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.
