If there is one area of the computer industry that is darn near recession proof it is the gaming peripheral niche and many companies are aggressively pursuing these elusive consumers called “gamers”. While not exactly new to this market niche, Logitech is certainly doing everything they can to grab an even bigger slice of this pie. It seems every time you turn around Logitech has released another newer and better product with this niche in mind! Their latest and greatest offering is the G930 wireless headset.
On paper, these virtual 7.1 gaming headphones are not just a mere wireless “upgrade” of its wired sibling, but boast much needed refinements on the software side of things. The most notable addition to the software is its ability to allow tweaking each of the virtual speakers. This really makes a day and night difference for hardcore gamers who wish to adjust everything to their preference. The G930 cans will last for 9 hours before they need to be recharged with its micro-USB cable. The headset’s dual antenna setup is another killer feature that provides virtually interference-proof wireless surround sound over range of 40 feet. The game compatibility has also been improved immensely. There’s one caveat though: the $140 price tag.
Nice review on the G930. I had the G35s and got these as a Christmas gift. Huge upgrade in controls. My big head appreciates the lighter weight and comfrot factor too.
