    1) Both Ears Or None. Using only one ear encourages much higher sound levels. Good custom molds provide 20 to 25 dB of isolation, allowing lower monitoring levels for artists, and reduced stage noise to compete with front of house. Mixed mode monitoring combining wedges and personal monitors ultimately results in higher overall SPL. 2) Hard-Wired Equals Hi-Def. Wired personal monitors will always sound better than wireless. In addition to loss of stereo separation and frequency response, multiplexed stereo wireless… View this story

    Ten important things to be aware of in the quest for optimum results with in-ear monitoring: Coordination. TV broadcasts are the dominant feature of the local RF spectrum. Online resources like the Sennheiser Frequency Finder, which uses a ZIP code, and the FCC’s database to provide a list of local TV broadcast stations and their signal strength, helps users tune wireless systems to interference-free frequencies, removing much of the guesswork. Antennas. Most wireless in-ear monitoring transmitters come with a simple… View this story

    Many worship venues have made the transition from “wedges” to “ears” for stage monitoring purposes, and often find that this can be a surprisingly tricky process. Essentially, wedges are loudspeakers that are laid sideways and angled up at the performers. The sound content or “mix” in each monitor, or group of monitors, is customized for the performers’ needs and each often have a much different balance than the house sound mix. In-ear monitor systems have become popular in recent years.… View this story

    Drummer Queen Cora Dunham, currently on tour with Beyoncé, is utilizing a Sensaphonics 3D active ambient IEM system. “I started using the Sensaphonics 3D in 2007 when I was with Prince,” Dunham notes, “and I’ve been using them ever since. It’s an amazing system, so versatile and comfortable – much better than regular in-ears.” The 3D IEM system uses embedded microphones to capture the on-stage sound surrounding the performers, allowing them to hear everything around them while their ears remain… View this story

    Over his 20 years of mixing the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Dave Rat has had to deal with a wide range of audio issues. During the current multi-year tour in support of the album I’m with You, the band encountered severe interference issues with its IEM system, which Rat addressed with a switch to the Shure PSM 1000 system and its diversity reception design. “The troubles we were having with our existing in-ear systems were primarily due to the LED… View this story
