New Headset from Logitech Geared for Music

At the Consumer Electronics Show today Logitech announced two new Bluetooth-enabled wireless stereo headphones for mobile phones. The Logitech Mobile Stereo Headset HS 200 and HS 210 models will be available as accessories for select mobile music phones later this spring and are priced at $129.99.

The Logitech Mobile Stereo Headset, according to Logitech, allows people to listen to both stereo music and conduct phone calls on mobile music phones. The headset works specifically for the next-generation of music phones that feature Bluetooth wireless technology with the Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP), which is a newer standard for higher quality wireless stereo sound.

Features of the Logitech headsets include one touch switching between music and phone calls, a “wind stopping” technology which reduces the amount of wind noise picked up by the headset’s microphone, two different behind-the-head designs, 40mm full-range neodymium audio drivers and a rechargeable battery which offers up to 10 hours of talk time, eight hours of play time, and more than 300 hours of standby time.

“As telephony and entertainment converge on the mobile phone platform, people need one headset that gives them the flexibility to listen to their music, games or videos in stereo, and also make and take telephone calls,” said Jef Holove, director of product marketing, for Logitech’s Entertainment and Communications Business Unit. “To deliver that flexibility, these new headsets combine the very best of Logitech’s wireless and audio technologies. They provide excellent stereo sound and extremely clear phone calls, even in windy conditions. And without the cords, people can leave the phone in a pocket, a bag, or on the desk, and still listen and talk.”
