As I mentioned earlier, I used the Logitech Pro X for around 30 hours. Throughout this time, I did extensive testing in games such as Apex Legends and listened to hours of music. I also played around the microphone for many hours to see how I could get the best quality out of it.
The Logitech Pro X has very natural audio to it, and it worked wonders throughout all of the games that I played. While plummeting to the ground in Apex Legends from the dropship, I was able to clearly hear all of my teammate's calls, as well as gunfire off in the distance. Each of the sounds was very distinct and crisp, allowing me to differentiate between everything I heard easily.
Throughout my time playing Apex Legends, I noticed that I could easily pinpoint the exact location of enemy players by simply listening for footsteps or gunshots. Gunfire also sounded blissful, and I think this was due to the overall sound being somewhat "natural" and not oversaturated with bass or highs. Each of the weapons I fired had a nice ring to it. Grenade explosion sounds popped while not having too much bass behind them, and finally, the cries of my enemies dying were glorious.
The audio tone was pleasant to listen to, and yet came with a nice punch. This also goes for music listening, so let's jump into that. I listened to many different types of songs with the Logitech Pro X, from rap that had plenty of bass, to acoustic melody to soundtracks from movies. Across the board, the Pro X kept up. I found no issues or a diminishing return in audio quality with listening to music. This surprised me quite a lot, as with most gaming headsets, you pay the price for music not sounding as good, but in-game audio sounding great. This simply isn't the case for the Pro X.
Movies sounded great as well, I could clearly hear all of the lines from the actors, while also thoroughly enjoying the soundtrack.
Since Logitech picked up Blue as a company, I expected the Pro X's microphone to be fantastic. Did it meet my expectations? It met my expectations and flew right past them.
This microphone is great, BUT it is only great if you enable Blue VO!CE in the software. The change in microphone quality between not having Blue VO!CE enabled, and having it enabled is night vs. day. I used the Logitech G Hub software to hear my voice back, and it sounded fantastic. I tweaked with some of the settings in the software and got it to sound even better.
If you can't be bothered fiddling around in the setting to get the best out of the Pro X's microphone, you can always just enable Broadcaster 1, or Broadcaster 2 in the presets. Enabling either of these will give your voice an amazing boost in quality, and will only take you about three mouse clicks.
