Wireless microphones

rimsApril 20, 2008

IÂd appreciate some ideas on using wireless microphones and wireless headphones to help my hard of hearing father participate in conversations.

A couple of years ago I bought my father Sennheiser RS110 wireless headphones to watch TV and preserve my motherÂs hearing.

He has hearing aids and isnÂt pleased with them but loves the headphones.

What IÂm thinking about is getting 4 or 5 inexpensive lapel wireless microphones and having them feed into a receiver. He can then have his headphones connected to the receiver and hear the conversation when friends come over instead of nodding and making generic statements.

I have a Pioneer receiver and the headphones but need to know if this idea may work and what would be the best inexpensive lapel microphones to buy.

Each microphone would need to transmit on a separate channel and you'd need a 5 channel receiver, otherwise the RF would interfere with each other.

I think 5x the background noise (conversations,ect) would be too much to listen to.

Thanks Regus,
I was afraid there would be a drawback. I think IÂll buy one mike and see how he likes it.
