By |2020-08-11T14:56:17-04:00August 10th, 2020|2020|

Have you ever seen people dancing to no music, but wearing glowing headphones? Then you have witnessed a silent disco!  Quiet Events has been hosting these types of events since 2012!

What is a silent disco?

A silent disco is a party where there is no music playing through a speaker system. You can only hear the music playing through glowing headphones. On the headphones, you can rotate anywhere from three to ten channels of music. You can adjust the size of the headphones, as well as the volume, to your preference. Check out what an in-person party can look like here.

Don’t have 1000 friends and three live DJs standing by? No problem! Easily host parties of all ages, as small as 10 people, in your backyard.

Here are 21 benefits of hosting a silent disco party so you can have the time of your life at your next event.

Party outdoors without bothering your neighbors

In the age of social distancing, having an indoor party is not necessarily ideal. Easily have your party in your backyard without any loud noise (except maybe your singing).

Host the silent party anywhere, no power outlets needed

If you rent from Quiet Events, they provide cordless transmitters, headphones, and mics, with a 12-hour charge, so you can literally party anywhere without needing power.

Stay socially distanced from other attendees

If there is a need to stay socially distanced, you can easily stay 6 feet away from your dancing partner, and still have a good time. You will be able to tell which channel of music they are listening to and join them in their dance moves.

No DJ required

Set up is simple when you host a silent disco party. You just need anywhere from one to ten sound devices with playlists downloaded to each device. Anyone, at any age, can set up the system, watch the video here to show you.

Control the volume

On each headphone, you get to control how loud or soft you want to hear the sound. People with disabilities such as Autism and Hyperacusis can party alongside you, with no sound issues.

No heavy speaker system required

There are no heavy speaker systems to be dragged into the event space. The sound streams through everyone’s headphones, so your party also will not be shut down due to any noise ordinances.

Communicate with your friends easier

Have you ever had a hard time hearing your friends at the club? Well not at a silent party. Place the headphones around your neck to easily have a conversation with your friends, since there is no loud music blasting through speakers.

Never get bored with the music

With anywhere from three to ten channels of music, the chance of you not finding something to listen to is slim to none. Never be bored again with the music selection at an event.

Save money

No need to pay a high cover at a club anymore when you host a silent event. Rentals start as low as $6 a headphone, request a quote to learn more.

Cut out distractions

Wearing headphones means you are more focused on the music. Think of it as the shower mentality, singing along without anyone “listening”. For people with disabilities, they have the power to control the volume and cut out any outside distractions so they can also feel included.

The bartender gets your drink order right

Have you ever ordered a drink at a bar or club with blasting music and the order comes out wrong? That’s never a problem at any silent disco party. Whoever is making your drink, your friend, or hired bartender, the order will come out correct each time.

Feel comfortable

Do you consider yourself a wallflower? Or maybe you think you are too old or too young for certain events. You won’t have that problem at a silent disco. All ages and personalities become one large dancing and singing family, making everyone feel welcome.

Have the option to use your own headphones

Don’t love the idea of using rented headphones? Not a problem. Companies like Quiet Events rent belt clips, so you can plug in your personal headphones to the device, while still being able to switch between three channels of music.

Make new friends at a silent disco

Whether you are a guest at a silent disco or maybe hosting a neighborhood one, you can easily make new friends. Pay attention to what colors everyone’s headphones are and migrate over towards them on that channel, to show them you also love the song they are listening to. Smile, have some laughs, and sing the night away with your new friend.

No ringing in the ears at the end of the night

At the last concert or live DJ performance you attended, did you leave with a ringing in your ears due to the loudspeaker system? That’s never a problem at a quiet event, make the party as loud or as soft as you want.

 Sing your heart out like at Karaoke

Do you love karaoke? Well, a silent disco can feel just like that, without judgments from your peers, since they can’t hear you anyway! So sing your heart out all you want.

Reduce anxiety

Whether you are hosting or attending a silent disco, wearing the headphones can reduce anxiety when you are around large crowds. You can easily stay in your own world, without feeling anxious around others. Participation is not necessary at silent discos, just enjoy the beats!

Make a new love connection

Do you have a hard time approaching people at bars or clubs? Silent discos make it easy to talk to strangers and start up a conversation. Watch which color their headphone is on, point to your headphone to show them that you are on the same channel, give a thumbs up, a smile, and strike up a conversation since you now have something in common!

Distance is never an issue

Most silent disco headphones, like the ones from Quiet Events, have a range of 1500 feet so distance is never a problem for silent discos.

Prevent theft

Hosting a party but afraid people will steal the headphones? There are several ways to prevent this, such as renting from a company that uses silent disco anti-theft devices in each headphone.

It’s fun!

Sounds pretty obvious but it’s true! There’s nothing more fun than listening to music while dancing and singing with your friends (old and new). Try something different and host your own silent party using party headphones today.

Silent Disco Technology Taken Up a Notch

By |2020-07-30T14:55:08-04:00July 30th, 2020|2019, Press|

Silent disco parties have regained momentum in recent years. Early on they were used at music festivals, but the trend has now surpassed the main stages. Today, they are being used for various types of events, some of which we’ve hosted. They’ve become popular for conferences, fitness classes and of course, wedding receptions. If you are thinking about arranging your own silent disco, here are a few pointers to help you on your way.

Headphones are Key

When it comes to arranging a silent disco you shouldn’t focus solely on costs. Your event doesn’t have to be extravagant to be successful, but there are aspects that you shouldn’t just try to save money on.

It goes without saying, headphones are a prerequisite for your overall enjoyment at a silent disco. Whether you go for over-the-ear style or your own in-ear headphones (with the use of a belt clip), it’s worth going for some that are on the higher end rather than inexpensive models. The more expensive headphones have usually passed through tests to help protect the consumer’s hearing.

The World Health Organization has warned that a billion teens and young adults are at risk of hearing loss due to loud music.  That makes it even more important to look after your ears when attending musical events. Most festivals have large speakers blaring audio, with some being extremely close to the front row revelers. Alternatively, silent discos allow you to listen to music at your desired level with a volume control on the headset.

Three live DJ's on a stage

Lighting has quite an impact on the appeal and success of a silent disco. Luckily this doesn’t have to be complicated. A simple lighting set up on stage, using LED light, can be a good way of bringing people in. For example, we use colors that match our glowing headphones (blue, red and green) to bring it all together.

Additionally, handing out glow sticks can be a simple and very effective way of creating a party atmosphere. It gets the audience excited and adds another visual element to the nightlife scene.

Don’t Forget Wireless Transmitters

In order for people to hear music through their headphones, you will need a wireless transmitter. The transmitter sends audio signals out through radio frequency.

You should consider the size and materials (makeup) of the venue as these factors may impact wireless signals, which in turn can affect the overall enjoyment of the event.

Of course, Quiet Events has all the necessary equipment to ensure that your event is one to remember, for all the good reasons. Head over to our rentals page to check out the hardware!
