Default In-Ears

I have 100 bucks to spend on In-Ear monitors for my drumming gigs. What are the best ones for that price range?

Shure E2C. I use them as my main in-ear monitors, and they're excellent for the price. They also come with heaps of different plug types and sizes, so you're sure to find one that suits you.

They're 69 bucks on Amazon.com right now, so you'll have some cash left over as well :-)

The Shures? They're exactly like any other earbud headphone, except designed for live situtations (better soundproofing, designed to stay in even if the person wearing them is moving his head around a lot, etc).

If you can hold off and save up just a little more, your best bet would be going with a pair of Ultimate Ears. You can get Ultimate Ear 700's for $199, the difference is quite substantial. I currently use UE 7 Pro's custom in ear's but I started with the Triple Fi's which are $399. They aren't cheap, but it is much worth the money. I would have thought the Shure's would be good because of the Shure name, but they weren't as good as the Ultimate Ears.

I plug mine into a little mixer that I keep to my left, so that I can control my own mix of whatever I choose to put in there. Here's my little rig that holds all my electronics (sampler, metronome, mixer and in-ear monitors):



If I want full in-ear monitoring on stage, I can ask the sound guy to give me a monitor mix in a standard cable that I can plug right into my mixer, and it will work nicely. I'm not doing that yet though, since I don't have a limiter in my setup. That means that if there are sudden spikes in volume in the monitor mix (like a feedback situation), it can seriously mess up my hearing. At the moment I'm using the in-ears purely for the metronome and the sampler, and they also double as hearing protection.

I use a Shure P2RE2-H2 PSM 200 in ear monitor system. I have my own mix going through my system so I hear only what I want, at the levels I want, it's great!!
