Logitech Wireless Headset H820e Promises Enterprise-Grade Audio for Every Worker

Paul Lilly

The H820e boasts 10 hours of talk time on a single charge.

It's not just gamers and music buffs who need a solid pair of headphones, office workers trying to collaborate across the globe and close sales can benefit from a high quality headset, too. It's with that in mind that Logitech built its new Wireless Headset H820e for unified communications and PC-based soft phones. In an attempt to deliver the best of all worlds, Logitech claims the H820e brings together "enterprise-grade audio and innovative features in an affordable package" for every type of work environment, from traditional cubicles to open and/or home offices.

Logitech says the H820e isn't fazed by noisy work environments, which it counters with a noise-cancelling microphone, acoustic echo cancellation, and a built-in digital signal processing. It's optimized for Microsoft Lync and is compatible with all major unified communication and soft phone applications, including Cisco platforms, Logitech says.

Utilizing the DECT (Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications) standard, Logitech says the H820e has a range of up to 300 feet and is better suited for high-density work environments than most Bluetooth headsets. There's also a wide band/narrow band switch for a bit of fine grain control in finding a balance between audio quality and density.

Logitech says the H820e will be available worldwide starting in May for $180 (mono) and $200 (dual) . There's also a corded USB model (H650e) that's available now for $80 (mono) and $90 (stereo) .
