Logitech G930 Wireless Headset Review
Anyone wanting the best experience at home for movies knows that a home theater is a must. The Logitech G930 Wireless Gaming Headset combines all of that audio experience into a classy wireless headset, allowing you to enjoy full surround sound anywhere without being restricted by cables. On paper the Logitech G930 seems to be capable of redefining PC entertainment. Benchmark Reviews will be testing this headset to see what level of audio utopia the G930 can achieve.
The Logitech G930 hits two important sweet-spots for enthusiasts: wireless connectivity and 7.1 surround sound. These are its key selling points. Naturally the 7.1 surround sound is software-driven, as each ear piece has one driver. This means audio that supports surround sound will be played accurately, while stereo audio can be emulated to create a surround sound effect. Wireless connectivity is becoming a big feature for many high-end IO devices as we all hate cable restrictions. Many devices sacrifice quality to gain wireless functionality, as seen with numerous gaming mice. It is also critical for sound to be lag free. Benchmark Reviews will be addressing all of these concerns.
There are numerous surround sound headphones and headsets on the market right now, but most stick with 5.1 surround sound. The number of wireless surround sound headsets is also relatively limited. In effect the Logitech G930 has very little competition if you're looking for exactly those two characteristics. What will make the Logitech G930 a promising purchase is if it retains all the qualities of high-end surround sound headsets while doing it wirelessly.
