If years ago, we’d settle for performant devices with a less-than-ideal form, nowadays designers can wrap the most complex technology in something pretty to watch and own. Such is the case of Logitech G433, a pair of gaming headphones that not only sound great but look gorgeous. In fact, they might be the best-looking headphones created for gamers this year, as they won a GOOD DESIGN Award #soundmagic
Logitech was blessed this year with no fewer than 19 award nods from the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design and the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies. Among the products that won a GOOD DESIGN award is G433, a gaming accessory that boasts DTS Headphone:X immersive technology. If, in virtual reality, you can be fooled into thinking you are part of a second world thanks to the headgear, in PC or mobile gaming, the lack of closeness makes losing yourself in the game a bit more difficult.
But this is where DTS’ tech comes in. Headphone:X reflects the in-game environment, meaning the sound will surround you realistically in the real world, in your living room. You’ll feel part of the battle and hear the cries of your enemies as if they stood right next to you. Plus, if you want a specific sound recipe, the headphones allow you to tap in the Logitech Gaming Software (LGS) software and customize audio further.
The G433 headphones enhance the software performance with hardware “tricks” like an acoustic port positioned behind the driver and noise-cancelling boom microphone. The latter has a micro-pop filter which clears the incoming sound from fellow players. Design-wise, the accessory gained recognition thanks to sports-mesh ear pads that surround the ear. They don’t just give a nice feel and look to the device, but also keep it from slipping from the ear and allow your body to breath.
Best thing? You won’t have to break the piggy bank to purchase one. They’re available on the official site at $99.
Speaking of PC gaming, have you seen this crazy Borg Cube VR PC?
