Logitech G has been continuing their work on their PRO line of e-sports-geared products. It began with the Logitech G PRO Gaming Mouse and the Logitech G PRO Gaming Keyboard. The Logitech G PRO Gaming Keyboard, reviewed here, was a hit with us with its 10-keyless build, onboard memory, and overall solid make. Next up for us to take a look at is the just-released and now-shipping Logitech G PRO Gaming Headset.
Let’s dive right into the latest addition to the Logitech G PRO line-up.

The specs and silhouette of Logitech G’s PRO Gaming Headset may seem familiar. That’s because it is taking much from the Logitech G433 Headset that we reviewed last summer. It even uses the same Logitech G Pro-G drivers that we loved in the G433. However, here we have a new PRO look and build that falls in line with Logitech G’s PRO Series of products. The PRO Gaming Headset features an all-black build, housing replaceable leatherette earpads and leatherette cushioning on the headband. The ear cups extend and contract on stainless steel sliders and swivel to allow the headset to fold flat.
The headset comes ready for travel, featuring a bevy of removable components, such as a removable boom mic and removable cabling complete with an optional PC headphone and mic splitter. The detachable boom mic features a noise-canceling microphone, complete with pop-filter and a highly flexible arm. The PRO Gaming Headset’s cabling houses an in-line controller which has a mic mute toggler and a dial for controlling the incoming audio volume. The cabling terminates to a 3.5mm jack which allows you to use the headset with compatible Xbox One and PS4 controllers as well mobile devices and the Nintendo Switch. The headset also comes with a set of microsuede ear pads, giving you an extra wearing option.
As far as comfort goes, I was surprised by how instantly more comfortable the PRO Gaming Headset felt than the G433, despite having a similar build. The PRO Gaming Headset is as exceptionally lightweight as the G433, but that leatherette cushioning on the headband did wonders for the longer playing sessions. While we’re on the subject of leatherette, the leatherette cushioning on the ear pads not only excelled in acoustic sealing and passive sound isolation, but they were also quite soft. The microsuede earcups did offer a more breathable feel to them, allowing for longer comfort than that of the leatherette. However, as always, I found myself opting to stick with the leatherette’s for better in-game focus and maximum isolation.
The PRO line loves their threaded cabling and so do I, as threaded cabling works well against the kind of wire-snagging that rubbery cabling is susceptible to. That very cabling is working well here with the PRO Gaming Headset, whose cable is a nice and generous two meters long. This PRO Cable even utilizes a crosstalk-preventing 5-pole, dual-ground design, which makes sure that sounds from the game don’t leak into your voice chat, and vice versa.
The arm of the detachable mic is highly flexible while being exceptionally sturdy. You simply set it and forget it.
Overall, the Logitech G PRO Gaming Headset features a very solid and respectable build, making it a perfect complement to the PRO Series line. This is a very light headset that you can wear for hours on end before anything close to fatigue settles in. The headset’s grip is just right, maintaining a perfect acoustic seal while not being at all tight. Last but not least, it has a sleek and understated look to it while still maintaining the appearance of an attractive gaming headset.
