Logitech Introduces G PRO X Gaming Headset Range with Blue VO!CE Technology

July 10 2019, 00:50
Following the acquisition of Blue Microphones a year ago, Logitech is already leveraging the brand with an expansion of the company's microphone and headphone technology to a new market segment. The company announced the new Logitech G PRO X lineup of gaming gear, designed to deliver high performing sound and voice transmission for gamers, combined with the comfort and durability required for serious gamers that play for long periods of time. The two new headsets are branded Logitech G, a brand of Logitech.

The new Logitech G PRO X Gaming Headset and the Logitech G PRO Gaming Headset were designed and engineered in collaboration with top esports athletes. The newest additions to the Logitech G PRO lineup of gaming gear also, and specifically the PRO X model, mark the debut of Blue VO!CE software, developed in partnership with Blue Microphones. Enabled using Logitech G HUB advanced gaming software, Blue VO!CE is a suite of real-time microphone effects that enables clean, professional voice communication. The result allows users to tune their voice based on individual preferences, so teammates can hear better, and the user can sound like a real professional.

“I was blown away by the difference that Blue VO!CE made in the way the headset’s microphone sounded,” said Hamlinz, TSM Fortnite. “They made a headset sound like a broadcast mic."

Out of the box, gamers can use the Blue VO!CE integrated recording and playback function to quickly select a preset filter profile and see which one sounds right for their voice’s unique tone and volume. And, for gamers interested in another level of customization, Blue VO!CE’s advanced mode offers a full set of pro-grade effects including a compressor, de-esser, and de-popper. Audio EQ profiles — tuned by esports athletes — are also available on G HUB Gaming Software. Users can fine tune their frequency response and save their own profiles or the ones they downloaded to an external USB sound card — and then apply to other PCs.

“Whether practicing, streaming or stomping the competition with some friends, clear communication is the foundation of great teamwork,” says John Maier, president of Blue Microphones. “With this first introduction of Blue VO!CE for Logitech G Pro X, we’re able to help gamers set up incredibly clean, professional communications with only a couple of clicks - so they can be confident they always sound their best.”

To help pros with their rigorous training and travel schedules, the new gaming headsets were developed from the ground up to be comfortable enough to be worn for hours, while still having incredibly high durability. This lightweight design is constructed from aluminum and steel and features soft memory foam earpads, and a premium leatherette-wrapped headband. An extra set of velour-covered earpads is included with the PRO X.

“Designing products with professional esports athletes ensures that our gear has everything you need to help you perform your best in game,” adds Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of Logitech Gaming. “For our new PRO Series gaming headsets, we collaborated with esports players from around the world to help us design a gaming headset that lets you hear and sound like a pro.”

Compatible with PC and mobile devices, the PRO X and PRO gaming headsets feature Logitech G’s exclusive Pro-G 50mm Audio driver. Crafted from a hybrid mesh material for high-quality audio, the headsets deliver deep bass and a round sound profile for highly cinematic audio. The PRO X additionally offers DTS Headphone:X 2.0 surround sound, to simulate the 3D environment of the audio’s original mixing stage.

The Logitech G PRO X Gaming Headset and the Logitech G PRO Gaming Headset are expected to be available on LogitechG.com and at global retailers in July 2019 for suggested retail prices of $129.99 and $99.99, respectively.
