Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How much does it cost?
It’s $4.00 per headset per day, and $20 per transmitter per day, with 50% refunded upon return of all equipment in good working order.
SHipping, Delivery, and pickup
We do not ship our headsets. Delivery can be arranged for an additional fee. Pickup is available at no additional charge from Art x Love Studios at 157 King James Way, Akron, OH 44308.
How did YOU get the headsets?
The Knight Foundation donated the funds to acquire them so that they could be made available to everyone in Akron on a not-for-profit basis.
IF this is not for profit, why does it cost anything?
Organizing, cleaning, and charging the equipment takes time. Our price reflects the time it takes our paid team to provide this service.
DO YOU provide dj’s?
Yes, for an additional fee.
How do the headsets work?
Each cordless headset has a power switch, volume control, and three audio channels with LED lights that glow blue, red, or green depending on which channel you listen to. Each channel is specially tuned to the unique frequency of a transmitter.
How do the transmitters work?
Each transmitter has a power cable, power switch, antenna, channel control (1-3), left/right audio ports, and comes with an audio cable that can be plugged into computers, phones, microphones, and can be configured to work with all audio sources. Once plugged in and connected to an audio device, the transmitter sends that audio to whichever channel of the headsets you’d like. We recommend using 2-3 transmitters for all Silent Disco events.
Still don’t get it?
Participants get to choose which channel of audio they want to listen to. If you rent 3 transmitters you can have #1 connected to a DJ, #2 connected to an iPod, and #3 connected to a phone. This would allow listeners three different and unique audio experiences.
What is the equipment’s range?
50-100 yards depending on the number of obstructions (floors, walls, buildings, etc.).
What happens if they get wet or break?
This equipment is not weatherproof. Any loss, damage, or breakage will result in a replacement fee of $40.00 per headset, $250.00 per transmitter, and $10.00 per cable.
What are the product specs & features?
