Logitech Wireless Headphones for iPod

Bluteooth ends tangled earphone cable misery?

Over to the headphones, which sport a pair of large, 5cm/2in speakers connected by one of those bands that tuck over the back of your ears and round behind your next. I wasn't sure about them at first but they provided comfortable to wear. And, out walking, they didn't fall out as I find in-the-ear 'phones often do. They have some heft to them - there's a rechargeable battery on board, after all - but not so much as to weigh you down; I've tried headphones with integrated Flash-based MP3 players that have felt heavier than this set. They feel very balanced, and I wonder if Logitech hasn't split the battery in two, one for each side.

The headphones are visually attractive too, decked out in grey and white, or in black to match whichever colour iPod you have. The right-hand speaker is where all the action is: a central connect button surrounded by a circle of four controls for volume up and down, and track skip forward and back. The connect button doubles up as a play/pause control.

I'd have liked the controls to be raised further from the surface of the speaker casing, and for the volume buttons to lack the indentations placed exactly at 12 O'Clock and 6 O'Clock, just where you naturally reach to press.

The headphones use the same power connector as the transmitter, saving Logitech the need to ship two mains adaptors in the box. That's smart, but the company has gone a step further and fitted the recharger with two outputs to you can charge both the 'phones and the transmitter simultaneously. Very good thinking, folks.

Like the WMS' components, the headphones and transmitter pair automatically, though you can force a manual pairing if, say, you want to temporarily connect your 'phones to a second transmitter. It's easy enough to do and it works a treat.

So do the headphones. Across a range of genres the sound is clear and crisp with a solid feel to the bass. For me, this is a very good-sounding set of 'phones. Sound quality is dependent on your source material, but I didn't detect any audible degradation due to the need to re-digitise and compress an analogue signal to send it over the Bluetooth link.
