Re: Which is better: headphones or monitor?
I use both as well. Switching back and forth. Qsc k10 for monitor. It is pricey, but gets louder than I'll ever need it, and stays crystal clear in all frequencies. I use se215's as well. I really like them. I'm sure there are better in ears, but these sound really good. And are cheap compared to the alternatives.
I use the monitor more for stage volume so the rest of the bad can hear my electronics. For using loops and backtracks, in ears are a must
