Design

The Logitech C925e is the bigger webcam but the difference in size is negligible.

A look at both the Logitech C922 (left) and the Logitech C925e (right).

Looking at both the C922 and the C925e, you will notice that the C925e is wider. The C922 measures 1.14″ x 3.74″ x 0.94″ while the C925e is 1.2″ x 5.0″ x 1.3″. As you can see, the C925e is a little over an inch wider and a bigger camera overall, although not by much. The Logitech C922 weighs 5.71 oz while the C925e weighs 6.0 oz.

One feature that the C925e has that the C922 lacks is its sliding shade. It’s a nice added feature that all webcams should have.

Both webcams come with an adjustable clip for mounting on top of your monitor or your laptop. You can also mount them on a tripod if you want. On that note, the C922 comes with a table-top tripod while the C925e does not.

Video

The Logitech C922 is capable of 60fps at 720p.

Side view for both the Logitech C922 (left) and the C925e (right).

Video quality is great for both webcams. They are both capable of handling 1080p at 30 frames per second. However, the C922 has the advantage when it comes to 720p as it can deliver 60 frames per second while the C925e is stuck at 30. During video calls, 1080p at 30fps is usually more than enough, however, if you are planning on streaming, you will want that 60fps as it is smoother and will deliver a better experience for your viewers.

In low-light settings, both cameras are good but the C925e is better due to its RightLight 2 upgrade. It can deliver brighter and sharper images. RightLight 2 adjusts the quality of the image or video based on the lighting of your room.

Another advantage of the C925e over the C922 is its built-in encoder. It supports H.264 with Scalable Video Coding and UVC 1.1 encoding. Both webcams have a 78° field of view.

Sound

Both webcams are capable of decent sound.

The Logitech C925e is great for video calls and everyday webcam use.

When it comes to sound quality, both webcams are decent enough. The Logitech C922 has stereo mics while the C925e has 2 omnidirectional mics. Both webcams produce clear sound that will do just fine when it comes to video calls. If, however, you need to have the best sound quality, it might be better to invest in a dedicated mic such as this TONOR mic.

Software and Compatibility

The Logitech C922 has a background removal feature that can help streamers on a budget.

If you are a streamer, the C922 is a great choice.

Both webcams are compatible with Windows 7 and up. The C922 works with MacOS 10.10 or later while the C925e supports MacOS 10.7 and above.

Both webcams will work with video apps such as Skype, Microsoft Teams, FaceTime, etc.

The biggest difference between the two when it comes to software compatibility is the C922’s ability to work with ChromaCam, a background removal software. This is great for streaming on a budget. It creates a green screen effect so that you can remove or replace your background. The C922 also works with OBS and XSplit and it comes with a 3-month premium XSplit subscription.

Verdict

If you are a streamer, go for the Logitech C922. The Logitech C925e is better suited for office use.

Both webcams are similarly priced but they are geared for different types of users. If you are more into streaming, you should definitely get the Logitech C922 over the C925e. Being able to stream at 60fps is something that you should take advantage of. The background removal feature is also nice to have if you don’t have the space or the budget for a real green screen.

The Logitech C925e is good for business calls or video conferences. It delivers very good image quality even on low-light settings and its omni directional mics are good enough so that you are heard loud and clear.
