If you’re hearing about a silent disco for the first time in your life, a few questions might come to mind. The first thing that may pop up is,’ how does it work?’
A Silent Disco is a unique way of experiencing music – whether it be a Dj, your own ipod, ipad or phone or even a live band.
As one of many guests, I was wearing wireless headphones at an event last weekend and had an absolute blast. Each headset comes with three different channels which allow you to play a variety of songs catering to different musical tastes. I could hear the sound coming through the headsets crisp and clear anywhere inside or outside the venue. The multi-coloured LED lights on the headphones provided added ambience to the event, and indicated what channel everyone was dancing to.
Even when I distanced myself from the audio source, there was no effect on the sound I was listening to. You can easily and seamlessly hear the music and proceed with your enjoyment on the dance floor.
Having a chat at a busy party has never been easier.
Now, you may wonder how you talk to people when you’re wearing headsets the whole time?
A silent disco atmosphere is actually great for holding a conversation with your friends opposed to a venue with a traditional sound system. There was no need to lose my voice screaming over the booming music. I simply slid the silent disco headphone partially or completely off and chatted freely. Easy!
While you have the headphones off, you should take a moment and observe the crowd. It’s hilarious listening to everyone humming or singing along to different songs.
Ever worried about your neighbours and keeping the noise down at your next birthday party? A silent disco would guarantee maximum fun until late at night as you won’t have to turn down the music. In fact you can turn it up as much as you like since it’s all ‘silent’.
The best thing about this event wasn’t only that it turned out to be a great way to engage people in a unique and most of all fun way. I also loved the fact that it was perfect to engage different age groups at the same time thanks to being able to play multiple songs simultaneously . We just put the kids songs on one channel and the parent playlist on the other one. It was great!
