Dukesy your on about Silent discos where you hand out wireless headphones to the guests ?


Yes. no idea yet how they work, I assume its using some legal vhf frequency or inductive loop system.

Had a client ask about dry hiring one the other day, no idea why as I don't actively advertise hiring ordinary equipment anymore, let alone something that specialised.

Done a few of these.

The Master out of the mixer goes to a transmitter (instead of any amps) and everyone has a set of wireless headphones on the frequency of the transmitter. Normally the headphones have a switchable channel (A and B) and you have 2 DJs, one on each channel and the dancers can choose which DJ they listen to.

Here's the one I did



The company supplies the transmitters and all headphones (many hundreds of headphones). The customers pay 5 in plus 5 deposit which you get back if you don't break your headphone set. The venue supplies the DJs, mixers, lights.

An interesting read.

I can't see this catching on, as most peole don't want the hassel factor.

 

Oh I don't know, It's 8 years since my last post and I'm still going strong, so I must have 'backed the right horse' and be doing something right :-) Technology's moved on a bit over the last 8 years, iPods and CD's are out, Apple tablets are in, signals being fed into the PA via Bluetooth, frequently directly to the speakers, controlled with an app on a smart phone.
Nice to see the forum's still on line, it's a shame no one posts on it anymore.
