FAQs on Custom Musician Ear Monitors:

What are ear monitors?

The most essential part of your in-ear system is the earpiece. This is, after all, what will deliver what you're hearing throughout the performance. Having something that fits well and stays in place is important. Musician earpieces are not to be confused with your everyday MP3 player earbuds. Your average everyday headphones are designed to allow external sounds like traffic noises, warning signals, and other sources into the ear. They do this by not having a tight seal on the ear channel which in turn allows audible external frequencies into the ear. This is not something you want with your IEM earpiece. Having an airtight fit is important. Keeping stage noise and other sounds out of your ears will make it easier for you to hear(opens in a new tab) what you really want to hear on stage without damaging your hearing.

What types of ear monitors exist?

There are two different types: un-molded or molded earpieces.

  1. Un-molded ears are not as expensive and come with foam or rubber inserts so that the earpiece can have a snug, airtight seal.
  2. Molded IEMs are custom-fitted earpieces that are molded to the shape of your outer ear. Having this custom fit makes them a lot more comfortable to wear and gives you a better acoustic seal.
