The Logitech G533 Wireless Gaming Headset:
When it comes to using headsets and headphones for music and gaming, I’ve become rather picky, it’s not just a matter of quality of sound and brand name, but also comfort.
Overall the Logitech G533 Wireless Gaming Headset provides a solid gaming and music experience, with its lack of sound bleed, head comfort, and adjustable voice mic for communication or short video production. I am hung up on the USB adapter, but, if you can overlook that, you should have a great experience like me, I was sorry to see it go.
This is definitely an entry level headset and is an affordable headset for your noob gamer or budget gamer like me.
The Logitech G533 Wireless Gaming Headset is a large headset and can seem a bit weird when placing it on a table, it’s rather large indeed, though it’s flexible and seems like a sturdy build and doesn’t feel like you’re about to break an extremely delicate piece of technology.
The sound, as expected is stunning and clear, though, because of the size of the phones themselves I felt had a higher bass pitch for most rock styled music, though hip hop and house delivered a great experience and the sealing itself maintained the sound and had very little to no sound bleed even on the highest sound level.
As a gaming headset, it comes with a collapsible mic on the left of your headset. Testing the mic out, it seems fine, it’s clear, though, to be fair, it’s only just a bit more clear than it would be for a basic phonemic. I think there could have been a bit more energy placed here.
Recently, I managed to get my hands on some JBL Bluetooth Headphones, they’re simple, charge them, switch them on, and switch both my Macbook and Headsets blue tooth option on, and it’s connected.
When it came to the Logitech G533, I struggled to get the device connected to my laptop, only to realize you needed to connect a USB adapter to the laptop first, only then to connect to your headset. I found this process frustrating and a little disappointing, I expected more from a primarily gaming device, when a gaming rig already has a short supply of USB ports, an extra one used just for your headset is a bit of a pain and I feel a design oversight, the headset seems more than big enough to include it’s own Bluetooth emitter onboard.
Buying this Headset:
You should be able to pick this headset up at your local electronics store or online for roughly R1500. I’d save and upgrade to the already cooler: Logitech G633 Artemis Spectrum, for an extra R500 which looks a lot cooler, and I feel could provide better performance, though I’ve not tried it myself.
Final thought: It would be so cool if the Logitech logo lit up. Just saying, it’s the little things.
