Logitech Headsets

There was a time when headsets were once only worn by radio operators and pilots, nowadays we see headsets everywhere – used for listening music, watching television and even for playing multiplayer role playing games online. One of the best headset brands currently in the market is undoubtedly Logitech.

Logitech Group, whose holding company Logitech International is based in Switzerland, is a Swiss company which designs and manufactures peripheral devices for desktop computers and laptops. It initially designed and sold its own computer mouse for mass consumer use, which made Logitech’s brand famous, and then it moved on to several other computer related devices. Now it is even making universal programmable remote controls, moving beyond the computer peripherals. However, it still remains strong in its previous product categories, announcing the production of its billionth mouse in December 2008. The company also has established branches in America, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Australia, and Asia Pacific.

Currently, Logitech has several types of products in the headset category, from tiny, portable notebook headsets to large, comfortable surround-sound headsets.

Their most basic headset is the ClearChat™ Stereo. It has a noise cancelling microphone which filters out annoying background noise and clarifies sound. The headset volume is very easy to adjust, and the microphone can also be muted, with the in-line volume controls in the headset itself. The microphone can be rotated out of the way when watching a movie or listening to music, and the headband is adjustable so it can be made to fit tightly yet comfortably. Priced at $19.99, it is their most inexpensive headset.

For a few dollars more, customers can buy the ClearChat® Style, priced at $24.99, which has all the features of the ClearChat™ Stereo but differs slightly in design. The ClearChat® Style has a behind-the-head design which is much more comfortable and extends less pressure on the head and the hair. It also comes in four colour plates red, blue, orange, and black, which can be swapped when the mood strikes.

The Precision PC Gaming Headset was made specifically for gamers. It has an open air design which allows gamers to stay cool no matter how many hours they play and how intense the game. The 40 mm neodymium stereo drivers in the headset deliver crisp and precise sounds, perfect for gameplay. It retails for $29.99.

The USB Headset H330 can be connected to the computer using USB connections – which makes it much simpler to use. The USB connection eliminates the use for a soundcard too, so it doesn’t matter if the computer’s soundcard is subpar. This plug and play feature makes it compatible for both Mac and PC, and the headset retails for $29.99.

The ClearChat™ Pro USB has, in addition to all the features previously mentioned, a laser tuned audio device which clears distortion and improves sound quality greatly. There is also an equalizer on the headset itself, which helps to optimize the sound of internet calls, music, and movies. It is priced at $49.99.

The ClearChat™ PC Wireless is one of the latest and most popular of Logitech products. Its wireless transmitter has a range of ten meters, so users may move quite far from the computer while still being able to listen to music, podcasts or radio. At $99.99, it is Logitech’s second most expensive headset.

The G35 Surround Sound Headset is Logitech’s most advanced gaming headset. It uses Dolby® 7.1 technology to power its surround-sound feature so gamers can hear the footsteps of their enemies before seeing them. It also has three customizable G-keys on the headset, and is priced at $129.99.
