Logitech Headset with Bluetooth Technology Now Offered by Verizon Wireless


FREMONT, Calif. — March 15, 2006 — Logitech (SWX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI), a leading manufacturer of peripherals with Bluetooth® wireless technology, and Verizon Wireless, operator of the nation´s most reliable wireless network, today announced that the Logitech® Mobile Traveler™ SE headset is now available in Verizon Wireless Communications Stores and in many major U.S. retail outlets, including The Home Depot, Circuit City, and BJ´s Wholesale Club.

Logitech´s comfortable and ultra-portable headset features the company´s patent-pending WindStop™ technology, so people can make mobile phone calls even in windy conditions. The integrated Bluetooth wireless technology in the headset provides Verizon Wireless customers a great cord-free calling experience. Using integrated controls on the headset, people can adjust volume, answer and end calls — or even initiate calls using the voice-dialing feature in select handsets — without ever touching the handset.

“Our wireless and noise-reduction technologies, and the reach and reliability of the Verizon Wireless network, should provide customers the enjoyment of a premium hands-free and cord-free mobile calling experience,” said Collette Bunton, Logitech vice president of sales and marketing for the Americas Region. “We have tremendous respect for Verizon Wireless´ service, and are thrilled to offer our extensive audio expertise to their broad customer base.”
Logitech headsets in Verizon Wireless branded packaging are available in nearly 2,000 locations across the country.

In addition to its innovative technology, Logitech´s Mobile Traveler SE headset is stylish and comfortable. It is lightweight — weighing only 0.6 ounces — and features a comfortable over-ear design, with a cushioned ear pad that rests on the outer ear instead of inside it, and an over-ear soft bendable rubber earpiece, which comfortably and securely wraps around the ear. Logitech´s flip clip design makes it quick and easy to flip the earpiece to put it on either ear. The headset offers up to seven hours of continuous talk time and 300 hours of standby time.

At its core, WindStop technology consists of a durable and porous material surrounding the headset microphone; the sound of a voice passes through the material, but disruptive air currents such as wind are blocked. Logitech headsets with WindStop technology offer exceptional wind-noise reduction without added weight or reduced battery life, traits that hamper many headsets that use DSP (digital signal processor) technology to reduce wind noise.
