Logitech G230 review: specs and price

Compared to other Logitech PC and gaming headsets such as the G933 or the G533, the G230 is a great mid-level headset offering standard gaming features such as stereo speakers and passive noise reduction. For nearly half the price of other Logitech gaming headsets, you’re able to enjoy premium audio features suitable to most casual game players.

The Logitech G230 headset features a sound-isolating design to reduce background noise while being immersed in the game. The foldable, noise-canceling microphone attached to the headset also ensures that you and the other people you’re playing with can experience high-quality in-game communication.

The frequency range for the G230 is the same as the more high-end models produced by  Logitech, meaning that the only difference between this model and the more expensive models is the inclusion of surround sound. In contrast, the G230 model does include stereo speakers, but it doesn’t count on Dolby Digital surround sound. It’s not a wireless gaming headset, which isn’t necessarily a point of contention for most casual gamers.
