So, I’ve been pretty spoilt over the past couple of months. First off I wanted some new Logitech G933 wireless headphones for my computer – I use mainly headphones, and although I didn’t need the 7.1 I thought, if I do play any games then that would come in handy. So, during Black Friday deal I purchased some – so that the kids could give me them for Christmas 🙂
Then in January, for our anniversary my wife picked me up some Bose QC35 MkII headphones – this time for listening to music. So, I was spoiled in having 2 great wireless headphones – though each for a different purpose.
I thought, as I have been using them for 1-2 months now (2 months for the Logitech), I thought I would give you my run down of them so far. How I have found them. Anything that could be improved and my current opinion them.
Logitech G933 Wireless Surround Sound Gaming Headphones
Let me start with the Logitech G933 gaming headphones.
Let me start by saying that I think these are a beast of a gaming headset. They are big, they are a little bulkier than some – but they are not, least for me, heavy or awkward. They fit very well and go over al my ears (I don’t personally like headphones that sit on my ears).
So, before I give my thoughts, let me explain a little about the reason I bought these. I have an awesome sound card in my desktop, but as I use it a lot when the kids are in bed I mostly use headphones. The one issue I had was that the lead kept going under the wheelchair or wrapped around something.
So, many main requirements were for it to be wireless. Now, because I had an awesome sound card, I didn’t want to lose quality – so the choice had to be something that was as good a quality.
After research and looking at reviews, I came up with the Logitech G933. They are not the cheapest out there but they were on a good deal (Check the latest price on Amazon – Amazon Link).
The great things about these are as follows:
- The go over my ears. I don’t have small ears really, and I really hate headphones that site on my ears. These go completely over and have some space around my ears – and the cushions are soft too which makes them really comfortable.
- They sound great. I’ve not done a lot of gaming in them yet, I have only played a few times. The games sounded great – though have to play a little more to try surround I think. I’ve also used them for music and video – the sound is great for these too. All in all, probably the best gaming headphones I’ve owned.
- Although bulky, I don’t find them too heavy. They feel very nice and I don’t really notice them on too much
- Although I have not tied the pull-down headphone yet – I love the fact that it activates when its pulled completely down – so no issue with premature speech 🙂
- The battery life seems really good in them (I turn off the LED so to get more life out of it) and charge times seem to be good – you can also use them while the lead is in charging.
- They are surround sound 🙂
- You can turn the volume up and down as well as having other functional buttons on them
- They look fantastic – even better when lights are on…
One small thing to note is these use a USB adaptor that plugs into your computer. This is what the headphones connect to. There is a compartment in the side of one of the headphones that you put this USB adaptor into when transferring.
Here are a few more images of the headphones :
Bose QC35 MkII
Next up we have the Bose QC35 (Quiet Comfort I believe they stand for).
The Bose QC35 is a Bluetooth headset which is really aimed at music and music lovers. It has Noise Cancelling (one of the best I have tried) to make the listening experience even better.
The headphones I have are the MkII version which comes with an extra button on the left headset. This is to access Google Assist and to change the level of noise cancellation. Personally, I don’t use google assist and think Why would I want to reduce the level of noise cancellation?
Overall these are probably the best music headphones I have ever owned. The noise cancellation is fantastic. They are really comfortable, again fitting completely over my ears. They pair so easily with everything I have tried – and the sound quality to me is fantastic (though I am not an audiophile – so some may say different).
They aren’t the cheapest (Check the latest price on Amazon – Amazon link) but you are paying for the quality of the sound and the noise reduction. They also seem very well made.
Of course, you could go for the first edition of these headphones – after all, it uses the same noise cancellation technology – you just don’t get the Google Assist and ability to reduce the noise cancellation (Check the latest price on Amazon – Amazon link). At the time of writing this, they are about £50 cheaper.
So are the good?
In my personal opinion, both are brilliant. Both of them serve different purpose and they are brilliant for that purpose. I’d give both 9/10 (I never give 10/10) – but both come near to that perfect score for me.
