Califone headphones and headsets purchased on or after Jan. 1, 2013 now include a two-year warranty

San Fernando, Calif. (Jan. 7, 2013)Califone International, Inc., a leader in design, development and manufacturing of audiovisual and supplemental curriculum products for education, today announces headphones and headsets purchased on or after Jan. 1, 2013, will include a two-year warranty.* The company is the first in the education industry to offer a warranty of this duration for child-sized models.

The warranty extension reflects the company’s commitment to the education community and confidence in the durability of its products. Recent technical innovations have expanded the lifespan of Califone gear as well as supporting new ways of learning. Industry firsts including the washable Titanium™ series, Guaranteed for Life™ cords, use of more rugged materials such as ABS plastic for added safety, and the launch of the first headsets for mobile learning are all helping to minimize interruptions to learning time while helping administrators achieve greater return on their investment at a time when cost efficiency is paramount. Using Califone headphones and headsets, teachers can incorporate rich audiovisual resources into their lessons to support academic goals and Common Core State Standards without worry over durability and replacement costs.

While all Califone products come with a high-quality guarantee, backing the headphones and headsets with a two-year warranty adds an extra level of protection to help schools stretch their dollars,” said Tim Ridgway, vice president of marketing for Califone. “Since most headphones and headsets undergo frequent and rigorous use in educational settings, such as classrooms and media centers, schools won’t have to worry about replacements costs if something breaks within the first two years of purchase.
