    hey guys... can anyone give any recommendations on in ear monitor models ??? the ones i have looked at are either WAY to expensive or way to cheap... im looking for something in the 300-400US range.. can this sort of money buy something decent?

    the in ear monitors will be used by the drummer of my band whilst listening to a click/instruction track during live performances...

    i just got livewires - custom fit for a good price - but it takes a while.

    You are talking ear buds themselves and not the whole system correct?

    My brother the audiologist gets me Westones at his cost. I got the top dogs there for like $80 or so. Lots of fluff in those prices.

    ive been looking into IEM's as well, and i think i am going with the shure 200 series (about $600 for the whole wireless system)

    You really can't go wrong with Shure - I've used many of their wireless systems over the past 10 years.

    They're one of the few companies out there that are taking the FCC and Congress to task over the 2009 UHF reorganization.
