Logitech’s new Professional X Lightspeed is its newest gaming headset to go wi-fi
Logitech has introduced a wi-fi model of its 2019 Professional X gaming headset known as the Professional X Lightspeed. It’s nearly an identical to the wired model, full with the identical aluminum and metal design, however there are a number of key variations. Going wi-fi isn’t even the largest perk; it’s really the USB-C charging. No different wi-fi gaming headsets that cost by way of USB-C come to thoughts, so on this regard, the Professional X Lightspeed in a league of its personal.
The opposite perk, in fact, is being wi-fi. The audio and chat are delivered by means of its included 2.4GHz USB Kind-A wi-fi receiver, and Logitech claims the headset can stay linked as much as 13 meters away — if, for some purpose, you end up 42 ft away out of your PC or gaming console.
Just like the wired Professional X, Logitech features a set of velour-covered foam ear pads with this new mannequin you can placed on if the preinstalled leather-like pads aren’t doing it for you. And just like my colleague Nick Statt’s impressions with the wired model linked above, I discovered that the general match of the Professional X Lightspeed is tighter than I favor. I generally wish to place one ear cup off my ear so I can hear what’s taking place in my condominium, however that shortly proved too painful to proceed doing.
One different space the place the Professional X Lightspeed differs is with its buttons. It has a devoted mute button for the microphone in addition to a rubber quantity knob close to the detachable increase microphone on the left cup. The wired Professional X has these options, too, although they’re positioned on the cable as a substitute.
Provided that a lot of the modifications and enhancements over the $129.99 wired model appear incremental, their $199.99 worth is somewhat surprising. Logitech could also be placing a premium on its headset because it has USB-C charging or simply as a result of its Lightspeed-branded merchandise often carry an enormous premium over the wired model. Both method, you’ll be able to undoubtedly discover cheaper wi-fi headsets on the market that present related ranges of efficiency and battery life. Although, that comes on the expense of Logitech’s spectacular software program options and USB-C charging.
