View Full Version : Need advice for special headphones...
11-30-2002, 10:30 AM
I need to buy 30 sets of headphones that have the following features. I could use some help in getting started:
1. Must have volume control on the cord
2. Must be over the ear (no ear buds)
3. Prefer noise-cancelling
4. Prefer very long warranty
5. Price range can be upwards of $60 each.

Are these for a classroom situation? If so, I am certain your A/V department would not only have a contact but special pricing.
I am on the teacher grant board for my kids' school district and we just bought a bunch of A/V equipment, including headphones.
I'll find out where our district gets their A/V stuff.

Have a peek at Hello Direct (http://www.hellodirect.com) - they carry a ton of different headsets.

Thanks for the input so far.
The headphones are for two labs, a special reading program. And...we have no real AV department. The librarian and I are the technically endowed, so we take it upon ourselves to handle such duties.

Noise-canceling and has volume control.

...do you have experience with those? They are actually one of the models that I shopped last night. The only thing they don't have is the squishy-over-the-ear pads. If the lab teachers don't need that, I will prolly pick those up. (I hope Amazon has 20 sets in stock)

I have some Kenwood KPM-610's (its been a few years since I got them) and they have independent volume control, fit over the ear, and I have beaten the crap out of them the entire time. I cant remember if its a 1 year or 2 year warranty on them. I got them when I worked at Goodguys...so you would just need to look up the current model number for them.

Got it. My peeps are gonna wax nasty on the headphones (10-15yearolds), so we are prolly going to go with the Kenwoods for durability. Thanks for all the input from all yall. :cheers:
