Logitech has introduced some new wireless (and wired) earbuds with some unique features for business people. The key product is the Zone True Wireless Earbuds, which the company says will be the first to be certified by the three major video conferencing platforms: Zoom, Google Meet, and Microsoft Teams. Another unique feature is support not only for Bluetooth, but also for Logitech’s wireless USB receiver, so they work with almost any smartphone or computer – and you can easily switch between devices.
The wireless headphones come with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and a noise-canceling microphone, which Logitech says allows for high quality sound on calls. And unlike bulky wireless headsets designed for businesses (like Logitech’s proprietary Zone models), they’re designed to “look stylish” during Zoom or other conference calls. Logitech also promises to “double the battery life of leading consumer devices,” though that’s a meaningless proposition with no number to back it up.
“Current wireless solutions are forcing consumers to compromise between traditional headsets, which are aesthetically unsuitable for video calling, or sub-optimal audio performance,” said Logitech VP Scott Wharton. The audio quality still needs to be heard and checked, of course, but they definitely look nicer than most business headsets.
In addition to the Zone True Wireless model, Logitech also introduced the Zone Wired Earbuds “for professionals and teams who want a professional plug-and-play option”. They can be connected to your computer or mobile device using USB-C, USB-A and 3.5mm ports.
The Zone True Wireless Earbuds will come in two colors, graphite and rose, but not cheap at $ 299. Zone wired earbuds, on the other hand, cost $ 99. Both will arrive worldwide in autumn 2021.
