Review of the Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Headset

"Logitech has introduced the Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED wireless headset with several smart improvements compared to the company's previous version. In the following lines, we will highlight the features of this release."

"The Design"

Logitech has meticulously developed the G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED wireless headset with intricate details to enhance the gaming experience for users. It incorporates all the essential specifications for this category of headphones, building upon the foundation laid by the Logitech G PRO X headset.

The headphones feature graphene drivers that elevate the user's listening experience. Additionally, the headset comes with some design changes, most notably the headphone hinge.

The headset also features a metal frame and includes an additional hinge in the headband that extends directly to the ear pads. This hinge allows independent adjustment of each side of the ear pads, with the ability to rotate the ear pads flat when placing the headset on a desktop surface or around the user's neck.

Logitech aims to enhance user comfort during extended gaming sessions with these subtle design changes.

The PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED also includes two ear pads on each side. The first layer features a design made of soft leather, while the second layer is made of plush fabric, providing the user with a comfortable experience, especially in cases of elevated skin temperature in the cushion layer or when the user needs to wear glasses. This is a beneficial addition to the headset's design.

"The Headset Controls"

"The PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED headset comes with on-ear controls, providing a seamless experience through two buttons. One button can be used to mute the microphone, while the other supports Bluetooth pairing with devices. These controls also manage playback and volume levels.

Other audio settings can be adjusted through the Logitech G HUB application on computer or macOS devices."

"The Logitech G HUB Application"

"The Logitech G HUB application significantly supports users of the Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED headset. Through the Logitech G HUB app, users can customize audio settings and headset features to their preferred gaming experience.

Additionally, the application provides access to DTS X 2.0 for default adjustment of multidirectional audio, allowing users to fine-tune the EQ settings across 5 bands. This is in addition to supporting customization features for Blue Vo!ce.

The application also facilitates seamless and fast navigation for users to explore headset software updates, as well as easy browsing of EQ settings and microphone features."

"The Headset Connectivity Options"

"The Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED headset supports three connectivity options. It can connect wired to devices via a 3.5mm cable, connect via Bluetooth, or also wirelessly connect via 2.4GHz USB-A.

For Bluetooth connectivity, the headset supports AAC and SBC encoding, but lacks support for aptX standards for Android devices.

Wireless connectivity is the preferred choice for gaming to ensure quick responsiveness. For gaming on computers or the PS5, wireless connectivity via the USB dongle is the optimal choice.

The 3.5mm jack is the best option for Xbox or portable gaming devices like Nintendo Switch or Steam Deck.

Bluetooth is the least compatible option for gaming, providing good support for music listening.

The Bluetooth option does not support multi-device or simultaneous connection technology. Users can connect the headset to devices via the 3.5mm jack when the headset is turned off. However, the headset will switch between the two options.

Battery Life:

Logitech states that the G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED wireless headset supports up to 50 hours of playtime before needing a recharge via USB dongle.

In practical testing with music playback at 75 decibels, the headset lasted up to 88 hours and 27 minutes. While the HyperX Cloud Alpha headset surpasses it in battery life, the G PRO X 2 provides a good charging life based on the user's gaming habits.

Noise Isolation Performance:

The Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED headset provides average noise isolation from external sounds and does not feature active noise cancellation.

When the headset's microphone is disconnected or when the G PRO X 2 is connected via Bluetooth in outdoor environments, sounds like car engines won't be blocked. This type of noise is typically isolated with active noise cancellation.

Audio Performance:

The Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED headset delivers high-quality audio for an immersive gaming experience. The headphone's audio performance is tuned for gaming scenarios, providing clear and detailed sound."

"The Audio Performance of the Headset:

"The Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED headset offers a frequency response that aligns with the user's preferences compared to competing models in the market.

The mid-range audio doesn't diminish, akin to other headphones in the same category. Logitech has placed a significant emphasis on delivering powerful bass, and the precise bass adjustment feature enhances the music-listening experience to the highest level. It provides detailed nuances without overshadowing vocals or other musical elements.

This sound experience extends into gaming, as demonstrated with Apex Legends on a computer. The audio was clear, with accurate sounds for explosions and gunfire without distracting the user.

The headset comes with DTS X 2.0 technology for virtual surround sound, integrating with the G HUB application to fine-tune audio for optimal gaming performance.

The bass performance boasts a very high level initially, but bass adjustment can be controlled through the application settings. However, the multi-directional audio feature doesn't offer good performance when listening to music, so users may need to disable it after gaming sessions.

Microphone Performance and Quality:

The microphone in the Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED headset delivers good performance. However, the microphone does not support broadcasting and is not the best when compared to microphones in competitive gaming headsets like the Corsair Virtuoso series. Nevertheless, it performs well in applications like Zoom and Teams.

The Blue Vo!ce software works on equalizing and adjusting the microphone, activating signal adjustment tools, and eliminating pressure and more.

Do You Need to Acquire the Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED?

If you're looking for an advanced gaming headset with a fantastic audio experience and many features, supporting connectivity with various devices, the G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED is a good choice. It provides a very good audio experience and a comfortable design compatible with long gaming sessions, with software features enhancing the user experience. However, it falls into the mid-range category for gaming headsets."
