Logitech Zone Wireless 2: The Ultimate Business Headset for Enhanced Productivity?

The Logitech Zone Wireless 2 (Amazon Affiliate) is a cutting-edge business headset with exceptional audio quality, advanced noise cancellation, and seamless connectivity. It is certified for business use and compatible with most video conferencing platforms, making it an ideal choice for professionals. It arrived 4 weeks ago, and I could test it on the road when doing hybrid flex work and also in my garden (Yes! Spring is here, and it is warm), where I cannot control background noise as easily at my desk in my home office.

New & Improved Headset compared to Zone Wireless 1

The Zone Wireless 2 offers several improvements over its predecessor, including advanced call clarity, hybrid active noise cancellation (ANC), and replaceable parts. Zone Wireless 2 offers a longer wireless range of up to 170 feet, compared to Zone Wireless 1’s range of up to 100 feet. The Zone Wireless 2 also has a longer battery life, with up to 40 hours of music listening and 18 hours of talk time. Zone Wireless 2 features advanced noise cancellation technology, including 3 different ways of Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) – which is innovative –  and a 4-microphone array designed to capture and remove background noise. People on the other side of the call will hear you better now; it is not only about your background noise cancellation.  In a nutshell: Go for Zone Wireless 2!

Compatibility

Zone Wireless 2 works with computers running Windows, macOS or ChromeOS via USB-C, USB-A, Bluetooth and Bluetooth-enabled iOS or Android devices.

Smart Controls

The headset has smart controls that allow users to quickly answer or end calls, adjust volume, and mute the microphone. You can pause music, skip to next track and switch between ANC and transparency mode. The sensors know when the headset is removed and automatically pause music or video, providing a seamless user experience. Usually, I move the microphone boom arm up and down to turn on/off mute.

Connectivity Options

 The headset features Bluetooth 5.2  wireless range of up to 50 meters (164 feet) without visual disruptions, providing users with the freedom to move around while on a call. It also comes with a USB-C receiver for a reliable and stable connection. Supported Bluetooth Profiles: A2DP, AVRCP, HFP, HSP, SPP

How do I switch the audio on my Zone Wireless 2 headset between two simultaneously connected devices?

You can switch from the USB receiver to Bluetooth: Play audio on the connected Bluetooth device. Audio will start playing automatically as the Bluetooth connection takes priority over the USB receiver.

Headset Software: Logi Tune offers personalized Audio 

 The Logi Tune software allows users to customize their headset experience, including personalized audio settings, EQ (only in Android and iOS App, not Windows11 or MacOS), and noise cancellation levels. The software also updates firmware to ensure the headset remains up-to-date with the latest features and improvements.

Audio Quality

The Zone Wireless 2 features premium personalized audio with advanced call clarity, ensuring that every conversation is crystal clear. The headset’s 40mm ear speakers provide a satisfying audio experience, while the personal EQ feature allows users to customize their audio settings to suit their preferences.

If you want a best-in-class Bluetooth Wireless Headset, Zone Wireless does not play in the same range as Sennheiser Momentum 4 Wireless or Sony WH-1000XM5.

Do you enjoy listening to music a bit louder? Then Zone Wireless 2 might be your friend. It is louder than others—if you want, and “Volume Boost” is activated in Logi Tune.

Logitech Sync

Logitech Sync is a platform that allows IT administrators to deploy with confidence, managing and monitoring headsets across the organization. This feature is handy for large enterprises with multiple users. With Logitech Sync Admins can also manage personal devices like Logitech Webcams or Headsets, not only Rooms devices like Logitech Rally Bar.

Two-Way Noise-Free Calls with Superior Noise Canceling Mics

 The headset features two-way noise-free calls, suppressing ambient noise on both ends of a call. This ensures that conversations are clear and uninterrupted, even in noisy environments. Remember to switch “Advanced Call Clarity” in the Logi Tune App. This feature is compelling and helpful; I rarely haven’t seen it in any headset on the market. If you are on a call and in a silent environment and cannot hear the other party speaking in a noisy environment, Enhanced Call Clarity helps you hear the other party more clearly.

Low mode is recommended for normal office noise, and High mode is recommended for loud outside noises such as on the street, at train stations, construction sites, or at the airport. Don’t use both options in silent environments when you record podcasts or run a webinar,

The Zone Wireless 2 has 4 noise-canceling mics that provide superior noise cancellation. Logitech Zone Wireless 2 has three types of noise cancellation technology: Microphone Noise Cancellation, Background ANC and Adaptive ANC

Sustainability

 The Zone Wireless 2 allows users to customize the experience with replaceable parts, including earpads and headband. This feature ensures that the headset remains comfortable and functional over time.

Charging Options

The headset can be charged via USB-C or USB-A, providing users with flexibility and convenience. 2 hours for a full charge and
5 minute quick charge gives up to 1 hour of talk time.  There is an option to purchase a wireless charger.

My verdict

In conclusion, the Logitech Zone Wireless 2 is a premium business headset with exceptional audio quality, advanced noise cancellation with 3 different types, and seamless, stable connectivity. Its long battery life, replaceable parts, and certified carbon-neutral status make it an ideal choice for businesses investing in a sustainable and high-quality headset solution. It features 180° rotating speakers, a silicone-wrapped headband, and an adjustable headband design, which is very comfortable and looks great. Please check if the pressure on your ears is not too intense. The headset has physical buttons, which I still enjoy, and a touch-sensitive area for control – best of both worlds. It offers multi-pairing, easy setup, and wireless call answering for computers and smartphones. You won’t find the latest Bluetooth 5.3; you get 5.2,  and can connect to 2 different devices simultaneously. EPOS IMPACT 1000 would make a difference here for these 2 aspects, it connects to 3 device with multi-pairing. I have never missed busylights which are missing here.  Nevertheless, Logitech always makes a difference with many helpful features and IT Admin options in their rich Logitech Sync and Logi Tune Apps. You experience a lot of noise from people in your meetings and calls? Then don’t look any further, here Logitech Zone Wireless 2 can shine, this is a USP.
