Logitech G430 is an excellent, comfortable headset with a number of features, and its upgraded with revolutionary Dolby 7.1 Surround Technology. Logitech is among the best-selling companies when gaming gear is the subject, but they often overprice their products.
According to that, you would expect a higher price for the Logitech G430, but surprisingly, it has a fairly affordable, i would say even low price when we take in perspective the quality of the headsets.

DOLBY HEADPHONE 7.1 SURROUND SOUND
Hear them before they see you
Hear the game the way the developer intended. Dolby 7.1 sound output appears to surround you as if it’s coming from all possible directions.
Sound control close at hand
Adjust the volume or mute in seconds. Audio controls are located on the 2.3-meter cable, so they are always within reach.
ROTATING EAR CUPS
Multi-positional ear cups
The ear cup pivots for a personalized fit, and rotates 90 degrees to lay flat. The lay-flat design makes them easier to transport and more comfortable when resting around the neck.
SPORTS-PERFORMANCE EAR PADS
A soft touch goes the distance
G430 ear pads are covered with sports-performance cloth for a soft-touch comfort, even after hours of use. Slip off the cloth cover to wash, and keep the headset in top shape.
Take a load off
Stay focused on the game, not your headset. G430 ear cups are designed to be slimmer and lighter, without skimping on audio quality. You might forget you’re wearing them.
Its surprising indeed for Logitech to make a very good product, and yet not overprice it. The Logitech G430 is practical example of that. The headsets offers number of features, decent sound-experience and perfect comfort. They are lightweight, and the ear-pads are soft and even washable.
The Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound is providing decent quality, but its not that powerful as you would expect. Also, the USB sound-card coming with the headsets is quite poor. However, for gaming purposes, and especially for CS:GO the Logitech G430 are great headsets.
Considering the affordable price, this is a headset for everyone who looks for quality and comfort, as well a great design and good software. Well, that would make all of us.
We obviously cant compare them with the Sennheiser GAME ZERO – which together with HyperX Cloud II are favorite gaming headsets of the CS:GO pro-players, but the Logitech G430 are damn great headset for CS:GO purposes, and if you cant afford one of the above-mentioned headsets, the Logitech G430 would be your best budget-friendly quality gaming headsets pick.
