How To Add Color To Your Classroom

Picking the right color

Studies show that certain colors in the classroom can maximize information retention and stimulate participation. Primary colors are all good options for your classroom: red, yellow, green, blue.

You can bring in these colors as accent walls, bookcases, or motivational signs and boards, or even plants. Consider adding pops of these colors with classroom supplies like our colorful headphone sets.

Red brings in high energy and creativity. Yellow help facilitate collaboration. Green helps to relax and calm great for a reading nook or class library. Blue helps with calming and inspiring.

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.

WIRELESS HEADPHONES

Wireless headphones provide flexibility for those who do a lot of personal listening. No wires to tangle you up allows for greater mobility to listen, learn, play or work.

4 Ways To Increase Productivity With High-End Headphones

Staying productive at home or at work can be a challenge, especially in a busy, noisy environment. Many of us use headphones and music to drown out other noises, but sometimes, the headphones can actually get in the way of a productive schedule. However, you don’t have to let your listening experience get in the way of your work. Here’s our guide to hacking your high-end headphones for a productive workday or office space.

  1. Make sure they are comfortable.

If you like to listen to music while you work, you’ll need a pair that can sit on your head and ears comfortably for a long period of time. You’ll want to learn what style of headphone you like the most, and ask yourself: earbuds, on-ear, or over-ear headphones?

These are the three most common styles for headphones, and each has their own unique characteristics. When it comes to comfort, it’s important to learn what you like the most for your ears. No matter what, having a great pair of headphones will keep you from fidgeting with them, or from taking them on or off while you work. A comfortable pair will save you time and money in the long run.

Even if you’re not listening to anything, wearing a comfortable pair of headphones can psychologically keep you in the zone, especially since they dull or cancel outside noise. In addition, people are less likely to bother you when you’re wearing your headphones, so they can serve as a great productive tool whether or not you’re playing music.

  1. Purchase a pair with noise-cancelling or volume control to ensure healthy listening habits.

Many of us are guilty of pushing the volume in our headphones to a high level, especially when we try to drown out any outside or ambient noise. But this can be damaging to our hearing in the long run, especially if you frequently use your headphones day after day. And once you lose your hearing, you can’t get it back. With a lack of hearing quality, work can be tough for those who rely on their hearing.

High-quality headphones can help make sure that your hearing stays healthy, especially if you look for headphones with volume control and noise-cancelling features. Noise-cancelling headphones–like the Califone 1017AV headphones–help diminish outside noise while enhancing the audio you are listening to, which will keep you from increasing the volume. Volume control options will also help maintain your hearing by putting a threshold on how high you can raise the volume. With these two components, you can stay healthy and productive at once. Avid Education SM-25 headphones or the Califone 3068-AV headphones are other great high quality headphone choices.

  1. Opt for dual-audio headphones if you switch from mono to stereo in your work.

For any worker who might be listening to mono or stereo at any given moment, having a pair of headphones that can switch seamlessly from one audio type to another will ensure greater productivity and efficient workflow. For example, an audio engineer might want mono for spoken word, lecture, or pure vocal recordings, but stereo for the entire ensemble with a band. Even a college student, who might listen to music while they work on their math homework, but switch to online language lessons for his or her Spanish class, can benefit from high-quality headphones that are capable of covering these audio needs. Many headphones like the Hamilton-Buhl Trios can help make switching between the two easy for the user.

By purchasing a pair of headphones that works for you and not against you, you can stay focused as you work, anywhere and anytime. To learn more about the headphones we provide, contact us. We can help you find the right pair for your work.
