SINGAPORE— July 20, 2010 — Bringing crystal-clear audio for your Internet and video calls, music and movies, Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) today announced two new headsets. Featuring support for super wideband audio, the Logitech® USB Headset H530 and the Logitech® Laptop Headset H555 sound so clear it’s almost like you’re in the same room as the people you call. The lightweight Laptop Headset H555 folds flat and easily fits into the included case. The USB Headset H530 offers laser-tuned drivers for exceptional audio quality. Both headsets are compatible with Logitech Vid™ HD, Skype™ 4.0 for Windows® or later, and Skype 2.8 for Mac® or later.

“We’ve learned from customers that better quality audio is one the most important factors in selecting which headset is right for them,” said Prasenjit Sarkar, Director of South Asia. “By supporting super wideband audio, the new Logitech headsets H555 and H530 help make your Internet and video calls sound crystal clear.”

Super wideband audio — developed by Skype® — helps make your voice more natural by transmitting sound on a large frequency range. Plus, super wideband audio uses less bandwidth and can even adjust in real time when there is more traffic on the network.
