The design of
the Logitech USB Headset 250 is perfect and it fits comfortable on the
head with minimal adjustments. The right headphone has the
microphone swivel which can be moved towards the mouth when used for
voice recording or neatly folded against the headset when not in use.
The large foam ear cushions with its leatherette quality makes for a
comfortable listening experience that also assists in blocking some
With that said,
another impressive feature of the is that the microphone on the
headset supports “noise canceling” to ensure that that a majority
of background noise is cancelled to ensure high quality speech.
Needless to say, our testers on the other end thought that we had
some expensive recording devices and when they found out it was an
above average microphone headset, they were speechless. This is also
a bonus for those who want to record their own podcasts as the
quality is rather impressive.

We tested the

When tested with audio CD’s and MP3’s, the music was
smooth and the sound was exceptionally clear and in some
circumstances, it almost sounded like surround sound.
In conclusion, the
Logitech USB Headset 250 is a very impressive and versatile device
that offers comfort, great sound quality, easy installation and also
noise canceling microphones that I would recommend to any gamers,
music lovers or for those wanting to chat with others across the
internet. Check it out!
