First Look: Logitech Gaming Headset G330

1:19 /

The G330 Gaming Headset is one of, if not the, most comfortable headsets we've ever tested and may have you sacrificing audio quality for comfort.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Hey, what's up, everybody? I'm Jeff Bakalar for CNET.com, and today we're checking out the Logitech G330 gaming headset. Now, the G330 is an incredibly comfortable gaming headset that features a unique behind-the-head design, something that we haven't really seen in a gaming headset before. The boom mike is adjustable, and it can also move completely out of the way. Sound quality, unfortunately, is about average. We weren't blown away at all by the sound. Now, the headset does not do surround sound, but it does do a good job of stereo isolation. We really like the USB dongle that consolidates both the microphone and headphone jack that terminate at the end of the headset, plus Logitech says if you use the USB dongle when connecting it to your computer, you supposedly get a better sound quality. That's said, we couldn't really tell the difference when we tried it out for ourselves. The headset is priced affordably at $50.00, but there are better sounding options out there. If you do decide to go with something like the G330, you're definitely sacrificing sound quality for overall comfort. I'm Jeff Bakalar, and this has been the Logitech G330 gaming headset. ^M00:01:17 [ Music ]
