We've tested 15 pairs of Logitech headphones. They make a fairly wide range of gaming headsets, though even their more premium models are budget-friendly. They're known for making comfortable headsets that offer good microphone performance, customization options, and well-balanced sound profiles. Unfortunately, most Logitech headsets are 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 over-ear gaming headphones are very well-built and come with a choice of either leatherette or cloth-covered earcup padding, so you can choose what's most comfortable for you. They have a detachable boom mic that makes your voice sound clear and full-bodied, and it does a decent job of separating your voice from background noise. Their well-balanced default sound profile delivers some extra boom, which can help bring out sound effects in action-packed games, but if you prefer a different sound you can also customize it with a graphic EQ and presets in the headphones' companion app. Their continuous battery life of nearly 24 hours is more than enough to last through long gaming sessions, too.
Unfortunately, they aren't the most versatile gaming headphones, since they aren't compatible with Xbox One consoles. They also have a poor noise isolation performance and block out virtually no noise in the bass range, so they aren't ideal for gaming in a noisy place. Like a lot of gaming headphones, they're quite bulky and not the most portable, since they only come with a thin fabric pouch to protect them from damage. That said, they're a solid choice if you're looking for wireless over-ear headphones, especially for gaming.
The best Logitech gaming headset with a wired connection that we've tested is the Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset. These headphones have a very high-end feel as they're well-built and have a very comfortable fit. They come with two different sets of memory foam pads so that you can find a fit that best suits you, and you can detach their mic if you want a more casual look. Their boom mic also does a good job of recording your voice, and it sounds clear even if you're talking in noisy settings. Out-of-the-box, they have a fairly balanced sound profile with a bump of extra boom to help bring out sound effects while you game. If you prefer a different sound, they're compatible with G HUB software, which allows you to adjust them to your liking using their graphic EQ and presets. These headphones come with a USB-A adapter, too, which is nice if you prefer a non-analog connection.
Unfortunately, their audio delivery is very sensitive to their fit, seal, and positioning on your head, so you may need to adjust them each time you use them to get a more consistent sound. They also struggle to block out background noise, which may be an issue if you like to game in a noisy environment. That said, these wired headphones offer a comfortable, customizable, and virtually latency-free experience, which is sure to please most users.
The best Logitech headphones for versatility 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. You can remove their superb boom microphone 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 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 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. If you want a good wired gaming headset that can double as your daily headphones, these are a good, versatile option with great value overall.
The Logitech G432 Gaming Headset is the best Logitech headset in the budget category that we've tested. These wired over-ear headphones are very customizable since Logitech's G HUB software gives you sound customization options, as well as other features like mic level and virtual surround sound settings. They're equipped with a boom mic with excellent overall performance, so your voice sounds full, natural, and is heard clearly, even in loud settings. Their default sound profile lacks low-bass, so music and game audio may be missing a bit of thump and rumble, but the well-balanced mid-range ensures voices and lead instruments are clear and accurate. They're quite comfortable, so they should be suitable for long gaming sessions.
Unfortunately, like a lot of over-ear gaming headphones, they don't block out much ambient noise and leak a bit of sound at high volumes, so they aren't ideal for use outside of relatively quiet areas. They're also prone to inconsistent audio delivery, so you may need to take some time to adjust the headphones each time you wear them in order to hear the same sound each time. However, that's typical of gaming headsets, and they're among the best gaming headsets under $50 that we've tested.
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. 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, their headphones are quite affordable compared to 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.
