Pros: Good sound, 7.1 surround sound, good noise isolation, handy controls on side of headset
Cons: Poor build quality/design, quite heavy to wear
7.1 Surround Sound
One of the key selling point for this headset is obviously the 7.1 surround and i can say its not bad. It comes into its own in gaming where you can fully immerse yourself and in games like Battlefield you all of a sudden get a whole new appreciation for the games audio. For things like music and voice chat though it makes it sound bad so I recommend turning it off and luckily there is a simple button to do this
The G35 is a bulky unit which means you get very good noise isolation with them. This works well with the 7.1 to mean almost no outside noises get in and means music and gamin is made better.
If you look at most of Logitech's gaming range they feature a multitude of programmable buttons. This headset follows that trend with 3 on the side and also a volume dial, mic mute and 7.1 switch. This are nice if you keyboard doesn't have any or you just want to set up some unique commands. I feel though that these buttons are most useful on the wireless version of this headset (G930) as you can use it for push to talk buttons or track scrolling if your AFK but still nice to have
Poor Build Quality
This is where the headset falls apart literally. Overall the build quality inst bad with a matt black and red finish though the black is prone to finger smudges. The main problem with this headset is the connection to the ear cups from the headband. Its a very small thin piece of plastic that rotates and holds alot of the stress when you are wearing them. For people like me with large heads that means they easily snap at this part. You can RMA them but after doing it once with mine the next time it happened the headset was out of warranty so goodbye headset.
If you are someone that wants to use these for a long period f time well they might not be the best choice. Although they are comfortable they are heavy and can be hard to wear for long period especially if you have come from wearing light headsets. After a while you get use to it though.
Overall this could be a great headset with good sound and features but due to the fact that they will likely break after a year or so they fall short. Logitech has re launched their gaming headset range and hopefully fixed this so maybe look into the new version of this headset. If you are looking for a headset of this type though I would actually recommend the in investment into the wireless version the G930. They have all the same features but the wireless is so nice and they don't suffer the design flaw nearly as bad as the G35's.
