I have been using a shure p4hw body pack for about 10 years now and its got every feature you would ever need plus can be configured to work no matter what system you may have to tie into. I also have a set of sure scl4 ear buds that are a bit pricy but I also have a cheap pair and they work just as good, just make sure you get a set that uses the foam ear pieces that you squish up and put in your ears and they swell up to not only block out external sound but also hold them in place really well.

The foam or plastic inserts usually fall out during the course of a live gig. Get something custom-molded, you won't regret it. Not only will they stay in place, they'll sound better and be much more comfortable. You can use them for casual listening, too. Think of them as the best pair of headphones you'll ever buy.

+1 on JH Audio. Small company still family owned and great products. Jerry Harvey invented the IEM, you can trust this company. I own the JH-16s - simply amazing!

I have been using the yellow foam inserts on the Shure ear buds for over 10 years now and have never ever had them fall out no matter how much I move around while playing. Plus if you really want custom molded, you can make your own with these.

I have these, and they work great for my purposes. Shure has 4 or more of these monitors that range from $100 to over $500.
