Re: I'm a touring drum tech and the time has come for IEMs.
I have the Shure se215's and really like them. Im sure the 315's and 515's are better but I can't imagine how much better they are. I've never tried the Westones, but my guitarist lent me his Bose IEM's and they're not even in the same league, they're more like expensive phones for an mp3 player. The Shures blew them away.
by the way, who do you tour with if you don't mind me asking.
