Hearing Enhancement

Cues do you no good if you can’t hear them.  Hearing enhancement is available for dancers who need it at many, but not all, Cued Ballroom venues.  All venues who offer it use the same equipment and frequency – a Williams Sound transmitter at 72.9 MHz.  This is the standard frequency for Cued Ballroom (Round Dance) world-wide.

Receivers are widely available online.  Compatible models:
Williams Sound PPA-R37  – The most popular model.  Costs about $100-$125.
Williams Sound PPA-R38  – Has a screen, but no better sound quality than the PPA-R37.  Costs about $150-$175

TIVDIO HRD-102.  Costs about $15.  Available on Amazon and Ebay.

Many clubs/cuers have a loaner receiver, if you’d like to try before you buy.

In any case, you should ask your instructor.  If they don’t already own the device, they may be able to buy or borrow one.

BTW, there’s no particular stigma attached to using these devices in Cued Ballroom.  Hearing is so important in our activity that lots of people use them.
