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.
