Logitech G Introduces New Gaming Headphones.

Logitech G is launching two new gaming headphones: the G633 and G933 Artemis Spectrum. For five years, Logitech’s top tier gaming headset was the G930, a $159.99 wireless headset that came with Dolby 7.1 surround sound and three programmable keys and boasted a battery life of 10 hours. They are the result of Logitech’s sound engineering team’s attempt to create a gaming headset that delivers audio comparable to top-shelf headphones. The 2.4GHz wireless G933 ‘Artemis Spectrum’ shares its name with the also-new G633, which drops the wireless connectivity for a pair of wired options: both USB and 3.5mm are supported. However, the company believes that the G930 is near the end of its reign and introduced not one, but two new potential heirs to the throne, the G933 and G633 Artemis Spectrum headsets.

That choice of connectivity options is representative of Logitech’s approach with the Artemis Spectrum, which it’s been working on for the past two years. I’m a gamer and a musician, so I was really excited when the team came back with a design that delivered.” The headphones are fully customizable, feature RGB lighting, swappable backlit speaker plates and programmable G-keys. Users have been complaining as of late about a lack of fresh products on the scene, even though those previous products have adequately filled their niche. Logitech engineered a new audio driver, revamped its ear cushions and material design, and reworked its microphone with an ambitious goal: do everything well. The G933 mainly uses a 2.4 GHz wireless connection in conjunction with a USB dongle, but you can also connect a 3.5mm cable and a micro USB cable to have three different audio inputs at the same time.

The patent pending advanced Pro-G™ audio drivers are made with hybrid mesh materials that provide the audiophile-like performance gaming fans demand. The G933’s USB wireless receiver can accept analog inputs from up to two different devices, meaning you could have TV, phone, and PC audio all pumping into your headset simultaneously (this will probably give you a headache). From your favorite music to expansive game soundtracks, the Pro-G drivers deliver both clean and accurate highs as well as a deep rich bass that you would expect from premium headphones. The headset also features RGB lighting, controllable via Logitech’s software, a number of programmable keys on the headset, and a foldaway boom microphone (with an LED to indicate when it’s muted) that slots nicely into the earcup.

At first glance, the headsets don’t appear to include a microphone, but it’s indeed there, conveniently folded away at the front of the left earcup. Logitech invited a group of journalists to its audio headquarters in Camas, Washington to see the design work and testing that went into Artemis Spectrum, but their main goal was to showcase just how good the headphones sound. DTS Headphone:X technology utilizes calibration and processing that brings gamers and audio fans closer to the studio experience than ever before, supporting up to 7.1 channels of audio and multiple options for personalization.

Logitech is hoping to escape the gaming headset sound quality stigma, and in a side-by-side listening test with the Sennheiser HD 650s (which cost $400+), the Artemis G933 stacked up shockingly well. Logitech continually refines its gaming software and this provides a great amount of flexibility when it comes to usage scenarios and audio features for these headphones. The Dolby surround sound system is still around, but this time Logitech also found a new partner in DTS and offers its DTS Headphone: X surround sound, which alleges to deliver a more immersive experience due to better calibration and sound processing from the system’s algorithms. The engineers worked with materials people to develop the technology that is said to provide audiophile quality sound across a variety of applications. Obviously, the headsets will sync with the keyboard and mouse if you want to have all three devices simultaneously display the same colored patterns, which is similar to what Razer’s Synapse and Corsair’s Link software offer.

Additionally, the Logitech G933 works with your home theater (via a USB port and RCA audio out) to provide the perfect wireless home theater experience, so you can listen in your living room to all media connected to your home receiver or TV. The 50 mm prototypes just did not have the high end performance of the 40 mm units, so it was decided to sacrifice a bit of the low end to keep things more balanced and brighter. The company also noted that the first batch of G633 headsets will have a rubber micro-USB cord, but following shipments will replace that material with a braided cable. Ryan was shown around 30 different ear “models” that were used to measure how sound was reflected, refracted, and tone shifted when audio was played around these models in multiple positions. Over 30 years ago Logitech started connecting people through computers, and now it’s designing products that bring people together through music, gaming, video and computing.

Logitech has taken this data and created a software solution that more accurately provides this effect than their previous G35 and higher headphones which features the 7.1 functionality. Founded in 1981, Logitech International is a Swiss public company listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange (LOGN) and on the Nasdaq Global Select Market (LOGI).

It will not match more professional units, but we can only hope that it is superior to the previous generation of headphones that Logitech has put out. One positive of this design is that the LED lights are facing to the rear of the listener’s head, so potential reflections off of a screen (or glasses) will just not happen. Not like I have ever done that before trying to mute some headphones… These headphones also have a unique feature in that they can dynamically mix multiple inputs. This is slightly more interesting for the wireless G933 as more devices can be connected, and the user can be free of a plethora of cables attached to the base unit.
