    Default Custom in ear monitors. INPUT WANTED!!!

    So i have been on the market for some custom in ear monitors and i'm wondering what to get. I've been leaning towards Alclair tours, and my budget is $550 US bucks. I'm really looking for something that will really isolate sound while playing drums, and are good for playing live, mainly in a loud church band. please post pics of yours, i'd love to see your customized colors.

    I have alien ears (c1000) and I've heard good things about 1964ears as well.

    I got mine before custom colors were available so mine are just clear.

    I'd suggesting getting 2 different colors to make it really easy to tell them apart.

    I was thinking of getting the dark gray sparkle over clear purple

    I looked at those, and alclairs seem priced better, and are better quality

    that's cool. get those then.......there are a ton of companies out there that will charge way more, with all kinds of claims of superior this and that....it's all hype....the drivers are pretty much all made in the same factory, and put together by these various companies....

    I would stretch for this pair. They are tuned for live performances, and are very good quality. I've been using my pair of UE for years, and they still fit and sound great.

    I looked at those prior to your response, and they look great (and sound great, i'm sure) but the alclair service has been great to me, and they offer a discount for church drummers

    Like glorified iPhone earbuds. I'm not a big frequency nut though. As long as I know where I am in the song and it's not ripping my ears open, I'm good to go.

    I think the biggest thing going from cans or wedges to molded in-ears was the custom fit. I never have to worry about them falling out. It's a relief to have them always work perfectly.
