Aside from the obvious attribute of sound quality, earmuffs are usually where a headset is deemed a success or failure in my book. The G930 feature large over-ear cups with padded leather. The inside edges of the cups are red and contrast the black padding and speaker covers nicely. I also want to point out the general shape of each earmuff. These seem more contoured to fit the average ear, rather than just a simple circular cup. Everything looks good here thus far but we will see how it holds up during testing.
The left earmuff houses all of the headset's controls. There are three programmable G-buttons as well as a mute button for the microphone and a volume roller on the face of the earmuff. The connector for the charging cable is located on the bottom of the cup and features an indicator LED that is solid green when the headphones are powered on. The LED flashes red while the unit is being charged.
On the backside of the earmuff is the surround sound switch and a power button with another LED indicator that lights up green when in use. The surround sound switch activates the 7.1 Dolby surround sound on-the-fly.
The microphone is attached to an arm that swings down into place. The entire length of the microphone is flexible and holds its position so you can get it in just the right place. There is a small red LED on the end of the microphone that indicates when the mute button has been activated.
Let's continue on and install the G930 and accompanying software.
