Logitech G PRO X Gaming Headset with Blue VO!CE Review
Logitech G PRO X: Testing and Conclusion
Upon first impression, I was really happy to see the curved yolks as this allowed the headset to firmly grip my ears with even pressure. There was even enough room for glasses to slide between me and the ear cups. At 340 grams with the microphone and some cable, the PRO X was not too heavy and did not cause any noticeable fatigue in my neck.
Sound quality was also very good as there was little to no sound distortion from the two 50mm drivers. I switched back and forth between the external USB sound card and my onboard audio, which has the Sound Blaster Recon3D. Using the external USB sound card and the G Hub software, I played around with the low, mids, and high ranges to see if I noticed any distortion. I also did the same using the equalizer to the Sound Blaster Recon3D Control Panel.
With the Sound Blaster Recon3D Control Panel, the frequency range ran from 31Hz to 16K. I played around with each frequency range and did not find anything too noticeable when it came to normal use. I like to set my EQ to have a slightly louder low and high range, while keeping the mid-range at default. The low range provided enough bass for games and music, while the mid to high range allowed me to catch even some of the slightest whispers in movies.
Of course, I cannot end this review without talking about the microphone and its Blue VO!CE technology. Right off the bat, the microphone on the PRO X headset is one of the best I have ever played with. For a second, I did think about doing live streams of my games, but I think it would really help with my meetings at work instead. The G Hub software has many settings to play around with, making it very flexible to sound savvy people. This allowed me to make fine adjustments to my voice settings. The G Hub software also includes microphone presets for users who are not comfortable with fine tuning audio settings.
Before I started tuning my microphone settings, I checked out the sound settings for the presets to see which one I thought sounded the best. I personally liked the Broadcaster 2 preset as it gave a very nice and natural sound to my voice. After selecting this preset, I went ahead and adjusted the other settings and the voice equalizer to my liking. Once I got everything tuned to how I wanted, I was amazed at how much clarity the microphone on the PRO X sounded compared to other gaming headsets.
With the leather ear pads and the soft leather headband, the PRO X was comfortable even after a few hours of gaming and music. The cloth ear pads were also comfortable, but overtime, they will be harder to clean compared to the leather pads. I also noticed the cloth pads did not isolate the outside noise as well. It was not very noticeable, but it was there.
Even though the PRO X does not fold, it was designed to fit inside the provided carrying bag. This is a great idea for portability since it does include mobile accessories. And since this headset can pass both microphone and sound through the 3.5mm jack, this makes it ideal to pair with laptop computers or other mobile devices.
The Logitech G PRO X comes with a 2-year warranty. Logitech warrants its hardware product shall be free from defects in materials and workmanship for the length of time identified on the product packaging beginning from the date of the original retail purchase.

Priced at $129.99 shipped on Amazon, the Logitech G PRO X gaming headset is a premium product that is great for gaming and live broadcasting.

Blue VO!CE can only work with the external USB sound card, and Logitech is not planning to sell the external USB sound card independently. This is because it was designed around the G PRO X gaming headset. Overall, if you are in the market for a premium gaming headset for gaming or live broadcasting, the extra premium for the Logitech G PRO X gaming headset it worth the investment.
