Tech Review: Logitech G335 Gaming Headset

If you like what I do and want to show your support, please consider buying me a coffee

I want to start by saying that this isn’t a sponsored review. Unfortunately, I bought this headset with my own money. I will add affiliate links to the headset if you choose to buy it, but that won’t affect my opinion of the product.

The Logitech G355 Headset isn’t worth the $70 they are asking for. I got it on sale for $30 and feel a little better about my purchase, but you are getting what you pay for. Out of the box, this headset looks and feels cheap. The plastic feels so fragile that I thought it was going to break when I put them on. Thankfully they didn’t, but I don’t see them outliving my gaming career.

The headset comes with a 3.5 mm headphone jack, but it includes a mic splitter for those of you playing on PC. It says it is compatible with all consoles and PC, but I only tested it for PC. Your mileage may vary, but I doubt it. The only cool feature this comes with is a nifty little wheel for volume control that is built into the headset. The G335 comes in black, mint, and white.

The only positive feature of this headset is how comfortable they are, but this is sure to be short-lived. The pads cupped my ears nicely, and the padding was thick and firm. They are a bit stiff out of the box, but they start to conform to your shape relatively quickly. The style of the ear pads prevented any noise from bleeding in or out, which is nice if you share a room. They aren’t sound canceling, but they will do the job for a time. I don’t have faith in the padding keeping its integrity for long. While the headset did get more comfortable over time, how quickly it did so has me worried. The G355 isn’t made with quality materials, and in a year or so, I fear they will become deflated and ugly.

If you are looking for a headset to talk with your friends, look elsewhere. While they may be better than other headsets in the $30 range, the mic is terrible. The mic does a terrible job of filtering any background noise. Whoever is on the receiving end of your voice chats will hear everything. The placement of the mic is too high, and trying to set gates to help filter the sound is useless. I found the best way to use this mic was through the use of a DAC/AMP, but I had to almost yell for the mic to pick up my voice. I used the Soundblaster X3 for my testing, but if you are going to buy a DAC for this headset, you are better off buying a better headset. I’ve included my audio test bellow:

The sound on this headset is alright. Music sounds very flat, even with equalizers or a DAC. It does have a decent amount of bass, but I fear it was only added to trick people into thinking it is a better headset. The boosted bass just makes everything sound flattered.

These will do if you need a cheap headset and don’t care about the sound or the mic, but only get these for $30. The colors are nice, but the cheap build will mean that these will be in the trash in a couple of years. For those of you interested, you can find this headset in all its colors on Amazon.

  1. I found my pair at Walmart for about $39, on sale, and got it for my wife. She had no problem with the headset, as she doesn’t use them on a regular basis. For me, someone who uses gaming headphones daily (Astros, hyperX and Turtle Beach) I found this specific headset to be worse than the Turtle Beach Headphones that sit on a lonely shelf of my bookcase. I second your opinion, these headphones are not worth the money!

    1. For $39 they are fine, especially if you aren’t using them regularly. They were bad, and i’ve gone through a few of the turtle beaches myself. What headset do you use normally?

      1. My go to is the Astros A10, but I have also been using the HyperX Clouds. It all depends on what is closer lol. The thing with the Logitech, which you mentioned in the post, is that the headset feels very fragile (it’s way too light and feels cheaply made). I just know I paid $39 for my Astros, which are still priced that way, which are a way better product. But yeah, for $39 these headphones are worth it if you are looking for a deal and don’t game a lot.

      2. I got the headset because I needed it for work, but I will have to look into the Astros. I need something convenient but that I can use on the daily. Currently I use a stand on a boom and a pair of Bose and I love it, but it is a bit cumbersome for work.

      3. I use the HyperX for blogging and other work related things. They are comfortable and light. Have the time I forget they are on my head. I also like JLab which makes a good wireless option(can also be plugged in if you want wired). What do you do for work? Is this your full timer?

      4. I will look them up. I do data entry and sales. At homes I am fine, but the set up gets in the way. I was looking for a cheap but decent headset for when I have to go into the office so I can take calls and listen to music or podcasts while I do data entry. It is my full time Job
