Sound, light and simulation in focus at Logi Play

Historically, Logitech has never run any big events to present products of various kinds, but instead run separate presentations scattered over the years. This year, however, the company has changed this and organized Logi Play where the company invited partners, streamers and press to give them an exclusive preview of a range of new products.

During the show, Logitech delivered a number of new products that may be interesting depending on what you do on the PC or gaming front. In total, there were eight products adapted for simulator racing, streaming, cloud gaming and gaming on multiple devices, and below you will find information about these.

We have already written about the new cloud game console G Cloud and you can find a link to this above. To summarize, it is a handheld game console with a similar design to the Nintendo Switch or Steam Deck that is built to enjoy games via Xbox Cloud Gaming or Nvidia Geforce Now. Primary release of this will take place in the US in October and the price is 299 dollars. There is no information about global release yet.

Furthermore, Logitech showcased a product long sought after by fans of simulator racing. Logitech G Pro Racing Wheel and G Pro Pedals are the names of the new additions and the big news with this kit is that it is a direct drive wheel, which means that the wheel is directly connected to the force feedback motor and provides a proper resistance. Logitech reports that the wheel offers 11 newton meters of torque, which compares to the Logitech G923’s 2.1 newton meters.

To take advantage of the powerful force feedback engine, Logitech’s Trueforce technology is also used, which collects vibration data from car games to convert this into a varied and relatively real shaking experience.

The steering wheel is 30 centimeters wide and is attached to the base for quick replacement if needed, but at the moment only Logitech’s own steering wheel is compatible with the base. The steering wheel is equipped with buttons, levers and controls that can be used to control games or make fine adjustments to the gaming experience during the games. At the steering wheel, there are paddles with magnetic switches that give the user a distinct clicking experience that you can use to change gears.

The paddles, as well as the buttons on the steering wheel, are customizable and can be freely reconfigured. Among other things, it is possible to put gas and brake on the paddles, which can be useful if you don’t have the opportunity to use the foot pedals. The unit is also equipped with a small screen which, among other things, shows setting profiles.

G Pro Pedals can be purchased for the steering wheel and these are connected to a computer or console via USB-A. The pedals can be adjusted relatively freely laterally for optimal distance, and Logitech ships with a range of different springs and other accessories that give you the opportunity to choose how much or how little resistance you want.

The G Pro Racing Wheel and G Pro Pedals are sold separately for SEK 11,990 and SEK 4,190 respectively, which in total comes to nearly SEK 16,000 for the entire kit. Release now takes place in September. Logitech offers two different variants that can be connected to Playstation 4/5 or Xbox One/Series X/S. Both variants are compatible with PC. Playseat was also on hand to show off new products Playseat Trophy which has been developed to be used with Logitech’s new racing accessories.

Logitech G Fits is the name of Logitech’s first own true wireless headphones. As the label reveals, it is a pair of wireless headphones adapted for gaming and uses, among other things, Logitech’s own Lightspeed transmission technology to minimize delay, and the Lightspeed dongle comes with it, which can be connected to all possible USB-C equipped devices.

G Fits also support bluetooth, which is more useful if you want to listen to music on your mobile or watch movies. The advantage of using bluetooth before Lightspeed is that you get a little more battery time. When bluetooth is used, you can listen for up to 10 hours and with the battery in the charging case, the total usage time is 22 hours. In Lightspeed use, the figures are 7 hours in the headphones and another 8 hours in the case for a total time of 15 hours.

In addition to the Lightspeed technology, G Fits also offers a unique plug that adapts to the user’s ear. When used for the first time, the plugs are molded to your ear with the help of UV lamps, which provides a sealing sound experience and that the earphones get a perfect fit for the user and are thus held in place.

Logitech G Fits will be released in October in the US, where they will cost $229. Release in Sweden takes place in February.

Continuing on gaming audio, Logitech delivered news in the Astro family. Astro A30 is the name of the new headset and is compatible with PC, console and mobile. Like its sibling in the Logitech G family, the A30 supports the Lightspeed transmission protocol, which can be accessed by plugging the included dongle into any device. The headset also supports bluetooth and can be used with a cable. If for some reason you would like to use Lightspeed, bluetooth and cable at the same time, this is also possible.

When it comes to form and design, the Astro A30 relies on designs used in previous Astro headsets with its rectangular covers dressed in fairy clothing. Both the frame and the cushions are equipped with memory foam for greater comfort.

The microphone is detachable, but even without an external microphone, you can talk to teammates in games via integrated microphones. The A30 automatically senses when the boom microphone is removed and immediately switches to using the integrated microphones. The sound elements in the covers are 40 mm in size and the battery life is a total of 27 hours.

In October, the Astro A30 will appear in stores with a recommended price of SEK 2,599 and is offered in navy blue and white. If you want to put a more personal touch on the appearance, it is possible to order plates that sit on the outside of the covers, which you can design yourself or choose one of the company’s own designed variants.

For streamers, products for sound recording and lighting were presented. Under the banner Logitech For Creators, the company has presented two products that will ensure that streamers both look good in the camera and sound good.

First up is the Blue Sona microphone that comes with the company’s Clearamp technology, which among other things gives the user up to 25dB gain without an amplifier. The microphone is connected to a sound card or sound mixer via XLR cable and is equipped with double diaphragms where one focuses on your voice and the other works to keep nearby noise out of the stream or recording.

Blue Sona is now available in stores and the price tag is SEK 4,299. The microphone comes in black and white and has replaceable wind shields.

For video creators, a new lamp named Litra Beam was also presented, which is a flexible lamp that can be placed next to the screen. The lamp can be turned in several different ways for optimal lighting. On the back of the lamp is a row of easily accessible buttons that allow you to adjust the brightness and degree of warmth of the white light.

Just like Blue Sona, Litra Beam has been released in stores and can be purchased for SEK 1,499.

In addition to the products mentioned above, updates were also mentioned for the streaming software Streamlabs where the focus is on easier collaboration between streamers who can more easily interact with other streamers, including streaming together. As the icing on the cake, the chair makers Herman Miller gave a sneak peek at an upcoming gaming chair that they produced in collaboration with Logitech. More information about this play will come on October 6.
