Titanium Series Headset

Introducing the most technically advanced and durable headsets ever manufactured by Califone. The Titanium™ series of Mac & PC compatible stereo headsets will help optimize differentiated learning experiences with breakthroughs in safety, performance, comfort and durability.

Headsets used in classrooms or libraries are constantly handled and worn throughout the school week. To keep them in top condition and clean, the Titanium headsets are the first headsets that can be washed in soap and water once their cord has been detached (the HPK-1530 and HPK-1030 models are not washable)! Once cleaned and thoroughly dried, simply reconnect the replaceable cord and the Titanium headset is ready for reuse.

To help students learn what a safe volume level is when using a headset, the Titanium headsets are also the first to restrict the volume playback level to the ASHA and OSHA-recommended maximum of 85 decibels. There is a switch on the earcup to disarm this feature for students with special needs on the HPK-1030 / HPK-1530 and on the cord of the HPK-1010 / HPK-1510. The HPK-1550 / HPK-1050 models have inline volume control, but not the 85dB restriction. There is even a rechargeable model (HPK-1030).

In addition to filtering the audio volume, Titanium headsets help students focus more effectively on the task at hand by blocking the highest amount of ambient (external) noise of any passive headset Califone has ever offered. This also reduces the need to increase the volume and helps with their hearing safety.

School budgets can't afford equipment that won't last the entire year or cause lost learning time, and that's why Titanium headsets are built using more rugged ABS plastic (even its cord is thicker than previous models). But longer lasting doesn't automatically mean student comfort, which is why the ear cushions have also been upgraded. They feel even softer without the accumulated clammy feeling which can come after prolonged use.

Another first on the Titanium headsets is the optional Guaranteed for Life cords. Students have been known to chew on or accidentally roll over cords with casters on moveable chairs. Califone will replace any cord on the HPK-1550 / HPK-1510 / HPK-1530 models for the life of the cord if damage should occur from regular school use.

Since schools, districts and students in BYOD environments utilize different devices when listening with headphones, the Titanium headsets are available with either a USB plug (HPK-1010 / HPK-1510), dual 3.5mm plugs (HPK-1550 / HPK-1050 / HPK-1530 / HPK-1030) and even a single 3.5mm To Go plug (HPK-1010T) to connect with iOS and Android-based smartphones, tablets and computers.
