Keyboard and mouse maker Logitech, whose Logitech G brand has made gaming headsets for the past couple of years, launched its first set of wireless gaming earbuds last week.

Logitech G Fits True Wireless Gaming Earbuds are not only the first buds to use Lightspeed technology for strong, low-latency connectivity, they add Lightform technology for a custom fit that isolates sound and cancels external noise, the company said.

Logitech G Fits True Wireless Gaming Earbuds

That combination of technologies is what makes G Fits wireless gaming earbuds well-suited to gaming, according to Logitech G.

It pairs a Lightform molded fit with Lightspeed wireless technology, which allows high performance, low-latency connectivity for gamers on Macs, PCs, gaming consoles and mobile devices.

“This is the industry’s first custom-fit earbud for gaming,” said Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of Logitech Gaming. “Simply press a button, and our Lightform technology will give you a bud that molds perfectly in your ear.”

“We combine this with our Lightspeed wireless dongle to give you a wireless earbud with true gaming-grade performance,” he added.

Your average wireless earbuds, even nice ones, might not perform that well for gaming. They might not keep up with the speed of gameplay.

Lightform molded fit

The company said its patented Lightform technology gives a custom, molded fit to each user in 60 seconds.

You can use the dedicated mobile app to start up LEDs in the earbuds. They firm up gel-filled tips against the contours of your ear. That creates a unique, comfortable, secure fit that helps block noise and isolate sound, Logitech said.

That enhanced passive noise cancellation — which the company called “best in class” — is one reason the buds lack active noise cancellation (ANC).

Given that the company said the earbuds have a “full, warm and detailed sound with deep punchy bass,” that custom fit probably also makes them great for music and other uses, too.

The buds, featuring 10mm drivers, gain audio chops from Logitech’s Ultimate Ears products.

“Thanks to the sound experts at Ultimate Ears, they deliver full, warm, detailed sound with deep punchy bass,” Logitech said. “With the Fits app, you can access EQs that are optimized for FPS or RPG games, music, podcasts, UE Signature Sound, Bass Boosts and more. Or you can finely turn your own EQ settings.”

In addition to an EQ, each bud features two beam-forming mics to help keep voice communications clear.

Lightspeed connectivity

Logitech’s Lightspeed technology, which it also uses in products like gaming mice, keyboards and headsets, boosts audio response, enables strong connectivity and lengthens battery life in the new earbuds, according to the company.

With Lightspeed on, battery life is 7 hours of playback, plus 8 more hours with charging case. On Bluetooth, playback is 10 hours plus 12 more with the charging case.

Players can connect via USB-A or USB-C not only to Macs and PCs, but also to PlayStations 4 and 5, Nintendo Switch (docked) and Android devices (via dongle).

The new earbuds, which come in black and white finishes, go for $229.99 at Logitech G or Amazon.
