Full Review (including microphone audio test) of the Logitech G430 7.1 Dolby Surround Sound Gaming Headset.
The Logitech G430 Surround Sound Gaming Headset is powered by Dolby Headphone technology to create an immersive 360-degree sound field that gives you the advantage of hearing what you can’t see in a game, from footsteps to explosions. You’ll hear up to 7 discreet channels of audio plus a low frequency effects channel. The G430 also provides washable ear cups that offer a soft comfortable fit for long gaming sessions. The G430 also features a fold-able, noise-cancelling microphone.

Rex Catipay says:

The g430, g230 and g231 are the same except for colour and the g430 comes with the usb dongle. g230 and g231 only difference are the colour and the g231 is marketed towards console gaming while the g230 is marketed towards pc. The usb dongle that comes with the g430 provides virtual 7.1 surround (easily possible with any soundcard provided you have the software like razer surround or in the new windows 10 creators update enable 7.1 surround sound).

Otherwise they use the same audio drivers (the speakers inside the headphone) and same mic, and again only difference is colour, price and marketing. Specs are exactly the same.

Really if you want a cheaper and more wise deal and if you don’t bother about colour, go for the g230 or the g231 as the g430 is only more expensive because of the 7.1 surround gimmick that it is marketed with. Sure its nice and I do have the headset, but it also distorts the sound quality compared to stereo mode, so I don’t really use 7.1 surround. All the g430 is a g230 bundled with a usb sound card and a blue colour scheme, with an increased price tag.

But it is good if you want an upgrade from on-board sound, but then again if you already have a dedicated sound card or you have  the newer Realtek alc1220 on-board sound, save your self some money and go for the cheaper g230 and g231 or better yet find another headset that might compete with it.

xMay says:

i just bought a pair and they sound like shit even the mic sounds bad 🙁

George Petkov says:

Stamps says:

BIG easy says:

Reddust86 says:

I just ordered this headset on amazon.. arriving in 2 days!

Stephen Williams says:

The plural for computer mouse is mouses, not mice. Just saying

DEZGAMING says:

Ear muffs are a little on the uncomfortable side for me because of the shape of the headset

TGKoala says:

the snowball has a more real sounding audio quality, with nice bass and treble balance, and the g430’s mic is surprisingly clear for a headset mic. the bass is a little weak, but no communication errors wouldn’t happen with that mic. I think I’ll buy one of those headsets. I need one because USPS lost my corsair void in the mail when I tried to get it replaced

JTundra says:

Went with hyper x cloud 2 instead

David Rosario says:

Does the sorround sound work for ps4?

Bubbalz says:

Justin Shafi says:

Kyvuh says:

Anyone know of this headset has the headband problem like the Razer Kraken 7.1 headset had where if you wore it for like a hour where you placed the Headband would hurt?
