rockinredeye Posted November 10, 2013 Share Posted November 10, 2013 My band of the last 18 years finally went with IEMs, Behringer system where we can set volume on all 16 channels to control our own mix. We played a state fair recently where we HAD to use their stage floor monitors and the volume was very loud. FOH for other bands sounded wonderful, but on stage it was so loud I tried using ear plugs for the first couple of tunes. That was too muted; I couldn't hear enough high frequencies to suit me so I took them out. From then on, nobody sounded in tune or in the right key, including me on keyboard. Has anyone experienced this? When I say out of tune, I could hear the guitar sound, but couldn't tell what notes he was playing. Every bass note was just a boom. I have read, maybe on this forum, that high volumes can distort in the ear canal before sound even reaches the eardrum. I am asking if anyone knows of an earplug that can help with this. The expanding foam type didn't work for me. Kurzweil PC3-76 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
