A wireless headset is a good investment for anyone who spends a lot of time working at a Mac on the desktop or in the field -- particularly if the computer is used as a business telephony device. Dedicated computer headsets, like the ones made by Logitech, don't use Bluetooth, which means that you won't be able to use them with your cell phone. However, you won't have to worry about pairing them to the wrong device or experiencing interference from other Bluetooth devices around you. Logitech wireless computer headsets are easy to install and use.

Plug the included USB cable's small connector into the charging port on your headset and plug the other end into an open USB jack on your Mac. Leave it plugged in for at least three hours to charge.

Unplug the cable from the headset and computer.

Plug the USB transmitter into an open USB port on your computer. Do not plug it into a USB hub, though. It should go into your Mac.

Turn the power switch on the headset to the "On" position. A small light on the headset illuminates. The headset should now work with your Mac computer. If it doesn't and you can't use it to talk or to listen, try adjusting your computer's settings.

Adjusting Mac Audio Settings

Click the "Apple" menu and click "System Preferences."

Click the "Sound" icon followed by the "Output" tab. Click the entry for the Logitech wireless headset.

Click the "Input" tab and click the entry for the Logitech wireless headset.

Close the System Preferences window.


This procedure works with Macs running OS X 10.5 and higher and the Logitech H600 and H800 wireless headsets. It may also work with other Logitech wireless headsets or versions of the Mac operating system.
