Hello, I know absolutely nothing about headphones, speakers, microphones, etc, or how they connect, or if they can be connected. Our church organist is an elderly lady who plays wonderfully, but cannot hear the minister in the front of the church(even tho she has hearing aids). Since she cannot hear the minister, she often misses when she is supposed to play. I am wondering if there is some way to hook up some headphones for her either to the speakers, the microphone the minister uses, or something like that. The church does not have a large congregation, so these expensive new personal audio wireless setups are not a choice. Is there any old fashioned way we can hook up something simple with wires? (I would need to know what wires to buy and how to hook them up )
Thank you for any suggestions!! marianelaine

Sure, you can run a line from the microphone to the organist and plug into an amplifier. The amplifier does not have to be anything fancy. Something old that people likely have lying around the home collecting dust will suffice. Then if the amp has a headphone out you can use that or you can go to a speaker.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for your quick response! How would this work if there is a wireless microphone? Thanks!

Depending on what the wireless receiver is like, you are looking to go from the receiver to the organ area. Would is be possible for you to post some pictures if the back of the receiver?

Does the minister use a pa system now? If so you minght be able to add a speaker to it near the organ. head phones and hearing aids don't really mix good so a monitor speaker would be better. take pictures of what you have in the church and post them and we should be able to get something going cheap too.
