Hire Headphones

Hire headphones, why would you rent a pair of ‘phones? One great reason is that headphone rental is cheaper than purchasing cans, particularly if you only want to use noise-cancelling headphones, or wireless or silent event headphones for a party, a performance or for your personal use.

Hire Headphones – Simple and Quick

At Place Over Ears, you can hire headphones in four simple steps using our online shop and secure payment system. We’ll deliver your audio kit one working day before your first day of hire and we will arrange collection the next working day after your last day of hire. No hassle, no fuss.

When you hire headphones you can enjoy your favourite music on them, like this image of a lady wearing her headphones

Delivery and Collection of Hired Cans

Place Over Ears will deliver your headphones one working day before your first day of hire.

Following your last day of hire, your headphones hire package will be returned by you or collected by us the next working day; depending on your hire order with us;

  • If your order is under 2kg and you are a household customer, you’ll need to return the headphones via Collect+ service and a pre-paid returns label will be included with your package. Learn how to return via Collect+.
  • If your order is 2kg or greater and you are a business customer, we’ll arrange collection from your delivery address using secure parcel service. We will be in contact ahead of this to arrange your collection.

It’s important to return the headphones the day marked ‘Send Back’ on your order documentation, otherwise we charge late return fees (equal to 2 days extra hire as a minimum). Learn more about delivery and return during headphone rental.

Nice and Clean Headphones

We thoroughly clean our headphones with a non-perfumed, non-streaking anti-bacterial cleaning solution after each hire. Once freshened, the headphones are tested and sealed in hygienic packaging ready for their next trip out.

When you hire headphones from Place Over Ears, your package will include their instruction manuals, so rest assured that you’ll know exactly how to set up and enjoy the kit.

Headphones Hire and Deposits

Place Over Ears requests a small deposit for every product you rent from us. You can see these amounts in your basket and order, and we do not charge your payment card for these amounts at the time of your order. Deposits are chargeable in the event of late return of hired items and missing accessories. Politely, they are not an insurance against loss or irreparable damage to your hire items. Learn more about deposits and fees.

Loss, Theft or Irreparable Damage to the Kit

We don’t want the fear of loss or potential damage to put you off headphones hire. So here’s how it works. In the very rare case of either loss, theft, or total breakage of hire headphones, we’ll calculate a final replacement value of the kit;

For any non-Place Over Ears branded headphones;

  • The price we paid for the headphone (which is often less than the price in the shops)
  • Less any discretionary amounts we offer to subtract based on the kit’s previous hires.
  • An administration charge.

  • Place Over Ears PH020 silent disco headphones – £37.00 per
  • Place Over Ears PH018 wireless headphones – £29.00 per
  • Place Over Ears PH021 wireless headphone transmitter – £140.00 per
