Logitech Precision PC Gaming Headset Review

Postby Apoptosis » Mon Mar 06, 2006 9:29 am

Today we look at what seems to be a very popular headset for PC Gaming – the Logitech Precision PC Gaming Headset. At a very affordable price, is this the set that will make you truly L337 when in use? With 40mm neodymium stereo drivers and in-line volume controls they look great on paper!

For a retail price of $29.95, this is very popular headset with masses attempting for the first time to use real-time communication in gaming as well as other chat programs such as Skype or Google-Talk. At first glance, this set would seem to have everything a gamer and a grandmother would need.

Thanks for the review. I'm just thinking now on buying a new headset, so I thought maybe I'll go with this one. I'm afraid that it will make my ears hurt (like you stated in the review), that's why I haven't decided yet.

Do you have any recommendations on another headset that I can buy for $25-$35???

THX!!!

Ken is working on many more gaming headsets and has found a couple that are good. I'll let him say which though as he used them all!

Have you heard about or tried one of the "SteelSound" headsets?

You can read a good review on one of their sets HERE.

Thanks, bigblockmatt! This headset looks awesome and is pretty cheap as well. Also the reviews give it a pretty high score.

THX. :)

any of them noise cancelling? I have a pair of maxell noise cancelling headphones that are doing down the crapper really soon. Noise cancelling is one of those once you go black you never go back. LOL

We have a review coming up on what I consider the best "entry-level" line of headsets, the Altec Lansing AHS302usb. They aren't noise cancelling, but sound and mic quality are very good. Street price: ~$22

The ones that Bigblockmatt pointed us to look good as well. Wouldn't mind gettng my hands on one to test. 8)

Stay tuned for more headsets!

the edimensional headsets are pretty cool for gaming. they have the "force feedback" which really just the headsets kinda vibrating when in action. like when you shoot or get shot or jump etc. the main problems i had with them was that they have to be quite loud to "feel" the effect of the force feedback and the litghts on the side didnt work unless it was loud. I also had some buzzing during quite times which got anoying. dont know if it was my sound card or something else. they are very ocmfertable to wear.
