review of the Logitech g935 the updated version of Logitech g933 now I did have the g933 but I never covered them because they weren’t that good, to be honest with you guys I’m just gonna you know I keep it honest here on.
Logitech is coming back with the g935 at a hundred and seventy dollars oh that’s a big hike so especially when there’s like the hyper cloud X twos and all those out there can these compete are they worth that extra dime these are wireless.
and they do have that 7.1 so let’s see if they are up to the task of uh you know helping us kill some noobs so let’s start with what they have in the Box now they have a 3.5 to 3.5-millimeter jack cord in there and that is so you can plug it up to your ps4 your Xbox or your Nintendo switch.
so you get some versatility here also in the Box is a USB charger so you can plug it in and use it while you’re charging the headphones and also the headphones themselves I do like that these have a hidden compartment to put your USB C.
receiver into on the left ear cup which is nice so when you’re storing them or you’re traveling you can just put it into the air cup and you’re good to go you won’t lose the charger no last year I wasn’t impressed with the g9 33 is.

because the cloth Pat’s or just horrendous they were scratchy they were stiff they didn’t form it just felt like you had two big blocks of cloth on your head and it wasn’t comfortable this year they’ve gone with some leather that is more comfortable the padding on it feels exceptional one thing I will say though is that the stitching hurts it hurts it’s not that comfortable it kind of presses into your ear and I’m kind of hoping that over time these will break down and break in to have them be more.
comfortable over time I think that Logitech chose the wrong size for the ear cups they made it big up top and small at the bottom I don’t like the feel of it I would rather it be small the top and big at the bottom I don’t know if that’s just a personal preference but I feel like that works a lot.
and is more comfortable also on the ear-cups you’ve got some RGB lighting now this in my opinion just isn’t worth it you are not gonna see it while you’re gaming I mean it looks cool when it’s on your desk but it only lasts for six hours with the RGB on and twelve with it off so there’s no reason to run the RGB you’re just cutting your battery life in half and for twelve hours for six hours that is just not acceptable for 2019 battery life standards now you can control this with the Logitech Hub software.
you can change it from like breathing and all that type of modes yadda yadda yadda you’re just cutting down your battery life that’s all I hear when I look at the list of RGB on there also on the left ear cup you’ve got three programmable buttons you got the volume scroll and you’ve got the power switch now the build quality this year isn’t ask creaky as last year it feels kind of nice there’s not much sound coming from it when you twist it let me give you a demonstration right now.
the game like nothing happened and it’s kind of nice you know sometimes not having to worry about oh shoot where’s my cord you know we’ve all been there where we get up from our chair and our headphones snap-down it’s cool that this is wireless the wireless receiver just goes into your PC and it just works.
I’ve had no interruptions with the wireless been completely happy with that aspect of these headsets all right guys so let’s talk about one of the most important aspects of any gaming headsets the sound that spatial awareness being able to place enemy footsteps to hear them coming before they even know that they’re coming towards us that’s what we want right we want that 7.1 DTS super surround sound that these offer us the g935s offer us we want it right well guys let me tell you these are.
absolutely doot-doot for a hundred and seventy dollars I want to hear you walking towards me that’s it I want to know what direction you’re coming from I want to know before you even know it before you even turn on your PC I want to know that you’re turning on your PC I want to hear it but no I don’t hear anything it just sounds like I have a regular pair of headphones on now I went into the settings I put it too wide for.

the soundstage I did all these I tried to tinker with the equalizer which is just terrible it just destroys the clarity any clarity that there was in these gaming headsets so I don’t know the Logitech software doesn’t match up with the headphones now I don’t know if the actual technology of the headphones is enough to par I mean they say there are 50-millimeter drivers in here they should be you know packing a punch but I’ve heard better for way cheaper.
you know the hyper clout x2s for instance why not why wouldn’t you just get those over these there’s no reason not to and save yourself a hundred dollars music does sound decent it’s clear there’s the clarity with these headphones but again if you touch that equalizer you’re done for so I think that Logitech needs to go back to the draw.
