As the proportion of English-language learners grows to nearly ten percent, students at varying levels of English proficiency need special consideration — especially when they must learn alongside native speakers. 

To support active, distraction-free speaking and listening for ELL instruction, AV equipment considerations take center-stage. Califone recently updated its best-selling 3068 headphone series to include a headset model.

The 3068 headset features a flexible, noise-canceling microphone and ambient noise-reducing earcups and dual volume controls.

San Fernando, Calif. (Feb. 1, 2016) – According to the National Center for Educational Statistics, English language learners (ELLs) represent 10 percent of public school students – the fastest growing segment of student populations.

The 3068 headset features an attached noise reducing microphone to engage students in active speaking and listening, resulting in a deeper learning experience. The headset includes two of the most popular audio plugs, the 3.5 mm To Go and USB, for versatile use with mobile, computer or gaming devices.
