Listening Centers and Headphones

Listening Centers and Headphones
When you want to conduct a listening exercise or a transcription seminar, you need the right audio visual equipment. With a listening center, you can provide each participant or student with a personal set of headphones, as everyone listens to the same recording. This arrangement is ideal because it eliminates distractions and promotes focus.

At Hertz Furniture, we know that earphones aren't the only thing you need to create the optimal listening experience. We also have excellent wireless boom boxes so you can play CD's or cassettes easily. When it’s time to pack up and transport all of your devices, you can keep everything arranged neatly in one of our convenient audio carriers.

Listening centers are useful to have for a number of school and business applications. If your school tries to bring technology into the classroom as much as possible, appropriate listening tools will really come in handy. When you have cinematography or music recording seminars, students will be able to focus on the audio input more easily and really get a feel for high-quality sound.

When a choir or orchestra is recording a CD, individual headsets enable each musician to hear the other parts of the harmony more clearly, so their parts can be accurately timed. This tool is also convenient to have in a language lab where students need to practice having conversations through simulated scenarios. When the whole class listens to something as it is played on speakers, they are more likely to become distracted and the sound might be distorted.

There are many professional settings in which a listening center can be quite useful. When you are running training seminars that have an audio component, they give every participant optimal sound quality while not requiring you to provide individual devices. This can be especially helpful when conducting initial qualifying tests or seminars in fields such as transcription and customer service.

Not all head phones are ideal for use in an educational or professional environment. When multiple people are using the same headset, especially when those people are children, there is a risk that lice and germs will be spread. Hamilton Buhl headphones are the ideal choice for shared audio equipment because they come with individual storage bags that kill lice and prevent it from spreading. As an additional precaution, the bags can be individually-labeled with students’ names for hygiene purposes.

There are many additions to the basic earphone design that can greatly enhance a listener’s experience. Luxurious leather ear pads reduce pressure on the ears and provide soft cushioning which facilitates comfortable listening. Some headsets include individual built-in volume adjustments so each listener can set the volume at the tone that is most pleasant to them.

Headsets aren’t the only thing you need for listening exercises. When you want to play a song or recording out loud, a CD and cassette player can be quite helpful. We carry a high-quality battery-operated boom box from OSC. This convenient tool makes it easy to use music in the educational environment, whether you are conducting class listening exercises or you just want some background music to help students concentrate as they work.

When you have multiple sets of headphones, you need a good place to keep them. The audio-carrier from Wood Designs can store headsets and CDs all in one eco-friendly all-natural caddy. Unlike a regular box or crate where wires and devices can easily get tangled up, this convenient solution keeps everything lined up in an organized fashion.

At Hertz Furniture we know how much the right equipment can contribute to the experience of your students and employees. Our earphones, listening centers and boom boxes are designed to facilitate the ideal audio experience in a classroom or seminar. Show students, employees and clients just how modern your institution is with great audio equipment from Hertz Furniture.

Lecture halls, auditoriums, chapels and other venues require audio equipment and podiums. The Oklahoma Sound Corporation brings you a winning combination of top-quality microphones, powerful speakers and attractive lecterns. Their functional church podiums and portable lecterns come with a 25-year warranty so you can enjoy extended worry-free use.

Not every room has the same style or acoustics, so it is important to choose a podium that meets a space's practical and aesthetic requirements. We have wooden models with built-in sound systems as well as sleek acrylic ones. Hertz Furniture's full selection enables you to consider all of the options and ultimately choose the one which fulfills your needs.

It can be hard to make the right choice when buying a church lectern or podium. Although practical concerns such as the size of the sanctuary and the nature of events it will house are important, stylistic concerns must be taken into account as well. The ideal model will help the congregation focus on the person behind the podium. It is important that this piece of furniture not become a distraction or detract from the harmony of a spiritual setting.

The right church pulpit ultimately depends on the size and style of the room it inhabits. If you have a classic-style house of worship, a basic wooden lectern will probably fit in well. If you want one that has built-in sound capabilities we have a number of models that seamlessly integrate speakers into the podium structure so they maintain a basic style while serving a functional purpose.

For new-age churches and modern companies such as startups, a wooden model might seem to be a bit behind the times. For a more updated and unique look, acrylic podiums are an excellent option. Their sleek see-through material keeps eyes focused on the lecturer or presenter as the light appearance breaks down the barrier between the speaker and the audience.

When there is no space in the room for a freestanding model, but you still need a surface that is at a comfortable height for reading notes, a portable podium is the way to go. Tabletop lecterns can transform virtually any table-height surface into a speaking space. This arrangement is perfect for a room that is used for a number of different purposes where a podium is required on a regular but not constant basis. Portable models can easily be kept under a table, in a corner or in a storage closet without taking up very much space.

With a large congregation or student body, it is important to make sure that speakers and lecturers are heard loud and clear. With the aid of a microphone, you get great voice amplification without having to strain. We have mics in a variety of styles so you can find the arrangement that is best suited to your purposes and space.

The basic wireless microphone enables you to enjoy the benefits of amplification, even as you move around a stage or a room. While being able to move around is convenient, having to hold something in your hand can become a nuisance, especially when one is speaking for an extended period of time. Headset microphones provide hands-free use so speakers don't have to hold anything as they present. For those who prefer equipment that is more subtle, tie-clip mics can be clipped right onto the lapel where they are hardly noticeable.

In an age where technology is at everyone's fingertips, sometimes plain old speeches just aren't enough to entice a packed house. If you want to keep up with the times and draw a crowd, you need one of our versatile AV carts. With the capability to play digital slideshows from a laptop that is hooked-up to a projector, you will impress everyone as you provide multimedia demonstrations. With an audio visual cart, you can easily bring technology into the classroom, sanctuary or lecture hall.

Hertz Furniture is proud to bring you the Oklahoma Sound Corp's comprehensive collection of lecterns and podiums. These sleek user-friendly models are built to serve your institution through years of speeches, lectures, services and presentations. With the right furniture, you can make any presenter feel like a valued asset to your company, school or house of worship.
