ClearChat PC Wireless

Logitech this morning hoped to improve the quality of wireless headsets with the advent of its ClearChat PC Wireless. Instead of opting for Bluetooth, Logitech uses 2.4GHz and a special USB adapter to supply full-quality sound in both directions through the headset. Listeners can hear uncompressed stereo audio in addition to sending voice out through a boom-mounted microphone. The wireless approach is also promised to be more reliable with safeguards against interference up to the ClearChat's maximum 33-foot range.

The headset is built for simplicity and is known to work with both Macs and Windows PCs without the drivers or pairing usually needed with Bluetooth devices, even with built-in volume and mute controls on the earcups. Virtually all VoIP software recognizes it immediately, Logitech claims. The company hopes to ship the wireless version of its ClearChat design to both Europe and North America in May for $100, including a cradle for the USB adapter.
