Why have we been using floor monitors Mar 25, 2011
By Tod Gentille
While I think this little unit is expensive (mine was about $300 and didn't include the headphones - -1 star for price) it does work great. The singer already owned the transmitter unit so I only had to buy the receiver. This is saving my ears. I bought some Sennheiser CX200 Twist-To-Fit Earbuds that sound great to use with this. They are the in ear type that you put in very securely and they block outside noise. (One hint bring the headphone wire up over your ear from back to front and then put them in your ear, your lobe provides stress releif for the ear piece and they never come out). I'm a drummer in a 7 piece band and they knock my drums way down so that they are in the back of the mix (they are just picked up by other room mics not mic'd in the rehearsal space). I can now hear everything that everyone in the band is playing and I don't care how loud they make their amps (within reason). This is one of the best things I've ever purchased for playing in a band. I don't go home with volume induced headaches anymore. When everyone in the band gets one, the floor monitors (and attendant feedback problems) will no longer be needed and playing live should go just as smoothly as rehearsal.
One small problem with the unit is the lack of any good indicator for low battery problems. One time I couldn't get sound, checked the channel, checked the power light all good. The singer suggested I replace the battery and as soon as I did, problem solved. Keep a supply of 9Vs on hand for practice and the show.

Works great and great distance. I was out in the parking lot of my church and I was still receiving clear signal.
