Logitech continues to produce gaming headsets that generally have notable quality across different price ranges. Today, we’ll talk about the Pro X in this Logitech Pro X gaming headset review.
This is one of Logitech’s products that boosts its presence in the gaming peripheral scene. It’s aiming to up its game by taking in cues based on the needs and preferences of pro gamers around. Thus, offering an affordable product that works efficiently and effectively.
The Pro X gaming headset features an expansive software complement. Plus, it comes with a lot of notable aspects that you’d love.
But despite all the positive claims, is it really as good as what they say? We’ll let you in on the details here in our Logitech Pro X gaming headset review.
This gaming headset arrived in a standard looking package that you’ll see from Logitech’s Pro series. It sports an all-black theme which gives off a nice premium vibe to it. Plus, there’s an image of the product displayed at the centre.
Above the image, you’ll find Pro written in bold blue letters. Below the image, you’ll find Logitech and its logo written in the same fonts.
Inside the box, the headset is kept nicely and securely in place, preventing it from moving unnecessarily while in transit. It came with other extras such as a detachable boom mic, additional ear pads, a PC Y-splitter, and a carrying pouch. You’ll even find a 1/8″ TRRS braided audio cable and a 1/8″ TRRS audio cable for mobile.
Of course, Logitech included a couple of paperwork for your convenience.
Logitech Pro X Gaming Headset Review – Design and Functionality
The design and functions of a product are important to know about before purchasing. So we’re talking about these in our Logitech Pro X gaming headset review.
When we successfully unboxed the product, we saw that it isn’t your standard gaming headset. And while a lot of competing products feature aggressive and eye-catching designs or RGBs, consider the Pro X different. Instead, it sports a premium and sophisticated design that makes it attractive in its own way.
Its headband is made from steel and is covered with a leatherette material with aluminium forks holding the cups. These are all black with silver circles featuring the company’s “G” logo at the centre.
Interestingly, light bounces off of it in a radial manner which can be extremely eye-catching. With that, you’re definitely paying extra for premium materials that were used on this product.
Checking its ear pads for this Logitech Pro X gaming headset review, the leatherette ones come preinstalled on the product. Yet the additional ear pads that Logitech included in the package are made from breathable velour.
If you want a better seal when wearing the headset, use the leatherette ones. But if you want something lighter and breathable, go for the velour ones which are ideal for long listening sessions.
When wearing the headset, it’s snug but not too tight. Even for those who claim to have larger than average heads, the product still fits pretty well. And just at 338g, the Pro X isn’t particularly heavy.
For its detachable condenser mic, it’s great for those who usually stream, go for meetings, or multiplayer gaming. You can easily attach the mic to the left ear cup. And if you’re simply listening to music, playing single-player games without chatting, or watching movies, just pop it out easily.
Speaking of its control scheme, we tested it for our Logitech Pro X gaming headset review. Here, we can say that it works pretty decently.
The product comes with two audio cables that have different in-line remotes. Its braided cable is ideal for gaming since it has a mic mute switch and volume wheel.
Its regular audio is best for mobile users, while its multi-purpose button allows you to play/pause music easily. However, it doesn’t have a volume wheel, so take note of that.

Next, our Logitech Pro X gaming headset review will discuss how the Pro X gaming headset performed. Was it as good as Logitech’s claims? We’ll find out.
Hands-on with the Logitech Pro X Gaming Headset
Through the Logitech G HUB software, we were able to tweak various settings like enabling surround sound and changing EQ. There were also settings for adjusting the volume of different surround sound sources.
For the mic settings, we were able to cycle between mic balance presets and create our own options. These helped improve our call quality.
Overall, the G HUB software was a user-friendly software with a simple interface. We had no issues in adjusting the headset’s settings since the program worked well.
We also tested the product for our Logitech Pro X gaming headset review to see how well it performed. We had a solid overall experience and given its wired connectivity and two cables, it basically worked everywhere.
The Pro X gaming headset had a good bass accuracy. Its low bass was neutral and even, giving a good amount of rumble for bass-heavy genres. The added bass emphasised the warmth and boom of in-game sound effects which also increased the impact on our gameplay.
For its mid accuracy, it was impressive. The headset’s response through this range was even and well-balanced. As a result, it delivered clear, full-bodied vocals and lead instruments. The treble accuracy was fair. Although slightly underemphasised, it was balanced too.
We used the surround sound function while playing numerous titles on PC. We didn’t have to adjust the volumes of sound sources since it sounded realistic and detailed enough. Determining where the audio cues came from was easy with surround sound enabled, but adjusting the volumes made a difference.
This headset handled sound profiles excellently and we had no issues using it for long periods.
The boom mic of the Logitech Pro X gaming headset offered good recording quality during our tests. Recorded speech sounded clear, full and natural. Though at times, there was a little sharpness in it.
In terms of noise handling capabilities, the Pro X’s boom mic was great. When we called our friends, they understood us clearly even when we were in a noisy and crowded environment.
Logitech Pro X Gaming Headset Review Summary
The Logitech Pro X is a great gaming headset that offers impressive sound and is customisable via its user-friendly software. Although it’s quite pricey, what it can deliver makes the headset worth the purchase.
The product offers a neutral sound with a balanced sound profile which adds emphasis to both music and in-game effects. At the same time, it doesn’t overpower dialogues, vocals, and lead instruments which is great. With the companion software, you can easily customise the Pro X’s audio profile and fine-tune your listening experience.
We highly recommend the Logitech Pro X gaming headset. It’s an excellent option especially for gamers who want surround sound and comfort for long gaming sessions. Also, it’s great for at-home workers since it’s ideal for voice calls and virtual meetings.
To get your hands on the Logitech Pro X gaming headset, you can purchase it from the company’s official website.
