In ear monitors and in ear monitor systems are designed to make the lives of musicians a whole lot easier. The humble in ear monitor system may not be your first purchase when you start gigging or performing, but trust us when we say they'll bring a whole new level of professionalism and comfort to your performance.
In ear monitor systems are the best way for performers to hear themselves and their band, accompanying musicians and fellow performers clearly. They are also incredibly useful for theatre artists who need to be able to hear their cast members clearly onstage as well as any musical cues.
Fortunately, in ear monitor systems are widely available and accessible, suiting a wide range of applications and budgets. They are no longer reserved for professional musicians!
In fact, we stock a huge range of budget-friendly in-ear monitor systems all the way to professional level setups from the likes of Shure, LD Systems, Sennheiser and more. If you're a beginner looking to get started with a set of in-ear monitors, a drummer looking for wireless in-ear monitor system or a theatre producer in need of a full wireless in ear monitor system, we've got you covered.
There are many key benefits to using in-ear monitors on stage, and in a rehearsal situation.
The main key benefit with in ear monitors comes down to the fact you can have a direct mix of your performance fed directly to your ears, without the need for a monitor speaker.
You also control the overall level of the mix directly via a belt pack, that sits on your belt, or guitar strap. If you're using a wireless microphone as well as in ear monitors, you can also move anywhere on stage and still hear everything you need to thanks to the fact the mix is being fed directly to your in-ears.
Thanks to the isolation that in ear monitors offer, in-ear monitor systems also help prevent noise-induced hearing loss, as you have complete control over the volume being fed to your ears. The isolation helps reduce unwanted background noise, so you can hear clearly, allowing you to turn the volume down to a safer level. This is far better for your ears than a loud stage.
There are many benefits to in-ear monitors for drummers as you can hear each and every instrument, regardless of how loud you play.
There are also many benefits to in-ear monitors for singers as you can hear your voice and the music correctly, rather than relying on a PA system or the ability of the sound engineer.
There are many in-ear monitor system options out there, but there are a few industry standard options that we would recommend, here at PMT. The Range of Shure in ear monitors are easily regarded as the best in the world, offering professional-level sound quality at all stages. We recommend the likes of the Shure PSM300 Wireless Personal Monitor System with SE215 Earphones which offer incredible isolation and reliable connection when you need it most.
If you're a beginner, or on a strict budget, the LD Systems MEI 100 G2 Wireless In-Ear Monitoring System ISM UK Version is also a very cheap alternative that doesn't suck, and highly recommended for those who gig infrequently or need something inexpensive for rehearsal.
