San Fernado, Calif. --
Califone International will launch its new Titanium Series of washable
headphones and headsets next month.
Two models of headphones
and two headsets in the series, aimed at institutions such as museums and call
centers where headphones are shared by multiple users, will feature detachable
cords that allow for washing the headphones without damage to electronic
"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,
Califon's marketing VP. "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."
The Titanium Series also
allows users to limit the playback volume to 85dB via Sentinel technology, and
offers a variety of cord options, allowing the choice of six different
configurations. It features rugged ABS plastic construction which is stronger
and less likely to break into dangerous shards, unlike the less durable
plastics used in consumer items, the compnay said.
"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," 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."
