At the heart of any in-ear monitor, it’s the smallest elements that make the biggest difference, especially in the small, confined space of the ear.
There are two common formats on the market. One is borrowed from the hearing aid industry, called the balanced armature driver approach. This technology consists of an electro-magnetic motor system packed with a multitude of components and drivers. Here, a combination of several balanced armature drivers, each only able to cover a specific frequency range, work together to cover the full hearing spectrum.
The interaction of the motor system, numerous drivers, crossover points and other passive components do not always work in a cohesive way. This results in phase issues and distortions at high volumes which impairs the overall listening experience.
Enhance the way you hear with Sennheiser in-ear monitoring solutions on stage or during rehearsal.
The stage and rehearsal space can be a volatile place. Hearing yourself through floor monitors, side fills, or even the PA can be a struggle. As a performer, all this takes you away from a good rehearsal or a great show, from just hearing yourself and how you blend with the other musicians. Yet in-ear monitoring eliminates all these drawbacks, greatly improving the listening environment and providing significant performance benefits. Once you have experienced it, you will likely never go back.

In-ear monitors have become a standard addition to every musician or sound engineer serious about their job, no matter whether you’re headlining the main stage or starting off your path. The essentially small monitors, got into your ear, blocking outside noise and give you the direct mix while on stage, at rehearsal or in the studio. Decisions on universal vs. custom fit, color or cable routing are typically based on individual preferences. More difficult is the choice of the audio technology. When it comes to your audio experience, don’t settle for any trade-offs.
