    Great starter headset, better than bluetooth!

    Before buying this headset, one of the ways I chatted wirelessly on my PC was by using a bluetooth headset. Doing so this way had many downsides such as software had to be installed on the PC to use bluetooth although now with Win 8 pairing is much easier with the integrated protocol and bluetooth module on many newer notebooks. Sound quality was also much inferior over bluetooth and that headset picked up every little sound made especially typing sounds. The difference from the bluetooth headset to this one can best be described as going from AM to FM in both incoming and outgoing audio. I don't entirely blame the bluetooth headset for low audio quality. It mostly has to do with the Hands-free protocol of bluetooth that has a lower fidelity. Hopefully the advances with Android 5.0 Lolipop will allow usb headsets like these to co-exist and be used for higher quality phone calls. This headset can be said to be leaps and bounds better and while there's still room for improvement, its to be expected on an entry level headset but still holds out on its own. Design is simple, all the buttons electronics, mic, and battery with the micro-usb port are located on the right ear cup while the left ear cup is just the sound driver and a slot for storing the usb receiver. This receiver is proprietary due to the audio components and is not compatible with the unifying receivers made for other Logitech mice and keyboards so its best to not lose this. Lightweight feel although if enough care is taken it should last long enough until something better comes around. Increasing the volume is done with a button on the 12 o'clock position of a blue circle on the outer right ear cup. Conversely, lowering the volume is done by pressing a button on the 6 0'clock position. Muting outgoing microphone audio is done with a button on the 7 o'clock position. Volume level at maximum position may also not be as high as it should depending on what the other party is using as audio equipment and if the person is soft-spoken. Since this is an on-ear headset the sound isolation is close to none which may be a good or bad thing depending on the environment this will be used in. This is something the purchaser has to decide for themselves otherwise there are other headset options that will serve a more noisy environment better. Setup is as simple as plugging the receiver in although pairing may be necessary. This is done with a program downloaded from Logitech's website. On the headset one would hold the microphone mute and volume up buttons until the LED light flashes rapidly. One interesting aspect is during pairing this will actually show as a bluetooth headset on phones. Unfortunately this headset only appears as a stereo headphone and the microphone can't be used when paired as a bluetooth device. Incoming audio quality is nothing to rave about. Its fine to have as some background music playing in the office or the occasional podcast but it won't provide an immersive music listening experience. For voice communications its still much better than the old bluetooth headset. The microphone boom is small and rotates out 90 degrees from the right ear cup although it won't rotate the other way if one prefers to wear the microphone on the left side. Fortunately the microphone boom is shorter than traditional telephone headsets so its not as obtrusive. For me it rests on the cheek 1 inch away from the mouth. The tip of the mic is rigid although there is a flexible portion that allows the boom to bend left and right but not up or down. The range is about the same as the bluetooth headset I used although a usb extension cable can be used to place the transceiver up on a wall for a less obscured signal path compared to a usb port on a PC laying on the ground. Battery is rated at 5 hours so while it won't last one full day, it can be used while charging or be charged during off times such as lunch and be ready to go. Only a charging cable is provided although for quicker charging its best to use a power adapter made for a tablet or mobile phone with more output amps than a computer can provide. Overall I think this headset is a worthy contender to begin with although I did purchase it at a price lower than the msrp that its typically sold at so some of the shortcomings may have been easier to overlook for me.

    Excellent Wireless For The Price

    I love wireless headsets, but until I stumbled across this set, the cheapest I could find was a behind-the-neck Logitech which broke less than a week after I bought it. Granted, I have a larger head than most people... I found this pair on sale in my local Best Buy after my roommate's old headset stopped working from a broken wire in the cord. For the price, I just couldn't pass this up. I was a little worried about using two of these in the same room because of interference issues, but it turned out I had nothing to fear. To be sure, I powered one set on and plugged its receiver in. Once the two had linked up, I turned the other headset on and plugged its receiver in to my roommate's computer. This headset is very comfortable to wear. I have a large head and have to extend the headband nearly as far as it can go, but the headset doesn't squeeze my head like most do. My roommate feels like they're squeezing her head, but not bad enough that she can't wear them for hours at a stretch. The microphone is on the right side. It looks very small inside the box when it's pointing up. It rotates from the bottom of the earphone so it will be a proper length when you use it. The headset has volume controls, a power switch, and a microphone mute on the headset itself. Unfortunately, there is no push-to-talk button like many of us gamers would love to see for when we get up to make a sandwich and someone asks us a question. The charging cable is, I think, micro-USB. It's the same charging cable that my Logitech wireless mouse and my Android cell phone use. The 33 foot range only applies to direct line of sight, and even then it's pushing it. I have thick walls in my apartment with lots of electrical wiring run through them. Don't expect these to work if there are two or more walls between you and the receiver. Sometimes it will just randomly drop connection. When this happens, powering the headset off and back on sometimes fixes it. Somestimes we have to unplug the transmitter for a moment and plug it back in to fix it. This happens rarely enough that it's a minor inconvenience for me and not a deal-breaker. Make sure you enable the bass boost in the properties for the wireless headset in Windows. I am very happy with this headset. The sound quality and convenience are wonderful and outweigh the minor complaints. For the price, you get a great wireless headset. No cords to trip over, and no cord jerking you back when you forget to take them off when you get up. I would recommend these to all of my friends.

    Good performance for the money

    I am preparing to buy a replacement H600 tomorrow after using my previous pair for over four years. I had finally reached the point that the battery life per charge was decreasing and the padding was simply worn out. Cords and I simply don't get along and I finally got tangled in the charging cord and damaged the receptacle in the headset, which sealed its fate. The sound quality is decent for the price but do not expect Bose-quality. I used the headset with two different Windows 7-equipped laptops simply because I cannot hear most laptop speakers well. I had rare connection glitches that were usually easily solved by unplugging the Nano USB transmitter, waiting a moment, then plugging it back in. As for range results, no, line-of-sight is NOT always necessary, for when I initially bought this unit, I lived in a circa 1935 restored apartment building with very thick, metal-mesh reinforced, plaster walls and I had no issues wandering about the entire apartment with one or more walls between myself and the laptop, at ranges of 25 to 30 feet. I found the range to be fairly accurate in my case. The range of these headsets is simply going to vary depending on your personal environment. I never had some of the setup issues mentioned in other reviews and never had any problems with battery life, either, even after it began to lose its endurance after 4+years (the battery is not set up to be replaced). After returning to a wired headset recently (another Logitech unit that has already died after only six weeks), I realized how spoiled I had become with the wireless H600. If another H600 has similar longevity for me, I certainly have no complaints for the price. My only reason for not rating it a full 5 stars is the charging cable that could stand to be a bit longer for use while using the headset.

    This review is based on the fact that I am using them with a Mac as opposed to a Windows PC, and primarily used for Skype and FaceTime calls. First of all, I didn't go shopping for the wireless set as an absolute. I was replacing an older corded headset from Logitech because the faux leather on the ear pads eventually breaks down and starts to crumble giving one black dandruff. So, when I got to Best Buy and saw this pair, and that they were selling for much less on Amazon, and a team member told me they'd match the price, I went for them. Then the fun began. I nearly returned them the next day because I wasn't getting them to work as I wanted them to. At first, as I've read on-line, the headset seemed to want to use the computer microphone instead of the headset mic. The headset is recognized on my Mac, but some of the controls in the audio settings are grayed out, and not available. Just as I was about to give up on the headset, somehow they began to work. Best I can tell, the problem was solved when I closed and then reopened Skype. My knowledge of the Mac environment and general computer things is reasonably above average, and I don't have a patience issue, so I gave this quite a bit of time. Now they work just great. My brother, who is usually on the other side of the Skype conversation says they sound better than the corded Logitech headset I had previously. I'm guessing the setup on a Windows PC will be easier. Just be patient and I think you'll enjoy this headset. Not being tethered to the computer with a cord is the best. I have purchased a considerable amount of Logitech products and most have worked as advertised. Enjoy.

    Very short wireless range, unremarkable otherwise

    Really the only thing I have to say about this headset is that the wireless range is atrocious, which I suspect is because of the incredibly tiny receiver. Sitting at my computer it would usually be okay but if I got even 1 step further away from my desk (or even leaned back in my chair) the audio quality would dip dramatically: static or dead air when it loses the connection, and then sped-up audio for a second when it resumes the connection. I had been looking for a replacement headset to use with my PC for skype calls and listening to music and such and had enjoyed the freedom of being able to get up and walk around with my previous headset. This headset failed in living up to that specific task. If you don't need to be able to get up and walk any distance away from your computer or laptop, or you just want to leave it plugged in all the time, it's an adequate headset, but nothing special. As for the value for its price, I think I would be just as satisfied with the performance of a wired headset that's half the price of this one considering that the wirelessness of this one hardly matters. My total time using this model was only a couple weeks before I couldn't put up with it any longer and I've already exchanged it for a different brand.

    ATTN Chromebookers

    I bought these headphones to pair with my Toshiba Chromebook 2 with the intention of using the mic to dictate notes for work. As with most products these days a manual wasn't included, just a rather poor diagram. After doing some research I learned I needed to download the Logitech Unifying app from the Chrome Store. After doing this and inserting the nano receiver I was able to listen to streamed music, which came in nice and clear. However, when I attempted to use the mic for dictation, I could not get it to work. The next day I brought it to the Geek Squad and they had a hard time figuring it out as well. After we got the whole team involved the mystery was solved. To activate the mic go to your Chromebook's settings, click on advanced settings, scroll down to accessibility, click on Enable on screen keyboard and a little icon should appear in the lower right hand corner of your screen. Click on the icon which will feature a display with a small mic. Click on that and you're ready to dictate. I wish I could have found these instructions somewhere. I live in a two story town house with a basement and I can travel throughout with the headphones on with no distortion and the music sounding crisp and clear. I hope this review/tutorial proves useful to others.

    I really do like these, but you have to put it in perspective. These are probably the most inexpensive wireless headsets on the market. So, here are the gripes. They are not super comfortable. Not horrible, but you won't want to wear them for 4+ hours at a time or your ears will get sore. Since I only game for 1-2 hours at the most it hasn't been much of an issue, but I'm not as hard core as some of you out there. The second gripe is that most of the time I have to fiddle to get it to connect when I boot up the computer. Sometimes flipping the switch on the headset will get it to pair up, sometimes unplugging the dongle and re-plugging it works. Never had to go beyond that. So it's a bit of a frustration, but I just use a front side USB port. I've never needed the Logitech pairing tool to make it work, just one of the two above methods. Once paired it doesn't unpair itself until the next boot. The sound is okay for my taste. An audiophile might disagree, but I'm a casual gamer/movie watcher/music listener so it's perfect for that. Just know that for under $40 you shouldn't be expecting something that works like a $400 headset.

    A headset my daughter isn't destroying!

    So... my daughter goes through headsets. As in, in the past, they've generally only lasted her a few days to a few weeks. Her mom has given her several of her old ones, I gave her a few of my old ones, and I'd bought a couple for her. This last time that she told me her headset wasn't working, I decided that this time, instead of buying another cheapie, I'd try to get something higher quality... and I decided to go wireless, since I suspected that her destroying headsets had a lot to do with carrying around her laptop, using it in bed, etc, and that most likely, the wire was getting bent enough where it went into the plug to eventually short out or break. So I got this one. It was more expensive than I was originally looking to spend, but it seemed to be of high quality, and it was wireless, with a USB dongle, which was important since her laptop doesn't have bluetooth. So far, she's had it about a month and a half, has been using it constantly, and it hasn't broken yet. She loves it, and I'm happy!

    Okay Audio, Frequent Lost Pairing

    So the sound on these headsets is okay. Not fantastic. I sit less than three feet from the small desktop machine on which I use this headset. About 1/3 of the time, I start hearing static over the connection. When that static isn't present, the sound is decent. Nice bass, okay high range. It's an inexpensive headset and the audio quality shows it. My biggest complaint is the USB microreceiver. If I turn off the headset, then come back and turn it on, I'm not hearing audio for at least five minutes afterward. Same when I turn off the headset and charge it overnight. I've tried removing the receiver and reinserting it after Windows starts back up. It's still at least five minutes before audio plays through the earpieces. I have also had to re-pair the headset to the receiver six times. So far. And counting. This is NOT something you can do out of the box. You have to download a pairing utility from Logitech. 2 of those six times required that I wait the above-mentioned five minutes before sound started working again. The wireless on these headphones is, quite bluntly, broken. Not recommended. At. All.

    Does not work with Microsoft Surface

    This does not work with Microsoft Surface Pro. Horrible experience with the Logitech Support team. They say "Sorry we haven't tested it with Surface Pro". For a company like Logitech, I would expect them to support their products, but no. They would not even call it defective, but for me, if it does not work with my Surface Pro, then it's defective for me, and I would like a refund. I will NOT buy a Logitech product EVER. They said their supervisor will contact me. No supervisor ever contacted. Then they start emailing me saying supervisor approved replacement, but please provide serial number, without providing any detail as to where to find serial number. After going back and forth and sending them pictures of all the model details i could find, they come back and say sorry we cannot replace. This is the most horrible company i have bought a product from. STAY AWAY from Logitech.

    I have concluded this is a mediocre product. I have a wireless mouse and keyboard (also Logitech branded) that work pretty flawlessly. However, the h600 wireless headset is a daily challenge. The LED intended to convey info about charge level and connectivity is very flaky. I find myself needing to power reset the system several times a day. Based on my experiments, the best reset method seems to involve removing the USB transceiver for 1 to 5 minutes, while also turning off the headset. Next I reinsert the USB transceiver while the headset is plugged into a separate USB port and charging. When I turn the headset back on it usually functions correctly. The transceiver is finicky regarding which USB port is utilized (probably related to USB 2.0 vs. 3.0 hardware support). All in all it is largely an unreliable product. As FYI , I primarily use a Toshiba Satellite laptop with a Windows 10 (so-called) operating system. I prefer Linux but too few device drivers seem to be available.

    I bought this because I had my PC connected to my TV for a while and needed a wireless option. I was seated about 6 feet away with clear view of the USB dongle and it would constantly have static and lag. People on the other end would get screeching noises or would not hear me at all. I figured maybe 6 feet was too far and wouldn't work out so I took it to work to use with my IP phone. This headset can't handle being literally 2 feet from the dongle on my laptop. Constant static and connection loss even with a full charge. I couldn't even tell you about the sound quality because the connection is so poor. Bottom line, wish I had listened to other reviews about the static issues and poor quality of the headset. This thing literally drove me to go buy a new desk so I could go back to my wired setup.

    Doesn't work when you turn it off and then back on

    Bottom line, I can't use it. It works fine when you first insert the USB wireless transmitter. My PC detects it, I can select it as the default sound device, mic and headphones work, everything's great. But then when I'm done, I turn the headset off because, you know, I don't see a need to waste the power. But when I turn it back on - no sound, no mic, nothing. And nothing I do gets it working again - switching the default device selection, removing and reinserting the USB transmitter, turning the headset off and then removing and reinserting the USB transmitter - nothing. Can't get it to work. My PC still detects it, but no sound or mic. So, yeah, like I said, I can't even use it. One star, probably won't buy Logitech again.

    I am really happy to get this headset. Most importantly, it makes me free of those wires and allows me to move around a little while I am talking using VoIP. I am talking in meeting for more than 3 hrs everyday, and this headset is really comfortable on ear. The sound quality is pretty good for music. It's talk time is also very good, and the best thing is I can use it while it's getting charged via PC USB cable. The only problem is it's range... it's no where near 30ft as mentioned by Logitech. Moreover, it doesn't work behind walls; it needs clear line of sight between headset and the USB dongle. Also, the price could have been little less... fourty bugs looks ok. Overall, it is working for me; using it for 4 months and I am happy to have this.

    The concept of the headset is great, the implementation and practical use is just not there. After charging the headset battery for 3 hours, I started the setup. The Nano USB used on this headset unreliable and is sporatic at best. The instructions say not to plug it into a USB hub. I tried putting the USB in the front USB slots and in the rear, and nothing. I plugged it into my USB hub, and it took about 5 minutes for the computer to find it and install the drivers. The range says 30 feet, I was 3 feet away and got a crackeling broken up sound. I shut the computer dowm restarted it, and it never found the headsets again, in any slot ,anywhere, at least in the 10 minutes I gave gave them to find each other . Needless to say, I took them back. And no, it was not my computer. I have an i7 with 10gb ram etc etc etc.

    It's very easy to setup. However, you have to change the sound output in sound settings (not like plugging in a headset and you hear sound immediately). The range of the sound when moving away from the computer is reasonable; it's at a range where if you get too far (maybe about 50-75 ft); you start to hear the static and the lag in sound speed; like if you hear a video or sound in slow motion, but with static. The mic part is pretty much standard; though I was told the sound quality on the receiving end of my voice was louder (vs. my old headset; where I had to shout almost every time). So if you like the wireless aspect; definite recommend. Just be reasonable to how far you move from the computer before you hear a drop in sound quality. Obviously, not for those who think that jogging around the block with these on; even though you are next to your computer, you will be able to hear, it's not going to happen, be realistic.

    I purchased these to replace a plantronics wired USB headset I use daily for work. I was looking for the ability to move around without wires. These are decent. Fairly comfortable. They sound clear and the mic works well making them great for conference calls. They sound ok if you are listening to music, etc. but don't expect much in that area. I'm a Mac user and my only complaint on the headphones is the headset not staying connected after the Mac has gone to sleep and has been woken back up. The headphones have to be switched off, USB stick removed and then reinserted, and sound settings changed to get them to work sometimes. In the past I've seen other Logitech products dobtge same with macs. I'm sure they were designed for windows users in mind.

    Can barely tell if its on or on mute, there is one little light that sometimes is green. never quite sure if its muted and working for call center, i need to know for certain that it's on mute so i can speak to management or co-workers about them, without them hearing. Once i learned the sound in the headset that was helpful but i am still worried. The range is ok in the same room but walk right around a wall and it starts cutting out.Gave it a 4 because it was not expensive for being wireless, had i paid more I would be mad. Has not hurt my ears too much and i wear it 8 hours a day, the last logitech corded headset i had hurt my ears after a few hours so this is much more comfortable.

    These are great headphones-they are multipurpose meaning we use them for the video games as well as the computer-a few small dislikes about the product-if I walk into a different room from where the usb is plugged in the sound is muffled quite a bit- so range not very good-I would say after 7 feet though I know they claim to reach farther. Also with 6 kids it is very hard to keep track of the little usb thing that plugs in to make them wireless-it is quite tiny-should come on a string to keep out of reach when not being used. This is actually the 3rd pair we purchased in past 2 years since we keep losing the usb plug in adapter. When headphones are charged they seem to last quite a long time and the sound is fantastic!

    I purchased these to get away from the cord, which this does. I have had some issues with the bluetooth, however. The sound quality is not as good as the USB headphones and I have had connection problems with static, which may be due to competition with a wireless mouse. When I separate the wireless dongles on different USB clusters (e.g back of the machine vs. monitor) the headphones work better. I have not been able to try them out yet for gaming, but they did not work well for Google Hangout. The person on the other end complained of a high pitch whine that disappeared when I muted the microphone. This may have as much to do with Google Hangout as it is with the headphones, so to be fair, it needs more use and testing.
