In-ear monitors help to eliminate feedback, lower onstage noise levels and reduce vocal fatigue. They not only allow you to hear with clarity and crispness, when used properly they help protect your priceless hearing.
Every day, we experience sound in our environment, such as the sounds from television and radio, household appliances, and traffic. Normally, we hear these sounds at safe levels that do not affect our hearing. However, when we are exposed to harmful noise—sounds that are too loud or loud sounds that last a long time—sensitive structures in our inner ear can be damaged, causing noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL).
