Hello and thank you for your wonderful review! To your point regarding cleaning, we use professional quality 'over the ear' headsets rather than 'in ear' to give our guests the highest audio quality possible, with minimal customer contact. The headset, cord and receiver are fully cleaned/sanitized between uses to ensure the the well being of our guests and our guides.
