The Logitech G335 are basic wired gaming headphones. They're lightweight, comfortable, and feel decently well-built. Their boom microphone also offers decent recording quality and does a good job isolating speech from background noise. They also have a fairly consistent audio reproduction. That said, they lack any sort of sound customization features, like an in-app EQ or built-in audio presets. They also have poor noise isolation capability and leak quite a bit of audio.

Our Verdict

7.2 Neutral Sound

The Logitech G335 are decent for neutral sound. Fans of action-heavy games may want a little more thump and rumble, but in-game dialogue and vocals and lead instruments in music should sound fairly clear and present within the mix, if sometimes harsh. They also have fairly consistent audio reproduction, so you shouldn't perceive their bass or treble response very differently on different listening sessions. Unfortunately, they lack any sound customization features.

Pros
  • Consistent audio reproduction.
Cons
  • No sound customization features.
4.5 Commute/Travel

The Logitech G335 are a bad option for commuting and traveling, though this isn't their intended use case. While they're lightweight and comfortable enough to wear throughout extended trips, they do a poor job of isolating against bass-range ambient noise, like the rumble of bus and plane engines, as well as the chatter of fellow commuters. They're also somewhat bulky and don't come with a carrying case to protect them from the elements.

Pros
  • Lightweight, comfortable design.
Cons
  • Poor noise isolation capability.
  • Limited control scheme.
5.5 Sports/Fitness

The Logitech G335 are inadequate for sports and fitness, though they aren't designed for this kind of use. They're likely to fall off your head if you move around too vigorously, and they're somewhat bulky. Their non-detachable 1/8" TRRS audio cable can also easily get snagged on exercise equipment and yank them from your ears. In addition, their rudimentary control scheme doesn't have any call or music management inputs, so you may need to pull out your phone to make any adjustments, ruining your rhythm.

Pros
  • Lightweight, comfortable design.
Cons
  • Unstable fit.
  • Limited control scheme.
5.7 Office

The Logitech G335 are sub-par for office use. They leak quite a bit of audio, so nearby coworkers are likely to be annoyed if you listen to content at a high volume. They also do a terrible job of isolating you from background chatter. That said, they're impressively comfortable, and their wired design ensures that you don't have to worry about running out of charge midway through your workday.

Pros
  • Lightweight, comfortable design.
Cons
  • Poor noise isolation capability.
  • High levels of audio leakage.
5.3 Wireless Gaming

The Logitech G335 are wired-only headphones and you can't use them for wireless gaming.

7.4 Wired Gaming

The Logitech G335 are a decent choice for wired gaming. They're comfortable enough to wear throughout extended gaming sessions, thanks to their well-padded ear cups and elastic headband. Their 1/8" TRRS cable provides full audio and mic compatibility with PCs as well as Xbox and PlayStation consoles with virtually nonexistent latency. Their microphone also transmits your voice fairly clearly to your teammates online, even in noisy environments. Unfortunately, they lack any sound customization features since they don't have companion software.

Pros
  • Lightweight, comfortable design.
  • Decent mic recording quality.
  • Good mic noise handling capability.
Cons
  • No sound customization features.
  • Poor noise isolation capability.
  • Limited control scheme.
6.4 Phone Calls

The Logitech G335 are passable for making phone calls. Their boom mic delivers decent recording quality, as it makes your voice sound clear and natural but also somewhat thin. It also does a good job isolating speech from background noise, so people on the other end of the line should understand you clearly, even if you're in a noisy environment. Unfortunately, they do a poor job of blocking out ambient noise, so you may have some trouble hearing what's being said if you're calling from a loud or crowded setting. They also lack any onboard call management controls.

Pros
  • Decent mic recording quality.
  • Good mic noise handling capability.
Cons
  • Poor noise isolation capability.
  • Limited control scheme.
  • 7.2 Neutral Sound
  • 4.5 Commute/Travel
  • 5.5 Sports/Fitness

Style

The Logitech G335 Headset is somewhat similar in appearance to the Logitech G733 LIGHTSPEED Wireless, with a slightly swept-back ski-band headband and angular ear cups. The 'White' and 'Mint' color variants feature contrast-color padding, which is good if you aren't a fan of the 'Black' variant's monochrome appearance. You can even purchase new elastic headbands and microphone covers from Logitech to give your headphones a bit of added flair.

The Logitech G335 are comfortable headphones. Their elastic headband does a good job of distributing their weight, though they aren't very heavy to begin with. The ear cup padding also feels nice against the sides of your head. Unfortunately, even at its maximum extension point, the elastic headband might still feel a little tight on users with large heads. The ear cups also don't offer a very broad range of articulation.

The Logitech G335 Headset has a somewhat limited, gaming-focused control scheme. There's a volume adjustment wheel with minimum and maximum increments on the left ear cup. You can mute the boom microphone by flipping it up, and you should hear a clicking noise to let you know when it's been muted or unmuted. Unfortunately, there are no controls for music playback or channel mixing.

Build Quality

The Logitech G335 feel decently well-made. They're made mainly of a mix of glossy and matte-finish plastic, with cloth-lined ear cup padding and a soft elastic headband. They feel quite sturdy for the most part, though the ear cup hinges and yokes could potentially break if you were to apply too much force. Their audio cable also isn't detachable, so you can't just swap it out if it gets damaged. These headphones also lack an IP rating for dust or water resistance, though we don't currently test for this.

Design
Stability

The Logitech G335 are adequately stable for what they're designed for. They shouldn't fall off if you wear them while gaming, but any vigorous head movements can loosen their fit or cause them to fall from your head. Their non-detachable audio cable can also snag on objects if you wear them on the go.

Sound Profile
Bass Amount
-3.45 dB
Treble Amount
-0.45 dB

The Logitech G335 headset has a somewhat bright sound profile. The bass response is slightly underemphasized, so you may be disappointed if you want to hear a bit of added thump and rumble in action-heavy games. The dip in the low-mids also thins out some dialogue as well as vocals and lead instruments. The headset also lacks any sound customization features, like an in-app EQ or built-in EQ presets.

Frequency Response Consistency
Avg. Std. Deviation
0.51 dB

This headset's frequency response consistency is good. While bass and treble response differs slightly depending on the ear cups' seal against your head, this deviation isn't too noticeable overall, so audio reproduction should be perceived as fairly consistent.

The Logitech G335 have decent mid accuracy. The dip in the low-mids can thin out in-game dialogue or vocals and lead instruments while listening to music. Thankfully, the mostly flat mid-mid and high-mid ranges allow for detailed-sounding dialogue and instruments that are present within the mix.

This headset has satisfactory treble accuracy. The uneven low-treble range gives vocals and lead instruments an alternatively harsh and veiled quality, while the slight overemphasis in the mid-treble can make some sibilants, like S and T sounds, somewhat piercing.

6.3
Sound
Peaks/Dips
Peaks
2.58 dB
Dips
1.6 dB

The Logitech G335 Headset has mediocre peaks and dips performance. The peak in the high-bass yields excess boominess and can muddy some vocals and lead instruments. The dip in the low mids thins out vocals and lead instruments. The peak in the high-mids, which carries over into the low-treble, gives vocals and lead instruments a boxy, harsh quality. The sharp dip and rise in the low-treble range to the mid-treble range can make sibilants sound alternatively dull and piercing.

Imaging
Weighted Group Delay
0.25

Weighted Frequency Mismatch
2.91

This headset has great stereo imaging performance. The weighted group delay falls entirely beneath the audibility threshold, resulting in a tight bass and transparent treble. The L/R drivers are also somewhat well-matched in regards to amplitude and phase response. While there is a bump in the phase response that extends from the mid-bass to low-mid range, it isn't too noticeable in most regular content. Some frequency mismatch is present, meaning that you may notice a few holes in the stereo image. That said, these results are only valid for our test unit, and your experience may vary.

The Logitech G335 have an alright passive soundstage. It's fairly spacious, especially compared to most closed-back headphones, but it's still likely to be perceived as somewhat small and located within your head as opposed to coming from speakers placed in front of you. It's also unlikely to be perceived as being as open as that of open-back headphones.

These headphones have decent weighted harmonic distortion performance. Some distortion is present in low-mid range at high listening volumes as well as the low-treble range at moderate listening volumes. That said, the rest of the range falls within good limits, resulting in a mostly clean and pure audio reproduction.

The Logitech G335 have a bad noise isolation performance. They do very little to block out bass or mid-range ambient noise, like the rumble of bus engines or the chatter of people nearby. Thankfully, they do a good job of isolating you from higher-pitched background noise, like the hum of an AC unit.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The Logitech G335 are available in three different base color variants: 'Black', 'White', and 'Mint'. We tested the 'Black' variant, and you can see its label here.

Let us know in the discussions if you come across another variant.

Compared To Other Headphones

The Logitech G335 are basic wired gaming headphones. They're lightweight, comfortable, and decently well-made. That said, they do a bad job of blocking out background noise and leak a lot of audio. They also don't have any sound customization features, as unlike the Logitech G433 Gaming Headset, they aren't compatible with the Logitech G HUB companion software.

If you're looking for alternatives, take a look at our list of recommendations of the best gaming headsets, the best gaming headsets under $100, and the best headsets for PS5.

Razer BlackShark V2 X

The Logitech G335 are better than the Razer BlackShark V2 X. The Logitech are comfier, better-built, deliver audio more consistently, and have a less dark sound profile. Meanwhile, the Razer have a more stable fit, block out more ambient noise, offer superior overall mic performance, and are compatible with a virtual soundstage feature for 7.1 surround sound, though it should be noted that we don't currently test this function and that the software needed to enable it needs to be downloaded separately.

Logitech G433 Gaming Headset

The Logitech G433 Gaming Headset is better than the Logitech G335. The G433 have a more comprehensive control scheme, come with a carrying pouch, have a better-balanced default sound profile, and block out a little more ambient noise. They also leak less audio, deliver superior overall mic performance, and have an additional analog to USB-A adapter. They also have a companion app with a fairly broad range of sound customization features. Conversely, the G335 are a little more comfortable and deliver audio more consistently.

Logitech G733 LIGHTSPEED Wireless

The Logitech G733 LIGHTSPEED Wireless and Logitech G335 differ somewhat in terms of intended use case. The G733 are wireless, so you don't need to be worried about an audio cable snagging on something while using them. They also have a better-balanced default sound profile, leak less audio, and have a companion app with a very wide range of customization features. Meanwhile, the G335 are wired, resulting in lower audio latency, a virtually unlimited runtime, and superior overall mic performance.

HyperX Cloud Stinger

The HyperX Cloud Stinger and Logitech G335 each have their own strengths, so one may suit you better than the other depending on your preferences. The HyperX have a more bass-heavy sound profile, block out more ambient noise, leak less audio, and offer better overall mic performance. Conversely, the Logitech are comfier, have an easier-to-use control scheme, and deliver audio more consistently.

Logitech G432 Gaming Headset

The Logitech G432 Gaming Headset is slightly better than the Logitech G335. The G432 have a slightly better-balanced sound profile, block out more ambient noise, leak less audio, deliver better overall mic performance. They're compatible with the Logitech G HUB companion software too, which allows you to adjust their audio reproduction with a graphic EQ as well as mic sidetone and virtual surround sound. Meanwhile, the G335 are more comfortable, have a superior control scheme, deliver audio more consistently, and feel better-built.

Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset

The Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset is better for wired gaming than the Logitech G335. The G Pro X come with two swappable audio cables, one with an in-line remote for pausing and playing media playback and the other with a mic-mute switch and volume wheel, not to mention a separate analog to USB-A adapter that allows you to save and apply any changes made in the Logitech G HUB companion software when using them with PCs and PS4/PS5 consoles. The G Pro X  are also better-built, block out more ambient noise, leak less audio, and offer superior mic performance. Conversely, the G335 deliver audio more consistently.

 

HyperX Cloud 2/Cloud II

The HyperX Cloud 2/Cloud II are better wired gaming headphones than the Logitech G335. The HyperX come with an analog to USB-A adapter with an in-line remote, which allows you to adjust mic level and volume on-the-fly or enable the Dolby 7.1 surround sound feature. They're also better-built, block out more ambient noise, leak less audio, and deliver superior mic recording quality and noise handling performance. Meanwhile, the Logitech have a more consistent audio delivery.

SteelSeries Arctis 1

The Logitech G335 are slightly better for wired gaming than the SteelSeries Arctis 1. The Logitech are comfier, better-built, more stable on the head, and deliver audio more consistently. Meanwhile, the SteelSeries block out more ambient noise, leak less audio, and offer superior mic recording quality and noise handling capability.

Razer BlackShark V2

The Razer BlackShark V2 are more well-rounded than the Logitech G335. The Razer come with a soft carrying pouch, are more stable on your head, have a better-balanced sound profile, block out more ambient noise, leak less audio, and are compatible with the Razer Synapse companion software. In addition, their USB sound card allows you to save any of your preferences made on the companion software and apply them when using the headphones with PCs as well as PS4 and PS5 consoles. Conversely, the Logitech are comfier, more sturdily-built, deliver audio more consistently, and offer better overall mic performance.

Razer Kraken X

The Logitech G335 are better for wired gaming than the Razer Kraken X. The Logitech are more comfortable to wear, feel better-built, deliver audio more consistently, and have a less dark sound profile. However, the Razer are more stable on the head, block out more ambient noise, and have a boom mic that does a better job of transmitting speech clearly and isolating it from background noise.

Logitech G430 Gaming Headset

The Logitech G430 Gaming Headset is better than the Logitech G335 for wired gaming. The G430 have a companion app with a good selection of sound customization features, including a graphic EQ, leak less audio, and have better microphone noise handling capability. However, the G335 are comfier, block out more ambient noise, and are compatible with a wider range of devices thanks to their 1/8" TRRS connection, as opposed to the G430's 1/8" TRS cable and analog to USB-A adapter, which doesn't allow for full mic and audio compatibility with Xbox One consoles.

HyperX Cloud Alpha

The HyperX Cloud Alpha are better wired gaming headphones than the Logitech G335. The HyperX are slightly more compact, come with a carrying pouch, feel notably better-built, leak less audio, and deliver superior overall mic performance. However, the Logitech have a more consistent audio delivery and a slightly more expansive passive soundstage.

HyperX Cloud Stinger S

The HyperX Cloud Stinger S and Logitech G335 are somewhat well-matched wired gaming headsets. The HyperX have a slightly better-balanced default sound profile, block out more ambient noise, and leak less audio. They also deliver better overall mic performance and have companion software, though it's somewhat limited. Meanwhile, the Logitech are comfier, slightly smaller, and deliver audio more consistently.
