After dropping the high end Wireless Pro X headphones last year, Logitech changed gears with its first wired in-ear (IEM) monitors for gaming. The G333 costs $ 50, comes in three colorways, and is aimed at gamers looking for a more compact (and potentially more comfortable) fit compared to in-ear headphones. Opting for wired headphones is certainly a movement to the left that is out of step with the rest of the market, which is home to many less than $ 100 wireless options. But, maybe, that’s the point.
If these sound familiar to you, it’s because they were technically advertised back in october as part of Logitech’s K / DA merchandise package. It appears to be an upgraded version of the Oculus 2 Logitech headset released in September. There are a few noticeable changes this time around, including a mic – which contains the primary buttons you’d expect to play, pause, and control the volume of your chats and a longer cable. Logitech claims not to reduce audio quality thanks to its two audio drivers, one for treble and midrange and one for bass. Given that they are on the lower end of the IEM price scale, we’ll have to see how good they sound.
The G333 comes with a 3.5mm jack and a USB-C adapter, so you can connect them to virtually any gaming platform, from Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo to PC and mobiles – and even Google Stadia. Plus, the vibrant colors (silver / light purple, black / bright blue, purple / yellow) add a touch of variety. You can grab the headphones today online via Logitech and a group of retailers.
