The Recommendation

I absolutely loved being able to walk around listening to music without worrying about a cord. It made sitting at my desk easier (slide the chair away from the PC to get into a filing cabinet without having to pause and take the headphones off) and working around the house easier (no cord to dip in the water while doing the dishes). The sound, as I mentioned before, was good (although not outstanding), and I felt these were comparable to many other middle of the road headphones I’d tried. I decided the convenience of being able to walk around wirelessly made the cost ($90-100 street, but check for rebates) worth it, even if other corded headphones sounded a bit better. There are better headphones out there for the price, but no other cordless options (designed specifically for the iPod) that I’ve seen.

I never took these to the gym, though. That would have been my ultimate test – leaving my iPod in my gym bag and carrying it around as I moved from machine to machine. (Because of the transmitter, I would not have been comfortable using my regular arm strap.) So why didn’t these headphones make it to the gym? Two reasons. First, I wasn’t sure I didn’t look like a complete dork in these (okay, more of a dork than usual). I probably could have overcome this, however, if they hadn’t hurt so much! In the end I wasn’t willing to compromise comfort for convenience, and after wearing these for more than 10 minutes my ears hurt.

All-in-all if you are looking for a wireless solution, give these a try. Just be prepared to use their money back guarantee if you can’t make them fit comfortably. Why didn’t Logitech build in any way to adjust the fit? This one flaw turns an otherwise solid pair of headphones into anything but a sure thing.
