Top Back-to School Headphones, Online or In Person

Another summer vacation is almost in the books, and a brand new school year is right around the corner. While we appear to be on pace for the most normal-looking school year since 2020, it’s never a bad idea to plan ahead for any curve balls or speed bumps that may come our way. For this reason, teachers should be thinking about structuring their classroom activities in a way that can be easily pivoted to a remote platform if necessary. After all, if there’s one thing these past couple of years have taught us, it’s that you never know what to expect!

Additionally, online charter schools like K12 and NWEA have experienced a meteoric rise in popularity since the onset of the pandemic. Not all students learn best in a traditional classroom setting, and these online-only school models gave many students the alternative they may not have known they needed to thrive academically. As a new school year begins, students and teachers at these online charter schools are also gearing up for success, performance, and achievement.

We’ve compiled a list of distance learning headsets that are perfect for both in-person and remote learning, not to mention ideal for school testing for K-12 students across the board. Here are our picks:
