Default Re: Pros & Cons to In Ear Monitors?

I've used in-ears and wedges both over the last ten years, and I have concluded that the best system for any musician is in-ear. Yes, it's a bit of work and investment, but everyone gets to keep their hearing onstage, the music is much tighter since nobody can ever say, "Well I can't hear Bob's bass in my wedge!", and even singing is easier. The best is when each person has his or her own output channel with the ability to mix in what's needed. The cost, the extra equipment, sure, that's a detractor for budding drummers and bands, but when you're able, plunk down the money. There's a reason so many pros use them.
