Teachers understand one secret to a successful class is engaging their students. These fun solid-colored Listening First Headphones are built to do just that with playful Blue color. Purpose built with the proper age-appropriate size and weight for day care to elementary school-aged students, these unique headphones are ideal for computer-based programs (including testing to meet Common Core State Standards), literacy and language learning activities, read alongs in classrooms, library and lab settings. Safety was a design priority for the Listening First headphones with slotted earcup baffles protecting the internal speakers against accidental perforation by sharp objects. Noise-reducing earcups rest around not in the ears to provide maximum protection against ambient noise so students won't increase the volume to hear the content. The rugged ABS plastic earcups won't shatter (unlike materials used in consumer electronics items) into potentially dangerous shards and withstand the rigors of daily use to help children remain focused on learning. The entry point of the cord into the earcup is reinforced. The 3.5mm stereo plug enables student listening to smartphones, tablets, computers and other audio sources. Creating a small group of differentiated learners is possible with the use of a stereo jackbox.Optional disposable hypoallergenic cloth earpad covers (2800EC) are available for headphones in high use settings. Students and teachers tell us the covers help make the headphones feel even cooler, are comfortable to wear and help keep the earpads clean. The solid-colored Listening First headphones come with an industry leading two-year warranty.Adjustable headband comfortable for extended wearSpecifically sized for young studentsIdeal for beginning computer classes and story-time usesPermanently attached with reinforced " strain" connection resists accidental pull outLengthy 5'-6" straight cord with 3.5mm plug set at right angle reduces accidental pull-outAround-ear ambient noise-reducing earcups deliver maximum protection against exterior sounds (without added electronic circuitry and expense).
