Review: Logitech G333

Logitech impressed with nice and clear sound when I reviewed their G733 over ear headphones a few weeks ago. On the other hand, they did not win any design awards with that color scheme. Today’s test is of a pair of threaded in-ear headphones that have been given the model name G333 and these are immediately nicer than big brother.

When I pick the headphones out of the box, I really feel how unexpectedly heavy and solid they are. No plastic here not. When I put them in my ears, they close properly and the fit is really comfortable. Despite the stability of the construction, the weight of the G333 is not felt when you have them in your ears. The package also includes extra rubber plugs, a USB-C adapter and a flexible, small bag.

I get started, connect them to my phone and play some test music. First out will be AviciiHeart Upon my Sleeve, the instrumental version. When the base kicks in, a smile spreads on my lips. These headphones have a really good base for being in-ear; or the phase – really no matter what kind of trick you compare with! It’s heavy, deep bass that sounds absolutely fantastic. I continue my test with the standard song The Other Side from The Greatest Showman and the reason I have snowed in on that particular song (apart from the fact that it is awesome) is because it is a very complex song and if it is a couple worse headphones so everything is smeared together and nothing gets clean. This will not be the case in the G333, but here all the details are heard with clarity, weight and timbre.

The next test will be to use them as hands-free and in today’s world, where all meetings are either by phone or on Zoom / Teams, I want at least a headset that is comfortable but above all that I hear the person I am talking to with clearly and that that person hears me. I tested them on purpose in a rather noisy environment and thanks to the fit, it was no problem at all to still hear the person I talked to perfectly. He heard me well too, but the standard problem when you have a cord is that there will be some scratching and noise if the mic gets to the clothes. Something that bothered me a little is the three buttons on the cord itself. The middle button is the activity button and the other two are turn up and down the volume. When you just feel a little fast, you can accidentally take the wrong button. Maybe not the whole world, but it’s a little annoying to try the right button when it rings or even worse – accidentally turn off when you want to raise or lower the volume.

I have started playing some VR games on Playstation 4 Pro and when you wear the PSVR helmet you can not have large, over-ear headphones. There, the G333 from Logitech quickly became my absolute favorite headphones for the VR kit! You really become completely immersed in the VR world as the G333 sits tight and the nice sound enhances the experience. It may be that the G333 is developed in harmony with the Oculus VR kit, but they do just as well with other brands such as Playstation VR. A pair of good in-ear headphones are really A and O for the VR experience and here the G333 is perfect. They are also convenient to have with your Nintendo Switch on the go or why not watch a movie on the toad? There are lots of uses for these flexible and well-made lures.

So in summary, I was really impressed with the G333 from Logitech; they sound fantastic, are very well priced and therefore sniff at top marks!
