Logitech has announced two new wireless stereo headsets for mobile phones at the 2006 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
Each of these headsets allow people to both listen to digital stereo music and conduct phone calls on mobile music phones.
The Logitech Mobile Stereo Headset HS 200 and HS 210 models make it easy, with the push of a button, to switch from enjoying a favourite song to participating in a conference call.
Logitech has designed the new headsets specifically for the next-generation of music phones that feature Bluetooth wireless technology with the Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP). A2DP is an emerging standard for high-quality wireless stereo sound.
Logitech's new headsets include Logitech's WindStop technology for calls in windy conditions.
The Logitech Mobile Stereo headset comes in two different behind-the-head designs. The Mobile Stereo Headset HS 210 has square-shaped earpieces, with a microphone embedded in the right earpiece; the Mobile Stereo Headset HS 200 features round earpieces and a microphone mini-boom that extends slightly from the right earpiece.
Both are steel grey in colour with chrome accents. Each headset weighs 90 grams. The headsets include 40mm full-range neodymium drivers that produce rich stereo sound. While the rechargeable lithium ion batteries provide up to 10 hours of talk time, 8 hours of play time, and more than 300 hours of standby time.
Both models of the Logitech Mobile Stereo Headset will be available as an accessory for select mobile music phones later this spring. Each will have a suggested retail price of £99.99 in Europe.
