Logitech G Pro Headset Review: Perfect for some games, not so for others.
Professional eSports, the competitive playing of multiplayer games for large sums of cash and relative fame, has exploded as an industry in the last ten years. With more and more gamers turning their passion into a career, and even high schools getting involved in the craze, it’s hardly a surprise that tech brands are chasing a piece of that pie.
Logitech’s latest G Pro headset is a professional grade Esport headset for the everyday gamer. It is for games like League of Legends, and Dota 2.
ProGamerReview recently got their hands on the Logitech G Pro Headset, and had great things to say about the construction and premium feel:
It’s lightweight materials, and leatherette ear pads make it comfortable to wear even for hours on end. Which means you can practice with your team or friends all day long and feel little to no fatigue from it which is a definite plus.
However, when it came to audio, the quality audio was marred by the absence of surround sound making it difficult to recommend as an all-around gaming headset:
The G Pro headset is quite excellent regarding the actual quality of the sound, and the G Pro drivers provide you with some of the clearest audio on the market.
The first thing I noticed was, of course, the lack of surround sound which seems like such a weird choice by Logitech as it puts them behind almost every other headset of that price class and even behind Logitech’s own, slightly cheaper G433. In games where the directional sound is a necessity such as in first-person shooters, I missed the surround sound feature as it can be incredibly useful for locating the enemy.
The headset’s full frequency microphone also took some getting used to, with a high sensitivity picking up a little more than necessary:
I do find it overly sensitive which can prove very annoying, but once you get the setting right and get used to it, it works perfectly fine. Just don’t keep it too close to your mouth as it is also good at picking up breathing sounds and your teammates will hate you for it.
ProGamerReview ultimately recommends the Logitech G Pro headset to gamers that care more about performance and precision than immersion. If you play MOBA games (such as Dota 2 or League of Legends), this headset is one of the best you can get. For more all-rounder gaming, however, you might wish to consider the Hyper X Cloud 2.

Logitech G Pro Mouse Review: The right choice for hardcore gaming
Logitech’s 2018 G Pro line capitalises on the booming eSports market, offering a series of gaming peripherals for pro gamers and extended gaming sessions. The team over at ProGamerReview recently got hands-on with the G Pro line.
ProGamerReview’s review of the G Pro Mouse praised the high level of customisation and performance provided:
The design is quite small, ambidextrous and very lightweight. This makes it perfect for the sort of tight grip that enables professional gamers to move the mouse with high speed and precision.
This is combined with some of the most potent gaming technology in the world and more importantly, specifications that focus on accuracy and speed. The zero filtering, acceleration, and smoothing together with its 1-millisecond response rate and lightning fast sensor creates one of the most well-optimised gaming mice on the market today.
The mouse body is robust and durable ABS plastic, with a metal spring button tensioning system. This makes the mouse more reliable and also increases the lifespan of the buttons, tested up to 50 million clicks.
