For logistical and hygiene reasons, we often work with disposable earbuds. After using, your guests can keep these earbuds and the receivers can go back into the chargers, so you don’t have to worry about cleanliness. This saves you time and work.

If you want a other type of earbuds / headset, please contact our customer service.

The Tour Guide (The Speaker)

There are a number of different microphones available for the tour guide. The vast majority of guides choose a microphone to be put on the head, which can be a headband or in the form of glasses, so they have both hands free. With a headset, the microphone is placed in front of the mouth and because the distance between the mouth and the microphone stays the same, one obtains a constant sound level which prevents ambient noises from coming through. The microphone is connected to the transmitter which hangs on a lanyard or belt. If desired, one can use a plug-in microphone to use the transmitter as a hand microphone. It is also possible to connect a separate audio source, like a MP3 player, to the transmitter.

The Participant (The Listener)

All participants will receive a receiver with associated earbuds. The receivers are supplied with a neck strap and belt clip and are not considered a nuisance because of its light weight. The receiver and transmitter each have access to 16 channels and each unit has LED lights that will glow whether there is a signal. The transmitter and receiver, of course, need to be set to the same channel. If the battery capacity is less than half an hour, a red LED light will automatically light up.
