Califone Releases Ear Bud Headphones For Audio Learning Activities

New listening devices help schools meet the testing needs of the Common Core State Standards

San Fernando, Calif. (April 14, 2014) –The demand for audio equipment in the classroom continues to grow, as students increasingly turn to online instruction and mobile devices for language learning. The new E2 and E3 Ear Buds from Califone International, Inc., a leader in the design, development and manufacturing of audiovisual (AV) and supplemental curriculum products for use in education, are designed to meet this demand.

The lightweight Ear Bud headphones deliver full-bodied stereo sound, and are iCompatible with iOS, Windows and Android-based tablets (including *Chromebooks, iPads, Galaxy, Nexus 7, Surface, Kindle Fire HD) and smartphones (including iPhones, Galaxy, HTC One, Lumia), as well as Windows, Android and Macintosh computers.

The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, and Smarter Balanced require the use of audio for online testing purposes as part of the Common Core State Standards,” said Tim Ridgway, vice president of marketing for Califone. “The E2 and E3 Ear Buds provide schools with the listening equipment they need for a wide variety of devices to help students succeed under the new standards.”

The Ear Buds feature a non-replaceable 3.9' straight cord with 3.5mm plug for use with computers, tablets and smartphones, and are made from shatter-resistant ABS plastic for increased student protection. Noise-reducing ear covers filter external ambient sounds, and analog inline volume control is included.
