The ability to hear and comprehend what is being taught in the classroom is fundamental to student success. Unfortunately, many students are unable to hear their teachers clearly due to background noise, classroom acoustics, and other factors. This can lead to frustration, disengagement, and ultimately, poor academic performance. The solution to this problem is classroom sound audio systems.
