How to set-up & DJ your own Silent Disco

It’s so easy, my dog could do it! (Well, actually, it does require opposable thumbs.)

Below is a visual guide starring my dog, “Pascal,” to show you how!

(It is in the “story” style, so you click on the image to get it to advance or click on the left of the image to get it to play the previous slide(s). )

Steps to set-up, plug-in and DJ your own Silent Disco Dance Party.

Read on to learn how to plug in your phone, tablet, or laptop into the transmitters that we include when your rent our headphones. Doing so allows you to DJ your own silent disco dance party with your own playlists.

#1) When your rentals arrive, do a sound check first thing.

Your rentals will arrive two days before your party, open the box(s) and locate the transmitter cases so you can do a sound check long before your event.

#2) Open up the transmitter cases and plug them into an electrical outlet.

They will turn on and already be on the correct channel. No need to adjust anything.

#3) Next, plug the supplied aux cord into the “Audio in” jack on the transmitter and the other end into the “Headphone” jack on your device.

#4) Or, use Bluetooth to connect/pair the transmitter with your device.

Use the Bluetooth if you don’t have a “headphone” jack on your device or if you need to have a wireless connection between the transmitter and your device -especially helpful if it is your cell phone.

#5) Repeat this with each of the three transmitters we supply. You will need any combination of three devices; one for each transmitter.

#6) Queue up your favorite playlist, grab a pair of headphones, turn them on and start your dance party!

If you are using a streaming account, remember that you will need three different accounts unless you have the family plan. You will use one account for each device.

If you do have the family plan, it allows you to use multiple devices on the same account simultaneously.

We like Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Amazon Music and Pandora best.

Are you ready to rent headphones for your party?

Can we use our own DJ for our Silent Disco Dance Party?

Can we use our own DJ?

You can absolutely use your own DJ. Most of my clients do. The transmitters are built into a briefcase so that all you have to do is plug in the electric. No wiring or changing settings is required. You plug your audio playing device(s) into the cord(s) coming out of the transmitter(s) and you are ready to party.

Set-up of my equipment is literally the time it takes to open the briefcase and plug in the power cord. “Done.”

From there, you plug into the provided aux cord and set the volume in your audio device. (It is set up to accommodate phones, computers, tablets, iPods and mp3 players of all types. I provide two other types of adapters to accommodate most professional DJ equipment.

Note that I make sure you get the equipment at least two days in advance so that you have time to do a sound check and call me with any questions.

How long does shipping take?

Shipping is anywhere within the USA within five business days. I am in New York State, so, if you live close by, it takes less time. *Of course I have to receive payment far enough ahead for it to clear before I ship. **As noted in my website, shipping is free. And that is both ways.

How it works:

Payment – I need to receive the rental fee and security deposit before I ship your equipment. Once I receive the equipment back without loss, you get the security deposit back. We would also sign a contract that says how much each lost or damaged item costs in case of loss.

The equipment – you get three transmitters so that headphone wearers can choose between three channels of different music. They can switch anytime during the party and they have their own volume control too.

The music – I have put on these parties using 3 DJ’s (one broadcasting on each channel), 1 DJ (That 1 DJ broadcasting 3 different songs on the 3 different channels), and also with no DJ at all (just the devices playing 3 different playlists automatically, 1 to each channel, the playlists were set up ahead of time)
