Here are 4 things to look for when buying school headphones or school headsets. In many classrooms, headphones are used as part of audio learning activities with a wide array of applications that have different equipment and compatibility requirements.
1. Are they Age Appropriate?
Because there are so many different sizes and styles of school headphones available, you should always be sure the headphone models you select are age appropriate for the students who will be using them. Pick a style that is comfortable and easy for students to adjust & wear.
2. What Design Do You Have in Mind?
Today there are several new models and styles that have come on to the market. It is easier now to find a design that fits your learning environment. You can choose from different designs depending on planned audio learning initiatives. Many of the new headphones are designed with small ear pieces and headbands. These allow for a snug yet comfortable fit. Others have wide headbands and bigger ear pieces that help to cover the students. This can be helpful in blocking out unwanted background noise and distractions. If students will be using online communication apps or language learning tools, choose a good school headset that includes a microphone for interactive communication.
3. What is your school budget?
It is a good idea to know ahead of time what you would like to spend for each student or pair as you begin your search for the perfect school headphone or school headset solution. If you are going to making a large school or district wide purchase, you may qualify for a volume discount. Volume discounts are beneficial in bringing the cost down and allow you to get premium school headphones that deliver premium sound and durability.
4. Are They Compatible with the School’s Equipment & Devices?
Most schools have a number of diffferent devices. What is compatibile with one of your computers, may not be compatible with tablets. Be sure to check compatibility with your devices before making a purchase. One example, a popular connection on new laptops, tablets and smartphones include a TRRS adapter that connects a single 3.5mm plug to both the microphone and headphone. A standard 3.5 mm adapter works with most devices that have a standard headphone input. You can also choose, USB, Dual Plug and Multi-plug options that enable cross compatibility with multiple devices.
