How Do In-Ear Monitors Work?

Reported by bigear | January 12th, 2021 @ 04:34 PM

In a stage setting, firstly, a mixer sends a feed to a wireless receiver. The receiver usually sits on a belt and connects to your in-ear monitors so that you can hear the sound.

A monitor engineer in big productions does the monitor mix. However, on live shows, the live sound engineer may do this instead.

By having custom in-ear monitors being mixed separately, each member of a band can hear what they want to. This aids their performance. Wireless systems for in-ear monitors also allow more freedom around the stage.

In ear monitors also keep the stage sound levels down. This means that you no longer need to use big, bulky stage monitors. This is good for your hearing.

The echo can be a problem with in-ear monitor headphones and live performances. Echo cancellation is the answer. It works by monitoring the sound being played into the microphones and then comparing it to the sound originating from the far end. It can cancel out the sound it finds in both. This sound can only be coming from the far end. This sort of technology works on your smartphones, too.
