Choosing the Right IEM For Stage and Studio With Mike Dias, Matt Engstrom, Eric Hruza and Mark Frink
In this discussion Mark Frink, Matt Engstrom, Eric Hruza and Mike Dias explain the different types of in-ear monitors available to performers and their engineers, universal fit vs. custom fit, balanced armatures, dynamic drivers and now hybrid designs that blend the best of both. We all know about the benefits of using custom in-ear monitors for live sound reinforcement but how many of us trust and rely on in-ear monitors for our studio work? As a trusted reference point, in-ears should be used for all remote studio work and for all high-resolution audio sessions. As an added benefit, with the sheer amount of portable listening happening on phones and MP3 players, in-ears should be considered your secret weapon for checking how the mix sounds in headphones. Join Mark Frink and his guest panel of engineers and in-ear manufacturers to learn how in-ear monitors have become essential tools both on and off the stage.
