Pros Work well.
Summary These headphones work as advertised. Good battery life. Good sound and build quality. But I found them uncomfortable to wear. The wires around the ears create pressure points that cause my ears to ache. And the wire around the neck hangs too low and causes the ear pieces to move around when I move my head.Updated
I just realized that there is a way to adjust these headphones so that they fit more comfortably. The wires over the ears can be rotated such that the wire in the back rides higher. This keeps the wire from touching your neck. It also lessens the pressure points behind the ears. Much better. I bump my rating to Very Good.
Pros Good sound quality, well mostly, and erm looks nice
Cons Unwearable for longer than an hour, seriously uncomfortable, high notes not reproduced, too much base
Summary Unwearable for longer than an hour, seriously uncomfortable, high notes not reproduced, too much base
I can only rate this 2 – I found these headsets seriously uncomfortable to wear, I’ve twiddled with the rubber hooks that hold these things onto your ears – true, some positions are slightly more comfortable than others, but no position was comfortable. I can only tolerate these for about an hour.
Not only can this design rest on your neck, if you wear a shirt collar it will constantly clip it as you move your head, try leaning your head forwards too, the headset will nearly be pulled from your ears. Horrible!
Why have Logitech screwed the design up on what is otherwise a decent sound
(apart from the base, which is way too much, the higher notes are not reproduced) There are many behind the head designs which are so comfortable to wear; I hope Logitech will give serious consideration to a redesign.
If you are going to buy these, make sure you try them on first if you can. If you can’t them try to make sure the place where you buy them have a liberal returns policy!Updated
Testing on a wider range of music... Depending on the music being played, high notes will be reproduced, but the bass is overdone where bass appears...
I move this up to a 4 - a technically competent product let down by a poor wrap round band design
Pros light weight, simple controls, very easy to setup & use
Cons uncomfortable, won't work with many MP3 player cases & covers
Summary Over all the sound is very clear and the sound quality is good. The price is very reasonable and the setup was extremely simple. The range is easily 30 feet if there are no obstructions. But they can be uncomfortable...sometimes very uncomfortable.
As some have noted, these aren't as loud as most other headphones. But I think they are loud enough for most users.
I used these with my iPod Nano, my older iRiver MP3 player, my laptop and my desktop PC with no technical issues at all.
These headphones are good but they could have been great with just a few simple changes (Logitech, I hope you're listening)
- Comfort -
Logitech choose to use these strange rubber loops to hook the headphones on your ears. If you hang them wrong they can be very very uncomfortable. Even if you hang them right I would not call them comfortable. But I shouldn't have to think about how I hang my headphones.
I actually prefer the behind the head design because it doesn't mess up my hair. I have 2 other pair of wired, behind the head headphones. And they are both much more comfortable than the Logitech headphones.
- LEDs in the wrong location
The LEDs on the headphones and on the transmitter are on or right next to the button you have to press. In a couple situations, you have to hold the button for a few seconds and wait for the LED to turn on or flash. Well, your finger is covering the LED, so you can't see it flashing.
- Covers & Cases
The transmitter works fine with my iPod Nano and my simple scratch resistant cover. But it will not work with my iPod arm band (not even close). I imagine there are many covers and cases for iPods and other MP3 players that won't work with the transmitter attached.
- iPod adapters
The iPod adapters that allowed the transmitter to have a snug fit specific to my iPod was great...with my iPod. But to move it from my iPod to my laptop the adaptor got in the way a little. Not a major issue but still an issue. I imagine I would have a similar issues going from iPod to airplane arm for in flight movies. A slight adjustment to make the adaptor easier to remove might help.
- Behind the head vs. over the head
Most people prefer the over the head design for headphones. So, why not offer both versions?
Pros Sound quality, weight, Being Wireless!
Cons Distance, battery life, silicone ear holder things
Summary Sound quality is absolutly stunning. The weight compared to the older model leaves you stunned.The peices that hold your ear in are silicone, and that takes a little bit to get used to. The wireless part is awesome, just dont drift more than a wall away, or you'll lose reception. That is where the older model is better. Both the headphones and the base station are extremly lightweight, unlike the older ones. The headphone band is surrounded with a silicone covering, and inside of that is the carbon steel headband. The controls are a little bit awkward to get used to, i'm used to the older pair, but I got used to the controls quick. It has a nice pause switch kinda. If you press the connect button, it mutes the music to you're headphones, not the mp3 player itself. If you dont own an ipod, the adaptors will be annoying. Take one that will look right on your music player and take pilers and break off the little plastic nub things. The headphones are able to be played with after only about 30 min of charging or so, but not for long. Charges take at least 4 hours for the first charge i'm presuming. There is no portable charger for these which sucks, and I really dont suggest chopping the adaptor up so you can make one. The battery life is only minor, a 2 hour difference with the old ones, but I got the old ones to play for almost 10 instead of 8!! These only have a supposed 6 hour battery life, but to make it longer, just turn it down. These headphones are perfect for just haveing the music player in a bag or somthing, just make sure it doesnt go far. I rate these headphones 9 out of 10 for the reasons above, and because of Logitech's quick response to my older pair breaking. I would reccomend these headphones to anyone who wants to stand out too!
"TERRIBLE!!!!"on by kechou1
Pros worked for 1 month
Cons VERY UNCOMFORTABLE, Doesnt PAIR PROPERLY
Summary Got them for a total of 1 month, at first i loved them the sound is veyr good and the range is quite good, i noticed they are very uncomfortable but i figured who cares i'll just live with it. then one day it just stopped pairing,
I called logitech the service was terrible, they wanted a proof of receipt, but I got it as a present and I'm not gonna go back and ask for the receipt and plus she probably threw it away. So now I'm just gonna ship it back to them and see how it goes. In the meantime i gotta go back and buy wired headphones which I gave away b/c i thought i'd never need again. These are TERRIBLE . Do not buy.
