Introduction

We made a commitment some time back to introduce a series of reviews on various headphones and accessories. While we haven’t yet opened up “Headphonaholics” we have started down the road of evaluating basic headphone designs and listening to a number of units to determine what it is that makes a pair of headphones – in this case wireless headphones – effective and good performers. The Logitech Wireless Headphones for PC (kind of like calling your dog “Dog” isn’t it?) appeared to be exactly the sort of item we wanted to evaluate for those looking for a convenient way to listen to music, unencumbered, while at their PC. MP3 listening and gaming have exploded in the past several years and I haven’t met too many people who like to be encumbered by wires – at least not at their PCs. The question on my mind, of course, was whether the wireless systems would perform in a manner that would make them a good value in comparison to their wired counterparts. Possibly more important, however (and more appropriate) is how they fare against other wireless options in the marketplace.

Cool, didn't know clip on headphones actually had bass (mine sure don't).

One thing, CS:S is the best game for testing player positioning.
