Logitech G Pro X Wireless review
The Logitech G Pro X was one of the best gaming headsets of 2019, bringing together a solid construction, good sound, and a software experience that actually improves things. Logitech has since started rolling out the Blue Vo!ce software that made the G Pro X so special into other gaming headsets, but it’s not done with this product line yet. The Logitech G Pro X Wireless is virtually the same headset as its wired predecessor, only, you know, wireless.
Is that enough to really set it apart?
New model: Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED.
Editor’s note: This review was updated on September 2, 2023, to update the charts and mention the Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED.
Gamers looking for something more geared toward competition will like the hardware and software options of this headset. Remote workers will also probably enjoy the comfortable design and straightforward user experience.
What is the Logitech G Pro X Wireless like?
There’s not a lot to say about the Logitech G Pro X Wireless that we didn’t already say about the G Pro X last year. The only real visual difference between the two is, well, the lack of wires. However, that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
This wireless gaming headset is primarily made of metal, with steel hinges and flexible band covered in a leatherette-wrapped cushion. The headphones have the same clean black with reflective metal look as before. It’s a little on the heavy side, given the addition of a battery, but the Logitech G Pro X Wireless feels very sturdy — there’s no creaking in the hinges or rattling and squeaking in the headband.
The G Pro X Wireless is also a very comfortable headset. It clamps down just tight enough to feel secure, without causing tension. Much like its predecessor this is also a pretty glasses-friendly headset out of the box, with included additional velour ear pads. This means getting a decent seal isn’t just easy for gamers without glasses—velour doesn’t have the same isolation value as leatherette, but those with glasses should still feel an improvement.
The Logitech G Pro X Wireless swaps out its predecessor’s 3.5mm detachable cord (and port) for a 2.4 GHz USB RF dongle, for lag-free wireless audio. Just plug it into your PC, PlayStation 4, or docked Nintendo Switch, turn the headset on, and you’re good to go.
Actually using the headset is similarly straightforward. The onboard controls on the left headphone cover the typical functions you’d expect of a gaming headset. There’s a power switch, volume dial, and mic mute button. They all feel different, so they’re easy to find while wearing the headset — something many gaming headsets still struggle with for some reason.
However, if you’re playing on PC there’s one more step worth doing. The Logitech G Pro X Wireless brings additional features using the G Hub app. Just like the wired G Pro X and Logitech’s more recent G733, that includes Blue Vo!ce. This suite of microphone options is made by Blue, the Logitech-owned company that puts out great podcasting microphones like the Yeti and Ember. Blue Vo!ce brings significant software features, and even just turning it on without adjusting any settings dramatically improves the mic quality (more on that in a bit).
How is the battery?
According to Logitech, the G Pro X Wireless’ battery should last longer than 20 hours on a single charge, and our experience was largely consistent with that. At a consistent output of ~75dB, the Logitech G Pro X Wireless lasted 21 hours, 33 minutes in our test. The headset also charges using USB-C, and while it doesn’t support any kind of fast charging, a full recharge shouldn’t take more than a couple hours.
How well does the Logitech G Pro X isolate you from sounds?
Loading chart ...
The Logitech G Pro X offers pretty average isolation for a gaming headset. The above chart is how the headset fares with leatherette ear pads, expect worse with the velour ones. You shouldn’t have much issue with the usual sounds of the home, but if you decide to take your laptop to a cafe and use it, you might run into trouble. There’s not much more to say about this one — it can block out the whirr of a refrigerator, but not music or loud conversation happening nearby.
How does the Logitech G Pro X Wireless sound?
Loading chart ...
The Logitech G Pro X Wireless reproduces accurate sound for a gaming headset. There’s a slight dip in the sub-bass range, but it should otherwise sound pretty much identical to anyone with experience using the wired Logitech G Pro X. Don’t worry too much about that dip in the highs—that’s typical of many headsets and meant to avoid natural resonances within the ear.
Lows, mids, and highs
Listening to music, audio output like this should work well with just about any genre or style. The slight bump in the mid range can make vocals sound a little clearer. In Connect to Consume by A. Swayze and The Ghosts, the bump in the mids adds makes the vocals come through just that much clearer, which is great. Some headphones might struggle with the guitars and bass running roughshod over the chorus, but not this one.
The slight bump in the mid range can make vocals sound a little clearer.
In game, a frequency response like this should be great for just about any genre. The Logitech G Pro X Wireless avoids the trap of boosting bass output into the stratosphere — something many gaming headsets fall into — so you won’t have to worry about the rumble of gunfire and explosions making footsteps in Valorant and Fortnite completely impossible to hear.
The G Pro X Wireless does a great job handling games like Hades and Paradise Killer on PC, balancing game sounds with prominent scored soundtracks with ease. The headset also supports virtual surround sound on PC using the DTS:X 2.0 standard through G Hub, and it simulates directional audio in games like the shooters I mention above.
Hold up! Something’s different:
This article’s microphone frequency response was measured with our old testing system. We have since purchased a Bruel & Kjaer 5128 test fixture (and the appropriate support equipment) to update our testing and data collection. It will take a while to update our backlog of old test results, but we will update this review (and many others!) once we’re able with improved sound quality measurements, isolation performance plots, and standardized microphone demos. These will be made obvious with our new chart aesthetic (black background instead of white). Each new mic sample begins with the phrase, “This is a SoundGuys standardized microphone demonstration …”
Thank you for bearing with us, and we hope to see you again once we’ve sorted everything out.
How is the microphone?
From a purely hardware perspective, the Logitech G Pro X has an extremely average microphone for a gaming headset. It significantly de-emphasizes sound in the bass and mid range (below 1000Hz), which means people with even slightly deep voices may sound pretty distorted. However, the appeal of the headset isn’t just it’s hardware.
Blue Vo!ce changes the mic output dramatically. Turning it on will will put you on the default broadcast-oriented EQ preset, but you can set your own custom EQ, as well as adjust settings like a de-esser, limiter, compressor, and more. It’s a pretty comprehensive piece of software, and makes things sound much better (skip to 1:00 to hear Blue Vo!ce software) — listen for yourself.

Should you buy the Logitech G Pro X Wireless?
If you’re interested in an esports-oriented headset, or just one with a good mic experience, and need it to be wireless, you should think about getting the Logitech G Pro X Wireless.
The Logitech G Pro X is a great gaming headset. It’s comfortable, sounds great, and has a great spread of features. With it, Logitech continues to be basically the only company offering a gaming headset with software that actually adds meaningfully to the experience of using it. That the G Pro X now comes wirelessly is just icing on the cake.
All things considered, the Logitech G Pro X Wireless is a little expensive, but it’s still one of best wireless gaming headsets around. If you’re on PC especially, the wealth of software features really do a lot to even out the headset’s few shortcomings. Of course, you may want to consider the latest version, Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED ($249 at Amazon), which has superseded the G Pro X with a stellar battery life.
Alternatives to the Logitech G Pro X
However, as great as this headset, it’s hardly the only option. If you’re a console gamer primarily, gaming headsets like the HyperX Cloud Flight S ($279 at Amazon) and Razer Thresher Ultimate (on the product’s website) will offer a little more for, with wireless audio and surround sound support on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, respectively. Similarly, the SteelSeries Arctis 1 Wireless ($64 at Amazon) is a little better suited to the Nintendo Switch.
If the idea of having a heavily customizable audio isn’t as attractive as having something that just sounds great right off the bat, the EPOS H3PRO Hybrid ($203 at Amazon) might suit you a little better than the G Pro X Wireless. The H3PRO Hybrid has software support with features like virtual surround sound and an EQ, just not to the same extent. However, even without software aid, it features great audio and an excellent microphone — plus it supports Bluetooth connectivity.
If you’re a PC gamer, you might not feel as strong a need for wireless sound—most desktop PC setups don’t exactly have much distance to cover. In that case the wired Logitech G Pro X is otherwise identical to this headset, and it’s cheaper at $79 at Amazon. The Razer BlackShark V2 is also a great option for $79 at Amazon.
