  • Good in-ear headphones for Vdrums without distortion?

    Hi guys,
    I am getting ready for a gig and cannot find proper in-ears for monitoring my drums during the gig. I am currently using high-impedance Sannheiser head-phones (over the ears), as this way I get the reachest sound without distortion. But they are bulky and fit better for rehearsal than for the gig.
    Any good advice? Are there any good in-ears which will give me good reach sound?
    I use only the headphone output on my TD-20X

    Thanks! Hope to find a solution soonest

      Understand that good gear costs $. Anything up to $250? Does not have to be high end, but good enough to have undistorted and loud sound

        In this budget range, I'd look at the UM Pro series.

        https://www.westone.com/store/music/...um-pro-series/

        I went with the 20's, myself. I wanted less mid range. If you write them, and explain what you desire in sound, they'll direct you to what is best for you. Be sure to them your application.

        I tried the higher end Shures. I wasn't impressed enough for the money Shure asks. The Westones' quality and sound are worth what you pay.

          You'll be surprised - even 25/$35 MEE M6 Pros work fine. For cans I highly recommend Sennheiser HD205 which stay on your head and are bulky,

              I've been happy with the M6's as well. For $50 US, they sound great. Nothing compared to the higher end stuff though.

                Another thing that works great is making your own molds for 10 bucks! https://www.amazon.com/Radians-CEP00...olded+earplugs there are several videos online that show you how to do it, works great!

                  This will be my next pair everyone seems really happy with these and they were cheaper than my Shure. These are the newer ones but the older ones have gotten great reviews.

                    I second this. I spent a bit more and had to borrow a vacuum pump from my kids school to degas the 2 pack silicone I used but I turned a $20 pair of soundmagic ba iems into fantastically isolating units.

                    The isolation is such a critical element of sound quality that it is worth making the effort to get right.

                    I use spiral reference monitors for gigs and they are awesome but the homemade units are scarily close in sound quality.

                      I have a pair of these and they are good but quite bulky and I struggle to get a good and consistent isolation when I'm moving around with them in.

                        Dear Vdrummers,

                        I have tried them all, the headphones! All the headphones sucks under the 300 euro! The Sennheiser HD 650 was reasonable... The Roland Vdrum series sucks!
                        Many IEM'S couldn't satisfied me! In the middle and high ok but no layer...

                        A friend pointed me at the 1 More tripple drive inear, WOW! These inears pleased me and gave me the sound I was looking for! Tight and deep in the low areas, nice warm mids and a very clear high, without any distortion! Even on high vorlume. And the price? you only can laugh!
                        I am a very satisfied user and not a seller or anything like that...

                        Read some reviews.

                        I hope that with my story I can give people so much more fun with a much nicer sound!

                        Le me know i've you bought them.

                        Greetz,

                        Wimlex

                            +1 on the Westones. I got the AM Pro 30, but the 20's are a bit more affordable. The 10's are well within your price range with change to spare.

                              I used to do band stuff with my on-the-go Degauss Labs Noir in-ears, but I've lately become a much bigger fan of my new setup: a pair of Shure SE215, along with custom-made silicone tips from Custom Art Poland (thecustomart.com). The tips are ~40 a pair, you just have to send in your impressions from the audiologist. These guys do a good job (and relatively cheap). I was a bit worried first because one of my ear canals is quite narrow, and stock tips always fall out or create irritating phasing noise with cymbals when I move my jaw, but the custom tips work perfectly.
                              Only 'drawback' is that this combi blocks almost everything from the outside world, and I needed to put an ambient mic next to my kit so that I can participate in band talk again...
