Advantages: Cheap and with a noise cancelling facility
Disadvantages: On ear design may cause problems to some.
What do you get? The basic headphone bit is made in a silver plastic with a black headband which is adjustable. The actual earphone bits are covered with a foam pad, and sit on the ear rather than cupping around the ear. Looking at the rest of the headset, you have an adjustable boom microphone at the front, again with a sort of pad around the end piece. The microphone can also be adjusted right round so that you can have it on the left of the headset, or turn it right through and turn the headset around so that the microphone is on the right. The whole lot then connects to your computer via the 1.8m long lead into a 3.5mm plug. Also worth noting that with this universal 3.5mm plug, you can use this headset on your mp3 player, portable DVD or gaming system as well, where the microphone can be stored away vertically against the headset band.
What are they like in use? Looking at wearing them first, with the on-ear arrangement of the earphones, generally this sort of arrangement means that it's not going to block out all of the sound around you. So if you are planning to use these in a noisy environment, that may be something to consider. My experience of using these has found that they are perfectly adequate for normal everyday use in an office type environment because the sound that they produce is very clear and directed straight into the ear. Another issue that sometimes occurs with this on-ear arrangement is that with the earpiece effectively pressing onto the ear, and then pressing it into your head, extended use of this type of headset can cause discomfort. Now I've used these for perhaps up to an hour at a time on Skype and I've not really found that to be the case. The clamping load provided by the headband to push the earpieces onto your ears seems to be about right - not too much so as to cause discomfort, but just sufficient to hold them in position. But I suppose this may well also depend on your own personal head shape and tolerance, but as I said, for me this wasn't an issue.
One particularly good addition I've found was the noise cancelling ability with the microphone. When I originally got the headset, I tried this feature out by having my wife phone on me on Skype from the laptop in one room whilst wearing the headset, and me in another room on my laptop with a separate microphone and headset arrangement. The sound quality coming through from her microphone was very clear and concise with no problems. I know on other occasions, I've been in a room quietly talking to someone else on Skype where I've had a TV playing in the background, and they have not heard anything other than my voice.
In summary, this is a basic headset from Logitech that comes at a reasonable price and does the job. For me, it was fairly comfortable to wear for extended durations, and the microphone together with the noise cancelling feature seems to work very well. So overall, a 4* recommendation.
Summary: A good quality headset from Logitech
