The tech peripherals company has introduced its new 2019 lineup of G-series gaming headsets “engineered to deliver the ultimate in sound science and the most immersive audio gaming experience”, featuring the Logitech G935 7.1 LIGHTSYNC, G635 7.1 LIGHTSYNC, G432 7.1, and G332 models. Oooooh.
The wireless G935 7.1 LIGHTSYNC is the marquee superstar, with up to 12 hours of battery time, comfy synth-leather pads, and a custom RGB lighting system to match your keyboard, mouse, and other accessories. The headset also includes Logitech’s hybrid mesh Pro-G 50mm audio driver for some monster bass boost, DTS Headphone: X 2.0 surround sound for 3D audio simulation, and a boom mic. The G935 can also be plugged in for wired play. The G735 7.1 LIGHTSYNC is the same, but wired (and cheaper). Both headsets support USB and 3.5mm connections, so you can use them on PC, console, or even mobile devices.
Local prices aren’t confirmed, but the US prices are at $170 (approximately R2380) and $140 (R1960) respectively. You should probably save up some extra for import costs and whatever on top of that, though.
For those of you on a less extravagant budget, you can choose between the wired G432 7.1 surround sound and G332 stereo headsets. Like the LIGHTSYNC models, the G432 7.1 includes DTS Headphone: X 2.0 surround sound, with a 50mm driver and a flip mic, but no RGB razzle-dazzle. Described in the press stuff as a “first gaming headset” so manage your expectations, the G332 delivers stereo sound, a flip mic, and… not much else, but it’s got nice red in-ear thingies, yo. Both headsets support 3.5mm connections.
Prices on those two are $80 (R1120) and $60 (R840), and in one of those awkward hey-kids marketing campaigns that cash in on what’s cool and trendy, Logitech is promoting the G432 and G332 as “the perfect battle royale” headsets.
“These headsets give every player a definitive audio advantage,” the press stuff explains. Okay, so now you know what to tell your mom.
