New Logitech Ultimate Ears Headset with Mic and Remote


You can walk around wearing advertisements on your head for some musician who should be paying you, or you can pop in a pair of subtle earbuds that also happen to deliver top-quality stereo sound and come with an inline remote and microphone. The newly-arrived Ultimate Ears 600vi Noise-Isolating Headset with Mic and Remote from Logitech fits the latter type and is compatible with a wide range of smartphones, tablets, notebooks and portable players.

The 600vi headset employs specially tuned, top-firing, balanced armature speakers and audio filters to deliver stereo sound with extended high-frequency response and awesome detail. The in-ear headphones come with five sizes of soft, ergonomic silicone eartips and two sets of memory foam tips. The assortment enables you to find a perfect fit for stability and comfort. A custom fit also impedes unwanted ambient noise while improving the bass response.

The earphones are not bad to look at either. With silver and black housing, a tangle-resistant cord and a right-ear piece that is easy to identify because it is uniquely red (alliterative with “right”), you’ll be donning your Ultimate Ears to answer a call within a few of notes of the ring tone.

The in-wire mic and three-button remote enable you to make calls, take dictation, control music playback and adjust volume on compatible devices including smartphones and MP3 players. The 600vi works with the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad as well as Blackberry smartphones. (See the specification chart for more detailed information.) A hard plastic carrying case is included for storage.
