Key Considerations When Buying Headphones
Comfort: Long study sessions call for headphones that prioritize comfort. TWT Audio headphones are engineered with ergonomics in mind. The ERGO series boasts a comfortable headband design, while the DURO and REVO series come with genuine over-the-ear cushions. With padded ear cups and adjustable headbands, these headphones ensure a snug fit for all head sizes, allowing students to focus on learning without distraction.
Durability: Students can be rough with their belongings, so durability is crucial. TWT Audio products are built to last, featuring sturdy construction and chew-resistant cables (we also offer strain relief adapters too). The REVO series stands out with replaceable cables and ear pads, enabling easy refurbishment or upgrades, ensuring your investment lasts for years to come.
Sound Curve: Protecting students' hearing is paramount, especially during extended listening periods. TWT Audio addresses this concern by designing headphones with a specific audio curve that eliminates unnecessary midrange frequencies, promoting a safe listening experience. The ear cup and ear cushion designs are tested rigorously, providing peace of mind for both students and educators.
Noise Reduction: In a noisy classroom environment, noise reduction is essential for maintaining focus. The DURO and REVO series of TWT Audio headphones feature an over-the-ear design that provides excellent noise reduction through their ear cushions and fit. This feature allows students to concentrate better and enhances the value of these headphones for school budgets.
Compatibility: Ensure the headphones you choose are compatible with the devices used in the classroom. TWT Audio supports all devices with 3.5mm, USB-A, and USB-C options. The REVO series, in particular, offers a changeable cable feature, enabling quick conversion from a 3.5mm plug to a USB-C connection without the need for purchasing an entirely new headphone.
Price: Balancing quality and affordability is crucial when purchasing headphones for students. While low-cost options may seem tempting, they often need frequent replacements, resulting in higher total costs over time. Investing in high-quality, durable headphones, like those offered by TWT Audio, ensures a better long-term value and a superior listening experience.
Warranty: Warranties can be a lifesaver in the case of unexpected issues. TWT Audio products come with a one-year warranty for the LITE series and a two-year warranty for the ERGO, DURO, Victory gaming, and REVO series. Their warranty program includes a Quick Click & Send Photo process, streamlining the handling of warranty claims and minimizing customer inconveniences.
Microphone Boom Placement: A clear and properly placed microphone is crucial for students engaging in online learning or remote collaboration. TWT Audio headsets are designed with an optimized microphone boom position, capturing voices clearly while minimizing background noise. This feature ensures smooth communication during virtual class sessions or group projects.
