Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset Review
When comparing the Logitech G Pro X gaming headset to its close competitor, the Razer BlackShark V2 – though on similar playing fields – Logitech still comes on top.
- For instance, the headphones are completely different between the brands. The Logitech G Pro X is made of primarily metal, with a black-painted thick steel frame.
- The memory foam ear pads and headband cushion are a dream during hours-long gaming sessions. The brand proves itself with this well made sturdy product perfect for everyone.
- The Razer BlackShark V2 headset has a similar build to the Logitech G Pro X, however, the details are what sets this product back.
- Its headphones also have memory foam ear pads and headband cushions, but the hinges on the frame are a mix of flimsy wireframes and cheaply made plastic that does not seem very long-lasting.
- This type of build makes the headset lightweight, which is a positive aspect, however, the long-term durability is questionable with the materials that make up the main parts of the headset.
So what else sets the Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset apart from its competitors? Read on for all of the comprehensive pros and cons you should consider before adding these to your shopping cart.

Specs and Features
Out of the box, the Logitech G Pro X headset comes with a 1.8 meter USB to USB-C charging cord, extra memory foam, cloth ear pads, a USB transmitter, a detachable mic with foam windscreen, and a carrying bag.
What We Really Like
There are plenty of amazing things the Logitech G Pro X Headset has that make us love it, but here are a few features that stood out:
The Logitech Pro X Gaming Headset is a very comfortable set of headphones. Whether you are working an entire 8-hour shift while listening to classical music or just jamming and gaming with your friends all day, this headset is best for both worlds.
The headset comes with two different combinations of ear pads for all-day comfort. You have a choice of memory foam pad styles: leatherette or microfiber. The leatherette pads help to create a better seal with your head if minimizing sound leakage is more important to you. The ear pads are big and deep, which should fit most ear shapes and sizes.
The headband part of the headset is wide and padded which is great for distributing the weight evenly for optimal comfort. There are various headband adjustments that are available in order to gain a snug, but still comfortable fit.
The detachable condenser mic is great for those who usually stream, attend virtual meetings, or play multiplayer games. If you are wanting to game solo and jam to some music, you can easily remove the microphone from the left ear cuff.
The Logitech website states the battery life of this particular headset to be 21 hours on a single charge. After doing some testing, at a consistent output of ~75dB, the Logitech G Pro X Wireless lasted 21 hours and 33 minutes.
The headset charges using a USB-C cable, so while it doesn’t support any kind of fast charging, a full recharge should only be a couple of hours.
Since most people do not game or work for 21 hours a day, these headphones get a good 3-5 days of usage out of them before needing to be charged.
Great Audio Capabilities
The Logitech G Pro Gaming Headset is a great set of headphones for gaming, music, and chat. There are also volume settings for adjusting different sound sources.
We used the surround sound function while playing various game titles on PC. We didn’t have to adjust the volumes of different sound sources since it sounded lifelike and detailed enough to enhance the playing experience.
They have a well-balanced yet punchy sound characterization and a Blue Voice microphone that delivers great recording quality, all while doing a fantastic job of isolating speech from background noise.
Overall, the sound is crisp and clean with the right mixes of highs, mids, and lows to balance out the ultimate gaming and working experience when it comes to audio capabilities
What Could Be Better
Of course, with all of the pros that the Logitech G Pro X headset comes with, there are a few ways that they miss the mark compared to other competitors.
Overwhelming Software Interface
The provided Logitech G Hub software is extremely full-featured. With numerous customizable options to adjust the microphone, it can be very overwhelming for new users.
The software involved in getting the audio and microphone capabilities running, while impressive, will definitely intimidate and frighten away some newcomers. If you don’t already know about microphones and audio, there’s some time-consuming experimenting to do.
There seem to be almost too many choices of filters and presets to sift through to find a simple one that works for your particular application.
Only Works Through USB Transmitter
The Logitech G Pro X Wireless doesn’t support Bluetooth and instead uses a large USB transmitter to connect the headset to your PC. This means there is a lack of portability that other competitors have. There is no walking in a park or using these headphones at the gym since the USB transmitter is the only way to connect this headset.
The range of the audio tends to suffer depending on the building materials between the USB transmitter dongle and wherever you are roaming in your home.
The Logitech G Pro X Gaming headset is a gamer’s dream. The headphones themselves are comfortable, they are very affordable compared to their main competitors, and have great sound quality.
With extensive battery life, these headphones are great for long-time gaming sessions with friends.
