Students are encouraged to purchase a headset during the first week of classes, to avoid a longer waiting period or the necessity of settling for a more expensive headset.
The Plantronics Audio 355 Multimedia PC Headsets sold at the Bookstore have been tested and approved for use with the hardware and software installed at the AMLF. The purchase price will be $24.99, plus taxes, as long as supplies last.
Disclaimer: Voice recordings for exams and assignments must be of high quality. We therefore urge students to buy the recommended headset model. The Plantronics headsets have a one-year manufacturer warranty against defects. No exchanges will be honoured for headsets broken through the purchaser's neglect. The AMLF is not responsible for lost or stolen headsets.
