I’ve had the chance to review a number of different headsets, and I am constantly pushed to figure out what makes each unique. The Logitech Pro X Wireless Lightspeed gaming headset has pushed me again. While the recent Turtle Beach Elite Atlas Pro Headset was an extreme surprise when it came to mic quality, I was excited to hear the Pro X was partnering with Blue Vo!ce for their mic. So how does the headset perform? And is the $200 asking price worth the money? First, let’s look at the specs before we get into the proper review.

I have a very varied musical taste so I test each headset with a wide variety of games and music with a little media mixed in. The goal isn’t to be a technical review. The goal here is to let you know how the headset feels and sounds. I’ve recently turned to Clipping and Rafael Casal/Daveed Diggs as my main way to test how clear music can be on the headset. This is primarily because the speed at which Diggs and Casal can flow really highlights the clarity of the headsets. If you can understand each word easily you are in a good place. If not, the overall headset generally is pretty muddy in sound.
The Pro X performs very well on “Easy Come, Easy Go” which really challenges the headset on bass and treble with a mix of different levels. The song is explicit, but you can check it out here:
Media sounds fantastic on the headset as well. I’ve watched the first two seasons of Norsemen exclusively using a few headsets and the Pro X performs better than most. The bass is generally a little more subtle and clear. Vocal are crisp in most cases. Ultimately, the Pro X is a gaming headset but it sounds good to great with different forms of media.
Logitech Pro X Gaming Performance
In games, the Logitech Pro X has been everything promised by Logitech. The microphone is the best from all the headsets that I have tested. Sound is clear, and you do get headset quality 3D sound. It won’t match a true surround sound system, but it works perfectly well and is among the best currently available with headsets, especially in this price range.
Explosions, gunfire, swords clashing against each other; these all have unique sounds that pop and give a solid recreation of the sound from larger speakers. Higher sounds are also very clear but the most impressive part is the separation of voice and game sounds. With certain headsets, I can’t have the music on in Rise of Nations, for example, if I want to hear my teammate, but with the Pro X I can without problem.
The headset is also extremely comfortable. It isn’t the most comfortable headset I’ve ever worn, but it is towards the top end. I am a glasses wearer and both options, leatherette and foam ear cups, are comfortable for extended periods of time. The headset also fits comfortably without causing any sweating or wearing on the top of my head.
The Logitech Pro X is a solid headset that is an easy purchase if you are looking at headsets in this price range. It is decent with music and movies/shows and excels when it comes to gaming. The standout feature is the microphone which can be used in streams or podcasts. It won’t match high end recording software, but if you are just getting into creating media, this can hit everything you need in one purchase.
Logitech is back in the gaming world with a long range and solid headset and I’m excited to see what else they do to compete with the other big names out there. It isn’t my favorite headset, but at this point the competition is so close it comes down to nitpicks. This is a good choice, and the USB-C charging cable may be the reason to upgrade to Logitech over some of the competition.
