Logitech targets gamers with new wireless headset and Prodigy mouse
Logitech has its sights thoroughly set on gamers with a couple of new accessories announced at CES. On deck are the new G533 Wireless Gaming Headset (opens in new tab) and the G203 Prodigy Gaming Mouse — both of which were built to just for gamers.
First up, the G533 Wireless Gaming Headset looks to be a solid option for high-quality sound in games and more. Logitech says the headset can replicate 7.1 surround sound, allowing you to virtually hear positional audio and environmental effects in-game. Logitech is also talking up the wireless tech in the G553, which allows the headset to achieve super low latency. Battery life is also a highlight, with the G553 netting 15 hours on a single charge.
The G203 Prodigy gaming mouse, on the other hand, offers up what looks to be a solid and affordable option for gamers. Built atop the same design as the older G100S mouse, the G203 Prodigy offers packs greater accuracy with a new 200-6,000 DPI sensor. And while it will work just fine right out of the box, you can also program the mouse's lighting, buttons and DPI with Logitech's gaming software.
Both the G553 headset and Prodigy gaming mouse will be available later in January for $150 and $50, respectively.

Does the headset work with Xbox One S?
Going by Logitech's website, the headset uses a USB transmitter and need drivers. I would assume that no, it does not work with the Xbox
I wanted to know too but sadly it seems it's proprietary USB adapter only and drivers are only on Windows.
I'm interested. I have the wired G35s I think. Time to lose the wire.
Wait, what? The mouse looks exactly like the G102 prodigy mouse they released rcently, and in fact, I own one. How is the G203 different from the G102?
Er, read the article. The answer is there.
Are we EVER going to get a successor to the G700s? I like mine a lot, and think it deserves an update.
