Trinity has an infrared system made by Listen Technologies. The units come in two type: stethoscope (with ear pieces attached to the unit) and lanyard (worn around the neck with a set of headphones). We also have loops that can be plugged into the lanyards. The loop will transmit the audio feed to your hearing aid.
Both the stethoscope and lanyard units have volume control, so you can dictate how loud or soft the audio feed transmits throughout the performance. It is also important to make sure that the unit is not blocked by anything (a coat, scarf, etc.) because it will prevent the infrared signal from getting through. For more information, please ask the house manager on your next visit to the theater.
Trinity has many open captioned performances and it offers a season subscriber package for the OC performances. You more get more information from the Trinity website each season.
