Logitech G633 Artemis Spectrum RGB 7.1 Surround Gaming Headset Review

Looking Around the Logitech G633 Artemis Spectrum

The G633 Artemis Spectrum is a full-sized circumaural gaming headset. What should stand out is its size. While it is not the heaviest gaming headset we have reviewed, the earcups are hefty and thick to accommodate the electronics.Logitech G633 Artemis Spectrum

The foldable microphone is the only big business going on the front of the headset. Looking elsewhere, Logitech has put RGB light zones, volume control wheel, and the G-Keys on the back. While the placement of these controls may not appear to be an intuitive, it was easy using the left thumb to adjust the volume. It took a bit longer to remember the feel of the shape of the three individual G-Keys and they’re stiff enough that the entire earcup has to be held to press those buttons. By putting RGB LEDs on the back of the headset, the lighting is visible to others people standing around.Logitech G633 Artemis SpectrumLogitech G633 Artemis Spectrum

The G633 has thick foam earpads with ample earspace and padding on the headband wrapped in mesh cloth.Logitech G633 Artemis Spectrum

The adjustable headband is light, but sturdy. It has a high clamping force to secure the heavy headset on the head. Logitech G633 Artemis SpectrumLogitech G633 Artemis Spectrum

Two sets of hinges give the earcups articulation to rest flatly and securely on the head.Logitech G633 Artemis SpectrumLogitech G633 Artemis Spectrum

The microphone folds cleanly into the headset which automatically mutes it and causes the headset’s lights to flash red momentarily.Logitech G633 Artemis Spectrum

The tip of the microphone boom is also retractable and can be bent to adjust the pickup pattern. Muting the microphone from either system volume or the button on the headset turns on a red LED indicator on the tip of the boom.Logitech G633 Artemis Spectrum

The G633 comes with two cables: a 5 ft. (60 in. / 1.5 m) braided 4-pole 3.5mm cable and a 9 ft. 10 in. (118 in. / 3 m) long USB-to-microUSB cable. On the bottom of the left earcup are jacks for these cables. A sliding switch on the same earcup controls which jack receives the input.Logitech G633 Artemis Spectrum

The 3.5mm analog cable has an inline microphone and controller with a clip placed 6 inches from one end. It has a built-in volume control wheel that works independently of the source, a play/pause button for mobile devices, microphone mute, and a switch for choosing either the headset microphone or the inline microphone.Logitech G633 Artemis Spectrum

On each side of the headset are what Logitech calls swappable tags. These are stylized plastic plates held in place by magnets.Logitech G633 Artemis Spectrum

    Between this, and the new void series from Corsair. Which headset would you choose overall as the better product? Is the added cost to the Logitech headphones worth it? Or are they mostly on par and only give you slightly brighter lights that you’ll never see on your head (unless you’re an alien with tentacle eyes), but will probably be distracting on glossy/glass monitors during dark scenes?

      I reviewed the VOID, while David reviewed the Logitech. We’ve both tried both headsets, though. I personally struggled to find value with the VOID at $129 and I definitely don’t think the $199 G933 justifies that cost. I preferred the more neutral sound of the VOID to the Logitech for general use and found the Logitech a bit too bright and shrilly for non-gaming applications. They are both good wireless gaming headsets, but I struggled to find value with either of them at their current price points.

        So basically wait for one of them to go on sale and snag a pair with a discount in order to get a decent value from them. Thanks for the reply.

          You got it! The wired versions of both are cheaper, with the VOID at $99.

          I paid 89.99 about $110 savings.

      The two headset lines are very different from each other and they have their own pros and cons. As such, I cannot recommend one over the other without knowing your preferences.

      Both the Logitech G633 and Corsair VOID Wireless reviews cover sound and comfort, with the VOID generally winning out in both those categories. However, the G633 does have a specialized sound character which situationally makes it better. The lights on the Artemis Spectrum headsets are much better because of the larger lighting zones. The lights on both the Artemis Spectrum and VOID lines are not front facing which means there is no reflection or glare cast on computer monitors.
