The sound quality
Logitech delivers in the supreme discipline. With the Logitech G733, you get an extremely powerful sound that convinces in many ways. Whether you’re using the headset for gaming or just listening to music, the sound is great. The headset gives you a choice of sound options. If you’re listening to music, you should choose the right stereo sound. The optional surround sound gives you a decisive advantage, especially in exciting multiplayer battles. Here, DTS Headphone:X 2.0 delivers an extremely impressive result. The preset modes already sound very good. But the software offers sound experts the possibility to create their own individual sound.
Of course, the G733 cannot keep up with high-priced competitors that cost more than 200 Euros. But this only becomes really clear when listening closely. For example, the sound stage of the headset becomes a bit blurred when you listen more closely at higher volumes. Nevertheless, it delivers impressive depths in action-packed moments. With Doom, the bass was pounding in my ears. What I noticed especially positive in various games was the enemy tracking. The surround sound of the headset is really impressive in this respect. But also the mix between the different scenes was very well balanced. No matter if it was a calm dialogue or an exciting exchange of blows. The headset always offered a very neutral sound and reproduced every moment very well. Here you can only grumble at the highest level. However, I could not detect any quality differences between the individual playback media. The Logitech G733 is suitable for PC, Mac and PS4. On all three systems the headphones sounded equally good.
Unfortunately, Logitech has also made compromises in the design of the microphone. The recording quality is unfortunately not very good and unworthy of a 150 Euro headset. You can still make some adjustments with BLUE VO! CE to optimize the sound, but you need a lot of patience to get a good result. I am therefore not particularly convinced by the microphone. But listen to an unedited recording without BLUE VO!CE:
Using the Logitech G Hub software, the G733 can be customized to suit your personal preferences. For example, you can switch between the different sound modes. In addition, an equalizer allows you to edit your own personal tonal sophistication. This allows you to customize the headphones to suit any game genre. By creating individual profiles, you can then easily provide the right sound at any time. But the software does not only allow you to edit the sound. You can also adjust the RGB lighting of the headset.
The lighting is quite impressive. What I particularly like is the fact that Logitech also stands out from the competition in terms of RGB. After all, the manufacturer does not install the light strips on the sides of the headset. Instead, they are located at the front of the headset. On a PC, the G Hub software can be used to turn off the lights when not in use.
The G733’s battery should last up to 29 hours according to manufacturer Logitech. But this specification only corresponds to reality if the RGB lighting of the headset is switched off.
