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 classroom headphones in this category meet the PARCC and Common Core testing requirements.
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, monaural headphones are ideal for listening to single source recordings such as content for language learning and development (ELL/ELD) activities, speech pathology, and lesson videos.
Stereo headphones 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.
HEADSETS WITH MICROPHONES
Encore helps you keep it simple or go high tech when your school is in need of headsets with microphones. 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 higher end headsets with mono/stereo, volume control or noise control options to provide the optimum individual learning environment.
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 EAR BUDS
Should I buy classroom or disposable earbuds?
Classroom Ear Buds are sturdier and designed for longer term usage.
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 give-aways.
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.
Encore’s selected systems are compatible for SMART/HDTV, DVD, Blu-Ray, gaming systems, computers, tablets, TV, mobile phones and music devices. Our wireless headphones are ideal for language learning, literacy groups, ELL / ELD applications, audio book listening, and testing centers. Our brand options allow from 100′ to 300’ reception range from the digital wireless transmitter.
Choose from Califone’s color coded transmission headphones or Hamilton’s multi-channel Bluetooth transmitter headphones; both allow up to four different color coded channels of simultaneous audio listening. Headphones are sold separately or in systems of four.
