The Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED Wireless are the next generation of the Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED Gaming Headset. A couple of improvements and features have been added, like Bluetooth and analog support, a longer continuous battery life, and a new hinge design, which allows the ear cups to pivot to fit your head. Logitech has also retuned their sound to deliver more bass, bringing additional thump, rumble, and punch to your gameplay. Unfortunately, these headphones still only support one connection at a time, so you won't stay connected to your PC via the dongle and to your smartphone via Bluetooth simultaneously.
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.
The Logitech G PRO X 2 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. They don't have noise cancelling and struggle to block background noise like rumbly bus engines. Their carrying pouch also won't protect them from impact damage.
The Logitech PRO X 2 are satisfactory for sports and fitness, though gaming headphones aren't ideal for this purpose. They're bulky and can fall off of your head with moderate movement. 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.
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 block out ambient noise like coworker chit-chat.
The Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED are very good for wireless gaming. These headphones have a bass-heavy sound profile that you can customize using their companion software's graphic EQ and presets when gaming on PC. They also have low wireless latency, ensuring that your audio and visuals stay in sync during the heat of your gameplay, and 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 separate speech from ambient noise so that your voice is clear, even if you're gaming in noisy environments.
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 that can help create a more immersive sound, and their fit is comfortable enough for long gaming sessions. Their 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.
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 block background sound, so if you're sitting in a busy office, you'll have trouble hearing your call clearly.
The Logitech G PRO X 2 come in two color variants: 'Black' and 'White'. 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.
The Logitech G PRO X 2 are 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 for Xbox. Still, they have low wireless latency 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 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, 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.
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, which allows the headphones to swivel and better adjust to your head shape. They now have a significantly longer continuous playback time and support Bluetooth and analog, but you can't use these connections simultaneously when using the dongle. 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.
The Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED Wireless have the edge over the SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro Wireless [PC, PS, Xbox], though the SteelSeries offer more features. The Logitech are more comfortable, 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.
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.
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.
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.
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 hinges, which helps the cups accommodate your unique head shape. They come in two color variants: 'Black' and 'White'.
These headphones have a comfortable fit. They come with two pairs of memory foam ear pads: one set of cloth and the other, 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 help give the headphones a better range of motion to fit your unique head shape.
These headphones have very 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. There's a red ring to let you know when you're muted and 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 accidentally move the control wheel when adjusting the headset, so you'll want to be careful when touching it.
These headphones aren't very portable, but that's to be expected from gaming headphones. They're big, bulky, and take up a lot of room, whether you leave them on your desk or couch. The cups can swivel to lay flat, but that doesn't make them smaller in footprint.
These over-ears come with a soft cloth pouch to help protect them from dust when not in use. It has a zipper to keep the pouch closed, but it won't protect the headphones from water or impact damage.
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. While the Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED Gaming Headset's yoke-only design was an issue for users 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.
These over-ears have a fairly stable fit. They'll stay in place while you're gaming at your desk or couch. However, if you move around a lot, they can easily fall off your head.
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 help make gameplay more exciting. Their dip in the low to mid-treble weakens and dulls vocals and instruments. You can fine-tune their sound to your liking using their companion software's graphic EQ.
The frequency response consistency of these headphones is okay. They're 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.
The Logitech G PRO X 2 have excellent bass accuracy. They have a touch of extra bass, adding extra thump, rumble, and punch to your audio. There's adequate warmth and boom, which helps emphasize footsteps and other sound effects in action-packed games like VALORANT.
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 cans is passable. The response is underemphasized and takes a dip between the low to mid-treble range. As a result, vocals and instruments a veiled, while sibilants like S and T sounds are a little dull.
The Logitech G PRO X 2 have satisfactory peaks and dips performance. The largest peaks are in the treble range, as an uneven low-treble 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 help ensure a stable stereo image. 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 audio sound a bit boxy.
The passive soundstage is sub-par. These are closed-back headphones, so they struggle to create an open, spacious sound. Although sound also seems like it's coming from inside your head rather than from speakers in the room around you, the soundstage still feels wide and natural.
These headphones are compatible with DTS Headphone:X 2.0 via their companion software, designed to make your audio feel more immersive. Using this feature makes the bass sound boxy and nudges voices to the back of the mix, below other sounds in the mix like bass. These sounds are better centered in the soundstage, so they're more accurately localized than when the feature is off. There's also a visual representation of each virtual speaker, which you can customize the volume of each individually. However, playing with these settings didn't improve the boxy-sounding default virtual soundstage.
The Logitech G PRO X 2 have a great weighted harmonic distortion performance. There's a peak at normal volumes between the low to mid-treble, but it's minor and is hard to hear with real-life content. The frequencies fall within good levels, producing clear and pure audio reproduction.
These are the settings used to test these headphones. Our results are only used in this configuration.
The Logitech PRO X 2 have poor noise isolation. 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 AC units.
These headphones have an okay leakage performance. Leakage is mostly concentrated in the mid range, which sounds full-bodied. If you're gaming with the volume cranked up, others around you can hear it.
The boom mic's recording quality is okay but is a step down from their predecessor. Your voice sounds bassy and unnatural. While you'll still be heard clearly, your voice is a bit robotic.
The boom mic's noise handling performance is outstanding and significantly better than the Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED Gaming Headset. The mic can separate your voice from background noise very well. Even if you're talking near an open window with a lot of noise outside, background sound is almost completely cut, ensuring your voice sounds clear and easy to understand.
The battery performance of these over-ears is outstanding. The manufacturer advertises them to last 50 hours continuously, much longer than the Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED Gaming Headset. We measured 97 hours, though, which is significantly higher. However, the manufacturer doesn't elaborate on how they test for battery life, and it can vary depending on several factors, including volume level. As a result, we will be retesting the battery life to recheck our measurements. They're equipped with an auto-off timer to help conserve battery life, and you can adjust it in the app.
The Logitech G HUB software offers an outstanding amount of customization features. You can access a graphic EQ and presets and select user-made presets to help you customize their sound. You can adjust the mic and master volume, use the surround sound feature, and tweak the sidetone. You can check the headphones' battery life, too. However, changes made in the software don't save onto the headphones. As a result, you won't be able to benefit from features such as a customized EQ if you're using the headphones on consoles, which is a little disappointing.
One of the biggest changes in performance coming from the Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED Gaming Headset is Bluetooth compatibility. While these over-ears support Bluetooth, you can't use it and the wireless dongle simultaneously, which is disappointing. You can't use Bluetooth or the dongle at the same time as using an analog connection either, as this wired connection requires that the headphones are turned off to work.
Using a Bluetooth connection on PC results in high latency, causing your audio and visuals to fall out of sync. On the upside, audio lag on iOS and Android devices is much lower, helping to reduce lipsync mismatch. That said, some apps compensate for latency differently.
The Logitech G PRO X 2 have great non-Bluetooth wireless connectivity. Latency falls within good levels, ensuring that your audio and visuals are synched while gaming.
Unlike their predecessor, these headphones support an analog connection and come with a 1/8" TRRS cable. However, you'll need to have the headphones turned off to connect via analog. A USB-A to USB-C cable is also included in the box, but it's only for charging and updating the headphones.
The Logitech PRO X 2 can connect to PCs via analog, Bluetooth, and non-Bluetooth wireless with full audio and mic compatibility. However, you can only use one connection at a time.
You can wirelessly connect these headphones to PlayStation consoles via their dongle with full compatibility. You can also plug their analog cable into your controller's AUX port for full audio and mic support.
You can only plug these headphones into your Xbox controller's AUX port via analog. On the upside, you'll have full audio and mic support.
These headphones come with a wireless USB dongle that allows you to use the headphones wirelessly on PCs as well as PlayStation consoles. There's a port that lets you connect a device like an iPod to it so that you can play audio when using the dongle.
