I'm seeking a sound solution for my upcoming dance performance where 6 dancers sync their movement through in-ear monitors, while the audience experience the performance silently. Any good, low-cost solutions in the community, by any chance? Am basically looking for a much cheaper and less bulky solution than Silent Disco (if I can use ear pods instead of big headphones or transmitter packs), but equally reliable.
I was looking at bluetooth transmitters/splitters, such as Nulaxy, but it only splits into 2 pairs of bluetooth headphones - not enough. I looked into Audio Fusion systems https://audiofusionsystems.com/: They do software based in-ear monitor system using iphones and laptops - essentially designed for bands to do multi-track performance live. Even thought I don't need the multi-track feature, it would still cost $99 per channel/person.
Are there solutions/ideas out there that can benefit my case? What I hope to achieve is that: a digital piece of audio plays throughout the performance, that gets transmitted into the ears of dancers and crews, with low latency (for dancers' synchronization). Hopefully the setup are not bulky - mobility is very important for dancers.
I'm based in NYC. Thanks so much for your thoughts and advices in advance.
