These are reviews about Logitech headphones and earphones. Logitech was first incorporated in Switzerland in 1981. The industry started by making computer mice which, at that time, was a real novelty. The company has come a long way since then. It now employs more than 9,000 persons, working in more than 100 countries around the world. Since the early, humble beginning, Logitech has reinvented the computer mouse many times, and has also expanded into many areas of technology. Included among their thousands of digital products are security systems, gamebords, TV remotes, speakers webcams, keyboards, and, of course headphones.
Logitech may have the widest selection of headphones and earphones of any digital electronic company. Most units are quite inexpensive. Some cost less than $10, while others cost more than $500. The vast majority are cheap but good quality headphones. There are many kinds of headsets with microphone and remote. There is a large selection of wireless headphones and of gaming headphones with special features. There is a vast inventory of ear buds of all kinds.
It would be impossible to make a detailed review of every Logitech headphone product. Some products have been discontinued, and other new products are being added all the time. Of course, prices are also constantly changing, but in the opinion of this site, Amazon usually gives the lowest price for most products. Listed below are a few reviews of the best selling and most popular headphones by Logitech.
The Logitech wireless gaming headset G930 uses 7.1 surround sound to create a realistic illusion that makes the gamer feel like he is in the center of the action of the game that he is playing. It costs about $100 on Amazon (a discount of about $60 off the list price), and Logitech G930 reviews give it a score of 3.8 stars out of 5. This is a wireless rf headset. Instead of using a Bluetooth wireless connection it uses its own special rf connection and technology, optimized for computer gaming to reduce lag, avoid signal loss, and, as much as possible, eliminate static. Soft, circumaural ear cushions with closed-back ear cups give it a high degree of sound isolation. Another feature that gamers love is the 6 voice morphing modes. Unfortunately, the Logitech wireless gaming headset G930 does not work well with Mac computers, and it can’t be used with cell phones. However, it is great to use with Skype or with anything you can do on a PC computer.

The headset charges through a usb cable, and a full charge lasts for about 6 hours.
