Califone® Launches Titanium™ Series Washable Headphones and Headsets at 2011 InfoComm

SAN FERNANDO, Calif., May 4, 2011 – Califone® International, Inc. (http://www.califone.com), a leader in the design, development, and manufacturing of A/V products and accessories since 1947, is proud to announce that it will launch its new Titanium™ Series washable headphones and headsets during InfoComm 2011, held in Orlando, Fla. from June 15-17 at the Orange County Convention Center, booth 4117. This is the first product of its kind to offer call centers, houses of worship, museums, and other institutions the ability to wash headphones and headsets without having to worry about damaging sensitive electronic equipment.

“No other headphone or headsets on the market can be washed, making the new Titanium Series unlike any other headphone or headset products previously offered,? said Tim Ridgway, Califone VP of marketing. “The fact that this series offers washable options is incredibly appealing to call centers, religious organizations and businesses looking to improve users’ audio-visual experiences without sacrificing product quality or affordability. Not only are these our safest products offered to date, they’re also the quietest products we’ve ever made in terms of isolation of the amplified audio and external ambient noise rejection. The Titanium Series is ground breaking in its versatility, reliability, and durability, yet it still puts the user’s listening experience first and foremost.?

The rugged new Titanium Series includes three headphones and three headsets, can limit the playback volume to 85dB via Sentinel™ technology, and offers a variety of cord options, allowing customers to choose from six different configurations. Availability includes a choice of USB or 3.5mm plug (without the Sentinel technology to limit the volume to 85dB), or not washable with a 3.5mm plug.

The Titanium Series utilizes a number of never-seen-before features. Two each of the series’ headphone and headsets are washable with the cords detached, providing a new standard for cleanliness. The ability to wash the Titanium Series helps assure that the institution will not need to replace the equipment as often due to wear and tear and also allows them to clean the equipment thoroughly without worrying about damaging the electronic components. No other headphones or headsets on the market can provide such a benefit.

“The built-in Sentinel™ technology restricts volume playback to 85dB in adherence to guidelines recommended by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA),? added Ridgway. “The first series of its kind to provide this functionality while also being washable, the Titanium Series allows institutions to offer users with an overall high-quality, safe listening experience never before possible.?

To lend an added degree of safety beyond cleanliness, the Series is made of rugged ABS plastic, which is stronger and less likely to break into dangerous shards, unlike the less durable plastics used in consumer items. Though ultra-strong, user comfort is not sacrificed. In addition to being washable, the supple ear cushions provide a softer point of contact and won’t feel as warm after being worn for an extended period of time. A variety of cord options provide unique 5-pin connections with USB, 3.5 mm plug (with a ¼-inch adapter) options.
