Today Logitech expanded its line of mobile phone headsets with the introduction of two new compact Bluetooth mobile phone headsets: the Logitech Mobile Traveller Headset and the Logitech Mobile Express Headset. Both feature a small form factor and use the Bluetooth 1.2 technology which includes AFH (Adaptive Frequency Hopping) to reduce interference as well as WindStop technology to improve audio quality in windy conditions.

Logitech Mobile Traveller Headset
The Mobile Traveller Headset features a compact design that is polished silver in color with chrome-colored accents. The headset is lightweight -- weighing only 0.6 ounces. It features a unique, comfortable over-ear design, with a cushioned ear pad that rests on the outer ear instead of inside it, and an over-ear soft rubber earpiece, which comfortably and securely wraps around the ear. Logitech's flip clip design makes it quick and easy to flip the earpiece to fit either ear.

Besides being compact and comfortable, this headset also includes Logitech's patent-pending WindStop technology. Wind noise is a major problem for mobile phones -- even a car's air conditioning fan can cause microphone interference. WindStop technology is an innovation that surrounds the microphone with an acoustical barrier to filter the disruptive effects of wind noise, enabling clear conversations in adverse conditions. WindStop not only offers wind-noise reduction that is superior to expensive DSP (digital signal processor) solutions, but does so without adding weight or reducing battery life.

The Mobile Traveller headset offers seven hours of continuous talk time and up to 300 hours of standby time. The product includes a call/answer button located directly on the headset, so people can conduct calls without having to pick up the handset. The Logitech Mobile Traveller Headset also supports several features built into many mobile phones, such as voice dialing, three-way calling, and mute. The Logitech Mobile Traveller Headset will be available in September in for $79.99.

Mobile Express Headset
The Logitech Mobile Express Headset features a fashionable, compact design at a very affordable price. The headset is also very lightweight -- weighing just 0.6 ounces. It provides a secure and comfortable fit with its adjustable wrap-around earpiece and small in-ear speaker. The headset can be worn on either the left or right ear. Smoke in color with silver accents, the headset features a call/answer button located directly on the side of the headset, so people can accept calls without having to pick up the handset.

The Logitech Mobile Express Headset offers four hours of continuous talk time and up to 110 hours of standby time. It also supports several features built into many mobile phones, such as voice dialing, three-way calling, and mute. The Logitech Mobile Express Headset will be available in October for $49.99.
