Summary: I have had this headset for four days and its already broken. It got stuck in my chair because of the INSANELY LONG WIRE and i was trying to pry it out. As I was prying it out, i accidentally hit the wire with my knife. If you look at this product it talks about how the wire is strong but one little tiny accidental cut completely brakes it. My headset is now unusable and my mother is extremely mad at me. So thanks logitech.
Summary: I have had these headphones for a couple months now and i have loved them they are awesome for what i need them for but a couple weeks ago the microphone couldn't be anywhere except the bottom because it couldn't hold itself up. Then yesterday i tried to call a friend and the microphone doesn't work anymore.
Summary: After a couple of days using the product I notice right away that the volume level is low, even setting the software, windows and the in line control to full. then I switch from the USB adapter and connect them directly to my SoundBlaster card, the volume improves but I lost the 7.1 Dolby digital effects and the Logitech software simply doesn't detect the headsets while connects to the soundcard.
Summary: I purchased this headset 6-7 months ago. For the first 4 months no problems, great sound, mic picked up my voice fine. But now the mute dongle with volume wheel on it is breaking, have to put the wheel in just the right spot in order to get sound. The mic now wont stay up and just flaps up and down. It is disappointing because I thought Logitech was know for making quality products and I really like this headset when i bought it.
Summary: While some of you might think "Well Duke, just download older drivers, that should fix the problem!", sorry wrong. See the 8.40 drivers that everyone is talking about on the forums and websites for the G930(yes different headset) work great, because they are an older headset. When I tried to use this driver with the newer midgrade G430's, no worky. The headset is to new and the 8.40 LGS software doesn't detect it, leaving me out in the rain, with horrific sound quality.
Pros: Pros: Fits decently, a little snug on the ears and not as soft as some of my other ones. Has removable and washable ear pieces, that's nice. Adjustable (flexible) mic and can go up(physically move upwards out of mouth range) to cancel out some of your noise. Decent for a mid-grade headset. Nice blue color and they swivel so you can set them down flat on a surface.
Cons: Cons: So for anyone using a RAZER device (black widow, naga, death adder, anything) it seems that there is a conflict with the Synapse 2.0 and the LGS software that Logitech is currently using. Read the forums and look for the posts, it's been a year and this issue STILL isn't fixed. I've only been posting to their forums for 1 day, but I'm going to continue to do this and see what happens and if they give me my feedback. I can say that this is basically just a 2 ster...
Summary: I got these headphones in September for my birthday. I was fully stoked and loved the sound quality. But then the problems came. At first i the microphone started bugging out around midway through October. Then it stopped working all together. Now the nylon cord has begun to bend the wires and the sound has completely screwed up.there isn't much I can do about it as I have lost my receipt, and the box is gone. I liked them but they broke way too easily.
Pros: A very comfortable good sounding headset that works decently with glasses, the cord is long enough and had a fairly placed volume and mic controller. The mic has good flexibility and picks up voice great. People sometimes compliment me on my mic. I would and have worn this for more than 8 hours straight with little discomfort.
Cons: It finally cracked after almost a year of abuse, which is quite impressive. Everything still works fine, it's just aesthetics. Without glasses it's very comfortable, but even with them its still fine.
Summary: The G430 headset are really good, but my only problem my antivirus nod32 detects a trogan (virus) with the installation pack, which I downloaded from the logitech website. The computer will then freeze. After I remove the drivers, the computer runs normally. I doubt if the problem is with my computer hardware for I am using an I5 packed with 4GB ram.
