New Logitech Headsets Deliver Crystal Clear Audio
Logitech USB Headset H530, Logitech Laptop Headset H555 Feature Support for Super Wideband Audio
SLOUGH, England — July 1, 2010 — Bringing crystal-clear audio for your Internet and video calls, music and movies, Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) today announced two new headsets. Featuring support for super wideband audio, the Logitech® USB Headset H530 and the Logitech® Laptop Headset H555 sound so clear it’s almost like you’re in the same room as the people you call. The lightweight Laptop Headset H555 folds flat and easily fits into the included case. The USB Headset H530 offers laser-tuned drivers for exceptional audio quality. Both headsets are compatible with Logitech Vid™ HD, Skype™ 4.0 for Windows® or later, and Skype 2.8 for Mac® or later.
“We’ve learned from customers that better quality audio is one the most important factors in selecting which headset is right for them,” said Yehia Oweiss, Logitech Regional Director, UK & Ireland. “By supporting super wideband audio, the new Logitech headsets H555 and H530 help make your Internet and video calls sound crystal clear.”
Super wideband audio — developed by Skype® — helps make your voice more natural by transmitting sound on a large frequency range. Plus, super wideband audio uses less bandwidth and can even adjust in real time when there is more traffic on the network.
Logitech USB Headset H530
The Logitech USB Headset H530 makes it easy for you to hear the details. Laser-tuned drivers and a pure digital USB connection provide clear audio for voice and video calls, as well as music, movies, and games.
On-ear audio controls allow you to optimize your audio, whether you’re talking, listening to music or playing games. A padded foam headband and cushioned ear cups give you a comfortable fit.
Logitech Laptop Headset H555
The Logitech Laptop Headset H555 delivers pure digital sound, on the go. The behind-the-head design with adjustable ear pieces keeps you comfortable with a lightweight, personalized fit.
A USB connection means you’ll enjoy pure digital audio in stereo — perfect for Internet calls, music, movies and games.
Both new Logitech headsets offer a noise-cancelling microphone, which reduces annoying background noise and rotates out of the way when you’re not using it.
Pricing and Availability
The Logitech Laptop Headset H555 is expected to be available in July for £49.99 inc VAT. The Logitech USB Headset H530 is expected to be available in July for £39.99 inc VAT.
