PRODUCT COMPOSITION & WALKTHROUGH
For the MSRP of US$29.99, you will get the following.
Once the package is opened, you will see that there isn't a whole lot to the product other than the headset and the user's manual. Let's take a little closer look at the headset features.
The first thing I took a look at was the small and handy volume which contains a microphone mute control built into the side which can be toggled on or off through a simple slide switch. If you like to attach the remote to your shirt or belt, it has a slide clasp on the back so your remote is always handy and not snagging things by loosely hanging.
Hookup is very easy and you connect the black connection to your speaker or headphone out and the pink connection to your microphone port. Completely foolproof.
The headset itself although different, is rather attractive. But as everyone knows, headphones have never been a fashion statement. I would rather have a crappy looking set of awesome headphone rather than the opposite. Unlike most standard headphones, the Logitech Precision PC Gaming Headset is meant to be worn so the band is behind your head and not over top. The headset is remarkably light which can be attributed to the open concept design.
To keep your ears from getting hot and sweating during extended gaming intervals, the open concept allows for air circulation you would not have when using a set of studio headphones. The microphone boom is not fixed in one place and can be adjusted 360 degrees around its' center rotation point. This is nice when you only want to use the headphones and don't want a microphone distracting you.
