Top Customer Reviews
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.
Thank you for sharing your frank feedback with us about the Wireless Gaming Headset G930. It is unfortunate to hear that it suddenly got broken after less than a year. We will be sure to forward your thoughts to the appropriate product team here at Logitech.

Logitech Customer Care
I've tried some other headsets since, even the Astro A50 (bad microphones), and this is still my go to recommended headset. Especially for the value. This still seems to be the leader for range and is a solid performer in all other areas. Not perfect, but no deal breakers.
There's a major design flaw. The plastic covers that go over the pivot point of the ear cups break. I have 3 of these and two have broken the same exact way. After doing some research it's a common problem. I would not suggest purchasing these because they will most likely break at some point. Also they do cut out occasionally, but come right back on.
I liked these so much I purchased 3 sets. One broke and just received the replacement set and I notice a second set is now broke in the exact same way. The sound and range are great, so it's sad to see such a glaring problem that could have been easily avoided with a cheap solution of cheap metal covers instead of thin plastic ones at a stress point.
Still using the headset, and it still works fine. It is used 12-15 hours per week, every week, and has been since I bought it. I've replaced the ear cushions (frayed, worn out) and the headstrap cushion cover is frayed . . . but everything else is A-OK. 4 years of continuous use and still going strong.
7/5/12 Update: I've used this headset now for nearly two years, same usage pattern, and it still feels and functions as new. Normally I'd have concerns about the life of built-in rechargeable batteries, but this headset just plain continues to work. Even if/when the battery ultimately fails, it can still be used as a corded headset. This is a good one :)
11/26/11 Update: Ventrilo PTT key now works very nicely. You can set up a standard keyboard key to PTT from the keyboard, and a G-Key to PTT from the headset when you are AFK. I have used the headset for more than 1 year now, a minimum of 3x3hr sessions per week on Ventrilo and a few hours a week on Skype. The headset has performed perfectly. Upgraded the rating to 5-stars which applies if you are purchasing these to game and use Ventrilo.
[original review follows, edited to show PTT now works.]
First off, the G930 is physically a nice headset. Adjustable, comfortable, not too heavy compared to other full-sized, circumaural headphones. I'll leave full judgement on the quality of sound to others, since these older ears are no longer qualified to critique. But I *can* say you get clear, soft or loud sound from them :)
Ventrilo 3.0.5 Push to Talk (PTT)
The only reason I'm writing a "Day 1" review (which is normally not worth much lol) is to note a key advertised feature that does not work. The reason I bought these headphones vs several others was the three G-Keys, and their ability to send commands to my PC while I am physically away from the keyboard. Specifically, the advertisement that Ventrilo "Push to Talk" was supported. It is not. [as of 3rd quarter 2011, this feature works very well].
The G-Keys work with a drop-down, limited LIST of applications, ie., Windows Media Player, iTunes, Winamp, PowerDVD, WinDVD, and the G930 software itself. Ventrilo 3.0.5 (app & version number) is also listed, and a listed action for this app is "Push to Talk". I checked all those things before I bought, but after an otherwise pleasant hour with Logitech support in the Philippines, the function does not work, it is a known issue, and "they will get back to me when there's further information". [It's meaningful to note that Logitech support *did* get back to me several months later to notify me that the PTT feature now worked.]
Logitech G-Keys - What is Expected from a Brandmark
The other thing you should know is this: When Logitech mentions "G-Keys", that word invokes the functionality of EVERY other Logitech product that has "G-Keys". PC gamers know the term. G-Keys can be programmed to send any key, key combination, or string with one key-press as if it were typed, very quickly, via the keyboard. The "G"930's G-Keys do NOT work that way. Each of the few listed apps has only a short list of pre-determined command choices. This important difference is obscured, no doubt intentionally, in Logitech's limited literature.
Range: 40' seems a fair estimate of range vs the advertised range of other products. So I get a little more range than bluetooth, and arguably half what I get from, say, Sennheiser RF Headphones (100' "open air" advertised). At the edge of signal loss, the headset becomes slightly directional, ie, you can at times re-acquire or lose the signal. This is pretty much standard in my experience.
Environment: My G930 needs to operate in a "radio-noisy" and highly metallic environment (lots of gear, transmitters, metal in/on exterior walls), and it performs as well as any RF devices I have used here.
Ergonomics: Pretty good, with some "buts". All the keys placed on one ear piece is a good decision, but crowding can lead to indvertant button presses when picking up and donning the headset. Choosing the left ear piece was a good choice, but left-handed mousers will have some adjustments. OTOH, the G-Keys don't have much - er, any - practical gaming function, so this isn't an issue.
The "Power On" key implementation is unusual, and very poorly defined. The best I can tell, to turn the device off, hold the button in for 3 seconds (not 5), and if it changes to blinking green when you release it, you have successfully shut it off. If it doesn't, hold the key a little longer next time lol.
I'll be back with updates when I have used the device long enough to know it. Yes, I'm keeping it, yes I like Logitech products, and I'm hopeful eventually the G-Keys will eventually be real G-Keys. (As of 11/11 they are not.)
I originally posted these two as workarounds for PTT. While they are no longer required, they may still prove useful:
1) Very Cumbersome: When going AFK, switch Ventrilo to "open microphone", and rotate the headset microphone up to mute, down to talk.
2) Highly workable: G930 software supports "plug-ins". Fortunately, a User has created one that works not only with Ventrilo (I tested it), but should work with other voicechats. The sole drawback is you push the Gkey once to "talk", and once to "stop talking". The download, description, and cause of this drawback is in this Logitech forum thread (Page 2 at this writing).
