Summary: Logitech has not spared any expense at creating gaming audio peripherals for their user base and with the Logitech G430, they continue to bring the best quality their brand can offer and yet at a more attracitive price point.
Pros: Immersive Audio, Lightweight
Cons: No G-Key customisation, Does not feel comfortable for long durations
Excerpt: We use all of our senses when it comes to gaming and the overall experience is a combination of what we feel. Certainly, the sense of hearing cannot be set aside in gaming. After all, it is fun to hear the explosions and all the action in a game.
Summary: The Logitech G430 is worth every penny. Speaking of pennies, at $79.99, it is worth it. They are comfortable, quality, light, and they sound great. We didn't have much of anything to be negative about. It makes us wonder what their more expensive G35 or G930s are like.
Pros: Installation:, Logitech Gaming Software:, Audio Quality:, Comfort and Weight:
Conclusion: Logitech did a great job with the G430’s. They stuck with what worked on their G35 and G930 headsets as far as shape and audio performance while making the headset something that more people could afford.
Excerpt: Logitech has been on the top of their game lately, especially in regards to their lineup of gaming products. I recently reviewed the Logitech G700s Gaming Mouse, and was extremely impressed with it.
Conclusion: If you want the best positioning audio around i have to say that neither the G430 nor any 7.1 virtual surround sound headset can offer that and as a matter of fact in the case of some headsets i really suggest turning that option off when playing games.
Summary: Immersion is a key part of the gaming experience, and the Logitech G430 delivers truly engrossing surround sound for just $79. If you want the same design in red and can live with basic stereo sound, you can find the G230 for as low as $39.
Conclusion: Overall, the Logitech G430 headset is a quality product, but is it worth the $80 price tag? Yes, it is very worth it. In fact, we think the headset is worthy of a $100+, so you’re definitely getting a bargain here.
