Back to School Tech Products

I received products to facilitate my review.

Given the tentative circumstances of going back to school this year, tech products are a very big interest to me. Kensington hit the mark with all of their available products which make going back to school much easier, whether it’s physical or online schooling.

Kensington USB Hi-Fi Headphones:



  • High-Quality Stereo Sound is provided through powerful 40mm drivers with deep bass and a wide dynamic range to deliver an exceptional listening experience.
  • Best-in-Class Comfort – designed to fit heads of all ages, the adjustable headband is padded and the foam ear pads are wrapped in a soft leatherette cover to provide hours of comfortable use.
  • 6 Foot USB Cord is the ideal length for learning environments and strong enough to stand up to heavy use.
  • Multi-Device Compatibility allows headphones to work with Windows, Mac and Chromebook devices.
  • Safe Listening Limit sets the maximum output to 94db to protect ears from hearing loss associated with excessively loud noise.

My take: This past spring with e-learning all 3 of my kids needed to watch videos prepared by their teachers. We quickly realized the need for headphones. After a week, I realized the need for quality headphones… the Kensington USB Hi-Fi Headphones are a perfect fit for all of my kids. Easy to adjust, comfortable to wear, able to use on multiple types of electronic devices and my favorite, the Safe Listening Limit so I know their ears are protected.

My favorite of the 3 products…Kensington SureTrack™ Dual Wireless Mouse which my oldest son and I have been fighting over this past week. Via Bluetooth it connected within seconds to my Mac and his iPad. I love my MacBook but the trackpad just doesn’t cut it sometime and this mouse is perfect for my needs. I also love how you can adjust the speed and if you don’t need to use the USB connector it can be stored in the bottom of the mouse.

The Portable Lock Box was a must have for me because last year my son’s phone was broken by a soccer cleat when he left it by the bench during a game. This lock box has tons of room and I can easily store my phone, keys and wallet. I plan on using this for my children’s sporting activities and when we go on vacation.
