With a quiet box audio receiver on a tour, I love the concept of being far enough away from the guide so that you can hear what they are saying, and not being so cramped up next to everybody. But, I HATE having that thing around my neck all day. It is an obvious sign that you are a tourist (usually a bright red lanyard), it bumps on your chest and tangles with necklaces, and it requires earphones to be plugged into it that create even more wires on your body.
Has anybody had any luck with a wireless audio receiver that will allow me to use my apple airbuds? I was curious about the Airfly Pro by Twelve south.
