If you read the reviews, you'll glean a lot from their picky nature, i.e. led lights not to their liking (turn them off?), dislike of the g-buttons, legit grievances of microphone quality, criticising Logitech for not having PS4/Vita/Phone drivers(!), one review is of a faulty product, etc. etc.

In other words, best to experience the headset for yourself. It's Amazon, so you're guaranteed to be able to return them if they're not to your liking.

​Yeah you might have done a better job actually reading them, the reviews from review sites and YouTube channels reviewing them all don't have enough nice things to say about them.

How these haven't got hot is beyond my understanding.

Personally I like that they work wirelessly with Xbox one, pc, my mobile phone ect

tomsguide.com/us/…tml look at this review as a for instance.

THE GOOD
Flawless wireless performance
Great sound
Very comfortable
Works on PCs, mobiles and consoles

THE BAD
Too bulky for easy transport

30 heat for a 3rd off and a £51 price reduction? What the actual ****?
Thanks, you've just saved me £50.

I have been researching a headset to buy and had decided on these, the only others that were close were a50s at £250. These get excellent reviews for sound quality, have a replaceable battery and my old g930s were the most comfortable headset i owned. I was about to buy them at £150 when i did a final search on hukd :-)

Needless to say voted hot

I have just run the 7.1 Dolby test and can confirm it works FLAWLESSLY unless you mean on console? in which case that's a console side issue not the headset.

The deal was great, the headset is amazing, the audio sounds incredible (though i'm no expert) the mic is solid, Logitech made alot of great choices, they're comfortable and breathable, not noise cancelling but you can't have it all and i'd say the extra few hours you lose from keeping the lights on the back aren't worth it considering you can't even see it.... this site sucks but i'm happy even if i only helped one or two people, you missed out but maybe these just weren't for you.

They had some issues but for once logitech has come through and updated the firmware to fix them and now i think these are worth every penny.

If you or anyone else still wants them you can get them on amazon warehouse used for £96.77 still and one set for £91.75 and with Amazons return policy you'd get plenty of time to decide if they were for you. Just an idea.

I finally have some time to open mine, so I hope my experience is similar to yours. Being a musician/audio engineer, I'm hoping the quality of these will replace two gaming sets I have. I have heard good things, too. Regardless, I'll be doing a video on them, along with some other headsets in the future. Maybe I'll post it here :P

cool! i'd be interested to know what you think but i expect it depends on how good what you've used before was, i've never had a pair of high end headphones before so obviously i've been blown away by them lol

I've used a myriad of headphones and headsets, so, I am used to a fairly high standard of sound, e.g. Seinnheiser 280 Pros, Beyer Dynamic studio headphones, Denon AHD2000, etc. I've also had my fair share of gaming headsets, as seen here - Gaming Headset Round-Up!

Well, I spent last night checking the G933 headset and, long story short, they're pretty impressive Out of the box, the sound is excellent (no EQ needed!) and it even came with a charge giving me around 5-6 hours run time. So, about 50% charged out of the box. Unfortunately, the mic quality is iffy. That's a real shame, but, I already use a Zoom H4N, so it's not a problem for me. The DTS-X surround seems to be good, but I've only played Rocket League. So, a little more testing with other games is needed

I also used them in a couple of other ways... I used the dongle via a USB battery pack (to power it) and then attached it to a stereo DAC, which I normally use at the PC (Korg DS-DAC-100M). The sound was nicely balanced. A touch sharp for my liking in the hi-end, but not bad). I also did the same USB battery pack idea in the living room with my amplifier. I loaded up some console games, youtube, etc. and it all sounded pretty good.

Overall, they're excellent and I may be selling both of my other headsets and using them wherever I need a good sounding pair of gaming headphones. They can't topple my Denons, but they're not a million miles away!
I've had two of these, the first I returned because of the timeout issue, second because it bricked during the firmware upgrade that fixes the firmware issue...

That said they are alright so long as you are using windows. If you want to pay a little more money for a better product, check out the Steelseries Siberia 800 (also known as Wireless H). It has better battery life (20 hours vs logitechs 12), and it comes with two batteries that are hot swappable along with a battery charging dock, so battery life just isn't an issue. Battery runs out and you just swap it out with the battery that's in the charging dock. Logitech takes a lot of crap for its software/drivers (they are bad), the Siberia 800 has no software and thus will work on anything. It supports optical and USB, along with two 3.5mm jacks (one on the control box, one on the headset) it also has two 3.5mm outputs (again with one on the headset and one on the control box)

The only downside in the Siberia 800 vs the Logitech is that the Siberia 800 doesn't have programmable macro buttons. I guess the Siberia 800 doesn't have LEDs either if you're into that (myself I found the LEDs more of a hindrance). Siberia 800 wins at everything else.

Seriously is nobody reading anything before they comment? All the major issues that have been commented about including yours have been recently fixed, i'm sure your bad experiences and everyone elses were very reliant a month or two ago but I've been using it for days now, updated the firmware to change the time out to up to 30 minutes and it didn't brick at all, i can also confirm the 7.1 works flawlessly as I've stated repeatedly and it was never meant to work in 7.1 on consoles but it works fine on my xbox one when connected to my controller and sounds great when attached to my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.

Seriously.....

First, the timeout issue was fixed in a firmware update. Second, admittedly, I had an issue with the firmware update. It stopped and I found a windows prompt saying to restart, so I did. After this, the headset/dongle wouldn't work. HOWEVER, rather than return it, I did a quick google search and found the answer - Firmware fix

True, it's an issue, but it was easily fixable. Azelphur, it's fine to prefer another headset, but don't put this one down because you had issues with it. This was an excellent deal for a very good gaming headset.

Anyway, I've had the G933 for the last 4 days and even though I'm very picky, the sound is excellent and I've just found a new trick. The included 3.5mm audio cable has 3-rings at each end, which allows both the headphones AND microphone to be used with the Dualshock 4 and Xbox One (3.5mm version) pad! A fantastic find which, along with the included in-line remote, is incredibly useful for console use.

I picked mine up from dabs for £180, so it's about £85 more, to do a quick comparison...

http://i.imgur.com/KpFvKZA.png

I'm not sure how the two compare sound quality wise as I'm no audiophile. I will say that the G933 likes to put itself in some kind of low quality sound profile if you connect it to anything that isn't a windows machine, so if you plan do use the G933 on anything that isn't a Windows machine, avoid it like the plague.

Apart from that it's really down to personal preference, I'm just presenting the options and not really bashing the G933, yes I had a bad experience with it but that's just bad luck. As I said in my original post, the G933 is alright as long as you're using Windows.



Seems like you're accusing me of not reading before commenting, yet you didn't bother to read mine either. I clearly stated that the G933 is fine if you're using Windows, I even mentioned the firmware update in my post. Can only assume you read the first couple of sentences and then jumped to conclusions.

Edit:
Noticed lots of people are talking about transport, the G933 sucks at that, the Siberia 800 doesn't, they are fairly flexible unlike the G933 and I don't see them breaking if you chucked them into a backpack, see photo below of me bending the headset main bar at a 90 degree angle, the main bar is a semi-rigid rubber type material, it won't break if you bend it (or if it gets bent in your backpack) but it holds its shape very nicely.

So basically what your saying is spend almost double the amount on a different gaming headset and it will be better.

*slow claps* Wow you're such a genius! where have you been?! people need to know this amazing advice of spending more money to get higher quality products!!!

lmfao.

Oy vey... I see you've come here to have an argument and spread lies. Hopefully people read reviews as well as these replies and glean the truth from those that own the G933.

1. It does work with consoles. I mentioned this in post #21. Even the Wii U has a 3-ring port on the gamepad which allows for full headphone/microphone use.

2. Referring to your picture... Why would you need to bend headphones that much? They certainly wouldn't bend like that in a rucksack, like you say.

And 3. Who chucks their expensive headphones in a rucksack to move about and get scratched? Not me. I'd keep them in a small carry bag. If you care for headphones, they should never have to be put in such a ridiculous angle. As a fun aside, curiosity got the better of me and I actually did bend them in the same way. They were fine :P If you want a pic, I'll happily post one.

Look, you're clearly in love with your choice of headset and that's fine. But please don't think that gives you carte blanche to come to this thread about another headset and start telling people stories. Especially when you never talk about the G933 in-use. With that said, first, we can all make up our own minds here. And secondly, lies are a step too far.

I have never once mentioned the word console in any of my posts, when I spoke of platforms I was referring to OSX/Linux/... I don't really know much about console stuff, sorry. I suppose I could have been clearer on this but I didn't think of console use when I originally posted.

Of course in day to day activity your headset would never bend that much, the point was to make it clear that they would be perfectly ok to be thrown around a bit, or stored in a backpack, etc.

That's fine - you don't have to throw your expensive headset into a rucksack, it's personal preference. I would probably advise against bending your G933 like that, from what I remember they were hard plastic at the top, which is likely to shatter if you do that.

I'll state again that the G933 is a perfectly good choice of headset (At least, assuming you run Windows), I just figured I'd post about a good alternative if people were looking for something different, there's really no need for the hostility, accusations or rudeness. Steelseries isn't very well known and I didn't know about it when buying my G933, and for me personally, the hot-swappable batteries and cross-platform support (I'm a Linux user) are worth the extra £85.

With that said, first, we can all make up our own minds here. And … With that said, first, we can all make up our own minds here. And secondly, lies are a step too far.


Of course you can, that's why I posted information about the two headsets, stated that both headsets are good and let the people decide, I came to provide what I thought was useful information and nothing more. Can you please point out where in any of my posts I lied?

Edited by: "Azelphur" 13th Apr 2016
If you missed how you lied, let me point it out. You're lying when you say things like, "the G933 likes to put itself in some kind of low quality sound profile if you connect it to anything that isn't a windows machine."

I have no idea what you did to make it sound bad on anything that wasn't a windows machine. I've been using the G933 with my PC (Windows), TV, Xbox One, etc. It sounded perfectly good in all of these situations. If yours sounded like "low quality," I would've suggested you check that out - either through tech support or via the EQ settings you had selected.

And to suggest that you're here to post a "good alternative," is ridiculous. Since the deal is over, the more logical option, would be the G633 which holds the same quality sound and general features, save for the wireless capabilities. I don't think the Steelseries 800 at £180 (a mere £10 less than what I found), would ever be something I'd want to buy. That's very expensive for a simple gaming headset, in my opinion.
A solid recommendation would actually be the Corsair Gaming H2100 Wireless headset. It's incredibly well priced at £70, especially with the wireless capability, a better sounding mic than the G933 and the sound is pretty good once EQ'd. If you need 3.5mm support, I'm sure there are other options available.

I'm happy that you have a headset that you enjoy, but stop trying to make out like you're helping anyone out here. The deal's over, myself and secretspartan1 are giving our thoughts on the G933 and I've been highlighting some tricks I wasn't aware of when reading/watching reviews on the G933. Your "recommendation" is a bit random in this context.

I'm gonna say this one last time as repeating myself over and over is really getting boring. I was talking about other OSes like Linux, OSX (or any other device that supports a USB headset) and not consoles. 3.5mm works the same regardless of what type of device you plug it into - this is obvious and I really shouldn't need to say it.

What you do to make it sound bad on anything apart from a Windows machine, is plug the USB dongle into anything that isn't a Windows machine (ie one running Linux, or OSX), again, the 3.5mm source is not at fault (obviously)

I hope you can understand now given the above information, if you cannot then I really see no point in further replies.

I really don't care if you personally do or do not want a Siberia 800, I just presented something I felt would be useful to people, I purchased the Siberia 800 as an alternative to the G933 and am happy with it, and I'm happy with the fact that I paid a little more for a better product. Other people might feel the same way, which is why I mentioned it.

The H2100 and G633 are also alternatives which have various upsides and downsides. It's all about what your budget is and what features you want. Myself the hot-swappable battery is worth its weight in gold. But again it's all down to personal preference, what's good for you (a G933 with 12 hours of battery life) is not great for me.

You took what was a simple misunderstanding and made it into a long, and ultimately pointless back and fourth along with a tirade of insults, I'll say again that it really isn't warranted.

I'm gonna say this one last time as repeating myself over and over is … I'm gonna say this one last time as repeating myself over and over is really getting boring. I was talking about other OSes like Linux, OSX (or any other device that supports a USB headset) and not consoles. 3.5mm works the same regardless of what type of device you plug it into - this is obvious and I really shouldn't need to say it.What you do to make it sound bad on anything apart from a Windows machine, is plug the USB dongle into anything that isn't a Windows machine (ie one running Linux, or OSX), again, the 3.5mm source is not at fault (obviously)I hope you can understand now given the above information, if you cannot then I really see no point in further replies.I really don't care if you personally do or do not want a Siberia 800, I just presented something I felt would be useful to people, I purchased the Siberia 800 as an alternative to the G933 and am happy with it, and I'm happy with the fact that I paid a little more for a better product.

Fine, you win. Happy? Now leave the G933 discussion to people who are using it and those that are interested in it.

P.s. I'll be trying the G933 in my brother's Mac and will report back if you're telling the truth. However, after some quick googling, something tells me you're lying about the sound quality changing on other OS'...again.

EDIT: Just realised something - what do you mean when you say 3.5mm? Which one? There are two.

@Azelphur Stop replying to them. They're both coming across as childish idiots throwing their dolls out the pram.

Probably the reason it went cold is because the op told everyone to get lost and whined that his precious deal wasn't getting the heat it deserved.

Admittedly it didn't. Hot deal for sure, but what a strange pair.

Hey, I just don't like liars. I think it's best to give people the truth.
