Whilst on the subject of the earcups. The earcups have controls on the outside of them, for turning the volume up, down, muting the microphone. Now pressing these buttons you can hear the button presses through the earcup, but personally I don't find this an issue. I don't need to mute my mic when I'm recording Screencasts. And If I do need to do something else whilst doing my Sceencasts I usually just pause my recording and then that way I can just carry on again from that exact point. I do like the controls on the earcups rather than the cord, has sometimes the remote control fob on the cable can make the cable heavy and this can then transfer more sound through the cable as the remote is dragging over your desk. I also tried pressing one of the buttons on the earcup while I was recording (to see if the mic would pick the sound up) and I couldn't hear it on the recording.
The cable on the H540's is 6.15 feet or 1.8 meters. The cable is thick and is of a good quality and in light of this should last. Unlike some of the thin cable that sometimes gets used on other headsets.Read more ›
Playing back music is simply 'ok'; the audio lacks decent bass, mids and high range - it is very plain indeed. Wish I hadn't chucked the packaging, otherwise I'd send them back.
- Clear sound over large range of frequencies.
- Base, which is not too much overwhelming.
- Are extremely comfortable, they fit very nicely on the ears and so after a few minutes you really tend to forget that you're even wearing them.
- The price, which is really affordable. I tried much more expensive headphones and they were horrible compared to these in terms of all these aspects.
The only downside is that this is:
- USB headphones, thus playing music on the phone isn't that great, you need a micro-USB to USB converter, which I not always remember to take.
-One more point to mention is that these are not noise isolating headphones, thus I do not recommend wearing these on the plane, train or quite places, as they will leak sound. Sometimes, on the other hand this is OK, as when you want to listen for music but at the same time be able to talk to other people.
The headset is driverless meaning it's plug and play. The drawback is if something doesn't work then forget about software fixes from the Logitech website, you will have to go in Window's infamous Control panel and head to "Sound & Audio Devices." On both XP and Windows 7, I felt the detection was fiddly (not the USB part of it). Audio from an ongoing movie or Flash iPlayer would NOT automatically divert to the headset, so in the case of a movie you'd have to restart it and for iPlayer you may have to refresh or worstm restart the browser (which may contain 12 active tabs - me). Results in Chrome and Firefox differ. However when I did get the audio out, unplugging the USB headset would not result in audio going back to the laptop's speakers. Rebooting your laptop MIGHT help. If it doesn't then return it asap!
Note: In Windows 7 and Macbook Pro, you have to set the "Logitech H540 USB" as "Default" audio (not "default communication" as Windows 7 did in my case). This way when you plug or unplug the headset, you will get the expected behaviour from the laptop's speakers. I think it is unacceptable in this day and age that a USB earphone cannot replicate (without hassle) the old functionality of 3.5mm earphones.
