This is an absolutely spectacular headset I must say I'm really glad I bought these featuring Gaming Grade wireless connectivity, 7.1 Surround sound, 3 G-Keys on the side with volume control and some comfy cushions to keep your ears from hurting after long periods of gaming I gotta say this is by far the best (And the most expensive) Gaming Headset I have ever owned. So lets talk a bit about the headset itself.
On that note the Microphone does not make any noise when moving it up and down however it doesn't move when I start head-banging to some music the Microphone also moves left and right to contour around your face.
Now if yo uread reviews about this headset on amazon or anywhere else you'll know by now that the Noise Cancelling Microphone doesnt cancel noise at all. It will only cancel noise when using the voice morphing software built into the control software for the headset. Is this a problem? Not at all I sound fine when talking on vent. My Clan mates don't complain about my microphone(And they complain if theres even a breeze in your headset) So I know its fine. I can hear my background noise when I test myself but overall I think its fine. This lack-of-feature doesnt break the headset or make it worth any less..... I just wish Logitech would talk about this issue and tell us if they're going to fix it.
We have the G930's G-Keys. You can program these buttons to do whatever the hell you want. Button presses, Mouse clicks, Media controls and some other things. (The software does support third party plugins so you can develop your own commands if you have the skills)
At the lower half of the earcup we have a Mute button and the volume scroll and on the back side we have the power button and the Surround Sound toggle which lets you switch between 7.1 surround sound or regular stereo sound.(If you switch to stereo sound members of your clan on vent can only be heard through the... right ear piece. Why? I have no idea. It's not been a problem since I leave surround sound on all the time.)
The battery life is around 6 hours with somthing playing all the time and charging time is about 2 hours. The charger is on a small stand with the wires stretching about 3 feet and connects to the headset using this special little usb...thingy....(Some people have a way with words. I don't.) That I've seen on the Motorola droid. You get used to just popping it in without looking at the headset after a while.
Now after reading the post to myself I realize I sound like a total fanboy. I swear I'm not. Nor am I being paid by Logitech to make this review and just to settle your doubts I will now talk about all the weird kinks that the software has.
Firstly the Voice Morphing software is NOT made by Logitech. It's powered by Screaming Bee technology which if Im not mistaken is free. It offers you the ability to sound like a troll or a robot or a... Space squirrel. It's nothing special Space Squirrel is hilarious when you want to bitch somone out. I wish they would have allowed for tone and pitch control but hey It's only a $150 USD good voice morphing software costs alot more.So it has lol worth ability but it's not something to buy the headset for.
I'm running Win7 x64 and when I plug the headset in it takes a few disconnects and reconnects before it starts to work(You dont have to pull it out it just does it itself) When I plug it in I hear the windows connecting chime then the disconnect chime then the reconenct chime again and this repeats a few times then finally the headset connects. I think it's really odd but another "Weird. But no big deal" thing.
So that's it for the review. Overall I think the Logitech G930 is a great wireless headset. Probably the best thing on the market right now. I'd definetly recommend this to anyone and everyone. If you have any questions leave a comment and I'll get back to you asap!
Btw, These are my Magnets. Behold.
