Logitech G933 Artemis Spectrum
Gamers are inherently a bit wary about wireless tech, but given how far it’s come in the last few years, it’s time to give it another look. Take, for example, the Logitech G933 Artemis Spectrum headset (I paid EUR 154,34 /CHF 174.21 Inc. Packaging). This peripheral delivers phenomenal sound for both gaming and music, a robust set of extra features and a number of ways to connect to your favourite devices.
For most of this review, you could (and should) consult another review of the Logitech G633 Artemis Spectrum — with a few minor exceptions, the G933 is exactly the same product. Like its wired counterpart, the G933 possesses large, plush ear cups that swivel, as well as a padded headband. It’s a large device that takes a little doing to sit properly on the noggin, but once it’s there, it’s there until you take it off.
Like the G633, the G933 has over-the-ear cups with soft fabric and a lot of give. The device is equally as comfortable as its wired counterpart, but has the added benefit of not needing a wire. Aside from that, it doesn’t seem to be noticeably heavier than the G633, so you can still wear it for hours at a time without issue.
Putting the headset on can be a bit of a struggle due to the extremely pliable ear cups, and it still takes up a lot of room during travel (especially if you’re going to take all the wires with you). Overall, though, the G933 feels pleasant, and that’s one of the most important features a headset can offer.
I tried the G933 with Battlefield 4 and Rainbow 6 Siege Online in order to test its Cinematic Gaming settings dts. On both games I turned the in game volume down so that I could hear my comrades call outs, I haven`t really figured it out yet how to get a combined mix of the two. In both games, I could hear the gunshots and footsteps of my enemies above the minimal voice work and music. You will need an Adapter to connect to your Xbox One controller.
The biggest feature of the G933 is its ability to connect wirelessly to a computer. This functionality delivers sound that’s just as good as its wired mode, and boasts a considerable range, to boot. I wandered about 30 feet away from my desk, past a wall and through a great deal of wireless traffic before the signal even weakened, and a few more feet before it gave out. If you have a living room PC setup, the G933 is more than up to the task of providing sound for it.
Music sounds great on the G933, whether you’re listening wirelessly, via USB or through an audio cable. I listened to various pop music and each tune sounded crisp and balanced.
The Logitech G933 takes an exceptional headset in the G633 and makes it wireless; it’s exactly the same in every other respect. For a few additional £`s or Euros, is a reasonable amount to ask for flawless wireless capabilities on a headset that is already extremely comfortable and provides phenomenal sound. Overall, the G933 is one of the very best wireless models on the market today….well that’s my point of view.

- Very comfortable
- Works on PCs, mobiles and consoles
- Too bulky for easy transport

The Logitech G933 delivers phenomenal sound, a robust set of extra features and a number of ways to connect to your favourite devices.I would strongly recommend this product to anyone
The Logitech G933 Artemis Spectrum is one of the finest wireless headsets on the market, offering flawless reception, high-quality sound, pretty backlighting and plenty of ways to connect it to your favorite devices. For fans with a living room PC setup, this headset is well worth a look.
