Default Re: Pros & Cons to In Ear Monitors?

Won't leave any time for the in ear tweaks?

I sure do want to try them though.
I use 2 different systems for that. When we play out regular gigs with our PA, I use a wireless IEM system that's permanently wired into our rack with the mixer. When we play one-off gigs with other acts, I use a RockBox from RockOn Audio (the older one, I'm thinking about upgrading to the Tasty Blender). The RockBox lets you take either a line-in input or a speaker-level input, so if the sound guy doesn't have time to set up a separate Aux send for you, you just plug a short speaker cable into the existing monitor and you've got your in-ears.
