Expert Reviews of Logitech G533:
Closed-back earcups are a bit of a science to get right. These wobbly, circa-30-degree twisters should, at least in theory, clamp down on a head of any shape. But we found an element of looseness, even after properly adjusting the decent ratcheted…

Logitech’s G533 doesn’t have quite the same breadth of options as the G933, but a more restrained design and a bargain price make this a strong contender for best wireless headset.
There’s not much to complain about with the G533, as they are exceptional by practically every measure. They are comfy, offer superb audio for games and music, and the retractable microphone is simply brilliant. I just wish I could use them with my phone and my console like the Arctis 7 or Revolver S, then they’d be perfect.

The Logitech G533 wireless is a decent headset, but doesn’t stand out in a competitive market.
This headset design is something new and you can also use this one as a regular pair of headphones. The sound of the headset is also enough.
The design of this headset is good and stylish and but little bit wide and made of more glossy plastic. Also, it doesn’t come with the 3.5 mm jack. The sound is also very impressive and the mic sound is good enough for the price.
Besides the sound, being the top priority that I was looking at how the stylistic choices of designing this headset was exactly going to impact the sound and also the wear-ability of the headset over time. You got fabric and cased cups around the ears and compared to how they look like with the G430, you can tell that they kind of cut a few little design aesthetics out of the way as opposed to what you find on the Logitech G 433.
It’s not made out of plastic but not only the little hinges that are holding the cups in place with the headband a little bit tighter, not only keeping it very sturdy and firm in its place whenever you’re moving them about but also no noise when you move the headset hear and there.
There’s been a lot of complaints online with this headset over the build quality and those are pretty well warranted. Now, the materials they used and they’re not bad, it’s your standard plastic build gaming headsets but where it kind of falls off though is with the joints, everything is actually very loosely put together.
There’s a lot of like glossy plastic which of course is a fingerprint magnet which I don’t like and you would think it with it being a plastic build that it would be on the lighter side but it’s actually even on the heavier side of headsets. The weights not a bad thing because when you put it on your head everything is actually very evenly distributed. So, you don’t actually feel that weight and it can almost disappear. It is quite comfortable to wear for extended periods of time.
This is somethings looks very wide which is quite weird. I mean, it is very ridiculous. So, I wouldn’t recommend wearing this out in public which you honestly couldn’t do anyway because they removed the 3.5 millimeter headphone jack. So, this is a strictly PC and ps4 headset only which is kind of sad.
I do like the design, I don’t like the glossy plastic but it’s very understated in an over-saturated gamer aesthetic market. There’s no unnecessary RGB lighting as well as it has a lot of adjust-ability from for small to extremely large heads. There’s a metal piece that goes through the headband itself. So, it is very sturdy but the steps themselves are like this plasticky rubber. So, I don’t see it breaking because of the rubber element to it.
These hinges whether it be the ones that are holding the cups are the ones that allow for that 90 degree swivel that it’s very familiar to the ones that you find on the G430. To make it a little more comfortable to put them around your neck and then just kind of move them out of the way and set them to rest on your chest but doing that very frequently could eventually bring back that squeaking sound.
You got your traditional aesthetics whereas you got the little fabric inside of the headset, you can still find that in previous headsets as well, as well as the little spongy piece underneath the headband for comfort-ability on top of the head. You can always adjust the band of the headset to fit your head.
Logitech went ahead and threw in a second pair of pads. They’re made out of a different fabric then you’re kind of used to with the other Logitech headphones because this fabric doesn’t breathe as much as the other one because these have little functions decide to allow air to can filter it in between. So, those are ideal for not only breathing but also keeping your ears refreshed as much as possible.
The pads came as alternatively which will probably keep you a little warm because of the fabric but at the same time, they’re spongier and they’re much more cushiony. So, these are ideally for the ones that you want to use during long gaming sessions whereas the other ones which came with the headset are the ones that you want to do for whenever you’re using the headset for recreational use.
As for the ear cuffs themselves, you can get past the sand papery feeling material. They are quite large and can very easily go around most people’s ears. I also like how the drivers on the inside are at an angle. So, even for the largest of ears you shouldn’t run into too much of an issue of your ear rubbing against the drivers on the inside which can be quite irritating which is why I feel like this headset wins a lot in the comfort department.
You will get the traditional 3.5 millimeter jack cable. It’s a very lengthy cable, it’s not as long as the one for the G430. Also, this is a significant improvement because it’s still a little bit long especially when you take it out in public and you want to go to the gym, you have to take a really hefty chunk of this cable and put it away in your pocket but at least this time around they threw in this little clip. This time around instead of being that really obvious neon blue, they colored it in black, it’s just a threaded black with fabric wrapped around the wire.
Furthermore, they threw in little details to just make this really cool of a cable. On the cable you have the clip and on the other side you got the microphone button that allows you to switch your microphone on and off which is pretty traditional function. They added a little grip texture to that button, so it makes it really nice and firm to flip that switch on and off unlike the other one. So, little things like this they continuously improved over the last gaming headset and those little things kind of pile up to make a really satisfying experience but not as satisfying as the volume notch or the volume wheel on this module.
The wheel itself is made out of this really thick rubber and of course, it’s got that grip texture not only that but it rotates an awful lot before stopping at either extreme, so turning it really tough and it gives it that quality feel to the overall cable.
The next one come with the Logitech G433 is the USB adapter. You pretty much take your 3.5 millimeter cable and plug it with the cable. Now, you got yourself an input for USB. So, you can plug this into pretty much anything that takes USB ideally the PC and pretty much any function that comes out of this headset whether it be to listen to audio or to give audio out with the microphone happens with just one cable by using this adapter. It’s also functional with the USB inputs on console such as the ps4 and Xbox one.
The other cable that serves pretty much as the function ideally is the splitter, the 3.5 milimeter splitter. You plug in the 3.5 millimeter and it splits up your two functions into two separate cables which is one for the mic and then the one for the audio and this is pretty much for people who have either a desktop or laptop that has two separate jacks for the headphones and for the mic.
The last cable is going to be what they call the mobile cable. This is mainly for use with any kind of mobile device whether it be a cell phone or even a tablet. I think it’s on par with the 3.5 millimeter cable but it does not have any kind of fabrics surrounding the cable. This is just your basic rubber and the little module is way smaller and that’s because this is for usage with your phone when you’re either listening to podcasts, music, or even taking calls, you just plug it in like so and then with this module you have a button on one side with that textured grip is pretty cool but this time that controls your microphone so when you press it you can talk.
On the other side, there’s a little hole and that’s your microphone but if you’re just listening to music or podcast pressing the button will pause it and then pressing again will resume it.
On the left ear cup is where all your controls are going to be housed. You have a micro USB port for charging the headset, there also is a volume wheel which the steps are so light, they’re pretty much non-existent. So, it’s very hard to dial in accurate volume raises with the wheel. It has one G key which is the major difference from the G933 and it has the on and off switch that has a LED indicator to let you know when it’s on / charging. On the ear cup you also have the microphone which we’ll get to in just a minute. On the right ear cup you have nothing. The battery life is rated at 15 hours per charge and I wish it maybe a little bit better.
This also has the Logitech G hub software which is interesting because even in beta a Logitech still has the best peripheral software out on the market. I absolutely love what they do a software because they never run into really any bugs and I love that. So, you can see a list of your devices. As you can see, it has a very clear battery indicator with a percentage which is something that I love and to get into all the settings, you just click. So, it opens up automatically to this screen here which just basically lets you mess around with your volume which why is that all the way down.
You have side tone, mic volume, you can enable or disable surround sound, you have three separate rooms to choose from for DTS 7.1 which is some of the best surround sound I’ve ever heard and you can mess around with the equalizer you can either make a custom equalizer or you can choose from some of the presets. If you really want to dive down into it you can also make macros for the G key to do specific things and you can swap between the G key and the default settings, so very simple and straightforward.
The mic is the boom mic that Logitech throws in for the G433 which is detachable with a 3.5 millimeter jack on one end. The entire microphone itself is kind of covered in this very bendy rubber, in fact, it’s very flexible so that you’re able to maneuver it and place it. The only part that isn’t is the end with the actual microphone components which you have with the nice little foamy bits as well as a side with the little hole designed to cancel out noise as best as possible. We can’t exactly expect the noise canceling to be 100%.
The sound of the mic is obviousely not going to be the absolute best. This is essentially just to get your voice to be heard and chat or if you want to do something really quick with the gaming headset Now, there is a little bit of a hiss happening in the background that you sometimes hear with the majority of gaming headset microphones but I’m confident that when you use the headset and hear the sound, that hissing is not going to be there and that’s because this noise canceling section of the mic is actually doing its job and cancelling out as much as the background noise as possible and trying to avoid isolation as possible.
I was pleasantly surprised by how clear but not top-quality but very clear and audible. This is a very decent microphone, it’s obviously not one of the best but you can only do so much with a gaming headset.
Now, there have been lots of complaints about the microphone on this headset as well. This is definitely one of the areas where they did cheap out on a little bit which tends to be what happens most with gaming headsets in general. There’s a lot of compression because it has a very aggressive noise reduction. Also, you can hear the keyboard sound but they are definitely a lot quieter than they are normally.
It has compression but it’s not the worst sounding headset. It’s definitely on the lower quality side but it’s something that’s passable. The range of connectivity never cut out. So, you definitely don’t have to worry about range with this one. It passes through walls without a problem and unless you’re going through like some serious concrete walls I think you should be able to go pretty much anywhere in the house that you want which is nice.
In this, the sound is pretty much on par with those of the G430 where you are dealing with surround sound for the majority of the devices that you’re listening from and it does a good job by balancing out the right amount of bass, treble and keeping a crisp and clear. It never really drowning out your headphones whether it be with too much of one channel over the other.
Now, audio fidelity is where I feel like this headset really shines and it’s the reason why I feel like people should really look into this headset. It’s using Logitech PRO G drivers which are 40 millimeter drivers I believe and they sound amazing. The base is boomy and there which is something that I really wanted to see in my next headset because I wanted to really be immersed with my gunshots and explosions. The mid-tones are there and not hollow which is something that you see a lot with 7.1 surround sound headsets and the highs are very clear but not overly fatiguing which is nice.
You really can hear footsteps and people you and you do get a really good sense of spatial awareness. So, this is definitely one of the better sounding headsets out there at least out of the ones that I’ve tried and they definitely get a major plus.
This headset does not get as loud but it gets loud enough. I do have to crank it up to pretty much 90% to get something that’s comfortable in game but it is loud enough for me and what that means for you is this will probably be extremely loud.
This is arguably one of the better headsets that you can kind of go out there, especially if you’re very much devoted to Logitech but you’re looking for little improvements on the past headsets while at the same time, looking for a way to make things just a little bit more convenient outside of the gaming sphere and also make it just a little bit easier upon yourself to deal with the cables.
You’ll be getting one of the better experiences audibly from your gaming experiences. The Logitech G433 gaming headset is a very high, enthusiastic and very recommendable for the mid range headset.
For the mid range price, it definitely performs at a mid-range level. If you’re in the market for a wireless gaming headset that you want to be well-rounded and you don’t really mind having a sort of cheap build, this could be the headset for you and I definitely plan on using it in the future.
