This usually means that the device playing the music is not turned all the way up.
If the music is playing on a phone, laptop or tablet, make sure that the volume is turned all the way up on both the hardware and the software. (turn your headphones down before you do that)
If it is a DJ-controller/audio-mixer-board, that doesn’t need to be turned all of the way up, but it still does need to be turned up higher than you have it.
Make sure the DJ keeps her Silent Disco headphone volume at no higher than 50%. If she has headphones much higher, then she is going to be setting the controller/mixer/laptop/phone/tablet output volume too soft.
If you are using a phone, iPad, iPod, or computer, start with all of the volumes all the way up.
Next listen with the headphones and turn down the loudest device to match the volume of the other two.
You want all channels transmitting approximately the same volume so that when users switch channels on the headphones, they don’t have to adjust the volume knob.
If you are using a DJ mixer, they go a lot louder, so, you want to be listening in the headphones while you turn it up. Have your own headphones at about 50% volume when you do that. That way, nobody will be complaining about their headphones being too soft when they turn them up higher.
The only thing to “set-up” is to plug in the transmitters to both electricity and your audio devices.
-There are three transmitters to power, so you may want to have a power strip handy. -I supply the wires that go from your audio device to the transmitters. -All you have to do is to plug in your device and turn it on.
Oh yeah, you have to make sure you turn up the volume on your device and press play.
I would suggest that it will take about 5 minutes to get get everything plugged in if you don’t count opening up the boxes.
It will take you longer to decide what music to play than it will to plug in the three transmitters.
And once you plug them in, there is nothing more to do. They are ready to go. This 3 minute video gives you an overview for plugging into professional devices such as a dj would use. https://youtu.be/l3ymUKY7jKM
Leave it on the “low” setting unless you have a football field sized area you are trying to fill.
The “low” versus “high” refers to signal strength and not to music volume.
It will not affect the music volume. Also, when it is on “high” it can cause a clicking static noise if a headphone gets too near the transmitter and all of the headphones on that channel can hear it when it happens.
Only use the high setting if you are in a huge area and/or some of the guests are losing reception in their headphones.
The “off” position turns the unit off, but there is no reason to do that due to how I have it set up. Simply unplug the power strip, and leave the transmitter switch on “low”.
The security deposit is different depending on the size of your order. For your convenience, I have listed it below. below 40 headsets $250 40–100 Headsets $350 101-200 Headsets $450 201-300 Headsets: $550 301-400 Headsets: $650 401-500 Headsets: $750 501-600 Headsets: $850 601 + Headsets: $1,000
In most cases, we collect and hold the security amount upfront. Yes, you have to have the money on hand, but assuming that nothing goes wrong, I will be returning it to you.
If headphones are lost during the rental, they are billed at $45 per headphone and taken from the security.
Free! Shipping of the headphones costs you zero dollars! There is no shipping fee for you! I pay shipping for you both ways.
When you get your packages, there will be a prepaid label in the sleeve under the original. You simply switch that label out. Then drop them off at your local FedEx office or contact FedEx to have them pick it up.
I need your final payment to clear before I send you the headphones. Your headphones arrive to you 2 days before your event and if you are on the West Coast, it takes 5 days for them to ship to you. So exceptions can be made, but I usually recommend that full payment be made 10 days before your party.
