What’s maintained is the angular chassis with reversible headband straps and breathable reminiscence foam ear cups.
Just like the G733, it’s merely trendy and comfy whatever the size of your gaming periods. The load loss does make the plasticy really feel prefer it may very well be simply damaged, although. In the meantime, audio and mic high quality doesn’t maintain up properly towards equally priced gaming headsets just like the HyperX Cloud Core 7.1and the Corsair HS50. If you happen to’re on the lookout for extra efficiency than fashion, you might need to look out for different headset choices. Regardless, the G335 is ideal if seems matter greater than efficiency or precise options.
Obtainable in black, white or mint, sufficient can’t be mentioned regarding the G335’s sleekness. Our mint coloured evaluation headset is offset fantastically by the lavender ear cups. For $10, customers should purchase eight totally different headband straps, although the mint, lavender and yellow one included was cool sufficient.
Past coloration, there’s an angular design that’s pretty minimal and futuristic, no matter vantage level. The no-frills bundle implies that the one on-ear controls is the quantity curler, because the G335 lacks a mic on/off swap. As a substitute, the one technique to minimize the mic off is by lifting the mic up.
Being a plug-and-play wired gaming headset implies that it’s basically appropriate with something that has a 3.5 mm jack. Multiplatform gaming fanatics might use this on each console they personal with out a lot fuss aside from PC.

Audio merely lacks the punch and readability of rival headsets. This implies the combo of gunfire, dialogue, explosions and ambient noise doesn’t sound as properly put collectively because the Turtle Seaside Recon 500 or Corsair HS50 – each priced inside $10 of the Logitech G335.

Utilizing a Tidal playlist to listen to its flexibility with music, the G335 works as an honest pair of headphones if audio nuance is not a precedence.

In the meantime, the headset couldn’t sustain with extra bass-heavy music like Southern rapper Massive Ok.R.I.T.
The brains of the G335 doesn’t fully match its magnificence, which is a disgrace. General, the angular and colourful design is what sells this gaming headset. At instances it might almost come off as a style accent if dealt with delicately. Simply don’t count on this flimsy but snug headset to deliver it when it comes to audio readability.
