Infrared Systems

Infrared systems are another wireless system that uses light waves to transmit sound. They are available for home/personal use and in larger area situations and provide a high quality sound fidelity for music and speech, making them excellent for watching TV or listening to music. Microphones and receivers are battery operated with rechargeable batteries. However the signal does not go through solid objects and walls and the microphone has must have a direct line of sight to the receiver.
