Product Snapshot

Overview

The Logitech G535 headphones are an entry-level pick first released in early 2022. The wireless headphones miss out on Bluetooth connectivity and Active Noise Canceling, but they do feature a boom microphone, and their sound can be customized through the Logitech G HUB app. The headphones also have an inbuilt battery that lasts up to 33 hours per the manufacturer, and they need only 1.4 hours to get to a full charge. The headphones work with PCs and PlayStation consoles but unfortunately, not with Xbox consoles.

Check out our list of the best gaming headsets for alternatives that do. The headphones have 40mm drivers, can be used while charging, and they also feature microphone and volume controls on the sides of their ear cups.

Consensus

our Verdict

The Logitech G535 Lightspeed is a great gaming headset, providing a balance of high-quality audio, comfortable wear, and user-friendly features. While its microphone is adequate for casual use, it may pick up background noises, but its clear voice output compensates. The headset’s build quality is sturdy, offering a snug fit for various head sizes. The battery life is impressive, averaging 35.3 hours after a 1.4-hour charge, and its wireless connection is nearly lag-free, with a low 33ms latency.

Additionally, the user experience is enhanced by intuitive software and a minimalistic design, making it suitable for professional settings. Overall, the G535 Lightspeed is a solid choice for its price, but it might not satisfy those seeking advanced noise isolation features.

Reason to Buy

  • Good sound output
    • The G535 gaming headset’s sound output is neutral and well-balanced, with an under-emphasized bass range. However, this can also be further enhanced through the user-intuitive Logitech G Hub app.

  • Great comfort
    • Thanks to its ski-band design, weight is distributed evenly around the wearer’s head, enhancing comfort. The hinges can also be adjusted for larger heads, and the ear cup padding is good enough for owners wearing them over the long term.

Reason to Avoid

  • Poor noise isolation
    • The headset doesn’t block out low rumble noise.

  • OK Microphone quality
    • The G535’s microphone picks up sound well enough for the user to sound clear and audible, but there are better alternatives with a better-performing microphone, as this one only ranks in the bottom 50% of our certified, tested list in this category.

The Logitech G535 Lightspeed headphones are slightly more compact than the Logitech G733 headphones, but their sound leakage performance is much worse than that of the G733 headphones. Still, the boom mic on the G733 headphones is detachable while the one on the G535 headphones is not, and the G535 only takes 1.4 hours to get to a full charge while the G733 headphones take up to 4.4 hours. We’ve delved deeper into the G733 headphones in our Logitech G733 headphones review, so feel free to learn more if you’re interested.

The Logitech G535 headphones are slightly larger than the Razer Barracuda X Wireless 2021 headphones. The boom mic on the Razer headphones is also detachable, unlike the one on the G535 headphones, but the G535 headphones support passive playback while the Razer headphones do not. Lastly, the G535 headphones allow sound customization through the Logitech G Hub app, but the Razer headphones do not have a companion app.

The Logitech G535 headphones were released as the successors of the Logitech G435 headphones. The G535 headphones offer a longer 33-hour battery life, while the G435 headphones only allow for up to 18 hours of playtime. Another difference is that the G535 headphones take a shorter 1.4 hours to get to full charge, while the G435 headphones take up to 1.7 hours. However, the G535 misses out on Bluetooth connectivity, a feature that the G435 headphones have built-in. Check out what else the G435 headphones have in store by exploring our Logitech G435 lightspeed review.

While the Logitech G535 headphones depend on Windows Sonic Spatial Audio for their virtual surround sound, the Logitech G935 wireless headphones rely on DTS 7.1 surround sound technology. Also worth noting is that the Logitech G935 headphones have better sound leakage performance, and even though the two both rely on a USB dongle for wireless connectivity, the G935 wireless has a better line of site range of up to 108 ft compared to the G535’s 58 ft.
