Audio solutions for the New University Experience

Campus life has changed beyond recognition for students, teachers, and faculty staff alike, but it has also provided an opportunity for education professionals to re-evaluate learning norms, providing a glimpse of what the future could hold for higher education in the post-pandemic world.

Adapting to new conditions has meant lecturers have had to find new ways of interacting with and supporting their students academically, relying on new tools and technologies to help them thrive at home. Students, on the other hand, have had to find new ways to communicate with their lecturers and collaborate with peers, all in an effort to achieve their academic goals.

For university students to focus in busy environments, they need high quality, flexible audio tools. EPOS headsets, delivered in partnership with SCC, provide plug and play convenience and all-day wearing comfort for university students and lecturers on the go.
