When we talk about wireless headphones designed for gaming, weight and autonomy are two of the most important factors since, in essence, users will intend to use them for long periods of time; For this reason, too heavy headphones would end up causing fatigue in the head and ears, while if their battery does not measure up, they would certainly not be suitable to be considered “gaming”. But before advancing events, we are going to see what these new Logitech G435 offer according to the manufacturer.
The technical characteristics of the Logitech G435

Weighing just 165 grams, these headphones automatically become the wireless devices designed for gaming the most. light from the extensive catalog of the brand; In addition, Logitech ensures that these G435s have been designed to provide maximum comfort to accommodate the maximum number of users possible. In this way, they have earmuffs of cloth breathable on a layer of padded foam, while its headband is manually adaptable to fit all head sizes (Logitech says they have been designed for small to medium head sizes, all said). They also have an optional volume limiter to take care of our hearing health.
The Logitech G435 combine wireless technology 2.4 GHz LIGHTSPEED patented by the brand with Bluetooth, which gives us a wide freedom of movement with a range of 10 meters, but also a large number of connection possibilities since this makes them compatible not only with PCs and consoles (they mention PlayStation not Xbox though), but also with smartphones and essentially any audio source that supports Bluetooth.
Apart from this, these headphones incorporate 40mm speakers made with neodymium magnets that guarantee rich and deep sounds, with remarkable bass. In addition, and although they are integrated into the ear muffs, the G435 have a dual mic With beamforming that eliminates the need to integrate a cumbersome wand, yet they are optimized for high-quality voice communication.
Of course, among the characteristics of this product they do not indicate that it has active or passive noise cancellation, so this could become a disadvantage given that being microphones integrated in the headphones themselves and not in a rod they cannot be unidirectional, so they will tend to capture all the sounds of the environment in which they are being used. This is something to keep in mind if you intend to use the headphones in noisy environments, since ambient noise could sneak into your communications.
It should also be noted that these headphones provide an operating autonomy of up to 18 hours, which is not bad at all, and they include a charging cable with a USB-C connector for greater convenience when connecting them (they also include a USB-A adapter to maximize compatibility). They include power, volume and mute buttons on one of the ear muffs, and in this case they lack RGB lighting as this would drain the battery more quickly. Finally, we must emphasize that they incorporate small details such as braille indicators on the left and right of the headphones so that blind people can immediately know in which position to put the headphones.
The Logitech G435 LIGHTSPEED wireless gaming headsets are now available in three color combinations (Black and Neon Yellow, Blue and Raspberry, and White and Lilac) at a retail price of 79.99 euros in the manufacturer’s online store, although it is true that we will soon see them at lower prices in the usual online stores in the country.
