G433 Design

Compared with previous Logitech G-series gaming headsets, the G433 looks downright understated. It’s available in black, blue, red, or camouflage blue versions, and even the camo one is less eye-catching and explicitly gaming-themed than the Prodigy G231.

The earcups have a cloth-like exterior to match the grille cloth in front of each 40mm driver. The right earcup holds 3.5mm connections for both the audio cable and the removable boom mic, a flexible rubber arm that clicks securely into place.

The headband is colored plastic matching the earcups (plain blue for the camo model), with hinges to rotate the earcups flat. The padding under the headband is a bit thin, covered by mesh fabric.

The same fabric covers the earpads, which also feel a little light; the installed earpads can be swapped out for pads covered in a suede-like material, included with the headset.

I found the suede-like earpads to be a bit more comfortable, and better at blocking out ambient noise better than the mesh, though neither set felt particularly plush on my head. I found the thin earpads and headband padding began to feel uncomfortable over long listening periods.

Game Performance

Tekken 7 on PC sounds fairly powerful on the G433. The character dialogue and fighting effects are crisp and clear, but the bass-heavy electronic soundtrack comes through a bit timidly. While most of the music’s mix is well-balanced, the ultra low frequency, dubstep-like thumps lack the oppressive force you get on the Astro Gaming A10 at top volumes.

Doom on PC sounds powerful and dynamic, with Mick Gordon’s pounding soundtrack and the over-the-top audio effects coming through clearly. The very low frequency bass drops of the music don’t get quite the head-rattling force that they do on the A10, but the gunshots and explosions still pack a punch.

The included 7.1-channel USB sound card lets the G433 simulate surround sound with audio processing and mixing between the headset’s stereo drivers.

The effect is subtle in Doom, but I could get a sense of directional panning when dealing with enemies attacking from multiple directions.

Like all simulated surround sound in gaming headsets, the effect only works for directional audio across the left, right, and center; it doesn’t provide any sense of audio sources being in front of or behind you like a dedicated surround sound speaker system can.

It’s still a nice touch, especially for first-person games, but not vital.

Software

The Logitech Gaming Software has been updated to G HUB. We’ve adjusted the scores and text accordingly.

The Logitech gaming software offers different options depending on the headphone. With the Logitech G433, you get a good graphic equalizer as well as mic control with a sidetone feature so you hear your own voice.

You also get a good surround sound menu which overall makes for pretty customizable software. However, you have to use the USB dongle as the regular AUX or headset cables won’t be recognized by the software.

conclusion

In conclusion, the Logitech G433 are a pair of headphones that offer a good balance between sound and quality.

We are talking about a competent team, designed to be a tough competitor within its segment in the gaming department.

However, it falls short when compared to other types of headphones designed for audio enthusiasts. One of its strongest selling points may be its versatility.

This rig is designed to be the ideal companion on exciting adventures and dramatic victories at home, with the street-ready quality to take them on the road as a great mobile companion, while still looking good and feeling comfortable on the head.

However, it is clear that their construction is flimsy so it requires special care if you plan to use them in this way.
