Telex Soundmate System Details
The transmitter has a range of about 1000 feet and will go through floors, ceilings and walls. This means that the listener can pick up the signal anywhere in the building. The transmitter can easily be moved to any other location and connected to another amplifier or directly to a microphone. This allows you to use the system anywhere. There are many options including various styles of earbuds, headphones and neckloops.
Although the Soundmate works quite well in many church environments, the Listen system is far superior.

Changing earbud cushions on the allows you to get more use out of your headphones, without compromising personal hygiene.
Simultaneous Translation System
The same Soundmate or Listen system is also perfect for simultaneous language translation. Instead of connecting the transmitter to your church's sound system, you can simply plug a microphone into the transmitter. The person doing the translating speaks into the microphone and all the people with pocket receivers will hear the translation. Sometimes we use full muff headphones such as the AKG K512 instead of earbuds. This blocks out the surrounding room sound enabling the person to concentrate better on the language they want to hear.
You need a separate transmitter and set of receivers for each translation language, and also a separate system for hearing assistance.
