Headphones in Electronic

Due to new measures designed to make all visitors and staff feel safe during the Covid-19 pandemic, all visitors must bring their own wired headphones to be able to listen to the videos in the exhibition.

Why are headphones needed?

The gallery is filled with the exclusive soundtrack mixed by French DJ and producer Laurent Garnier. This means that you will be able to watch the many videos that are used throughout the exhibition only using a pair of wired headphones.

The headphones were originally going to be loaned to visitors by the museum, but due to safety concerns linked to Covid-19, a decision was made to ask visitors to bring their own. This was the safest route to lower the risks of infection.

What type of headphones do I need?

You will need wired headphones. The over-ear type is advised, because they are better at blocking the sound of the soundtrack playing in the gallery.

Only wired headphones will work, with 3.5mm or 6.35mm jacks. An extension cable will be provided at the entrance to the gallery, to be able to watch the videos on the screens at a safe distance. The extension cables and any adapters used in the gallery will need to be returned to museum staff or put in a basket when you exit the gallery.

IMPORTANT: Bluetooth headphones/earphones or lightning cables will not work.

What if I don't have the right headphones?

Headphones can be purchased from the museum shop on Kensington High Street.

You will also be sent a link to catch up on most of the videos from the exhibition at home. Sometimes the pressure of having to watch all the videos while trying to respect the social distancing guidelines can be too much. This is to help ease that pressure.
