WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING CUSTOM IN-EAR MONITORS?
Are you ever onstage constantly thinking to yourself:
- “I wish I could hear the other musicians better?”
- “I wish i could hear my voice better”
- “That sound person is going to kill me if I say ‘Turn Me UP!” again.
Then you are one step closer to understanding the instant benefits of custom In-Ear Monitors.
Are you wishing you had more clarity and accuracy in your monitor mix? Are you constantly fighting room acoustics? At the end of a night singing does your voice feel strained and fatigued?
If you’re nodding your head like a bobble head right now or all fired up in agreement, custom in-ear monitors are the answer you’ve been seeking! When used correctly, in-ear monitoring can lead you to tighter performances at a lower stage volume. No doubt, that is a very good thing!
Repeat after me: BETTER SHOWS HAPPEN AT LOWER STAGE VOLUME LEVELS. When the room acoustics are controlled, the Front of House engineer can mix a better show. When you are not fighting to hear yourself, you’ll play and sing better. If you have better sound and are playing better your audience will be happier.
Lower stage volume = a better show for everyone!
Here are some other marvelous benefits for you and your FOH person.
Have AMAZING SOUND. ALL THE TIME
In-ear monitors are arrays of micro-speakers in your ears. Hear every note, nuance and subtlety of your music with clarity, fidelity and power. Move around stage with confidence. No more losing your mix when you go to the front of the stage for your big solo.
FOCUS ON THE MUSIC
By blocking ambient noise. If your band are on Ears you can control exactly what each band member hears in their personal mix. By blocking out ambient noise, each performer can focus on exactly what they need to hear, without distractions. Timing gets tighter, and a greater sense of artistic freedom and creativity begin to flow. Who doesn’t want that?
GET MORE STAGE SPACE AND VISUAL CONSISTENCY
Getting rid of floor monitors has a couple extra benefits. You not only gain more room on stage, you start to greatly reduce the challenges of different rooms and stages and you reduce visual clutter. Depending what kind of gig you are on (i.e. Corporate or Private party) a clean stage might just be thing that gets you re-booked, in addition to your fantastic music of course.
