Is the impressive Lightform and Lightspeed technologies enough to set these earbuds above the rest.

I've tested a fair collection of earbuds over the past few years, and one thing that has stood out to me so far is that earbuds haven't competed with headphones when it comes to a gaming environment. Between the broader list of desired features, to battery life, and overall comfort, there's no denying that an actual headset is still the best way to game. However, Logitech G is looking to flip that take on its head with their Fits earbuds, and ever since the gadget debuted in the UK last week, I've been putting them through the ringer to see if they can spur me away from a trusty headset for playing my favourite games. Before getting to whether it has or hasn't, let's talk about the technology under the hood and what makes the Fits so unique.

These in-ear devices look a bit like a pill with a bit of chewing gum stuck onto it, but that's by design, as Logitech has decided that the one thing that is holding earbuds back is the poor fit most tend to have. The silicon tips are useful for holding an earbud in place, but silicon tips are not moulded and shaped to your own actual ears, and this is where that strange plastic lump comes into its own. Using Logitech's Lightform moulding technology, when you set up your Fits, this plastic lump will heat up and will literally shape itself to suit your ears as best as it can. It's a truly unusual sensation to sit through, but when it's done after around 60 seconds you get some of the best fitting earbuds I've ever used. They never feel as though they are about to fall out, and the tight fit means you always have a seal that enhances the noise cancellation, which is even more helpful if you have a PC that likes to orchestrate a symphony of fans when playing your favourite games.

So, the fit and comfort levels of the Fits are very impressive, but what about the audio quality? Well, from my experience, this hasn't really been much to hammer home about. It's serviceable and fine, and isn't washed or dull, it just doesn't blow you away either. They are earbuds that are designed for gaming at the end of the day, meaning they provide clear, latency-free audio that allows you to play games without any issues, more so shooters where response time is king. If you do want to use the Fits for listening to music or watching a movie, they will fall short of other earbuds on the market, but then again, other earbuds tend to fall short in the connectivity and responsiveness side of things.

And talking about connectivity, the Fits can connect to pretty much everything you could hope for. iPhone, check. PC, check. Switch, PS4, PS5, Mac, Android, check, check, check, check, and check. And you can even have the Fits connected to your phone and PC at the same time via Bluetooth and the Lightspeed wireless dongle, with you able to flip between the two using one of the on-device tap controls. These controls also allow you to fiddle with volume, answer a call, skip songs, and all the typical mechanics that other earbuds allow for.

And this is the thing, the Fits, like so many other earbuds on the market, have a lot of similarities. As I've noted, this is clearly a device that better suits gamers, and it does, but the improvements and additions that allow for this aren't ground-breaking or revolutionary, they are just a tad bit better than the competition, with the same really being said for where the Fits lacks.

Don't get me wrong, the companion app that allows you to fiddle with sound profiles and qualities is cool and useful, and having seven hours of battery on the earbuds alone when using the draining Lightspeed wireless technology (with almost a day of charge when using regular Bluetooth and when factoring in the charging case), it's all very handy and impressive. But, you'd expect premium features like this in a device that retails at the premium price point of the Fits (clocking in at £229).

You can get a high-quality headset that does pretty much everything that these Fits earbuds do for a similar price tag, or can alternatively get a set of earbuds that produce elite level audio all within the same price bracket. And this is why I can't quite say that the Logitech G Fits will be making me want to bench a headset in favour of what they offer. Yes, the comfort level is a step beyond most earbuds, to the point where after wearing these for hours at a time, my ears feel fine and not numb and achy from an unnatural plastic body. But, I don't often find myself wearing earbuds for hours and hours at a time anyway, as headsets are just generally more comfortable thanks to padded ear cups and headbands.

This is an ad:

If you are looking to trade a headset for earbuds, there is a lot to love with the Fits, but just don't expect a product that stands a step above anything else on the market, because even when factoring in the really, really cool Lightform technology and the always impressive Lightspeed support, these are just good quality earbuds at best.
