Logitech introduced its new G335 wired gaming headset that’s available for preorder now at $69.99. It’s anticipated to ship in July. The G335 borrows a number of design parts from the $129.99 G733 wireless model released in 2020, together with its expressive shade choices (in addition to a new mint colorway), the snug bungee headband, breathable ear pads, and a quantity dial constructed into certainly one of its ear cups.
This extra inexpensive mannequin is suitable with the G733’s replaceable headband straps and mic covers offered by Logitech’s web site, however it does away with most of that headset’s fancier options, like USB-C charging and the strip of RGB lighting on the entrance facet of the ear cups. It has a flip-to-mute microphone, whereas the G733’s was removable. Logitech says this wired mannequin has a slimmer design for “a smaller match and elevated consolation.” It weighs 240 grams, which is about 40 grams lower than the wi-fi mannequin.
The G335 comes with a 3.5mm cable hooked up, which ensures help with many units which have an audio jack, be it a PS5 or Xbox Collection X console controller, a PC, pill, a laptop computer, or one thing else. Logitech contains a PC splitter to accommodate computer systems which have separate microphone and audio inputs.
It’s finest to not anticipate an excessive amount of from a $70 wired headset, however I beloved the design and match of the G733. And if the audio efficiency is something just like the pricier wi-fi mannequin, the G335 may very well be straightforward to advocate at its worth level. We’ll be testing this one out quickly.
Correction: The unique article erroneously acknowledged that the G733 has a flip-to-mute microphone. It has a removable microphone. We remorse the error.
