Default Re: Pros & Cons to In Ear Monitors?

Lest anyone think I am strictly pro-headphones, there is a situation where they won't be as effective as in-ears.

If you've got a lot of hair and the phones don't sit fairly close against your head, you will will get a lot of outside noise, lose fidelity, and risk having the phones fall off if you move your head too sharply. In that case, in-ears would be preferrable.

I keep my hair on the short side anyway, but I keep it even shorter on the road so I can maximize the benefits of phones (and also minimize 'bunk hair'.)
