Logitech Pro X Gaming Headset with Blue Vo!ce Review / Test
Today we’re looking at the new Logitech Pro X Gaming Headset, with Blue Vo!ce software.
For this review, I have the microphone connected directly to my windows 10 machines using the provided usb soundcard with the gain set at ~58%, with a +0dB boost added in post, and the Blue voice software enabled.
If you are interested in this headset, it will set you back around $130 on amazon.

Performance / Features
The build quality of this headset feels well put together for a gaming headset. The headband and ear cups are plastic, while the adjustment and earcup brackets are made of metal. It actually reminds me a lot of the builld of the HyperX Cloud II.
As far as comfortability, the headphones are on ear, and have a somewhat firm clamp on your head. The headphones are flexible enough to fit probably everyone’s head. The ear cups don’t really rotate on the X-axis, but the Y-axis has a bit of rotation. The headband has plenty of padding and I had no issues with a pressure point on top of my head. The ear cups also have plenty of padding, however, the leatherette cups get a bit warm on the ear. You can easily replace them with the cloth to get a little bit better air flow.
The microphone frequency response of the microphone is listed as 100Hz - 10khz,and it sounds extremely bad. I don’t know how else to describe it except sounding like a phone. The polar pattern of this mic is cardioid which does a decent job at background noise rejection, but not the best.
The headphone frequency response is listed as 20Hz -20kHz, and it provides a very low mid prominent sound. It has a very dull sound with an unimpressive higher end. This leads to a dead sounding set of headphones.
The overall performance of this headset is sub par on all fronts. The headphones are unpleasant to listen to if you compare them to anything else. The lower frequencies are lacking, and it focusses on low mids, and the higher frequencies are dull and dead sounding. The microphone sounds like a telephone call, and even by adding the Blue Vo!ce software can’t fix it. At best, it sounds like a telephone with an insane amount of processing.
The microphone software does allow for real time processing to get better sound out of the headset microphone.
The headphones do not sound good. I understand this is a subjective point, but in my subjective opinion, it does not sound good.
The microphone is not good. They attempted to fix it with the Blue Vo!ce software, but it is not successful.
I do not recommend this headset at all. I say this because a headset is nothing more than a set of headphones and a microphone. This headset does not have good sounding headphones. This headset does not have a good sounding microphone. This means it’s not a good headset.
If you have any additional questions about this microphone, leave them on the youtube video, and I will try to reply ASAP.
