Summary: This headset has a well documented history for mic issues and there is a firmware patch on the logitech support page to fix it. While updating the Logitech gaming software I installed that firmware patch. While plugged into the provided USB adapter, all sound was a static mess.
Pros: -Sound was crisp and sounded great when working. -build quality respectable for the price range
Cons: -very under powered -didn't work for long, see other comments
Summary: This headset is awesome, I made the switch from a Corsair headset and I am not looking back! It is very comfy around the ears, headphones block out heaps of noise while giving you an awesome sound experience, mic is very clear and noise cancelling is done right.
Not bad for my first time gaming headset...Not bad at all!

Pros: Got a recommendation from a friend to try this G430 as a middle-grade headset...so I did with reluctance, but as it turns out, I'm more than impressed by it. I actually thought it's quality, comfort and performance would only be okay, but it really overshot any expectations. I was always having f...
Cons: _ It doesn't have fancy LED lighting, but it's really no big deal. I don't play in the dark anyway. _ the cord length from the volume control clip on is a tad too long and have been tangled up on occasion. _ The Mic attracts a touch more noise and makes it tougher to record voice commentary. _ It...
Summary: I bought a pair of these today going off great reviews on the internet. Upon opening they seemed okay. Very Flimsy and not that comfortable. They also were slightly itchy. Continuing on I went to try out the sound and microphone quality.
Summary: Within 32 days, my computer stopped recognizing it as Logitech G430, and instead it was "USB Advanced Audio Device". and come to find out, at some point or other that happens to everyone, regardless of OS or System, and no one seems to know how to fix it. Good Job, Logitech
Summary: I was able to get it for $60 for boxing day which is very reasonable for this headset, however, I don't think I would pay more than that
Pros: - Sound quality is really good - Mic is very clear - Comfortable
Cons: - Build Quality. This thing, as soon as I took it out of the box, felt like it was going to break apart. The cord is very cheaply made as well. To use with extreme caution but at least it has a good warranty.
Summary: Great for the price. I would strongly suggest not to ever use the USB hookup nor to download the software. I had many problems with all of my programs crashing that used sound files (ex. Firefox & iTunes) then coming back for a few seconds and crashing again.
