Logitech G933 Artemis Spectrum Gaming Headset Review

/ Nov 22nd, 2016 No Comments

When it comes to gaming headsets, companies such as Astro Gaming and Steelseries dominate the market. This isn’t without reason — these companies create some of the best headsets designed specifically for gaming. However, high quality gaming headsets come in all shapes and prices, and many gamers expect their money to go toward something that can be used on more than just games.

Logitech is best known for its classic PC accessories, but the Logitech G933 Artemis Spectrum gaming headset may be one of the best sets that doesn’t have an Astro or Steelseries logo on it. Its bulky design is comfortable and its versatility is valuable. This headset makes it clear that Logitech is serious about the esports market.

Bulk Up

The G933 has an understated black look with sleek and simple lines. What stands out most about the headset is the large rectangular ear cups, a departure from the circular design of most headsets. These fit completely over the user’s ears. The headset looks bulky but is actually lightweight. Combined with the breathable blend of mesh fabric and other materials, the G933 is comfortable for hours of play.

PC gamers will be familiar with the headset’s LED lighting that surrounds both ear cups. RGB lighting can be programmed to work in unison with your games to create a fun light show. It has little benefit for the user but can be cool for those with synchronized keyboards and mice.

The left ear cup also contains a series of buttons to control volume, mute players, and choose between preset sound types. Panels over either ear cup detach to check or replace the battery and creatively store the included wireless dongle. It takes some getting used to in order to fully control the headset, but having all the buttons located on the left side of the headset is extremely convenient.

As for the wireless, it requires no setup aside from plugging an included USB dongle into your computer. It works perfectly with PC, but PlayStation 4, Xbox One and essentially every other device are not compatible with the wireless feature. It’s not a deal breaker though because the G933 connects to basically every electronic device through a 3.5 mm jack and all necessary cords are included in the box.

Sound Off

In terms of sound quality, the G933 is impressive. Armed with DTS Headphone:X 7.1 surround sound support, the headset can enhance the user’s level of immersion into a game. The 3D sound makes it easy to distinguish gunshots fired off in the distance from footsteps right behind you. Music also sounds crisp enough to make this headset good for both hardcore and casual uses.

A microphone is innovatively built into the headset’s left ear cup so that it retracts when not in use. The mic is designed to fit nicely around the user’s head, and it does. Despite its solid noise cancelling capabilities, the mic quality isn’t quite up to snuff. The sound was a bit muffled or echoing, according to people I talked to. For gaming, this mic gets the job done, but don’t intend to use it for podcasting or recording voiceovers.

The G933 has a built in rechargeable battery so that it can be used wirelessly without issue. Logitech says the battery can last around 12 hours on a charge and I found it does a smart job conserving energy. The long battery life makes this headset perfect for competitive gaming and friendlier weekend party sessions.

Overall

The regular price of the Logitech G933 is $199.99, but it can be found for much less on Amazon. At time of this writing, it was priced at less than $150, which is a great value for a quality headset that can be used for all types of games and casual music use.

PC users who can take full advantage of the G933’s intense audio quality and wireless features cannot go wrong with Logitech’s affordable gaming headset.

The Logitech G933 was reviewed using a headset provided by DTS.
