Califone® Acquires Headphones & Headsets From Telex®

SAN FERNANDO, Calif., April 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Califone, a subsidiary of School Specialty® (NASDAQ: SCHS), announced today that it has reached an agreement to acquire the Discovery™, Odyssey , Explorer™ and 610™ brand names of headphones, headsets and their replaceable cords from Telex.

The purchase, effective immediately, transitions the manufacturing, marketing and distribution of the product lines to fall under full Califone ownership and management. Long considered by school resellers and educators alike to be premium lines in classrooms and libraries due to their exceptional quality and durability, they will be available in June as complements to the existing Califone line of headphones and headsets. Financial details of the transaction were not released.

To order, contact a Califone dealer.  For more information on the full line of Califone products, call 1-800-722-0500, or visit www.califone.com to view and download the Califone catalog.
