Logitech C922 Pro HD Stream Webcam and Logitech H150 Headset are Work-From-Home, Livestreaming, and Online Learning Essentials

The COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing quarantine to prevent the spread of the virus have truly changed our lives.

Since physical distancing has become a must, work-from-home arrangement and online learning have a become part of the new norm for corporate professionals and students, respectively.

This sudden change in our lives has brought about the need for new gadgets that can help us be better connected with our workmates, professors, and classmates through virtual meetings, online classes, and video calls.

Good thing, Logitech - which is one of the longest-running and most trusted makers of computer accessories and peripherals - was quick to answer this new consumer demand and recently released new products that can help us accomplish and achieve more despite the challenges of the pandemic.

Allow me to show you two new Logitech devices that can be considered work-from-home and online learning essentials for many Filipinos. You can even use these for livestreaming if you're just starting to get into it as another income opportunity in these trying times.

If your desktop doesn't come with a webcam or if your laptop's built-in camera is not that clear, then you might want to invest in this peripheral by Logitech.

This webcam has three key features that are clearly printed on its packaging so you know exactly what you can get from it.

1. High Frame Rate Video Streaming

Logitech C922 Pro HD Stream supports 1080p FullHD 30 frames per second and 720p HD 30/60fps video capture for clearer videos during virtual meetings.

Having such high resolution plus autofocus capability, this webcam can also be used for livestreaming on Facebook and Youtube, which can help you build a following and eventually create another income stream.

2. Stereo Audio with Dual Microphones

Complementing the high video quality, Logitech C922 Pro HD Stream also offers good audio quality with its two microphones, which can eliminate the need for a separate mic set-up.

What I particularly like about it, though, is its active noise-cancelling feature that automatically filters out unwanted background sounds from your audio. This feature definitely comes in handy if there are various sources of noise inside or around your home while you're livestreaming.

3. Logitech Capture Software

As soon you plug Logitech C922 Pro HD Stream to your desktop or laptop's USB port, you will be prompted to install the new Logitech Capture Software that lets you record FullHD or HD videos without using complicated editing programs. It also has built-in image control settings - including exposure, contrast, and saturation - allowing you to fine-tune your videos even before you start shooting.

The official retail package, which sells for PHP 5,650, includes the Logitech C922 Pro HD Stream Webcam unit itself, the user guide, XSplit Livestreaming and Recording Software 3-month Premium License Key courtesy of Logitech, and a free high-quality tripod with swivel mount.

Logitech C922 Pro HD Stream Webcam can be mounted on top of your laptop's screen or it can be set farther away from your PC since it has a fairly long 1.5-meter cable.

At the bottom of the device, there's a screw mount where you can attach the provided mini tripod.

Although it's small, this tripod is crafted from aluminum and stainless steel giving it a look and feel of elegance and durability. It also has legs that can extend to make it taller. The head swivels, allowing you to position the webcam at various angles.

If you're wondering, Logitech C922 Pro HD Stream Webcam can definitely be used with Zoom software for your virtual meetings. I've tried it myself and it works flawlessly.

I would advise using it in a well-lit environment, though, or using Zoom's Cinnamon filter while increasing the brightness of your laptop's screen if you don't have good ambient light to further boost the image quality.

Are you currently looking for a budget-friendly yet reliable headset that you can use for work, school, or play? Here's one that you might want to check out.

Logitech H150 Headset

Selling for only PHP 800, this headset has several key selling points that make it a great value-for-money purchase if you need one for your virtual meetings or online classes.

Logitech H150 Headset

The official retail package comes with only two items: The unit itself and the concise user guide. No frills. I think this also helps minimize the carbon footprint of the product, which somehow helps the environment.

Logitech H150 Headset

Having used it for a couple of days now, I would say that my favorite feature of Logitech H150 Headset would be its great audio quality. For such an affordable headset, it delivers good bass and bright trebles, which makes it good for listening to music or watching videos on Youtube.

For audio geeks, here are the technical specifications of this product:

Input Impedance: 22 Ohms
Sensitivity (headphone): 122 dB +/-3 dB
Sensitivity (microphone): -44 dBV/Pa +/- 2.5 dB
Frequency response (Headset): 20 Hz to 20 kHz

It also has a 1.8-meter cord, which is long enough to allow you to move around your desk without having to remove the headset. If you find it too long, you can always use the provided wire to tie it and make it shorter.

The headband is adjustable so it can fit practically everyone. The ear-cups are cushioned and they also move a bit, allowing for a more comfortable fit when worn over the ears.

The built-in microphone with 100 Hz to 6.5 kHz frequency response rotates so you can position it close to your mouth during calls or tilt it upwards when you're just listening to music or to the speaker in meetings.

I also like that it has built-in controls for increasing and decreasing volume and for turning off or turning on the microphone. I find these very handy and I actually missed seeing them on many headsets these days.

One thing I want to note about Logitech H150 is that it has separate plugs for the earphones and the microphone. If you're using a desktop, this should be good since most CPUs have separate jacks for mic and audio. However, if you're using a laptop that has a combo-jack then you would have to use a soundcard - like what's shown in the image above - to maximize the features of this headset.
