You’ve spent hours and hours producing your audio to perfection or building a home sound system. Maybe you want to take your sounds to the stage and show off your music! Today, with the innovation of audio technology, IEMs are used to enhance your home audio system, and are also commonly used among live performances, including your favourite artists. Getting ready for your gig? Keep on reading to learn more about why you need in-ear monitors.
What Are In-Ear Monitors?
At first glance, you might notice that in-ear monitors (IEMs) look a lot like earbuds, but they are more than that and offer many more benefits to live performers, audiophiles, and music lovers. If you’ve been to a live concert recently, you might notice that each of the performers are wearing a set of earbuds connected to a belt pack. The IEM differs from earbuds because IEMs are placed directly into your ear canal while earbuds sit on the outer ear. This design allows you to hear yourself throughout your setlist and protect your hearing by isolating ambient noise coming from the audience. The belt pack is a wireless transmitter that the IEM is connected to.
Similar to wireless Bluetooth headphones, it allows you to receive sound from the monitor mix throughout the performance without the need for wires. What makes IEMs superior to earbuds is its ability to produce clean sound quality, protect your hearing, isolating ambient noise, and allowing you to move around with less wires, these are just some of the benefits that IEMS can offer you!
Fit & Comfort
Whether you’re running around the stage to engage with your audience or are comfortably listening to your favourite music at home, IEMs are available in universal and custom options. Both are incredibly comfortable for long performances or listening sessions. Universal fit IEMs include ear tips that you can change to match your ear shape. On the other hand, Custom IEMs are built using an impression of your ear canal, then built using industry leading and state-of-the-art materials to provide you the best fit, sound, build quality, and comfort. If you’re planning on doing a lot of movement during your gig or going out for a walk, we highly suggest investing in custom fit in-ear monitors by 64 Audio or Empire Ears.
