I am at most a casual gamer and a music lover, and, after 5 years of use, my Genesis Natec H59 broke. They where good enough for me at the time but I decided to get something better, and this was a good reason.
At last, I have to decide between 4 of them. In my country they are at the same price@ 100$. So we have the Logitech G Pro, the G635 , the HS60 or the Cloud II. I do care about music, some competitive games and that's all. I do not work with audio sensitive stuff so accuracy should be just for my enjoyment.
Thanks!
Artur.

Of yes, I forgot, any good suggestion is well taken(;.

Check out my thread here on the Logitech G633's and how to get the most out of them: https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/razer-tiamat-7-1-v2-and-logitech-artemis-g633-933-with-realtek-set-up.263062/

You can get the G633's for around $35 shipped on ebay, or the Razer's for $80 and above if you do a little searching. I have both, and after the tweaks I mention in my thread would recomend both, but my favorite atm is the Razers, but dont listen to the reviews, do as mentioned and they will kick all forms of butt ;)

The differences between the 633 and 635 is on the 635 lack of Dolby Digital, which in the hub sucks imo, to much un needed echo added, but the 635's have 50mm drivers where the 633's have 40, but again if you try what I wrote with them, the 633's get more then enough bass and then some to not warrant paying much more for 10mm more, again, IMO.
