Like many Logitech wireless gaming headsets, the Pro X Wireless relies on a USB key to connect to your PC. This allows it to transmit sound that is more reliable and better than standard Bluetooth headsets. The company claims that its battery should last about 20 hours, which is close to what I saw during testing. Charge your headset from time to time – it’s a decent trade-off for being completely wireless.
The Pro X Wireless microphone connects to the 3.5mm port on the front of the left earphone. This is useful if you want to remove it completely while listening to music, but I̵7;d like to see a more convenient retractable device instead. It would also be nice to see the Blue microphone equipment in the microphone itself, but Logitech tells us it’s a pretty standard cardioid. Real magic is reserved for Logitech’s G Hub software, where you can switch to “Blue VO! CE” and select one of the various presets to record. You can also adjust a variety of tools, such as an all-terrain filter, deesser and compressor, and there is a basic equalizer for adjustment.
I wasn’t expecting much, but Blue VO! CE definitely adds a noticeable richness to my voice recordings. Of course, I would never be wrong with the results for a dedicated microphone, but it still sounds solid for gaming headsets. Hopefully, Logitech can get some actual Blue hardware into the next headset.
You’ll be able to capture the Logitech G Pro X Wireless Lightspeed when it hits stores in August. Priced at $ 200, it’s much more expensive than other solid wireless headsets, such as the 130 HyperX cloud flight. And if cable loss isn’t convincing to you, the wired Pro X is also significantly cheaper at $ 130.
