Customizable Both-Ways Noise Reduction Calls Bring a New Level of Clarity to Business Communication
LAUSANNE, Switzerland & SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) introduced Zone Wireless 2, a top-of-the-line business headset that uses AI to deliver unique two-way noise-free calling experiences. AI far-end noise suppression, noise-canceling mics, hybrid Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), and personalized stereo sound help business professionals hear and be heard clearly in calls and meetings, especially in noisy environments.
In today’s hybrid work environments, individuals work from a variety of spaces, and in nearly every workspace, noise and poor sound quality can negatively affect collaboration and productivity. A recent Equipping Your Employees for Hybrid Work study found that 85% of work-from-home users struggle with audio issues, whether it’s from background noise from other participants or poor sound quality through computer speakers. The same study found that hybrid workforces aren’t properly equipped with modern collaboration tools, such as quality headsets.
“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,” said Prakash Arunkundrum, Chief Operating Officer at Logitech. “We built Zone Wireless 2 with advanced technology for uncompromising performance at a lower carbon footprint.”
Notably, the headset allows the user to suppress ambient noise from the other person’s side of the call, even if that person is not wearing a noise-canceling headset. The Advanced Call Clarity feature, activated through Logi Tune, uses AI to separate the other caller’s voice from their background. Superior noise-canceling mics suppress distracting sounds and near conversations through advanced beamforming technology that captures the user’s voice. These create a two-way noise suppression system.
Hybrid active noise cancellation (ANC) blocks out ambient noise around employee workspaces such as keyboard clicks, nearby talkers and HVAC noises; and transparency mode, which helps users stay aware of their surroundings while wearing the headset. Upon setup on Logi Tune, users can use the Personal EQ feature to customize the headset to fit their individual hearing range through a self-administered hearing test.
As professionals transition through different scenarios in their workday, they can stay connected with multipoint Bluetooth® and smart enumeration. This patent-pending feature solves the problem users often experience when they leave their computer, lose connection, then return to a setup that appears to be audio-connected but isn’t. Smart enumeration is the result of communication among headset, USB-C receiver and the operating system to intelligently switch between headset and computer audio without the user having to manually toggle among audio sources or remove a dongle.
To power up professional busy work schedules, Zone Wireless 2 provides up to 40 hours of battery life, with talk time and listening time varying based on whether ANC is on or off. A quick five-minute charge provides up to one hour of talk time.
Beyond its sophisticated functionality and outstanding call clarity, the headset boasts a modern, premium look with soft, breathable earcups, available in Graphite, Off-White, and Rose colorways to suit professionals’ personality and style. While enjoying immersive sound, style, and comfort, professionals can simply tap or swipe on the ear cup to control media and volume using smart touch controls or enable on-ear detection in Logi Tune to automatically play or pause media when wearing or removing the headset.
IT teams can deploy Zone Wireless 2 to their workforce with confidence that the headset is certified for Microsoft Teams with a premium microphone for open office, Zoom, Google Meet, Google Voice, and Fast Pair.
Integration with Sync, Logitech’s device management platform, provides a secure and scalable approach to remotely manage Logitech devices. Sync allows IT admins to update firmware and troubleshoot Zone Wireless 2, whether the headset is used remotely or in the office, from a single, cloud-based interface.
