Logitech (http://www.logitech.com) unveiled three new G-Series gaming peripherals — the Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930, the Logitech Wireless Gaming Mouse G700 and the Logitech Gaming Keyboard G510.
The Wireless Gaming Headset G930 (US$159.99) immerses you in 7.1 Dolby surround sound, creating a detailed, positional soundfield that lets you hear your opponents before they see you, according to Elliott Chin, Logitech’s senior manager of product marketing for gaming. With gaming-grade wireless technology designed specifically for two-way, uncompressed audio streaming, you can focus on your game without being distracted by typical wireless lag or interference annoyances, he adds.
The G930 gaming headset comes fully equipped, with three programmable G-keys that put you in command over music, voice morphing and chat clients. A memory-foam-lined headband is designed to fend off fatigue, while ear pads ease pressure points and seal out unwanted noise. There’s also a noise-canceling microphone. And if you’re dedicated enough to drain the internal 10-hour battery in a single marathon session, the included charging base lets you easily recharge while you continue to use the headset.
Optimized for MMO, the Wireless Gaming Mouse G700 ($99.99) has 13 controls can be programmed to perform single actions or complex macros with a single click. It touts a full-speed wireless connection of 1000 reports per second. A quick-connect charging cable provides both power, even when the mouse is still in use, and data-over-cable capabilities for LAN-friendly connectivity.
The Gaming Keyboard G510 ($119.99) features 18 programmable G-keys with three mode states, giving you up to 54 possible macro settings per game. You can pre-define macros for your favorite games, or you can create new ones on the fly for easy customization.
The Logitech-exclusive GamePanel LCD gives you real-time game stats and computer performance data. Customizable RGB backlighting makes it easy to keep keyboard controls in plain sight. And it includes 3.5 mm audio jacks, so you can plug in an analog headset for clear digital communication over USB.
