Logitech shows new Freedom Bluetooth headset
Logitech has unveiled its new Bluetooth mobile phone headset, the Logitech Mobile Freedom Headset. This new $99 headset features a different design, the latest Bluetooth 1.2 chipset, which includes Adaptive Frequency Hopping (AFH) technology to reduce problematic Wi-Fi interference, and the company's patent-pending WindStop technology.

Wind noise is a major problem for mobile phones. Logitech says that even a car's air conditioning fan can cause wind interference. WindStop surrounds the microphone in an "acoustical controlled porosity barrier" to reduce the disruptive effects of wind noise, enabling clear conversations in adverse conditions. What's more, WindStop not only offers better wind-noise reduction than expensive DSP (digital signal processor) solutions, but also does so without adding weight, power consumption or expense. The Mobile Freedom Headset also includes noise-canceling technology, which works to keep background noises at bay in busy places such as airports, restaurants and playgrounds.

The Logitech Mobile Freedom Headset offers seven hours of continuous talk time and up to 300 hours of standby time. This means that the headset needs recharging only half as often as the mobile phone. The product includes a call/answer button located directly on the headset, so people can conduct calls without having to pick up the phone. The Logitech Mobile Freedom Headset also supports several features built into many handsets, such as voice dialing, three-way calling, and mute.

Along with the Logitech Mobile Freedom Headset, Logitech will release another Bluetooth headset this fall, the Logitech Mobile Pro Headset. The Logitech Mobile Pro Headset will also include Bluetooth 1.2 technology, improved quality of sound, and AFH (Adaptive Frequency Hopping) for less interference from other 2.4 GHz systems such as Wi-Fi. The Pro version offers up to eight hours of continuous talk time and more than three weeks of standby time. This headset will have fingertip controls to make it possible to call, answer and mute phone calls, as well as to control the volume level directly from the headset.
