Review: Logitech G733 Lightspeed Wireless RGB Gaming Headset

0

Wearing a good headset can make a huge difference to your gaming experience. Of course, investing in a headset with crisp, clear sound and all the right features is important, but wouldn’t it be nice if it looked cool and let you show off your personality a little too? Enter Logitech’s newest addition to its gaming peripherals lineup — the Logitech G733 Lightspeed.

This wireless RGB headset looks fantastic, and the design is sleek and futuristic. What’s more, it’s available in a range of colour options including white, black, blue, and lilac. Adding to the super fun colour options is a customisable suspension headband.

The colourful headstrap is adjustable, removable, reversible, and interchangeable; allowing you to adjust its position for a better fit and switch it out for another colour to add a touch of customisation to your headset. The headbands are available to buy separately in five different colours including black, lime, purple, mint, and orange. If you love to personalise your gaming gear, then these will be right up your alley. Of course, the headband doesn’t just look cool, it also provides a good amount of cushioning to allow for extended use with no fatigue.

What’s more, the headset also offers you a chance to express yourself with a bunch of different RGB lighting options. The RBG LEDs are located on the front of the headset and are fully customisable, with two lighting zones. The headset’s software gives you loads of options to customise the RBG lighting strips.

Of course, comfort is the most important thing in any gaming headset and the Logitech G733 headset is extremely comfortable. It’s lightweight (weighing just 278 grams) and the headband suspension system works well to give you a good, snug and comfortable fit without squeezing your head. The ear cups slide up and down to accommodate different head sizes and ensure your headset is sitting just right.

The standout comfort feature for me in the G733 is the fabric ear cushions. The ear cushions have dual-layer memory foam padding that conforms to your head, and they fit over your ears, not on your ears, so they feel beyond soft and comfortable even after hours of wear.

Looking at battery life, you’ll get about 28 hours on a single charge with the LED lights turned off, and about 20 hours with the LEDs turned on. The headset ships with a reversible soft headband (attached), detachable microphone, a Lightspeed wireless receiver (USB-A), and a USB-C to USB-A charging cable for easy charging on the go. In terms of controls on the headset, there’s an on/off button, a volume wheel, and a mic mute button. The mic mute button can also be reassigned to do a wide variety of other functions.

The headset comes with a detachable mic that also offers a few customisable features. The range features a bunch of playful mic covers that can be purchased separately, but the real fun is in the software that includes a plugin that allows you to tinker with a variety of EQ presets for the mic and to give you better customisable options.

Speaking of sound, the sound on this headset is impressive for its price. You get a well-balanced, crisp and clear sound that truly enhances your gaming experience. The headset boasts Pro-G drivers and 7.1 surround sound, making them brilliant for first-person shooter or action games, and you can EQ them in the software to your liking.

The G733 headset is compatible with PCs with Windows 7 or later, macOS X 10.12 or later, or PlayStation 4 gaming consoles. Advanced features like DTS Headphone: X 2.0, Blue Voice, and Lightsync RGB are not available on PlayStation 4.

Should you buy the Logitech G733 Lightspeed?

I mostly dabble in management games with a few platformers thrown into the mix, so this headset is more than ideal for me to hear what’s going on around my virtual worlds in glorious and detailed stereo sound. I’d highly recommend them for newbie gamers or anyone who wants a really good-quality gaming headset at a reasonable price. They feel great, are built well, feel very comfortable, and let you display your individual expression without compromising on technology.

Coming in at a recommended retail price of R2,999, the Logitech G733 Lightspeed is reasonably priced for a wireless headset of this spec, and you won’t be disappointed if you do decide to splash out on these to improve your at-home gaming set-up.
