Slide2:

The concept of a  silent disco  was born out of the need to create a fun and enjoyable celebration involving music that did not bother non-participants in any manner.  The  silent party   . Whether you are the host of such a party or simply a participant, a quality set of headphones will improve your party experience significantly.  With that in mind, here are a few things you should consider before buying a pair of  silent disco headphones .

Slide3:

HEADPHONE COST Considering that your new headphones will be subjected to a fair bit of rough use, go for something mid-range. A good pair of headphones will cost you around £20-30.  Anything lower and you will have to settle for unknown brands or even knock-offs.  Audio equipment is an entity that adheres to the law of diminishing returns. That is to say, the returns (as in better sound quality) do not keep pace with the increase in price (cost of equipment) beyond a point. 

Slide4:

ON THE EAR VS. OVER THE EAR The debate around on the ear vs. over the ear can get vociferous.  In on the ear design, the cups of the headphone sit directly on your ear. In over the ear design, the cups of the headphone sit around your ears thus covering them completely.  Over the ear headphones offer better sound quality, noise isolation and greater comfort. Depending upon the  silent disco  you attend and the type of music it’s playing, you can choose either amongst the two.

Slide5:

IR VS. RF Music is streamed to a wireless headphone in two ways. One is using IR, or infrared, while the other is using RF, or radio frequency. IR headphones are excellent when it comes to sound quality and also offer good resistance against external interference. On the downside, they fare poorly as far as transmission distance (typically lower than 10 metres) and the ability to penetrate obstacles RF headphones offer tremendous transmission distance (in excess of 100 metres), excellent obstacle penetration, good quality sound (albeit lesser than IR headphones), and decent immunity against external interference. 

Slide6:

NUMBER OF AUDIO CHANNELS Headphones with either two or three channels are the norm for  silent party events . In addition to the benefits of an on-ear design, headphones with two channels offer better high-frequency performance. Three channel headphones, on the other hand, perform better with low-frequency audio and open up your music options. This means tracks high on bass sound great with three channel headphones. 

Slide7:

DURABILITY One of the most important things you need to consider when choosing a pair of  silent disco headphones , durability, in the end, is a function of price.  Costlier headphones are made out of better quality materials, which have a direct impact on their longevity. If budget is a constraint, make sure to pick a headphone that at least has a sturdy headband and robust joints. As stated previously, headphones are arguably the most essential part of  silent disco equipment .
