As people get more and more used to using headphones while on the go, they start looking for earphones that they can use for everything. Why use a gaming headset when your everyday headset can do the same job? That’s precisely the type of person the Logitech G Fits wireless headphones are aimed at.

Sure, you can pair them with your phone, but they also include a dongle to easily use them with your PC with much lower latency. Do you want to play on your phone or tablet? They also feature a Bluetooth Low Latency Game Mode to make audio feel more in-line with the game.

However, that’s not the most unique feature of the Logitech G Fits. These headphones use a technology Logitech calls Lightform to tailor the headphones to your ears, giving you a personalized fit. Does this all add up to make the Logitech G a fit for its new headsets for everything, or should they have stuck to just one niche?

This is what we like

  • It sounds good for everything from music to games.
  • Lightspeed dongle is great for gaming
  • Lightform molding is new and seems to work well
  • decent battery life

And what we don’t do

  • No active noise cancellation
  • The case does not have wireless charging

build and design

Only Logitech G Fits Headphones

  • Dimensions: 88.9 x 57.9 x 24.3mm (3.5 x 2.28 x 0.96 inches)
  • Weight: 7.2 (0.25 oz) each

Open the box and you’ll notice that the earbuds aren’t tucked inside the box, as you’ll often see. Instead, they’re sealed inside another package to keep them fresh, which is a sentence I never thought I’d find myself writing.

The reason is that Lightform ear tips are sensitive to the surrounding atmosphere and you don’t want them to harden before they are molded to fit your ears. UV light can also cause them to harden, so be sure to keep them out of the sun before placing.

The earbuds themselves use a slimmer design, somewhat pill-shaped on the outside, as an alternative to the stems on the Apple AirPods Pro and similar earbuds. This gives the G Fit a unique appearance. The headphones are available in two color options: white, which comes with a white and purple case, and black, which comes with a black and yellow case.

In addition to earphones and tips, you also get a Lightspeed dongle for connecting to computers and game consoles, a USB-C adapter for the dongle, and a USB-C charging cable.

Configuration, fit and comfort

Looking at the manual, there’s a QR code you can scan to easily download the G Fits app, available for Android devices as well as iPhone and iPad. Launch the app and it will ask you to open the sealed package with the earbuds and pair them.

The matchmaking is a bit weird. To initially pair, you need to place the earbuds in the case, close the lid, open the lid, and then press the button inside the case. You then pair the earphones as you normally would on your phone before going back to the G Fits app.

Once the headphones are paired, you’re ready to create your custom fit. The app plays music during this process to help you find the right fit, as you’re supposed to adjust each earbud until the bass seems louder. Once you’ve found the right fit, you can begin the molding process.

Once the process starts, it takes about a minute. The app instructs you to hold the earbuds firmly in your ears and keep your jaw relaxed as the integrated LED lights activate and harden the gel on the tips. It’s a weird feeling when the headphones start to get hot in your ears, but it was never uncomfortable.

  • Bluetooth version: 5.2
  • Wireless networks: Lightning speed via USB-A receiver, Bluetooth reduced latency gaming mode

The Logitech G Fit are equipped with Bluetooth 5.2, but that’s not all. They also offer a reduced latency gaming mode, which trades a small amount of audio fidelity for less lag between your playback device and your ears.

Of course, if you want the lowest possible latency, it’s time to go for the Lightspeed dongle. This is compatible with Windows and macOS, PlayStation 4, Playstation 5, Android, and Nintendo Switch.

Logitech wisely assumes that most people will want to switch between devices, so a triple tap on either earbud is all it takes to switch between Bluetooth and Lightspeed mode. You can also easily toggle game mode in the G Fits app.

Music and sound quality.

Use Logitech G settings

When it comes to the overall sound signature, this kind of holistic approach can be tricky. These are largely in “jack of all trades” territory, which means that while there are other headphones out there that focus strictly on music, these claim to work just as well for music, movies, and gaming.

A good fit improves sound with headphones, and the fit certainly seems to help here. These aren’t as powerful as many other headphones, which can often be too loud for TV, movies, and gaming, but they still pack a punch. The 10mm driver also does a good job of delivering treble.

Listening to Mac Demarco’s “Salad Days” you get that crisp high end. Vocals and guitars are present in the high end, but not too much. The G Fits also deliver incredibly clear images, with instruments maintaining their space from each other in the stereo field.

As for The Beatles’ “Tomorrow Never Knows (2022 Mix),” the soundstage is still spacious, but the G Fits don’t deliver as much bass as other headphones. To combat this, I turned to the EQ in the G Fits app, but this did strange things on the high end. Fortunately, you can create your own presets for the five-band equalizer.

Gaming audio works fine. Playing shots rebornI first tried the standard EQ mode before trying the FPS preset. Although the curve looked quite dramatic in the app, I didn’t notice much of a difference, although both settings sounded good.

One last thing worth mentioning is that while these offer some passive noise isolation due to the fit, there’s no active noise cancellation (ANC) here.

Games and Voice

While you can use the Logitech G Hub app for Windows and macOS with G Fits, there’s not much reason to. You can adjust the microphone gain and headphone reference volume, but to adjust the equalizer or other settings, you’ll need to use the G Fits app on your phone.

If you’re using G Fits to play games on your PC or other compatible device, ditch Bluetooth and go with the Lightspeed dongle instead. Not only is latency reduced, but the audio quality also seems slightly better. It’s worth the slight tradeoff in battery life.

Using G Fits for voice, whether in games or in voice chat apps, works quite well. The microphone isn’t the best quality we’ve heard, but you can be sure that everyone will understand what you’re saying. As with general audio quality, there is a slight improvement in voice quality when using the Lightspeed dongle.

Finally, one useful feature worth mentioning is that when connected via Lightspeed, a quick double tap on either earcup mutes the microphone. This is useful for covering a sneeze or a conversation with a housemate.

battery and charging

  • Play time (Bluetooth): 10 hours of listening time + 12 hours with the charging case
  • Play time (speed of light): 6.5 hours of talk time + 7 hours with the charging case
  • Talk time (Bluetooth): 7 hours of listening time + 8 hours with the charging case
  • Talk time (speed of light): 4.5 hours of talk time + 5 hours with the charging case

Battery life depends on how you’re connected, with Lightspeed connections offering less battery life.

On a Bluetooth connection, you can get up to 10 hours of listening time or 6.5 hours of talk time on a single charge. The included charging case adds another 12 hours of playtime before you need to recharge.

When connected via Lightspeed, you get a maximum of seven hours of listening time or 4.5 hours of talk time, with the case adding another eight hours of listening time. Of course, you’ll typically switch between Bluetooth and Lightspeed connections, so your playback time will probably fall somewhere in between.

The charging case is simple, with a single USB-C connection on the back for charging. There’s no support for wirelessly charging the case, which is a minor inconvenience.

Should you buy the Logitech G Fits?

The Logitech G Fits try to do quite a bit, and they accomplish most of it quite admirably. That said, these types of headsets still have some niche appeal, at least for now, and whether they appeal to you will depend on how much you like the idea of ​​a gaming or movie headset.

The Lightform technology is interesting and certainly helps the G Fits stand out from other headphones, but how well it will work for different people remains to be seen. Lightspeed connectivity is useful for lag-free audio in games, but you won’t mind this if you’re not a gamer.

If you’re looking for a do-everything set of headphones that offers an alternative to a gaming headset, and you don’t need ANC, the Logitech G Fits are a solid choice. That said, if you’re looking for earphones with similar functionality at a lower price, the JBL Quantum TWS earbuds are a solid alternative.
