Review: Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset

Logitech G Pro X turned out to be a great gaming headset with an attractive price and a lot of great features that I reviewed and evaluated for you in my review.

If you want a wired gaming headset, you have to choose between a simple, functional model for less than $100 or a premium, multi-function model for more than $200. In the middle is the Logitech G Pro X, Logitech’s newest gaming headset and a notable upgrade over the previous G Pro model. This headset, priced at $129.99*, has a comfortable design. The $129.99 headset features a comfortable and sturdy design, plenty of accessories, a 7.1-channel USB sound card and a remarkable number of software sound settings.

The Logitech G Pro X wired gaming headset combines a classic and comfortable design with a USB sound card loaded with customizable headphone and microphone options.

G Pro X design

Logitech G Pro X

The G Pro X gets a significant improvement in style and build quality over the previous, mostly plastic G Pro gaming headset. The curved matte black plastic cups now have bright chrome round aluminum plates on the back with the Logitech G logo.

The ear cushions are made of soft memory foam wrapped in black faux leather that matches the foam and leatherette padding on the headband. The earcups are attached to the headband with sturdy Y-shaped matte black steel headbands that allow them to swivel vertically but not rotate. Short spiral cables connect the earcups to each other under the headband gasket.

The result of all these elements is a durable, comfortable design that can be worn for extended periods of time, comparable in fit and feel to the Turtle Beach Elite Pro 2 .And a noticeable step up from previous Logitech G-Series gaming headsets.

If the faux leather feels too warm around your ears, Logitech offers a set of fabric-wrapped ear cushions. It’s a welcome alternative, but the pads are attached to the cup with very thin strips of faux leather, and attaching them properly can be a bit tricky. Magnetic mounts like those used by the Turtle Beach Elite Pro 2 and Astro Gaming A40 TR for their ear cushions are much easier to secure and faster to switch.

The left earpiece holds the G Pro X’s two physical connectors. The 3.5mm port for the two included headset cables points straight down, and the second 3.5mm port for the boom microphone points diagonally down and forward. One is a two-meter (6.5-foot) cloth-wrapped cable designed for PCs, with a built-in remote control with a microphone mute switch, volume control wheel, and shirt clip.

The other is a 1.5 meter (4.9 ft.) long mobile cable in a rubber jacket with a built-in microphone and mute switch. Both cables end with a four-pole 3.5mm jack on both ends. Unfortunately, neither cable has mobile playback controls if you want to use the headset as a headphone with your phone.

A simple neat solid design without much chic.

USB card and G-hub

If you have a PC with separate headphone and microphone jacks, you can use the included 0.4-foot splitter for a direct analog connection. That’s not the best way to connect the headset to your PC, however, since the G Pro X also comes with a USB sound card. The card is a small, flat black plastic box about the size of a USB drive with a 3.5mm port for the headset on one end and a two-inch permanently attached cloth-wrapped cable ending in a USB-A connector on the end.

The card works with Logitech G Hub software and includes support for 7.1-channel DTS Headphone:X 2.0 surround sound simulation. Since the headset itself has a 3.5mm jack, you can use it with any modern gaming console or mobile device with a headphone or headset jack, but the sound card and accompanying software will only work with a PC.

The G Hub software offers an impressive selection of headphone and microphone settings. As for listening, there’s a five-band equalizer with lots of presets and the ability to create your own profiles. This is a fairly standard feature for gaming headsets with PC control software, although the inclusion of custom EQ settings by eSports professionals such as Bjergsen, Hamlinz and Myth from Team SoloMid is new.

Really interesting settings are available in the microphone menu and the many options available with Blue Voice processing from Blue Microphones. In addition to gain and side tone settings, you can use and create microphone presets with a three-channel voice equalizer and adjustable high-pass filter, noise reduction, expander/gate, de-esser, compressor and limiter. Esports Pro presets are also available for your microphone, as well as profiles to emphasize your voice, whether it’s low or high, or even sound like you’re playing AM radio. It’s a level of customizability I haven’t seen in other gaming headset microphones.

Microphone Performance

The mic itself sounds great, picking up a lot of detail in the test recordings. My voice sometimes sounded a little too hissy with the default Broadcaster setting, but some experimentation with mic positioning and the G Hub’s extensive setting options can fix that. It’s a clear, clean microphone that will satisfy your needs for the most casual streaming and recording. However, if you are very serious about recording your voice, you should consider getting a dedicated USB microphone.

Gaming Performance

Forza Horizon 4 sounds very good on the G Pro X via the USB sound card. The subwoofer isn’t particularly powerful, and the rumble of the engines won’t shake your head even if you turn up the bass with EQ, but the bass and midrange over the subwoofer get enough presence to sound very full without EQ. The treble and midrange sound sculpted and clear even with the flat EQ setting, which allows each car’s engine sound to vary from the shrill howl of sports cars to the aggressive roar of trucks. In the Lego Speed Champions DLC, tipping objects sound right and clean, like tipping a pile of Lego bricks.

Overwatch also sounds detailed and full, with a slight touch of DTS Headphone:X surround sound simulation. The game’s bloated, epic soundtrack gets a modest amount of bass and low midrange, as do the heavier guns and explosions. The high midrange frequencies stand out, allowing gunfire and the voices of the various characters to be heard clearly in the action.

Overall, good headphones, quality sound. Minor notes do not make this headset average. Rather, it is a matter of taste.

Modest price, premium features

The Logitech G Pro X gaming headset is a great choice if you want high-quality features and build quality at a relatively low price. The $130 package includes a sturdy, comfortable headset with two sets of ear cushions, and a DTS Headphone:X 2.0 USB sound card that provides a remarkable variety of EQ and sound processing settings for both headphones and microphone.

If you want an even more premium wired headset, you’ll have to spend considerably more for the Turtle Beach Elite Pro 2 + SuperAmp or the Astro Gaming A40 TR + MixAmp Pro TR. At $200 and $250 respectively, both alternatives go from USB sound card to physical mixer amplifiers with controls and a variety of connectivity options, and offer slightly higher build quality. The Astro Gaming A10, on the other hand, is a great simple wired gaming headset, available for half the price of the G Pro X, though it doesn’t seem as reliable or comfortable. On an average level, the Logitech G Pro X is a fantastic manufacturer and our editorial choice.

The Internet and new technology have become part of my life and I can avidly study new trends to keep up with what's new. I can also play games, work with videos, conduct business (and not so much) negotiations, where the headset is actively used. So I have a lot to tell you and a lot to recommend.
