Logitech launched a kid-friendly version of its Zone headset called learning area, specially designed for their educational needs. While it’s been created to be durable like many other kids’ devices – it’s even claimed to be “chew-proof” – the company has also made it easy to replace parts that commonly fail or break for children’s headphones. ‘on board. Specifically, Logitech has made it possible to swap out its ear pads and cables, not only so schools can replace them if they become frayed or destroyed, but also so they can choose between over-ear pads and over-ear headphones, as well as between 3.5mm aux, USB-A and USB-C cables, depending on what they need.
The on-ear option offers better noise isolation, while the on-ear offers greater environmental awareness. Meanwhile, the cable options will allow educators to use the headset with different types of devices. Logitech says Zone Learn’s audio drivers are tuned for voice clarity rather than music because they’re optimized for lessons that involve speaking, such as for students learning a new language. It’s also equipped with a 120-degree swivel boom mic for lessons that require students to interact with the class.
Zone Learn will be available worldwide this spring for prices starting at $35. Logitech will also launch a package with an over-ear cushion model, a 3.5mm auxiliary, and a USB-C cable in early summer for $40.
