Logitech G430 Gaming Headset Review & Audio Test




What do you think about this video?

MortallicA91: Amazing set but I think the Razer's Kraken Pro has almost no noise in the mic.

Lucian: the volume keeps changing.. this headset sucks!

Plain Tzhaar: is it surround sound?

That Guy on The Street: Compatible with a mac? probably not but it would be nice to know.

mroctagona: I would like to know if the voice morphing feature is possible with this headset.

RacerPlanetZX1: Hey guys, if your looking for some better microphone quality on your G430, I'd recommend this. In the Microphone Properties, click on the "Advanced" tab, and under "Default Format", set the quality to "32000 Hz (FM Radio Quality)". You will not notice a substantial quality drop, but you will notice your voice is being picked up louder at lower volumes, and it also has less of that "cutout" issue with the built in noise cancellation feature on the headset's USB adapter. Helps a plenty for distortion on louder volumes prior to this. Ofcourse, if you are not a fan of the noise cancellation at all, you can also plug straight into the soundcard on your computer. The headset does not pick up alot of background noise as it is, so it's a good alternative for those really frustrated by it. Overall, I'd say that in it's price range, the G430 is definitely recommended. The sound is hard to beat, and it really exceeded my expectations. For those curious, the G430 is identical to the G230 asides from the colour, including speakers and microphone. Virtually no difference between the two. It really comes down to whether you prefer the colour, or whether or not you want the Stereo sound or a Virtual 7.1 surround sound.

Javi Moreno: Is it comfortable? I want a really comfortable headset so after 2 hours playing my ears wont be hurt, cause with my other headset that is made with fake leather it hurts a lot after some time playing and its really annoying

zCHiiLLY: I don't have sound coming through my g430's (to hear youtube videos, etc.) any suggestions how I can fix this?

Paul Simpson: Is it good for glasses? And this or Qpad qh-90

Dewoy1: A middle part to control your sound is bad you can accidently turn in super lound and kill your ears with it and you also have 2 extra spots to break your cable with what i like to see is that it doeant have this fake leather crap that love to fall apart at the time so you get all this pesky little pieces in your ear

SarasDVS: Does it work with ps3? 

PeBa279: this or g35 ?

Sloba V: And in europe its 115 dollars unbelivible...

Girre: The mic is pretty good actually, this ruins my plans on getting the AT2020. Heheh. (I know the AT2020 is better but not worth it for me just like Skyping lol.)

DoYouEvenWalrus: if i plug that usb into my ps3 will it work?

JEMustang: mic sounds amazingly good for $80.

TheAuzzieGam3rs: I am hoping to get one of these soon, Mic sounds quite good and it looks sturdy

nexonbubblefighter35: GUYS if you have a problem with sound on YouTube, STOP USING SURROUND SOUND AND USB DONGLE! 

Girre: The USB adapter is a little bit buggy on Mac, and the software isn't for Mac either, but when I am on my PC, it ROCKS!

Emil Fraas: Can you use this headset on xbox 360?

Almighty Sean: Its 50 dollars at Bestbuy. Subscrbe to me for Gaming Videos

MikeRam42: i cant hear youtube videos, or itunes to name a couple? any suggestions? but i do hear skype.

Klaus Langanke: awesome review dude

NavyLax: I see League of Legend :)

Jake Keogh: would you prefer the logitech g430s or razer kraken 7,1

Kwtsos99XD: This or G35? Plz respond :P

Steven Adams: Wow a lot of views dude congrats, I have picked this headset up after doing my 'homework' on the product and can tell you that your reviews are the best as I can always rely on you to give a honest informative review.

Electric Funeral: are this compatible with the PS4? both audio and mic?

pius wirawan: logitech g430 or razer kraken 7.1 ?

TheChaosCamp: Came for the review. Liked for the review and the Lil pickley on your desktop. I love him! Do you really listen to him or were you just trying it out?

minecraftmen2000: Hey will this work on mac without the software

Ludvig Wallman: What software? He mentioned that you have to install a software in order to get the surround sound! Can someone send me the link it the website or just tell me what website I go to? Thx!

colester2472: dude, thanks. i need a mic and u helped alot. the best thing about ur vid is that u went into depth about the usb thing bc no other vid did. thanks

KisekiSaiken: dont buy the g430, its just a way for logitech to scam u with money. Just buy the g230 and then install the Razer Surround sound Software and it works just as good.

Naruske ReaX: Do not buy this headset until they have fixed the microphone. The microphone fades your voice out after a while. And they refuse the acknowledge this!

Dajman1594: If I buy these, should I just use the USB soundcard included or buy a Xonar DGX separately for audio? If I use the Xonar, do I just plug the microphone and headphone cables into the jacks on the front of my case, or directly into the soundcard on the back?

Kevin Hruska: how comfortable do you assume these will be with glasses?

138coollife: is there a way to turn of the mic to headphone thing but still have the mic available for skype and stuff

dkfan241: Would you prefer the logitech g430s or the razer kraken 7.1? I don't know what to choose because my logitech g930s just broke for no reason on the second day of use.

FrootSaladz: Is the microphone quality better on the Plantronics Gamecom 780 or the Logitech G430?

Darius Soto: Great review. Just wondering though, do these headphones come with the sidetone option?

EftelCraft: Where did you buy that headset standard?

behindert12340: Which headset can you recommend for cod

spongebob570: Does it work without sound card

Knife Party Daniel Blagutin: Nice video men! I just want to know, do I need a sound card to have a good sound or just use that usb. Pls answer fast

greekman77777: next time i put on corpse paint im going to try and model it after your face. Damn yo get some sleep and eat more cause u look like a corpse.

robert endsley: how can you give these a positive review at all? mic monitoring.. REALLY? what freaking idiot at logitech thought this was a good idea and no freaking way to disable it? USB or analog, it doesnt matter, i can ALWAYS hear myself in them! taking these pieces of crap back, no wonder they were on clearance for 29.99!

Universo Dei Nabbi: hello I want to know if the microphone can be moved?

Renzo Verhoeve: Can i connect this headset to my Xbox 360 with that USB thing?? Pls respond somebody

THEGHOSTSLAVE: If you don't like the cloth material you can replace them with the leatherette pads for the 930 you can pick up a set for like 15 bucks and they are compatible so they should fit right onto your 430 headset.
