The Califone Lightweight Stereo Headphone (8200-HP) provides school districts an affordable supplemental resource for mobile learning and computer-based activities

San Fernando, Calif. (Feb. 6, 2013) – With more districts incorporating hybrid or blended learning, headphones are becoming an important supplemental resource in classrooms and labs. Since students often wear headphones for extended periods of time, some districts select lighter weight headphones for enhanced student comfort. With the Lightweight Stereo Headphone (8200-HP) from Califone International, Inc., districts receive comfortable headphones at an affordable price.

The 8200-HP headphone is purpose-built to accommodate regular student use in classrooms, libraries and computer labs, featuring adjustable polypropylene headband and swiveling on-ear earcups to enhance student comfort. Its 3.5mm plug connects with widely used stereo sources, including computers and mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. The on-ear earcups also help block external ambient noise, helping protect student hearing and keep them on task. Recessed wiring prevents damage and ensures student safety.

As educators increasingly incorporate mobile learning and computer-based activities into the classroom, audio is becoming ever-more critical to these learning initiatives,” said Tim Ridgway, vice president of marketing for Califone. “The Lightweight Stereo Headphone is the perfect solution for districts that are looking for cost-effective, yet comfortable headphones.

Schools continue to face tight budgets and must ensure their limited resources are spent on products that will hold up to daily student use. With the addition of the Lightweight Stereo Headphone to its product suite, Califone offers a wide range of high-quality audio options to fit any size budget and need.

In addition to individual purchase, the Lightweight Stereo Headphones is available in multimedia packages. The 8200-HP is included with the purchase of the Califone MP4 Player, the Personal CD Player (CD102), the Four-Person Personal CD Learning Center (CD102PLC), and is also available in a classroom pack of 20 headphones (without a case).

To order the Lightweight Stereo Headphone, contact a Califone dealer. For more information on the full line of Califone products designed for the education market, and safe for school and library use, call 1-800-722-0500, or visit www.califone.com to view and download the entire Califone catalog.
