One Headphone Fits All
Logitech are no strangers to making audio devices. The company’s desktop speakers used to be the stuff of legends, and are now looking to replicate it in the form of gaming headsets. Enter the Logitech G633 Artemis Spectrum, a pair of gaming headphones that is set to be your be-all, end-all personal audio solution.
The Artemis Spectrum is a 7.1 surround-sound gaming headset, featuring Logitech’s own 40mm Pro-G audio drivers, made with hybrid mesh materials and soft pads that promises long-hours of gaming and music-listening fun.
The 7.1 audio support will only work once you install the Logitech Gaming Software. It is recommended that you install this as it allows you to also change various audio settings such as equalisers and such.
On top of that, the Artemis Spectrum can be used on various platforms and isn’t just limited to PCs. You can also use it for multiplayer game sessions on consoles as well, where voice communication is key to winning matches.
The Artemis Spectrum also supports simultaneous multiple-source mixing, whereby if you’re gaming on one platform, and someone calls you via Skype on another, you can easily answer the call without skipping a beat. You can even assign tasks to the three programmable keys on the Artemis Spectrum, allowing you to skip to the next song, activate push-to-talk communication, trigger instant in-game command combinations, and more.
As far as audio quality goes, the Artemis Spectrum is an amazing pair of headphones. Regardless if you’re gaming, watching a movie or listening to music, the headphones excels in all of it, with superb-sounding lows and mids and detailed highs, with just amount of bass to make your heart thump.
The microphone is also a noise-cancelling one, and during our tests, the microphone does help in filtering out noise and ambient sounds so that your chat goes through smoothly without interruptions.
Comfort is another feature that is boasted by Logitech, and in our opinion, this is a bit of a subjective point as in our case, even when we adjusted the headphones as wide as we can, the earpieces still felt a little tight around our heads.
CHIP CONCLUDE: The Logitech G633 Artemis Spectrum headphones sound and perform great regardless of what you’re doing with it. Definitely one to consider if you can get past the slightly tight fit of the earpieces.
