BestGamingHeadset.com is proud to award our award for the best gaming headset to the Logitech Gaming Headset G930. If you are a gamer who wants a wireless connection that does not lag, and that lasts for up to 10 hours between charges this is for you. It has state-of-the-art audio with Dolby 7.1 Headphone Surround Sound, and it is made to be lag free with 2.4 Ghz of power. While this all sounds great, and the manufacturer has a good track record of making quality electronic products, the reviews always tell the story of whether or not this product is a winner with gamers.
A Word to the Wise for Those Who Wear Glasses
Several reviews have lamented that if you have to wear glasses to be able to play your games, this headset is probably not for you. The earpads, which are made of a faux leather-like material, will make a squeaking noise as they rub against the frame of your glasses. While other Logitech models have cloth earpads that can be replaced, this unit does not.
Other gamers were very happy with the units – for about a year. After that the headset would slowly start cutting out, until it got to the point of not charging at all.
Other Reviews From Those Who Loved the Headset
Other people who have used this brand of headset for a few years, are very happy with it. Almost everyone who has used this headset is amazed at the quality of the audio, with all spectrums, from lows to highs reproduced flawlessly and clearly.
There also seems to be a good deal of disagreement over the durability of this headset. Some people reported using them for years with absolutely no problem. Some people reported having to use duct tape to keep them together after as little as two weeks of use. Taking into account these wildly varying reviews, one can only surmise that those who had the most serious problems put the headset through much more use than those who had no problems. But once again, that is only speculation.
Other Reviews and Observations
Many people bought this headset for the express purpose of using it on Skype calls. Once again, while many people had nothing but good experiences with this headset, others endured the annoyance of being cut off for up to 8 seconds during a call. Other reviewers noted that before it disconnected, there was an annoying crackling sound that lasted for awhile.
The Bottom Line
With so many conflicting reviews, it is hard to make a definitive call on this headset. Even those who gave the headset a positive review had some problems with connectivity and getting the headset sync’d with the rest of their equipment. Still, if you look at other reviews, this is still one of the best rated wireless headsets on the market.
So, if you simply must have a wireless unit, this is probably your best bet. If you have to have something that is more reliable, you may want to consider a wired unit.
