I'd like to see these here: http://gaming.logitech.com/en-gb/product/g933-7-1-surround-sound-gaming-headset
There the upgarde to the G930's and the G930's ROCKED. I had a bad pair (Dodgy connection) Returned them and had a replacement the same day, 3 years later the only thing wrong with them is the Pad's need changing and thats through 16+ hours a day DAILY use. Battery lasts around 8-9 hours and IF you let the battery run flat and run it off the charging cable it does cut out for a second or two but you only have to put up with it for an hour and its good to go for the next couple of hours till you recharge it for the night.
Worth the money sound is crystal clear. Can't wait to get my hands on the newer version.

actually the makers off the product dont always sell it the lowerst price other companies can get lower prices because they buy in big and they let them get discount so they are cheaper like here https://www.alternate.nl/Logitech/G933-Artemis-Spectrum-Draadloze-gaming-headset-Headset/html/product/1224693?lk=7073
Anyone know if they'll re-launch this drop?
how much did they pay for it a lowest value?

This drop is over that after shipping and no where near a good of a discount since these are a little above mediocre headset.
These headsets are great, providing you get one that actually works. Mine has been nothing but issues. Disconnects when the microwave gets turned on, disconnected a couple times a day at first (nothing too bad), but after only 1.5 or so years of use, the battery's dying after about 30min of use, and disconnects every 10 or so seconds unless plugged in, and every 15min or so even plugged in. On the other hand, a friend of mine had one so long he wore the earcups and headband out before getting a new one, which has had zero issues for the several months he's had it. Logitech just needs to make their shit consistently, cause they're losing sales because of it.
Just had to pay inport tax £20 not happy but not massdrops fault. Fisrt impresouise are good.

I've owned a pair of these for a while. If you buy them, get metal replacements for the bracket between cup and band asap. The plastic bracket is notorious for breaking. I had to replace mine once a year for 3 years for this problem. The dongle is married to the headset. don't lose/damage it.
I have had these for awhile now. What people DON'T do is download the Logitech Gaming Software. That is the place where you can get your EQ's.... Its 2015, everything runs on software. I agree about the cups and the cracking at the hinge, but seriously how long do you want to own these things? 5 years?
The only good thing I can say about these is that they're wireless. The "surround sound" is meh at best and the general audio quality is not worth the price. The software is really sluggish and not the most intuitive. They also will only only run in wireless mode, even if they are plugged in. This mean that anytime someone near you wants to microwave something, you get to hear all the amazing sounds that it produces. I've only had issues with microwaves but a friend of mine who had these also had trouble because of his wi-fi causing interference. The battery life is not great and both me and my friend had ours start randomly disconnecting and make strange noises after only a few months. These are NOT worth your money or your time. I can't recommend these to anybody.
I guess I'll chip in with my own, positive, experience to counter some of the negativity here.
I purchased my set on 11/1/2010. I've used them regularly for Skype and gaming since then, on average once or twice a week for a few hours each time. In those 4.5 years they've never broken in any way. I charge after every session, and the battery is still holding up fine.
Unlike some wireless headphones, these will operate while simultaneously charging. So just get a long enough USB cable to comfortably wear at your desk, and you can use these indefinitely without worrying about a dead battery ending your session.
Skype calls sound absolutely perfect. I have no idea what that "reverb-faulty-driver" guy is talking about. I have no reverb problem in Skype. Maybe that's a thing on some computers, but not mine.
The volume wheel is perfect. It is nice to have the mute button, and there's an LED on the end of the mic you can see that lights up in order to confirm that you are muted. You can also just fold the mic up out of the way and it automatically mutes (and unmutes when you unfold it back down).
I am about 4 feet from a Wi-Fi router and there's no problem with interference. The only thing I've had interfere is the microwave, and for that to happen I have to be standing right in front of it.
In Battlefield 4, I have pretty good situational awareness and can tell where shots are coming at me from, at least in the horizontal plane. Admittedly I cannot tell if sounds are coming from above or below (vertical plane), but I'm not sure if that's a limitation of the headphones or the game engine.
For anyone with a Mac, these also work in OS X without needing to install any software or drivers. Surround does not work, but stereo does, and the volume/mute features work too.
It is true that these are not good musical headphones. That is not what I use them for.
At the end of the day, if these stopped working right now, I'd run right out and buy another set.

this is the best review i have ever read :)
Actionable_Mango
Just a comment on using while charging them. They come with a fairly long USB cable already. Should be long enough unless your PC is very far away.
Got these on newegg for 80 not long ago...

You can buy them refurbished for 50-70 USD and still come out with the same quality product. The failure rate on these is too damn high.

The driver and hardware of this headset is flawed in many ways. Logitech refuses to address the issues after four years and will not in the future. If these issues were fixed it'd be a REALLY good deal, however since these are present I'd recommend not purchasing one at this time.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1. The driver forces the headset to be viewed as a 7.1 surround sound headset REGARDLESS of what mode it's in.
Consequences: Everything has to convert from 7.1 to stereo in the stereo mode, this has some audio artifacts. Stereo sound has a reverb when on (virtual) surround sound mode. This means if you're gaming in surround sound, your music and Skype calls will have reverb and not sound "right" at all.
2. When switching to stereo sound to fix the above issues, the (forced) 7.1 to stereo conversion is incorrect.
Consequences: The audio in games that support surround sound but don't let you force stereo mode is now broken. The "center" channel is only on the right, and the "subwoofer" channel is only on the right. This is absurd, but is unavoidable. It is probably a hardware issue. Games like Minecraft which do not let you force stereo sound are affected.
3. While playing both virtual surround sound and stereo audio, distortion and weird effects take place as if the headset was having interference problems.
This is a confirmed driver issue. Many people (me included) have found that extremely old drivers (which many cannot use because they do not support new Logitech devices) do not have this issue, and thus it is not caused by wireless interference.
4. Randomly the headset refuses to charge. If this is a manufacturing defect, it is very common and you should keep it in mind. Other common issues that might be defects include: Power button not working, battery life depleting quickly, battery gauge completely incorrect, battery life not as advertised.
5. The headset is VERY sensitive to 2.4 GHz interference and you will find your headset constantly disconnecting (taking ~7 seconds to reconnect) if you're near a router on that band or other devices that use that band.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The only solution to some of these problems is to go into device manager, and uninstall the Logitech driver, forcing it to use generic Windows drivers. This forces the headset to be viewed as stereo, but removes many of the Logitech features such as customizing buttons or seeing battery life. The disconnecting issue remains, and of course the hardware defects will as well.
I would love for Massdrop to boycott this product and many others until they see to these horrid issues and stop ignoring them.
Have these. If there is a lot of 2.4 Ghz activity (wifi + some other controllers) then it will disconnect from time to time and that is very annoying. Also I had driver issues with realteck in MSI G97 Gaming 5 motherboard and windows 8.
Other than that I am actually quite happy. Surround is a bit of a gimmick, but on some games it does sound slightly better (however I would agree to go with open back design). I cannot complain about build quality as it's in very good condition after 1 or so years of usage.
IMHO - go for something else, unless you live not in an urban area.
I have these, after a couple of years the wireless capability declines. I cant go 4 feet from my PC without breaking up. They are heavy. The battery life is non existent after continued usage. I loved them in the beginning but quickly out grew them. I don't have any money to upgrade so I deal with it, I would go with a lighter, wired set up personally.
Why massdrop, why? These are terrible on every front! Wireless? Yeah like your home phone, also interference from microwave, router, wifi adapter.... Everything is on 2.4ghz so when its not beeping because of a stupid battery issue its either dropping out or crackling. Save yourself $100 and just play your games with your head in the toilet bowl (flush for added realism).
This headset is really good BUT it has a serious design flaw that lead them to break. I've exchanged mine 3 times before giving. There's lots more people reporting the same as you can see here https://forums.logitech.com/t5/Logitech-G-Headsets/Logitech-G930-Wireless-Headset-design-physical-break/td-p/818221

So they are crap is what you are saying, don't be shy, any gamer knows these are craps.
This is the worst headset and a waist of money
i've had this for 3 years, and it still works..............about 90% of the time. sometimes it starts to give a very loud ping that won't go away until i unplug the USB cable. started happening after about 2 years of ownership.
i paid $90 3 years ago on a sale in amazon.
Here's my personal review on this:
PROS:
-one of the best quality mics i've used, very convenient to slide up or down. everyone can hear me clearly. -you can mess around with sound profiles if that's your thing -Very good for the price, considering that it is wireless -feels confortable enough for me to wear them on long gaming sessions -emulated surround sound, it works
Cons:
-DO NOT EXPECT any sound quality whatsoever out of these. these are clearly "gaming" headsets, not audiophile. get a sennheiser 600/650 for that. -Earcup covers will start to rip after about 1 year or so of everyday use -it does not turn on on the first try.....EVER. always have to press and hold the power button TWICE. maybe it's just my unit. -moderatelly high rate of failure, not exactly quality headphones. mine has the issue of a LOUD ping that i cannot remove unless i completelly remove usb and plug back again.
again, considering that it is wireless and a gaming headset, at less than $100, this thing is worth every penny.
want to get a headset with good quality sound?
then look elsewhere:
atx m50x for BASS heads sennheiser hd598 for entry level audiophile <--very good for the price Sennheiser hd600/650 <---this will give your ears an orgasm if paired with a decent amp
and possibilities are endless on top of the 3 i mentioned, since PRICE is the limit.
I bought these about a week ago, to be honest upgrading from a wired headset to wireless is amazing! I walk around my house, go get some food, open the door all while i am talking to my friends on teamspeak. Headset is very comfterble, very well built and the buttons on the side are very cool. There is only one problem with this headset and that is the battery. Many times I get beeps alerting me that the battery is low and only has 24 minutes left. After 24 minutes passes it changes to 2 hours left and then to 4. Overall the battery is weird but it lasts for 4-6 hours without a doubt. This is not a perfect headset but if you are looking for a cheap wireless gaming headset, THIS IS FOR YOU! If you want to upgraded from a previous wireless headset, I recomend buying something else but for the budget price this headset is 8/10.
I've had this pair replaced 2x for a loose charging cable. The headphones usb connector just does not last and I would not recommend purchasing them.
A word of warning from someone who has had 3 of these... They ALL cracked in the same place from normal usage and placed on a stand. On the inside of the headset near the pivot point they have a plastic plate that holds the pivot in place. That plastic plate has broken every time and viewing their forums it seems to happen to a lot of people. If you are in for this, good luck. While it lasted is was great for games though.

Exactly the problem I've been nursing on the set I own right now. So sad that this is a repeating issue, as for everything else, these make a capable everyday wireless headset.
loosegravel
I owned at least 2 of these, possibly 3 and same issue. All 3 broke in the same place. If they just replaced that piece with harder plastic or metal of some kind there would be no issue.
Wow, comments here are much worse than anywhere else.....

Well, Logitech had plenty of time, several years, to improve this product.
As for a wireless headset, you'll find nothing cheaper in value/quality. So, meh.
I'm going to pop in here since I used these headsets for a bout a year. If you're looking for audio, go away. If you're looking for surround. Go away. Open headphones do it better. If you're looking for a capable wireless headphones with a mic and onboard buttons, this may be your ticket. But I personally would save and get the ATH M50s for 30ish more bucks.

lol games produce sound. these suck at producing sound. m50s are good at producing sound. No, you won't get 7.1 surround but most games that support it have good simulated surround sound over stereo speakers anyways.
Xnihil0
The problem is m50's are way overpriced, they were good at 80 dollars but prices have risen. For gaming there are much better choices (hd 558/598, akg q701)
Well, If you want to save $3.67 then this is a good deal.
I used to have one of these for a year and it was problematic from day one with disconnecting issues. Contacted Logitech support 3x regarding the headset disconnecting every minute or so and they didn't help at all. The software also had bugs on windows kept tabbing me out of whatever window I had active and after about half an hour, an error message window popped up saying "Please reconnect your Logitech g930 wireless headset". Forget using them around Xbox one consoles because those caused huge signal drops. A few weeks ago the headset got to the point where it was making beeping noises and disconnecting every 10s from what I can only assume was a software update because I have friends with identical issues. I've since upgraded to a hyper X cloud 2. I hope not too many of the units end up as bad as mine was but it was bad enough that i wrote this review. Best of luck to you all.
This is perfect for me that lives in Sweden where this headset retails for around 150 usd
