Sound quality is typically excellent for voices. I am often able to hear and understand speech that others can't, even when the call quality itself is not good. I have never had any complaints about my microphone quality, and I have done a number of tests myself (using call-testing services) to ensure there are no distortion or volume issues, and they all came out perfectly.
Sound quality for music is not as good as you would find on high-end or even some mid-grade wired units, but it does the job well enough. You may miss a bit of bass or depth to your music, but I think the tradeoff is worth it for the clarity of voice. I believe this is more likely due to a conscious effort to tune the set for voice communication, rather than some limitation of the hardware.
The easy to access mute button and auto-mute when the boom is retracted work flawlessly. I am often taking myself on and off mute and this has never failed me. Being able to see and confirm the red-light at the end of the mic-boom is another great feature.
Battery life is typically sufficient to get me through 5-6 hours of heavy usage (constant speaking/listening) and 8-10 hours of light usage (only listening, interspersed with small breaks of silence). The headset charges quickly, and I am close enough to the base station that I can use them wired if I need to, so I have never had an issue with power.
The "G buttons" don't all work with my Mac. The center button (G2) for Pause/Play worked out of the box, and that's really all I need. I was able to get the track-change buttons (G1, G3) to work using a third-party app, although I have since found that I used them so infrequently that it didn't warrant the use of the app.
Now the bad news, and the three-star rating: I have had these headphones for less than one year. As I mentioned, I use them professionally to take business calls. When not in use, they are always placed on a high-end cradle. They have not been abused in the slightest, and the greatest wear and tear they receive is from putting them on and off my ears a few times daily.
Even with this light usage, less than one year from purchasing, I am experiencing the same problem reported by other purchasers with the backing-plates on the swivel joints cracking and failing. In my case, this is so severe that the left-side monitor is no longer attached and the product is basically useless. I've avoided going the duct-tape route for now to see if Logitech will resolve this issue under the 3-year warranty. If not, I will likely purchase from a different manufacturer as it just isn't acceptable for me to be communicating with clients with duct-tape hanging off my headset.
In short, this seemed like a very capable product that fit my needs perfectly. I expected that, being a gaming device, this product would last quite a while, but unfortunately one weak link in the product makes this impossible. I would gladly have paid an additional $10 if it meant some metal plates, or higher-quality plastic could have been used instead. Perhaps I was expecting too much from the "high-end" offering of a brand that has traditionally been associated with more "budget-minded" items.
If you simply can't live without the exact features provided by the G930, I would recommend trying to find a way to reinforce these backing plates immediately after purchasing. Also be sure to register your product right away at logitech.com/support in case your product does fail in the future.
I will update this review with Logitech's response when (or if) I receive one.
First the good points. The sound quality is excellent, no one has ever had a problem hearing me. I never got a 10 hour charge out of the batteries as advertised, but got 5 or 6 at first. They are comfortable, they don't weight too much, they wrap securely around my head without being too tight and do a good job blocking out outside sound. They give you a really long USB cable with a base you can wrap it around to shorten to whatever you desire. At first it really appeared to be a fantastic product.
Then came the problems. Right off the bat I noticed it had problems staying connected. Probably 5-6 times per day, it will give out a short beep and lose the connection for about 5-10 seconds, and give me a double beep and reconnect. Since it always reconnects on its own It isn't terrible enough for me to have returned the product, but over the 7 months or so that I've owned it, it started to make me hate the thing. It was frequent enough that it would often make me have to rewind in a movie or show I was watching, or I'd miss an important moment in a video game, or I'd have to ask someone to repeat themselves when I was on a work call. It wouldn't be so bad if it only happened when using the headset wirelessly, but it has this problem even if you have the USB cable plugged in, as it only seems to use that cable for charging and not to send data over USB like their wireless mouses.
Even worse, about once or twice a week it will start making a low humming sound that gradually builds into deafening buzzing. It sounds a lot like feedback but it happens even if the mic is muted so I have no idea what the issue is. Turning the headset off and then back on a few minutes later fixes it, but if you turn it off and back on quickly it's still there, you really do have to wait a few minutes which is absolutely unacceptable if you're using this thing for a work call.
Battery life has gotten bad quickly. I know rechargeable batteries have a limited life-cycle but I expected it to at least be decent until I was past the warranty period, but I've only had it for 7 months. I feel like it only gets about 2.5-3 hours after charging all night now. I'll have to do a test and come back and edit this with specific results.
The last straw was the mechanism that keeps the right headphone tight and in place broke. Since they wrap fairly securely around my head and ears, I typically remove the headphones by grabbing the right side and pulling it off my right ear then sliding the headphones off my head. Apparently this was too much strain on the piece of plastic used there, because it just snapped off and flew across the room one day, leaving the right headphone loose and making the product no longer comfortable or secure around my head. (Picture of the broken product attached to this review) I'm still well within the warranty period so I decide to RMA these things and hope for better results with the replacement.
Logitech support, which used to be incredible, has taken a real dive apparently. Here is my support horror story: I opened my first support ticket 10 days ago, no response. I did a live chat a couple days later, the agent told me he was going to get me an RMA and to hold on, then I got kicked out of the live chat for taking too long to respond to the agent even though he told me to "hold on" while he processed my RMA. There was no way for me to get back into the live chat or even start a new live chat under the same support ticket, so I had to open a new ticket and start a new live chat with a different person, explained the situation to her, she said she talked to the other agent and he was going to process my RMA request and that I'd get an email within an hour.
I waited 2 days and never got the email (checked spam, etc.), so I called their support phone number. Unfortunately during that call the headphones started doing that loud buzzing/feedback thing and I had to turn them off, and I guess while I was unresponsive the agent hung up on me. So another 2 days later I tried a live chat again and got that first agent, and I referred him back to the prior ticket and chat and he said he didn't know why the RMA didn't go through before but their new system has some bugs that haven't been worked out. He started the process over again but this time we had to make sure to keep talking while he processed the RMA. He would type something like "I'm typing this so the chat doesn't kick us out" and I'd respond with "I'm responding for the same reason". This exchange went on for 36 minutes (I have the chat logs), which was going to make me late for an appointment, so I had to get in my car, remote into my computer through my phone, and every few minutes type something into the live chat so I didn't get kicked out and have to start all over again, while driving. Finally he told me my RMA was processed and I'd get an email within an hour.
I never got that email either. I wait two more days and try another live chat. I explain to the new agent, give her all my pending support tickets for reference, she apologizes, says she will escalate this to the senior level, and says someone should contact me within 48 hours. I tell her "okay, what do I do if no one contacts me? Because this keeps happening." She responds, and this is a direct quote, by saying "I will make sure, you will receive a response on this matter."
48 hours later, no one has contacted me. I try phone support again (I use my cell phone this time since I can't trust this headset), and I tell the agent all of the above and give him all my various pending support tickets ( I now have 7 pending support tickets for this one issue, because there is no way to open a live chat under an existing ticket and starting a new live chat creates a new ticket ). The agent on the phone says "wow this is a real mess" and I agree. He promises to send me an email and stays on the phone with me, I get it instantly, proving I'm capable of receiving emails from Logitech support. The email requested a bunch of information that they already have because I registered my product to my logitech account and provided the proof of purchase and a picture of the problem and everything in my first support ticket, but I filled it out again and responded. That was yesterday. As of today, one of my 7 support tickets says "RMA pending". I'm still waiting on the actual RMA, at which point I will have to ship my product to them and wait until they ship a new / refurbished product back to me. Hopefully.
This is the kind of support experience I expect from Comcast, not Logitech.
WHEN IT WORKS - everything sounds great, and output is high quality.
But when it's not working properly, the headset shuts off randomly, has tons of static or other audio artifacts (glitchy sounds, buzzing, etc).
The switch to and from Dolby doesn't work right either. The mute doesn't always work, making for some awkward situations in Teamspeak or Skype, etc.
The buttons on the side don't always work. Most notably, the volume dial hardly ever works.
The big pro's to this device is that the lasting time off the charger. And, again, when it works, the sound quality. The Logitech Gaming Software that you can download with it can be great, but, honestly, I had to go through hell just to get it to pick up my headset at first. You can get other voice profiles (voice changers). A few are included, but, surprise: you have to buy more if you want more.
I expected much better for the price. As long as they don't die out within a couple of years, I guess ill be okay with it. I suggest potential buyers do some more research and find an alternative. Unless these happen to be on a huge sale.
