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!


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!

Transmitters & Mobile Transmitters: What’s the Difference?


Silent Sound System Transmitters have a transmission radius of over ¼ of a mile! They come with the RCA to 3.5mm cable included. Silent Sound System is plug-and-play.

Our standard transmitters are best for DJs, restaurants, bars, clubs, and other indoor event producers or spaces.

Silent Sound System Transmitters must always be plugged into a power source to operate.

Silent Sound System Mobile Transmitters are portable and rechargeable, and they can connect to audio devices wirelessly via Bluetooth! Mobile Transmitters have a transmission distance of up to 900 ft.

Every Silent Sound System Mobile Transmitter comes with a wired, lapel microphone and 3.5mm auxiliary cord.

With both a microphone and audio jack, the Mobile Transmitter gives you the ability to speak over the music without using additional equipment. Compatible Wireless Headset Microphones are available for the Silent Sound System Mobile Transmitter. You can also add a neoprene belt for extra stability while in motion!

Silent Sound System Mobile Transmitters are best for tour guides, yoga, dance, health, wellness, cycling, Zumba, and fitness instructors, as well as outdoor event producers and spaces.

Please note: Mobile Transmitters must be unplugged from the charging source before use.


Silent Sound System’s Story

Silent Sound System, LLC was created by a group of friends, dreamers, and music enthusiasts in 2015. We are locally owned and operated in Northeastern Pennsylvania. 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.

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 to our equipment, we offer a management system, customer support, and custom accessories for all of our headphones, and we are currently developing our own digital system for even easier headphone management.

In addition to selling Silent Disco equipment, Silent Sound System rents equipment, so you can throw your own Silent Disco. Within certain distances, we are also available for hire 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 other Silent Disco equipment:

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 is dependent on the number of headphones purchased. Our Yoga and our Bar and Grill Systems come with locking cases rather than totes due to the smaller number of headphones in the package.

FREE Management System

Distributing and collecting headphones is the most difficult part of managing any Silent Sound System event. We provide FREE headphone numbering as well as a FREE headphone management binder with corresponding numbers to hold the ID (or other card/collateral). Eliminating confusion means a smoother event for your guests. The binder also aides in loss prevention for you as a host.

FREE Branding

If you contact us prior to your order, we can add your logo to our headphones in high-gloss vinyl. If you would like to take advantage of this offer, you can send your logo and your information to As long as we get your message prior to shipment, your headphones will come with your logo! If you missed sending your logo before you received your order, you can also contact us for options on sending your high-gloss vinyl logos for you to apply to the your headphones yourself. Customizing your Silent Disco equipment is a service only Silent Sound System offers!

Great Reception

Our transmitters can be placed anywhere, and our headphones receive transmissions up to 1,500 feet away. This means there is more room to dance and fill a venue without worrying about people’s music cutting in and out. The radius of your dance floor can be huge, which means your parties can be bigger and better than ever!

Exclusive Aux Out

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