Features

2.4GHz Wireless

G933s gives you the best of both worlds, with the option to game wirelessly or wired. Play on 2.4 GHz wireless for up to 12 hours per charge without lighting or 8 hours with default lighting.3May vary based on user and computing conditions. 12 hours battery life is based on no LED lighting and headset volume set to 50%. Alternatively, the 3.5 mm analog input gives you the freedom to play wired—on console, mobile or PC—without using battery power.

Play the Unheard

Upgraded Pro-G 50 mm drivers are constructed with a proprietary woven hybrid mesh that unlocks greater sonic detail, depth, and clarity at any volume. Now, with the increased diameter, Pro-G performs better than ever. Low frequency sounds—like booming explosions and rich soundtracks—are even more full and cinematic. High frequencies—voices, footsteps, shots fired—are incredibly clean and precisely recreated. Hear more of your game than ever. Play the unheard with Pro-G 50.

Surround Beyond 7.1

Some Xbox One controllers may require an Xbox adapter, sold separately. Mac, PS4, Xbox One, Switch and Mobile: stereo mode only.

Be Heard Loud and Clear

Mic+ 6 mm is a boom mic enhanced for amazingly clear and precise comms. The boom has an indicator LED so you know when your mic is muted. When not in use, the boom mic can be folded back into the headphones making it nearly invisible.

Built For Comfort and Endurance

You’ll be extremely comfortable, even during the longest gaming sessions with deluxe leatherette padding in the ear cups and headband. G933s is fitted with large-diameter circumaural ear pads which fit completely around the ears and put no direct pressure on soft tissues and provide passive noise isolation. The ear cups are removable for cleaning.

The Box and Packaging

 

The Headset

The headset is quite large but surprisingly light-weight. The large over-ear cups with deluxe leatherette padding is extremely comfortable and quite breathable … in other words, my ears didn’t sweat after several hours of prolong usage.

The head band also feature what appears to be memory foam and this adds to the overall comfort .

 

A Closer Look

On the left ear driver, you’ll find the majority of the controls. These include the on/off switch, 3 programmable profile buttons (G1,G2,G3), mic on/off, and volume control. 

There’s also the foldable microphone with a retractable extension, a micro USB charging port and a 3.5mm headphone audio jack.

One thing I didn’t quite like is the location of rechargeable battery which is hidden by a plastic cover (photo 5 – bottom left). It appears to be replaceable and located on the right ear driver. Any parts which are not integrated will also get lost of misplaced.

 

Logitech G Hub Software

The Logitech G Hub software is easy to use and allows users to configure various settings including RGB lighting, various programmable profiles, surround sound and equalizer levels. You can download the Logitech G Hub software from their website.

Conclusion and Verdict

The audio quality produced by the Logitech G G933s is pretty good. This is all thanks to the large 50 mm Pro-G audio drivers and the support for DTS surround sound, giving you a detailed and immersive experience. The highs are crisp and clear, and the mid-range is wholesome and full, while the bass is nice and deep.  

For wireless operation, it has a range of around 15m … I tested it while I was in the bathroom listening to Spotify as you do. The PC is located in my room, while the bathroom is actually located downstairs. It’s a good 10-15m distance apart.

When it comes to comfort, the Logitech G G933s proved to be much better than I expected. It comes with some nice large over-ear earcups, with deluxe leatherette padding. The base of the headband also features what appears to be memory foam, which adds extra comfort. 

According to Logitech, battery life is around 12 hours (no lighting) and 8 hours (with default lighting) … but it’s more like 10 and 6 hours respectively. Still, it’s more I expected and it’s enough for a good night’s worth of gaming.

The Logitech G G933s is compatible with Mac, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, mobile smartphone and of course Windows PC, which great. And if you ever need to 3.5mm connection, the package comes with a 1.5m cable included.
