In the world of computers, tablets and smartphones, it is impossible to live without headphones and have great sound listening experience. Headphones are not only for hearing music but they have many other applications. Call centers, libraries, schools etc. are other places where headphones have to be used for quieting things down and listening closely to the instructions being given or topic being taught. For example, headphones that are used for learning a language should provide crystal clear sound without inserting too much bass, treble or other effects that take away the originality from the sound.
Califone 3068AV is one of the best set of headphones out there that meets most of the requirements someone can have from headphones. These headphones have been designed with learning and music listening experience in mind. They boast features that make them practical for people who want to hear music on them as well people who want them primarily for learning experience. The most amazing feature that sets these headphones apart from any other headphones on the market is the switchable stereo/mono. Depending on why you are using the headphones, you could use the switch to make your output stereo or mono.
In addition to that, the built quality of the headphone is amazing. The leatherette ear cups are perfect for a comfortable experience regardless of how long you use the headphones for. The construction of the headphones is mainly plastic but it is strong plastic. The ear cups are connected to the headband with steel tubes. The headband also has cushioning on it so the headphones don’t hurt your head after wearing them for a long time. The size of the headphones can be changed as the ear cups slide in and out of the headband using the steel tubes.
The cord on these headphones is coiled so you can expect to sit as far away as possible from the connection point. The length of the cord is 10ft and it ends on a 3.5mm jack. However, there is an additional adapter that would allow you to convert the 3.5mm jack according to the media you are about to insert it into. This allows you to use the headphones not only on your smartphones and Windows computers but MACs and other mp3 players too. The big size of the ear cups with leatherette cushioning is perfect for canceling the noise when you are focusing on words in your language learning class.
These headphones are one of the most affordable headphones on the market with such great features. They even come with 2-year warranty that you rarely see on headphones with such price tag. You could use these headphones at school for learning without voiding the warranty which is not the case with other headphones. Califone has put the controls in the right place too. The sound controlling knob is located on both the ear cups so you can control the volume from each earpiece separately. The covers on earpieces have been kept hypoallergenic for everyone to use these headphones without the slightest hesitation.
