Titanium™ Series Headphone

Introducing the most technically advanced and durable headphones ever manufactured by Califone. The Titanium™ series of Mac & PC compatible stereo headphones will help optimize differentiated learning experiences with breakthroughs in safety, performance, comfort and durability.

Headphones used in classrooms or libraries are constantly handled and worn throughout the school week. To keep them in top condition and clean, the Titanium headphones are the first headphones that can be washed in soap and water (after its cord has been detached)! (The HPK-1020,HPK-1520 and HPK-1524 models are not washable.) Once cleaned and thoroughly dried, simply reconnect the replaceable cord and the Titanium headphone is ready for reuse.

To help students learn what a safe volume level is when using a headphone, the Titanium headphones are also the first to restrict the volume playback level to the ASHA and OSHA-recommended maximum of 85 decibels. There is a switch to disarm this feature for students with special needs on the earcup of the HPK-1020 / HPK-1520 and on the cord of the HPK-1000 / HPK-1500. The HPK-1540 / HPK-1040 models have inline volume control, but not the 85dB restriction. There is even a rechargeable model (HPK-1020).

In addition to filtering the audio volume, Titanium headphones help students focus more effectively on the task at hand by blocking the highest amount of ambient (external) noise of any passive headphone Califone has ever offered. This also reduces the need to increase the volume and helps with their hearing safety.

School budgets can't afford equipment that won't last the entire year or cause lost learning time, and that's why Titanium headphones are built using more rugged ABS plastic (even its cord is thicker than previous models). But longer lasting doesn't automatically mean student comfort, which is why the ear cushions have also been upgraded. They feel even softer without the accumulated clammy feeling which can come after prolonged use.

Another first on the Titanium headphones is the optional Guaranteed for Life cords. Students have been known to chew on or accidentally roll over cords with casters on moveable chairs. Califone will replace any cord on the HPK-1500 / HPK-1520 / HPK-1524 models for the life of the cord if damage should occur from regular school use.

Since schools, districts and students in BYOD environments utilize different devices when listening with headphones, the Titanium headphones are available with either a USB plug (HPK-1000 / HPK-1500) and a single 3.5mm plug with a ¼” adapter (HPK-1040 / HPK-1020 / HPK-1024).

A bundled pack of four HPK-1020 headphones is also available (charger included).

  • Softer, more comfortable ear cushions
  • Comfort strap for longer wearability
  • Adjustable headstrap rugged enough for daily classroom use
  • Earcups offer the highest passive ambient noise rejection, effectively blocking external distractions to keep students on task
  • In-line volume control, LED light is green when the cord is plugged into the computer and red when the Sentinel switch is turned on
  • USB 2.0 connectivity
  • Protective slotted baffles guard against perforation of the speakers
  • First washable headphone for easy cleaning
  • Optional Guaranteed for Life cord

“The 3068AV headphones have a volume adjustment so the kids aren't blasted out with some programs that override the volume adjustment I set on the computers.”

Q: Why doesn't the part number I used to order a Titanium model appear on the headphone or cord - there's a different number instead?
Q: There are some headphones/headsets sold to schools which require a separate USB adapter to be connected and then dedicated software must be downloaded in order to use the product. Do the USB products Califone makes work this way too?
Q: We’d like to use Califone heavy duty construction headphones and headsets (2924 series, HPK series, and 3066 series) in our adult school. What’s the length from the headband to the center of the earcups when the adjustable headband is fully extended?
