Logitech G Introduces New Gaming Headphones

Logitech, a leading innovator of gaming products, today introduced two new gaming headphones, the Logitech G933 Artemis Spectrum Wireless Gaming Headset and the Logitech G633 Artemis Spectrum Gaming Headset. Featuring patent pending Pro-G audio drivers, the new headphones were designed by Logitech's sound engineering team, with more than 25 years in audio development. The result is gaming headphones that deliver a superior all-around audio experience.

"We saw that no one was really building a pair of high quality headphones for gamers," said Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of the Logitech gaming business. "So we challenged our audio team to see if they could do it. I'm a gamer and a musician, so I was really excited when the team came back with a design that delivered." The headphones are fully customizable, feature RGB lighting, swappable backlit speaker plates and programmable G-keys. When paired with Logitech Gaming Software you can customize audio settings, create personal sound profiles, and easily save your favorite EQ (for the G933 Artemis Spectrum only).
Superior All-Around Audio
The patent pending advanced Pro-G audio drivers are made with hybrid mesh materials that provide the audiophile-like performance gaming fans demand. From your favorite music to expansive game soundtracks, the Pro-G drivers deliver both clean and accurate highs as well as a deep rich bass that you would expect from premium headphones.

The Logitech G633 and G933 are the first headphones to offer both Dolby and DTS Headphone:X surround options to gamers. The Pro-G drivers and surround sound technologies create lifelike in-game spatial awareness, allowing you to clearly hear enemies sneaking around, or special ability cues. DTS Headphone:X technology utilizes calibration and processing that brings gamers and audio fans closer to the studio experience than ever before, supporting up to 7.1 channels of audio and multiple options for personalization. The combination of DTS Headphone:X and Dolby's long history in cinematic audio gives gamers a truly unrivaled audio experience. DTS Headphone:X support will be available through a Logitech Gaming Software update in early October.

Multi-Platform Support and Sound Mixing
The Logitech G633 and G933 both work with PCs, mobile devices and consoles - including PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The Logitech G633 features one USB connection and one analog input that connects and mixes sound from up to two devices, while the Logitech G933 features one USB mix adapter and two analog inputs that connect and mixes sound from up to three devices.

As you are fending off your gaming enemies from your PC, you can simultaneously order a pizza via your cell phone without missing a moment of action. Additionally, the Logitech G933 works with your home theater (via a USB port and RCA audio out) to provide the perfect wireless home theater experience, so you can listen in your living room to all media connected to your home receiver or TV.

Personalized Programmability and RGB Lighting
From lighting to G-keys to custom tags to customizable sound, make your headset a reflection of you. Use Logitech Gaming Software to program lighting, audio and buttons. Adjust RGB lighting from up to 16.8 million colors and assign custom game macros on three programmable G-keys for a seamless gaming experience. A software equalizer lets you customize audio settings and create personal sound profiles.

Game Wirelessly or Wired
The Logitech G633 is a wired gaming headphone, while the Logitech G933 offers the option to play wired or wirelessly, with ultra-low latency on 2.4GHz wireless. Alternatively, use the included analog cable and 3.5mm analog input on the headset to play without using battery power. The wireless USB mix adapter allows you to use your analog audio or mobile devices wirelessly.

Pricing and Availability
The Logitech G633 Artemis Spectrum Gaming Headset is expected to be available at global retailers beginning in September 2015 for a suggested retail price of $149.99 and the Logitech G933 Artemis Spectrum Wireless Gaming Headset is expected to be available at global retailers beginning in October 2015 for a suggested retail price of $199.99.

The trick is...is it real 7.1 or is it simulated? So many times if its 5.1 or 7.1 it is simulated.

Then those ear pads, they better have easy replacement. Things are gonna be sweat filled spongy messes after one summer.

You live in a sauna? :D
I've had several similar headsets over the years and they tend to be fine. What I can't stand is the faux leather ones, as they make the both sides of your face wet sooner or later.

Dont worry since its Craptastic logitech, those earpads with their biohazard material are going to be a heaven for fungus. and you will be denied replacement for earpad as it is not covered under warranty.

I was under the impression they simulated it because real 5.1/7.1 is terrible with headphones. To fit that many drivers in one side means having tiny, terrible ones, no?

Nice. Maybe they will update and fix their piece of c.. drivers for other headsets too.
G930 is only usable on Windows 8/8.1/10 with stock USB audio drivers.

even if it's real, the individual driver must be very cheap

You have 2 ears, 2 drivers are enough to do 5.1 and 7.1 surround. Real 5.1 and 7.1 surround just means it can take 5.1/7.1 input and create surround sound. Pretty pointless considering most games already do this to some extent under their headphones setting.

It's an especially great statement because Logitech already made headphones, hence it implies all of Logitech previous headphones are not high quality

I always love hearing people shit on Logitech for their products but truth be told, I have NEVER had an issue with logitech products. I have been using them for probably 15 years or so. Im highly HIGHLY debating getting the G933's. I just saw them on LTT and I gotta say im quite impressed with them. I dont know if I want to replace my high quality Razer Blackshark headphones though.

Id sooner use a Logitech product over any other.

Dont you think you cried long enough about your bad experience with Logitech over there in India? And for how many years to come are you gonna complain in every single Logitech post over the internet? Ridiculous.

Because any half-decent engineer knows that you would need to use very small drivers inside the earcup to be able to fit so many of them for "real" 5.1 or 7.1, so those would sound worse and also undesirably "interact" with each other too (acoustic, vibration, etc).
A quality stereo headphone with large enough drivers + a decent binaural audio is where is at.
