[section_title title=”Closer Look”]
Seeing as both the Logitech G633 and G933 Artemis Spectrum headsets are virtually identical (apart from the G933 is wireless), I figured it would be a good thing to show off both headsets together; no-one wants to read the same thing over and over and over and over and over…point taken?
Whereas the Logitech G633 comes with a USB cable for connecting up to a PC and comes with a 3.5mm for mobile phones/MP3 players, the G933 also comes included with an RCA cable for maximum compatibility with audio devices.
The Artemis Spectrum G633/G933 headsets look relatively stylish with lots of ample padding. This should provide oodles of comfort during heavy gaming sessions and with a hefty amount on the headband, Logitech certainly hasn’t cheaped out in this area.
On the left-hand cup, you will find the inputs to connect the G933 to your PC or chosen audio device.
Still focusing on the left side of the headsets, we have the control panel which features the programmable Logitech G-keys; something Logitech has implemented across from their legendary keyboard and mice design. These can be programmed to whatever you wish via the Logitech Gaming software application, which we will take a look at later on in the review, but also present, is an onboard volume control wheel. On the G933, there is a switch to select between the USB and 3.5mm input, whereas on the G933, this powers on the headset. This is due to the wireless nature of the G933 model which gives it an unprecedented level of mobility and flexibility.
It wouldn’t be a complete gaming headset without a neatly placed microphone, a very much needed feature if you intend to talk to people while gaming, or just generally talking online…
Exclusively on the G933 Artemis Spectrum, the cups feature removable panels which contain a couple of very useful additions. First of all, the left cup contains the USB 2.4GHz wireless dongle required to connecting the G933 to a PC. On the right cup, inside is a battery which obviously does provide power to the headset itself (it is wireless after all), but it is detachable which gives us the impression that it can be replaced in the future if it needs replacing.
If you didn’t already know (you should), the Artemis Spectrum headsets have built-in RGB lighting which again, is controlled by the Logitech Gaming software. It has multiple modes which include solid colour, breathing and a colour cycle. Both the logo and a strip on the cups can be customised; rather good right…
