At church we recently went to an in ear monitor system. I can't wear them. I've tried every shaped bud in every size with every material for the in ears and cannot get a good seal going. As long as I continually press with the lightest of pressure on the in ears, all sounds great. Of course that makes playing bass a bit difficult, so as soon as I release the pressure it sounds like crap...especially the bass. Sounds like I'm playing thru a 15 watt open back combo that's cranked. Everybody else seems to have no problem with the in ears fitting good except me. Our drummer happened to have his Bose AE2 headphones that he use to wear and offered to let me use them for todays service. OMG....night and day differance!! Everything sounded fabulous!! These headphones were a nice size too. Nothing to big or clunky and very light. Offhand I'm going to get a pair next weekend to use at church. In the meantime I'm wondering if anybody else uses headphones instead of in ears and what are you using.
