Califone Extends Capabilities of Popular Headsets to Mobile Learning Devices

For many years, educational media devices utilized dual jacks for headsets that enabled high-quality sound for listening and for recording. However, the latest smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices, such as the iPhone and iPad, use only one 3.5 mm plug and a built-in mic, which limits sound quality. Additionally, most consumer-oriented headsets are not made to withstand rigorous use in the classroom and media labs, or provide hearing protection and safety features for children, or offer a warranty that covers school use. To meet educators' needs, Califone has extended the capabilities of its most popular headsets designed for education - including the washable Titanium series of headsets - to be compatible with today's mobile devices through the To Go plug option. According to a recent online poll, 68 percent of respondents reported that students listen to and/or record audio most of the time in 1:1 and group learning activities. Califone also offers jackboxes to help turn one iPad into a group learning experience in which each student can use a headset or headphone.

Califone Debuts Titanium Series with To Go Plug

Califone International, Inc. announces an expansion to its award-winning Titanium™ Series of headphones and headsets. The company’s most durable and technically advanced series is now available with a To Go™ plug, allowing the headsets to be used for listening and speaking into any digital mobile device. The product update is a direct result of customer feedback. While the To Go plug is featured with other Califone headset models, it hadn’t yet been offered for the Titanium series, the company’s most technically advanced headset. After receiving user requests, Califone upgraded the series with the To Go plug, enabling compatibility with iOS & Android-based smartphones and tablets.
