The new headset shares its title with Logitech’s 2019 Pro X gaming headset. However, the addition of ‘Lightspeed’ to the title means it comes with some enhancements. Chief amongst these enhancements is the truth that this new headset is wi-fi. However, it nonetheless retains the placing but stylish design of its predecessor.
Of course, since it is a gaming headset, Logitech couldn’t simply go wi-fi through Bluetooth. There’s a latency concern there, in spite of everything. The Pro X Lightspeed makes use of a 2.4GHz community to hook up with your PC or console. Moreover, Logitech says it may keep linked as much as 13 metres away, which is extreme, however good to know.
The headset additionally provides a bunch of buttons proper on the earcup. There are buttons to manage quantity and mute the microphone. Plus, there’s a USB-C port for charging. That’s a fairly large deal as a result of USB Type-C will not be widespread in gaming headphones. It’s solely beginning to grow to be widespread in common headphones, and that too on the excessive finish.
That’s to not say this isn’t an costly providing. The firm is pricing the brand new headset at $199.99, which is a major soar from its predecessor’s $129.99 price tag. Whether that’s price distinction is justified by the USB-C port, and the wi-fi connectivity is one thing I can’t decide with out utilizing the headphone. However, at that price, it’s costly sufficient that you could be find yourself considering rather a lot longer about whether or not or to not buyt it, than you’d if it was priced at $129, and even $149.
