Just like all my headset reviews, I used the Logitech Pro X for around 30+ hours to gather my thoughts on it. I used it in various scenarios such as gaming, music listening, talking, and more. Before I get into the performance, let's talk about the design.
Logitech has opted for a minimalistic design for the Pro X, and I personally believe that it looks absolutely fantastic. The smooth coating on the earcups, alongside the brushed circles that are paired with the Logitech 'G' symbol, makes for a simple, yet gorgeous headset. The leather headband was snug on the top of my head with ample padding, and while using it didn't cause me any issues at all.
The same goes for the leather earcups, and while the earcups can't be swiveled horizontally, they pressed firmly against my head and were extremely comfortable. As for the cloth earcups, I noticed a slight downgrade in sound quality - bass in particular. This is most likely due to the sound having a much easier time escaping the earcup, in comparison to the leather option.
Logitech chose the cable for the microphone mute button and volume wheel, and while I thought this was a peculiar choice at first, I then noticed the clip. This clip allows users to attach the volume wheel and microphone to their shirt for ease of access. Most companies usually put the mute microphone button and volume wheel on the headset itself, but after using both with the attached clip, it works just fine.
All in all, the design Logitech Pro X is phenomenal, it hardly has any downsides, and I think if you are into a minimalistic kind of look, you will absolutely love them.
For those after a link to the Logitech G Hub, that can be downloaded here. Now, how good is the Logitech G Hub? It's very in-depth, has ample customization options, tuning options, and a toggle to enable Blue VO!CE, which is essential.
Above will be the first screen you see when you open up the Logitech G Hub software. Clicking on the headset will take you to the next image where the customization begins.
On the left-hand side, you can see three tab options; Microphone, Equalizer, and Acoustics. The first you will be presented with is the Microphone. In this tab, you can customize the microphone in a variety of different ways. You can change the microphone gain, output volume, and add presets to your voice when Blue VO!CE is enabled.
Let's talk Blue VO!CE. When using the Logitech Pro X with the provided microphone, it's essential that you enable Blue VO!CE. Enabling this feature increases the overall microphone quality in every way possible, while also giving you the ability to be able to further customize your voice with presets, noise reductions, compressors, and more.
In this image, you can see that I have enabled Blue VO!CE, and selected the Broadcaster 1. There are limited settings on the right-hand side that allow users to change the volume of low, mid, and highs. Another great feature of this software is the 'Mic Test' option that is in the center of the image. Users can record their voice for a period of time and then play it back to them. This nifty feature allows users to accurately get their microphone voice to the desired sound quality before jumping into a game. I love this feature, and I cannot overstate how useful it is.
Next, we have an image that has the "Advanced Controls" option ticked. If users tick this option, you will be presented with much more in-depth options that allow for that specific fine-tuning if that's what you are after. Also present in this image is the Blue VO!CE presets, located at the bottom left. Here is where users can select a preset voice for their microphone. The range of the presets is extensive, and I recommend anyone to have a play with them to feel out what they like best. I think Broadcaster 1 and 2 sounded the best for my voice.
Moving on, we have the Equalizer tab. In this section of the software, you can tweak your sound to whatever you like. There's also the option to add preset EQ's to your headset, and Logitech has gone out of their way to include the presets for pro-gamers such as TSM Bjergsen, TSM Myth and more.
Next is the Acoustic section of the software. In this part, users can adjust the overall output volume, microphone volume, and sidetone. You can also enable surround sound here, this is something I wouldn't recommend, but I'll get into why later.
If you do choose to enable surround sound, then you will be presented with this screen. Here you can adjust your surround sound by changing the volume of each individual virtual speaker. A nice touch by Logitech, but overall not something I'd personally bother doing.
