Logitech G35 Surround Sound Headset Review

It has been a while since I have reviewed a headset.  I have been using the same one for quite some time and I was in need of an upgrade.  I decided on the Logitech G35 Surround Sound Headset that features Dolby 7.1 sound, user-defined profiles, 3 swappable headbands, on-ear audio controls and much more.  Let’s take a look and see if this headset was the right choice for my upgrade.  Special thanks to Geeks.com for providing us with the Logitech G35 Surround Sound Headset to review.  Geeks.com is a great place to find gaming accessories.

NOTE: These are refurbished headphones so they did not include the 3 headbands (only 1) and the software CD.  The software can be easily downloaded from Logitech’s website.
