We supply the wireless silent-disco headphones (fully disinfected) and the battery powered portable transmitters through our rental program.
We also supply a lapel mic that plugs into our portable transmitters so your class can hear you.
You supply your music using your cell phone, which connects to our transmitter via BlueTooth.
Silent disco? Why silent disco headphones instead of regular ones.
You connect your voice and music to our transmitter, which in turn, broadcasts to the wireless headphones worn by your students.
Silent disco headphones have a 300 meter range (328 yards) which allows your class to spread out more – social distance style!
They’re perfect for kickin’ some corona butt in the year of the pandemic!
Bluetooth headphones with their wimpy range of about 30 feet won’t work for this gig!
Your voice will reach your student’s ears directly through the headphones via the lapel mic connected to the transmitter we send. Your music is coming through the headphones too, and you can adjust the volume of each independently.
The headphones give you an easy way to charge admission when you are outdoors. Only those who pay admission will receive the headphones.
If you were simply using a PA or loudspeakers for your session, anybody could join in and they would not have to pay. With the headphones, you simply charge per headphone.
Boom! Who’s a money magnet? You are!
Headphones allow better focus and volume control!
Our over-the-ear headphones help your yoga class to focus because they block out ambient noises from crowds and traffic. No more distractions!
Each headphone has its own volume control, so your participants can adjust it to their own listening comfort.
Plot Twist! The headphones allow you to have multiple classes simultaneously in the same space!
These headphones are the three channel type with a channel switch for the user. This feature would only be used if you decide to have multiple classes being taught at the same time.
Can you imagine three different levels of yoga taught to an open-invitation outdoor audience? No more worrying about the advanced students being bored while the beginning students are being overwhelmed.
The teacher on channel one could be teaching at a beginner level, -channel two intermediate, and channel three would be advanced level.
Each teacher would have their own transmitter. (Each transmitter represents a channel) You could have up to three teachers or three classes being taught simultaneously in the same space.
Your participants would decide which teacher they want to follow with a flick of the channel switch.
When teaching only one class at a time, all students would stay on the same channel.
Wait! Are these Silent Disco Headphones fully disinfected and Covid 19 safe??
Shipping time also kills coronaviruses and it takes time for them to be shipped from our place to yours. Recent studies show that the viruses die off after 3-5 days from a hard surface and less than one day from a porous surface.
Depending on how far away from us you live, the shipping time alone will kill any coronavirus particles. We have your safety as #1!
You might want to have disinfectant wipes available on your end for your students, but we take care of the headphones.
What makes it all work?The magic of the portable silent disco transmitter
You can use an audio cable or Bluetooth to connect your music to the transmitter.
You probably don’t want to carry your phone around while teaching yoga. So instead of using the audio cable, we recommend using Bluetooth connectivity for your music.
With Bluetooth, you are not tied to your phone. But if you want to carry your phone around, you do have the option of using an audio-cable for your connection.
They hear you better!How the mic works.
As shown in the image above, the microphone is a wired lapel mic. The transmitter is a belt-pack. (It has a belt clip so you can wear it on your belt or fasten it to your pocket or waistline)
The transmitter has a mute button for the mic as well as a separate volume knob for the mic.
When you are not talking, you just tap the mute button to cut out any ambient noise. Then tap again when you need to be heard.
You would control your music volume using your phone.

Which costs more? A regular DJ with loudspeakers or a Silent Disco DJ?
Obviously one sound system using loudspeakers can be heard by several hundred or a thousand people, but one headphone can only be heard by one person.
So with a small party, a silent disco system is going to cheaper to rent than the traditional loudspeakers but with a large party the number of headphones required will cause silent disco to me more expensive. Let’s look at some actual numbers
Regular DJ: $1000 -In my area, a DJ (using loudspeakers) that is considered professional quality is going to start around a $1000 and that price remains the same no matter how many guests are invited.
Silent Disco Rental: $521.50 to rent 100 headphones. The price goes up as you add headphones (and down if you need fewer) because you need one headphone per guest. The price goes up as the guest count increases.
With a sound system that uses loudspeakers, one price fits all!
Silent Disco: If you want to rent silent disco headphones in 2020, it costs between $4 and $7 per headphone rental depending on how many you rent.
At www.silent-disco-rental.com, our price is as low as $4 per disinfected headphone for larger quantities but the price per unit is higher for rental of smaller numbers.
Here are some round number examples: (You can rent exact numbers of headphones for your party.)“Pricing”
What is your cost for renting our fully disinfected silent disco headphones?
Pricing depends on quantity.
Examples of current pricing:
Rental of 20 = $177.50 Rental of 30 = $222.50 Rental of 40 = $266.50 Rental of 50 = $309.00 Rental of 75 = $415.25 Rental of 100=$521.50 Rental of 150=$729.00 Rental of 200=$936.50 Rental of 300=$1344.00 Rental of 500=$2144.00
(We also charge a security deposit, but that get’s returned to you when the equipment comes back safely. Learn more about that on our pricing page.)
At my company, the DJ’s fee is an additional $197 per hour if we are supplying the music, the music players, the light show, our DJ skills and our master of ceremony skills.
The prices above don’t include the cost of a DJ, but with silent disco, you don’t need to hire a DJ.
Or to say it more accurately, our equipment makes it much easier to skip hiring and paying the professional DJ, again, saving you money.
We provide the professional equipment and all you need to supply is your cell phone streaming your favorite music playlist.
You don’t need a DJ because you connect your phone (or laptop or tablet) directly to the transmitters that we send you with the headphones. (Connect with either Bluetooth or an aux cord)
The transmitters broadcast your music to the headphones.
We send you three transmitters. One for each channel on the three channel headphones.
Three times as much musical value in silent disco headphones.
With three channels available to play three separate playlists, your guests have three options of music at any given time. (They can switch which channel their headphones are listening to with the flick of a switch on their headphones at any time during the event)
So silent disco offers three times more music to your guests than a traditional loudspeaker system. This adds to the perceived value of silent disco over traditional loudspeakers.
This three-channel increase in music options for your guests means less reliance on a professional DJ’s ability to choose the one unique song that should be played at any given time, which makes it quite a bit easier to justify saving the cost of hiring a DJ and using only automated playlists on your cell phone.
Again the increased value as a party format leans toward the silent disco headphones!
Yes, a professional DJ can add to the fun and three professional DJ’s can be even more fun than one! Each DJ broadcasts on their own channel (to their own transmitter).
With three channels to stream unattended-automated playlists, there is a much greater chance of at least one of them having a fantastic song playing at any given time.
If you are charging admission, guests are willing to pay a higher admission fees for Silent Disco Parties.
So you will bring in more money from a silent disco party versus a traditional party with loudspeakers.
The increased income from a silent disco can pay for the headphone rentals
Obviously, this doesn’t pertain to wedding receptions or parties where you are not trying to make money, but it is important to note that people a silent disco format to be more valuable.
Silent Disco is a hot and new trend that is easily three times the fun of a regular party!
How about you? Have you had the chance to compare the two? Which format is worth more to you? -Let us know in the comments.
A fad is something that pops up in a culture for no particular reason and then disappears as quickly as it came.
A trend is something that happens for a reason and stays around for the long haul because it fulfills a genuine need.
As a full-time professional DJ for more than 30 years, I have some insights that definitely suggest Silent Disco is a trend instead of a fad, but don’t take my word for it! Take a look at my evidence.
Let’s take a look at known history and how it points us toward the Silent Disco format emerging as the industry standard instead of the new kid in town status that it currently enjoys.
Think of the history of a party from a guest’s perspective.
First there was the live band.
Guests had no choice in the type of music or the songs that the band played. They also had no control over the volume. Because of the volume question, party planners had to be careful when and where the party was – or the cops would show up to shut it down.
Next there was the DJ playing pre-recorded music.
Suddenly the listener’s choice of songs and styles had exploded. One band could only play the songs they knew while the DJ could play any song every recorded. Likewise, one band could only play their own style of music whereas a DJ could play any style of music as long as they had the record.
The historical trend was toward more music options and more listener empowerment. We’ll see by the end of this article how Silent Disco headphones have become the next logical step.
There were additional factors from the past that drove the demand by users to want more control over their own music.
Technology at home increased the guest’s expectations when they got to the party
1) Home stereo systems gave listeners control of their own volume. They developed their own concern about disturbing other people with their music.
2) The party guest soon had as much music at home as the DJ did.
Proliferation of Radio and Internet continued to expand listener’s music preferences to a point where being subject to a DJ’s choice seemed limiting.
3) People started wearing headphones in public. Handheld players and streaming digital music give them unlimited music choices available to them any time. With the addition of headphones, users could listen to their own music without disturbing other people.
Nowadays, when they are not at a party, people simply expect to have unlimited music choice, headphones and their own volume control.
They always have control over their music. They have autonomy over whether they want to listen to music. They have listening comfort in the form of their own volume knob.
So, how does that make them feel when they go to a party with a traditional speaker system that is playing so loud that they can’t listen to their own music and they can’t control the volume?
Viewed in this light, a silent disco dance party doesn’t seem futuristic at all! It seems like it should have come around years ago!
Look at the problems the headphones solve from a user experience standpoint! 1) Three channels of music instead of one! This means you get a choice! Also there is no more feeling guilty about liking a different song than your dancing partner!- 2) Their own volume control! This means you get a choice! No more feeling bad about wanting the music louder or softer than your dance partner! 3) They get the option of not listening to the music at all! This may be the biggest win of all! Especially for people who want to talk to each other at parties.
And with the noise problem taken care of, event planners don’t have to worry when or where they throw the parties.
4) You can now have a party anywhere and anytime without the noise – within reason, of course. Not only do the headphones allow dance parties in libraries and on lakeside beaches, but they allow multiple entertainment acts in the same space without volume problems.
From a historical standpoint, the changing expectations of party guests point toward Silent Disco as a trend that is going to grow in magnitude and stay with us in the years ahead as a popular dance party format.
But wait! There’s more!
Supply-side reasons why Silent Disco is a trend instead of a fad:
There are other factors driving the trend from the supply side that make the equipment readily available and attractive to the consumer. I’ve listed a few of them below:
A) The technology has become good enough and inexpensive enough to make it cost effective.
B) The technology is easy to add onto existing DJ sound systems. Professional mobile DJ’s don’t have to change anything in order to add headphones to their list of options.
C) The technology is easy for the general public to use; -No professional DJ required. If you rent the equipment from someone like us, music can be streamed from a Spotify playlist (or other similar services) through consumer level devices like a phone, iPod or tablet.
D) Shipping services are inexpensive enough that we can rent the equipment to you at cost effective rates. Companies like us at www.silent-disco-rental.com ship it to your door no matter how remote.
E) There is still room for growth momentum, making an already remarkable experience even better, so the user Wow-Factor will continue to drive demand through word of mouth.
In summary, it is clear that the Silent Disco format is a trend instead of a fad. It provides high value at a reasonable cost by fulfilling a legitimate need and providing benefits for the users that are simply expected in today’s culture.
