For many years I regretted that despite every attempt to speak audibly, the challenge of drowning out ambient noise both indoors and out never was really overcome.
The environment frequently presents an almost insurmountable problem — customers want to hear the information — why else sign up for a guided tour ? But audio conditions are sometimes not really optimal, undermining the groups attention – result: clients feel they don’t really get what they paid for. Fortunately there is now an effective way to enable tour members to make use of wireless-hi-tech sound technology – called tour guide audio system.
Basically it is a light, easy-to-carry wireless receiver about the size and weight of a pack of cigarettes with an equally light-weight headset, compatible even with hearing aids. One can adjust the volume to individual comfort level, and it does not mess up one’s hair.
Although the headset does not entirely block ambient noise, my guests can now understand every word, they don’t have to strain to hear me, can concentrate on important information and enjoy the full learning experience. For the photographers in the group, this technology is a boon. They can enjoy the explanations and stay in touch with the group even while photographing to their heart’s content. Thanks to the powerful transmitter they can hear me from as far as 300 feet away. So we use it on city walks, in museums, in parks, palaces and churches and during excursions (when applicable).
This new technological experience is remarkable – my groups are always favorably impressed and delighted by the quality and by the fact that they don’t have to strain to hear.
We are looking forward to your email !
