Gamers can game on their PlayStation®5 via LIGHTSPEED 2.4GHz Wireless, while listening to Spotify on their phone via Bluetooth, and have their Switch at the ready, connected through 3.5mm aux, for a long matchmaking queue. They can then move from the livingroom to their PC setup and switch their A30 seamlessly to their PC via LIGHTSPEED 2.4GHz and then connect to their Steam Deck via Bluetooth. And with the new Logitech G mobile app, players can optimize game and voice audio profiles on the new A30 for a tailored gaming experience.
“The vision of a new A30 headset that enables a play anything, anywhere experience meant we needed to achieve two primary goals. First, we needed to deliver a high performance audio and ultra comfortable headset that comes in a sleek and customizable design. Second, we needed to create a headset that can connect to multiple platforms in a variety of ways: console, PC, handheld or mobile,” said TIffany Beers, head of innovation at Logitech G. “The A30 delivers maximum flexibility, mobility, style and comfort in a modern gaming headset that plays on all platforms, so players can master all the playstyles they love.”
The sleek new design of the A30 headset comes standard in two chic colorways, navy and white. The addition of swivel, cushy memory foam padding in the earpads and headband and just-right clamping force creates an easy balanced feel.
As part of its sleek design, the A30 headset features both an advanced detachable boom microphone and an integrated mic, so no matter if you are home playing your favorite game or on-the-go making a phone call, you are ensured crystal clear communications. The A30 delivers carefully balanced, high-fidelity audio with custom tuned 40mm drivers for an immersive audio experience.
The A30 boasts a battery life of more than 27 hours, enabling low-latency gameplay that can handle epic play sessions.
Players can express their gaming aesthetic by choosing from an existing collection of speaker tag designs, or take their headset to the next level by customizing their own design on the Astro website.

Logitech G, a brand of Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) and leading innovator of gaming technologies and gear, today announced the PRO Racing Wheel and PRO Racing Pedals, a stunning new professional-grade racing setup designed with and for professional sim drivers. Engineered for the most realistic and immersive racing experience possible, the PRO Racing Wheel features a new, high-performance Direct Drive engine along with TRUEFORCE feedback technology to deliver the most precise and pure connection to racing.
“Logitech’s PRO Racing Wheel makes the sim racing experience incredibly realistic. I'm able to feel the conditions of the track and how the car changes during the race, which is game-changing. When using this wheel at home, I feel like I'm right there on track,” said Lando Norris, F1 Racer for McLaren.
The PRO Racing Wheel’s all-new Direct Drive motor is capable of an impressive 11 newton meters of force with an incredibly low-latency response. When paired with TRUEFORCE—a Logitech G exclusive, proprietary high-definition force feedback technology—the Direct Drive motor delivers unrivaled racing realism with higher frequencies of response than ever. As a result, sim racers can now experience in-game physics and audio with much higher levels of precision and near instantaneous feedback, with everything from road conditions to motor vibrations.
“Fans of our racing wheels and pedals can expect a serious upgrade in realism, performance and control, as well as design and durability,” said Richard Neville, head of simulation and controllers for Logitech Gaming. “We analyzed everything—from how many gear shifts, turns and impacts an 11 newton meter wheel takes, to which materials and components will last through even the most grueling racing conditions.”
The result is a PRO Racing Wheel system that delivers unmatched realism, driver information and connection to the car without any delay or abstraction that professional sim racers demand.
Designed for pro racers, the PRO Racing Wheel features:
- Intuitive Wheel Design - Buttons and dials are precisely located in a “thumb sweep” so racers never have to take their hands off the wheel or eyes off the road.
- Magnetic Gear Shift Paddles - Designed with a magnetic system that uses contactless hall-effect sensors, and additional tactile magnets, resulting in a realistic, mechanical feel that accurately simulates a professional race car, coupled with the durability for millions of gear shifts.
- Dual Clutch Paddles - Analog paddles deliver a perfect tactile response for a variety of racing functions. When configured as a dual clutch setup, they offer the perfect advantage when launching from the starting grid. Alternative configurations include a handbrake and two additional axes, so racers can program paddles as gas and brake, affording analog control for different racers.
- Customizable Settings Display - Whether racers need different settings for different racing titles, or for different cars within the same title, they can easily configure important wheel settings within five different onboard racing profiles on the fly.
- Quick Release Mounting - Redesigned clamping system lets desk-based racers easily mount and remove their wheel while retaining standard bolt holes for those mounting to a racing seat.
The PRO Racing Pedals have a realistic load cell brake and can be completely customized to fit the racing setups and styles. Key features include:
- Pressure Detection - The pedals register the force racers apply allowing for improved muscle memory and the perfect amount of braking power improves driver feel and delivers a more consistent racing performance.
- Customizable Pedals - Easily accessible and quickly allows racers to adjust the feel of all three pedals. The clutch and gas pedals can be adjusted firmer or softer using a set of swappable springs and the brake pedal via a selection of elastomers. Both the gas and clutch pedal also use contactless hall effect sensors, ensuring their longevity.
- Modular Design - Every pedal can be moved horizontally to create the perfect spacing for each racer, and removable pedal modules make customization a breeze.
The Logitech G PRO Racing Wheel is available in two versions, one that is compatible with PC, PlayStation®5 and PlayStation®4 consoles, and one that is compatible with PC, Xbox Series X|S® and Xbox One®.
The Logitech G PRO Racing Pedals are compatible with PCs with Windows® 10/11 through a USB port, and if connected to PRO Racing Wheel: Xbox Series X|S®, Xbox One®, PlayStation®5 or PlayStation®4 consoles.
The Logitech G PRO Racing Wheel and PRO Racing Pedals were unveiled at Logitech’s inaugural Logi Play event, a landmark event celebrating gaming and streaming culture. Learn more about the event here.
Pricing and Availability
The Logitech G PRO Racing Wheel and PRO Racing Pedals are expected to be available on LogitechG.com and at global retailers in September of 2022 for a suggested retail price of $999/€1099 (Wheel) $349/€349 (Pedals).

Logitech G, a brand of Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) and leading innovator of gaming technologies and gear, today announced the launch of the Logitech G FITS True Wireless Gaming Earbuds, which mold to any ear to create a custom fit using Logitech’s patented Lightform technology. Powered by Lightspeed and Bluetooth wireless, Logitech G FITS enable gaming-grade audio performance on PC, Mac, Playstation, Nintendo Switch and mobile devices.
“This is the industry’s first custom-fit earbud for gaming,” said Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of Logitech Gaming. “Simply press a button, and our Lightform technology will give you a bud that molds perfectly in your ear. We combine this with our LIGHTSPEED wireless dongle to give you a wireless earbud with true gaming-grade performance.”
Logitech G FITS are the first earbuds to feature LIGHTSPEED wireless, giving users pro-grade connection, high-performance audio response, strong connectivity and a long battery life. Players can connect via LIGHTSPEED to their PC, Mac, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, docked Nintendo Switch and Android devices through USB-A or USB-C. With up to seven hours of listening time and an additional eight hours with the charging case on LIGHTSPEED, users can play games, music and movies all day. When connected via Bluetooth, they can listen for 10 hours with an additional 12 hours with the charging case.
Like fingerprints, each person’s ears are unique. Since most earbuds only come in a few generic sizes, it’s nearly impossible to get earbuds that fit perfectly. With Logitech G FITS, and its patented Lightform technology, gamers can get a contoured, custom fit in 60 seconds. Using Lightform and the Logitech G FITS mobile app will trigger a number of embedded LEDs, which will harden the gel-filled tips to the contours of each ear. The custom mold technology provides a comfortable, secure fit that won’t fall out and creates a seal that blocks out noise to produce a best-in-class passive sound isolation effect.
Its elegant pill-shaped design is available in two colors: black or white to fit any style. With gaming-grade performance and innovations, G FITS is a true wireless earbud option for gamers who prioritize freedom and a perfect fit.
In addition to comfort, fit and passive noise cancellation, Logitech G FITS deliver full, warm and detailed sound with deep punchy bass. With the Logitech G FITS app, gamers can access EQs that are optimized for FPS or RPG games, music, podcasts, Bass Boosts and more–or have the option to finely tune their own EQ settings.
For clear in-game communications, each earbud contains two built-in beamforming microphones. If you’re playing with friends or streaming, everything you say will be heard loud and clear.
Logitech G FITS are being unveiled at Logitech’s inaugural Logi Play event, a landmark event celebrating gaming and streaming culture. Learn more about the event here.

Logitech For Creators, a brand extension of Logitech® (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) that is dedicated to empowering all creators to pursue their passions, unveils two new solutions to achieve pro-level streaming and creating. Logitech Blue Sona is an active dynamic XLR microphone featuring ClearAmp technology that delivers a superior studio-quality sound experience. Logitech Litra Beam is a premium streaming desktop key light with TrueSoft technology for shaping and directing light to achieve professional lighting effects. Both solutions empower creators in all-new ways.
Capture Broadcast-Quality Sound With Blue Sona, Active Dynamic XLR Microphone
Blue Sona reinvents the traditional broadcast mic for today’s streamers and creators. Taking Blue Microphones’ legendary audio quality to the next level, Blue Sona combines advanced tech and a purpose-built design for professional-level game streaming, podcasting, and video content.
“Blue Sona was specifically engineered for creators,” said Soren Pedersen, senior product manager for Logitech For Creators. “From its built-in preamp to its elegant camera-ready design, Blue Sona is unlike other XLR mics on the market.”
Blue Sona features built-in ClearAmp technology, a key innovation that streamlines the XLR experience by delivering a strong +25dB gain boost — no external mic booster required. Other advanced features include a dual-diaphragm capsule and supercardioid pickup pattern, which focus on the voice while taming the environment by rejecting unwanted vibrations, key clicks, and background noise. This pro-level performance gets a creator-first design with a 290-degree swivel mount1 for complete freedom of mic placement in any desktop setup.
An XLR connection easily integrates with audio interfaces and external mixers to fine-tune sound. Sleek and versatile, Blue Sona comes in Graphite and Off-White color options and features interchangeable windscreens in Red and Graphite for a camera-ready performance.
Shape & Direct Light With Litra Beam, Premium Streaming Desktop Key Light
Litra Beam enables creators to use light to control the look and feel of their content in all-new ways. An innovative beam design with a three-way adjustable desktop stand featuring height, tilt, and rotation offers endless positioning flexibility to shape and direct light. Control content and easily create mood and tone by placing and adjusting one or more Litra Beams in your setup to achieve a range of professional lighting techniques including Front, Split, Butterfly, and Rembrandt.
“Digital content is becoming more like cinematography,” said Arnaud Perret-Gentil, senior global product lead for Logitech For Creators. “We designed Litra Beam to do more than just deliver balanced LED light but to enable desktop streamers and creators to shape and direct this light to control the mood and expression of their content.”
Pre-stream or mid-stream, streamers and creators can fine-tune their lighting with Litra Beam. Buttons on the back of the device allow for quick access to five brightness and five color temperature settings (warm candlelight to cool blue), as well as continuous, stepless adjustment through the entire range, from 2700K-6500K. For even more control and convenience, Logitech also offers the Logitech G HUB desktop app, which enables further flexibility in adjusting brightness by percentage values and color temperature in Kelvin, control over one or more Litra Beams, as well as managing lighting presets. G HUB gives creators total control over their Logitech streaming gear including Litra Glow, Blue Yeti mics, and StreamCam, as well as gaming gear from Logitech G on one desktop app.
Litra Beam solves common challenges for today’s streamers and creators seeking to level up their content. Proprietary TrueSoft technology delivers balanced, full-spectrum LED light with cinematic color accuracy for a natural, radiant look across all skin tones. Its frameless diffuser radiates wide light to eliminate harsh shadows and is certified safe for all-day streaming, passing even the strictest UL testing guidelines2. Moreover, its slim, modern design with USB and AC outlet compatibility3 goes where other lights can’t go, making it easier than ever to achieve professional lighting effects in unique spaces and setups.
