Logitech is known for producing great headsets, and the [easyazon_link asin=”B005GTO07O” locale=”US” new_window=”default” nofollow=”default” tag=”vicdor-20″ add_to_cart=”default” cloaking=”default” localization=”default” popups=”default”]Logitech H600[/easyazon_link] is one of their more affordable models. Yet that low price doesn’t mean that it’s an inferior headset. Compared to many of its competitors in its price range, the Logitech H600 comes out a clear winner. I hope you will find my Logitech H600 review informative!

Pros and Cons
While the manual says that the [easyazon_link asin=”B005GTO07O” locale=”US” new_window=”default” nofollow=”default” tag=”vicdor-20″ add_to_cart=”default” cloaking=”default” localization=”default” popups=”default”]Logitech H600[/easyazon_link] is not for tablets, smartphones, and other devices equipped with Bluetooth, actually this is not entirely accurate. Some enterprising owners have discovered that it works for the iPhone (and maybe even for the iPad and Android). Go to your iPhone, settings, general settings, and search in the Bluetooth. On your Logitech H600, hold the mute and the volume + buttons simultaneously. Maybe you can try it out.
As for the confirmed features of the Logitech H600, they all work as advertised. The wireless connection is very reliable, and countless people have tried it out and confirmed that the 33ft max distance is legit even with a wall in between.
It’s also easy enough to setup. For the most part, it’s plug and play. If you encounter any sort of problem, you just need to go to the Logitech forums and there’s some pairing program available. Another solution is to use another USB port at the back if the one in front is not working properly.
The sound is nice enough for music even though there are no built in equalizers, but what’s really important here is that when you’re chatting the voice is nice and clear. It’s also very easy to use, and the on-ear controls for volume and mute present no problems at all.
The mic also works well, and the noise canceling feature does cut down on the background noise significantly.
The comfort level is also more than tolerable, as the headband is adjustable and the plush ear pads do their job as they were meant to.
Now for the bad news. What you have to accept is that the sound quality from these speakers is just good enough, if barely. They will never ever replace the headset or speakers you use to listen to music if you consider yourself an audiophile. These are not professional-grade music headphones.
You should also never let the battery die. Once it does, you won’t be able to charge them easily again, and the customer support won’t be able to help. What you’ll need to do is to open up the [easyazon_link asin=”B005GTO07O” locale=”US” new_window=”default” nofollow=”default” tag=”vicdor-20″ add_to_cart=”default” cloaking=”default” localization=”default” popups=”default”]Logitech H600[/easyazon_link] and use a D-cell battery to jumpstart the headset battery. That gives the headset battery enough charge so it doesn’t go completely dead. The entire process is a bit complicated, but it’s explained by another reviewer in the Logitech H600 Amazon page in great detail.
There’s been a spate of negative reviews written about the Logitech H600, and for the most part it involves units that don’t come in their original packaging. That may mean that you’re getting a used or refurbished product.
Get a brand-new one, and you will be getting your money’s worth at the very least. It has a list price of $70, but you can get it for a lot less. And that makes it a true bargain as far as wireless headsets are concerned.
