Ultimate Ears Pro UE-11 In-Ear Monitors  A tight, punchy bass tone with crystal-clear middle and high frequencies.

I was playing in a band using a lot…

And while there are many generic models to choose from that feature general-purpose earpieces, to get the most out of the in-ear monitoring experience, it’s wise to go with a set of custom-fit in-ears…

From  an article on DJ  Tech Zone on hearing protection. “A while ago I posted my review of the UE 11 Pro custom in-ear monitors, and to me these are probably the best option to protect your ears.” Why do I say custom in-ears are the best? Comfort: since they are custom-made for your ears, they should fit perfectly and as such wont strain your ears upon prolonged usage. Volume levels: mixing through custom in-ears…

They are grounded even though they have worked with some of todays biggest stars.  We got them…
