The Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED Wireless are the follow-up to the Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED Gaming Headset. The updated gaming headset gains added features like Bluetooth and wired listening support, a major battery life upgrade, and creature comfort considerations like swiveling ear cups. Logitech has also retuned the sound to deliver more bass, bringing additional thump, rumble, and punch to your gameplay.

Our Verdict

7.8 Neutral Sound

The Logitech G PRO X 2 are very good for neutral sound. Out of the box, they have a bass-heavy sound profile that delivers a touch of extra thump and punch. However, a dip in the treble range weakens vocals and instruments, while sibilants like cymbals are a bit dull. The headphones are also prone to inconsistencies in audio delivery, so it's important to take the time to adjust their fit. On the upside, their companion software offers a graphic EQ and presets to help you find a sound that suits your tastes.

Pros
  • Very comfortable fit.
  • Customization features available via companion software.
Cons
  • Prone to inconsistencies in audio delivery.
6.8 Commute/Travel

The Logitech PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED are fair for commute and travel. While they have a bulky design, you can detach their boom mic for a more casual look and use them wirelessly via Bluetooth. They have a pretty comfortable fit for long days on the go, and their long-lasting battery will easily outlast most trips without a recharge. Still, commutes aren't their intended use. They don't have noise cancelling and really struggle to block background noise like rumbly bus engines. You also don't get playback controls besides volume. Their carrying pouch also won't protect them from impact damage.

Pros
  • Very comfortable fit.
  • Long-lasting continuous battery life.
Cons
  • Poor noise isolation performance.
  • Leak audio at high volumes.
7.0 Sports/Fitness

The Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED aren't ideal for sports and fitness. In particular, they're bulky and can fall off your head with moderate movement. Like most gaming headsets, they don't have any waterproofing like an IP rating. On the upside, you can detach their boom mic to help them look a bit more casual, and their wireless design makes it harder for something to snag the headphones off of your head.

Pros
  • Very comfortable fit.
Cons
  • Limited controls.
7.1 Office

The Logitech PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED are satisfactory for office use. These comfortable headphones have a long continuous playback time, so they won't die on you during your shift. They also have a boom mic, and while its recording quality is just okay, it does an outstanding job of separating speech from background sound so that you're heard clearly, even if the office is noisy. Unfortunately, the headphones struggle to isolate you from ambient noise like coworker chit-chat from reaching your ears.

Pros
  • Very comfortable fit.
  • Outstanding noise handling performance.
  • Long-lasting continuous battery life.
Cons
  • Don't support multiple simultaneous connections.
  • Poor noise isolation performance.
  • Leak audio at high volumes.
8.0 Wireless Gaming

The Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED are great for wireless gaming. These headphones have a bass-heavy sound profile that you can customize using their companion software's graphic EQ and presets on PC, and you can save EQ settings to work on PlayStation consoles. They also have low wireless latency using the dongle, ensuring that your audio and visuals stay in sync during the heat of your gameplay. Their continuous battery life lasts through long marathons without an issue. While the boom mic's recording quality makes your voice sound bassy and unnatural, it can filter out noisy backgrounds to make your voice clear.

Pros
  • Very comfortable fit.
  • Customization features available via companion software.
  • Long-lasting continuous battery life.
Cons
  • Don't support multiple simultaneous connections.
8.1 Wired Gaming

The Logitech G PRO X 2 are great for wired gaming. Unlike their predecessor, they support an analog connection, so you can connect it to most consoles and PCs with an AUX port. They have a bass-heavy sound for added rumble. Their fit is comfortable enough for long gaming sessions. The boom mic does an okay job of capturing your voice but offers significantly better performance when separating speech from noise around you. Unfortunately, they struggle to create an open and immersive soundstage since they're closed-back headphones.

Pros
  • Very comfortable fit.
  • Customization features available via companion software.
Cons
  • Don't support multiple simultaneous connections.
7.3 Phone Calls

The Logitech PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED are decent for phone calls. They use a boom mic, and while it makes your voice sound bassy and unnatural, it can separate speech from ambient noise very well, so if you're taking calls in a noisy environment, you'll be heard clearly. That said, the headphones struggle to reduce background sound, so if you're sitting in a busy office, you'll have trouble hearing your call clearly.

Pros
  • Very comfortable fit.
  • Outstanding noise handling performance.
Cons
  • Prone to inconsistencies in audio delivery.
  • Poor noise isolation performance.
  • 7.8 Neutral Sound
  • 6.8 Commute/Travel
  • 7.0 Sports/Fitness
  • 7.1 Office
  • 8.0 Wireless Gaming
  • 8.1 Wired Gaming
  • 7.3 Phone Calls

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED Wireless come in three color variants: 'Black,' 'White,' and 'Pink.' We tested the 'Black' variant; you can see our model's label here. If you encounter another variant of this model, please let us know in the forums, and we'll update our review.

Compared To Other Headphones

The Logitech PRO X 2 represent the next generation of the Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED Gaming Headset. They now support analog and Bluetooth, although you can't use multiple connections simultaneously, unlike other premium headsets like the SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro Wireless. Still, they have low wireless dongle latency on PC and a continuous battery life that'll last through long gaming marathons without a recharge. They're also very comfortable and come with two pairs of differently clothed ear cups to help you get the best fit. The mic doesn't sound true to life; however, your voice remains understandable, and the mic's environmental noise filtering is remarkable, so even in very noisy environments, your friends will hear you.

Check out our picks for the best gaming headsets, the best wireless gaming headsets, and the best headsets for PS5.

Razer BlackShark V2 Pro Wireless 2023

The Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED Wireless are more versatile gaming headphones than the Razer BlackShark V2 Pro Wireless 2023. The Logitech are more comfortable, are better built, and have a more neutral default sound profile, which some people may prefer. Their mic also has a significantly better noise handling performance and can be used via analog. On the other hand, the Razer's mic has superior recording quality.

SteelSeries Arctis Nova 7 Wireless [7, 7P, 7X]

The Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED Wireless are better gaming headphones than the SteelSeries Arctis Nova 7 Wireless and their variants. The Logitech are better built, are more comfortable, and feature a more neutral sound profile that gives you more consistent audio delivery over multiple gaming sessions. They also boast a mammoth battery life of 97 hours, almost triple that of the SteelSeries. However, the SteelSeries have a better mic recording quality and support multi-device pairing, meaning you can pair them with a phone or laptop via Bluetooth while using the dongle to stay connected to your PC or console. 

HyperX Cloud III Wireless

The Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED Wireless and HyperX Cloud III Wireless are similarly performing wireless gaming headphones. Depending on your preferences, you might prefer one over the other. Both headphones are sturdy and comfortable for long gaming sessions. However, the Logitech have a much more accurate bass response adding rumble and intensity to cinematic sequences. They also support a wired connection, meaning you can connect to Xbox series consoles, which isn't possible with the HyperX. That said, the HyperX have a more accurate mid and treble range response and a longer battery life, and the boom mic sounds more natural compared to the Logitech's boomy, bass-heavy recording quality.

Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED Gaming Headset

The Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED Wireless are the next generation of the Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED Gaming Headset and come with some nice improvements. Although the second generation model looks similar and offers parallel comfort, they now have a hinge design, allowing the headphones to swivel and better adjust to your head shape. They also have a significantly longer continuous playback time and support Bluetooth and analog, but you can't use these connections simultaneously. Additionally, their sound has gotten some re-tuning and is now a bit more thumpy and punchy, although vocals and instruments sound weaker. The second gen's mic performance is different too, and even though the recording quality has taken a dive in performance, the mic can easily separate noise from your voice.

SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro Wireless [PC, PS, Xbox]

The Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED Wireless have the edge over the SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro Wireless, though the SteelSeries offer more features. The Logitech are more comfortable and have a more balanced and neutral sound, which some users may prefer, and their passive soundstage performance is better. They also have a longer continuous playback time. However, the SteelSeries come in an Xbox variant, which is nice if you normally game on that console, and they come with a DAC that offers controls like EQs and channel mixing at your fingertips. They also have ANC, which is handy if you want to block out some background noise while gaming, and you can pair them via Bluetooth and dongle simultaneously.

Astro A50 X Wireless

The Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED and the Astro A50 X Wireless are both premium gaming headphones that are comfortable and have great build quality. The Astro have a myriad of connectivity options through their base station, with plenty of USB-C inputs and the capability for HDMI passthrough with their three 2.1 inputs, which is ideal for gamers with multiple systems. The PLAYSYNC function also makes it easy to switch between them. They also have a more balanced default sound profile and more intuitive physical controls. However, the base station lacks the Logitech's USB dongle's line-out port. The Logitech have a longer continuous battery life, though, and you can use them with a wired connection.

Audeze Maxwell Wireless

The Audeze Maxwell Wireless are slightly better gaming headphones than the Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED Wireless. While both headsets have a premium, well-built design, the Audeze come in console-specific variants to suit your needs. They have a more neutral sound profile, which some users may prefer, their overall microphone performance is better, and they support multi-device pairing, which is handy if you want to game from your console and receive audio from your smartphone simultaneously. If you want to use the headphones more casually, they also support higher audio-quality Bluetooth codecs like LC3, LC3+, and LDAC. However, the Logitech are more comfortable, and their app offers more customization features.

Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset

The Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED Wireless are more versatile gaming headphones than the Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset. While both headphones are comfortable, the G PRO X 2 are better built, and you can use them wireless via their dongle or Bluetooth. You can also use them wired via analog. That said, if you don't mind their wired-only design, the G Pro X have a better microphone performance.

Astro A50 Gen 4 Wireless 2019

The Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED WIRELESS and the Astro A50 Gen 4 Wireless 2019 have different strengths. While both headphones have a comfortable, well-built design, the Astro are wireless-only headphones with console-specific variants to suit your needs. They have a more neutral sound profile, which some users may prefer, their passive soundstage feels more immersive, and their mic offers a superior overall performance. However, some users have encountered issues when using their companion software, which is disappointing. On the flip side, the Logitech support wired as well as wireless connections but can't be used wirelessly on Xbox consoles. They have a longer-lasting continuous battery life and even support Bluetooth, though you can't use it simultaneously with an analog or dongle connection. You also get a second set of ear pads with the Logitech, an otherwise added cost for the Astro.

Corsair HS80 MAX WIRELESS

The Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED Wireless are better overall gaming headphones than the Corsair HS80 MAX WIRELESS. While both products are well-built, the Logitech are more comfortable and have a more balanced and neutral sound, which some users may prefer. Their passive soundstage feels more immersive, though it's still quite closed-off and audio doesn't feel very out of head. Their continuous battery life is even higher, too, and they can be used via analog in a pinch. Conversely, the Corsair's boom mic has a significantly better recording quality.

The Logitech G PRO X 2 look similar to their predecessor, the Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED Gaming Headset. They have a metallic accent on each ear cup with the manufacturer's logo at the center. Unlike their predecessor, they also have swiveling hinges, which helps the cups accommodate your unique head shape. They come in three color variants: 'Black,' 'White,' and 'Pink.'

The Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED feel very comfortable. They come with two pairs of memory foam ear pads: one set is cloth, and the other is leatherette. The headphones don't clamp too tightly onto your head and won't apply significant pressure if you wear glasses. The ear cups are spacious and have good depth, and the hinges on the yoke give the headphones a better range of motion to fit your unique head shape. Unlike their predecessor, these have ear cups that can rotate flat if you want to sling them around your neck, and they're slightly lighter.

These headphones have simple controls. They're all located on the left ear cup and are easy to use. There's a button to turn the headphones on and off, an infinite volume wheel, and a mic mute button. A red indicator tells you when you're muted (but you have to remove the headphones to see it), and it has differing tones to let you know when you've changed the mic mute setting. The volume wheel also has a chime to indicate max volume, though there isn't one for min volume. It's easy to move the control wheel when adjusting the headset accidentally, so you'll want to be careful when touching it. There are no additional controls for playback like play/pause.

The Logitech PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED aren't very portable, but that's normal for gaming headphones. They're big and bulky and take up a lot of room, whether you leave them on your desk or couch. You can remove the boom mic to streamline the headset's shape somewhat. The cups can swivel to lay flat, but that doesn't make them smaller in footprint.

The Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED have great build quality. They're made of steel, aluminum, and plastic, making them feel solid. They also come with two pairs of differently covered memory foam ear pads—cloth and leatherette. While the previous Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED Gaming Headset's yoke-only design was an issue as it could break over time, this model's hinge puts less pressure on the yokes and allows them to pivot to fit your head better. However, we don't know if this design holds up over time. You can see a side-by-side comparing both generations here.

Compared to the Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED Gaming Headset, which have a more neutral sound profile, these headphones deliver more bass with a touch of extra warmth and boom to make gameplay more exciting. Their dip in the low- to mid-treble weakens and dulls vocals and instruments, though. You can fine-tune their sound to your liking using their companion software's graphic EQ, which, as of firmware 1.1.2, can save your EQ settings to the wireless dongle for gaming with PlayStation consoles.

These headphones come with two different sets of pads that can change their sound profile. Our sound results reflect the leather padding, but we've also tested the frequency response using the cloth pads. Using these pads results in a lot less bass and recessed mids. Vocals and instruments sound weaker and are nudged to the back of the mix. The treble range is largely consistent with the leather padding results, though.

When comparing the frequency response using the dongle and wired analog connections, the dongle produces a weightier low-bass. However, the wired connection has much more bassy boom, while dialogue and instruments sound slightly thinner and are nudged to the back of the mix. Besides a narrow peak in the low-treble range that's more exaggerated in wireless mode, leading to harsher harmonics, the rest of the treble range is fairly similar, and overall, you can expect dull and weak highs.

The frequency response consistency is okay. The headphones are prone to inconsistencies in audio delivery, and you'll especially notice a drop in bass if you wear glasses or have thick hair, as this can break the headphones' seal on your head. You'll need to ensure a good fit each time you use them to get a more consistent sound.

These over-ears have excellent mid accuracy. The response is flat, save for a dip in the high-mid, which weakens vocals and instruments. However, these sounds are still in the mix and won't be drowned out by the bass. That means the soundtrack or sound effects don't drown out voices if you play dialogue-centric games like Disco Elysium.

The treble accuracy of these headphones is passable. The response is underemphasized and takes a dip between the low- to mid-treble range. As a result, vocals and instruments are veiled, while sibilants like 'S' and 'T' sounds are a little dull.

The Logitech G PRO X 2 have a satisfactory peaks and dips performance. The headphones have some difficulty controlling their frequency response from the mid-mid through low-treble regions, but the bass and higher-treble regions are more controlled. Through the mid-bass region, a peak contributes to a punchy voicing, emphasizing sounds like thunder and other bassy elements. A peak in the high-mid can sound honky on instruments like guitars. An uneven low-treble response of peaks and dips turns the upper harmonics of vocals and instruments harsh and veiled, while a peak in the mid-treble makes sibilants like 'S' and 'T' sounds piercing.

Across all of the headphones we've tested from Logitech, this manufacturer has shown good quality control and ergonomics, which are factors that play into driver matching and the placement of objects like voices in the stereo image. Even though imaging varies between units, the Logitech PRO X 2's are well-matched in amplitude and frequency response, which ensures a stable stereo image. The group delay skims just below the audibility threshold, so low frequencies reach your ears almost simultaneously with higher frequencies. A small peak in the phase response's low-mid can skew audio, like male voices, to the left. The virtual surround feature can help re-center the voice, but it also makes the audio sound a bit boxy.

DTS Headphone:X 2.0

These headphones are compatible with DTS Headphone:X 2.0 via their companion software designed to make your audio feel more immersive in surround sound, but its effectiveness is bad. Unfortunately, using this feature makes the bass sound boxy and nudges voices to the back of the mix, and trebly sounds come across as harsh. On the upside, sounds like footsteps are better centered in the soundstage, so they're more accurately localized than when the feature is off.

You get a few virtual surround options labeled as Entertainment, Gaming, Sports, and DTS Super Stereo Mode with some presets. Also, there's a visual representation of each virtual speaker, which you can individually customize the volume of. However, playing with these settings didn't improve the boxy-sounding default virtual soundstage.

Some users have also reported issues with the audio enhancement on Windows 11; even if you turn the feature off, it turns back on upon rebooting your computer. By default in Windows 11, 'Logitech HX2E Surround Sound Effect' is enabled and automatically re-enabled when the PC is awakened or turned on and re-connects with the headphones. However, if you disable Surround Sound in the app but leave the Windows Audio Enhancement on, the frequency response is affected, which can be annoying. This Reddit thread provides a fix, but it's important to note that this issue isn't necessarily specific to Logitech; audio enhancement is always enabled by default for any newly connected audio devices in Windows 11. We tested these headphones on a Windows 10 PC, so we didn't experience this issue. We also verify that this feature is disabled when testing.

The Logitech G PRO X 2 have a great weighted harmonic distortion performance.

The Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Headset has poor full range noise isolation using their leather padding. They rely on their passive capabilities to block out background sound. As a result, they don't isolate you from any of the low rumble of car engines from an open window and have a hard time reducing ambient chatter. On the upside, they do a better job of cutting down the high-pitched hum of computer fans.

If you're using the cloth ear cups, you'll get even worse noise isolation. You can see a comparison between the leather and cloth padding here.

With the Blue Voice feature disabled, the boom mic's recording quality is okay but is a step down from their predecessor. While you'll still be easily understandable, your voice sounds closed off and unnatural. If you want more control over your mic performance, Blue Voice includes tools like a de-esser, compressor, and limiter.

We also tested the microphone's performance with Blue Voice enabled. Subjectively, your voice sounds more bassy and robotic with this feature enabled, likely due to the software's filtering and noise reduction algorithms.

Even if you're talking near an open window with a lot of noise outside, it almost completely cuts background sound, ensuring your voice sounds clear and easy to understand.

The battery performance is outstanding. The manufacturer advertises them to last 50 hours continuously, which is much longer than the Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED Gaming Headset. We measured 97 hours, though, which is significantly higher and not much less than the 123-hour battery life of the HyperX Cloud III Wireless. However, the manufacturer doesn't elaborate on how they test for battery life, and it can vary depending on several factors, including volume level. They have an auto-off timer to conserve battery life, and you can adjust the timer in the app. There's no quick charging function, so once you drain the battery, you'll have to wait roughly 2.5 hours to recharge the battery completely.

The Logitech G HUB software offers an outstanding amount of customization features. You can access a graphic EQ and presets or select user-made presets to customize their sound. You couldn't transfer EQ settings from the PC to PlayStation consoles upon launch. However, as of firmware 1.1.2, you can save your EQ settings to the wireless dongle for PlayStation 4 and 5 use. Just select 'update on-board memory (DAC)' in the software, and the EQ settings will transfer when you plug it into a PS console. In addition, you can adjust the mic and master volume, use the surround sound feature, and tweak the sidetone. You can also check the headphones' battery life.

You'll find the Blue Voice feature in the Logitech G HUB software to adjust the mic. It includes some features like a de-esser (meant to minimize sibilant sounds), adjustable noise filters, a compressor (for evening out the levels if you speak at inconsistent volumes or place the mic far away), and a limiter (which helps if you're prone to distorting by speaking too loudly, setting the mic too close to the mouth, or both).

The headphones have decent Bluetooth connectivity. One of the biggest changes in performance compared to the previous Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED Gaming Headset is the added Bluetooth compatibility on the Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED Wireless. Disappointingly, you can't use Bluetooth and the wireless dongle simultaneously. You can't use Bluetooth or the dongle at the same time as using an analog connection, as this wired connection requires the headphones to be off to work. The headphones also don't support multi-device pairing.

Using a Bluetooth connection on a PC results in somewhat high latency, so you may encounter syncing issues between your audio and video. Because the Logitech G PRO X 2's codec support doesn't include higher quality codecs like aptX Adaptive that can adjust to minimize latency, the headphones are most useful for listening to audio when connected over Bluetooth. That said, some apps compensate for latency differently.
