New: Logitech G35 Surround Sound Headset

For gamers looking to be totally immersed in their game, the Logitech G35 headset offers 7.1 surround sound – a perfect complement to the growing number of action games and high-definition movies that support 7.1-channel surround sound. The headset is powered by second-generation Dolby® Headphone technology. Plus, with its ear-enclosing design, the G35 headset greatly reduces ambient noise from interfering with your entertainment, while an adjustable, noise-canceling microphone focuses on your voice and reduces background noise. In other words, your games will sound awesome and you’ll hear every explosion but you can still hear the phone ring in case you want to pause you game to take a call.

If you use popular chat clients such as Ventrilo or Team Speak, the G35 headset includes three keys on the left earpiece for one-touch command over voice morphing. Additional on-ear audio controls provide quick access to volume, microphone mute and surround sound adjustments. And to ensure your headset remains comfortable during long gaming sessions, the G35 headset features three swappable headbands so you can select the style that fits your head best. We want to make sure you are comfortable for those long gaming marathons. :)

  • So, is there any updates to report concerning a release date? I’ve got mine on pre-order from Amazon.

  • All, thank you VERY much for your patience. I can now confirm that the G35 is available in the U.S. on logitech.com.

    Cheers, Ruben

  • yes it is on logitech.com..interesting it is listed at $99.99. Do you have any info on when it will hit in-store retailers like best buy in the US?

    Thanx.

  • Ruben, thanks! Got my on order. Went hog wild and took 2day shipping. Woo Hooo! Can’t wait, that will be 2 days with very little sleep .

  • Thanks for letting us know, I have literally been checking the Logitech site a few times a day since you let us know it would be late last week. The e*Bay pre-orderupdate is telling people Logitech pushed back release until late May – I was planning to go pick something else up tonight and give up on the G35, despite my high hopes for it. Just in the nick of time to save my sale.

    I will pretty much choose Logitech over any other company when it comes to PC peripherals, they are well-made, have thoughtful functions and everything always works as advertised. No, I don’t work for the company, I’m just a fussy shopper who’s happy you guys saved my sale at, literally, the final hour.

    Now, any dirt on what the hold-up was? Squeuzing in some last-minute improvements?

  • I’m going to have to guess quality-control and mass production of this rather unique headset. So glad it’s out and ordered it ASAP. For those asking about when it’ll be in Best Buy, Ruben posted a comment a page back.

  • So just to be clear:

    Logitech now allows us to buy the G35. Does that mean its a pre-order or will it be shipped when purchased? Has anyone who bought one through Logitech gotten their headsets yet?

  • Ordered mine on 13th, as of tonight current status is:

    Order Date: 04/13/09 15:55:42
    Order Status: Order in Process

    Anyone showing shipped yet?

  • Any idea on when it’ll be on the logitech.com site for Canada? Or available from amazon.com, as they offer shipping to Canada

    • Hi Nate,

      It should be available online in Canada in the second half of May.

      Cheers, Ruben

  • To SCE_Sobek:

    I ordered mine early on the 13th and so far no order status update. It still says “Order in Process.” My credit card also shows a charge for the headset that is pending. I haven’t gotten any shipment notifications so as far as I know I just placed a pre-order although that was never stated anywhere during the ordering process.

    To Logitech: Is there any reason why you aren’t shipping the units yet? I didn’t pay extra for shipping to have my order just sit there processing; I expect some form of expediting on the processing portion of the transaction as well.

  • I ordered mine on Monday as well, with 2 day delivery. Still showing:

    Order Date: 04/13/09 16:51:56
    Order Status: Order in Process

    When I placed the order, it said it would ship the next business day. Making me wonder if they really have them in hand yet. Guess I just have to wait it out now….

  • Yep, ordered mine on the 13th as well and still says order in process… Read the email, it says it’ll ship next day if in stock.. But if you read under “shipping and rates” on the site itself it says it may take up to 3 days to ship items… Which leads me to believe it’s not in stock? Or Logitech is playing a cruel joke by publishing it as released and getting us to pay for it and wait? Though can’t complain too much since even with next day air or two day air, can’t beat the price.

  • I order mine on the 14th as well, and I have yet to see an order update/anything other than “order in process”

    If this thing doesn’t ship by tomorrow I expect my expedited shipping charge to given back to me. I am starting to get disappointed in logitech. If anything, just shoot me an email explaining the truth why they haven’t shipped. That’s all I really want, is an honest company.

    • Hi Jacob (and all of those who have ordered the G35),

      I’m looking into what’s going on with shipping and will get back to you today.

      Cheers, Ruben

  • thank you Ruben,

    I think the hardest part about this is the fact that it is such a cool product, and we are eager to receive and play with it.

  • As an update to everyone:

    My G35 is currently “Out for delivery” via UPS. It appears that the issue with shipping was actually that Logitech doesn’t update its website often, so it didn’t show a status update until today. I ordered mine Monday night, and according to UPS tracking, it shipped out Tuesday afternoon with an expected delivery of today. So have some patience everyone!

    Thanks for keeping us updated Ruben. To avoid angry customers, I would suggest that logitech update the status more often, as I didn’t get confirmation of shipping until about 18 hours after it occurred.

  • I ordered mine early afternoon as soon as it was available and still hasn’t changed the status from “Order Status: Order in Process”. Expedited shipping soon.

  • Well, gave them a call, since I ordered it Monday afternoon. With 2 day shipping selected, it should be here by next Monday latest. Apparently, they have until Friday to ship out the G35 for those of us that have a status of “Order in Process”. Not sure when the cut off time for their shipping department was on Monday, but I seem to have missed it, and I ordered my G35 at around 3pm EST. So, keep checking until Friday to see if your status has changed!

  • Just thought I’d add my situation to the pile. Order on April 13 in the afternoon and my status as of writing this also says “Order in Process.”

    Hopefully this is a “slow updating Logitech” page and it actually went out already.

  • I ordered mine @ 4pm on Monday and Logitech just sent me an email saying it had been shipped. The tracking had already been updated, so I think this just verifies the “slow updating.”

  • Hello all — got an update from our distribution center. Please know that a lot of effort has gone into tracking the status of these orders today and we are committed to shipping these as quickly as possible. As a matter of fact, unless the UPS driver’s truck is hit by a tornado, all of your orders should leave the distribution center today (and in some cases, earlier)!!!

    Again, thank you for your patience.

    Cheers, Ruben

  • When will the G35 be available in the Netherlands?
    Because I wanted to buy it from amazone.com, but they don’t ship the G35 to the Netherlands.

  • My order shipped last night :). My “mission objective” was to get it before the weekend. It is scheduled to be here on Friday, so mission success.

    Thanks Ruben, and to the shipping department :)

    Now, the big question is, do I want to take Friday afternoon off and sit in the driveway waiting for it

  • Any idea when this will be available from other distributors, i.e. Amazon? Just trying to decide if I want to cancel my order with them and reorder here.

    Thanks for keeping us posted Ruben, it’s very much appreciated!

  • Look at the other page of comments guys.
    Ruben said last week
    ————————————————
    Update re: availability in the U.S.:
    Logitech.com: Late next week
    Amazon.com: Week of April 13
    Best Buy: Second half of May

    Update re: availability in Canada:
    Online in the second half of May

    Cheers, Ruben

  • Well, it most likely would have been accurate but lets just assume the people dealing with the website backend we’re not available at the time. They even had the price of the headset below the MSRP. For all we know, Amazon could have the headset available tomorrow.

  • Ordered on Tuesday April 13th with Next Day Afternoon shipping and they JUST ARRIVED. Literally minutes ago. Unboxed and enjoying them as I type. I love these headphones and am considering destroying my 5.1 setup for my computer.

    Woot for Logitech!

    Wonder if I’m the first to get mine.

  • Hello there,

    Also I’m wondering when it will be available in The Netherlands. Will it be half of may or is it possible you can get it sooner from internet shops?

    Kind regards,

    Benjamin.

  • hi nizama,

    can u plz tellme how much u paid for that.

    hows the headset, I hope it wud be AWESOME.

  • they are priced at $129.99…the $99.99 price glitch might just have been error from logitech using a template for the update or something from like the g9 mouse.

    Hope to see some real world reviews soon,,.maybe even some youtube vids =)

  • Just to follow up my previous post. I order on Monday, second day delivery. Shortly after my earlier post (above Wednesday, April 15th, 2009 at 3:28 pm), it was shipped, and UPS tracking says it’s out for delivery at this moment (i.e., to my house).

    Confirms Ruben’s comment above about them all getting out on Wednesday.

  • 4 calls to UPS, bit of waiting outside and some luck….headset is here! Boy was it worth the wait. It is VERY comfortable and covers my ears nicely. Only thing I’ve not had a chance to fix was the Ventrilo push-to-talk command. Configuration shows Ventrilo 3.0.5 but the latest I can find and have is 3.0.4. No big deal though.

  • Well, I got mine, and I am rather disappointed. The overall quality is great! and the Dolby works amazingly well. However, in the game that I wanted them for, the Dolby feature has a major problem. Note that other games may not have the same issue, this is what I play and wanted the headphones for.

    In the game I am playing, City of Heroes, there are oscillating sounds which denote the location of key objects. These sounds, which are in many cases the only way to find the object, are reduced by the Dolby to a point that when I stand next to the object, it can barely be heard. I have spent several hours verify this and testing possible “adjustments”

    The Dolby features seam to work great other than this on instance. However, this is a situation that will not allow me to use Dolby in the the game 90% of the time. Which defeats having G35s. If I disable the surround sound, I hear them clearly from several rooms away. I switch Dolby on at that same location, the sound is gone.

    I have tried various audio combination, but the only way I can get the key sound when not standing 10 feet from it is to disable the Dolby :(.

    I have a ticket open with Technical Support, so I will post back when I find out what they have to say.

    • Hi gamer,

      Thanks for reporting the CoH issue – and I’m sorry to hear of your initial disappointment. Our software-development team is checking out the issue. We’ll get back to you — so you can once more hear your glowies in all their pulsating glory :-)

      Cheers, Ruben

  • 4/18/09 and still no date for availability through US Amazon as was promised

    Sigh

    Maby they are too popular and they can’t stock them at retailers yet?

    • Hi CJ,

      We shipped the units to Amazon on Thursday so look for them any day now.

      Cheers, Ruben

  • It is april 19th and the only store that is selling this headset is the logitech us site…..i’m in canada why can’t i order it off the american site? its what like 10 bucks extra to ship to canada? I’m sick of these delays, amazon has yet to release this…. How can I buy this headset….

  • Hi Ruben,

    Good to see some personal attention from Logitech. Much better than an anonimous vague anouncement on a website. I think that’s why you’ve been asked so many questions about the availablity of the G35 for different parts of the world.
    I myself feel the need to express my digrundlement about the poor communciation on this matter. I’ve already ordered the G35 two times (at different stores) in the Netherlands past few weeks. And both times the expected delivery date moved by more than 4 weeks(!) the day after I should have recieved the order. And off course the shop keepers all point their finger at Logitech…
    So please keep this in mind for feature product releases. Give us accurate release dates please.

  • Hear, Hear,

    Hi Ruben.

    I have the same experience as Ray. And i concur.
    Nothing more frustrating than moving delivery dates. And there is only one party to blame …

    Is there already a reliable release date available for the Netherlands.
    (instead of second part of may, first part of june)

    Best regards,

    René

  • Hi Ruben,

    Would Just Like An Update On The Release In Australia, When Should They Be Expected On Shelves?

    Cheers.

  • Hey mate, it’s 22nd of april and g35’s aren’t in australia yet…. My current headset is almost dead, i play call of duty 4/5 competively and NEED the headset asap. When are they arriving in stores to Australia?!

  • Hi Ruben,
    The same bad experience is appened to me with a US seller on eBay (although i’m in Italy) that gave the official Logitech release date on 04/12 and 2 days before he moved the date to 05/21 :S…
    39 days are so much and now i’m waiting this headset with so frustration

  • Ruben,

    Thanks…looking forward to hearing back. I have a high level of confidence in Logitech :) [ I have G15, G9, G5, and MX518,2 Revolutions, 2 USB headsets from Logitech and a Harmony Remote] and I don’t give up easy. I play on running more “tests” this weekend to see what I can do from my end.
