Logitech G560: Come for the Sound, Stay for the Light Show

Logitech has been killing it on all fronts as of late. On the audio side, Their MX Sound Speakers are an awesome package for $100, and doubling that gets you some of the most interesting desktop gaming speakers in recent memory.

The Logitech G560 LIGHTSYNC Speakers are feature-packed. Most notable is the side and rear-firing game-driven four zone RGB lighting that extends the scene from your monitor to the rest of your gaming space, IllumiRoom lite if you will. The profile count is limited for now, but Logitech has been good at getting similar features adopted in the past, and any additional immersion is always welcome. I actually had even more fun with the music visualizer option, and of course, the speakers can also sync with the rest of Logitech’s gear.


The speakers themselves are no slouch at 240 watts with DTS:X Ultra (no OS X support), and they’ll take your audio over USB, Bluetooth, or 3.5mm. Make no mistake that this is a big subwoofer for going under a desk, and the cables connecting the sub to the speakers are also very thick and difficult to wrangle.

The G560s aren’t going to replace your audiophile-grade bookshelf speakers, but as a gaming-focused product that doesn’t break the bank, they’re my new fave. If you’re really into RGB or the Logitech G ecosystem, they’re an even easier recommendation.
