Logitech Zone Wireless is a wireless on-ear headset made by Logitech, primarily designed for work. I got the Microsoft Teams variant of the headset, which has features that integrate it closer with the Teams app.
- The headset comes with its own USB-A receiver. This is just great since I do not need to bother with Bluetooth pairing. I just turn on the headset and it instantly is connected to my computer. Neither do I need to worry that my computer might not have a Bluetooth receiver with the latest profile, everything just works.
- The headset has a boom mic, which can be flipped down to my mouth or flipped back to rest on the headset. In Microsoft Teams, this flipping automatically unmutes or mutes the mic. I find this super convenient in work meetings.
- With a kid and a baby in our home, having a boom mic was important for me. The boom mic mostly eliminates all the background noise when I am speaking so my audience only hears a clear voice. When combined with the noise suppression in Microsoft Teams, this works to eliminate most of the noise. The boom is short, I think a longer boom (like in my simple Logitech H390 USB headset) would have further reduced the background noise and isolated my voice.
- The audio quality in the speakers is fine for work calls and passable for music. If you want to enjoy your music, this is definitely not enough.
- This headset is on-ear, so the cups rest on the ears. This was super uncomfortable for me, after being spoilt by the luxurious comfort of my Bose Soundlink AE2 headphones. Also, not sure what materials they use for the cups because it made my ears super hot. The solution that partly fixed these problems was to wear the headset a little lower - so my ears got to breathe and also the headset was no longer snug.
- The headset barely sits on my ears - any heavy shaking of my head and unseat them. You can forget about wearing this for a brisk walk or a gentle jog - out of the question.
- The buttons on this headset are the worst I have ever used. The biggest culprit is the power button - it can barely be found with my fingers (while I am wearing the headset) and has the worst action I have ever seen in a button! It takes like 2-3 presses for me to finally power on or power off this headset.
- The build quality is passable, strictly made for work and not comfort. The metal parts feel harshly hard (why use metal?) and the softer parts feel cheap.
- By installing the LogiTune application, I am able to see the battery level of the headset, configure the voice prompts and configure what the various buttons do.
