Logitech G430 Gaming Headset Review & Audio Test




What do you think about this video?

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.

JassenBowGaming: What are your microphone settings? I've tried everything and the mic just sounds like crap, nothing like yours. Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.

Michel Bernardo: Olá comprei o fone mais eu não acho o software dele no site. Precisa de software? Pode me enviar o link

HDGamer1081: Sounds great! im picking this up next week or so :)

Christoph Schneider: The Headset is not so good you might think, i have it and i think its the worst Headset i've ever had.. The Mic is terrible bad and really quiet or soft or what you call this.. The Speaker too.. Don't buy this Headset, its terrible.. And yes, i tried everything to make it sound better, but it did not work.

Phiuk: This one or razer kraken 7.1? I want to use this or the kraken headset with my ps3 and ps4, which one is better or are they the same?

Jørgen Bratli: I suppose this also falls apart after a year, like the G35? Not to bash the G35 or something, the sound quality was great, it was very comfortable, the mic was great (People I skyped with told me that) But the whole thing was made out of plastic, so no wonder why the crap had to fall apart after under a year off use... 

rokpoperis: Logitech G430 or Steelseriess 5H V3? Which mic is better?

David Perez: Anyone know where I can download the software for windows 8.1??? I can't download The windows 8 software

Secondly, I'd like to know, wich one is the best one, and what should I buy between logitech g430, razer kraken 7.1 and hyperx cloud? I'd like to buy a headphone with great sound and mic quality and that my ear stay inside the headphone.... cause sometimes I play for hours.. sorry for the long text.

Iori1Yagami1: G430 or Kraken pro or PC363D ?

Nils Wanelof: where do you download the software?

KingDennisJensen: The USB connecter that comes with it doesn't seem to work. Anyone have this problem?

Ngurah Ary Aviantara: this or hyperx cloud? 

Adam Diddly Doo: Avoid Them, Poor Quality microphone, randomly stutters well talking, the mic volume increases and decreases randomly, buzzing/hizzing and bad Static, Bad support/software to sort these issue's even with my Asus Xonar DG they're poor. (very low volume) even with my mic volume all the way up and can't use Mic boost due to the Static.

Stacie Winters: How do I do a sound test to see how well the mic works? I am really new to using these headsets and I just got this Logitech G430.

sillykatz11231: Razer Kraken Pro This Or steelseries Siberia v2?

SarasDVS: Does it work with ps3? 

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

OracMC08: Does this work with xbox 360? Or xbox one? Because I need a headset like this but that works with xbox

RyzehEdits: so false -_-

Bryan Garcia: Hello, great review, I'm new to this and would like to know if I need to use the USB cable to get the 7.1 Surround Sound? Again, great review, THANKS!

Santeri Tirronen: Logitech g430 or Razer Kraken Pro? 

GamingKaasTostiNL: Does this also work on a console? The surround sound, not the mic but the surround sound.

Delish HotSky: Does the cloth block the exterior sound? for example a car passing, someone in my room or something like that?

GuitarProfile: My mic doesn't sound as good as yours does. Just got the headset yesterday and everything is great just the mic. My mates say it sounds very tinny. I haven't made any changes. Someone knows if there are any settings to change this?

Lol_LightRider: i dont know if anyone has had this problem but u am having a problem with my mic where my voice will cut in and out, idk if there is a solution to this, the main reason i got this headset is because it was usb because i cant plug things into my speaker jack as it gives off a loud statick,any help is much appreciated
