The Logitech G Pro X Wireless has been a favorite gaming headset among players for a while now, and it’s become one of our favorite gaming headsets as well. In fact, I seldom find myself wanting to put on a pair of anything else when playing on PC. Despite the collection I have to choose from.

There’s just so many good things about this headset that make it hard to use anything but. Whether it’s the excellent audio quality or the super long range for the wireless connection (allowing me to effortlessly stroll from my bedroom to the kitchen without dropping out), I’m constantly reminded why I love this headset. And I use it almost daily.

That isn’t to say the headset is perfect. But if there was a headset that was as close as possible to perfect, the Logitech G Pro X Wireless would easily be a top contender. All that goodness does come at a cost though. A monetary one. And regardless of how good it is, for some the question remains, “will it ever be good enough to pull me away from a wired setup?”

I think there are some strong reasons to consider this headset even if you’re firmly in the wired camp.

The Logitech G Pro X Wireless has excellent range

First, let’s talk about the range of this baby. It’s rated to hold a connection to the dongle for up to 49.22 feet. Or, 15 meters. The beauty of a wireless headset is that you can get up from where you’re sitting and move about.

If you need to grab something from the other end of the room, you can do that. Or if you’re like me, you sometimes need to hop up from your chair and fill up your water bottle or grab a snack while gaming. At just over 49 feet of wireless range, I’ve never had issues with the audio dropping out when connected to a game or chatting with friends on Discord.

I can notify my teammates that i’ll be right back, mute the mic, then get up and walk to the kitchen and grab a drink. All while staying in the conversation. With most other wireless gaming headsets I’ve used, the connection tends to get spotty in the kitchen. So this factor of the G Pro X Wireless was a big strength for me.

Compare that to headsets like the Razer Kaira Pro for PS5 (it also works for PC) which is 30 feet. Or the GSP 670 from EPOS (one of our other favorite headsets) which is about 32 feet. You buy a wireless headset because you want to move freely while staying connected. This does that no problem.

Great vocal clarity, but the mic could use some physical improvements

Not everyone is going to be using a gaming headset for voice chat. So in those cases, it won’t matter how good the mic is or isn’t. The mic on the Logitech G Pro X Wireless is both good and not good.

I’ve found that it provides really good vocal clarity for voice chats. And when asking friends and teammates how I sound in Discord compared to other headsets, I’ve been told I come through nice and clear without my voice sounding to garbled or weak.

This I think is mostly due to Logitech’s implementation of the Blue voice software. Which lets you change your input gain, your master output level, and select from a list of presets. But while the vocal clarity is good, the mic could still use improvements.

Or rather one specific improvement. I’m not the biggest fan of the rigidity of the mic arm. It just feels a little more loose to me than headsets I’ve used with similar style mics. Namely the Razer Kaira Pro for PS5 and the Master & Dynamic MG20. The issue is that the mic arm on the G Pro X Wireless doesn’t bend that far upward or outward away from your mouth and hold its position.

Not as well as other headsets. This isn’t a big problem, but it’s something to keep in mind if you use voice chat a lot. Since I snack from time to time and am constantly staying hydrated while I play (often while using chat), the mic can get in the way a little. Even if I bend the mic arm to make room. And the last thing I want is to dip the mic in my drink.

Like I said, this is a minor problem, but it is one drawback that I would change on the headset if I could.

One of the most comfortable wireless gaming headsets I’ve ever worn

First and foremost, a gaming headset’s top trait needs to be comfort. Because no matter how good it sounds, no matter how good the mic is, you probably won’t wear it often (if at all) if it’s uncomfortable. And that’s completely understandable.

In many cases, gamers chew through play time that can last hours. And you don’t want to wear something for hours that’s going to cause discomfort, ear strain, or any other measure of mild physical annoyance.

That shouldn’t be an issue with the Logitech G Pro X Wireless. It comes with big cushy ear pads that are soft and supple. They keep your ears wrapped in a pillow while the headset itself hugs your head with just enough force to keep game sound in and outside sounds out.

All while preventing any unnecessary tension on your head. The G Pro X Wireless is a tad bit weighty at 370g. But I never found the weight to cause any sort of irritation even after wearing it for 6 hours straight. Plus, Logitech even packs in a second set of memory foam ear pads made from cloth instead of leatherette if you prefer the cloth fabric.

When you get down to it, the G Pro X Wireless is almost as comfortable as they come for gaming headsets. So fear not. You can put this on at the start of a long day of gaming and not feel fatigue or discomfort by the end of it.

Battery life that will last you all day and then some

We’re not talking the longest battery life of any gaming headset. It will however last you all day. Logitech rates the headset at up to 22 hours, and I found that to be pretty accurate. But since I’m also not playing for 22 hours straight, the headset will usually last me anywhere from 3 to 5 days before I have to plug it back in on average. Sometimes I can make it last a week if I’m only using it for a few hours a night.

Your mileage may vary depending on how loud you have the volume up. The up to 22 hours is based on the volume levels being at 50%. So if you play your games with the volume cranked, you’ll probably need to charge it more often. It does also charge via USB-C which not only makes charging it easier these days, but it charges up pretty quickly too.

All-in-all though, there are really no complaints on battery life here.

I won’t deny that this is kind of an expensive headset. It’s far from the most expensive gaming headset you can buy. In fact our previous favorite, the GSP 670 from EPOS, normally costs over $300 when it’s not on sale. And our favorite PS5 headset, the Master & Dynamic MG20 clocks in at $450.

Still, $229.99 is not a small amount to pay for a gaming headset. The price is worth it though if you can afford to pay it. Because with excellent audio quality, clear vocals, high comfortability, and a great wireless range, there’s little not to love here.
