Logitech G533 Wireless Gaming Headset Review - Amazingly Lightweight

Careful with Logitech head sets. I've gone through a lot of them, their mics tend to die rather fast and last time I contacted support for one I was stuck on hold for an hour before having to spend half an hour with a worthless support person who was amazingly slow at even asking me to plug it into another computer. Which didn't matter since I could tell there was a short in the wire for the mic and on top of it they wouldn't replace it, which wouldn't have mattered much if they didn't suck when it came to telling me that.

My buddy's logitech crapped out prematurely as well. Obviously that's anecdotal but I've seen a lot of negative feedback on their headsets.

Yes, Logitech, go back to the solely-numerical product naming system. Because who wants an easy way to tell your products apart?

I've had several, and the only failure I have ever had was when one of them broke right at the hinges where the earcup swivels. Other than that, I've not had any issues. I have had a Steelseries and a HyperX cloud that the mics died on.

I had the left ear give out on one, and mics die on 2, one after only a couple months.
