"Good headphones but rated below average due to poor comfort"2.0 starson by jdlove18
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?
