The Logitech G432 Gaming Headset owes a lot to its predecessor, the G430, especially in the looks department. Because of that they feel a little dated. They make up for it in their sound quality though, at least through USB where they rival headsets twice their price. Some of that quality is compromised when the USB soundcard is removed, but they still provide an enjoyable experience on consoles.

The most important aspect about the Logitech G432 is the sound, and for the price, it really can’t be beat in terms of sound quality and options. This headset contains all the technology of a $160 headset for half the price. Fantastic theater-like quality that includes the option for 7.1 Surround Sound and DTS Headphone:X 2.0 is a steal for the price.

The Astro A10 offers best-in-class build quality and cushy earcups, but it might be too heavy for some. It offers big, dynamic sound, but I give a slight edge to the HyperX Cloud Stinger, which delivers cleaner highs and mids by dialing back the bass a bit.
The Astro A10 won’t win any beauty contests, but compromising looks to focus on audio seems to have paid off here—it sounds way better than its $60 price tag implies.
In this, everything is good enough by considering the price. The design is simple and the comfort of the headset is also way better. The mic sound and the headset sound is also good.
This is the basic beginner headset of the Astro. Everything is good but there’s some problem in the mic and the comfort. The comfort is also will be okay but the mic sound is something horrible.
For the design of this headset nothing had changed in this one. Everything is same as like the older model when it comes to the design. The one thing changed is the removal of in line control and set the volume and mute functions directly on the headset.
The material chosen is little bit of feel like a plasticky. It’s not match with the price. Otherwise, everything is nice and simple. The headset is finished with a full of black color and the blue cloth on the drivers of the ear-cups which looks nice and simple.
This is basically Astro’s lower end headset. This is very sleek, very simple design unlike the Astro A40 headset. There’s also noticeable differences between them. The headset looks kind of small right and also there are some sliding adjustments.
When I opened up the headset I felt that it was rather small and at first glance, it felt very fragile. I was very concerned about that because Astro is not a brand known for making fragile headsets. This one is pretty flexible. I felt like it was some cheap plastic but it’s not really cheap at all. It actually feels very good, it feels like you’re gonna have to put in quite some effort to really break these headset.
The only place on this headset that I feel a little nervous about is the actual ear cup itself. So, in between the ear cup, the glossy part is plastic and I feel like if you hit it, you will break it. So be careful with that part. Other than that very sleek design, matte finish, no gimmicky angles or cuts or any sort of RGB flashy lights. It looks great and after a while, it fits great.
It’s really lightweight. Logitech also says that the headset weighs 303 grams. You can adjust your headband as per your head-size which is simple and clean. It doesn’t feel weird. This is pretty tight.The ear-cup material is like a sport mesh. It’s kind of not rough, it’s so different. But, it’s not uncomfortable by any means it’s just a different texture. I feel like it’s a bit that sound canceling like it definitely really locks your ear really well. It doesn’t feel uncomfortable.
It really cups the ears really well. It doesn’t feel weird. The mesh doesn’t feel uncomfortable. the foam on the top is also like a sporty mesh as well. So, it’s pretty much the same material all around for the ear cups and the top. It doesn’t feel uncomfortable, it doesn’t feel irritating. It’s very lightweight, it’s it’s not heavy crazy duty and the adjustable is metal that’s not plastic, so that’s really nice. It also has swivel, so you can also put them flat on you neck.
If you’re wearing this headset having the microphone kind of sit on your neck, it’s kind of an uncomfortable. The only thing that’s like annoying because the mic is not detachable.
It has some leather small cloth ear cups that are not swappable. So, you can’t change these out at all and and it does have a bit of a cushion. This cushion is little odd because when you touch it, it’s incredibly soft. When first time I put it on it felt a really hard. This doesn’t feel right, something’s not right. After a couple of hours of using the headset and playing with it, I felt like I wasn’t wearing a headset, it’s incredibly light.
Depending on the size of your ears, this may be in over the ear headset but this sits directly on my ears barely going over them and that’s okay. So, the headset after a while of breaking it, it’s incredibly comfortable. I do enjoy the headset fit, it does fit a little tight.
The headset is 7.1 surround gaming headset. It has apparently comfortable sport mesh ear pads. It’s got swell ear cups, so you can like move them. It’s got volume control, there’s a volume control knob on the side. It has 50 millimeter audio drivers so like more explosive and there’s more sound to it and there’s the six millimeter swivel to mute microphone. So, I know that it’s one of the previous Logitech gaming headsets that was basically very similar to this one. If you move the microphone up it would not mute it or this one is supposed to. The audio cables are also like 2 meters long. For the price range, it all sounds good.
You will get the adapter to use for the headset for both the PC and the consoles. Due to the adapter you will get the better sound from it, this is how it works. You just plug in the jack and then you just plug it into your computer. There’s also another option of using it by the Y splitter cable, as usual one is for the microphone and the other one is for the headset. So, you have two options of hooking it up, so you can use the adapter or you can just use the two splitter cable.
Inside the box, you also get actual audio cable itself. Now, this cable is 6.5 feet long. One really nice feature that I do like about it is that it does have inline volume control, wipe it all the way to the left for max volume all the way to the rights for no volume at all. This is rubber cord, I prefer threaded cables because they’re they just feel nicer, it gives it a more premium feel to the headset.
On the left ear-cup, there’s the microphone. So, you can swivel it down because you can angle it. When you move it up, it’s supposed to mute the microphone.
If you use this microphone instead of something other costly mic, definitely use the other adapter because this is being directly plugged in to your motherboard is not good. When you plug the USB adapter, the sound quality is way better. So, this is my suggestion if you use this microphone, just use the adapter it’s gonna make the the microphone quality just so much better. If you have that free USB port on your computer just use it because it’s gonna make your microphone quality sound way better for what it’s worth for the G432.
The mic sound quality in the ps4 by using the USB adapter and the Y splitter cable directly, there’s the little bit of difference you can receive it from using both of them. To want a lot better sound in the ps4, you have mess up with the settings of ps4 like settings devices and audio devices.
The microphone itself is attached unfortunately but it is a flip to mute microphone. So, while it is in its vertical position, it is muted and then you just simply flip it down to go ahead and engage in communication. It is pretty flexible, so only thing is is that you have to be careful because if you put away too close to your mouth, it’s just gonna sound horrible. So just keep it a good distance and you’re gonna be able to get some good sound out of your microphone.
Having tested the mic on the ps4, I also did the test on the PC, it’s kind of the same configuration. I’ve tested with the mix amp connected directly to the PC via USB. One drawback that it does not come included with an adapter for PC sound cards which may or may not be a big deal that depends mostly on your setup.
There are three important things in the headset is the build quality, mic quality, sound quality. The Astro A10 has pretty good build quality considering the price and it has really good sound considered a price but the microphone falls incredibly short and it’s really weird because when I tested with connecting it directly into the controller of the ps4, it’s a way better than using the mix amp for the microphone. I feel the mic sounds great when using it but when I record it and listen it after a while, it doesn’t feel like that.
The G432 is compatible with the Logitech G hub, it’s pretty much a program that pretty much brings all of your Logitech gear together in one app. If you want to mess with it to get better sound quality to just mess with all the settings for the headset. You just click on the actual headset itself, you can do noise removal, you can change the value in the microphone, side tones. You can enable the surround sound so my best advice for you guys to do is to use the USB adapter, do not use the Y splitter. So, definitely take advantage of this application because it’s really useful for getting the best quality for sound out of your headset.
The experience of sound other than in gaming is impressive and nice. The headset sounds good for the normal song but I tried to the bass heavy or deep songs, the sound of it can’t get into that level. The same problem is in watching videos and movies where the mids and highs are god but the deep bass is the problem. Also, it is little bit muddy sound.
For gaming it’s quite good. Use the surround sound and also the G hub software. By setting the equalizer in the software you can get the lot better sound.
When it’s about the the audio of a game, there’s a few games I really like to do this with and one of them is “The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt”. So, I can hear the seagulls and the birds off in a distance to crash into the waves. I can hear the doors open and off to my sides all the peasants and everybody walking around town. I can even hear like the rattling of the chain Lincoln the grand master wolf farmer and the sound tracks. I can hear all the people off into the distance. It just sounds very rich. It sounds really great.
I tested out different kinds of games. In the action games, I can clearly hear the footsteps, gunshots and everything. I was able to kind of determine where things were coming from I could even decipher the sounds of the vehicles themselves. When it comes to sound, the headset sounds really damn good for what it is and for how much you paid for it to set. Actually I used mix amp to listen the little better sound. So, the sound maybe differ. So, it definitely adds a little boost to the sound quality but I have used headsets before using the mix amp and not gotten really great sound. So, the headset itself does help with the sound quality.
As far as like playing the game like PUBG in the division, I mean the gunshot sounded great, the explosion sounded great. The directional abilities of the headset were incredible. I was able to determine where people were coming from, where gunshots were coming from, what vehicle was approaching it from what direction. So, if you’re trying to use this to gain some sort of an advantage when it comes to your audio when you’re playing multiplayer games, this headset will help you.
Overall, for this price range of headset, I feel like it’s worth your money. If you’re in front of budget, the one thing I will say though as it definitely has that like squiggle sound when you shake the headset, it’s kind of a thing you’re moving it you won’t really hear it too much but it’s kind of thing that’s annoying. It’s also little bit tight fit for your head.
Sound wise, it sounded great it’s not super crazy bassy but there’s definitely some good quality in the sound and it’s definitely fun to use it. So, if you like all the features you can buy it.
The thing here is the mic quality as often is the case was sacrificed in order to get really good sound quality and pretty good build quality. But, when it comes to the price, under $50 you can choose this one but for above $50 you may try any another headset which is good at everything like sound, build quality and also mic.
