Logitech’s new is wired, however it’s anything other than basic. G433 is a gaming headset that’s wired. G433 is a headset for $100 that can be used with any gaming or audio device that has the 3.5mm port. It’s a good quality product, but it’s not like it’s counterpart, the which is our Editors Choice.
Logitech g433 Design
When compared to the previous G-series Logitech gaming headsets, the G433 appears rather subdued. It is available in black, red, blue, and camouflage blue. Even the campo model isn’t as striking and gaming-themed in comparison to that of the . The ear cups feature an exterior that resembles a cloth to match the grille fabric in front of every 40mm driver. The right ear cup has 3.5mm connections to each audio cord as well as the boom Mac that can be removed with a rubber arm that snaps to lock
The headband is colored that matches the ear (plain blue on the models that has come) It is equipped with hinges to make the ear cups lie in an upright place. The padding under the headband is very thin and covered in mesh material. This is the same material that covers the ears. They also feel light. Ears can be switched to pads lined with a suede-like fabric included in headphones. I discovered the ear pads made from suede more comfortable and better at blocking background noise more effectively than mesh, but neither felt like a comfortable material for the head. The ear pads are thin and the padding of the headband could make me uncomfortable during the long listening time..
Logitech headset Accessories
The G433 comes with plenty of accessories. It includes the two pairs of ear pads as well as a detachable boom microphone, as well as 2 cables and a cloth carry bag and an 7.1-channel USB sound card. The PC cable measures 6.5 feet long, and is wrapped in cloth. It also has an inline remote that has the ability to adjust volume and mutes. The cable is terminated in the rare five-pole 3.5mm connector specifically designed for use with the USB audio card. You should not expect it to function well when connected to your gaming device or mobile system of your choice. In order to use it, you’ll require a shorter five-foot cable that is also included. The cable that is mobile-friendly is made of rubber, and has an inline Mac and one play/pause button. We would like to see it include an enveloping cloth with volume controls.
The soft, zippered pouch holds the headset comfortably with the ear cups flattened. The case also holds the cables and extra ear pads. However, unless you have a method of keeping the cables neatly looped (we recommend hook & loop strips), you risk creating a tangle every time you take your headset out.
The G433 is quite powerful for Tekken 7. Although the fighting effects and character dialogue are clear and crisp, the electronic beats and bass-heavy music come across a little timidity. Although the music is balanced, the dub step-like, ultra-low-frequency thumps are not as oppressive as the Astor Gaming A10 at high volumes.
sounds dynamic and powerful, thanks to Mick Gordon’s beat and the loud audio effects. Although the low-frequency bass sounds don’t have the same impact as the A10, the explosions and gunshots pack a powerful punch.
G433’s included 7.1-channel USB soundcard lets it simulate surround sound by audio processing and mixing between its stereo drivers. Although the effect is subtle in Doom I was able to sense directional panning as enemies attacked from different directions. The effect works only for directional sound across the left, right and center. It doesn’t give the illusion of surround sound being behind or in front of you, as a dedicated surround sound system does. This is a nice addition, especially for first-person gaming, but it’s not essential.
The G433 handled our bass test track, The Knife’s “Silent Shout”, without any distortion at all even at maximum volume. Although the kick drum and synch bases have a lot of force, they don’t get subwoofer-level ultra low-frequency rumble.
The mix is full and rich with Cheese’s voice and the upright bases. However, the piano notes lack the sharp treble edge that makes them stand out against the lower frequencies. The finger snaps in this opening also lack the texture that allows them to sound more than percussion hits. Although it doesn’t sound too muddy, it’s not as clear as it should.
Logitech G433 wired gaming headset is very versatile and comes with tons of accessories. A carrying case, two sets of headphones, two cables and a USB soundcard enabling simulated surround make this a great deal at $100. The sound quality is good but not great. Although the G433 package is attractive considering all it includes, wired gaming audio is better than the Astor Gaming A10. It comes with no extras, offers superior audio performance, and is more comfortable at half the price.
