The Logitech G430 is a headset, which uses a USB adapter to be connected to the PC. This USB adapter has the USB ID 046d:0a4d:

Bus 003 Device 002: ID 046d:0a4d Logitech, Inc.

and is automatically recognized by the Linux kernel. The headset is supported by ALSA and shown as a following device:

                      Logitech Logitech G430 Gaming Headset at usb-0000:00:1d.0-1.1, full speed

Although the headset and the microphone can be used under Linux, the headset does not support 7.1 Surround Sound under Linux.
