Back in 2020, during my search for a better headset for gaming online, editing videos, and general enjoyment, I was recommended the Logitech G Pro headset. I personally enjoy Logitech products and am typing this using Logitech G413 SE.
Needless to say, I’ve been using the Logitech G Pro up until I was given the opportunity to review their successor, the Logitech G Pro X 2 Lightspeed. I jumped at the opportunity and have had the set for a week now. The Pro X 2 is fully compatible with PC, Playstation, and even the Nintendo Switch via wireless stereo. It has lived up to my expectation and I want to share my experience with you all.
Unboxing The Pro X 2
Unboxing the headphones came with such ease, and let me tell you, they fit a lot in here. The sleek black design snuggly fits the headphones. The headset itself was encased in a protective case you would find in a designer sunglasses case. And the cables and spare bag come neatly packed inside the cardboard mould holding the headset.
Included in the set you can find:
- The Logitech G Pro X 2 Lightspeed Gaming Headset
- Memory Foam Ear Pads
- USB-A Lightspeed Wireless Adapter
- Detachable Mic with Foam Windscreen
- USB-A to USB-B Cable
- High-Quality Self-Storage Case
Logitech really took a step forward in designing perhaps one of the most comfortable headsets for gaming I have used thus far. Additionally, the sleek design with aluminium forks gives more than just an aesthetic boost.
Being able to swivel the headset and adjust for glasses or comfortably rest them on your neck is something so many other designs lack. The external headphones come in hard plastic with aluminium pads covering the Pro G Graphene audio drivers.
The steel band gives a sturdy feel to the headset and the head and ear pads are made of a memory foam leatherette. The foam padding helps seal in the sound, and should it get too sweaty, the Logitech G Pro X 2 comes with light foam ear covers to allow for airflow. The aluminium swivels are a wonderful addition. The swivels are durable and allow for maximum adjustment to fit all head shapes.
Often these gaming headsets are rendered uncomfortable by my glasses, this however could not be further from the truth for the Logitech G Pro X 2 headset. Putting these on for the first time and I immediately felt the difference from the previous entry into the Pro series.
This headset was light enough that after switching to the non-leatherette ear pads, I brought these to the gym and could work out with ease. While I do not advise using this long-term for outdoor activities as it’s not their intended design, I appreciate that the new Bluetooth functionality allowed me to do so.
One of the most impressive features of the Logitech G Pro X 2 is the near instantaneous connection when turned on. The Light Speed Pro X 2 dongle really is as its name implies. The dongle also allows you to pipe audio in with an audio jack on the reverse of the USB plug. Allowing you to easily pipe in two different audio sources at the same time.
The headset comes with a sound wheel that adjusts volume gradually and instantaneously. While you can’t connect via Bluetooth and lightspeed simultaneously, you can press the button to swap instantaneously. The headset also comes with an attachable microphone with a muffler. The microphone has excellent noise suppression to cancel out background sounds.
The one gripe people may have with this headset is that while the included microphone is good, it’s just that. The sound quality is good enough for gaming online or speaking in online meetings. For people aspiring to use get a microphone for content creation and recording high-quality audio, the included headphone just isn’t it.
Luckily, Logitech does have an alternate line of microphones fully compatible with the Pro X 2. This really is only needed if you’re looking for the absolute crispest recordings, and for the average user, the included mic is perfect.
The biggest selling point of the Logitech G Pro X 2 series is the Graphene Audio Driver utilized in the headset. The lightweight driver allows for high-quality sound in the lightest wireless gaming headset I’ve experienced yet.
While the full technical explanations elude me, I can say without a shred of a doubt that the Pro X 2 is now my preferred headset for gaming. This is in no doubt due to the graphene audio drivers fully utilized in the headset, said to “deliver high fidelity sound with extremely low distortion” and to make the headset “incredibly rigid and…impossibly lightweight”.
The crisp audio quality, the perfectly executed surround sound, and the lack of static in the highs and rumbling in the low base notes make for a wonderful experience. Playing games like Elden Ring or Baldur’s Gate, the narrator and NPC voices sound as if they’re coming from right beside you.
Knocking and other background noises in recorded videos sometimes sound like they are coming from your own home. The smooth volume wheel adjusts instantaneously. Moving forward, I believe this is the gaming headset I’ll be using in my own personal life for the foreseeable future.
The Logitech G Pro X 2 Lightspeed headset is a wonderful addition to any gaming setup. Its lightweight comfortable design makes it feel like you’re not even wearing them. Given the relative price increase over the first Pro X headset, I would say the quality increase is absolutely worth the slightly higher price tag.
For those who aren’t fond of the white aesthetic, it does also come in black. While the microphone is lacking in quality for content creation, it is above and beyond what is needed for general gaming in online meetings. The versatility of the headset makes the Logitech Pro X 2 a worthwhile purchase for any setup.
A special thanks to Logitech for providing us with the headset and making this review possible.
