Sep 28, 2023

Drop-Tested up to 6.6 feet (2 Meters) and Featuring a Fixed Stub Mic, the MAXCases Extreme Headset Delivers Durability, Accessibility, and Sound Quality for All Ages

IRVINE, CA (September 25, 2023) — MAXCases, a leading manufacturer of protective cases and accessories for iPads, Chromebooks, laptops, and tablets, announced that its Extreme Headset was recognized with two Tech & Learning Magazine Awards of Excellence for being a 2023 “Best Tool for Back to School” in both Primary and Secondary learning environment categories.

Drop-tested for durability up to 6.6 feet (2 meters), the MAXCases Extreme Headset is specifically designed to handle the rigors of all-day classroom use, while further providing comfort and ease of use. Created to last, the rugged design includes a durable, braided cable that resists kinks, twisting, and fraying; a flexible headband; and smooth, easy-to-clean surfaces. The fixed-position stub mic delivers clear audio quality and is more durable than larger or movable mics, while the adjustable ear pieces with padded covers provide comfort for extended listening. Accessibility features like Left-Right earpiece labels and ruggedized in-line volume control make them easy to use. The leading two-year warranty adds value and reassurance to school districts.

“With ESSER funding coming to an end, and emerging tech like AI exploding into the market…, it’s more important than ever to curate the many education products on the market to ensure your investments support innovative teaching and learning,” said Tech & Learning Content Director Christine Weiser. “Our judges chose products based on their versatility, compatibility, value, and ability to help schools solve challenges and support continuous instruction. Congratulations to all our winners.”

The MAXCases Extreme Headset is an over-the-ears headset, which provides several advantages over earbuds including greater comfort, better sound control, and superior durability, as well as being easier to keep clean with standard disinfectants. Two models offer a choice of USB-A or 3.5mm connectivity, with an available 3.5mm to USB-A adaptor for added versatility.

“It is an honor to be recognized by Tech & Learning with this award, because the MAXCases Extreme Headset offers an exceptional value in a highly durable and reliable product that can provide distraction-free learning and individualized differentiation,” said MAXCases CEO Al Giazzon. “We took great care in creating a headset that addressed a leading challenge – broken mics. Recently, we further reinforced the in-line volume control design to enhance its rugged durability – a hallmark of MAXCases commitment to continuous improvement.”

Founded to serve the needs of educators, MAXCases always offers volume discounts and special pricing for educators. This is unique in an industry where many case suppliers focus on several industries and sell to education as an add-on rather than their primary market. The company further meets educators’ needs with 100% U.S.-based customer service provided by a team that is passionate about education.

Both MAXCases Extreme Headset models (USB-A or 3.5mm connectivity) are currently available for an MSRP of $29.95. The MAXCases 3.5mm to USB-A adaptor is currently available for an MSPR of $14.95. Volume and educator pricing is available.
