The Logitech G935 are good wireless gaming headphones that have great sound quality. They are the wireless variant of the Logitech G635 and they are very similar in design. The G935 are comfortable but can feel a bit tight on some heads. Their bulky design also isn't ideal for outdoor use, and they don't isolate much noise. Their boom microphone is decent for gaming but doesn’t sound as clear as the G635’s. On the upside, they're compatible with the Logitech G Hub software, which is one of the best and most complete apps we’ve tested so far. Their wireless component offers more freedom to move around than the G635, which some may prefer.

Design

The Logitech G935 are the wireless variant of the Logitech G635 and are fairly similar to the Logitech G933. These gaming headphones are decently designed but are one of the bulkiest headphones we’ve tested so far. They are still comfortable to wear during long gaming sessions, but some may find them a bit tight. This also means they trap a good amount of heat inside the cups. On the upside, they have mappable buttons and offer plenty of gamer-friendly controls. You can use them wirelessly with their USB dongle, which you can store inside the cups when on-the-move. You can also use them passively with the included audio cable.

Style

The Logitech G935 are very similar in design to the wired Logitech G635, except they're wireless. Both are similar models to the Logitech G633 and Logitech G933. Their overall look is still the same, with a bulky design that shows without a doubt that they're gaming headphones. They are not very outdoor-friendly, and when powered by their USB cable, you get RGB lighting on the logo and a strip at the back of the ear cups. Their cups are large and more squared than most other gaming brands. You can also fold the microphone in to hide it, but they still won’t be great to use outside, even if you can use them with your phone.

7.5 Comfort
Weight : 0.85 lbs
Clamping Force
:
1.4 lbs

These headphones are as comfortable as the G635 model and are as tight as well. However, the padding is slightly different. Instead of mesh fabric, the G935 cups' padding is covered by pleather, which gives them a more high-end feel. The cups are large and spacious and should fit most ear sizes and shapes. They are comfortable to wear for a while, but if you have a larger-sized head, these could become uncomfortable rather quickly.

The Logitech G935 have a great control scheme for gamers. You have access to a volume wheel, a mic-mute button, and three mappable buttons that you can set to practically whatever you want inside their app. The top button isn’t an audio selector like the G635, but is rather a power switch to easily turn your headset on or off. The buttons offer great feedback and the ridges make it easier to distinguish different buttons, but it might take you a second to feel the surrounding buttons to be sure which one you're about to press.

5.0 Breathability
Avg.Temp.Difference : 9.2 C

These headphones are quite tight on the head and create a good seal around your ears, which means they trap a lot of heat inside the ear cups and won't allow much airflow. They won’t be suitable for sports as you’d sweat more than usual, and they weren't designed for this use case. You will feel a noticeable difference in temperature.

5.5 Portability
L : 8.0 "
W : 7.4 "
H : 3.1 "
Volume : 184 Cu. Inches
Transmitter required : N/A

Like most gaming headphones, the G935 aren’t very portable. They take a lot of space and don’t fold into a more compact format. On the upside, the cups swivel to lay flat, which makes it easier to slide them inside a bag, but that’s about it. Overall, these gaming headphones should stay around your gaming setup and won’t be ideal to use on-the-go.

0 Case
Type : No case
L : N/A
W : N/A
H : N/A
Volume : N/A

They don’t come with a case or traveling pouch to protect them.

7.5 Build Quality

The Logitech G935 are built the same way the G635 are, which means that they also don’t seem to offer any major improvement over the previous G633 and G933 models when it comes to build quality. They are still well-built but are slightly plasticky. They also squeak a bit when manipulating the headphones. On the upside, the headband is flexible, yet sturdy thanks to a reinforcing metal frame. The cups are quite dense, and the backplates are magnetic and easily removable. On the G935, you have room inside the ear cups to store the USB dongle, which is useful.

6.5 Stability

These headphones are fairly tight on the head but still sway quite a bit with head movements. They won’t be ideal for sports activities, but this shouldn’t be a problem during a casual gaming session. On the upside, they are wireless, meaning you don’t have to worry about a cable getting stuck or hooked on something, which could yank the headphones off your head.

Cable
Detachable : Yes
Length : 5.3 ft
Connection : 1/8" TRRS

These headphones are wireless and come with a small USB dongle. If used wired, you can use them passively with their 1/8” TRRS audio cable and charge them with their micro-USB cable.

Sound

The Logitech G935 are great sounding closed-back gaming headphones. Their bass is extended and accurate, their mid-range is well-balanced and flat, and their treble is virtually flawless. However, their frequency response consistency is sub-par, which means they’ll perform differently on different users. Their bass tends to be slightly overemphasized, but you can easily EQ them inside their great app. These headphones are very versatile and will be suited for all music genres and will be great to reproduce video game effects as well.

8.4 Bass
Std. Err.
:
2.44 dB
Low-Frequency Extension
:
10 Hz
Low-Bass
:
1.75 dB
Mid-Bass
:
3.52 dB
High-Bass
:
2.23 dB

The G935 have a very good bass range performance. LFE is extended down to 10Hz, which is great. The entire range's response is virtually flat but slightly overemphasized. The 3.5dB bump in mid-bass will add a bit of excess on the punch of bass guitars and kick of drums. Also, their bass delivery varies significantly across users, and is sensitive to the quality of fit, seal, and whether you wear glasses. The response here represents the average bass response and your experience may vary.

8.7 Mid
Std. Err.
:
1.73 dB
Low-Mid
:
-0.06 dB
Mid-Mid
:
-1.19 dB
High-Mid
:
-1.48 dB

The mid-range of the G935 is very good. The response throughout the range is well-balanced and flat, which means vocals and leads will be accurately reproduced. The response is slightly underemphasized, but this won’t be noticeable for most people.

8.8 Treble

:
2.44 dB
Low-Treble
:
0.28 dB
Mid-Treble
:
-0.28 dB
High-Treble
:

Their treble performance is also very good. The response is nearly flawless up to 10kHz but slightly uneven. Also, their treble delivery varies noticeably across users. The response here represents the average response and your experience may vary.

5.6 Frequency Response Consistency
Avg. Std. Deviation
:
1.12 dB

The Logitech G935 have sub-par frequency response consistency. In the bass range, we measured about 12dB of maximum deviation at 20Hz, which is very noticeable. These headphones were performing consistently across most test subjects but people with glasses may experience a drop in bass if they create a break in the seal of the headphones around your ears. Their treble consistency is also sub-par, with more than 10dB of deviation measured around 7kHz, which may be due to the design of the cups.

8.4 Imaging
Weighted Group Delay
:
0.34
Weighted Amplitude Mismatch
:
0.81
Weighted Frequency Mismatch
:
1.74
Weighted Phase Mismatch
:
5.17

The imaging performance is great. Weighted group delay is at 0.34, which is very good, but the GD graph shows that the response crosses the audibility threshold around 50-60Hz. This could result in a bass that is a tad slow, but it's subtle enough that most people won't notice it. Additionally, the L/R drivers of our test unit were very well-matched in amplitude, frequency, and phase response. This is important for the accurate localization and placement of objects (like voice, instruments, and video game effects) in the stereo field. However, these results are only valid for our unit and yours may perform differently.

6.9 Soundstage
PRTF Accuracy (Std. Dev.)

Correlated Crosstalk
:
0.0 dB

The soundstage of the G935 is decent. The PRTF graph shows a good amount of pinna interaction and activation, which is good, but its accuracy isn’t great. There is also not a notch present around the 10kHz region either. Therefore, their soundstage may be perceived as relatively large, but unnatural and located inside the head. Their closed-back design also means they won’t be open-sounding as open-back headphones.

8.4 Total Harmonic Distortion
Weighted THD @ 90
:
0.88
Weighted THD @ 100
:
0.309

The harmonic distortion performance of the Logitech G935 is very good. The THD in the bass range is within good limits and doesn’t get too elevated in the mid and treble ranges. The peak around 2.3kHz could make these frequencies slightly harsh and impure. On the upside, there is no big jump in THD at 100 dB SPL, which could be due to the flexibility of the drivers under heavier loads or could be due to the noise floor of our testing.

5.0

Isolation

The Logitech G935 don't block a lot of noise, so they won't be the ideal option if you game in a particularly loud environment. Their pleather cups might isolate a bit better than the mesh fabric of the wired G635, but the difference is barely noticeable. These headphones let noise seep into your audio, which may be bothersome if you're at a competitive event and need to focus on the multiplayer voice chat or in-game audio. Unfortunately, they're also a bit leaky at higher volumes, so they may be distracting to anyone next to you in quieter conditions. They won't be the ideal headphones to game at night without distracting people in the same room.

4.3 Noise Isolation

Like most Logitech gaming headphones, the G935's isolation performance is poor. They don’t have a noise cancelling feature and only passively isolate. In the bass range, occupied by the rumble of airplane and bus engines, they achieve no isolation, which means they won’t be great for commuting. In the mid-range, important for blocking out speech, they achieve about 6dB of isolation, which is barely noticeable. In the treble range, responsible for sharp sounds like S and Ts and A/C system noises, they isolate by more than 28dB, which is good.

6.3 Leakage
Leakage Audio
:
Overall Leakage @ 1ft
:
43.28 dB

The Logitech G935 have an okay leakage performance. The significant portion of their leakage sits between 400Hz and 2kHz, which is a relatively narrow range. The overall level of the leakage is a bit loud, too. With the music at 100dB SPL, the leakage at 1 foot away averages at 43dB and peaks at around 58dB, which is a bit above the noise floor of most offices.

7.1

Detachable Boom
:
No

The Logitech G935 have a decent boom mic. In quiet environments, speech recorded or transmitted with this microphone sounds natural and detailed, but thin, bright, and slightly piercing. In noisy situations, it is able to separate speech from background noise to a decent degree, but might struggle a bit in extremely loud situations, like a big gaming event.

6.6 Recording Quality

Gain
:
29.17 dB

The Logitech G935’s boom mic has a decent recording quality. The LFE (low-frequency extension) of 289Hz indicates a recorded/transmitted speech that sounds quite bright and thin. The HFE (high-frequency extension) is at 6.7kHz, which results in clear, detailed speech, but may lack a bit of air. The response between the LFE and HFE points gets elevated in the treble range, resulting in a quite sharp-sounding speech.

This microphone performs better than what the score shows since LFE might not be as important for everyone. Overall, it definitely has better recording quality than most Bluetooth headphones microphones, which have a similar score but would sound less clear due to a lower HFE. However, although the wired G635's mic scores lower, it sounds a bit better than the G935's, which you can compare for yourself by listening to the audio files.

7.6 Noise Handling
Speech + Pink Noise :
Speech + Subway Noise :
SpNR
:
25.12 dB

The boom microphone of the Logitech G935 is decent at noise handling. It achieved a speech-to-noise ratio of 25dB in our SpNR test. This indicates that it can separate speech from ambient noise to a decent degree in most situations but may not be suited for the loudest situations.

7.3

Active Features

The wireless Logitech G935 have a decent 13-hour battery life when turning off the RGB lighting, which should be enough for most gamers. According to the specs sheet, you should get about 8 hours when using the default lighting. On the upside, you can use them while charging and passively, even if the battery is dead. When connected to a PC, you also have access to Logitech G Hub, which offers tons of controls and customization options. This is one of the most complete and useful apps we’ve tested so far.

The G935 have a decent 13-hour battery life that should be enough for long gaming sessions. We’ve measured the battery life with all the RGB lighting turned off, so if you do want the lights, you may experience shorter battery life, which is expected to be around 8 hours according to the specs sheet. They also need quite a bit of time to charge; about 4 hours. On the upside, you can still use them via the USB dongle while they are charging with their USB cable. They can also be used passively, even if the battery is dead, with the 1/8” TRRS cable, but you won’t have access to their app and active features.

Like the wired G635, the wireless G935 are compatible with the new Logitech G Hub app available on Windows and Mac. This software is one of the most complete ones we’ve ever tested. It offers tons of customization options like surround sound, a 10-band EQ, and control over your Lightsync RGB lighting. You also get tons of options and control for the sound and microphone of the headset. You can map the buttons of the headphones to different sound profiles, functions, and commands related to your PC system settings. You can also launch programs, your favorite games, set macros, or even manage your music, which is very convenient. However, you can only map one command to a button and only have three buttons to map, which isn't a lot considering all the available options.

Connectivity

The Logitech G935 are the wireless variant of the G635. These gaming headphones come with a USB adapter that offers great wireless range and amazingly low latency. You can also use them wired with the included 1/8” TRRS cable, which will give you audio and mic support when connected to console controllers as well. However, they don’t support audio via USB, meaning you’ll have to use the dongle on top of the USB cable to use them while charging. Also, their dongle has fewer connection options than that of the Logitech G933.

The Logitech G935 offer fewer connection options than the previous G933. They don’t come with a TRRS to RCA cable and the dongle doesn’t have any inputs. The G935 can only be used wirelessly via their USB dongle on PC and PS4 for full audio and microphone support, and only support audio on Xbox One.

9.1 Wireless Range

The Logitech G935 have great wireless range. With 61ft of range, this should be more than enough to play video games from your couch without having any issues. You could also walk to the next room over without too many problems. However, wireless range is dependent on many factors, so your results may vary.

Compared to other Headphones

The Logitech G935 are good gaming headphones that set themselves apart by their great audio reproduction, mappable buttons, and their amazing companion software that offers tons of controls and customization options. However, their microphone is slightly bright when compared to other gaming headsets. See our recommendations for the best gaming headsets, the best wireless gaming headsets, and the best gaming headsets for PC.

Logitech G933 Wireless Gaming Headset
SEE PRICE
Amazon.com

The Logitech G935 and Logitech G933 are very similar in design, but the G935 is not necessarily an upgrade over the G933, especially if you already have the first model. Some features like the in-line remote controls or the inputs on the dongle are now gone on the newer model. On the other hand, the G935 have better sound quality, but you can EQ both headsets inside the G Hub app. The G935 have better wireless range and very minimal latency. The G933 also has a slightly better sounding microphone, which is better for online games.

SteelSeries Arctis 7 2019 Edition Wireless
SEE PRICE
Amazon.com

The SteelSeries Arctis 7 2019 Edition Wireless are better gaming headphones than the Logitech G935. They are better-built headphones and don’t feel as plasticky. Their microphone is noticeably better and offers a better speech recording quality. They also have about twice the battery life of the G935. On the other hand, the Logitech headphones have a better app that offers more controls and they also have RGB lighting, if that’s something you’re interested in having. The G935 also has better out-of-the-box sound quality, although you can EQ both headsets in their respective apps.

Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset
SEE PRICE
Amazon.com

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.

Logitech G635 Gaming Headset
SEE PRICE
Amazon.com

The Logitech G935 and Logitech G635 are practically the same headphones, but the G935 are wireless while the G635 are wired. You get the same design and fit on both headsets, but the G935 have faux leather cup padding and the G635 have a mesh-like fabric. If you want the freedom of a wireless headset, go with the G935, but if you don’t want to manage battery life, the G635 will be a better option. There’s also a difference in the microphone recording quality and by listening to playback, we hear the G635 microphone as better even if it scores lower.

Astro A50 Wireless
SEE PRICE
Amazon.com

The Astro A50 Wireless are slightly better gaming headphones than the Logitech G935. They feel more comfortable and are slightly better built than the G935. The microphone is also better, especially in louder environments. On the other hand, you can use the Logitech wired with any platform while the A50s only connect to their dock wirelessly, although it offers dock charging and more inputs. Also, the Logitech G Hub is a more complete software and offers more options than the Astro Command Center.

Conclusion

7.0 Mixed Usage

Decent for mixed usage. The G935 have great audio reproduction and are a good option for critical listening thanks to their versatile sound profile. However, these over-ears are not breathable and their design is quite bulky, meaning they won’t be ideal for commuting and sports. They also practically don’t isolate any noise so they won’t be good for commuting. On the upside, they block a decent amount of work environment noise and can be used in an office. Their very low latency is also usable for watching TV content on consoles without any delay, and their microphone is decent for online games as well.

7.9 Critical Listening

Very good for critical listening. Their bass is extended and accurate, their mid-range is well-balanced and flat, and their treble is virtually flawless. However, their frequency response consistency is sub-par, which means they’ll perform differently on different users and their bass is slightly overemphasized, but you can easily EQ them inside their great app. These headphones are very versatile and will be suited for all music genres and will be great to reproduce video game effects as well.

6.3 Commute/Travel

Okay for commuting. These headphones are very bulky, which won’t be ideal to travel around with. They also don’t isolate against engine rumbles, which isn’t great for this use case. Also, you won’t be able to use this headset wirelessly, unless you travel with a laptop that you can connect the dongle to. Overall, these headphones won’t be the best option for this use case.

6.4 Sports/Fitness

Mediocre for sports. Their design is quite massive and very tight on the head. While this means they are fairly stable, they shouldn’t be used for sports. They will make you sweat more than usual and you won’t be able to use them wirelessly during workouts unless you train at home near your PC.

6.8 Office

Passable for the office. They don’t isolate too much low-end noise but are quite decent against A/C systems. However, you won’t be able to blast your music as they can get a bit leaky at high volumes, which would disturb your surrounding colleagues. On the upside, their battery life should be long enough for a normal workday and you can also use them while charging, which is convenient.

7.0 TV

Decent for watching TV. They are decently comfortable but might be tight for some during long movies. Unfortunately, you can’t use their USB dongle directly plugged in a TV, so you’ll have to use a compatible console or PC, or use them wired, but you might have to use an audio cable extension to watch from your couch.

7.7 Gaming

Good for gaming. These headphones have great sound and very low latency, even with the USB dongle. They are comfortable to wear for a while but can feel a bit tight for some. Also, their microphone is decent for online games and these headphones are compatible with the G Hub app, which offers tons of customization and controls. They are intended and designed to be gaming headphones and are quite versatile as they can be used with every console and PC.
