Our ReLANpro headsets are an all “pro” no “con” situation. Unbeknownst to most, today’s computers do not provide what is considered to be a “state of the art” quality sound recording; they often have less than great sound cards. To counteract this, simply use a USB headset. The USB soundcard will atone for any lack in professional sound quality of the computer and thus assure AP test quality recordings and playbacks.
To utilize the language lab to its fullest potential, student recordings should be of only their own voice, so their ears need to be completely covered in order to have extraneous sounds removed. By utilizing a high quality directional microphone, the students will only hear their own voices during playback.
Flexibility allows the headset to fit the head as snugly as possible, so the ears are completely covered and the microphone can be placed directly in front of the student’s mouth. Students can speak in a normally and still produce a high quality recording without disturbing other students. In playback mode they will hear their own voice recorded in crystal clear sound, and be able to compare their recording to the master track for confirmation or adjustment.
To assure that a teacher can actually talk to a student via the headset, it is important for the teacher to be able to set and control both teacher and student volumes. Having a volume control on student headsets can be problematic since students then have the ability to make changes that can adversely affect recordings and the teacher’s ability to communicate with them.
In order to avoid recording issues, any professional educational headset should not include the ability to turn on or off the microphone, so students cannot change the setting.
If students were to stand up suddenly, the cable should be long enough to allow for this without having the cable become unplugged.
Cables with USB plugs can be easily switched out for replacement.
