Logitech G430 Gaming Headset Review & Audio Test




What do you think about this video?

JEMustang: mic sounds amazingly good for $80.

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

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

2bdkid100: On my G430 there is a ton of static coming from the mic, how come yours has none?

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

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

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

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

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.

xDeschain x: awesome review dude

NavyLax: I see League of Legend :)

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.

HAMGamers;: Lol 4:00 he put the jacks in the wrong one

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

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

michelle f: Can this headset be used for ps3?

KlixPlays: I seem to get more static sounds than you do, any idea why? 

Jett Chong: this headset has surround sound so it must be comes out with more then 2 3.5mm jacks, but there's only 2 which is audio out and mic in, is the USB is actually a sound card ??

can öztürk: can you put the USB into the ps3 ?

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

Michael Blah: I really like this headset! Here's another good one and it's wireless, just £17..... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/181298543502?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 

BrianKabella: My mic is doing some weird thing. I have the G430's. Whenever I talk into the mic, one moment I sound fine and then when I say a certain letter it's either hard to hear or I get cut off. Any help?

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

Titus T: Hey, can I use this headset on my macbook pro?

Wojtascythe: Hey guys! I've just bought G430 and I want to use them fo lets play. I'm using Mirillis Action but when I've started to use logitech g430 with action, I found out that audio in my records is very silence. Both, my voice and game audio is low and I can't change that by settings in action or in windows. Could You know what is a problem? Sorry for my english and thank You for help ;)

StrikeX7: the g430 squish your head after some hours of use ?

Stone PVP: Saving money for the headset need $10! So close! Should have it buy Friday!

pius wirawan: logitech g430 or razer kraken 7.1 ?

Kyle Mundell: My logitech software can't find my g430. any ideas?

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?

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!

Joao Pedro: Turle Beach Ear Force Z22 or Logitech g430?

Bernd Haaijer: Are you having any problems with the headset playing what you say through the headset? Like when you say "Hey it's Profen", you hear "Hey it's Profen" out of your headphones, like you'd be watching a video. Friend of mine is running with a G35 and he can turn "voice preview" off, same thing for a G430?

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

De4dSp0t: there is no 7.1 surround, it's fake basically. it's not actually 7.1. it's just simulated, so there's no point in wasting you money on this headset just to get a usb for 7.1 surround that isn't actually real. just buy stereo headset and use sound card settings. or if you really believe 7.1 virtual surround is better, buy stereo headset (cheaper and no difference in headsets) and buy a decent usb 7.1 virtual surround. it's cheaper and you'll get more out of your money. don't buy into these 7.1 headsets. there is no headphones that actually have 7.1. the only way to get true 7.1 is to go 7.1 with speakers. so there G430s are a waste of money unless your buying souly for color. otherwise go with the g230 (which have better features like auto-mute when you put mic up) the are the exact same headset, the only difference is your over paying for a fake 7.1 surround.

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.

David Leiroz: hi there, which i should buy ? steelseries siberia v2 or logitech g430??

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

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

EftelCraft: Where did you buy that headset standard?

Lisa G: I recently bought these, and have noticed that the max volume is relatively low (I've maxed out the volume through the windows audio manager as well as the logitech software, to no avail). Using iTunes is OK because you can bump up the preamp on the equalizer, but listening to music on youtube (for example) is frustrating because you just can't get it loud enough. Suggestions are welcome, as I like everything else about these headphones and don't really want to return them.

spongebob570: Does it work without sound card

obad dubojevic: Since I see that you did rewiew with razer kraken pro and G430 what do you think which are better for fps games?thx

iamainnocentkid: Hi, nice review buddy. I got these for myself today. Can you tell me what eq and bas/treble settings you are using and which seems to be perfect for gaming? Help would be appreciated as i have no idea about such stuff.

PhantomicLP: Is the microphone of the G330 betzer than the one of the G430?

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

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.

Holiday: We don\t make alot, but our group do get to travel frequently. Just this year we went to Bangkok to get pictures and their holiday schedules. We are still in a growing phrase so best we can aim for is break even. I think everyone have to overcome the same type of challenge when starting something new. Don\t give up!
