Why do we need headphones? Noisy environment (especially children) and you want to escape into the world of night-gaming. Either you go silent or simply put on a pair of headphones. This is true provided you don’t have a sophisticated segregated gaming room where the surrounding sound would not affect you and you don’t disturb others. However, picking the right headphones is no easy job either, particularly in the case of console gaming.
First issue is the cable. It’s not much of a problem if you have a monitor for visuals but the cable does pose a hindrance at times. Another issue is of in-game chat. As long as it’s PC gaming we don’t have a problem but here too console gaming poses a problem. Most of the headphones that allow usage on multiple systems require component cable inputs.. which brings us back to the same old cable issue.
As if in answer to all our demands, Logitech has come up with the Logitech F540 wireless headset, a perfect piece of excellence and innovation and definitely a solution to our gaming troubles.. Though bulky, it not only gets rid of wires but allows usage in any system. It’s not a Herculean task to set up and the best part is that it can be left set up nearly permanently.
The receiver has plugs for component cables from the PS3, Xbox 360 and an auxiliary audio jack in the form on 3.5 mm input. It also has a USB connection of PS3 chat. The facilities also include a removable cable that connects the headset to the Xbox controller for Xbox chat.
The 2.4GHz wireless used by the system provides awesome speed and responsive performance. The sound quality is one of its prime features that attracts customers. Try watching a movie with these pair of headphones and you’ll know- action with explosive sound effects as well as drama with quiet composition- all are effectively provided by this fabulous piece. The mic is perfect and trust me, nobody around will get an inkling of your gaming sessions owing to the sound proof ear buds! The noise cancelling mic can be adjusted and also comprises of a mute light to show if it’s active or not.
The batteries of this wireless headset deserve praise too! They can provide upto ten hours of performance, depending on environmental and usage settings. They can be recharged using a USB cable that connects to the receiver. The best news is that they can be used while charging..
The Logitech F540 wireless headset is versatile and unique in design. It combines all the elements of convenience and thrill, cuts out ambient noise and provides clarity of a theater experience.
Some users are of the opinion that this unit could even be better if it comprised of a Bluetooth interface feature. With this one could simply interface with a phone or computer or any device while still keeping the game console interfaces. The price is rather a hefty amount but trust me you won’t regret a single penny spent on it.
So grab a pair and get the feel of this stylish, impressive and inviting gaming headset.
