Dolby headphone 7.1 surround sound
Hear what you can’t see from up to seven discrete channels of audio data plus the Low Frequency Effects (LFE) channel—known as 7.1 surround sound. Dolby Headphone software perceptually positions each channel in the correct location to reproduce multi-channel content the way developers intended.
Three programmable G-Keys
You’ve got one-touch control over in-game elements like music, hot key macros and more with one-touch. G-keys are conveniently located on the left ear cup for easy access. Customize G-keys with easy-to-use Logitech Gaming Software.*
Padded comfort. Perfect fit.
Three swappable pads—thin, thick and contoured—let you personalize the headband for your most comfortable fit.
Full-speed, all-digital USB
In-game sound isn’t an effect. It’s a critical component of game play. Our USB headphones surround you with aural information. The sound is crisp and clear, and the jack on your sound card stays open for desktop speakers.
Quick-access on-ear audio controls
Keep your head in the game. Intuitive, no-look controls mean you can quickly adjust volume or surround sound and mute the microphone.
Noise-cancelling mic with mute light
Be heard loud and clear without the distraction of background noise. The mic picks up only your voice. Rotate the mic boom up and out of the way to mute. A glowing red indicator light provides a visual cue to your audio status and keeps you informed when the mic is muted.

With that said, if you're still interested in buying this, or any other Logitech product, be aware that there was a partnership between Screaming Bee and Logitech that provided additional functionality, such as 3d surround sound, and voice morphing. Logitech did not pursue extending the partnership with Screaming Bee, and has thus removed the functionality of surround sound. This is a key feature of the G35, and is probably the biggest reason anyone would buy them, but buyer beware - Logitech has removed from its drivers the ability to enable surround, and voice morphing, however it still advertises that it contains these features, even years after the contract ended.
Unfortunately, Logitech has gone downhill, (likely) in an effort to increase profits, and reduce costs. Logitech did not used to operate this way, at one time they were, in my opinion, the best accessory manufacturer.
The overall design is very nice, with an easy-to-use volume control, 3 programmable keys, a fold-down boom microphone that auto-mutes in the "up" position, along with comfortable ear and head pads. Sound quality is very good, and the 7.1 surround effect (when it works, see below) is amazing. Based on sound quality, comfort, and overall design -- these would get 5 stars. But it doesn't end there.
The surround decoding relies upon the Logitech Gaming System (LGS) software. Unfortunately, Logitech changed the design of LGS in recent versions, such that the G35 is only seen as a two-channel stereo device by Windows. A few software applications will ignore this, and continue to send full surround information to the headset. But most software will query windows and be told the G35 is a stereo-only device, and only output stereo encoded signals. So if you want the surround feature to fully function, you must install an "old" version of LGS, 8.58 or older. If you install the more recent 8.72 or 8.75, you'll get stereo only in most applications and games. *** UPDATE: After many failed attempts, Logitech has finally fixed the surround issue in LGS 8.81, released in March-2016. ***
The cord is horrible. I repeat, HORRIBLE. This stuff is so stiff you could almost make coat hangers from it. The exterior braid is so abrasive you could almost cut firewood with it. The cable kinks easily, drags on your clothing, chair, and desk, and seems to have an inbred talent for constantly getting in your way. Lest you think the G930 (wireless version of the G35) is the answer, you'll find out it has horrible connectivity issues. What temporary insanity possessed the engineers at Logitech and made them choose this cheap, stiff, horrible cable?? At the risk of invalidating my warranty, I will likely replace the cable -- which is no easy feat, thanks to glued components and soldered connections.
Others have noted problems with the plastic joints between the ear cups and head band. I have only had these for a week, so it is too early to tell if mine will crack, but I can certainly attest that the plastic pieces involved are thin and simply don't "look" up to the task. I will be treating these like fine crystal glassware, in the hopes mine will stay together. But come on Logitech, a couple small pieces of metal here would solve this pervasive problem while adding very little to the cost.
If they stay in one piece and you can tolerate the stiff cord, these are great! They are comfortable (except for the cord), have excellent sound, the microphone is crystal clear, the controls are convenient and easy to use. Could easily be a 5-star product, if Logitech would simply beef up the ear cup junctions, fix the surround driver, and provide a flexible cord.
My first set I had for years, the cheap leather on the pads was all gone from me using them so much. My problem became they would stop working from time to time and required me to unplug and plug them back into my computer. This was fine for awhile until the pads became unwearable. Having faith in logitech's products i ordered the same headset again and almost immediately the sound issues started again. The left side will completely cut out, until you reset the headset; the mic will stop working, until you reset the headset; it will stop producing sound altogether until you reset the headset. If my tower wasn't sitting next to me on it's own desk this would be a royal PITA to deal with.
When i bought my original set there was talk of a weak point of construction at the ear pad to the headband but in both sets i own i never had an issue.

Con: I don't know if it is just me, but I noticed an unbalance in the volume when i move the settings from dolby to stereo. (I double checked with my other headsets just to confirm that I wasn't going crazy). Maybe it's just my headset, but I feel that there is a higher volume on the right. But then, when would you ever turn off the digital dolby surround? ;)
Yes, I would totally buy this again!
They are the most comfortable headphones I've owned, swiveling and adjusting at every desirable point. Comparing the surround sound by disabling and enabling it does show the impact that it makes. I use these headphones for PvP gaming, and the fidelity of the audio has been flawless since the day that I bought them.
They're very comfy, though this is very subjective about anything really. They do have a "I swear bro, I'll snap in a second" feel to them, but they seem to be very durable and rigid. The plastic on the head rest is a little weird and the padding is a bit fussy, but otherwise is very good in a functional way. Maybe I just messed it up... too lazy to check. It works well for me.
Sound quality is good. I'd say better than my astros with deeper bass and high treble. Definitely an entry level 7.1 surround sound headset, but it feels more like a $200 pair than anything cheaper. Some people don't like the buttons on the side, but I've been using a Das Keyboard which has none of those "convenient" buttons you always hit when you don't want to, but I've personally found the buttons to my liking and are somewhat convenient. Only problem is I usually stream music, so the only useful things most of the time are the mute button and the volume knob.
The one thing I do like about the boom on the mic is that it feels rigid and it doesn't feel like it's going to go loose on me and always flop around on me like THOSE ASTROS I SPENT $350 ON. The mic is obviously not a top end mic or anything (which I will admit the Astros beat it on, it sounds like a studio mic almost), but it does it's job well with no static.
The drivers are a pain in the ass though. Holy crap. Save yourself some trouble; don't update to the newest ones, or if you already have and you have issues, downgrade them. Google G35 driver issue crackling. It's not a problem with the headset, it's a problem with USB3.0 and the driver update they did. Powerful graphics cards sometimes interfere for some stupid reason.
Anyway, it's a good headset. If you wanna spend around this price, and you think they look cool, and you aren't a picky butthurt dweller, buy 'em.
Windows 10 setup with downloaded logitech software went without a hitch.
They come with 2 extra headband cushion for different size heads it seems.They are very comfortable even after a 2 hour gaming session.
The sound and custumizable g- keys are awesome, i set mine up to launch my favorite game.
I highly recommend these, il report back later after i have had them for a while.
They do seem a bit flimsy on the earcup to headband connection.
Time will tell
I would give the headset a 5/5 because you get quite a lot for only $100, but there are better mics out there, but for a larger price. These are good enough for me. I recommend!
Sound is great, program you download off the website allows you to tweak it to your preference. Noise cancellation takes some getting used to as you can not hear yourself speak.
mic was great
However, I can hear some noise in left ear sometimes when the volume was all the way down
Headset isn't that comfortable wearing for long periods of time and takes getting used to
For the price I didn't think it was worth it, and returned it. I expected better sound, and the surround sound option is really just a gimmick. There isn't a difference or change from standard sound.
The G35's sound quality weren't as good so I reset the bass and treble inside windows to 0.0 dB and used the Logitech Gaming Software to up the bass and lower the treble to my liking and now it's about the same as my Cloud II's, if not better. Sound quality is great and you can always tinker with the equalizer. Mic is definitely an upgrade.
I'm not very good at FPS but I love playing them. (Battle field 2) People could drive a noisy jeep or shoot at me from behind with a grenade launcher. I would not even know their behind me till it was too late. The bass is so crazy when you're beside a Bradley tank. 'Stop firing I can't see'. The only down side I have read about if you have sound card the head phones won't use it. They have their own. I only have on board sound so this was not a concern for me. Not sure if it still the case but you might want to look into it if it matters to you. I also at this time have not really had a chance to listen to allot of music to say yay or nay about music quality. The head phones do have a switch to change from surround to just left and right. Like anything from Logitech I find if I buy anything else I'll regret it.
Cable is good quality and the headset itself feels solid.
If you're a gamer and look for a good and not so expensive headset, you've found what you need!
Pero el sonido es envolvente. El cable y los componentes parecen duraderos.
Como nota extra: no incluyen la opción de cambiar de voz (ardilla, robot, etc) aún cuando en la caja lo mencionan.
- Sonido perfecto tanto para llamadas, música y juegos.
- Sonido totalmente nítido.
- Monitorea los sonidos y te das cuenta de la dirección proveniente de este "en juegos".
- La música se aprecia perfectamente, cada instrumento/sonido, sin ningún ruido, todo nítido.
- Para llamadas, hasta se escuchan los perros ladrar perfectamente xD, también los gallos, cochis, gatos, regaños, todo escuchas nítidamente
- Aísla completamente los sonidos, No se escuchan los sonidos "externos", y las personas no escuchan ningún sonido proveniente de los audífonos, "cuando los tienes puestos lógico".
- Los botones andan perfecto, puedes cambiar volumen, pausar, retroceder o dar siguiente a la música, todo rápidamente sin necesidad de mirarlos.
- El botón de mute para micrófono también perfecto, cuando lo tienes mute, la punta del micrófono enciende un led rojo para indicar que este está mute.
- Sólo encontré un inconveniente, cada vez que te acomodas los audífonos, pueden desplazarse lo largo de los audífonos, es algo mínimo, debería de tener un seguro para prevenir esto.
