DJing wirelessly with Ultimate Ears | Ultimate Ears Stories

Recently I made a change to my DJ monitoring setup and discovered a whole new world of possibilities as well as a smoother workflow.

Building the Perfect Portable Studio with Ultimate Ears | Ultimate Ears Stories from the Field

In the previous installment, I talked about how the UERM and the AK120 became my new tools of choice for on-the-move mixing and referencing. These two products are a creative workhorse beyond my wildest expectations. I stumbled into using this setup while writing, and I might never go back. While mixing, I found that the [...]

Confidently take your studio on the road with Ultimate Ears. This is how I did it pt 1.

My Ultimate Ears are Buzzing Help

Why am I hearing a buzz or a hum in my in-ear monitor? How can I troubleshoot that?

Somethings off. I’m hearing a buzzing in both sides of my in-ear monitors. Any clue as to why? Something is off. But based on what you’re saying, I don’t suspect that it’s the monitors themselves. You see, since the sound is generated by balanced armatures rather than by dynamic coils like most typical headphones, there [...]
