Re: Pros & Cons to In Ear Monitors?
I've been using IEM for the past 10 years and won't play a gig without them.
Initial cost may be a factor (my kit was about $700) but considering that I will have my hearing as an old man and I've made 20 times that cost in bar gigs, it's a no-brainer.
Invest in yourself and you won't regret it. Buy the best you can afford and don't bat an eye.
The best part is rolling into a gig and having your own monitor in a small pouch. No heavy wedges to tote around.
