    Default In ear monitors

    Any PDF'ers use in ear monitors? What brand?

    Product reviews please. Comfort?

    Type of situation/ venue size you use them in?

    Any advise would be appreciated.

    My situation will be small clubs / bars.

    Do I need them? Should I use them?

    Are they all wireless? Those seemed to be the only ones I can find.

    Thanks again in advance for any help.

    Here's what i'm currently using. XLR Cable sent from the Aux of the PA, roughly mixed to my liking (or mixed on an app if its a wireless desk setup), running into my Behringer Powerplay P1, then my IEM's, which are currently Shure SE215's, but i'm in the process of starting a custom order from Cosmic Ears. I find this the simplest way to run it, no wireless systems, no messing about, I can have it up and running in 5 mins.

    Roland, Dauz, FAT KAT and Koby Electronics, and loads of Percussion

    4 Kits and 8 Snares, and I still don't have enough!

    Yes.

    Westone and AlClair. They both are great.

    IMO, no need for expensive wireless versions for drummer. I use a Presonus HP2 for amp live.

    Small venues just run aux mix with strings and vocals in one ear, and opposite ear use Eargasium ear plug. I always try to protect my hearing being a pilot.

    Alclair in my studio with great fidelity. But would take them out for larger venues.

    I highly recommend using IEMs. A lot more upsides than downsides.

    I’m using 64 Audio with custom molds. They were a bit much, but they are worth it.

    Shure SE215 with a Behringer P1 which gets a monitor signal from the mixing board via a XLR cable in its right channel. I mix my own click in the left channel which comes from my phone (click track is a mono MP3 uploaded as a song). This way I can balance the click to be slightly on the left and still hear the monitor mix in my both ears.

    Works like a charm.

    How do you make the click track - mobile phone app or something? I'm using the Tempo click app, however its on Android and doesn't have the "time" function for setlists, so I can't run a click track for x seconds then automatically move to the next. I believe the apple variant does allow this but I don't have any apple devices.

    Looking at 3 drivers a side, possibly quads. Haven't made any moves yet, but will probably be placing my order in the new year. Need some impressions sorting anyway for some ACS earplugs (I get them for the price of the impressions because of a great scheme worth looking at if you're in the UK. if you want more info PM me ).

    I'm just using a Tama rhythm watch mini or a metronome app on my iPhone. I only use click for odd songs so don't make setlists or anything, I just make a note on my written chart and adjust if needed.

    Mine have 3 drivers (armatures) and they've worked very well for me for more than years now. I had some occasional trouble with them with my old, outdated recording set-up. But now that my recording gear is more current, the IEMs work flawlessly. I think it had to do with Ohm compatability.

    I just prepare mp3s as if they're normal songs, like 5 minutes of PLIP-PLOP-PLOP-PLOP, arrange them into playlists, and then just play them on the phone as if I'm listening to actual music.

    I'm making the click mp3s with Reaper, but I guess any DAW could do it.
