I am not a huge fan of wireless headsets until Logitech passed me their G933 Artemis Spectrum Gaming Headset during their Pizza session held at Colosseum at Bugis+, Singapore. Wireless PC peripherals are often overlooked by gamers no thanks to naysayers. But when it comes to setting up a gaming station at a LAN party, one less wire goes a long way. Since I game on a netbook on the go, that’s one less wired inconvenience for me.
The G933 improves on the successful G430 Gaming Headset with its minimalist design and stylish sleek curves making it a trendy headset for the fashionable geek on the go. It features 7.1 Dolby Surround Sound, washable ear cups and concealable mic that makes the G933. Its ten-hour inbuilt battery completes the headset as a portable fashion accessory as well as an extension to a gamer’s unfair advantage on the virtual battlefield.
The distinct advantage wireless headsets have over its analog counterparts is the missing audio input which has been problematic for most of my headsets. Going wireless allows Logitech to address the problem that plagued many traditional wired sets without redesigning and/or reinventing the very product audiophiles and gamers are familiar with. Now, you won’t have that pesky problem where one side of the earpiece will malfunction after some months and the temporary solution is to toy around with the audio jack or the wire leading up to the headphones itself; and pray that it works. There’s still the option to wire up the headphones using the USB adapter or analog audio input, which means wires. But with such convenience and performance, I’ll rather leave them in the box. The G933 Artemis Spectrum Gaming Headset is definitely one of the best premium wireless headsets on the market.
The Logitech G933 also works with PCs, mobile phones, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The headphones are also compatible to your home theater, as long as they have USB ports and RCA audio out.
The product is available from December 2015 at the MSRP of SGD 299.
