Thankful Contest

During this time of year, we’re reminded of all the people we’re thankful for; friends, family, and favorite teachers! Educators do so much for children all year. They not only teach, they listen, support, and inspire kids every day. We want to give back to the people who dedicate their time to helping students, and celebrate everything they do!

We’re asking for your nominations of anyone in education who has had a positive impact on you or someone you know. This could be a teacher, administrator, librarian, etc., who has been especially helpful or inspiring. Just comment on our posts through Christmas, tagging your favorite educator, and tell us why you’re thankful for them. Maybe they provided extra tutoring, or helped with SAT prep. Share your story! We will be giving headphones away to three winners, and we may have a few surprises as well!

And if you’re a school administrator looking for a way to use some of your end-of-year budget on your teachers, we have lots of the top brands they’ll appreciate. Let’s break down the top headphones your staff will love!

ON-EAR HEADPHONES – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW!

How do I choose between “on-ear“ headphones versus “over- ear” or simple earbuds?

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.

Over-ear headphones and headsets will block external sounds.

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: Hamiltonbuhl, Califone, AVID Education , Cyber Acoustics , Thinkwrite , Andrea Communications 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 classroom headphones in this category meet the PARCC and Common Core testing requirements.

TRRS means : Tip Ring Ring Sleeve – 4 conductors allowing stereo audio plus a mono microphone input.

DUAL 3.5mm

Typically found on desktop computers and plugs directly into the sound card.

Ensure the mic and stereo left and right cables are correctly connected!

 

 

USB

Connected directly to your computer USB port.

Looking to avoid broken headphone jacks?

Looking to avoid expensive repairs to your electronic devices caused by headphone jack or pin breakage?

Check out Avid Education flexible breakaway TRRS adapter-which helps prevent pin breakage inside expensive electronic devices when a student pulls mistakenly yanks the cord when standing rapidly or when a device falls on the ground.

Inspired by the swimming motion of fish, the AVID Fishbone bends in the middle across the ribs while rotating in the device’s jack.
