Did you know that after 2 years of R&D ACS Custom have recently launched their Live! Series Monitors? With dual or triple driver options along with a new integrated crossover and a replaceable cable the T-Series just got better!

The revised and improved IEMs offer an enviable feature set brought about with meticulous attention to detail and design. Their driver configuration brings you a broad rich sound combined with the impeccable fit and comfort created by the discreet soft silicone mould resulting in an in-ear monitor that feels and sounds completely natural allowing you to control your sound and focus on your performance...



When ACS Custom created the new Live! Series they didnít just add another driver and call it ground breaking. They looked at the build, the wiring, the crossover, the components, the cable, the plug, the joints, the finish and even the case they send them in so that every aspect of their product is delivering what they want it to - Rest assured that you are buying Quality! Right now, buy from us and youíll not only receive FREE delivery but weíll also include a FREE spare cable worth £30

Series IEMs by Clicking Here & if you need custom monitors or any kind of ear protection and want some personal human-to human advice donít forget that we have a dedicated custom department, weíll have all the answers to your questions, we can be reached on 01920 876 958


Triple Driver Custom In-Ears (IEMs) with Detachable Cable on a Budget

Share    
Are you a musician, DJ, sound engineer or an audiophile - Need some Triple Driver Custom In-Ear Monitors / Earphones (IEMs) and a Detachable Cable but donít have a stash of cash laying about under your bed?

The ProGuard P2+1 Monitors offer a complete off the shelf, quick UK solution for an IEM with a dual low frequency driver and a third driver dedicated to the high frequencies - The result is stunning natural sound quality with detailed low frequencies and crisp highs. Priced at £379.99 including VAT, delivery and impressions you would have to agree that for custom IEMs thatís almost a steal, take a closer look at them on our site by Clicking Here



Alternatively if you are prepared to wait about 4 weeks then you could opt for a set of Alien Ears IEMs, which are made by musicians for musicians and because of that, you get more bang for your buck, pardon the expression but Alien Ears are from the USA so it felt appropriate

For a similar price to the P2+1 although you would need to provide us with your own ear impressions (easily made locally for about £30) you have a choice of the C3 (dual low / single high) or the full range CFR3 (single low / single mid / single high) - If you want more kick in the low end then the C3 is for you but if you prefer a more neutral balance then the CFR3 is the way to go - Find the C3 by Clicking Here and the CFR3 by Clicking Here



Why not take a look at our custom section online by Clicking Here if you want to look at other brands, or maybe you need less or even more drivers, maybe a fixed cable option is better for you or maybe you like the sound of the 8 driver JH16 Pro, we have them also...

Hearing Protection: What level of protection do I need?

Share    
Trying to work out what level of protection you need is not always as straight forward as you may hope but hopefully this guide will help. If you are unsure and need custom earplugs or any kind of ear protection and want some personal human-to-human advice donít forget that we have a dedicated custom department, weíll have all the answers to your questions, we can be reached on 01920 876 958

So, our previous posts should help a great deal but in essence the key factors for deciding upon the right ear protection are: volume level, time and distance

Volume will be the SPL (sound pressure level) measured in dB
Time, your exposure time to the volume mentioned above
Distance, the distance from the source will greatly affect the measured dB at your ear

In a semi-pro or pro environment you may have access to a sound level dosimeter which measures the dB for you or the venue may have taken care of these measurements, if you donít then you would either need to choose a product that the manufacturer recommends for your specific scenario or use the chart on our previous posts that give approximate SPL measurements for different environments then allowing for the safe dB level (83dB / 4 hours) and your actual exposure time, eg:

If you are a DJ in a nightclub that has an SPL in the booth of 105dB and you are doing a 2 hour set, you would need a minimum of 19dB reduction, this allows for 86dB / 2 hours which is equal to 83dB / 4 hours - Our dB vs time chart can be found by clicking here and other real life example by clicking here
