Enjoy my Logitech G333 VR Earbuds for Meta Quest 2 Review. You can buy these earbuds for $34.99 or £40.96 from Amazon US here → https://amzn.to/3oiZLm3 or from Amazon UK here → https://amzn.to/3rwPNiR.

Overview

These earbuds go into your ears to help improve immersion in VR, provide deeper bass, and they have a custom length cable that makes them fit perfectly around your Quest 2 headset without creating unnecessary loose cabling that can get in the way whilst you game.

In the nicely presented box, you get the earbuds all nicely presented to you when you open the box up for the first time. Underneath the earbuds, is some documentation, and you also get three white-coloured velcro straps to help you locate and secure the cable around your Quest 2 headset.

You also get two extra sets of large and small-sized ear tips, whilst the medium-size ear tips come already attached to the earbuds. Each rubberised ear tip material fitted well enough in my own ears. I didn’t feel I needed to swap the medium set for either the larger or smaller sizes, but it is nice to have these, should you find the medium set is too large or too small for your own ear canal. Getting a good seal in your ear is very important if you want to get the best out of these in-ear earbuds, and get the best bass response from the small, yet powerful, built-in drivers.

Installation

Printed on the inside of the box is a small visual guide on how best to attach the earphone cable onto your Quest 2 headset. It’s a very simple process and although the length of cable is long enough to allow you to route the cable around the back of a head strap, Logitech has chosen the more generic method of positioning the loose cable along the front of the headset.

I’ve chosen to install the earbuds on the KIWI Design Elite Strap, it is very similar to the official Elite Strap, as well as the default soft strap. So installation will be very similar to what the majority of head straps you might also have attached to your Quest 2.

To install the cable you first have to pass the longer portion of the cable through the top head strap and use the first velcro strap to secure it down in place. Personally, I don’t think this is required because the head strap usually has velcro here. So I would just use that to secure it in place.

Next, you insert the right-angled 3.5mm audio jack into the audio port of the Quest 2, and then attach the short side of the flat-shaped cable onto the left side of your head strap, using one of the two spare velcro straps.

Finally, you then attach the longer part of the cable onto the other side of your Quest 2 head strap using the last available velcro strap. And that’s it! Both earbuds will now dangle nicely, near your ears, allowing you to easily put the head strap on and then quickly insert each earbud into your ears.

Audio Quality & Comparison

To test and compare the audio of these earbuds, I’ll be comparing the Logitech earbuds against a pair of my favourite Quest 2 noise isolating earbuds from Eyglo. These cost half the price of the Logitech earbuds, they also have a custom cable length that’s just a long enough length, and their audio quality is excellent.

After giving G333 VR earbuds a thorough listen alongside the Eyglo noise isolating earbuds, my conclusion was that they sounded very similar in general sound quality. I would say the Logitech has a little warmer tone to its overall sound quality, and although I love the deep bass of the Eylgos, I found the bass on the Logitech’s sounded less punchy, but they were more refined. Comparing them both made the bass on the Eyglos sound muddier with less detail. 

As for the mid-range, I think the Logitech’s sounded ever so slightly better than the Eyglo earbuds. And the treble on the Eyglos sounded much better for me. So if you prefer your high end and don’t mind less detail in the bass, then the Eyglos sound better, but if you like a more accurate bass and mid-range, and less impactful treble, then the Logitech earbuds might sound better for you.

I also found the thinner cable on the Eyglo earbuds made it feel lighter around my ears and it looks more discrete on the headset too, whereas the wider and thicker cabling on the Logitech earbuds made it feel more rigid as it dangled beside my ears, creating a little extra downforce on the cable than the Eyglo earbuds.

Even though the dome shape of the ear tips was similar, I found the Eylgos sat in my ears better and they also created a better seal in my ear canal too. However, I keep hearing a squishing sound when inserting the Eyglo ear tips, whereas the Logitech ear tips didn’t do this and they were a little more rigid and required a little more adjustment to really get them comfortably in my ears.

Overall Impressions

When you compare them to the Eyglos noise isolating earbuds (which retail for less than half the cost of these Logitech earbuds) it’s very easy to swing to the much cheaper earbuds. However, they each have deciding pros and cons to them, based on your own personal listening tastes. 

If you are price conscious, then I think the noise isolating earbuds from Eyglos might be the better buy, but if you want better refinement in your audio, and a better overall build quality that should last the test of time, and a 2-year hardware warranty, then I would give the G333 VR earbuds from Logitech a listen.
