What is a Silent Disco?

The term “Silent Disco” evolved out of necessity as a way for underground parties and raves to be able to operate without being ended early by a noise violation. Now, this technology is used in many ways, but Silent Discos remain the most popular.

Silent Discos are parties involving noise-blocking, wireless headphones that connect to wireless transmitters.

Much like a radio with different stations, the Silent Sound System Transmitter broadcasts multiple channels listeners can switch between. So, country, rap, and rock lovers can finally party together in one room without a fight for the aux cord!

Silent Sound System headphones have the capability to connect to three separate transmitters. When audience members switch between channels, their headphones change color between red, green, and blue to show the channel they are listening to. The color shows other dancers where to tune in if they like someone’s moves!

Oxymoron

The idea of a “Silent” Disco seems contradictory. What’s a party without loud music?

At a Silent Disco, nothing but chatter, laughter, and the shuffling of dancing feet can be heard without wearing a pair of headphones. You may think the silence will be awkward, but after people warm up, it is a great opportunity for dancing, people-watching, and conversation! While the concept may be strange to some, it is revolutionary for everyday parties, restaurants, businesses, and large-scale events, and is a tool for sensory inclusion.

Not Just for Silent Disco

With Silent Disco’s unconventional roots, the uses for the headphones have gotten even more innovative than the traditional Silent Rave. DJs can battle for listeners, bar attendees can switch between televisions to view different programs, or music festival-goers can continue the party after noise ordinances go into effect.

This equipment has also been used for yoga, meditation, and fitness, so students don’t miss anything their instructor is saying. It can also be used for weddings, movie events, guided tours, and as a tool in senior living communities. It makes gatherings more inclusive by helping to limit sensory overload and to aid with hearing and attention difficulties.

Ultimately, Silent Disco headphones are as versatile as the host using them!

Silent Sound System Sunset Silent Disco in Atlantic City, NJ

Sunset Silent Disco at The Wheel on Steel Pier

Silent Sound System is hosting a Sunset Silent Disco at The Wheel on Steel Pier in Atlantic City, NJ on August 9, 2022, from 7-9 pm. Using our 3-Channel Headphones and Transmitters, you’ll be able to switch between three DJs at the same time. We’ve got a stacked lineup of seasoned talent for you to enjoy, so no channel will be the wrong choice!

Here’s who you can expect behind the decks:

Dave Mass

Dave Mass has been actively involved in the underground art and DJ community since 1992. As the founder of TOOWUNPHYVE, one of the longest-running DJ collectives in Philadelphia, Dave has been instrumental in the growth of Philly’s nightlife scene through DJ appearances at events up and down the East Coast and abroad. From Hartford to Miami and SF to Korea, he has figured out what makes people move through his relentless djing over the last 2 decades. Considered by many a “DJ’s DJ,” his sets typically run through several genres when he’s behind the decks while having his roots firmly planted in party rocking.

You can now find Dave Mass at his many residencies; Raven Lounge (Philly), Bally’s Mountain Bar (Atlantic City), Bally’s Beach Bar (Atlantic City), Shenanigan’s (Sea Isle City), Valley Beach (Valley Forge), Kiss Kiss A Go-Go (Atlantic City) and Eden Lounge (Atlantic City) as well as regular guest appearances at Lucky’s Last Chance (Manayunk), Triumph Brewery (Princeton), Infusion Lounge (Philly) and wherever else his craft takes him.

 

DJ Kevin Kong

DJ Kevin Kong has been a veteran Philadelphia nightlife professional since 1999. Following his first feature residency at the wildly popular Automatic Tuesdays weekly in 2001, he went on to host events at iconic venues such as Fluid, Silk City, Barbary, Rumor, PYT, G Lounge, Transit, Medusa, Trestle, R&D Cocktail Bar, various Atlantic City casinos, and countless more.

 

DJ Freedom

As a house music fanatic and veteran disc jockey for over two decades, Darryl Atkins aka DJ Freedom, began his record-spinning journey at a time when the art was reserved for only those with a deep passion to pursue such a career. Prior to the turntables, Freedom’s fundamental nature within rhythmic production found him playing the drums and growing up with the nickname “DJ” (his initials). From this coincidental occurrence, hand in hand with his inherent ability to create rhythms at a young age, DJ’ing was a seemingly natural progression.
Freedom’s events are a household name for partiers looking to hear the finest House music Philly has to offer. In all events, productions, and DJ gigs, Freedom’s goal has been to bring purveyors and partygoers from different musical backgrounds and cultures together for the love of music. Freedom’s musical stylings can reach from Deep to Soulful, Funky to Tech. He refreshingly goes against the grain with his productions and consistently top-notch, unique sets. If you are looking to be taken to another level in the realm of true house music, Freedom’s seasoned professionalism and skills behind his instruments are surely the way to get there.

DJ Express

DJ Express is a club DJ, tour DJ for King Magnetic, and producer. He was the owner and manager of Undaground Set Record Store in Allentown, PA. He is a featured artist on tracks by King Magnetic that can be found on Spotify.

Travis Trip

Stumbling out of the woods of another reality, Travis only has one goal in mind and that is the best vibes for all, alien or human. From the suburbs of Chicago, IL he still focuses all of his energy on the love we all call house music.

On the rising climb to spreading his vibes to all, he’s been mostly playing live shows and not producing as much. Playing recently in the city of Chicago and the woods of Summer Camp and Electric Forest with VIBES Productions, the smiles and dancing continue on. As time flows on, the TRIP he plans on taking everyone on will be intense, and we hope you are all here for the ride!

Debstep

Will Debes is transcending dubstep and house music with his project Debstep. Over the last two years, he has quickly elevated from his bedroom to festival stages with his unique sound.

Silent Sound System’s Story

Silent Sound System, LLC was created by a group of friends and music enthusiasts in 2015. We are a leader in Silent Disco production and are a trademarked brand with unique features that make us an industry leader in Silent Disco technology in the United States. We are locally owned and operated in Northeastern Pennsylvania.

Silent Sound System distributes Silent Disco equipment— headphones, transmitters, audio cables and more. We focus on distributing the highest quality equipment to domestic and international clients, ranging from libraries and public schools to entertainment companies and music festivals.

We have the only headphones on the domestic market that are “future-proof,” with a proprietary auxiliary output allowing the user to connect their headphones to complementary sound equipment, such as recording devices and wearable subwoofers (i.e. BASSpak, SubPac, Woojer). In addition, we offer a free management system, customer support, and custom accessories for all of our equipment, and we are currently developing our own digital system for even easier headphone management.

Silent Sound System also rents equipment, so you can try it before you buy it. Within certain distances, we are also available to fully produce a Silent Disco for you or your event!

What Sets Silent Sound System Apart?

There are a few things that make Silent Sound System different from the rest:

Free Branding

If you contact us prior to your order, we can add your logo to our headphones in high-gloss vinyl. To take advantage of this offer, simply upload your logo during the checkout process. If you missed sending your logo before you received your order, you can also contact us or email orders@silentsoundsystem.com to figure out a solution. If you would like to have your logo light up like the Silent Sound System logo, our Custom Resin Logo Panels can be applied to your order.

Exclusive Aux Out

Our headphones are future-proof— we’re already ready for what comes next. We have a proprietary, auxiliary output jack that is compatible with BASSpak, SubPac, Woojer, and other wearable bass products that give listeners a full-body bass experience without speakers.

Free Management System

Distributing and collecting headphones is the most difficult part of managing any Silent Sound System event, but we make it easy! We provide free headphone numbering as well as a free headphone management binder with corresponding numbers to hold IDs (or other card/collateral). Eliminating confusion means a smoother event for your guests. This system also aids in loss prevention.

Great Reception

Our transmitters can be placed anywhere, and our headphones receive transmissions up to 1,500 feet away. That’s just over four football fields in distance! Create a dancefloor anywhere, and don’t worry about the audio cutting out in a large venue. The radius of your dance floor can be huge, so your parties can be bigger and better than ever.

Free Transport Totes

All orders over 10 headphones come with free heavy-duty, reusable totes for easy transport to and from gigs. Each tote has the capability to be locked with a standard lock. The number of totes provided depends on the number of headphones purchased.
