How does an eco-friendly gaming headset get made?

© Courtesy of Logitech The Logitech G435 Lightspeed will sell for $79.99.

Logitech has unveiled its new headset designed for gamers. In addition to its embedded technology, this new model stands out from the competition through its environmentally responsible production which includes the use of recycled plastic and carbon offsets.

This new wireless headset, the G435 Lightspeed, is, according to the Swiss manufacturer, a completely environmentally responsible design. Indeed, it is certified carbon neutral, which means that the company finances carbon offsets to reduce the product’s carbon impact to zero. In addition, the headset includes a minimum of 22% recycled content in all of its plastic components. The paper packaging comes from forests certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).

The G435 is now the lightest wireless headset from Logitech G (the gaming arm of the brand) at 165 grams. It has 40mm audio drivers and dual beam-forming microphones that amplify voice sound and reduce background noise, in addition to eliminating the arm usually associated with the headset. Note that the package also includes left and right Braille indicators to make it easy for visually impaired people to put their headphones on the right way.

The result is highly versatile, equally useful for playing or listening to music as watching a series on a streaming platform, and it connects easily to a smartphone, computer or a game console. This eco-friendly headset will be available this month at a price of US$79.99.
