Logitech G Pro X
Logitech G Pro X Features
The Logitech G Pro X features a volume dial and a mic mute button about halfway down the audio cord. I asked a Logitech engineer why the company went with this design instead of an ear cup volume dial. He replied that pro players seem to prefer it there, although there’s no real mechanical reason for their preference; it’s just something they’re used to.
However, the biggest innovation the G Pro X introduces is the Blue Voice processing for its mic. If you install the Logitech G Hub software, you can turn on a filter, courtesy of the high-end audio company Blue. This will use software rendering to make your voice sound crystal clear, with a variety of equalization options.
On its own, the mic is fine. It recorded my voice clearly, without any fuzz and with sufficient volume. But it also sounded quite flat and bland. That’s where the Blue Voice functionality comes in. You activate Blue Voice, then select what kind of voice you have — a high and soft voice, a low and loud voice, or anything in between — then let the G Hub software render what you say in real-time.
With Blue Voice-activated, my recordings didn’t quite achieve podcast-level quality, but the sound wasn’t that far off, either. The G Pro X could be a boon for tournament players, but I also see a lot of potential for up-and-coming streamers who aren’t ready to invest in a big, expensive setup just yet.
