Great for Online College Courses!
Posted by: celiamarie from: Pittsburgh, PA on
I didn’t think I needed a pair of wireless headphones. After using these for a month, I really don’t want to go without them.
I take online college courses and am often up late at night doing coursework which contains both audio and video. This means I have to use ear buds or headphones so I don’t wake my family. I was using wired ear buds, which are a pain when you have to get up to go get a book or whatever. Using these wireless headphones really eliminates that tethered feeling. They are lightweight and comfortable, and the sound is great. I’m not an audiophile, but I also am using these to listen to my mp3’s and have been pleasantly surprised by how great the music sounds.
What I really like about these headphones:
The feeling of freedom when I’m using my laptop – can get up and down without unplugging (or forgetting I’m plugged in and inadvertently dragging my laptop to the floor by the earbud wires when I stand up). Freedom.
Comfort. They are lightweight and the ear pads are soft and comfortable. They are adjustable and conform easily to my head size and shape.
Volume controls on the right side. After using them for a while, I’m now automatically touching the + or minus signs at “12 o’clock” and “6 o’clock” on the right earphone to control volume. There’s also a pause control at “3 o’clock” (this works for audio only).
Setup was incredibly easy. As usual, I did not read instructions. There’s a tiny USB wireless transmitter that plugs into a USB slot on your computer/laptop/tablet. Once that’s in, turn on the headphones (controls are a bit confusing when turning on the power for Bluetooth or Wireless, but figured that out by trial and error). I use Windows 7, and my laptop found and installed the driver for the headphones in under a minute. (You can further configure the headphones and microphone in the Control Panel of Windows, but I found no need to change any settings.)
Battery life seems to be very good. I’ve only recharged twice, and recharging is easy. The headphones come with their own USB-computer cable for charging.
What I didn’t like:
Nothing, really. I’m surprised by how much I’ve been using and enjoying these headphones.
The USB transmitter fits into a tiny slot under the cap on the left earphone. Ingenious. The headphones fold into a very small compact shape. I’ve tucked them into my laptop case or backpack when traveling. Very convenient feature!
Microphone – I do not Skype or video chat (as of yet). However, just to practice with the mike, I used the Windows 7 Speech Recognition Tutorial. The microphone was sensitive and picked up my voice without any problems. I practiced dictating a document, and it worked splendidly. (I also learned quite a lot about speech recognition and may start to use this for writing papers).
Features I haven’t used yet:
Bluetooth. Ihave no need for that function at the moment.
I’ve found that I don’t want to do any more online coursework without these headphones. They’re my favorite accessory for my laptop these days. They are solidly made, aesthetically pleasing, sleek, very lightweight, and have a great feature set. I’d recommend them to a friend, without a doubt!

Perfect for dictation; good for wireless music
Posted by: Blackbirdpix from: Atlanta, GA on
I’ve been using the Logitech wireless headset for about two weeks now, and have found them to be comfortable, lightweight and useful, with a reasonable battery life.
I primarily use this headset with Dragon Express and Dragon Dictate, software that enables you to dictate into your computer. I am dictating this entire review using the Logitech headset. I have tried using other headsets for dictation, including more expensive ones from Logitech and Turtle Beach, but have found the H800 to be the optimal solution given its light weight, its USB connectivity (a necessity with Dragon) and its ease of use.
Once you’ve removed the headset from its packaging (no mean trick), set up is easy and straightforward. Charging is done through a cable that attaches to your computer, and takes about three hours initially. Over the course of the past two weeks, I’ve found that the headset charge lasts approximately six hours after charging for about two hours. You can also charge the headset from a power outlet using an adapter from one of your other devices. I charge mine with an adapter that was designed for my Bose iPhone headset.
The Logitech H800 offers the choice of USB or Bluetooth wireless connectivity. Bluetooth works great with my iPad and iPhone, but when connecting to my MacBook Pro I prefer to use USB. The USB dongle is a small-profile dongle that doesn’t get in the way when I leave it in the Mac and place the computer in my briefcase.
Sound quality is fine, given the limitations imposed by the cost of the headset. Do they sound as good as a pair of Bose noise canceling headphones? Of course not. However, they are perfectly adequate for listening to music or audio books at a cost that is roughly one-third of the Bose. Plus they are wireless with a 40-foot range, whereas the Bose has a six-foot cord. In electronics, there are always tradeoffs, and I appreciate the convenience of being able to get up from my computer and go into another room with an uninterrupted signal.
Dragon Express requires a USB connection as the Bluetooth signal is not sufficiently robust to power the software. In two weeks of using the H800 with Dragon Express, I have not seen a single incident where the microphone failed to pick up my speech. The noise-canceling function appeared to work quite well. The mic also folds out of the way inside the right ear cup, which is convenient when you’re just listening to music.
Another factor you should consider before purchasing is the construction of the ear pads. The Logitech H800 uses flat, foam covered ear pads, which can get a little warm since they lay flat against your ears. I haven’t found this to be an issue – it’s just different from headsets that feature sculpted ear cups such as the Bose noise-canceling headset or the (much more expensive) Logitech G35s. For increased comfort, there’s also a piece of foam where the headset band rests against the top of your head.
The headset offers a set of controls (volume, skip/fast forward/backward, volume and mute) built into the exterior of the right side ear cup. These worked fine, but as a practical matter I typically relied more on the controls on my computer than I did on those that are built into the headset.
Since I’m a writer, and I rely on dictation software, this headset is on my head roughly 2 hours a day. Given the H800’s adjustability and padding, I have not experienced any discomfort, which is a key consideration when purchasing headsets. I’ve also found the speech recognition capabilities of the headset to be exceptional, and they are perfectly fine for listening to music or audio books. For the money, I haven’t seen anything that fits my needs better. Bluetooth connectivity is a plus when using my iPhone or iPad, and the headset seems to hold a reasonable charge. I would primarily recommend to anyone using dictation software and would also recommend to someone who wants the freedom of a USB or Bluetooth wireless connection when listening to music.

Great sound was good surprise!
Posted by: hppy from: Norhern VA on
I needed some wirelss headphones for an Ipad 2. I had been using wired headphones, but the wires were in the way and I was tethered to the Ipad when listening to music. I had some trouble with the initial synching of the bluetooth to the Ipad. The headphones were not automaticaly recognized by the Ipad via bluetooth, but after reading ALL the instructions, I found the sequence of buttons to push on the headphones to put them in discovery mode -- not an intuitive method and not described on page 1. Once synched, they sounded great -- clear sound - music and movies sound good as well -- good bass sound too. Battery life has been good as well. I don't have a good measure for that yet, but I use them couples hours a day several days a week and I have not replaced the battery for several weeks. Folding mechanism is great, but I am a little concerned with the plastic used and wish they had a hard case for travel. All in all - good product. 4 stars becuase I think they are little expensive - so look for a sale, and they need a hard case for travel.

Good for most things, but lacking in others
Posted by: Khena from: Nashville, TN on
I really wanted a pair of headphones/microphone that could do it all and work with everything. What it does, it does very well, but it's lacking on some front.
Seem a bit flimsy. Very light, and ear pads are not the thickest or highest quality. It seems like they could break pretty easily, but so far, so good. The microphone is made of rubber, and that part is good, so I can move it around without breaking it.
Actually, it was surprisingly good. Let's not get crazy here, these are not audiophile quality headphones by any means, but they sounded better than I expected. Microphone also sounded good and picked my voice up loud. Used with both USB and Bluetooth, and didn't have any issues with clicking others have reported. Maybe I lucked out, or maybe they fixed it. Can't be sure.
The flimsy aspect actually comes in handy here. They are very light and very comfortable. Wish the ear padding was a bit thicker, but I guess I can always replace that if I'm going to wear them for 8 hours at a time (which I could when playing my PS3 :-)
This is where it's really hit or miss. On the PS3, it ONLY SENDS OUT VOICE INFORMATION. You will NOT get game music or sound effects through these headphones. I tried using both the USB and Bluetooth on PS3, and both worked well, but only for voice/chat.
Bluetooth was not seen by my iPad or iPhone at all. Tried both to no avail. HUGE disappointment, as I was hoping to use it for Skype on my iPad.
On PC and Laptop, it worked great!
Overall, for the price, not bad at all. Wish it worked on iPad and that I could get game sound from my PS3, but I think that's a PS3 limitation, not the headphones, as I have yet to find one that does.

Great Headset (over Bluetooth)
Posted by: Bear64501 from: Kansas City, MO on
To tell you the truth a pair of wireless headphones was the last thing I want, I had no need for them… That being said… I was wrong.
These Things are great! I use them a lot more than I ever expected.
The good (great things) about them:
Sound quality (over Bluetooth): I think these things sound great. From reading other reviews I had read that the sound quality was not the best for this kind of music or that kind of music, so I tried it on a few different types. So I synced it to my iPod’s Bluetooth, and I first tried it out on some quieter acoustic things, listening to some Avett Brothers… no complaints. Some complaints came up about hissing in other reviews, but nothing there. I tested it a little further with something more complex: Kanye West’s “Gone”… The song switches between bass, quiet pianos, deep strings, high strings, etc… all sounded great. Sure the bass was not as rich as what it would be on a pair of Skullcandy Aviators, or Beats, but Logitech does not claim it will be as rich. I will warn that all my music is streamed through Spotify, so it is not CD quality, but when comparing the exact same audio coming through multiple devices (headphones, car radio, surround sound) the headphones are just as good if not better.
Sound is also great with speech. Listening to audiobooks, podcasts, even phone calls… all good quality.
Range: The box quotes about a 40-foot range; I must say I can agree with this. It was great being able to leave my phone in the bedroom and walk around the house with out the fear of a wire catching something while doing housework, or dipping into dishwater. I even walked outside in heavy Missouri winter winds, the headset lost connection, but when I entered my concrete basement it re-connected, and started right where it left off, with just as good of quality as when I was sitting right next to the iPod.
Comfort: With thick padding on the ears and headband the headphones were some of the most comfortable I have tried yet.
Portability: These things fold up just small enough to fit into a coat pocket (Shown below). The Battery lasts for some time, it does have to charge through a USB, which seems like it would be a pain, but it is few and far between needing a charge.
Mic: I do not use the mic often, so it is nice that it folds up to be flush with the band, so when wearing them on the streets it doesn’t look like you are wearing a lame pair of computer headphones, but when the mic is needed it folds down and bends back and forth from the mouth with its flexible attachment.
Ease of use: Easy to setup, nice large buttons, which are glove friendly for the winter.
The not so good:
Sound quality (over wireless receiver): The 2.4GHz does not carry the best sound with it. Maybe would be good for chatting, but any quality from music or game sound effects are lost. (So maybe get a Bluetooth dongle if you want to use it with a computer that does not have Bluetooth built in, seen below)
Would have also been nice to have the option to plug in a 3.5mm jack in if you wanted to use them wired, for even better sound (like on the Beats design)
Durability: Made of plastic, does not seem super durable. Only time will tell.
Noise Isolation: Good sound, but that person you’re sitting next to on the plane will be able to hear it just a well as you can. No private conversations here.
With the amount that I wrote on the good rather than the bad, I hope that it is conveyed that I really enjoyed these headphones. Though they had some flaws they are some of the most practical ones I have tried yet, in my long line of failed headphone solutions.

Excellent sound quality and comfort
Posted by: LillyBee from: Illinois on
It is very comfortable. With soft cushions for the ears and the top of your head, it does not pinch my ears or cause pain of any type. Lightweight yet durable. Holds a charge for a several hours. It gives a beep to let you know to plug it in. It comes with a long cord and you can use it while charging. The sound quality is excellent, and the noise cancelation works great. The microphone is small and tucks up out of the way when not needed. It is also flexible so you can adjust it if needed.
The only thing about this product I would like is to be able to have it set to Bluetooth (so I can use it on my phone) while still having it as an outut device on my computer.
5 stars Fantastic product.

I must admit, I am the kind of person whom, when a new technology first comes out, I am camped out in front of Best Buy for 3 days before the release date so that I can be the first to have it. When Bluetooth technology first came out, I of course ran out and bought the first pair of Bluetooth headphones out there.
They sucked, plain & simple.
I must say, Bluetooth technology has improved by leaps and bounds in the past 5 or so years, especially in the audio realm.
Logitech has hit a home run with the H800. This is yet one more product made by Logitech that I have yet to find a con in.
The best feature of the H800 I would have to say is the fact that it is a full featured Bluetooth headset, mic included. When I first took it out of the box, I tried it out with my MacBook. I switched it to Bluetooth connectivity, paired it with my MacBook, and listened to a few songs in iTunes, the sound quality was nothing short of spectacular!
The next thing I did was tried out the headsets mic function. I first tried it out with my computers speech function. It clearly hears my commands, and not once did I have to repeat myself when using it for speech to text.
The next thing I did to test the mic and the headphones at the same time, was placed an iChat call. The recipient stated that my voice was clear, not garbled, echoed, or distorted in any way, as it sometimes can be with my MacBooks built-in mic.
One thing I almost didn't notice, is that I was even wearing headphones. I own a pair of the Motorola Bluetooth headphones that wrap around the ears and behind the head (I use them only for working out and biking). These headphones are EXTREMELY comfortable, something that I have not found common in the Bluetooth headphone world. Thanks to the thick padding on both ears and on the top of the head, you can wear the headphones 18 hours a day and not have a single sore spot. That's definitely a selling point when it comes to headphones, comfort.
Another feature of the H800 that I have found absolutely invaluable, is the fact that this headset has both Bluetooth connectivity as well as the Logitech wireless receiver (with on-board storage in one side of the headset) for computers that do not have Bluetooth receivers. This is great when using the headset with my desktop or my Windows laptop that doesn't have Bluetooth on it. This was an amazing design aspect on the part of Logitech!!
The on-board storage for the Logitech wireless receiver is really a great feature of the H800. One thing I absolutely cannot stand is having to throw away a perfectly good wireless device because I've lost the receiver. I commute to downtown Chicago for work, that's a long long journey 5-6 days a week, anything can happen between my front door and my office, so the on-board receiver storage with a locking cover is a very important feature for me.
The only thing I had a problem with these headphone was with my Mac. My computer went to sleep, and when I woke it up, the sound on the headphone was completely messed up. All I had to do was turn the headphones off and re-pair them with the Mac, but I'm imagining this is something that might possibly be fixed by a Mac update, and it's definitely not a deal breaker considering the extremely reasonable price and the amazing quality of the product.
Congrats Logitech, you've come out with one kick a** pair of headphones!!

Extremely long battery life, I can sit in a virtual training classroom for work for 4 hours, go to lunch for 45 minutes and let it charge, come back for another 4 hours and then after that game online with it for several hours without ever even getting a low battery warning.
This headset is VERY comfortable as well. I have a large head, and headsets tend to squeeze my ears into the side of my head, and eventually it starts to hurt. These are a dream to wear all day.
They do not obnoxiously cancel out every other sound in the room, I dont feel like I'm wearing a space helmet the way the sound gets distorted from some of the other noise canceling headsets.
Good range, I can walk around the room with no static or signal loss. Signal starts to break a little as I go about 20ft away, or go downstairs.

Well, I got this head set because I wanted to try the wireless and also because the old wired logitech A00008, which still good and working but the ear plastic things are pealing off and it leaves my ears with those things :) . Anyway, this wireless head set was easy to install, but when you turn the head set off if does not make the speakers on. Meaning you have to manually do it every time, which is annoying. The sound is pretty good. The only big problem, is that now a week later when I am playing I get an interference with the sound and then it turns off . It was not doing that before, not sure if this head set is defective so going to the best buy store to get me a different one. I think this time I will go for the wire one. Also the battery does not last, I have to connect it while playing so it gets charge. Conclusion, If you are a normal user, that listens to music and stuff like that, is great. But if you are a PC gamer, I think you will be a little disappointed. Good luck , and thanks for reading.

This is my 2nd head set as the first one I purchased you could not use while it is charging. With this one you can use it while charging and the USB cable that comes with it is long enough that it is not to bad.
Have had clients mention the quality is not the best as some times it is not clear and I have to repeat my self. (This could be network related however as well) so....
