Sound meshes for people with impaired hearing

People that use hearing aids benefit immensely from a system of sound meshes or a comparable system used to reduce extra sounds and enhance listening. It is possible to use such equipment that sends infrared signals through the air in Hof. The signal goes through a receiver, headphones or a sound loop that functions through the hearing aid. If guests wish to use this equipment please notify the ticket office before the event.
