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.

Our Verdict

6.0 Mixed Usage

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.

  • Very comfortable and sturdy design.
  • Good audio reproduction.
  • Great microphone with lots of customization options.
  • Sub-par noise isolation.
  • Bulky design.
  • Bass and treble delivery varies significantly across users.
7.1 Neutral Sound

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.

5.3 Commute/Travel

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.

5.7 Sports/Fitness

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.

6.0 Office

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.

5.9 Wireless Gaming

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.

Test Results


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.

Weight 0.72 lbs
Clamping Force
1.2 lbs

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.

Avg.Temp.Difference 7 C

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.

Type Pouch
Volume N/A

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.

Build Quality

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.

Frequency Response Consistency
Avg. Std. Deviation
1.05 dB

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.

5.06 dB

The bass performance of the G Pro X is very good. Their low-bass is fairly even and neutral, resulting in an accurate amount of thump and rumble common to bass-heavy genres. Unfortunately, the response gets overemphasized higher in the bass range, adding a bit of boominess and muddiness to the overall sound. If you like to adjust the bass as you play, the HyperX Cloud Alpha S has adjustable bass sliders so you can find the right sound for you on-the-fly.

Mid Accuracy

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.

Treble Accuracy
Std. Err.
3.51 dB
-2.26 dB
-1.7 dB
-12.48 dB

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.

Weighted Group Delay
Weighted Amplitude Mismatch
Weighted Frequency Mismatch
Weighted Phase Mismatch

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.

Acoustic Space Excitation

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.

-11.97 dB
-33.22 dB

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.

Leakage Audio
Overall Leakage @ 1ft
36.49 dB

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 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.

Noise Handling
Speech + Pink Noise
Speech + Subway Noise
34.13 dB

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.

Compared to other headphones

Comparison picture

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. See our recommendations for the best gaming headsets and the best gaming headsets for PC, or if you're looking for something wireless, the best wireless gaming headsets.

HyperX Cloud Alpha

The Logitech G Pro X and the HyperX Cloud Alpha are similarly performing wired gaming headphones. While both headphones are comfortable and feel very well-built, the Logitech have a better in-line remote than the HyperX, which much easier-to-use controls. The sound profile of the Logitech is quite a bit more bass-heavy, but also is more detailed in the treble range than the HyperX. The microphone on both headphones works very well, but the recording quality of the HyperX is slightly better-balanced and natural sounding. One big advantage of the Logitech is the compatible software, which is excellent and offers a ton of customization options, including a graphic EQ for their sound reproduction. The Logitech also have a virtual 7.1 surround feature, though we don't test the effectiveness of this. 

SteelSeries Arctis 7 Wireless 2017

The SteelSeries Arctis 7 Wireless 2017 and the Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset are both good wired gaming headphones, although the SteelSeries are more versatile since you can use them wirelessly as well. The Logitech are more comfortable for long gaming sessions, though, and they feel even more durable. Their microphone doesn't perform as well as the SteelSeries' though, even though it's wired.

HyperX Cloud Alpha S

The Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset and the HyperX Cloud Alpha S are similarly-performing wired gaming headsets. They both have solid builds, they're both comfortable for long gaming sessions, and they both have the same connectivity with PC, PS4, and Xbox One. However, the Logitech have companion software with a graphic EQ and presets, which can help with their inconsistent sound delivery. On the other hand, while the HyperX also have a similarly inconsistent sound delivery, they lack an EQ, but they have a bass slider on each ear cup. They also have a slightly better performing microphone.

Razer BlackShark V2

The Razer BlackShark V2 and the Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset are very similar headphones, and depending on your listening habits, you may prefer one over the other. Both are gaming-oriented headphones that are compatible with software that lets you adjust the sound, the microphone settings, and access virtual surround sound mode. However, the Logitech have a better build quality and a more comfortable over-ear fit. Their microphone also has a better performance out-of-the-box. On the other hand, the Razer are better for neutral sound, and they have a more stable on-ear fit.

Astro A40 TR Headset + MixAmp Pro 2017

The Astro A40 TR Headset + MixAmp Pro 2017 are better-wired gaming headphones than the Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset. While they both have similarly good build quality, the Astro have an open-back design that helps to create a wider and spacious soundstage. However, this same design means they also leak more audio and isolate less noise than the closed-back design of the Logitech. The Astro also have a better overall performing microphone, which is great for multiplayer games, and their USB dongle can be used on the PS4 and Xbox One to receive full audio and microphone support unlike the Logitech's, which only offers full support for the PS4.

Logitech G Pro Gaming Headset

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.

SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless

The SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless and the Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset are both solid gaming headsets but serve different purposes. The Logitech is a traditional wired gaming headset, with a sturdy, durable design, reliable wired connection, and great boom mic. The SteelSeries are more feature-packed wireless gaming headphones, with a low-latency wireless transmitter that gives you access to an onboard EQ, channel mixing, and battery charging. They also support Bluetooth so you can mix in a voice chat from your phone into your game audio.

HyperX Cloud Flight

The HyperX Cloud Flight and the Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset are both good gaming headphones, but the HyperX are wireless while the Logitech are wired-only. The Logitech are also more comfortable, have better controls, and look and feel much better-built. The Logitech also have a less sharp and piercing sound reproduction, though both pairs of headphones are very susceptible to fit and seal, and people will experience their sound differently. While both headphones have a dedicated piece of companion software, the Logitech one offers much more customization options, including a graphic EQ and presets, making it much better.

Logitech G933 Wireless Gaming Headset

The Logitech G933 Wireless Gaming Headset and the Logitech G Pro X are both good gaming headphones but the G933 can be used wirelessly and are more customizable. They're not as comfortable as the G Pro X though and they feel more cheaply made.

Logitech G635 Gaming Headset

The Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset is a slightly better performing gaming headset than the Logitech G635 Gaming Headset. The G Pro X is slightly more comfortable, has better controls, and you can even switch between a detachable boom microphone and an in-line microphone. However, the G635 has a more even sound profile out-of-the-box, but its boom microphone doesn't perform as well as the G Pro X.

HyperX Cloud 2/Cloud II

The Logitech G Pro X and HyperX Cloud 2/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 HyperX have channel mixing and their boom microphone performs slightly better, but they don't offer as many customization options as what you can find in the Logitech G HUB app.

Logitech G935 Wireless Gaming Headset

The Logitech G935 Wireless Gaming Headset are slightly better gaming headphones than the Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset 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.

SteelSeries Arctis 7 2019 Edition Wireless

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.

SteelSeries Arctis 5 2019 Edition

The SteelSeries Arctis 5 2019 Edition and the Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset are both very good wired gaming headphones. They have similar sound profiles, mic performance, and customization options. The G Pro X feel significantly better-built, with a more premium design, but their USB adapter adds more latency than the SteelSeries'. This can be an issue for highly competitive gaming but is unlikely to otherwise be a problem.


The Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED Gaming Headset is a more versatile pair of headphones than the Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset. The LIGHTSPEED are wireless headphones, unlike the wired G Pro X. The LIGHTSPEED have a more neutral, slightly less bass-heavy default sound profile, and they have a better out-of-the-box microphone performance. That said, some users may prefer the wired design of the G Pro X, which is compatible with Xbox One, unlike the LIGHTSPEED. The G Pro X also has a better noise isolation performance, especially with voices and sharp sounds. 

Astro A40 TR Headset + MixAmp Pro 2019

The Astro A40 TR + MixAmp Pro 2019 is a better wired gaming headset than the Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset. Both have a balanced sound quality and comfortable design, but the open-back design of the Astro makes them sound more consistent and can be less fatiguing during long gaming sessions. The Logitech are much more customizable thanks to their companion software, but the Astro come with an excellent base station that gives you channel mixing and more connectivity options.

SteelSeries Arctis Pro GameDAC

The SteelSeries Arctis Pro GameDAC and the Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset are both similarly-performing wired gaming headphones that perform well. The Arctis feel a bit more stable, have a less bass-heavy default sound profile, and more wired connectivity options. On the other hand, the Logitech look and feel more comfortable and durable, and have a better control scheme. Both headphones have a boom mic that performs very well, but the Logitech's is detachable, which can be handy.

Logitech G433 Gaming Headset

The Logitech G433 Gaming Headset and the Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset are both very good wired gaming headsets, with the biggest difference between the two being their designs. The G Pro X have a much sleeker, more modern look. They're made with more premium materials and are also more comfortable. Both models otherwise perform quite similarly overall, although the G433 do have an edge in microphone performance.
