Logitech’s offshoot Logitech G has been making high-quality gaming peripherals for years now, among which are the headsets Pro and Pro X. These are touted as having been designed for pros, as their moniker suggests. And it’s not a load of hot air either.
To no one’s surprise, the cans perform well in gaming. On top of that, they have decent sound quality for listening to music. The question is, what’s the difference? We compare the two to help you make a more informed purchase decision.
Logitech Pro vs Pro X Comparison Chart
Both share a ton of similarities across the board, but the Pro X has a little something extra to offer.
At first glance, you’d likely be hard-pressed to spot what makes them distinct from each other. In other words, they look pretty much the same from any perspective.
The difference is in the features department: the Pro X has Blue VO!CE technology. Thanks to that, you can adjust things like noise and compression and access options such as a de-esser. Put differently, it’s Logitech G’s attempt to bring studio-quality vocals for in-game communication to its gaming headsets.
That’s mainly what sets the headphones apart, but there’s more to it than that. Only the Pro X comes with a mobile cable, a pair of memory foam cloth earpads, and a carrying pouch. It’s also the only one of the two that supports DTS Headphone:X v2.0 surround sound.
You’ll get more or less the same listening experience on either headphone.
For headsets marketed for gaming, both deliver surprisingly decent sound. Bass is solid, but it isn’t too overpowering. Highs are pretty accurate to boot.
However, other sounds are somewhat muddied. You’d be able to tell without trying that certain sounds such as strings aren’t pronounced that well, especially if you compare it with what you’ll get from balanced headphones.
In their defense, they’re designed for gaming, and where they really shine is, well, in games.
Even though only the Pro X supports DTS Headphone:X v2.0, the Pro can do virtual surround sound well.
Their bass is different from the usual gaming headsets that boost it way too much, which is a huge plus. That means it’s not overwhelming to the point that you won’t hear the other details in a game.
Thing is, their G HUB Software is only for PC, and because of that, some features won’t be available to console players, including surround sound.
Speaking of, positional audio on the Pro and Pro X is decent as well. As mentioned earlier, the former uses DTS Headphone:X v2.0. Meanwhile, the latter can use Windows Sonic or Dolby Atmos for Headphones.
As for their microphones, they can reproduce higher voices better than lower ones on their default settings, but the Blue VO!CE app can iron out the kinks. The Pro doesn’t have that luxury, however. That doesn’t necessarily mean it’s bad. In fact, it can pick up voices with clarity minus unwanted noises, still making it suitable for streaming.
Design and Comfort
Both weigh only 0.7 lbs.
The Pro and Pro X have excellent build quality. Their headband is made from steel, so durability isn’t an issue. They also stray from the typical, flashy gamer aesthetic, so if you want sleek gaming cans, they fit the bill.
Likewise, there’s nothing to complain about comfort. The headsets have memory foam leatherette earpads, and they’re also lightweight enough that you can game for hours on end.
Both come with an external sound card as well. As for inputs, they can be connected via a 3.5 mm cable or USB with the DAC.
The Pro X can simply do more than the Pro.
To sum up, both are comfortable headphones that you can game with for long periods. After all, they provide remarkable performance in gaming. They also deliver A-OK results for listening to music, even though they can’t really hold a candle to hi-fi cans.
Now the Logitech Pro is, by all means, decent, but if voice chat is important to you, the Pro X is the better pick. The Blue VO!CE app can go a long way in making your voice come through as clear as possible. That’s because it gives you the option to make adjustments on a granular level. You also get more stuff out of the box.
The main difference is that only the Pro X has a Blue VO!CE microphone.
The Pro X is better than the Pro because it has a Blue VO!CE microphone and DTS Headphone:X v2.0 support.
Yes. For its price, the Pro is worth getting because of its build and sound quality.
Yes, the Pro X has all the features of the Pro and takes things up a notch with Blue VO!CE technology and DTS Headphone:X v2.0.
