The Use of Wireless In-ear Monitoring System

- Aug 17, 2018-

Monitoring is the ability to hear (monitor) your performance during a performance, so you know exactly what you and other musicians are doing on the stage.

The stage monitor originated in the 1960s, and the rock band found that if each player could hear each other's voice, the performance would be better. Later, people sent a specific mix to the floor-standing speakers on the stage (the “wedge floor monitor speakers”) to fulfill this desire. These wedge-shaped speakers have created the era of monitoring, but they are bulky, noisy, and the sound is limited to one place. Now, the in-ear monitoring system allows you to hear the sound you want to hear without affecting others. These systems are comfortable loudspeakers that replace the wedge floor monitors with "in-ear" headphones.

What can the in-ear monitoring system be used for? In general, all in-ear monitoring systems can be used in all situations where monitoring is required.

Stage scene: Bands that often perform in different locations can control personal mixes, which helps them a lot. In addition, because the wedge speakers and amplifiers are no longer needed, the amount of transportation is greatly reduced.

Rehearsal room: In-ear monitoring turns the worst room into a good rehearsal location. Not only can you have more practice opportunities, but you can also reduce vocal cord pressure and tinnitus.

Recording Studio: During recording, performers who wear in-ear monitors can control the volume, adjust the volume of the beat track, and enjoy the comfort of small headphones that are not available in bulky traditional headphones. The use of soundproof headphones also reduces ambient noise and microphone leakage when dubbing the original tape.

Classical musicians: Wedge monitors are prone to echoes, especially when picking up acoustic instruments. The in-ear monitor system provides independent monitoring for the performer, whether on stage or in the music pool, without disturbing the listener's music enjoyment.

Theater and stage performance: These performers enjoy a cleaner and cleaner stage without the wedge-shaped monitor speakers. In these cases, the biggest advantage of the in-ear monitoring system is that the actors and staff can listen to the director's instructions, but the audience knows nothing about it.

Broadcasting environment: In addition to the sound effects, the in-ear monitoring system helps journalists and broadcasters isolate external noise. In addition, event background reminders can be inserted via satellite connections and used as a wireless interruptible return (IFB) system for field workers and actors.
