The Logitech G535 LIGHTSPEED Wireless are gaming headphones with very low latency, thanks to their USB wireless dongle. Like most gaming headphones from this manufacturer, they're compatible with Logitech G HUB software, which allows you to customize their otherwise neutral sound to your liking using the graphic EQ plus presets. They also have over 35 hours of continuous playback time, which is great for long gaming marathons. However, their non-detachable boom mic offers an only okay overall performance, and your voice lacks depth and body. The headphones also block out almost no background noise and leak a lot of audio at high volumes, which can disturb others around you if you're gaming in a shared space.
The Logitech G535 are great for neutral sound. Out of the box, they have a fairly neutral sound profile that's versatile for most kinds of audio content. While they're lacking a thumpy low-bass, and their treble is a bit recessed, you can adjust their sound to your liking using their companion software's graphic EQ and presets. They also have a decent passive soundstage that feels like sound is coming from speakers placed in the room around you, rather than from inside your head, which can help immerse you in your audio. However, they're prone to inconsistencies in audio delivery, so it's important to take the time to adjust their fit.
The Logitech G535 are disappointing for commute and travel. They're gaming headphones with a bulky design and a non-detachable boom mic. You can only use them with their wireless USB dongle, limiting which devices you can connect them to. They struggle to block out background noise like the low rumble of bus and plane engines. On the upside, their fit is comfortable, and their over 35 hours of continuous battery life easily lasts through long days on the go.
The Logitech G535 are mediocre for sports and fitness, though they're not for this purpose. You can only use them with their wireless USB dongle, so if you want to use them with your smartphone, you'll need an adapter. They also have a bulky design, lack call and music-related controls, and can move around your head with moderate head movements. That said, they're comfortable and decently well-built.
The Logitech G535 are okay for office use. These headphones use a wireless USB dongle that you can plug into your PC. Their over 35 hours of continuous battery life lasts through long days at the office, and they have a comfortable fit. However, they don't block out background noise like office chatter, they leak a lot of audio at high volumes, and their gamer-centric design includes a non-detachable boom mic, which stands out from the crowd.
The Logitech G535 LIGHTSPEED are good for wireless gaming. Thanks to their wireless USB dongle, they have low latency to keep your audio and visuals in sync while you're gaming. Their companion software also offers customization features like a graphic EQ plus presets to help you adjust their otherwise neutral sound to suit your tastes. If you like to game with others, their boom mic can separate your voice from moderate ambient noise, although the recording quality is just okay. On the downside, the headphones are prone to inconsistencies in audio delivery, so it's important to take the time to adjust them on your head.
The Logitech G535 are wireless gaming headphones, and you can't use them wired.
The Logitech G535 are passable for phone calls. Their non-detachable boom mic can separate your voice from moderate background noise like traffic from an open window. However, the mic's recording quality is just okay as your voice lacks depth and body. The headphones also struggle to block out background noise, so if you're taking a call from a busy street, you can't hear the person on the other end of the line clearly.
The Logitech G535 come only in 'Black' and you can see our model's label here. If you come across another variant of these headphones, please let us know in the discussions, and we'll update our review.
The Logitech G535 are wireless gaming headphones part of this manufacturer's LIGHTSPEED lineup. Like the Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED Gaming Headset, they have very low latency, ensuring that your audio and visuals stay in sync while gaming. They're also compatible with Logitech G HUB software, which offers a graphic EQ and presets to help you customize their fairly neutral and balanced sound to your liking. However, if you like to game with others, their boom mic's overall performance falls a bit short compared to other gaming headphones like the Astro A50 Gen 4 Wireless 2019.
The Logitech G535 LIGHTSPEED Wireless are better wireless gaming headphones than the Logitech G733 LIGHTSPEED Wireless. While both headphones are comfortable and decently well-built, the G535 reproduce audio more consistently, have a slightly more neutral sound profile, and their passive soundstage seems more open and natural. Their continuous battery life is much longer, and their non-Bluetooth wireless latency is lower too. However, the G733 leak less audio at high volumes.
The Logitech G535 LIGHTSPEED Wireless and the Logitech G533 Wireless are similarly performing wireless gaming headphones. While both headphones are comfortable and have very low non-Bluetooth wireless latency, the G535 have a more neutral sound profile and a significantly longer continuous battery life. The G533 are better built, create a more natural as well as out-of-head-feeling passive soundstage, and they support DTS 7.1. They also have a better overall boom mic performance.
The Logitech G535 LIGHTSPEED Wireless are better gaming headphones than the Logitech G435 LIGHTSPEED Wireless. While both headphones are lightweight and comfortable, the G535 are better-built, they have a longer-lasting continuous battery life, and their boom mic has better noise handling. They're also compatible with Logitech G HUB software, which offers a graphic EQ plus presets to help you customize their sound to your liking, and they have lower non-Bluetooth wireless latency. However, the G435 support Bluetooth, so you can connect them to your smartphone.
The Logitech G935 Wireless are more versatile gaming headphones than the Logitech G535 LIGHTSPEED Wireless. While both headphones are comfortable, the G935 are better-built, have a somewhat better overall boom mic performance, and you can use them wired via their 1/8" TRRS audio cable and wirelessly. However, although the G535 are wireless-only gaming headphones, they have lower non-Bluetooth wireless latency, and their passive soundstage seems more open and wide.
The Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED Gaming Headset and the Logitech G535 LIGHTSPEED Wireless are similarly performing gaming headphones, so depending on your preferences, you may prefer either one. The G PRO X are more comfortable, better-built, and their mic offers a better recording quality. However, the G535 have a better battery performance, and their non-Bluetooth wireless latency is lower.
The Logitech G535 LIGHTSPEED Wireless are better than the HyperX Cloud III. The Logitech offer a better-balanced default sound profile, with more bass to bring out sound effects in games. They provide lower latency with their USB dongle. They also create a wide, open-seeming passive soundstage, which helps create a more immersive listening experience. The Cloud III are wired headphones; you might prefer them for online games since they have better mic performance. They're also sturdier and more comfortable.
The SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless are more versatile gaming headphones than the Logitech G535 LIGHTSPEED Wireless. While both headphones are comfortable, the SteelSeries have a more neutral sound profile, and a significantly better boom mic performance. Their wireless transmitter base also allows you to adjust your settings on the fly or charge their extra battery cartridge. They support Bluetooth too, which is handy if you want to stay connected to your console and your phone at the same time, and you can use them wired via their 1/8" TRRS cable. However, the Logitech have a longer continuous battery life.
The Logitech G535 look similar to other headphones in the LIGHTSPEED lineup with rectangular ear cups and a mostly black plastic frame. Like the Logitech G733 LIGHTSPEED Wireless, they have a ski-band headband design with a reversible fabric strap. One side of the strap is mostly blue, and the other side is mostly purple. That said, the headphones only come in one color: 'Black'.
The Logitech G535 have a comfortable fit. They're fairly light, the ski band headband design distributes weight well, and they don't clamp onto your ears too tightly. You can also adjust the hinges to help accommodate larger heads. However, the ear cups have a limited range of motion, and the headphones themselves are a bit big, so they may not fit you well if you have a small head. In addition, the headband strap has a limited range of adjustment, as there are only two settings that you can use to tweak its height.
The Logitech G535 have sub-par controls. They're very simple in design and lack call and music-related controls like play and pause. That said, the controls are still easy to use. There's an on/off button, mic mute when you flip the boom mic upwards, and an infinite volume wheel that beeps once you've reached max volume. However, there isn't any feedback to let you know when you reach the minimum volume, and the wheel is very sensitive, so you can accidentally change the volume if you brush your hand against it.
These headphones aren't very portable, which is normal for gaming headphones. Unfortunately, although they don't weigh too much, they have a bulky design that can't fold or swivel to reduce their footprint. You also need to bring their wireless USB dongle with you to use them.
The Logitech G535 have a decent build quality. They're mostly made of lightweight plastic with a cloth headband strap and a silicone-like flexible mic. While they feel like they should survive a couple of accidental drops without taking too much damage, the middle of the headband and the yokes seem like weak points of the build.
The Logitech G535 are reasonably stable. They shouldn't move around while you're gaming at your desk or couch. However, since they're not for physical activity, even small head shakes can make the headphones move around your head. That said, their wireless design eliminates the chance of the audio cable snagging on something and pulling them off of your head.
The Logitech G535 have a fairly neutral and well-balanced sound profile. Although they lack a bit of thumpy low-bass, they have a touch of extra boom to help emphasize sound effects like footsteps. Vocals and lead instruments are still clear, making them suitable for dialogue and soundtracks.
Note: There have been reports that these headphones don't get very loud. We also experienced issues getting our unit to reach 100dB, which we don't experience with other Logitech headphones. A user was also concerned that installing G HUB lowered the headset's volume and possibly changed the frequency response. When we ran a pass with the same seating without the software installed and with it installed, we noticed that the sound level decreased by 5.6 dBA. That said, both frequency responses are quite well-matched, and while there's a very slight deviation in the mid-bass range, it's minimal, and you'll notice the difference in sound level more.
The Logitech G535 have passable frequency response consistency. Their audio delivery depends on the fit, seal, and positioning of the headphones on your head. If you have thick hair or glasses, you may notice a small drop in bass as these features can break the ear cups' seal.
The bass accuracy is great. Although the low-bass is very underemphasized and mixes lack thump and rumble, the mid and high-bass are overemphasized. As a result, mixes have a bit of extra punch, body, and boom. However, this doesn't overwhelm vocals or lead instruments too much.
The Logitech G535 have excellent mid accuracy. The range is fairly neutral and flat. The low-mid is a bit underemphasized, so mixes sound a bit thin. While vocals and lead instruments are slightly nudged to the back of your mix, they still sound clear and detailed.
These headphones have very good treble accuracy. The range is slightly underemphasized, so the upper harmonics of vocals and lead instruments are slightly veiled, while sibilants like hi-hats are a bit dull.
The Logitech G535 LIGHTSPEED's peaks and dips performance is good. A large peak in the bass range adds extra boom and punch while a dip in the low-mid thins out your mix. The right driver has a peak between the high-mid and low-treble, making vocals and lead instruments a bit harsh. Another peak in the mid-treble affects both drivers and makes sibilants like cymbals piercing.
The imaging performance is great. The group delay falls below the audibility threshold, resulting in tight bass and transparent treble reproduction. The L/R drivers are also well-matched in amplitude, which helps balance the stereo image. However, there's some mismatch present in phase and frequency response. The mid-range sounds like it's slightly centered to the left, and it can be noticeable with real-life content. That said, imaging can vary across units and can indicate a manufacturer's quality control and ergonomics.
The Logitech G535's passive soundstage performance is decent. Although they have a closed-back design, their passive soundstage still seems open, natural, and wide. Sound is perceived as coming from speakers placed in the room around you rather than from inside your head.
These headphones are compatible with Window Sonic Spatial Audio, PS5's Tempest 3D AudioTech, and Dolby Atmos. However, you need a license to use Dolby Atmos.
The weighted harmonic distortion performance is very good. Although there's a small peak in the low-treble, it can be hard to hear with real-life content. That said, the rest of the frequency response falls within acceptable limits, resulting in clean and pure audio reproduction.
These are the settings used to test the Logitech G535 LIGHTSPEED. Our results are only valid when used in this configuration.
The Logitech G535 have terrible noise isolation. Although they have a closed-back design, they can't block out the low rumble of bus and plane engines or ambient chatter. They can cut down the high-pitched hum of an AC unit, though.
Note: These headphones have a 'Noise Removal' toggle in their companion software. However, it's unclear what this feature does. There isn't a difference in noise isolation when this feature is on or off.
The leakage performance is sub-par. Leakage is mostly concentrated between the mid to treble range, which sounds somewhat full-bodied. As a result, if you're listening to audio at high volumes, others around you can hear it, even in noisier environments like an office.
The Logitech G535's boom mic has a fair recording quality. Your voice sounds natural and clear. However, it also lacks a lot of body.
The boom mic's noise handling performance is decent. The mic can separate your voice from background noise well. Even when there's loud noise like traffic from an open window, your voice still sounds clear.
Note: These headphones have a 'Noise Removal' toggle in their companion software. However, it's unclear what this feature does. There isn't a difference in noise handling when this feature is on or off.
The Logitech G535 have an excellent battery performance. They're advertised to last 33 hours continuously, and we measured just a bit over this. They also have an adjustable auto-off timer to help conserve battery life when you're not using them. While you can still receive audio while charging, they don't have an AUX port, so you can't use them passively.
These headphones are compatible with the Logitech G HUB software. It's compatible with both Windows and macOS, although the macOS version doesn't have EQ presets or the 10-band EQ. That said, if you're using the Windows version, you can access bass and treble adjustments, a 10-band graphic EQ with different presets, and even create your own presets. You can also adjust the sidetone level and mic level. There's a 'Noise Removal' toggle, but it doesn't make a difference in noise isolation or noise handling when on or off. However, there have been user reports of various problems trying to use the Logitech G HUB software. This includes but isn't limited to startup issues, freezing, and connection issues with some devices. Even though we didn't encounter issues with this software, if you'd like to share your experiences, let us know in the discussions.
The Logitech G535 have great non-Bluetooth wireless connectivity. They have much lower latency than the Logitech G435 LIGHTSPEED Wireless, ensuring your audio and visuals stay in sync while gaming.
These headphones come with a USB-A to USB-C cable to recharge them. However, they lack an AUX port and don't support an analog connection.
The Logitech G535 are fully compatible with PCs via their wireless USB dongle.
You can connect these headphones with your PS4 or PS5 by using their wireless USB dongle for full audio and mic compatibility.
