So far I really enjoy my new G930's. Although I've come across a few issues with them I think could be corrected.
- While in "Surround Mode" all sounds have a slight echo/reverb to them, like a cheesy "Vienna Hall" setting on a home surround receiver. This really bothers me, and alters the way things "should" sound in 7.1, is there anyway to remove this while keeping the 7.1 separation in tact? I don't see an option in the Control Panel for this. I understand the surround mode is virtual and not actually 7 individual speaker drivers, but it would be great to eliminate this small effect on the sound.
- I use Mumble as my preferred voice communication, while in "Stereo Mode" ALL AUDIO from Mumble only comes out of the right channel, including program sounds like WAV dings and notifications.
- Will we eventually be able to bind custom keys to the G-Keys? I would love to bind just a keyboard key from my G-19. Or even perhaps a direct Push-To-Talk in Mumble, but cloning an existing key would be the easiest approach for any non-supported program.
Thanks for the great product.

I have the same issue, but in Teamspeak. Sound from teamspeak in right ear only when in stereo mode. And 7.1 has a really bad echo/reverb sound that I cannot stand. I hear Skype only plays in one ear as well. I really hope that they fix this because I do like this headset but can use it until this is corrected. I still have yet to see Logitech confirm that this is a known issue that they are working on. Funny, Ventrillo works fine but I don't like to use that program.
Please HELP Logitech, I have not given up on you guys!!

It seems like it's all software based and just a matter of time before the stuff is resolved.
The hardware seems to function well, and I am really pleased with the overall sound quality and the absence of that horrible thing known as "The Wire"
let's hope for a good driver update soon!

I have the exact same issues with my G35 and I have been in contact with customer support about the reverb/echo. This is apparently an unconfirmed issue with these headsets.
So, unless you guys already have, you should contact customer support about it. Just posting on the forum won't guarantee that they are going to notice it.

"if already in surround sound mode, the headset needs to recognize that there is now a surround sound output and stop trying to virtualize all the channels"
I think you misunderstand how the 7.1 works with these headphones. ALL surround sound is virtualized, even if the source is 5.1/7.1.
The problem is that the way Logitech is doing it causes a mild, yet spectacularly annoying, reverb. It's not so bad in games, but movies are horrible. They all sound like the actors are in a tin can. I thought I would get used to it, but it just gets more and more obnoxious. I've given up and just use 2 channel mode, which defeats the purpose of getting these headphones in the first place.
