Hey, I found myself coming to this website often whenever I wondered something about headphones and figured I'd finally make an account here, especially since I need some more detailed help than what Google searching has resulted.
I bought a Logitech G930 a few weeks ago. It's great, I love all the features and whatnot (I use it primarily on a Mac, which isn't supported, so I don't get to use the G keys or surround sound, but everything else works fine). My only complaint is that the audio quality is terrible. Anything I listen to with them that uses even the slightest amount of bass becomes grotesquely distorted and crackly.
I booted my Mac into Windows and tried out the Logitech Gaming Software to see if software drivers were the problem. After messing with the equalizer and turning each audio channel down from volume 11 (the max) down to 9, I tried listening to the same music. They seemed to sound better, but it was still unbearable, especially when playing games with lots of explosions.
I bought these off eBay for only $50 (it's a $150 headset) so while that may have been a great deal, it's possible that the physical drivers have been replaced. Either that, or the previous owner completely abused these headphones until the audio quality turned into what it is now. Or maybe they just sucked to begin with (I looked up this problem online, and many G930 owners seem to have this problem, so this may be the case afterall).
For whatever reason my G930 sounds terrible, I think that maybe replacing the physical drivers in it may resolve my problem (if you can think of something else I should do instead, please feel free to mention it). Can anyone advise me on what drivers I should buy as replacements? Will any 40mm drivers fit? I'd like to bump up this $150- headset to a $300+ "audiophile" grade headset, so feel free to mention the most expensive drivers there are (then again, I have no idea how expensive "expensive" headphone drivers are. I'd like to spend nothing more than $30 including shipping but I'm willing to go up to $50 if the sound is worth it). Some tips on what exactly I need to do to replace the drivers would be great too. Does this being a headset with lots of bells and whistles and fancy Windows software rather than just a pair of headphones make a difference? I looked online and saw that the headphone's drivers seem to be isolated in their own little compartment within the headset, so that's good. A YouTube tutorial would be helpful.
