ON EAR HEADPHONES

Using on-ear classroom headphones is an economical solution for schools and educational centers to meet the demands of 21st-century education, technology, and testing requirements. The ear cushions rest on the outer ear, making the headphone light, comfortable and less prone to overheating the ears. The on-ear headphone style also allows the wearer the benefit from hearing the outside environment.
Selected with classrooms, learning and language labs, training facilities and educational touring in mind, Encore brings you a large selection from best brands in the business: Hamilton, Califone, AVID Education and our own designs. Whether you need disposable, multi-use with replaceable parts or easy to clean and disinfect on-ear headphones, our knowledgeable customer care team will guide you through determining your school’s needs and set you up with the audio equipment that fits your budget. Many early learning headphones, pre-school headphones, and early education headphones in this category meet the PARCC and Common Core testing requirements.

OVER-EAR HEADPHONES

Our over-ear headphones create an enriched, personal hearing environment. These are ideal for educational settings as they provide high-quality sound with the durable designs for day-in-day-out use. Selected with classrooms, learning and language labs, training facilities and educational touring in mind, Encore brings you a large selection from best brands in the business: Hamilton, Califone and AVID Education. The headphone earcups provide ambient noise-reducing qualities to allow the user to focus on the audio rather than external sounds. Whether you need stereo, mono or dual stereo/mono headphones with or without volume control, our knowledgeable customer care team will guide you through determining your facility’s needs and set you up with the audio equipment that fits your budget. Most headphones in this category meet the PARCC and Common Core testing requirements.
As a quick rule of thumb, [block]3[/block] are ideal for listening to single source recordings such as content for language learning and development (ELL/ELD) activities, speech pathology, and lesson videos.
[block]4[/block] are ideal for educational gaming, online learning, music appreciation classes and 21st-century learning using mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.
It is important to know if the audio source is a mono or stereo player as well since plugging a stereo headphone into a mono source will result in sound only coming from one of the two earcups. These are great for early learning, pre-school, and educational settings.

HEADSETS WITH MICROPHONES

Encore helps you keep it simple or go high tech when your school is in need of [block]5[/block]. Consider our many selections of early learning headphones and educational headsets. Selected with classrooms, learning and language labs, training facilities and educational touring in mind, Encore brings you a large selection from the best brands in the business: Hamilton, Califone, Cyber Acoustics and AVID Education.
Simple and economical earbuds or on-ear headsets with a boom or an inline mic can help your school engage in English Language Arts, language learning and development (ELL/ELD) activities, speech pathology, and other individualized instructional activities.
Schools with larger learning centers and bigger budgets may want to consider [block]6[/block] with mono/stereo, volume control or noise control options to provide the optimum individual learning environment from early learning through High School.
If your school is planning ahead for future PARCC and Common Core testing, legislation will begin requiring headphones with microphones for speaking and listening testing.

 

 

CLASSROOM EARBUDS
Should I buy classroom or disposable earbuds?
Classroom Ear Buds are sturdier and designed for long term usage.
[block]8[/block]Bulk Disposable Earbuds are priced LOW and still often last as long as the classroom versions, just without a warranty.  Great for testing, short-term use or giveaways.

CALIFONE CLS SERIES – WIRELESS

The Califone CLS 7xx Series of wireless Headphones are ideal for language learning, literacy groups, ELL / ELD applications, story-time, audio book listening, and library uses.

The headphone reception range is 100 feet.  The color-coded transmitters match the color-coded headphones for easy use.  This helps create flexible learning situations where the students do not need to be next to the media player.
There is no limit to the number of headphones which can be added, only that they must match the same color-coded transmitter frequency and users stay within 100 feet of the transmitter.
Since each colored headphone operates on its own independent frequency, three different groups can enjoy wireless learning in the same room without any interference.

You can purchase listening centers and add headphones or purchase the headphones and transmitters separately.
