Logitech G430 review: specs and price

The Logitech G430 ranks above-average in nearly every category, from the impressive mic sensitivity to its passive noise reduction features. As one of the most comfortable gaming headsets, the Logitech G430 features a full-size form design with earcups that not only fully enclose your ears but also work to increase sound isolation.

This model offers the potential for maximum bass and loudness levels along with 360-degree surround sound and a noise-canceling boom mic. The 360-degree surround sound is made possible by the Dolby 7.1 surround sound, allowing gamers to feel truly immersed in the action and intensity of the game they’re playing.

While not a wireless gaming headset, the Logitech G430 does come with a straight plug, which is ideal for when the jack is on the top or bottom of your player. The headset’s cable measures 2.3 meters, ensuring that it’s long enough to allow for freedom of movement.

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
Comfortable full-size form with earcups that fully enclose your ears. This model is loved for its increased sound isolation and the fact that it won't leak sound to your neighbors. It offers potential for maximum bass and loudness levels.
A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
5.has RGB lighting

Logitech G430
This device comfortably rests on top of your outer ears. As it doesn't block out everything from the outside world, it's preferred in places like office environments and recommended for outdoor activities.

Sound quality

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
This type of device allows you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise. Ideal for plane rides and morning commutes.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Impedance is the device’s electrical resistance to the current being pushed through it. The lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.
7.has a neodymium magnet
Logitech G430
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
