Logitech Finishes Its Pro Trio With a New Headset

Logitech Finishes Its Pro Trio With a New Headset

Like the rest of the line, this headset is ready for eSports.

Back in 2016, Logitech introduced the Pro Gaming Mouse with the aim of removing any features that weren't needed for professional-level gaming. It dropped the bells and whistles of some high-end gaming mice in lieu of form and function: subdued lighting, a comfortable shape, a simple design, and a very responsive sensor. The company followed that last year with the Pro Gaming Keyboard, which was made with the same design ethos.

This year, the company looks to finish off the trifecta with the Logitech G Pro Gaming Headset, which was announced this morning. With this final release, professional-level players, esports veterans, and gamers who prize performance over style have a full set of gaming gear they can pick up that works seamlessly together. The Pro Headset has been designed by Logitech in tandem with its esports teams and partners. It has also been named the official headset of the Electronic Sports League (ESL) CS:GO Pro League, ESL One, and ESL Premiership.

"As a leading gaming gear manufacturer, we develop what esport professionals, players and enthusiasts are looking for," said Logitech Gaming Vice President Ujesh Desai. "The Pro headset was developed in close collaboration with TSM, G2 Esports and London Spitfire players. Our design includes features such as a tournament-grade mic and comfortable leatherette for the perfect headset for esports and pro gamers."

In basic style, the Pro Headset looks a great deal like the G533 Wireless or G433 headsets. Gone are the cloth mesh ear pads of those headsets, in favor of leatherette ear pads built to shut out most outside noise. (The microsuede style ear pads are also included in the box.) Logitech has shaved off the overall weight of the Pro in comparison to the G533, 290g versus the slightly heftier 350g.

The entire Logitech Pro family of hardware.

Logitech outfitted the Pro with what it's calling a "tournament-grade" boom microphone. It's got a stronger pop filter than some of Logitech's other offerings and the microphone can completely detach from the headset. The company promises "lower signal-to-noise ratio and higher sensitivity" than previous Logitech headsets, though the specifications look the same as the G533.

Unlike the G533, the Pro is also an analog headset, featuring a detachable 6-foot 3.5mm cable with a volume wheel and mute control. It also comes with a y-splitter cable to break the headphones and microphone into separate connections. One benefit to the analog nature of the headset is it'll work with any source: PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, or mobile device.

The Logitech Pro Gaming Headset will be available April 2018 for $89.99. We'll have a review of the headset up on USgamer sometime next week, so look forward to it!
