In the past few months, Logitech announced its collaboration with League of Legends, and also dropped their latest K/DA collection of gaming peripherals that had fans extremely thrilled, and part of the K/DA line-up was a rendition of the lightweight G733 Lightspeed Wireless Gaming headset, often considered as one of the market’s lightest and most comfortable gaming headsets.
The G733 is one of Logitech’s bolder and sleeker designs compared to the rest of its lineup, such as the Pro X Gaming Headset and the G Pro X Wireless Lightspeed Gaming headset. When it was first released, the G733 was deemed as one of, if not, the lightest gaming headset of Logitech.
Now it has developed another, and Logitech has pulled a fast one on us and dropped the latest G335 Wired Headset, which is essentially a wired version of the G733, which makes the G335 even lighter, and priced at half of its wireless version.
Out of the box, the new G335 rocks the same bold and clean look as the G733. There is a slight colour variation in terms of its headband straps, but the headset sports the same unique curvature design. The G335 comes in three different colours, White, Black, and Mint (only Black and White for folks in Singapore).
The biggest difference of all between the G733 and G335 lies in its name – the G335 comes wired with a 3.5mm audio jack, ideal for those who aren’t fans of charging their peripherals constantly.
Since the G335 is made entirely out of hard plastic like the G733, our first impression was that it looks or feels cheap, but after using it for weeks, we re-looked our conclusion because it comes with more merits than flaws.
For starters, the material was selected for a particular reason – flexibility. The G335 is durable enough to make the headset extremely flexible for a comfortable fit. While we were a little worried at first since the frame of the headset seemed a little small, the suspension and flexibility of the headset were rather surprising and managed to provide utmost comfort even after an entire day of use.
Truth be told, having tried so many headsets, Logitech never fails to provide comfort – the G335 might be one of the most comfortable in the market that can sit on our ears, without a wee bit of annoyance or irritation.
While heat might be an issue in a humid environment like Singapore, the G335 managed to ease through our afternoons without trapping too much heat in our ears.
The other most notable difference was the weight of the headset, compared to the rest of Logitech’s models, the G335 is incredibly light, weighing only 240g: that’s 38g lighter than the already ultra-lightweight G733.
Additionally, the headband strap complements the weight of the headset and makes you feel like you’re free of a headband. It never felt like that was a headset sitting on top of your head. Besides that, the straps are reversible and can be removed or adjusted to a slightly tighter fit.
The G335’s ear cups sit over your ears, and features an adjustable slide which was more than enough for us to find the right fit. The headset also comes with a volume roller under the left ear cup.
As for audio quality, we can’t expect much from a headset under S$100. While the G335 offers crisp and audio clarity, there’s a huge lack of bass and it makes the sound feel bland. After all, the headset’s ultra-lightweight has to come in exchange for something.
The elastic flippable microphone on the other hand is also Discord Certified. Even though it isn’t perfect in terms of quality, it offers clear transmission and provides decent voice clarity for what it’s worth. Considering the affordability of the headset, the microphone does more than what we expected it to do and it lasted us through a few meeting sessions.
Last but not least, the new headset is missing the RGB feature from the G733, but it isn’t a huge deprivation in our opinion since the G733’s RGB was subtle anyway.
The best factor of the G335 boils down to its price. By reducing RGB and the wireless feature, Logitech managed to compensate by coming up with an extremely affordable headset well-suited for everyone or anyone with a budget. At only S$99.99, the G335 is an ideal wired headset even for non-gamers.
With such an affordable price point, the G335 is easily one of the most comfortable and affordable gaming headsets in the market right now, and it’s a great start for those who don’t want to pour too much investment into something too expensive.
