Pros:-Wireless -Comfortable -Surround feature works well
Cons:-Software is buggy -Wireless connection is unstable
The Bottom Line: I would not recommend the G930 headset due to the frustrating problems I encountered with mine; at least not until Logitech fixes the well-documented problems with their software.
I bought the Logitech G930 Wireless Gaming Headset because I wanted a wireless headset to use with Ventrilo. The G930's customizable G-buttons are what drove me to this headset, as I was able to set one of them as a push to talk key in Ventrilo for when I want to talk when not at my keyboard.
The G930 Headset comes with a USB receiver for wireless functionality. The box also contains a base for the receiver with its own USB cable connected that can be used to charge the headset. Logitech has added the G930 to their Logitech Gaming Software application which can be used with other G-series devices such as the G510 keyboard.
With the Logitech Gaming Software the user can customize the G-keys to perform just about any task they wish. They can be used to control various media players, Voice over IP programs, and also comes with customized macros for popular PC games. The keys can also be programmed to launch specific applications or to perform keystrokes. There is also a built-in battery meter which will alert the user when the G930 battery gets low.
In addition to the three customizable G-keys, the G930 has volume control and a microphone mute button built onto the headset. The microphone will also automatically mute when rotated to the up position.
While the Logitech Gaming Software worked excellent initially, I soon ran into a problem where it would freeze wheneven I woke my Windows 7 PC from Sleep Mode. After a visit to the Logitech forums I learned this issue is common to most users. As of this writing the issue has not been addressed by Logitech. I was forced to revert back to the older Logitech legacy software and the separate G930 software in order to use my G-devices.
Another problem I encountered with the G930 headset was constant disconnects. About every 10 minutes the headset would lose connection with the receiver and be dead for around 5 seconds. This occurred despite the fact that the receiver was only three feet away from the headset with no obstructions in between.
I actually exchanged my first G930 headset for a different one and tried them on multiple PCs and still experienced the same problems.
