Logitech Zone Wireless Plus Headset Review
Zone Wireless on-ear is available in gray and has a modern and earthy look. A matte finish and luxurious ear cushions paired with a rope-style fabric cord that connects the earcup to the headband. Nothing is striking here, but it is also not a boring standardized design.
The boom microphone is located on the left earcup and has a smooth rotating motion that allows easy and precise placement, and so it doesn’t get out of your line of sight when not in use. When pushed entirely up, the mic is automatically turned off (with prompt telling you so), and when pulled out of this position, it will automatically sound.
Comfortable ear cushions have a faux leather texture, with perforations through which the driver gives a frequency range of 100Hz-8kHz in speech mode, and 30Hz-13kHz in music mode. The bottom of the headband well coated like a rubber material, and the overall suitability and safety and very comfortable, even during long listening sessions.
There is a USB receiver dongle that enables computer-based audio integration, whether in the music library, audio browser, or video conference. The headset can pair with two devices at the same time (but will remember up to eight), and the USB receiver can only pair with one Wireless Zone headset.
Logitech claims the operational range of the Wireless Zone is around 100 feet – our tests yielded reliable results up to about 70 feet, but then we had a wall to compete. So, if you don’t work in a wide-open room, remember that its reach will be affected by whatever doors and walls are between you and your partner’s device.
Logitech estimates a battery life of around 14 to 16 hours – your results will vary with your volume level, how much music you listen to, and your ANC usage. The headset turned on for Qi wireless charging, but the system does not include a charging pad.
Zone Wireless uses an Omni-directional, dual-MEMS mic array that cancels background noise, with a frequency range of 85Hz-20kHz.
This microphone offers solid clarity. By using the Voice Memos application on the iPhone 8, we can understand every word we record, although there are still some distinctive Bluetooth ambiguities around the edges. A more impressive aspect of the mic array is its ability to eliminate background noise and again convey your voice. We changed some low-frequency rumble background to loud volume levels and didn’t even register via the mic. Loud music comes a little, but the mic still conveys words clearly in this scenario.
ANC Zone Wireless is robust for the price. That is not extraordinary compared to, say, Bose Noise Canceling Headphones 700, but it does the job, eliminating low frequencies quite effectively. With the ANC dead, Zone Wireless presents a powerful audio experience. On music with intense sub-bass content, such as “Silent Shout,” The Knife, the headset has substantial low-frequency depth. At the top, the level of listening is not wise, there is no distortion on this track, and at a more moderate level, the bass still feels substantial.
- Noise cancellation can affect audio playback.
- Audio and mic intelligibility aren’t as crisp as they could be
- Includes USB receiver for computer-based audio.
- Exceptionally comfortable
- Above-average noise cancellation
The Logitech Zone Wireless Bluetooth Headset delivers solid mic clarity in harsh environments, along with some decent noise cancellation and audio performance.
