Logitech G733 Headset Review – Can’t Go Wrong
It has not happened often that I’ve liked a product from the first time I’ve used it.
Every product I’ve tested has had something small and annoying I’d notice within 15 mins of using it.
Added to this, many headphones have a glaring sonic imbalance making the review feel like work for the time I use them.
Not so with the G733 headset Logitech sent over. It’s likeable, flashy enough, comfy enough and most important, works out of the box.
Logitech G733 Headset Review
By now, after reading several of my reviews you’ll know I like Logitech. You’ll also know they don’t have perfect products but they made products that work well.
A great example is my personal Logitech G102 which sported a great sensor and buttons. Unfortunately I was unhappy with the weight and ergonomic – so now it’s my backup.
This is not how I would use the G733 and nor would my son after testing with me.
The G733 is comfy, you can use it for hours on end and had the right about of clamping pressure.
It’s easy to detach the boom microphone or move it into an angle that works for you. The ear pads are plush the headset insulates without active noise cancellation.
You get two unique textured buttons on the left ear cup, one for powering the headset off and the other for muting the mic.
You also get a rough-textured volume dial for adjustments in your operating system.

Watch the quick video review instead:
I’m of the view that if you don’t need to add audio processing to a piece of audio equipment, it’s designed well.
If you can use it for cross-purposes, even better. My testing involved Teams and Zoom calls, multiplayer games, single player games and intensive music listening.
As I’ve aged my ear has become more attuned to small inconsistencies, and while not perfect, the audio quality on the G733 sounds great.
The sound without any equalisation and DTS up-mixing is very detailed and neutral; the highs are possibly too sharp but turning the treble down -2 decibels fixed this.
A big part of the G733’s appeal is how it handles long sessions.
Between my son and myself, we gamed for hours on end and there were no complaints about discomfort. I head-banged harder than usual to my Doom Eternal Ancient Gods runs.
Thief: The Dark Project is usually my benchmark for sound equipment in games, and while I could not get OpenAL working with it, it sounded very crisp and clear.
Teams calls worked well but there was no LED on the boom mic. This led to some seance-like moments where I had to check if everybody heard me in that particular session.
Music is the ultimate test for me.
I would describe the overall sound of the G733 as warm and neutral. An awesome combination.
I was able to hear little pops and cracks in vinyl recordings and the G733 was able to reproduce some of Dave Tipper’s low end subtleties on his incredible albums Tip Hop and Jettison Mind Hatch.
Jon Hopkins’ Singularity was another which benefitted from the overall great neutrality in the G733’s sound.
The G733 handled older recordings like Baden Powell’s Os Afro-Sambas very well. That’s an achievement for any audio equipment. Well done Logitech!
While not my personal preference, Logitech’s G Hub software offers plenty customisation.
You’ll get two RGB clusters per ear cup which you can configure with 5 different settings. I opted for a plain turquoise.
I, of course, suggest turning lighting off if you want to save battery life. You’ll also get your audio equalisation options and DTS surround presets, which in my opinion, rob the G733 of the qualities of this great headset on stereo recordings.
They work great on surround sound sources, though. I found the bass boost to be a bit much.
There’s plenty to configure for the microphone which will allow you to fine-tune how you want to be heard.
Logitech’s G Hub’s features allow you to use Blue Voice which will automatically modulate your voice as per your preset and customisation.
Last but not least you will get 21 hours of battery life on a single charge, and the G733 will run as a wired USB headset off the supplied Type-C to Type-B cable.
The only thing missing on this headset is a bluetooth mode. I also like the build quality. It feels solid and flexible.
VERDICT: Do I recommend the Logitech G733 as a gaming headset? Yes. If you can manage the cost of buying one, go for it. You won’t go wrong with it.
