Leveraging Logitech’s deep audio expertise, the Zone series of headsets claim to deliver superior sound quality so users can take conference calls, listen to music, or block out distractions with active noise cancellation (ANC). As the first Logitech headsets that offer Qi wireless charging, Zone Wireless provides convenient charging at the user’s desk.
“Many professionals bring their own headphones to work, however they do not address the typical needs of an open office,” said Philippe Depallens, vice president and general manager of Logitech Audio. “Logitech Zone Wireless is designed with contemporary style, supreme comfort, and audio call clarity, as well as active noise cancellation and great sound quality for music, whenever and wherever you need it.”
With Active Noise Cancellation, it eliminates background noise so one can focus, regardless of the ambient noise level in the workplace. The soft leatherette ear pad material and silicone padded headband make it comfortable to wear all day, which complements up to 15 hours of available talk time and music. Users have up to a 30m/100ft range, as well as a noise-cancelling microphone for greater call clarity.
Designed for today’s mobile-first workstyle, the headset uses Easy-Switch technology to connect and switch easily between a mobile device and computer through Bluetooth or through a Bluetooth dongle. Once paired with the downloadable companion app, Logitech Tune, users can control the headset using the app, from activating the mute or ANC functions, to adjusting the sound equalizer for tuning the bass performance, as well as providing firmware upgrades.
Its interface claims to be easy to use while on calls or listening to music. One can push the main button in the center of the ear cup to answer/end calls or play/pause while listening to music. Users can also mute the headset by raising the microphone boom. At the end of the workday, simply fold it up and place it on a Qi wireless charger or connect it to the included USB cable for a slightly faster charge.
The headset is on display April 9-11 at the Google Cloud Next Conference in San Francisco.
Logitech Zone Wireless with Bluetooth is expected to be available in April 2019 for $199.99. Local pricing has not yet been announced.
