Logitech announced a new family of corded mobile phone headsets, the Logitech EasyFit Mobile headsets, a product line consisting of nine separate phone connectors and five different earpieces, enabling people to mix and match a headset specifically designed for individual phones and earpiece preferences.
Logitech consumer research discovered that many mobile phone users have difficulty finding a headset that fits both their phone and their ear. Logitech EasyFit Mobile headsets solve this problem by splitting up the traditional retail package that combines connector and earpiece. With the Logitech EasyFit Mobile headset, the phone connector and the earpiece are packaged and purchased separately, so people can quickly and easily find the appropriate connector for their phone, while choosing the headset design that best fits their ear and their personal preference.
The Logitech EasyFit mobile headset family includes three over-ear earpieces in black, white and blue, as well as an earbud and earbud boom. Both earbud headsets feature the Logitech FlexLoop earpiece fittings, multiple size fittings for small, medium and large ears, which fit comfortably over the ear canal, not in it. The Logitech EasyFit Over-Ear headsets and the Logitech EasyFit Earbud include a call/answer button and an inline omni-directional microphone, while the Logitech EasyFit Boom headset has a call/answer button and a powerful noise-canceling boom microphone for superior audio quality.
The nine separate mobile phone connectors available for the Logitech EasyFit headsets currently support virtually all mobile phones on the market today. The list includes Audiovox, Kyocera, LG, Mitsubishi, Motorola, Nokia, Oki, Panasonic, Qualcomm, Samsung, Sanyo, Siemens, Sony Ericsson and Toshiba. Four of these connectors also have retractor options, including the universal 2.5mm, Nokia HDC5, Nokia Pop Port and Sony Ericsson.
The Logitech EasyFit headsets will be available in October throughout U.S. and European and retail stores and online. The EasyFit Over-Ear White, EasyFit Over-Ear Black, EasyFit Over-Ear Blue, and EasyFit Earbud all have a U.S. suggested retail price of US$14.99, while the suggested retail price of the EasyFit Boom Headset is US$19.99. The standard EasyFit connectors have a suggested U.S. retail price of US$4.99 and the retractable connectors have a suggested retail price of US$9.99.
