Logitech mobile phone headsets - Mobile Accessories Logitech mobile phone headsets

18 February 2003
Written By Kinny Cheng

It’s not a name that you would ever think of hearing in the mobile phone arena. But Logitech, the renowned manufacturer of computing peripherals, has recently released a range of personal handsfree products for mobile phones which I believe will intrigue some people.

Branded as the Logitech Mobile series of headsets, there’s virtually a design for any practical application - from having an el-cheapo type headset (Mobile Earbud), to one that does a bit more (Mobile Earbud Premium), and to those that offer some kind of convenience and practicality (Mobile Earbud Retractable and Mobile Over Ear Blue).

But before I get into the review, let me just say that Logitech has done a good job in offering an array of differently-styled headsets, providing choice in what the end user finds as being comfortable for them personally. Given the shocking variety that manufacturers offer, it is no wonder why most of us perceive a headset as being simply a single ear bud with a dangling microphone!

Practicality and styling

A common design element of the three ear bud type headsets offered in the Logitech range is the use of an alternate design or method for the ear bud to remain inside the ear. Traditionally, one would have to nudge the little earpiece into the ear until it felt right and wouldn’t pop out on any sudden movements made. And who can forget about that little piece of soft foam which encases the ear bud!

So what’s different about Logitech’s design? Firstly, if you haven’t noticed from the pictures (right), these headsets make use of something called FlexLoop, a soft rubber attachment which holds the earpiece in place when placed in the ear. In each of the personal handsfree sales packages, there are four FlexLoop attachments of different sizes included. As we all have differently shaped and sized ears, and ways of wearing an earpiece headset, this is the reason why four of these were included.

When compared to the traditional earpiece, the Logitech FlexLoop wins at providing the best comfort and reliability in “staying put”. This is achieved by the FlexLoop attachment affixing itself against the walls of your outer ear’s soft bone instead of sitting right at the opening of the ear canal. Another benefit that I found while using the FlexLoop was the ease of wearing the actual earpiece and not having to worry about it falling out of its rightful place.

Although you may find that these headsets tend to be slightly away from the ear’s opening, sound quality and clarity was never sacrificed in any environment - whether it be a quiet room or driving with the window down.

The Logitech headsets use a soft colour scheme for their designs, with the exception of the “Mobile Earbud” product which is simply black in colour (alike standard headsets). A light silver and blue colour combination is used for the Premium and Retractable models, encased in a soft plastic that feels smooth on touch. The “Over Ear Blue” model uses the same materials, but consists of a light blue colour scheme only. For all of these products, I found them to have the utmost of quality.
