The Logitech G Pro X is a good sounding gaming headset that has lots of customization options. It's one of the most comfortable and better-built gaming headsets we’ve reviewed so far. They look quite similar to the HyperX Cloud II but feel slightly more high-end. They have a detachable boom microphone and Blue Voice technology inside their app, letting you access tons of customization options and settings for the mic as well. Unfortunately, like most gaming headphones, they're quite bulky and don’t fare well in noisy environments. They also perform quite inconsistently across different users, so your experience may vary. On the upside, they can be used on pretty much every gaming platform, and come with an extra pair of pads and an additional mobile-friendly audio cable to you use with your phone.
Passable for mixed usage. These headphones are designed for gaming thanks to their very comfortable fit, good sound quality, and great microphone. However, while their mic is detachable and they come with a mobile-friendly in-line remote, their fit doesn’t isolate much ambient noise, meaning they won’t be ideal for public transit or at the office. They are also bulky over-ears and aren’t designed for sports. They’ll be fine for watching video content thanks to their wired connection, but this means your range will be limited and won’t be able to watch TV without an extension cable.
Good for neutral listening. The G Pro X have a pretty good sound profile with powerful and extended bass, an even mid-range, and a very good treble performance too. However, they might sound a bit boomy in the bass range, with a bit of lack of detail in the treble range. However, your experience may vary considerably as they fail to perform consistently on different users. On the upside, they have a good EQ inside their app that lets you tweak their sound to your liking.See our Neutral Sound recommendations
Mediocre for commuting. These bulky over-ears won’t be great for public transit as they don’t isolate against lower-end noises like the rumbling of bus engines. They are also very hard to carry around and don’t fold into a more compact format. On the upside, you can use their mobile-friendly cable to control your music with the in-line remote.See our Commute/Travel recommendations
Mediocre for sports. These gaming headphones shouldn’t be used for physical activity. They are quite bulky and trap a good amount of heat inside their ear cups, which will make you sweat more when working out. They will also sway around during intense physical activity and won’t be great for running. Additionally, they are wired, so there’s a risk the cable could get hooked or stuck on something and yank the headphones off your head.See our Sports/Fitness recommendations
Okay for the office. While the G Pro X don’t do much against lower-end frequencies, they do a pretty decent job blocking out work environment noises like ambient chatter and A/C system noise. Their wired connection also means you won’t have to worry about battery life, but it won’t offer the freedom of a wireless pair of headphones. On the upside, they are quite comfortable to wear for a while and don’t leak too much, so listening at a higher volume won’t disturb surrounding colleagues.See our Office recommendations
Good for gaming. These headphones are comfortable for long gaming sessions and are one of the better-built gaming headphones we’ve reviewed so far. They have a good sound profile and a great sounding microphone. They are also compatible with the Logitech G Hub software which allows multiple customization options, including the Blue Voice technology for the microphone. Also, since they are wired, they won’t have any latency issues, which is great for gaming. However, their wired design may not be as convenient for everyone as some of the wireless models we've tested.See our Wireless Gaming recommendations
The Pro X are great-looking gaming headphones. Their shape kind of resembles that of the HyperX Cloud II and HyperX Cloud Alpha. The frame is made of metal and the padding is thick and comfortable. The cups are big, deep, and feel very high-end thanks to the metal silver accent on the back of the cups. You can easily detach the microphone, which gives them a more outdoor-friendly look too. However, they only come in one color scheme.
The Pro X are very comfortable headphones that you can wear during long gaming sessions. They come with two different sets of memory foam pads; one covered by leather and the other by cloth. Both are very comfortable and feel nice on the skin. The cups are big and deep, which should fit most ear sizes and shapes. However, the cups don’t have the best range of motion and can feel a bit tight for some people. On the upside, the headband is well padded and wide, which distributes the weight of the headphones well.
The control scheme of the Pro X is pretty simple but fairly useful for gamers. They come with two different cables that offer different controls on their in-line remotes. The braided cable is the one you should use when gaming since it has a mic-mute switch and a volume wheel. The normal audio cable is useful for mobile users as there’s a multi-purpose button that lets you play/pause your music and skip tracks forward, but unfortunately, it doesn’t offer a volume wheel.
The Logitech G Pro X aren't very breathable headphones. They trap a good amount of heat under their ear cups, and you'll notice a difference in temperature when wearing these when working out. This shouldn’t be an issue when casually gaming. With the cloth pads, we measured an average temperature difference of about 6.2 degrees.
Like most gaming headphones, the G Pro X aren’t very portable. Their design is pretty bulky and they can’t fold or swivel into a more portable and compact format. Most of the time, you won’t be moving around that much with your gaming headset, but if you want to use it around with your phone, this won’t be the most portable option.
The Pro X come with a nice and thick pouch, but it doesn’t protect the headphones that much. The pouch protects against light scratches, but won’t prevent the headphones from physical damage from falls and water exposure.
The Logitech G Pro X are among the best-built gaming headphones we’ve reviewed so far. They have a fairly similar build to the HyperX Cloud II with metal hinges and headband frame. The padding feels high-end regardless of the pads you’re using, and the boom mic and cable are fully detachable and replaceable. They have a very similar build quality to that of the Beyerdynamic DT 1990 PRO.
The G Pro X are stable enough for gaming purposes but won’t be ideal if you make a lot of head movement. Since they are quite tight, tilting the head doesn’t make the headphones move, but more high-intensity movements may make them sway around. They are also wired headphones, meaning that the cable could get stuck or hooked or something and pull the headphones off your head, if the cable doesn’t detach itself first.
The G Pro X have sub-par consistency performance. In the bass range, they have a fairly inconsistent delivery across users, with about 6dB of variance at 20Hz. They also seem especially prone to a drop in bass if the user is wearing glasses that break the air-tight seal between the headphones and the ear. Their performance in the treble range is a bit worse, with a maximum deviation below 10kHz of about 10dB, which will also be noticeable. These headphones fail to perform consistently across users and between reseats, so their performance will vary depending on the listener.
The bass performance of the G Pro X is very good. Their LFE (low-frequency extension) is down to 10Hz, which is excellent. Also, their low-bass performance follows our target curve, resulting in an accurate amount of thump and rumble common to bass-heavy genres. Unfortunately, the response gets overemphasized by more than 4dB higher in the bass range, adding a bit of boominess and muddiness to the overall sound.
The mid-range performance on the G Pro X is great. The response throughout the range is well-balanced and even, resulting in an accurate reproduction of vocals and lead instruments. However, there is a small bump in low-mid, which is the continuation of the high-bass. This will thicken and clutter vocals/leads a bit, but won’t be too audible for most.
The Logitech G Pro X have good treble performance. The response is fairly well-balanced, but it's mostly under our target curve. Some may feel like this headset lacks detail and brightness in higher frequencies. However, they fail to perform consistently across various users in the treble range. These results are the average of our measurements and your experience may vary.
The stereo imaging performance of the G Pro X is very good. Their weighted group delay is 0.26, which is good. The GD graph also shows that the entire group delay is below the audibility threshold, suggesting a tight bass and a transparent treble. Additionally, the L/R drivers of our test unit were quite well-matched in amplitude and frequency response but left some room for improvement in phase matching. This could weaken the stereo image to a small degree, but won't affect the accurate placement of objects (instruments, voice, footsteps) in the stereo image. Note that these results are only valid for our unit and yours may perform differently.
The soundstage of the Logitech G Pro X is sub-par. While the PRTF graph shows a good amount of pinna interaction with good accuracy, there isn’t a notch present at 10kHz. This and the fact that they are closed-back will make them less open-sounding than open-backs. The soundstage may feel large, but won’t sound natural or will be located inside of the listener’s head rather than in-front.
Just like the original Logitech G Pro, the isolation performance is sub-par for the G Pro X. In the bass range, occupied by the rumble of airplane and bus engines, they achieve no isolation, which means they won’t be suitable for public transit. In the mid-range, important for blocking out speech, they achieve about 12dB of isolation, which is about decent. In the treble range, where sharp sounds like S and Ts sit, they isolate by 33dB, which is good.
The leakage performance of the G Pro X is good. The significant portion of leakage sits between 400Hz and 3kHz, which is a relatively narrow range. This results in a leakage that sounds fuller and more comprehensible than the leakage of in-ears and earbuds, but not as much as open-back headphones. However, the overall level of leakage is not too loud. With the music at 100dB SPL, the leakage at 1 foot away averages at 36dB SPL and peaks at 52dB SPL, which is around the noise floor of most offices.
The Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset have a very good boom microphone. In quiet environments, speech recorded or transmitted with this mic will sound deep, detailed, and intelligible. However, it could also sound overly bright and sharp at times. The Pro X's mic also performs very well in noisy conditions and can separate speech from background noise even in very loud environments.
These headphones also have Blue Voice technology. When enabling it inside the G Hub app, you get access to multiple customization options like an EQ, compressor, noise gate, filter, noise reduction, on top of presets from popular gaming personalities and pro players. However, we measured the microphone without using any of these settings.
Note: The mobile cable also has an in-line mic to use with your phone and mobile devices.
The G Pro X’s boom mic has a good recording quality. LFE (low-frequency extension) is at 89Hz, which is very good. This means speech recorded/transmitted with this mic will sound deep and full. The HFE of 13kHz is also very good, which ensures a detailed and present speech. However, the 10dB bump in treble surrounding 5kHz makes speech overly bright to the point of sounding sharp, while the bump after 100Hz suggests this mic is sensitive to pops and low-end noises. On the plus side, speech is very clear and intelligible on this mic.
The boom microphone on the G Pro X is great at noise handling. In our SpNR test, it achieved a speech-to-noise ratio of 34dB, which means it can separate speech from ambient noise to a great degree even in very loud and demanding situations.
The Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset are wired, passive headphones that don’t have features requiring a battery.
The Logitech G Hub app is amazing. You have many customization options for your sound quality thanks to a good EQ, but you can also control your mic, apply effects, and enable surround sound. You can also enable the G Pro X Blue Voice feature, which gives you customization options for your microphone as well. The app is easy to navigate and it’s one of the best gaming software we’ve reviewed so far.
The G Pro X aren’t Bluetooth compatible.
Thanks to the wired connection, these headphones don’t have latency issues, which is great for playing games or watching video without a delay.
You can get full audio and microphone support with their 1/8” connection options on all platforms that have the appropriate jack. You can also use the G Pro X's USB adapter on PC and PS4, but it won’t work with the Xbox One. The adapter also stores the settings changes you make in G Hub on PC and keeps them when used on PS4.
The Logitech G Pro X are one of the better-built gaming headphones we’ve reviewed so far. They feel like high-end headsets that set themselves apart with their build quality, comfortable design, and Blue Voice technology features that let you customize a lot of microphone settings, which is great. However, they fail to perform consistently across different users and won’t be great in a noisy gaming environment.

The Logitech G Pro X and HyperX Cloud II are two very similar gaming headphones, but the Logitech have more features that gamers will appreciate. They are also slightly better-built thanks to their detachable cables. The Logitech also sound better and more detailed in the treble range. They come with a mobile-friendly cable that lets you control your music too, which makes them even more versatile. On the other hand, the Cloud II have channel mixing and their boom microphone performs slightly better, but HyperX doesn’t offer as many customization options as what you can find in the Logitech G Hub app.
The Logitech G Pro X are slightly better gaming headphones than the HyperX Cloud Alpha. The audio reproduction of the G Pro X is slightly better, noticeably in the treble range. Also, the microphone sounds slightly better right out-of-the-box. The biggest difference between both headphones is the fact that the G Pro X have the most complete companion software for gaming headphones that allows plenty of customization while the Alpha doesn't have an app.
The Logitech G Pro X are better gaming headphones than the Logitech G Pro Gaming Headset model. It is more comfortable and noticeably better built with high-end materials. While the G Pro model doesn’t have access to the G Hub app, they have a better sounding microphone, though they don’t have any customization options. The G Pro X have the Blue Voice technology and offer multiple customization options inside the app. The Logitech G Pro X are more versatile and feel like a more premium pair of headphones.
The SteelSeries Arctis 7 2019 Edition Wireless are better gaming headphones than the Logitech G Pro X. Their wireless design offers more freedom, without sacrificing too much on latency. They also have channel mixing and great battery life. On the other hand, the Logitech feel more comfortable and premium. Their app also offers more customization options for sound and the microphone, which is great. If you prefer a wired connection for gaming and don’t want to manage battery life, then the Logitech might be a better option overall.
The Logitech G935 Wireless Gaming Headset are slightly better gaming headphones than the Logitech G Pro X thanks to their wireless design. They also have a great sound profile, but you can EQ both headphones to your liking in the G Hub software. However, if you don’t mind having a wired connection to your gaming platform, the G Pro X have a noticeably better sounding microphone and are more comfortable. They also feel very durable and come with multiple cables. The Logitech G935 have mappable buttons, which is a nice feature in their app that the G Pro X don’t have.
