Logitech has announced that the Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Headset is available now through LogitechG.com and in the US, Canada, and select markets worldwide for a suggested retail price of $249 US and €269. Described as the ultimate esports headset and available in black or white options, the Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Headset is the first headset from Logitech that features drivers made of graphene, a revolutionary new material that is said to deliver enhanced audio response, reduced distortion, and unrivaled sound. Connectivity options include LIGHTSPEED wireless, Bluetooth, and wired, while 50 hours of use on a single charge has been promised.
“The core philosophy of the Logitech G PRO Series is about creating gear that meets the demanding needs of professional esports athletes and competitive gamers,” says Chris Pate, Principal Product Manager, Logitech G PRO Series. “With PRO X 2, we’ve achieved a groundbreaking level of performance by redesigning our PRO-G drivers with Graphene audio technology. With our use of graphene, we can create a driver that is both incredibly rigid and, at the same time, almost impossibly lightweight. This delivers high fidelity sound with extremely low distortion, giving pros the performance they need to play to their maximum potential.”
“I have always felt Logitech G values my feedback and opinion for product development, that’s why their gear is the highest performing and most popular among top esports athletes. During the development of the G PRO X 2 Gaming headset, I enjoyed the improved comfort and excellent mic. In-game, I found the new Graphene driver a game changer, it really made me feel I got a new advantage to win against my competition,” said Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyljev, Counter-Strike, Natus Vincere.

From a Logitech press release:
In esports, clarity of sound and communications are critical factors that influence winning. Being able to hear the slightest audio cue and communicate with teammates makes all the difference. The new PRO-G GRAPHENE Audio Driver has been precision engineered with a 50 mm graphene diaphragm featuring a live edge suspension, to deliver immersive soundscapes like never before. The new driver delivers improvements in sound reproduction accuracy, time to signal accuracy and distortion reduction, allowing players to identify audio objects more clearly, and more quickly discern their location as objects move relative to the player.
Logitech G PRO Series line is developed under a unique Design by Collaboration program, which brings together many of the world’s top esports athletes and teams to develop new high-performance esports gear that pushes the boundaries of innovation and performance to give them the competitive edge.
