Logitech offers the G433 in a variety of funky colours, including bright red - like our test specimen, which is a nice change for once. A characteristic of headsets of this brand is that they squeeze your head relatively hard, and so does the G433. It is not unpleasant per se, but it is noticeable. The standard cushions of the earcups are also remarkably sturdy; you don't feel as pampered as is the case with many of the competitors.
The microphone is detachable. If you remove it, you walk around with fairly trendy looking headphones. Because the USB sound card is not stuck in the 2 meter long cord, you can also use the G433 on the go or with a laptop. Logitech also supplies a separate cable for this, as well as different ear cushions, should you find the standard ones a bit too rough - which we wouldn't find surprising.
For the USB sound card, the well-known Logitech Gaming software is available, in which you can set up more than everything: profiles per game, surround settings, etc. The surround, together with Corsair's, is the best in the test; however, the music playback, just like Corsair's, is not our favourite - we miss some detail in the mid frequency and it all sounds a bit flat, but of course that's also a matter of personal taste. The microphone is fine; even though it is not the cleanest im recording, this is common in this segment. In any case, no noise is recorded, which is already quite an achievement. On average, the G433 costs slightly more than 122 dollars. Given the excellent test results, this is certainly not too expensive.
