Logitech Launches the G435 Lightspeed Wireless Gaming Headset

Wireless gaming headsets only keep gaining popularity and it's not hard to understand why once you've owned a pair, as losing the cable is really quite convenient. Logitech's latest entry into the wireless headset market is the G435, which is also their cheapest wireless model to date.

However, we're also looking at a lightweight headset here, at only 165 grams (5.8 oz) and Logitech is making a big deal about its sustainability too, with it being certified CarbonNeutral. What this means is that Logitech has carbon offset the production of the G435, which seems like a cheap shot at getting green creds, but Logitech does at least use a minimum of 22 percent of "post-consumer" recycled plastic by weight and FSC-certified paper sources for the packaging. How much any of this will matter when people are making their purchasing decisions is a different matter.

ASUS Deploying AI for Noise Cancellation Technology in Upcoming ROG Strix Go 2.4 Headset

ASUS- upcoming ROG Strix Go 2.4 headset may well grab more headlines than this one here at TechPowerUp, since the company has decided to integrate the latest buzzword in their upcoming product (missing is a "Gaming" addition). According to ASUS, the ROG Strix Go 2.4-s bi-directional boom-mic uses a noise-cancelling algorithm to block out up to 95% of unwanted noise, ranging from rage-induced keyboard mash-ups through nagging significant others (just kidding, they never nag). ASUS says that the algorithm they've deployed in these noise-cancellation features has been trained on a database of over 50 million records for tens of thousands of hours. But noise-cancellation with no discernible output sound quality wouldn't a driving product make, and so ASUS has included their 40 mm Asus Essence drivers on these headphones, which ASUS says have a penchant for Bass, and have been conditioned in an airtight chamber for reduction of any parasitic sounds.
