For one of the most expensive PC gaming heasets avaiable the G930 is garbage. At least once an hour the heaset looses contact with the base and audio cuts out for about 10 seconds. When it returns, the sidetone is gone. I have to atl+tab out of my game and move the slider to get sidetone back. I'd expect this from a piece of **bleep** i got at a garage sale. Test your products before you sell them. Ya the base is about 1 foot from the headset. Nice.

These headphones are pretty much the biggest piece of garbage Logitech has produced.
I have had 3 sets of them now, and they all have the same connection issues. My first one I purchased, the second Logitech exchanged to rule out defect (which I ended up selling after I was having the same issues) got my third pair which I bought from a completely different vendor just to give it one last shot with the same failing results.
I think it was piss poor design on Logitechs part to create wireless headphones that work in the 2.4 GHz frequency range which is already SO saturated, especially if you live in a densely populated area.
Whos moronic idea was it to give the user no ability to change the frequency channel from 1 thru 11 like most other 2.4 GHz wireless items. Realistically, for the cost of the headset Logitech should have used 5.8 GHz.
Ultimately, I would recommend anyone who is thinking about buying these that they save their money and spend a little more and purchase the MLG sponsored A40 Wireless set from Astrogaming for $279.99 and save yourself the grief from these pieces of crap.
I have been using nothing but Logitech peripherals since I got my first PC which was a 386 DX 40 and you needed an 8-bit ISA bus card for one of Logitech's first mouses and have never had an issue with any product until now.
The G930 just takes the cake in being one of the most horrible items I have used to date and I would rather smash them with a sledge hammer then to sell it on Ebay and forsake other potential users with the complete fail that is the G930.

Just following ohms139 (who seems to be advertising the A40s?). Figure if you want to double post I'll double post my response.
I think there must be something going on with odd motherboards or mean wireless systems or conflicting drivers or something.
My G930s have been great (except with microwaves, 5.8Ghz would fix that). I use wifi (dual band wireless N), bluetooth, two wireless mice, wireless HD video to my TV, and a wireless keyboard (all in the same room). I get very few drops (1-2 durring a full day of gaming) and none of the pops/clicks/crackle that others report. I have had one pair that started dropping all the time after about a month of ownership but my roommates pair was still fine and the new pair (from RMA) still work great. I have also had the crackle problem with a laptop but a cheap powered hub fixed it.
I do hate their drivers but the hardware has been great and after I get the drivers working I don't have any major issues. Except for the games that don't know how to output 7.1 (we need a stereo mode Logitech!).
Wow the A40s don't sound worth it all all from what I have been able find in reviews and you need the external mixing box. Why does a wireless headset always show a wire in photos? Don't tell me they need to be plugged into a box I would have to carry with me? That sorta makes wireless pointless. They also only do 7.1 if you plug them into optical audio. Anyway there are people complaining about poor build quality for that headset as well. There might be a better value headset than the G930s but I don't think it is the A40s (they cost about $100 more than the already expensive G930s).
My current plugins (v1.9) for the legacy G930 drivers:

I've been having this problem since almost the same time I got the product and have found nothing on the forums that could point me in the right direction. Today, on a whim, I plugged in the USB cord to the headset while I was listening to music and the other side instantly started working again. Give it a shot, I'm hoping this will resolve the issue every time. I paid way too much for this headset to turn into a piece of junk.

This is my THIRD set of G930's. They are still a piece of **bleep**. All of them have come from Amazon. It doesn't even come with a decent instruction manual. Their tech support people are idiots. INDIANS. These act just like the other ones. Unplug and plug back in. They do not want to work with World of Tanks. I have a set of wired ones from Logitech that I bought waiting for this piece of **bleep** to come in. The wired one work ok. It just pisses me off to spend this kind of money for a piece of **bleep** that the company knows is a piece of **bleep** and will not fix the problem. MADE IN **bleep**ING CHINA.
