Logitech H800

Some people just don’t like things in their ears. They still love music. And they love to run. They even love to run with music but they can’t stand the tiny little earbuds. Not all ears are created equal and some people have a very hard time finding the right size or they just never can get used to something stuck in their ear. Either way, there are still options. Logitech has put together a wireless headset that will work with any Bluetooth compatible device and will hold a charge up to 6 hours so you can get your long runs in, no problem and you don’t have to put one thing inside your ear.

The Logitech H800 headset is a foldable, over-the-ear design with a noise-cancelling microphone and ear-mounted controls to stop or start and for volume. The ear cups and top cushion are made from durable synthetics and are thickly padded for your comfort. The earphones are 3 inches wide and weigh 9.6 ounces so you won’t feel like you’re wearing an entire speaker on your head. The sound is also impressive. Logitech used laser-tuned drivers and a built in equalizer for a rich, digital stereo effect. And all of this is connected using Bluetooth technology, so there are absolutely no wires to get tangled up in or to catch on trees and bushes.

      The Logitech H800 is optimal for any activity. You can wear it out for a run or walk, running errands or around the house. Since it has a noise-canceling headphone, you can talk to your friends or family while running or cleaning. This headset comes with an adapter for your computer and video game console as well. You can play online with your friends, Skype and video message using these headphones without the background noise of wherever you’re at interfering.
      Basic Features
      The Logitech H800 is an over-the-ear headset with an attached noise-canceling microphone. Controls are mounted on the ear of the headset, allowing start, stop and volume control to be adjusted right at your fingertips. As a wireless headset, it uses Bluetooth connectivity to any mobile device, smartphone, personal computer, and gaming console. The H800 features a durable, thick padding on the ear cups and the top cushion. And, for the longer runs in your training regimen, the rechargeable battery lasts up to 6 hours.
      Advanced Features
      As a wireless headset, the Logitech H800 allows for some range between the earphones and the connected device. This particular model maintains a powerful, short-range connection up to 40 feet away from your phone, computer or gaming console. The noise-canceling microphone is attached to the earphone but can be moved if not in use. When rotated up and out of the way, the microphone automatically mutes itself, sensing that you are not using it. If you are using it but would like the microphone to be closer or further away from your mouth, you can make any adjustment you’d like with the flexible, rotating boom microphone. It will bend to any shape or position. With Logitech’s electronics background, they have pulled no punches with the H800. Laser-tuned drivers and a built-in equalizer give a rich, digital stereo sound, making you feel like you are fully immersed in your music or your calls.
      Sound Quality
      Logitech is an international brand provider of computers, tablets, and electronics. It only makes sense that they would use some of that technology in their wireless headsets. If you're on a call, Skype, video message, or online game, the noise-canceling headset reduces any potential background noise that would interfere with that activity. Only your voice and that of any others you're speaking with would be heard through the headset. More importantly, the headphones themselves are made with laser-tuned drivers and a built-in equalizer for a rich, digital stereo sound. Listening to music with the Logitech H800 is like fully immersing yourself in the song, having a concert in your own ears.
      The Logitech H800 headphones are wireless. They connect to your personal computer, gaming console and mobile device via Bluetooth technology. This keeps you free to roam all over your house, your neighborhood and your marathon without hanging up on anything or being chained to your device.
      If you’re not a lover of earbuds, the over-the-ear design of the Logitech H800 will be most comfortable for you. With an adjustable, foldable design, you can extend or retract the ear cups to fit your head exactly. The upper cushion and ear cups use the same durable, synthetic material to cushion both the top of your head and your ears from the plastic construction of the headset. The controls are located directly on the earphones so there is no need to pull out your device to adjust volume or to start or stop your songs and calls, making the headphones convenient as well as comfortable.
      The style of the Logitech H800 is sleek and professional. In a solid black, these foldable over-the-ear headphones do not appear to be cheap like many with this design. When open, they appear to be a solid, single piece, without folding in toward the head. The padding is thick but not overly obvious, appearing as one with the headphones. The microphone boom is short and compact. It can be moved around and bent into different shapes, depending on your needs, or even out of the way.
      The Logitech H800 is a steady and reliable headset. Their construction is solid and feels like a single piece. Their foldable design doesn’t take away from their durability at all. The only piece that may wear out before the actual headset would be the padding on the ear cups or the top cushion. Also, bending the microphone boom needlessly could cause it to become loose over time.
      Ease of Use
      Bluetooth connectivity is as simple as pushing a button on both the Logitech H800 and the device you are trying to pair it with. Once they’re connected, you can adjust volume, start and stop music tracks and turn the headset on and off directly from the controls located on the outside of the ear. If you’re using them with your gaming console or your personal computer, this model comes with a USB receiver to connect you to that device with ease. You can even plug the headset in while you’re using it if the 6-hour charge is dying.
      Power Source
      The Logitech H800 is a rechargeable wireless headset. It has a USB cable that can be plugged into the wall or the computer to charge. The battery holds up to a 6-hour charge without plugging in, so you can run a long run or a day of errands while chatting on the phone or listening to music.
      This headset has so many positive attributes and comes from a company with so much electronics experience that you expect the price to be higher than it is. For a middle of the road price, you can get an optimal, versatile headset that can be used for online gaming, Skyping, listening to music or hands-free conversations. The Logitech H800 is priced very reasonably for what it offers.
      Key Features
      • Foldable, over-the-ear design
      • Bluetooth connectivity to personal computers, gaming systems and mobile devices

      Bottom Line
      If you like old school, over-the-ear headphones or if you just don’t care for earbuds to be placed directly in your ears, the Logitech H800 headset is a great option for you. With soft, comfortable ear cups and an upper cushion on the band to protect your head, this model is comfortable and functional. Without looking bulky and chunky like its predecessors, the H800 has a sleek, professional design. But beyond the design, it also has amazing sound and functionality.

      Logitech has channeled its inner electronics geniuses and inserted laser-tuned drivers and a built-in equalizer for each ear to create a rich, digital stereo sound. You’ll be enjoying your own personal concert while running that half marathon. The noise-canceling technology in the microphone works extremely well, too. If you are on a call while you’re running errands, none of the background distraction will interrupt your call and they will only hear your words, not cars honking and babies crying.

      And finally, this functional headset is wireless! With Bluetooth connectivity, it can be used anywhere and with your personal computer, gaming console or mobile device. You can listen to music or have conversations anywhere.

      The versatility of this headset can go on and on. For the price, you are definitely getting your money’s worth and then some.
