Brief: New Califone Headset Intended for Extended Classroom Wear

The 3065AV features a six-foot cord with reinforced connections to prevent accidental pullout.

Califone has added a lightweight Windows- and Mac-compatible headset to its catalog for use in online lessons, language learning applications, podcasting, gaming, and other presentation software. The new 3065AV is intended for extended daily wear by students.

The adjustable headset comes with a six-foot cord and dual 3.5 mm mini plugs that connect to most media players, as well as a movable, unidirectional microphone and ear cushions. Wiring has been recessed to prevent "prying fingers" and the plug connections have been reinforced to minimize accidental pullout.

The headset is priced at $17 per set or $153 for a 10-pack.
