Logitech G, a brand of Logitech, and leading innovator of gaming technologies and gear, today introduced two new PRO gaming headsets, the Logitech G PRO X Gaming Headset and the Logitech G PRO Gaming Headset. Designed and engineered in collaboration with top esports athletes, the newest additions to the Logitech G PRO lineup of gaming gear combine incredible comfort and durability with high performing sound and voice technology, so all gamers of all abilities can hear and sound like a pro.

The PRO X marks the debut of Blue VO!CE software, developed in partnership with the industry-leading microphone expertise of Blue Microphones. Enabled using Logitech G HUB advanced gaming software, Blue VO!CE is a suite of real-time microphone effects that enables clean, professional voice communication. The result is you can tune your voice based on your individual preferences, so teammates can hear you better, or you can sound like a professional streamer.



"I was blown away by the difference that Blue VO!CE made in the way the headset's microphone sounded," said Hamlinz, TSM Fortnite. "They made a headset sound like a broadcast mic. That's just dope."

Out of the box, gamers can use the Blue VO!CE integrated recording and playback function to quickly select a preset filter profile and see which one sounds right for their voice's unique tone and volume. And, for gamers interested in another level of customization, Blue VO!CE's advanced mode offers a full set of pro-grade effects including a compressor, de-esser, and de-popper.

"Whether practicing, streaming or stomping the competition with some friends, clear communication is the foundation of great teamwork," said John Maier, president of Blue Microphones. "With this first introduction of Blue VO!CE for Logitech G Pro X, we're able to help gamers set up incredibly clean, professional communications with only a couple of clicks - so they can be confident they always sound their best."

To help pros with their rigorous training and travel schedules, the new gaming headsets were developed from the ground up to be comfortable enough to be worn for hours, while still having incredibly high durability. This lightweight design is constructed from aluminium and steel and features soft memory foam earpads, and a premium leatherette-wrapped headband. An extra set of velour-covered earpads is included with the PRO X.

"Designing products with professional esports athletes ensures that our gear has everything you need to help you perform your best in game," said Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of Logitech Gaming. "For our new PRO Series gaming headsets, we collaborated with esports players from around the world to help us design a gaming headset that lets you hear and sound like a pro."

Compatible with PC and mobile devices, the PRO X and PRO gaming headsets feature Logitech G's exclusive Pro-G 50 mm Audio driver. Crafted from a hybrid mesh material for high-quality audio, the headsets deliver deep bass and a round sound profile for highly cinematic audio. The PRO X additionally offers DTS Headphone: X 2.0 surround sound, an incredible technology that simulates the 3D environment of the audio's original mixing stage.

Pricing and Availability
The Logitech G PRO X Gaming Headset and the Logitech G PRO Gaming Headset are expected to be available on LogitechG.com and at global retailers in July 2019 for suggested retail prices of $129.99 and $99.99, respectively.

Newsflash: if you suck at gaming it's not because of your headset.
On the bright side, these aren't obscenely expensive, like other gamer-oriented gear.

What baffles me is that those manufacturers still rehash in re-releasing the same "7.1" gimmicky drivers and calling it now "2.0". Easy bait for non-tech savves/audiophiles due to colossal bs pumped into 50$ quality headphones with double the price. Anyone with sensible mind will always stack up a little bit and acquire decent <=80 ohms headphones with decent drivers or more luxurious with great AMP/DAC combo. That being said, Takstar Pro 80 and MH751 are pretty much what they offer here, minus the aesthetics for less dear.
