Razer Leviathan vs Logitech G560 which is a better choice?

Do you spend a considerable amount of time in front of your PC? Perhaps you love watching movies, listening to music, or playing your favorite games. For that interactive and immersive entertainment experience, you need a pair of great-sounding speakers. But with so many options available in the market, where do you even begin?

The speakers that we are looking at here today- the Razer Leviathan and the Logitech G560, both make excellent PC speakers. We shall be comparing these two to find out which is the best PC choice for you.

So, if you are ready, let’s dive right in!

The design

Let’s face it!

When you are in the market searching for the best PC speakers for you, the first thing you are going to notice is the design. As far as overall design goes the Logitech G560 speaker does not disappoint. It comes with two round-shaped speakers and a rectangular subwoofer. 

The satellite speakers are 5.82 inches tall, have a width of 6.53 inches, and a depth of 4.84 inches. Both the satellite speakers weigh 3.9lbs or 1.79kgs.  The Logitech subwoofer has a width of 10.3 inches, a height of 15.90 inches, and a depth of 8.15 inches. It weighs 12.2 lbs or 5.5 kgs. It oozes style especially when you add in the lighting features. 

Connecting to your PC is quick and easy. All you need is to connect the two satellite speakers to the PC monitor cables and the subwoofer to the PC using a USB cable. The subwoofer will blend in on almost any background or setting. It is made out of thick and robust plastic. Everything feels robust and with a high-quality build. But here’s the thing though. The speakers are not exactly what you would consider small by PC speaker standards. Then there is this part…The subwoofer is connected directly with the speakers as a single unit which then means that you cannot turn off the subwoofer on its own. If you share a wall with parents for instance, then you could end up being a nuisance.

But how about the Razer Leviathan?

Unlike the Logitech G560 which is designed as a PC speaker, the Razer Leviathan is a TV soundbar. But don’t let this discourage you as it still works perfectly with your computer monitor. It features a front grill that not only has the Razer logo but also allows you to see the speakers inside. 

The Razer Leviathan also comes with a small-sized subwoofer that is only 10x 8x 8 inches. The subwoofer is connected with a wire which simultaneously supplies its power. It weighs 9.76 lbs or 4.4kgs. The control buttons are well set at the top on the back edge and include a large power button and volume controls. On the flip side, there is no volume indicator on the Razer Leviathan and the speakers also don’t come with a remote.

The verdict:

The Logitech G560 takes the crown when it comes to the overall design. Sure you cannot disconnect the subwoofer but there is no denying the awesome lighting experience and the stunning shape of the speakers. The Razer Leviathan however is not far behind and offers a stylish design in the soundbar and the subwoofer. That said the Razer Leviathan doesn’t offer the type of lighting features that you get with the Logitech G560. 

The performance and output

 

The Logitech G560 offers excellent performance with rich and immersive output. Granted it is built as a gaming speaker but the Logitech will handle any situation you throw at it whether it’s music or watching movies. It offers a maximum output of 240 watts and has a frequency response range of 40Hz to 18kHz. The bass is where it truly shines as it is deep while also being clear. But that’s not all. The speakers also perform extremely well during the high notes resulting in sharp and crisp sounds. Simply put you will definitely enjoy the audio on the Logitech G560. 

What’s more, since it offers surround sound, you can strategically place the two satellite speakers in your room for the best experience. While the side speakers provide a similar output to what you might get in top-quality high-end headsets, couple these with the subwoofer and your movie, music, or gameplay just took you to a whole other level. That said, it’s only fair if we pointed out a few shortcomings with the Logitech G560. 

First off, while the speaker lights will respond to motion on the screen they do not precisely match the tone of color on the screen. Instead, the speakers flash different types of colors during rapid and intense moments. That said it is not all bad as the speakers will show stunning colors during slow and steady motion on the screen. 

Now let’s talk about the Razer Leviathan Don’t let the small frame of the Razer Leviathan fool you. It produces a huge sound which you are likely to find enough for a medium-sized room.  It has a frequency response range of 180Hz to 20kHz. Indeed one of the main standout features of the Leviathan is its powerful subwoofer despite the small design. Even at maximum volume, there is no distortion in the deep bass. And what’s more, it offers you a surround sound option to make your gaming, music, or movies much more immersive. 

However, you may sometimes find the bass to be a bit too overwhelming on the other sound effects, especially when watching a movie, but it is still an excellent setup for music. The overall sound is great but you may find that you need to do a bit of balancing to get it just right. Often this is a problem that you can overcome with the three available presets. 

The Verdict:

Both the Logitech G560 and the Razer Leviathan score high marks on output and performance. However, the Logitech offers more bass. Both speakers offer surround sound which helps to enhance your gaming and entertainment experience. 

Extra features

When it comes to features, the one that truly stands out with the Logitech is the LIGHTSYNC RGB. This feature makes the whole experience with the speakers truly immersive as the lighting reacts to the sounds and rhythm of the audio. 

What’s more, you can even personalize it with customizable colors.  And oh wait, there’s more!  The Logitech G Hub allows you to select any 4 areas on your monitor. The LIGHTSYNC engine will then read pixels on the selected area on the screen and match the colors to the speaker. And just while you thought it was all over, there’s the audio visualizer. This feature allows you to bring your music to life by selecting between a soft lighting effect or high pulse effect, while also customizing the colors. 

Turning our attention to the Razer Leviathan speakers. Okay, right off the bat, you are not going to get the same lighting features as you do with the Logitech. That said, you do get Bluetooth v4.0 connectivity which lets you connect extra devices up to 30 ft away seamlessly. The Bluetooth also provides a clear crisp sound similar to what you would get in a wired connection. Its small size design means you can simply place the Razer Leviathan under your monitor and not have to deal with the clutter of wires and other speakers. It takes just a few seconds to get everything running. 

With the 3 preset equalizer settings, you choose between the best audio settings for music, watching movies, or enjoying a gaming experience. 

The verdict:

As far as features go, Logitech is the clear winner. Not only does it offer great output, but it also makes for a more immersive gaming experience. The Razer Leviathan however does offer Bluetooth connectivity allowing you to connect several devices wirelessly for up to 30 ft.  

The Price

The Logitech G560 will set you back $200 while the Razer Leviathan costs around $229.  Are the prices worth it compared to the prices of other 2.1 speakers available in the market? Well for one, Logitech does offer LIGHTSYNC technology and the experience makes it all worth it. The Razer Leviathan costs slightly more than the Logitech but doesn’t offer some of the cool features of the Logitech. 

The verdict:

Logitech G560 is the clear winner when it comes to cost. Plus it offers a much more immersive gaming experience and offers deeper bass.
