Review: Logitech Zone True Wireless Earbuds

2023-03-01 4 min read Review

Anyone who spends a large part of the day video conferencing knows what it’s like: headset head. Unpleasant, but a decent headset is still the best tool for good sound quality. The built-in microphone on a webcam just doesn’t compare, not to mention the annoyance of feedback caused by poorly placed speakers on your desk or loudly colleagues.

Logitech Zone Buds

Logitech promises with the Zone True Wireless Earbuds a set of in-ear headphones that delivers immersive experiences that help you sound clear, stay connected and confident. The company has done two years of research and development for this. By using three microphones per earbud (6 in total), voice sounds are separated from ambient noise (advanced beamforming). One of these microphones is inward-facing and uses the recorded vibrations (bone conduction) to isolate the speech signal even better.

After testing a week with the Logitech Zone True Wireless earbuds this is my experience.

Why should you need a VPN? Cybercriminals, Hackers, spies, government, overeager retailers and evenĀ internet service providersĀ can watch what you do online but only if we let them. So in this review i tested the VPN service of “Hidester VPN” for a couple of days, I used my iPhone to test and i must say i like the speed of the network and the simplicity of the client. I tried to reach out to some blocked sites, and these are working fine. Continue reading

Review: Jabra evolve 65

2018-03-20 1 min read Review Erwin Bierens
The evolve 65 MS Stereo is a lightweight headset for both music and Skype for Business. The specially designed leather feel ear cushions are pretty comfy to wear all day long. I like this model also because it has a busy light ring so my colleagues can see I’m calling or busy and do not want to disturbed. This one is located at the microphone side. You can use the headset with 2 devices at the same time, so for example your Laptop and your mobile phone. Continue reading

Review: Plantronics Voyager Focus UC

2018-03-18 2 min read Review Erwin Bierens
This headset is a more than a standard headset. The Voyager Focus has some advanced stuff build in. When you take of your headset while playing music, the music pauses. When you are in a Skype for Business meeting and you turn your microphone up or take of your headset it will mute you. This is all work of the Smart Sensors Plantronics has built in. The Active Noise Cancelling of this headset is working as you may expect. Continue reading
