Logitech recently released several gaming peripherals under the "G Pro" name—a tenkeyless mechanical keyboard, two fantastic mice (wired and wireless), and a gaming headset, which I'll focus on in this review. The entire "G Pro" product family is built around the same concept: Logitech cooperates with various professional eSports teams (Team SoloMid, London Spitfire, San Francisco Shock, G2 Esports, and NRG Esports, to name a few) and develops peripherals according to the feedback that it gathered from some of the finest gamers in the world. Although this is a story we've heard a million times before, it seems that this time around, the pros actually do end up using the peripherals they helped bring to life. London Spitfire recently won Overwatch League's first championship while using the Logitech G Pro Wireless Mouse, and a bunch of members from Team SoloMid's PUBG team can be seen wearing the G Pro Gaming Headset in their Twitch streams.
As far as gaming headsets go, the $90 Logitech G Pro Gaming Headset falls into the "no-frills" category. It's fully analogue, meaning you'll have to connect it to an existing sound card via standard 3.5-mm port(s) and doesn't try to do a thing beyond being comfortable, sounding nice, and offering a good microphone. I'm a big fan of this approach as these are the three pillars that directly determine the quality of any gaming headset. Having some extra features can be nice, but if a headset doesn't deliver where it matters the most, there's nothing that can save it from mediocracy. With that being said, let's check out what Logitech and eSports professionals came up with!
