While it may seem a gimmick for most tech items, on Logitech G560 speakers there is more than meets the eye. If you are looking for a RGB product that will enhance your personal computer gaming experience, this might be the one.
Logitech has 2 decades of speaker-maker experience, and this was apparent the G560. The speakers didn t meet our expectations for audiophiles, but they were best in our gaming testing because they immersed us in their sound.

The Logitech G560 features six high powered RGB LEDs per speaker: four facing the rear and two for leading. At maximum brightness they might be just a little distracting in a dark room, but a nifty button near the top of the right speaker enables you to tone it down or turn them off completely. The default color cycle is pleasant but the rainbow color scheme doesn’t really have a purpose.
The Logitech G560 software allows you to select from two controls. Hardware control ditches the application and uses Bluetooth or AUX input devices for lighting. You get the same rainbow color cycle that also acts as an audio track visualizer which flashes and brightens with music being played. Select from fixed color, cycling colors, strobing lights that resembles breathing, visualizers that sync to music or even display still images accordingly.
When you first power on the G560, you’re greeted with a colorful setup screen. The foreground’s color is based on what ambient lighting preset you’ve chosen and the background is made up of circularly assigned colors that correspond to your designated program zones, like Screen sampler or Light music mode. These speakers will not provide the same experience as the HUE 2 Ambient, but they are an excellent start. However, since much of this effect depends on the back-facing LEDs, these speakers must be positioned right beside your display with their backs against a wall to get maximal benefit from them.
The SDK from Logitech lets developers integrate the G560’s features into any game. Some games already have the integration in place, with titles like League of Legends, Battlefield 1 and CS:GO all featuring custom colors for special events or effects. Logitech G560 has a number of features, including, but not limited to, built-in screen sampling that flashes when being shot at. Additionally the Discord integration and low ammo indicator are much coveted features.
The lighting and positional audio really impressed us as we played Fortnite. For example, DTS:X was great at telling us where someone shot at us from, which is difficult in some games. If you want to have a surround sound system without the complexity of a 5.1 or 7.1 set, this is the perfect prefect compromise for your needs.
The G560 includes a strong down-firing subwoofer that provide forceful response for explosively demanding sound effects. Adjustments in the program helped to some degree, but users who had linked bluetooth could turn the bass volume up to their liking.
It is disappointing to find the lack of independent bass or volume controls on these speakers when Logitech’s cheaper sets always have them. There are volume buttons near the top of the proper speaker, but that only adjusts the volume output from Windows/your Bluetooth device. However, the only situation where they might not be fantastic is if you live in a condo or have downstairs neighbors who enjoy quiet.
