Best In Ear Monitors

So, what are the best in ear monitors?

Unlike off-the-shelf universal earphones / in ear monitors, the question really isnít that clear cut - There isnít a 1 size fits all answer basically!

Everyone will have different requirements, different needs, budgets will vary of course also, you may just be an audiophile looking for a great sound, a musician that needs to hear the mix perfectly and nicely balanced or a DJ that wants ear protection but with extra low end rumble...In other words, you need to tailor what you require to the right in ear monitors

What we can say is that we know where the best place in the UK is to buy the Best In Ear Montiors, with us, The Headphone Company!

We currently range custom in ear monitors by...JH Audio, ACS, Alien Ears, Westone, Minerva, ProGuard, Sleek Audio, Puretone, Unique Melody, Rooth and 1964 Ears - Sensaphonics and Starkey should be with us shortly!

Already have some top-end universal in ear monitors / earphones? We are also able to take your working universals and turn them into a custom in ear monitor by reshelling them using your drivers and a new crossover, on some models we can even add in new drivers for an improved sound and performance

Ear Impressions: How much do they Cost?

Share    
So you want custom IEMs, in ear monitors or ear plugs, you need ear impressions, but how much do they cost?

Prices can vary but you do have a choice, there are a range of national chains that will be able to help but also local independents that you may not even realise are there

Typically you would expect to pay about £35 for a pair of ear impressions, some centres may charge up to £50, this often happens if they are a busy centre, so if their time is limited, they will charge a premium - Always check prices before before you book an appointment but never pay more than £50 for a pair of ear impressions where you will be attending an appointment at their premises. If you are looking for a mobile ear impression appointment then you would expect to pay slightly more than £35

At The Headphone Company we have an in-house qualified and insured ear impression taker, we offer appointments at our premises in Hertfordshire, but we also offer a mobile service that covers London, Hertfordshire, Essex & some areas of Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Middlesex. Our prices range from £35 and we are able to visit you any day of the week including evenings and weekends

During your appointment we can also give advice on any of our custom ear protection products or any of our custom in-ear monitors if required, a service that is ideal for music schools & colleges, studios, musicians, bands and music shops, etc

Official Custom Earphone Sleeves for Westone Earphones (UM56)

Share    
Weíve decided to add the Westone UM56 custom earpieces to our site, theyíve been online for about a month now, suitable for all Westone Earphones and as an official Westone product the fit should be perfect!



While universal-fit eartips can provide a good fit for just about anyone, you can improve the comfort and fit of universal monitors with a pair of Westone UM56 custom earpieces. The Westone UM56 is comparable in size to the tips provided with most universal-fit musiciansí monitors, but ensure the comfort and seal that only a custom-fi t product can provide

You colour choices are: clear, beige, light brown, medium brown, dark brown, neon green, neon orange, neon yellow or neon pink, shown below:

Custom Earphones

Share    
If you are serious about your music as a consumer or are a performing musician that requires the best fit, sound, isolation and comfort then a custom monitor is a must!

Custom Fit
All custom earphones will require a set of ear impressions, the impressions of your ears are then used to make the custom earphones ensuring that they fit perfectly with every shape and contour of your ears - This makes them very easy to use, placing them in the ear and removing them becomes a no-fuss process vs any standard in-ear monitor / earphone. In addition to this the fitting becomes extremely secure with very little chance of them falling out during a performance for example



Sound
As custom earphones are hand built using only the finest parts and materials the sound attained is unrivalled vs any off the shelf earphone, also with no foam tip or sleeve to dampen or alter the sound signature you can be assured that the quality that hits your ear is unaltered and as close to true as possible. You also have a choice of drivers to match not only your budget but also the sound that you require, custom earphones are available in: single, dual, triple and five driver models

Isolation
Offering the best seal possible, ultimately the isolation will hit perfection and certainly the highest you will find with any earphone / monitor available. Often classed as "perfect fit" or "leaktight seals" you will find that noise level reduction would be in the region of 25 dB, eg: same as standing beside a petrol lawnmower (usually 100 dB) but only hearing around 70 dB which is equivalent to an electric hoover




Comfort
Again, owing to the custom nature and the material used (silicone) comfort cannot be rivalled by any other product, not only are the custom earphones matched to your ear shape but they will also soften with your ears heat, leading to enhanced comfort and zero ear fatigue meaning that hours of use is achievable without them causing ear ache which is often found with off the shelf earphones after a few hours of constant use, they are therefore great for travelling, performing or TV / Studio work




At present we can offer through our site:
ACS Customs: ACS T1, ACS T2 & ACS T3
JH Audio: Coming Soon (Hopefully)
Puretone: Puretone Classic & Flex
Sleek Audio: CT6 & CT7
Westone: Elite ES1, ES2, ES3, ES3x, ES5 + AC1 & AC2

If you would like to enter the world of custom earphones but donít quite have the budget you may also want to take a look at our custom earphone sleeve service, we are able to make custom sleeves for all Shure Earphones, Etymotic and also the Sennheiser IE range - For just £90 which includes having your impressions taken we can give you all the benefits of custom fit for an off the shelf earphone!
