Logitech ClearChat PC Wireless

Stereo headsets are becoming an essential part of any modern PC and, like keyboard and mice before them, they are finally going wireless. The freedom that a wireless headset provides will appeal to anyone, but with so many 2.4GHz wireless devices in every home, can a wireless headset really match the performance, clarity and comfort of its wired counterparts? Benchmark Reviews examines an impressive entry, the Logitech ClearChat PC Wireless Headset 981-000068, and finds out.

For casual users and hardcore gamers alike, headsets are becoming some of the most heavily used peripherals on any PC. Voice chat is a standard feature for any instant messaging client, Ventrilo and Teamspeak are a staple of online gaming and Skype is quickly becoming a preferred choice for many users making long distance calls. However, unlike almost every other peripheral on the PC these days, most headsets are still wired. The options are very limited for demanding, nomadic computer users. Bluetooth headsets designed for cell phones can work on a PC (provided your machine has a bluetooth adapter), but they are designed strictly for voice chat and have limited range, without delivering the high-quality stereo sound of a wired headset. The Logitech ClearChat PC Wireless is designed to be the best of both worlds, providing high-quality stereo sound, a noise canceling microphone and wireless freedom, albeit at a fairly hefty MSRP of $99.99.

While the ClearChat Wireless is a winning combination on paper, the design leads to some big questions: Will the battery life be sufficient for demanding users? Can a wireless connection deliver the same quality of sound as its wired counterparts? Let's find out.

About LogitechLogitech

Focused on innovation and quality, Logitech designs personal peripherals to help people enjoy a better experience with the digital world. We started in 1981 with mice, which (new at the time) provided a more intuitive way of interacting with a personal computer. We became the worldwide leader in computer mice, and have reinvented the mouse in dozens of ways to match the evolving needs of PC and laptop users.

Since those early days, we have expanded our expertise in product design beyond the computer mouse, with a broad portfolio of interface devices that are the "last inch" between you and your computer or your console game, digital music or home-entertainment system.

With products sold in almost every country in the world, Logitech's leadership in innovation now encompasses a wide variety of personal peripherals (both cordless and corded), with special emphasis on products for PC navigation, gaming, Internet communications, digital music and home-entertainment control.

For each of our product categories, we study how our customers use their digital devices, and then our designers and engineers set their sights on how we can create a better experience with those devices - richer, more comfortable, more fun, more productive, more convenient, more delightful.

How well does the the Logitech ClearChat PC Wireless Headset 981-000068 work with various talk to text programs. Are there other less expensive wireless system out there that do as good or better then this new system from Logitech when it comes to feeding talk to text programs. And how about the effectiveness of some of the over the ear systems such as Plantronics Voyager 520 and others

Hello Bill:
This isn't usually something that the microphone has any impact on, and the software will normally determine how well it works.
