After years, perhaps decades of trusting Logitech for quality products, the change comes.  Their pointing devices are excellent, and I still stand by them.  On that allegiance, I made the mistake of thinking they would be as excellent at making other hardware.  When it comes to Wireless Headsets, they suck.  The "documentation" that comes in the box is literally written in hand gestures and pictures.  I would gather this was an attempt to avoid costs associated with printing instructions in multiple languages.  Bah!  Even worse, you'd expect to be able to download a pdf of said instructions from the manufacturer's website.  Certain pages on Logitech's website do tell you how to do this. but the links they point to simply don't exist.  There is very, very little review available on this product on the web, and even less that is actually useful.

Looking for a wireless headset is difficult...web searches easily confuse headsets (with mic) with headphones (without mic).  You also run into a bunch of these headsets that are mono, just one speaker...that won't work well for FPS gaming.

I do have to say, the H600 worked very well at first, long enough (weeks) to make me throw away all of the packaging.  So if you only need a Wireless Headset for a month or so, and have $50 or so to spend, go ahead and buy it.  If you want something that lasts, don't buy that, and I still haven't found a decent one.  The best option might be to buy separate mic & headphones. I don't know.

I was thinking of getting one of these as my partner has a WoW creative wireless headset that im extremely jealous of.
She gets to walk around the house while listening to music or listening in to the servers... I would have loved to find an affordable wireless headset with mic and that logitech H600 seemed the only one i could justify spending money on.
Glad i saw this post and sorry for reviving old threads , But its good info for me.
Did you end up getting anything else?

I barely remember this headset.  Looks like they didn't last very long.  After that, I never did go for combining headphone and mic again.  You can use anything for a mic pretty much, which is what I do, but you do want a decent set of headphones.  I always found a certain model of Koss headphones from Walmart to be an excellent value for about $20, when you consider how long they last, and how good they sound.  Sorry, I don't have the model number, but they lasted me well over 5 years, and when they finally went out, Walmart had another pair on the shelves for about the same $20, as far as I remember.  These are wired, over the ear type headphones.  Looking at Walmart.com, Koss has several offerings now.  I'm not in the market at the moment, but if I were, I would certainly risk $25 or $30 on Koss before throwing away $50 or $60 on Logitech.
