Logitech has unveiled the Zone Wireless 2, an advanced business headset leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) to deliver an unparalleled two-way noise-free calling experience. The headset incorporates AI far-end noise suppression, noise-cancelling microphones, hybrid Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), and personalized stereo sound, ensuring clear communication for business professionals in calls and meetings, especially in noisy environments.
In the contemporary landscape of hybrid work environments, where individuals operate from diverse spaces, issues like background noise and poor sound quality can impede collaboration and productivity. According to a recent study on equipping employees for hybrid work, 85% of those working from home face audio challenges, ranging from disruptive background noise to subpar sound quality through computer speakers. The study also highlights the inadequacy of modern collaboration tools, such as quality headsets, in hybrid workforces.
Prakash Arunkundrum, Chief Operating Officer at Logitech, emphasized, “Zone Wireless 2 is Logitech’s top-of-the-line headset for skilled professionals who need technology with a high degree of control, precision and innovation.” The headset not only offers advanced technology but also prioritizes environmental sustainability, contributing to a lower carbon footprint.
A standout feature of the Zone Wireless 2 is the ability to suppress ambient noise from the other person’s side of the call, even if that individual is not wearing a noise-cancelling headset. The Advanced Call Clarity feature, activated through Logi Tune, uses AI to distinguish the caller’s voice from their background, creating a two-way noise suppression system. The noise-cancelling microphones effectively eliminate distracting sounds and nearby conversations, enhancing call clarity.
The hybrid Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) addresses ambient noise around employee workspaces, such as keyboard clicks and HVAC noises, while the transparency mode allows users to stay aware of their surroundings while wearing the headset. Additionally, the Personal EQ feature in Logi Tune enables users to customize the headset’s audio profile based on their hearing range.
The Zone Wireless 2 ensures connectivity with multipoint Bluetooth® and smart enumeration, a patent-pending feature that intelligently switches between headset and computer audio without user intervention. This addresses the common issue of users losing audio connection when moving away from their computers.
To cater to the demands of busy professional schedules, the headset offers up to 40 hours of battery life, with a quick five-minute charge providing up to one hour of talk time. The device combines functionality with aesthetics, featuring a modern, premium look with soft, breathable earcups available in Graphite, Off-White, and Rose colour options.
IT teams can confidently deploy Zone Wireless 2 to their workforce, as the headset is certified for Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Google Meet, Google Voice, and Fast Pair. Integration with Sync, Logitech’s device management platform, enables secure and scalable remote management of Logitech devices, ensuring efficient troubleshooting and firmware updates.
Designed with sustainability in mind, Zone Wireless 2 allows users to extend the life of their device through interchangeable earpads and a replaceable battery. The headset incorporates 20% certified post-consumer recycled plastic and utilizes aluminium produced with renewable energy. The paper packaging is sourced from FSC™-certified forests, reflecting Logitech’s commitment to responsible forest management.
Logitech goes further in its commitment to sustainability by certifying the Zone Wireless 2 as carbon neutral. The carbon impact of the product and packaging is reduced to zero through Logitech’s investment in carbon offsetting and removal projects, aligning with the company’s goal of creating a climate-positive world.
