  • IEMs... I think I found em...

    I recently bought a wireless IEM system...and needed some earbuds.

    Every recent review I've seen for these (not to mention the rather nice price) has pushed me in the direction of:

    The FreQ Music Maker.

    Sounds like an all around good gigging IEM...that will help you keep from going deaf!

    I'll be visiting the audiologist here shortly to get the custom mollds made...

    here's a good source of unbiased reviews for this sort of stuff, such as IEM's, headphones etc etc...

    I personally like CNET, I always check with them before buying electronics.

      I like CNET too...but I haven't used them a lot in recent memory.

      Do they do "audio type" reviews? I didn't even think to look at them for IEMs!

          The price seems good. Get a pair and let us know.

            I got some Westone CR-1's for my motorcycle and frequent airtravel use. They sound great.

            I tried them on the TD-20, but nothing beats the Bose headset for bottom end. Darn things will vibrate off my head if I am not careful

              I use E2's and they seem to work fine for me.

                Westone is an EXCELLENT choice... I'm going to try the FreQ's though..see how they go...

                If they sound good they're about half the cost of a comparable Westone model.

                    They've got a recommendation for just about every price point. I think Livewires and Ultimate Ears are mentioned as some of the best for under $150...but check it out yourself!

                        After some lurking I think my choice will be AKG K324 or Sennheiser CX 95.

                            Best Reliable IEM's

                            In my personal opinion, I think the Shure E4's powered with the P4HW Wired Bodypack is the perfect setup. I have been using this package for the past four years without faults and a Colosseum sound (comp/limit -15) gives plenty of headroom and zero distortion(no crappin' out kick) I totally enjoy the sound of my performance using Shure IEM's and carry a spare set of E3's also. I highly recommend Shure. There's no such thing as cutting costs when it comes to your monitors during live pperformances.

                              Shure E2s work well for me. I have trouble with IEMs just because I like to hear what the house is hearing. I feel disconnected from the energy when I use them. However, on bigger gigs or live recordings I'll use 'em.
