Tips for Choosing School Headsets

School Headsets
Headsets have long been used in the classroom for computer delivered and interactive digital Instruction. Now with new Common Core requirements, school headsets are required for testing. All Common Core tests will be computer based. These headsets have microphones so students may listen and respond to the computer. This also reduces disturbances to students near them by keeping escaping volume levels low. School headsets are also used in libraries and for general use in the classroom. The recent explosion in online instruction requires well made, highly durable school headsets.

Finding the right headsets for your specific application is important. You will want to ensure that you select a headset that is compatible with your device or machine and that it is age-appropriate for the students that will be using them.

With the rise in popularity of mobile tablets in the classroom, many different activities can now be completed on a mobile device or tablet instead of a desktop computer. You can save yourself some time and avoid returns by taking the time to examine connectivity requirements for your equipment. This way you can choose directly from solutions and options that work best for you.

Headsets for schools are available with a number of different ways to connect them to your equipment. One of the most popular ways is a USB connection. They are compatible with most machines and plug and play with most devices that have a USB plug in. In most cases, this will eliminate the need for any additional drivers or software.

There is also the more traditional 2 plug headsets that connect to computers or devices using two separate plugs, one for speakers and one for the microphone. These work on more traditional desktop computers in learning environments.

The newest connection is a single 3.5mm plug in called a TRRS adapter. TRRS stands for tip, ring, ring, sleeve. This means the adapter has one plug that connects both the microphone and headphone for the headset. These are popular on new devices and perfect for schools using school headsets for iPads.

Once you have determined what connection works best for you, you will need to decide if you want the microphone built in-line with the wire that connects to the device or a boom microphone that is affixed to the headphone. There are benefits to each but it comes down to what personal preferences teachers and students have.
