In September, Logitech will be shipping a colorful collection of gaming accessories consisting of some pre-existing products with fresh hues and a brand new product: the G733 Lightspeed gaming headset for $ 129. With the exception of the G915 TKL wireless mechanical keyboard for US $ 229, which is now available in white instead of just black, other accessories – the G203 Lightsync wired gights mouse for US $ 39, the G305 wireless Lightspeed mouse for 59 US dollars and the G733 headset – will be available in four colors: blue, lavender purple, white and black.
Since most of these products have been around for a while, I'll focus on the G733 headset. It's a lightweight, wireless gaming headset that doesn't take itself too seriously. What's impressive is that it has almost the same features as the Logitech Pro X Lightspeed headset for $ 199.99.
A look at the color treatment of the G305 Lightspeed wireless mice.
The G733 is charged via USB-C. Logitech claims up to 29 hours of battery life per charge. Inside the box is a 2.4 GHz Lightspeed USB receiver (the same color as the headset) that makes the headset compatible with PCs and PS4s. The G733 also supports DTS X 2.0 virtual surround sound and has customizable Blue branded microphone settings in Logitech's G Hub software. So it hits a lot of the most important beats for a lower price.
While this headset takes some compromises to get a lower price point than the Pro X Lightspeed, they are tradeoffs that I can definitely live with. At 278 grams, it's lighter, mainly thanks to its all-plastic construction, and comfortable all day thanks to the breathable ear cups and supportive headband, both of which are machine washable. The colorful headband can be swapped for a different look or swapped for a new color purchased through Logitech for $ 9.99 each.
Despite the slightly smaller drivers (40 mm versus 50 mm in the Pro X), the sound performance of the G733 didn't seem noticeably worse to me, although the noise isolation is not as good. The bass isn't that punchy either, but they offer a balanced, powerful sound that doesn't tire me out.
You can buy these cute microphone covers from Logitech. Each pack also includes covers in the shape of lips, a star, a heart and a mustache.
I usually get annoyed with LEDs and weird design in gaming accessories. The easier the better, I say. But I'm amazed at how weird this headset is. I tested the purple purple G733 and the color treatment makes it stand out compared to almost everything else on my desk – except for the eye-catching blue G203 mouse that came with it. The headset has a vertical LED strip on the front of each ear cup. You can adjust the color and lighting effect in the G Hub software or just turn it off if it's a little too much for you.
If you want to spice up your gaming desk and find gear that more suits your style, accessories from Logitech are a great way to do it. I'm excited about the headset, but with the mice, I'll hold my breath and hope for a lavender G502 Lightspeed, my favorite wireless gaming mouse.
