smaller than the last generation headset and measures
3" long. The headset has an earpiece that covers your
ear comfortably with the help of soft foam wrap. The ear
hook is mounted on a silver ring that can be moved to fit
either ear. This is a very cool design that looks great and
is very functional. The ear hook can also be moved away
from the earpiece so that you can put the headset on your
ear quickly. The boom is about 2 inches long with
the WindStop mouth piece installed on the tip of the boom.
The Logitech headset has a very clean design with only
a multi-function button and a raised volume up and down
button. The multi-function button also doubles as the LED
to indicate battery, charging and pairing status. There
is a small charging port located on the insider of the
headset. The Logitech headset weights less than 1 oz. and
is light and comfortable enough for you to wear it throughout
The Logitech Mobile Freedom headset has
the latest Bluetooth 1.2 chipset which should reduce the
interference from WiFi radio signals. It supports both
Hands-free and Headset profiles. We’ve tested it with
iPAQ 6315, the Sony
Ericsson P800 and the Nokia
N-Gage QD, and the headset
paired with all devices quickly. The voice hand-off between
the phones and the headset was graceful on all devices,
and the headset works well with Microsoft Voice Command
on the Pocket PC and the voice dialing feature on used on
the other phones tested.
this new generation of Bluetooth wireless headsets; Logitech
introduced a patent-pending wind noise reduction technology
called WindStop. It utilizes a special material for the
mouth piece that reduces wind noise dramatically without
using too much power that the noise-reducing DSP (Digital
Signal Processor) requires. The result? A much quieter outgoing
sound environment in general. You will notice that the background
noise caused by car engines, busy public environments and
wind often heard from wireless (and even wired) headsets
is much lower. Your voice stands out more above the background
noise. However, the outgoing voice volume is also somewhat
reduced, so the folks receiving your calls will hear you
best if they are in quiet environments. But if you are mostly
calling into office environments from the noisy road or conventions,
this headset will help your outgoing voice quality noticeably.
The incoming voice quality is quite good. Even MP3s and videos
sound very decent through the headset when I tested it with
the iPAQ 6315.
The Logitech Mobile Freedom headset has better
Bluetooth range than many of the last generation headsets.
I could get 30 feet between the phone and the headset without
losing voice quality or connections. It supports voice dialing
which worked perfectly in our tests, mute calls and volume
up and down during a call.
The Logitech headset has a rechargeable
battery and comes with an A/C charger. The headset offers
5-7 hours of talk time and 250-300 hours of standby. That’s about as
long as their last generation flagship headset’s battery
time. Logitech will release the next generation high end
wireless headset that’s projected to have even longer

dramatically from the last generation technology! The price
The LED under
the multi-function button cannot easily be seen when you
hold the button. The noise canceling and the WindStop seem
to have lowered the outgoing voice volume as well.
The package includes the Bluetooth headset, an A/C power
adapter for charging the headset, two extra ear-pad foam
cover and a printed quick start guide.
