GENERAL FAQs

To have fun of course! A Silent Disco can have many different applications, ranging from a high-tech party, to an alternative listening experience for people who are hard of hearing. We think any reason is a good reason for a silent disco, and if we can help make your idea come true, we'd love to help.

Silent Disco rentals vary in cost depending on who or where you rent them from. In general, you can expect to pay around $6-$10 per headphone. Shipping is either included, or extra between $50-$100 roundtrip. Our turnkey silent disco rentals start at just over $7 per headphone, and include everything for an effortless silent disco rental.

One of the best parts of a silent disco is everyone can listen to their music channel of choice. If you have multiple DJs, or even just multiple MP3 players, you can stream up to 3 stations, letting your guests pick their favorite to dance to.

To host a successful silent disco, you'll need a few things:

  1. Silent Disco Headphones - Get enough silent disco headphones for each of your guests.
  2. Silent Disco Transmitter - You'll need at least one of these. We include three with our rentals for up to three different music channels.
  3. Music - A simple iPod or mp3 player will work! If you want to up your party game, you can have up to three DJ's battle live.
  4. Partygoers! - Obviously you'll need some partygoers. Don't worry if they have never experienced a silent disco before. Once your first guest puts on a pair of headphones, everyone will soon follow to find out what the hype is all about.

Silent disco is the most fun you can have without going deaf. Seriously! You can party all night long to the music of your choice, at your preferred volume level. No speakers mean no noise disturbance for your neighbors, or feeling like you need to "step out" for a break from all the music. Simply pop the headphones off, and hangout until you are ready to jump back on the dance floor.

Throwing a silent disco at home is easy. You'll need to rent or purchase a silent disco system that includes headphones & transmitter(s), and you'll need to provide your own music. Simply plug in the transmitter to your mp3 player or music source, turn on your pre-charged headphones, and party on!

DJing a silent disco is just like DJing any other event, with a few considerations:

  1. Share the stage - One of the unique aspects of a silent disco is the ability to stream up to 3 music channels at once. If there are other DJ's playing, then guests can tune in to the DJ of their choice.
  2. Keep an eye on the colors - Silent disco headphones like ours include a lighting system to show which channel guests are on. This helps you see if people are tuning into your mix, or another DJ's so you can try to 'win' them back.
  3. Engage with your crowd - Just like any other setup, you'll need to engage with your crowd to ensure everyone is having a good time. Remember though, if people don't have their headphones on, they may not hear an important announcement or you hyping the crowd up.

RENTALS

A silent disco or silent party, is an event where people dance to music broadcasted through wireless headphones, as opposed to a speaker system.

 

Only the people wearing headphones hear the music being played, making it an awesome choice for venues with noise constraints, or just to create a club-like atmosphere where you can still hold a conversation at a normal volume.

 

A silent disco can be as simple as setting up different playlists on different devices (up to three), so everyone can jam out to one of three choices of music. Or if you want to take things to the next level, you can have live DJs competing and let your audience tune into their favorite one.
