Logitech ClearChat Headset

Logitech this morning launched a pair of headsets that it believes can serve as all-round replacements in games as well as instant messaging and VoIP. The ClearChat Comfort and Pro both plug into a USB port for a relatively simple, one-cable link that works with both Mac OS X and Windows PCs. The peripheral maker claims better sound through laser-tuned drivers and notes that each wraps around the head with padded earcups and headbands that won't irritate the user in hours of regular use. The Pro adds a distinctive SoundSwitch equalizer that easily adjusts between ideal settings for games and other apps, though all models sport a flexible, noise-canceling boom microphone.

Either includes quick shortcuts for muting or adjusting volume, but are separated by their convenience. Wearers of the Comfort must turn to an in-line control for adjusting sound; the Pro expands on this with controls built into one of the earcups, making it easier to adjust sound in mid-session. The ClearChat Comfort should be ready this week at a price of $40 and will be followed by the Pro in September for $50.
