All product descriptions are available in English and German. If you are unsure about an English or German description, please contact us for descriptions in another language.

4. Prices

All published prices are guide prices that are continually adjusted to the market. For deliveries to Switzerland, these are advertised in Swiss francs (CHF), excluding 7.7% VAT. The prices stated in the order confirmation sent by Hidden Sound always apply to customers.
