  I’ve had the opportunity over the years to review in-ear monitors, or IEMs, more than once — and I’m definitely a fan. Having learned to DJ first for radio mixshows, using big can-style headphones was never part of my style, even after I started doing club work, nor today when I handle primarily mobile gigs. I prefer the passive noise reduction and audio quality of properly fitted (or custom-molded) IEMs.



I’m a long-time fan of in-ear monitors, or IEMs. I like the way they sound, and I like the passive noise reduction and the potential hearing-safety benefits. But some of the challenges of using them in a mobile DJ environment can include handling requests from guests, taking direction from a wedding planner, and other situations where you need to speak with someone during your set. Or for the club jock, hear the response from your crowd — IEMs don’t just sweep away like a pair of conventional, over-the-ear, can-style headphones. Until now.
