The First Step in the AVID Learning Journey

At AVID, we believe learning is a part of everyday life that starts at an early age and we are here to provide headsets and headphones to enhance the learning experience every step of the way.

As part of our suite of audio devices, we are pleased to announce the arrival of the first step in the AVID learning journey, the AE-25 headset. Primarily designed for younger students, the AE-25 is furnished with essential features to ensure a safer and more enhanced listening experience. Speakers are specially designed to keep sound at a lower volume to protect developing ears. The AE-25’s noise-canceling microphone allows for clear speech recognition, while the new SideKickTM feature provides the ability to quickly stow away the microphone to eliminate distraction during listening sessions.

Whether at school, at home or on-the-go, the AE-25 is a reliable audio tool to begin the learning and listening journey.
