Logitech's latest gaming headsets get a boost from better software

They also tout improved audio and, of course, RGB lighting.

Software upgrades are sometimes more important than hardware, and that might just be true of Logitech's latest audio gear. The company has unveiled four G-series gaming headsets (the G935, G635, G432 and G332) whose common thread is G Hub, a new software front-end for customizing device profiles on a per-game basis. While Logitech isn't diving into details, it vows a "clean and modern interface" -- the earlier software was a bit confusing, so this could improve the experience across the board.

The headsets themselves have improvements, of course. The $170 G935 and $140 G635 are the first to use a new Pro-G 50mm driver that Logitech claims will combine serious bass with a "round sound profile." They're also the flashiest of the bunch with RGB lighting and 7.1-channel DTS Headphone: X 2.0 surround sound. The only major difference is connectivity: the G935 is a wireless model with 12 hours of listening, while the G635 sticks to wires.

The $80 G432 and $60 G332 (both wired) eschew most of those luxuries, but you will get 50mm drivers. The choice largely comes down to your preferences for immersion. The G432 offers 7.1-channel audio, while the G332 is for those content with stereo.

All four headsets will be available before February is over.
