Making up for lost time during these first months of the year, Logitech’s gaming division joins the great flurry of new products with the announcement and immediate availability of the Logitech G Pro X Lightspeed, a wireless version of its top-of-the-range headphones released last year. So, with a design almost identical to the wired version, in addition to the jump to wireless connectivity itself, we can find some small additional touches.

Like the wired Pro X, this model will be designed around an aluminum and steel frame on which will rest a set of velvet-covered foam pads, plus a second set of additional pads with a synthetic leather covering. Inside we will find custom drivers again Hybrid mesh PRO-G 50 millimeters, with DTS 7.1 surround sound that will give us the enormous advantage of directional audio, and the possibility of identifying more precisely the location of our enemies within the game.
However, we will appreciate some changes in the button area, with a dedicated mute button for the microphone, as well as a rubber wheel for volume adjustment. And it is that although it is not about new functions, the fact of eliminating the dedicated controller in the cable forces relocating them.
Continuing the focus for sports professionals, the Logitech G Pro X Lightspeed headphones will feature un removable 6-millimeter microphoneBacked by Blue Voice software with real-time voice filters for better clarity and close to studio quality results.
The other benefit, of course, is the very addition of wireless connectivity, which will be borne by a single driver for audio and chat via a 2.4 GHz Lightspeed wireless receiver, which Logitech itself claims will maintain a Clear connection up to 13 meters away, and autonomy of up to 20 hours of uninterrupted use.
Currently only available in the American store, and with an estimated availability date for August, we can already find the Logitech G Pro X Lightspeed in the brand’s official web store, with a price that will go up to $ 199.99. A figure that seems not to have finished fitting among users, who although they recognize the high quality of audio from this peripheral, see an excessive price premium for the only inclusion of this wireless version.
