This is Logitech’s top gaming headset and it builds on the reputation of its popular predecessor, the 933. It’s a huge, hulking design with extra-large cups, heavy padding and a wide headband. For the price, we might have expected a little less shiny plastic and perhaps more metal accents, but that would add to the overall weight, and keeping things light is what makes for a better gaming headset. Overall, the G935 is well built and extremely comfortable for long sessions, with breathable fabric against the head to prevent sweat build-up.
Once you get past the bulky shape, the sound quality is truly excellent with clearly separated 7.1 surround sound. The sound remains very well balanced even after setting up different profiles in the software for watching videos and listening to music, a testament to the quality, oversized 50 mm drivers. The mic mutes when raised and has a bendable two-stage boom.
The RGB lighting is pretty unique, presented as large strips down the back of the cups. This should make a strong impression, but only to people watching you from behind. The G logo on the side of the cups can be lit independently for a neat two-colour effect.
Of all the gaming-peripheral makers, Logitech offers the most powerful and most usable companion software, called G Hub. Use it to set your colour schemes, tweak your sound set-up or reassign the buttons bristling down the side of the left-hand cup.
Over-ear design, wired/wireless, 7.1 surround, R4 000
The styling and lighting effects won’t be to everyone’s taste, but the sound quality is among the best of the top-end gaming cans
