Closer Look: Logitech G930

The Logitech G930 wireless headset is designed specifically for Windows. A single USB port is required for charging. Interestingly there is NO wired state. Although charging is done via USB, the wireless USB transmitter needs to be plugged in at all times.

Packaging is nice and compact. All manuals and CDs are contained in the square box and the charging dock tucked nicely on the left.

Included with the Logitech G930: a charging dock, USB wireless transmitter, driver installation CD, and a bunch of manuals. The installation is needed for making full use of the G930, as it includes software for 7.1 surround sound. Logitech still doesn't like to give away extras with its product. It would've been nice to have a carrying pouch of some sort for laptop owners or frequent travellers.

Out of the box, the first impressions were mixed. For one it looked awesome. The leather makes the G930 very classy. Good mix of rubber and aluminum is used at critical parts to allow maximum durability. However the majority of the outer shell is plastic and it creaks a lot when twisting and turning the different movable joints. Initially extra care was taken, only gently adjusting the G930. After a couple adjustments however I realized the build was excellent and didn't worry about it anymore.

All of the functionality is located on the left earpiece, including a rubber-coated fully bendable mic, volume adjustment, and numerous buttons of different functionality. The weight is fairly balanced on both sides. However the headset is quite a bit heavier than normal. Luckily the comfortable cushion at the top can take care of most of the weight.

The Logitech G930 Wireless Gaming Headset looks great and seems promising. The application of a wireless 7.1 surround sound headset clearly surpasses just gaming. In the next section Benchmark Reviews will take a closer look at detailed features.
