Walking tours are a great way to get acquainted with cities, towns and parks.
But tour guides need amplification to make their message heard.
Which highly portable handheld PA system is both easy to operate and loud enough for a small walking tour?
Samson Expedition XP25i Portable PA Systems
The Samson Expedition XP25i PA system pictured above is powerful, portable and elegantly simple. Just turn it on, turn it up and use the built-in push-to-talk button on the microphone to address the crowd!
Despite its power, the Samson Expedition XP25i PA remains portable, with a carrying handle and a convenient strap. It weighs a mere 5.5 pounds, so despite its power, carrying it around won’t wear you out.
Most importantly, it has a built-in rechargeable battery so you won’t need to hunt for a power outlet. It runs for up to 8 hours and charges in 4 — more than enough for even the most talkative tour guides.
Unlike other portable sound systems like megaphones, this Samson Expedition handheld PA system offers higher fidelity with a full-range 5-inch speaker. This is not only ideal for broadcasting speech for your audio tour, but also for adding sound effects and music.
To this end, the Samson Expedition XP25i adds a charging iPod dock. Just plug in your iPod and you’re wired for sound.
