Shroud is currently using a Logitech G PRO X headset, and if you’re into gaming like me, there’s no way you have not heard of Shroud, who’s probably the legend of FPS games.
Shroud. The man, the myth, the living legend. Michael Grzesiek, aka Shroud, was born on 2nd June 1994 in Toronto, Canada. Growing up, he always had a thing for playing video games. Shroud Started his gaming career by playing CS: GO with Exertus and Manajuna, but he was later acquired by CompLexity gaming and Cloud 9 as a professional eSports player.
He left Cloud9 later on to become a full-time Twitch streamer and Youtuber, where he mostly played Fortnite and PUBG, gathering over 10.2 million followers with over 57 million views.
Although he moved from Twitch to Mixer, you can find him active on his YouTube channel playing Volarant, which also has 6.81 million subscribers and over 984 million views.
Now, to be just like him or match his skill set, you would need good gaming gear, and having a perfect gaming headset can solve most of the problems. This article will give all the information about what headset shroud uses.
What headset does shroud use?
Logitech sponsors Shroud’s gaming gear, and he’s currently using their customized Logitech G Pro X – Shroud edition headset.
Logitech G PRO X

Logitech has marketed this product as the “ultimate” pro-grade gaming headset, and it’s easy to see why.
First, these headphones come with 50mm drivers, responsible for producing precise sound imaging. Because of these significant diameter drivers, you can clearly listen to the enemy’s footsteps during the intense gaming session. Plus, the Logitech has also included a USB Dongle with this headset, which allows for 7.1 surround sound on a PC for better audio quality.
Logitech G PRO X also features a detachable 6 mm PRO microphone and Blue VO!CE filters that let you customize your sound. The Logitech G HUB software can also tune the mic to your voice. This would make your voice sound better and clearer during streaming so the audience can hear you.
Apart from this, these headphones are built with professional-grade durability in mind by coming with an aluminum fork and steel-reinforced headband for durability. Moreover, the memory foam earpads are ultra-comfortable and provide passive noise isolation, so you can enjoy your games without being interrupted by outside noise.
Lastly, this wireless headset can last up to 23 hours after a single charge, which is the good battery life for a gaming headset.
- 50mm drivers
- Clear sound staging
- Pro microphone and voice filters
- Good battery life
- Limited compatibility (doesn’t work with Xbox one)
What headset shroud had used in the past?
Before moving to Logitech G Pro X, the shroud used HyperX Cloud Flight – Wireless headset. Let’s check it out.
HyperX Cloud Flight – Wireless Gaming Headset
Asin – B077ZGRY9V
- Driver: 50mm
- Frequency response: 20 Hz – 20000 Hz
- Microphone: Bidirectional, detachable
- Type: Closed back
- Impedance: 32ohms
- Weight: 300g
- Battery life: 13 – 15 hours
Like Logitech, HyperX is also known for producing some of the finest gaming headsets, and this Cloud flight is one of them.
Any audio enthusiast knows that clarity is one of the most important aspects of sound quality. For that, HyperX cloud flight provides ultra-clear lows, mids, and highs that create an immersive and captivating listening experience.
Whether you’re gaming, watching a movie, or listening to music, HyperX Cloud Flight brings your audio to life with its dynamic soundscape. Its impedance is under 50 ohms, so it doesn’t need an amplifier to boost its audio quality.
HyperX cloud flight comes with a detachable mic, so you can easily switch between gaming and music modes in no time. The ear cups rotate up to 90°, so you can rest the headset on your shoulders when you’re not using it. The bold styling on the ear cups is sure to turn heads, and the wireless design means you don’t have to worry about tangled cords.
The signature symbol on the back of earcups (HX) comes with a built-in LED with several modes; Breathing, Solid, and turned off. Although it might look, it would drain the battery in no time, so I’d suggest you be careful while using it in a long gaming session.
On average, the headphone can last up to 30 hours, which comes drastically down to 13 hours with the LED being turned on continuously and almost 18 hours in breathing mode.
With a wide range of compatibility, HyperX cloud flight can be an ideal choice for any gamer or streamer.
- 90° rotatable earcups
- Good sound
