The Logitech G735 Wireless are part of this manufacturer's 'Aurora Collection' lineup, which includes a matching Logitech G705 Wireless Gaming Mouse, Logitech G715 Wireless Keyboard, wrist pad, and a headphone carrying case, all of which you have to purchase separately. These sleek white over-ears target gamers with small heads, as they're a little more compact than other gaming headphones on the market. You can also purchase ear cup pads and a detachable microphone in two different colors if you find the white to be too stark.

Our Verdict

7.0 Neutral Sound

The Logitech G735 aren't intended for neutral sound. Their bass-heavy sound profile bloats and muddies vocals and lead instruments, while a dip in their low-treble veils their clarity and detail. Additionally, the headphones are very prone to inconsistencies in audio delivery, and depending on your fit, positioning, and seal, you may experience a different sound each time you use them. On the upside, you can customize their sound using their companion app's graphic EQ and presets.

Pros
  • Customizable via graphic EQ in companion software.
Cons
  • Very prone to inconsistencies in bass and treble delivery.
6.5 Commute/Travel

The Logitech G735 are gaming headphones and may not be the best choice for commuting and traveling. They're a bit bulky, lack call and music-related controls, and you have to purchase the carrying case separately. They're also not designed to block background sound, so you'll hear all the low rumbles of bus engines and passenger chit-chat. On the upside, they have a comfortable fit and have long-lasting continuous battery life.

Pros
  • Great build quality and comfortable fit.
  • Over 28-hour continuous battery life.
Cons
  • Poor noise isolation performance.
  • No call/music-related controls.
7.0 Sports/Fitness

The Logitech G735 aren't intended for sports and fitness. While they have a decently stable design, they can move around your head. They also lack call and music-related controls, so you can't skip songs without pulling out your device. They don't have an IP rating either, which is on-par for over-ear gaming headphones, but that means they're prone to damage by water and sweat. On the upside, they have a comfortable and well-built design.

Pros
  • Great build quality and comfortable fit.
Cons
  • No call/music-related controls.
6.8 Office

The Logitech G735 are okay if you want to use gaming headphones at work. These headphones have a comfortable fit and last over 28 hours continuously, which is great for long days at the office. If you need to take calls, their mic does a good overall job of capturing your voice, so clients and teammates hear you clearly. They support multi-device pairing, and you can adjust the level of audio between your smartphone and PC using the built-in toggle. On the downside, they don't block out office chatter very well and leak a lot of audio at high volumes, which can be annoying for coworkers around you.

Pros
  • Great build quality and comfortable fit.
  • Over 28-hour continuous battery life.
Cons
  • Poor noise isolation performance.
  • No call/music-related controls.
7.6 Wireless Gaming

The Logitech G735 are good for wireless gaming. These over-ears have very low latency via their USB dongle, are comfortable enough for long dungeon crawls, and last over 28 hours continuously. Their bass-heavy sound profile is customizable via their companion software too. If you like to chat with others while you game, the boom mic does a good job of ensuring that you sound clear. They even support Bluetooth, meaning you can receive audio from your console and smartphone simultaneously. On the downside, these headphones aren't compatible with Xbox consoles.

Pros
  • Great build quality and comfortable fit.
  • Good overall microphone performance.
  • Very low wireless latency.
  • Over 28-hour continuous battery life.
Cons
  • Very prone to inconsistencies in bass and treble delivery.
7.6 Wired Gaming

The Logitech G735 are good for wired gaming. You can use them wired, but keep in mind that you'll need a purchase an AUX cable separately. However, if that's not a deal-breaker for you, they have a comfortable fit suitable for long gaming sessions and a bass-heavy sound profile that can help bring out sound effects like explosions in your gameplay. However, their sound muddies dialogue and lead instruments, so you may want to take advantage of their companion software that offers a graphic EQ and presets to help you adjust their sound.

Pros
  • Great build quality and comfortable fit.
  • Good overall microphone performance.
Cons
  • Very prone to inconsistencies in bass and treble delivery.
7.1 Phone Calls

The Logitech G735 are decent for phone calls. These headphones have a detachable boom mic that you can customize using their companion software. That said, by default, the mic offers good overall performance, ensuring you're heard clearly. If you're talking from a noisy environment like a busy office, the mic can separate speech from background noise decently well, but there's still some ambient sound present in the audio. Unfortunately, they're not designed to block out background sound and struggle to block out office chatter.

Pros
  • Good overall microphone performance.
Cons
  • Poor noise isolation performance.

Test Results

Style

The Logitech G735 have a sleek all-white design. The ear cups have a thin band of RGB lighting surrounding the padding, and you can customize the colors to suit your style. If you want more of a different look, you can also swap out the ear cup padding and boom microphone for a set in either of the following colors: 'Pink Haze' or 'Green Flash'. However, the frame of the headphones only comes in 'White Haze'. This color also easily shows dirt and makeup transfer.

The Logitech G735 have a comfortable fit. They're designed for people with smaller heads, which is nice if you find more traditional gaming headsets to run a bit large. The padding on the headband feels plush, while the ear cups are spacious. The headphones don't put too much pressure on your head, either. However, the headband and hinges are a bit stiff, and wearing them for long periods can trap heat in, causing your ears to feel warm.

The Logitech G735's controls are disappointing. Since they're gaming headphones, they don't have any call or music-related controls. That said, their physical controls provide a lot of helpful functions that provide audio feedback in the form of beeps. The buttons are also easy to use and feel responsive. When you're using the wireless dongle, the LED lights glow cyan, and when using the AUX port, the light turns white. On the left ear cup, you can find the power button, infinite volume wheel, and mic mute button. The right ear cup has a Bluetooth button and an audio mixing 'Source Balance' toggle, which allows you to adjust how much of one audio source you hear.

The Logitech G735 don't come with a case, but you can purchase a matching heart-shaped hard case with a strap directly from the manufacturer. It has a partially molded interior to fit the headphones, and there's a closeable compartment to store the audio cables when not in use.

Design
Build Quality

The Logitech G735 have great build quality. They're made of a combination of faux leather, plastic, and aluminum, which makes them feel sleek and sturdy. They have a couple of inputs, so you can connect them as you wish. Their hinges are also somewhat similar in feel to the Apple AirPods Max Wireless, though they have less mobility. That said, the microphone can easily detach.

Design
Stability

These headphones have decent stability. If you tend to move your head a lot while gaming, they can shift in placement. However, they won't fall off. They're not really designed for use during physical exercise, though.

The Logitech G735 have a bass-heavy sound profile that delivers intense thump, rumble, and boom to your gameplay. This sound can help bring out sound effects like footsteps, but it bloats dialogue and instruments. Unfortunately, we also noticed a rattling in the right driver, specifically in the bass range. It's particularly noticeable in games with explosions, but it's harder to spot in music. That said, this issue may just be limited to our unit. If you've experienced this issue, please let us know in the discussions.

These headphones are extremely prone to inconsistencies in audio delivery, so it's important to take the time to ensure a good overall fit. If you have thick hair or wear glasses, you may especially notice a drop in bass, as this can rupture the headphones' seal on your head.

The Logitech G735's bass accuracy is okay. It's overemphasized across the range, resulting in intense thump, rumble, and boom added to your audio. It can make sound effects like explosions seem more exciting and prominent, but unfortunately, this also muddies and clutters dialogue and lead instruments.

The Logitech G735's mid accuracy is great. There's some overemphasis coming from the bass range into the low-mid, which clutters dialogue and lead instruments. However, the rest of the range is relatively flat. It means that in background tracks like Ambient Beach from Kirby and the Forgotten Land, instruments like the piano and flute are still present and detailed within the mix.

The Logitech G735's treble accuracy is mediocre. The response is a bit uneven, so the upper harmonics of vocals and lead instruments sound veiled and lacking in detail. However, sibilants like hi-hats are bright without being piercing.

Sound

Dips
2.28 dB

The Logitech G735's peaks and dips performance is mediocre. The left and right driver aren't always in sync, so a bump in the low-bass affects the right driver more than the left, resulting in extra thump and boom. Another bump in the high-bass warms mixes, but a dip between the low to mid-mid affects the left driver more, thinning out and nudging vocals and lead instruments to the back of the mix. Another peak across the high-mid to low-treble really affects the left driver and harshens the upper harmonics of dialogue and instruments before a steep dip in the low-treble robs them of their detail. A massive peak in the mid-treble makes sibilants like cymbals painful to hear.

The imaging performance is great. Logitech tends to have good quality control when it comes to higher-end headphones. Although our unit's left and right drivers are slightly mismatched, the deviation is quite minor. There are a few small peaks in the bass range of the group delay, indicating that the bass is somewhat loose. However, you won't encounter issues while gaming, and objects like footsteps and dialogue are accurately placed in the stereo image.

The Logitech G735's passive soundstage performance is okay. The soundstage seems wide but a bit unnatural. The headphones also struggle to produce an out-of-head feeling, and since they're closed-back, they don't seem spacious or open.

The Logitech G735 are compatible with Windows Sonic Spatial Audio and Dolby Atmos. With Windows Sonic Spatial Audio, you can adjust where sound is coming from and access different spatial audio presets to create a more immersive audio experience. You can connect these headphones to Dolby Atmos, but you'll need a license to use it. Dolby Atmos virtually creates different audio channels to simulate the feeling of sound coming from all around you rather than from the L/R drivers.

The Logitech G735's weighted harmonic distortion performance is satisfactory. They produce more distortion at regular volumes than at high volumes, especially in the treble range. However, distortion can be a bit hard to hear. Unfortunately, there's a rattling noise coming from our unit's right driver. It produces distortion at high volumes, but it's minor.

The Logitech G725 have poor noise isolation, but that's normal from gaming headphones. They're not designed to block out the low rumble of bus engines. When it comes to more gamer-centric noise like ambient chatter, they still struggle to block out this kind of sound, though they do a significantly better job reducing the hum of computer fans.

The Logitech G735 have a sub-par leakage performance. They bleed a lot of audio, though a lot of it is concentrated in the mid to treble range. It means that escaping audio sounds somewhat thin. If you want to game at high volumes, keep in mind that they leak audio, which can annoy others around you.

The boom microphone has great recording quality. Your voice sounds clear and natural, so you won't have trouble being understood clearly. You can also use the BLUE VO!CE feature to further improve mic quality. The manufacturer advertises this feature to filter out noise and make your voice sound clearer. You can hear our recorded speech file using this feature here.

There's white noise present in our recording. It's the noise made from our testing rig's mouth speaker, which is picked up by this headphones' mic. The recording quality score isn't affected by this noise, though.

This mic has a customizable noise handling performance, thanks to the BLUE VO!CE feature that's available in their companion software. There are also a lot of other settings like gain and EQ presets in software. With all of these features off, they have a satisfactory noise handling performance. It can separate your voice from moderate background noise, but loud sounds are still somewhat present in the audio. However, the mic does a better job of separating pink noise and subway noise from speech with the BLUE VO!CE feature on.

The Logitech G735 have excellent battery performance. The manufacturer advertises them to last 16 hours continuously with the RGB lighting turned on and with volume at 50%. However, we measured over 28 hours using a similar setup but with volume at over 90%. Battery life can vary depending on usage and settings, though, so you'll likely encounter fluctuations in battery performance. If you're worried about battery life, they have an auto-off timer to help conserve battery life when not in use. They can also be used passively in a pinch, but Logitech doesn't supply an AUX cable in the box, so you'll need to provide one of your own.

Logitech G HUB software is great. Unlike the Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED Gaming Headset, they have a 5-band graphic EQ instead of 10-band. However, they still offer helpful features like mic volume, sidetone level, adjustable RGB lighting, and BLUE VO!CE, which allows you to tweak the mic's settings to ensure that your voice sounds clearest. On the downside, there have been a lot of reports from users regarding a wide array of problems when 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 experience this issue with our own unit, if you want to share your experience using Logitech G HUB with this product, please leave a comment in the discussions.

The Logitech G735 have great Bluetooth connectivity. They can connect to two different devices in a variety of ways by swapping around the dongle, AUX port, and Bluetooth, which is great if you want to stay connected to your PC and console at the same time. They also have low latency when connected to iOS and Android devices, ensuring your audio and visuals stay in sync. However, they have very high latency on PCs, which can interrupt movie streaming.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The Logitech G735 come in one color variant: 'White Mist', and you can see our model's label here. You can also purchase colorful ear pads and a boom mic in the following colors: 'Pink Dawn' and 'Green Flash'. If you come across another variant of these headphones, please let us know in the discussions, and we'll update our review.

Compared To Other Headphones

The Logitech G735 are sleek gaming headphones designed for people with smaller heads. They have a similarly comfortable fit to the Logitech G733 LIGHTSPEED Wireless but are better built, and you can even purchase ear cup padding and a boom mic in two different colors if you don't like the all-white look. They have significantly low latency and support Bluetooth, making them a solid choice for gamers who want to listen to two different audio sources at the same time. However, their boom mic doesn't quite stack up to other similarly-priced wireless gaming headphones like the HyperX Cloud Alpha Wireless.

If you're still looking for more headphones, check out our recommendations for the best gaming headsets, the best wireless gaming headsets, and the best headsets for PS5.

Logitech G733 LIGHTSPEED Wireless

The Logitech G735 Wireless are better gaming headphones than the Logitech G733 LIGHTSPEED Wireless. While both headphones are comfortable, the G735 support Bluetooth and have significantly lower non-Bluetooth wireless latency, ensuring that your audio and visuals stay in sync while gaming. They're also better-built, have a longer-lasting continuous battery life, and their mic offers superior overall performance. However, the G733 LIGHTSPEED have a more neutral default sound profile, which some users may prefer.

Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED Gaming Headset

The Logitech G735 Wireless are more versatile gaming headphones than the Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED Gaming Headset. While both headphones have evenly matched boom mic performances, the G735 support Bluetooth, so you can receive audio from your console and smartphone at the same time, and they're better-built and have lower wireless latency. You can also use these headphones wired, but they don't come with an AUX cable, so you'll need to buy one separately. However, the G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED are more comfortable, have more consistent audio delivery, and their default sound is more neutral, which some users may prefer.

HyperX Cloud Alpha Wireless

The HyperX Cloud Alpha Wireless are better wireless gaming headphones than the Logitech G735 Wireless. While both headphones are well-built, the HyperX are more comfortable, have a more neutral default sound profile, which some users may prefer, and they have an outstandingly longer continuous battery life. Their boom mic also offers a slightly better overall performance. However, the Logitech have lower latency, support Bluetooth, and you can use them wired, though keep in mind that you'll have to buy the AUX cable separately.

Razer Barracuda Pro Wireless

The Razer Barracuda Pro Wireless and the Logitech G735 Wireless are versatile gaming headphones, but the Logitech have a slight overall edge. The Logitech are better-built, have a more immersive passive soundstage, and their mic offers better overall performance. They also have lower non-Bluetooth wireless latency, and you can even use them wired, although you'll need to purchase this audio cable separately. However, the Razer have a more neutral default sound profile and can block out significantly more ambient noise thanks to their ANC system.
