What is a Silent Disco?
A silent disco or silent party is a new, increasingly popular kind of event where people dance to
music broadcasted through wireless headphones instead of the traditional speaker system.
Only people wearing the headphones can hear the music, making it a perfect avenue for venues
with noise constraints to take. They’re also great for creating a club-like atmosphere, also
maintaining the ability to 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),
or as complex as having multiple live DJs competing for the approval of the audience. Party-
goers can tune into their favorite station, whichever route you decide to go.
Keep in mind while our headphones are great for silent discos, they’re also perfect for any
event you can think of!

When Will My Headphone Rental Arrive?
Customers who are renting can expect our equipment to arrive 1 days before their silent party event. This will give you plenty of time to familiarize yourself with both our equipment and setup instructions. If you’re ever unsure, you can always reach out to us here. We’re here for you, and we’re more than happy to help!
How Do I Return My Headphone Rental?
When your party has finished, you simply need to pack up the equipment and place the included return-shipping label on the outside of the crate. Fed Ex is our carrier. We need to schedule a pick-up the day before the pick-up is needed—this should happen on the first business day following your event. You can also drop the equipment off at Fed Ex location.
Whatever is easier for you works for us. If you choose the latter, make sure to send an email to your customer care rep letting them know the package is on its way back to us.
What Happens if Headphones are Lost, Damaged, or Stolen?
We recommend having reliable security and staff at your event in order to deter theft and/or damage to the rental equipment. Place headphones at entrance and exit to the event space for best control of the audio equipment. We charge a standard $80 replacement fee for any headphones that are lost or damaged. If something happens to the wireless music transmitter, it will cost $280 to replace.
If you would rather protect yourself against the possibility of damage, loss, or theft of equipment, you might want to strongly consider bundling an event rental insurance plan onto your order!
How Long Does the Rental Last?
A standard rental quote will cover usage for a single day event with a next-day headphones return. For longer events, we offer weekly rentals with chargers. The headphones will be shipped to you fully charged, and with approximately 8 hours of battery life. Therefore, if you are planning a multiple-day silent party, you may need to re-charge the headphones in-between days. To do this, you can utilize the charging stations we include in the shipment for multi-day orders. We have weekly rates available for longer events as well. If you’re interested in having hands-off party experiences throughout the year, we offer long-term lease options.
How Do I Pay?
We require a 20% deposit for securing your rental reservation. The remaining 80% will be due 7 days prior to your party date, and is required before the equipment can be shipped out to you. We accept multiple payment methods and all major credit cards. If you need different terms to accommodate your organization or employer, please send us a message and let us know.
Do Your Rentals Include Staff or a DJ?
Rental orders we just ship the equipment to you. If you get full service onsite event yes—we bring the whole party! We provide you with flexible options of either one, three, or even virtual DJs to go along with headsets. This is why we’re such a great option for novice silent disco hosts. We take care of all the entertainment for you. It’s what we’re good at.
