The Logitech BH320 USB Stereo Earbuds are the first earbuds qualified as
Optimized for Microsoft Lync, a designation from Microsoft Corp. for
communications devices that "provide a high quality user experience,
with ‘just works' installation, rich audio and video, and a lower total
cost of ownership."
"Earbuds have become popular for listening to music and talking on
mobile phones, so we realize many people prefer earbuds for PC-based
communications," said Giovanni Mezgec, general manager for Lync at
Microsoft. "We're delighted that enterprises deploying Microsoft Lync
have an option to use light-weight, high-quality earbuds that are
Optimized for Microsoft Lync."
Featuring a sleek black finish and brushed aluminum accents, the new
Logitech earbuds weigh only slightly more than one ounce and come with a
convenient travel pouch for the mobile professional. In-line controls
for volume up, volume down, mute, call answer and call end make it
simple to manage voice and video calls without having to touch the
keyboard or mouse.
No driver or other software is required — the earbuds are ready just
seconds after plugging into any open USB port.
"The Logitech BH320 USB Stereo Earbuds are an elegant choice for those
who want a headset that is barely visible, yet looks good and delivers
an outstanding audio experience," said Eric Kintz, vice president and
general manager of Logitech for Business. "These earbuds are the perfect
portable companion for the new ‘anywhere office,' where work gets done
at home, in hotels, at airports, in shared office spaces and many points
Compatible with major unified communications (UC) platforms, the
Logitech BH320 USB Stereo Earbuds use five-band parametric equalization
on both the microphone and speaker paths for optimal sound quality that
closely matches the experience of normal speech in the same room. In
addition, active echo cancellation helps make the user's speech clearly
intelligible to those on the other end of phone calls and
videoconferences. A six-foot cord allows for an increased range of
movement during calls.
Pricing and Availability
The Logitech BH320 USB Stereo Earbuds are expected to be available in
North America and Europe later this month for a suggested price of
$79.99, from resellers
who specialize in the business-to-business market. The product will not
be offered by consumer electronics retailers. For more information on
