Review: Logitech H390 USB Headset

From www.Logitech.com
A headset! A headset!  My kingdom for a headset!

That's how I felt last week, when my kids wanted to play Torchlight 2 with me co-op online, but I needed a headset for that to work properly.  I ended up using my husband's headset, but that gets old very quickly.

I would like to say that I ran out the door and got myself a new headset, but I didn't need to.  While I played with the kids, my husband walked out the door and drove to Micro Center, where he bought me a brand-new headset - the Logitech H390 USB Headset!

I've used this headset since last Friday, and I must tell you that so far I absolutely love it!  I needed to stretch the headband a bit, to keep it from pushing against my glasses.  But otherwise, no problems whatsoever.  I have used the headset to game, to listen to music from YouTube and Google Music, and to make phone calls.  That's right - now I can use Google Talk to make phone calls directly from my computer.


I spoke to my friend, Ann, yesterday for over an hour on the headset.  No headache, no problems hearing her, and no problems with her hearing me - a complete win situation!

Technically, this headset is not circumaural (unless you have exceptionally small ears) - the headphones sit on top of the ear.  I like this because if the headphones go around my ears, then it sits directly on top of my glasses.   The microphone moves up and down smoothly, and does not pick up on most extraneous noises.

Overall, I give this headset 4 1/2 stars out of 5 stars.

(Sorry, but I haven't got the graphics worked out yet on the new Blogger template.)


  1. I should get one of these so I can do Google Talk on the computer too (that is, when we're not YET AGAIN on bandwidth curfew and can actually get online...don't make me tell you how much I hate satellite internet).

    1. Can you get another type of Internet at your home? I agree, satellites are not the preferred method of Interneting.


Feel free to agree or disagree, just be polite.
