The Sounds of Education

Personal CD Player

The CD102 Personal CD Player supports curriculums for language learning programs and 1:1 instruction for students listening to audio books as they learn vocabulary, proficiency and reading fluency. It allows native and non-native English speakers of all abilities to silently listen and read along to an audio at their own pace without distracting their peers in class, the library or even to take it home to help improve their reading skills.

The CD102 includes a lightweight and adjustable 8200-HP digital stereo headphone, whose on-ear earcups help reduce ambient noise to keep the students more on task.

Built to withstand the rigors of day-in and day-out use, the CD102 has improved buffering to guard against accidental bumps and its shell is constructed with rugged, durable ABS plastic.

The shell of the CD102 is constructed from rugged ABS plastic in order to withstand the rigors of day-in and day-out use. The playback of content is assured with improved buffering, which guards against skipping or lag in replay caused from any bumping of the CD102.

The CD102 is available individually and also in a 4-person CD learning center (CD102-PLC) with four 8200-HP headphones, a four-position mini stereo jackbox (with adjustable volume controls) and a foam-lined storage case.
