We've tested 13 pairs of Logitech headphones. They make a fairly wide range of gaming headsets, though even their more premium models are quite budget-friendly. They're known for making comfortable headsets that offer good microphone performance, customization options, and well-balanced sound profiles. Unfortunately, most of their headsets are quite bulky with very gamer-centric designs that may not be the best choice for day-to-day use.
The best Logitech wireless headset that we've tested is the Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED Gaming Headset. These gaming-oriented over-ears are comfortable and well-built, and their detachable boom microphone makes it easy to communicate with your teammates. The microphone has a great recording quality, and your voice is transmitted clearly even if you're gaming in a lively environment. Their sound profile is quite neutral and balanced, and the touch of extra boom in the bass range is ideal for action-packed scenes in your favorite video games. They have a 23.9-hour continuous battery life, and they're compatible with Logitech's G HUB software, so you can customize their sound and adjust their microphone settings.
Unfortunately, they have poor noise isolation performance, so they can't really block out background noises that may distract you from your game. Also, they aren't compatible with Xbox One consoles, which may be inconvenient for some gamers. While you can remove their microphone for a more casual look, they're still quite bulky, and their thin fabric pouch doesn't do much to protect the headphones from falls or drops. However, if you're looking for the best Logitech headphones with a wireless connection, they're a solid choice.
The best Logitech gaming headset with a wired connection that we've tested is the Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset. These good wired gaming headphones have a much more casual and retro design than most other Logitech gaming headsets, and their detachable boom microphone makes them great for day-to-day use as well. Their microphone performance is very good, and your voice sounds full-bodied, clear, and easy to hear in loud situations. Their wired connection means you can easily plug them into the controller of most modern consoles, and their out-of-the-box sound profile is fairly well-balanced. If you prefer your headphones sound a specific way, you can also adjust their sound via a graphic EQ within Logitech's G HUB software.
Like most larger over-ear gaming headphones, their frequency response consistency is quite poor, so different people will likely experience their sound profile differently, and you may need to slightly adjust them on your head every time you wear them. They also don't block out very much background noise, which could be an issue if you want to use them as regular headphones in the office or on a bus. That said, these are a good pair of gaming headphones if you prefer a more stable, wired connection.
The best Logitech headset for a variety of uses that we've tested is the Logitech G433 Gaming Headset. These wired gaming headphones have a much more sleek look than the Logitech G432 Gaming Headset and come with a bunch of additional components that make them a great option if you also want to use them as your day-to-day headphones as well. Their superb boom microphone can be removed entirely, and you can swap their regular cable out for one with an in-line microphone, so you can use them while on-the-go and still take phone calls. Their ear cups are quite comfortable, and they come with two different types of padding, depending on what you prefer. Their out-of-the-box sound profile is very well-balanced, and they can be EQ'd within the Logitech G HUB software.
Unfortunately, like with most over-ear gaming headphones, they don't block out very much background noise, and they leak a fair amount of audio. This means that they won't help give you any peace during your daily commute, and you likely won't be able to blast your music at the office without your coworkers hearing. However, if you want a good wired gaming headset that can also double as your daily use headphones, these are a good, versatile option that offer great value overall.
The Logitech G432 Gaming Headset is the best Logitech headset in the budget category that we've tested. These wired-only headphones have a gaming-oriented design with a boom microphone, and they're quite comfortable. The mic's excellent recording quality transmits your voice clearly and accurately to your teammates, even if you're gaming in a noisy setting. They have a pretty neutral sound profile, especially in the mid-range, so voices and lead instruments are reproduced clearly. However, they're lacking a bit of low-bass and may sound a bit dark out-of-the-box, so you may want to use the graphic EQ and presets in the Logitech G HUB software to customize their sound.
Unfortunately, like many gaming headsets on the market, these headphones have poor noise isolation, and they leak a bit of sound, so they aren't really ideal to use out of your house. Their build quality is okay overall, but they feel a bit plasticky, and their joints don't feel very solid. You can't remove the boom microphone for a more casual look, either. However, if you're on a budget, their amazing microphone performance and their robust customization features make them a solid choice.
Overall, Logitech makes very good comfortable gaming headsets that are customizable and generally have well-performing microphones. They make a good mix of wired or wireless offerings, and they range from budget to more premium headphones, though they generally tend to offer better overall value than some premium options from companies like SteelSeries or Astro. Overall, if you don't mind their bulkier look, Logitech headsets generally represent good value and have good price-to-performance ratios.

Logitech makes good gaming headsets overall that tend to be comfortable, customizable, and have good microphone performance. While they have a fairly wide range from cheaper to more premium models, all their headphones are quite affordable when compared to some premium options from brands like SteelSeries or Astro. Unfortunately, their wireless headsets only work with PS4 or PC, and you'll need to wire them into your controller if you want to use them with an Xbox One.
