The Logitech G935 is the company's top-of-the-line wireless gaming headset, with features like programmable colourful illumination, customisable function buttons for toggling between sound settings, and a highly comfortable fit. It also costs significantly less than comparable high-end wireless headphones like the Astro Gaming A50 and the Steelseries Arctis Pro Wireless, at $179.99. While it looks and feels nice, the G935's sound quality falls well short of the more costly headsets, as well as a few less priced choices.

Logitech G935 Wireless Gaming Headset


The G935 has the appearance and feel of a higher-end version of Logitech's existing G series headsets, such as the corded G423. It has the same massive black trapezoidal earcup design as the original, but it's more luxuriously constructed, with big faux-leather-wrapped earpads and a thicker plastic outer shell. The earcups are attached to a robust metal headband with a black plastic shell across the top that features a large strip of memory foam cushioning that is also pleather-covered. The upshot is a hefty headset that, at 13.3 ounces, is substantially heavier than the wired G423, but far more comfortable owing to the generous cushioning.

The G935's LightSync function is indicated by a transparent plastic G logo on the rear and piping on the sides of each earcup. When the headset is turned on, multicoloured LEDs behind the translucent material shine blue by default or a range of colours and patterns when customised using the Logitech G Hub software for Windows or Mac.

The left earcup has all controls, connectors, and the boom mic. When not in use, the microphone is a little black capsule on a short, flexible metal arm that retracts into a plastic shell and flips up into the side of the earcup, flush with the rest of the plastic. A power switch, volume dial, mic mute button, and three configurable G buttons are located on the rear edge of the earcup. The G buttons, which by default control surround sound, light mode, and equalisation presets, may be configured with other purposes through the G Hub software. When the headset is linked to a Mac or PC, both custom G button functionality and lights operate; when used with a console, it works by default.

The Logitech G935 has a micro USB charging port and a 3.5mm headset connection on the bottom edge of the left earcup, allowing you to charge it or use it as a passive headset with the provided USB and 3.5mm cords. The rear panel of each earcup also detaches to show the LED modules and two compartments hidden behind the G logos. When not in use, the USB transmitter is kept in the compartment on the left earcup, and the headset's battery is kept in the compartment on the right.


Using the wireless USB adaptor, the G935 may be used with PCs, Macs, PlayStation 4, and even the Nintendo Switch as a wireless gaming headset. The headset may be used passively with any device that has a 3.5mm headphone or headset connector, such as the Xbox One or the Nintendo Switch in portable mode, thanks to the 3.5mm audio connection (which loses access to the USB ports on the dock). To alter settings like coloured illumination and button assignments, you'll need to utilise the Logitech G Hub programme on your Mac or PC.


The microphone on the Logitech G935 is quite clean, however it might have used a pop filter over the capsule. The test recordings of my voice were mainly clear, although there was some slight background hiss from my breathing, and altering the capsule's location is a little cumbersome due to the boom's short, telescoping arm. It sounds okay for voice chat and calls, but if you want to record podcasts or stream live, a more costly wired headset with a better microphone, such as the HyperX Cloud Mix or the Turtle Beach Elite Pro 2, is a better option. You might also want to consider investing in a USB microphone.

Performance of Music

The Logiech G935's sound characteristic is shockingly bass-heavy for a gaming headset. This implies a robust feeling of low-frequency response that doesn't distort even at maximum volume for our bass test track, The Knife's "Silent Shout." It won't make you shake your head or make you think you're listening to a sound system with a subwoofer, but bass drum beats and synth notes will have enough of presence.

Gaming Capabilities

I used the Logitech G935 to play Apex Legends, which took use of its powerful bass. Fighting noises are loud and forceful, and the game's simulated surround mixing makes it simple to tell which way they're coming from. Despite the headset's lack of treble delicacy, more subtle sound effects like footfall come across well. It's a thrilling sound that emphasises the game's action.

On the Logitech G935, Overwatch on the PC sounds great. The game's broad, dramatic music isn't particularly memorable, but the sounds of weapons and explosions carry a significant punch, giving the action a visceral quality. The simulated surround effect suffers from the lack of treble presence, with Overwatch's more delicate sound effects having no directional feel. It sounds sufficiently full, but lacks the power and clarity to wow.

Competent but uninspiring

The Logitech G935 Wireless Gaming Headset is sandwiched between more costly high-end wireless headsets such as the Astro Gaming A50 and the Steelseries Arctis Pro Wireless and more inexpensive wireless headsets such as the PDP LVL50 Wireless and the Astro Gaming A20. It's quite durable and comfy, and it has some great features like customizable lighting, but the sound quality isn't high enough to warrant the $180 price tag, especially since the PDP LVL50 offers equivalent audio performance for only $70. Consider the Steelseries Arctis Pro Wireless or the Astro A50 if you want top-of-the-line performance and build quality. The PDP or Astro A20 are far better values if you only want a wireless headset that works with your PC or game console of choice.
