One of the best headphone values for use in education, the 610 is known for its comfort, quality, versatility and affordability. Its durable construction enables the 610 to hold up to the heavy day-in and day-out use from students. It is trusted and widely used in typical mono functions (ELL / ELD, language labs, speech pathology) and stereo modes with computers, gaming and for music appreciation classes. The 610 is ideal for use in computer labs and libraries in 1:1 applications and small group learning centers with educational software and is Windows and MAC compatible.
The 610 features over-the-ear earcups that are ambient-noise reducing to help keep students on task while minimizing the need to increase the volume. It has protective slotted baffles protecting the inner speakers against accidental puncturing from sharp objects (such as an unfolded paper clip). The earcups are connected by steel-reinforced dual headband straps which are designed to be equally comfortable for younger students or for when used in adult education classes. The headbands have a “memory” feature that no matter how they're bent or twisted, they “remember” their original shape and spring back.
The replaceable (mono models only) 5' cord withstands 250,000 flexes, and with a cord change, allows minor repairs to be made without purchasing a new headphone body to extend its usefulness and helps to preserve school budgets. The replaceable, easy-to-clean vinyl ear cushions used on the 610 one of the most durable on the market and are also hypoallergenic, no latex.

“I teach my classes how to play keyboards. Since I am instructing the entire class, they plug their 3060AVS stereo headphones in. This cuts down on noise and also allows the students to concentrate on what they are doing.” Diane DeSalvo Music Teacher Duquesne Education Center Duquesne, PA
A: Yes. The Explorer™ and 610-41 binaural headphones feature a headband that maintain the original shape of the head wearing them no matter what the size and then can shift to conform to another person’s size head.
