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

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.

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.

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.
