The top of head beam(3.0mm stainless steel) is made of artificial leather, the PRO logo is printed in center.
The memory foam filled inside the head beam is light and comfortable.
The telescopic rod has a scale mark of 1-12, supports a height of about 4 cm, which is very compatible with different head types.
The material of Logitech G PRO X is high-grade protein leather, the touch is very delicate and comfortable, and they are filled with lots of memory foam. Different from other Logitech’s ear pads, G PRO X’s memory foam rebounds more slowly and has a greater cushioning feeling, which can bring a more comfortable wearing experience and a smaller sense of ear clamping.
The connection between ear cups and head beam is achieved through the aviation-grade 6061 aluminum alloy frame, which is very strong and sturdy. You can see from the above the photo that the branching point of the head beam and the top of the ear cup have a flexibly extended spring shape cable.

|Frequency response||100 Hz-10 KHz|
The biggest selling point of Logitech G PRO X is Blue microphone technology. The newly upgraded 60mm microphone, whether it is in the microphone noise reduction or sound transmission, the improvement brought by Blue technology is obvious.
In addition, the microphone is equipped with a spray-proof sponge cover to reduce the harsh sound.
There are two 3.5mm interfaces on the left ear shell: microphone interface is on the side, headphone connection interface directly below.
PRO-G 50mm driver, frequency response range 20Hz-20kHz, impedance 32Ω, sensitivity 107dB. Its advantages are reflected in its high sensitivity, and the sound can be restored as much as possible during the conversion. And the high impedance of 35 ohms can also widen the range of treble and bass frequencies to help players to distinguish them.
The corresponding software for Logitech G PRO X headset is G HUB. Open G HUB, it will first start to detect Logitech peripherals, and then start to download the corresponding software.
Logitech provides many customized settings. Logitech G PRO X’s G HUB includes 3 settings: microphone, equalizer and sound effects.

- Chuck feeling: Since the head beam is wrapped with leather stitching, it will not pinch the hair. It can also easily open a wider angle and does not give a chuck feeling.
- Weight: This headset is a medium weight of 320g, the microphone can be removed when not in use to reduce the weight.
- Sound insulation: Closed design brings a perfect sound insulation effect.
Logitech G Pro X first gave me the feeling that the sound field was wide, and the stereoscopic coverage of the sound made my ears surrounded by a strong sense of immersion. Logitech G Pro X also has a good performance in the separation of vocals and accompaniment, especially when listening to slow-paced love songs, the vocal effect is very pure. Thanks to the DTS: X 2.0 sound card, it makes sound quality to a higher level.
As an e-sports headset, Logitech G PRO gaming headset has excellent tuning and a very wide sound field, whether it is high frequency, mid frequency, or low frequency. Sound localization is very accurate. Whether it is human voice, gunshots, footsteps, you can clearly distinguish the direction and distance.
As we all know that many games have very high requirements for the midrange and bass, so many gaming headsets will increase their rendering, but this tend to be distorted. But G PRO X does not have this problem, maybe it is equipped with 7.1 channels, or the cooperation with BLUE. I feel that the performance of the headset sound is very clear and true.
The BLUE VO!CE microphone does improve the team communication. From the feedback of teammates, the current noise did not appear, the overall expression expectations also met my expectations.
Logitech G PRO X Pros and Cons
- Premium build quality
- Excellent sound quality
- BLUE VO!CE detachable microphone
- No wireless functionality
- Non-rotatable ear cups
Logitech G PRO X headset has been recognized by many E-Sports players, and it is foreseeable that it will appear in more and more E-sports competition. I believe G PRO X will become Logitech’s new flagship gaming headset.
