The only things in life that are guaranteed are death, taxes, and kids reliably entertained by something incredibly loud and annoying. It’s a tablet for this generation, but instead of taking their tech away from them for some peace and quiet, you can just give them more because Logitech’s new Zone Learn headphones are specifically designed to survive the abuse kids take on their piling up devices.
The Logitech Zone Learn are based on the wired version of the Logitech Zone headphones, specially designed for returning to the crowded office routine, where video calls (which might as well have been just an email) still are more often than ever. The $129 Logitech Zone features a fold-down boom mic with noise cancellation so other voices in the office can’t be heard in the background of a call, as well as an inline remote on the headphone cord with dedicated buttons to mute or end calls.
The Logitech Zone Learn look very similar to the adult-focused Zone headphones, but instead of being designed for the workplace, they’ve been redesigned as a more affordable solution for schools and feature several improvements to make them more suitable for the younger base.
Aside from a chic blue and orange finish, the Zone Learn headphones feature advanced adjustment options to ensure a comfortable fit for users from kindergarten through Grade 12 (good luck getting a teen to wear these). The fold-down boom mic is still included, and the Zone Learn’s drivers are tuned to enhance speech instead of music. as the headphones are specially designed for video calls or apps Help children learn to read. Basically, they are intended for every situation where children must be able to hear and participate clearly even in a noisy classroom environment.
Zone Learn headphones feature “reinforced sub-assemblies” to withstand drops from your desk and are designed to be easily wiped clean thousands of times with no visible wear. They also offer improved repairability, with two earcup style options – on-ear and over-ear – that can be removed and reinstalled with a simple twist.
Logitech also offers three Four-foot cable options for Zone Learn headphones: USB-A for older laptops, USB-C for more modern laptops and mobile devices like tablets and smartphones, and a classic 3.5mm audio cable for connecting to devices that still have a have a headphone jack.
To simplify the management of potentially hundreds of headphones at a single school, the Zone Learn are offered with only one headphone cable, eliminating the need for charging. This approach also ensures that dead batteries or Bluetooth connectivity issues will never hamper their use, and you won’t find a single shortcut button anywhere on the headphones that could easily distract children.
At launch, Logitech Zone Learn will be available exclusively for schools and other educational institutions and is coming preconfigured with one of the ear cup styles and one of the three cable options (although replacements for both can be purchased separately) for just $35. Logitech also plans to sell the Zone Learn headphones individually starting sometime “early summer,” and while they only include the over-ear earcups, they’ll come with both a USB-C and 3.5mm Cable supplied for $40.
