The concept of a the Silent Disco has been around since the early 90’s when eco activists used the headphones to party outdoors in order to minimise the disturbance to wildlife then fast forward to Chicago in 2002 when Meg Duguid hosted ‘DANCE WITH ME’ a silent dance party, however to some the Silent Disco may still be a complete mystery!

At Silent Discomania we use state of the art fully rechargeable LED headphones that receive the music from powerful transmitters to ensure perfect quality and great range.

The music source is then plugged into the transmitter and away you go, you can have up to 3 transmitters running three separate music sources.

Full payment is required in advance of your shipping date in order to secure the headphones for your booking.

We also require a refundable security deposit to cover the charges in the unlikely event that you loose, break or damage any of our kit, this deposit varies depending on what kit you hire.

Our equipment is so easy to set up and use. You will receive full set up instructions with the order or just click here for our online easy follow instructional films page showing you how to set up all our available hire kit. If you still have a problem we are always here to chat through set up. Just call or text: 07976 820249.
