Logitech has announced a pair of fancy gaming headsets this morning: the G633 Artemis Spectrum, and the G933 Artemis Spectrum Wireless. The Artemis Spectrum cans are supposedly the first headsets to support Dolby's DTS Headphone:X virtual surround sound technology. The company says the Artemis Spectrum family's drivers are "made with hybrid mesh materials that provide the audiophile-like performance gaming fans demand." Without putting a pair on, we'll have to take Logitech's word for it.
The Artemis Spectrum headsets do have some interesting extras—both the G933 and the G633 can handle input from multiple sources. Both models have a USB audio connection to the PC, as well as analog inputs for other devices, such as cell phones. For example, Logitech says gamers could hook up their phones to these headsets and order a pizza without interrupting their game time. The G633 has one such analog in, while the G933 comes with a "USB mix adapter" that can handle and mix input from two external sources.
Because it's 2015, the Artemis Spectrum cans have customizable RGB LED accents. You can also choose from multiple translucent, swappable ear plates for a custom look. Both headsets also have several programmable buttons and built-in volume controls. The G933 also comes with an analog cable so you can listen to a single analog source without battery power.
The only distinction Logitech makes between these two headsets is their cord setup. The G633 Artemis Spectrum is permanently corded, and it'll carry a suggested price of $150 when it arrives next month. The G933 Artemis Spectrum Wireless ditches the cord—outside of the battery-free mode—and will set you back $200 when it hits store shelves in October.
