Back in 2011 we invested in a small stock of Silent Disco Equipment to test the market. The concept became such a success that we have since increased our stock levels to cater for demand. Apart from the novelty factor there are very practical uses worth considering. Switch your party over to Silent Disco later in the evening, and you can carry on all night with worrying about your neighbours.
Systems consist of a small wireless transmitter which you can plug your music source into. Headsets are then tuned into the broadcasting channel with a range of up to 100m.
Here are a few commonly asked questions:
Question - Can you have different channels playing at the same time?
Answer - Yes, the kit comes with a dual transmitter so you can plug in two sound sources. For example you can have two iPods plugged in playing different music styles. A short press of the power button on the headsets, and they will scan to the next channel. The lights on the headsets change colour so you can easily see what channel someone is listening to. The lights also flash in time with the music which look amazing in a dark room.
Question - How long do the batteries last?
Answer - It depends a bit on how loud you are playing the music, but they tend to last between 4 and 6 hours.
Question - How do you charge them?
Answer - The headsets come pre-charged so it's highly unlikely you will need to worry about charging. We do however include a multi charger should you need to charge any up.
Question - We live a long away from Wiltshire - Can you send them to us?
Answer - Silent Disco is fortunately one of the things we can can offer a delivery option. It's worth noting however that we do need some notice to get things organised, so this option is better for longer lead times. We do take a deposit which we refund when the kits comes back safely. The deposit that we charge for this service is slightly larger than when you come and pick up the equipment yourselves.
Question - What happens if we loose or break some headsets?
Answer - The reception range on these headsets is up to about 100 meters, so people do occasionally wonder off and they can get left in fields, bedrooms etc, and can sometimes suffer damage from over excited party goers! We advise hirers to keep an eye on where the headphones go, and warn guests to take care of them - We charge £25.00 for any lost or broken headphones - This is about how much it costs us to replace them.

Silent discos, in which people dance to music played through personal headphones rather than speakers, was once the preserve of music festivals and special club nights. But now it is becoming increasingly popular at weddings and private parties, enabling teenagers to dance to their hearts' content without keeping their parents or the neighbours awake all night.
And the fact that dancers can choose between two or more different channels (With our equipment you can choose up to 3 channels)means classical music fans waltzing to Schubert can in theory share the same floor as ravers partying to hard-core techno music. Its origins are said to date back to an obscure 1969 Finnish sci-fi film called Ruusujen aika, but its popularity has soared in Britain since it appeared at the 2005 Glastonbury music festival.
James Johnson and his wife Kirsty, of Glasgow, had a silent disco at their wedding reception in Stobo Castle in the Scottish Highlands in June, with Motown on one channel for older guests and current hits aimed at the younger ones. Mr Johnson, a 27-year-old property manager, said: "It went down far better than I expected. I had my doubts about it, thinking it was just for younger people – you only ever see them at these festivals.
"But everybody loved it, all our parents went daft on it. There was an old Auntie with her headphones, flicking the switch between channels and putting the volume up." Mollie Nock, 15, of Pangbourne in Berkshire, experienced her first silent disco, which she described as "a load of out of tune people singing and dancing", at the Reading Festival last weekend.
She now plans to have one at her 16th birthday party in two months. "It was so much fun. I don't know why it's more interesting and enjoyable than a normal disco, but for some reason it seems less awkward," she said "It feels freer and nobody really cares. It's ridiculous because you could be listening to one channel and your friend to another and be dancing completely out of sync. It's hilarious.
