Logitech is expanding its line of mobile phone headsets with the introduction of two new compact Bluetooth mobile phone headsets, the Logitech Mobile Traveller Headset cand the Logitech Mobile Express Headset (pictured, bottom). Both headsets feature a very small form factor and use the newer Bluetooth 1.2 technology, which includes Adaptive Frequency Hopping (AFH) technology to reduce interference. The Mobile Traveller headset also includes the company's patent-pending WindStop technology, to ensure clear conversations even in windy conditions.
The Mobile Traveller Headset features a compact design that is polished silver in color with chrome-colored accents. The headset weighs only 0.6 ounces. It features an over-ear design, with a cushioned ear pad that rests on the outer ear instead of inside it, and an over-ear soft rubber earpiece, which securely wraps around the ear. Logitech's flip clip design makes it quick and easy to flip the earpiece to fit either ear.
Besides being compact and comfortable, this headset also includes Logitech's patent-pending WindStop technology. The company says wind noise is a major problem for mobile phones, and the WindStop technology surrounds the microphone with an acoustical barrier to filter the effects of wind noise, enabling clear conversations in adverse conditions. Logitech says the WindStop not only offers wind-noise reduction that is superior to expensive DSP (digital signal processor) solutions, but does so without adding weight or reducing battery life.
The Mobile Traveller headset offers seven hours of continuous talk time and up to 300 hours of standby time. The product includes a call/answer button located directly on the headset, so people can conduct calls without having to pick up the handset. The Logitech Mobile Traveller Headset also supports several features built into many mobile phones, such as voice dialing, three-way calling, and mute. The Logitech Mobile Traveller Headset will be available in September in U.S. and European retail stores with a suggested U.S. retail price of US$79.99.
The Logitech Mobile Express Headset features a compact design at an entry-level price. The headset also weighs just 0.6 ounces. It provides a secure and comfortable fit with its adjustable wrap-around earpiece and small in-ear speaker. The headset can be worn on either the left or right ear. Smoke in color with silver accents, the headset features a call/answer button located directly on the side of the headset, so people can accept calls without having to pick up the handset.
The Logitech Mobile Express Headset offers four hours of continuous talk time and up to 110 hours of standby time. It also supports several features built into many mobile phones, such as voice dialing, three-way calling, and mute. The Logitech Mobile Express Headset will be available in October in U.S. and European retail stores with an introductory price of US$49.99.
