Wireless PC telecom/music headset coming from Logitech

Yesterday at the CeBIT electronics show in Germany, Logitech unveiled the company’s first wireless stereo headset designed for Internet calling with a PC. The Logitech ClearChat PC Wireless headset combines stereo audio with 2.4 GHz wireless technology, allowing people the freedom to move around when they make VoIP phone calls or listen to music from PCs.

The Logitech ClearChat PC Wireless enables people to move freely up to 33 feet from their computer. With the included USB transmitter, the headset connects to a PC or Mac computer right out of the box – no software or pairing required. And to help ensure no call gets interrupted, the headset’s 2.4 GHz wireless technology features uncompressed stereo audio and an advanced algorithm that minimizes interference – even in noisy wireless environments, such as airport or hotel, according to Logitech.

The manufacturer says that the ClearChat PC Wireless delivers rich, high-quality stereo audio through proprietary laser-tuned audio drivers. The headset features a noise-canceling microphone on a flexible boom that adjusts to the desired distance from the mouth. Additionally, volume and microphone mute controls are located on the right earpiece and the microphone automatically mutes when rotated to an upright position. As an added convenience, the microphone emits a soft, red glow when muted.

The headset features a padded headband and plush ear pads. The headset works with popular Internet calling applications, including Skype, Windows Live, Yahoo!, Google Talk and AIM.

In addition to Internet calling, the ClearChat PC Wireless headset provides high-performance audio and a comfortable design for listening to music, watching movies or playing games on the PC. The Logitech ClearChat is expected to be available in the in May for a suggested retail price of $99.99.
