Custom Ear Buds & Monitors for Musicians

The best earbuds for musicians certainly aren’t the ones that you have to crank up the volume on just to hear yourself over the din onstage or hear what you need to in the studio. In fact, those in-ear monitors are probably harming your hearing more than you realize—even though part of their job is to prevent that from happening. Luckily for Western Montana musicians, Vibrant Hearing offers custom ear buds and in-ear monitors that can block out all the background noise and properly protect your hearing.Violinists performing at a concert

Why Use In-Ear Monitors?

In-ear monitors use transmitters to pick up a specific monitor mix and send it to their receivers, which then send the sounds to your earbuds. If you’re playing music live or mixing it in a studio and need to focus on individual parts—perhaps to get the perfect guitar tone or ensure you’re singing in the right key—your in-ear monitors may be your best friends.

Custom-Fitted In-Ear Buds Make All the Difference

If you find yourself constantly having to adjust the volume on your in-ear monitors, there’s a good chance they don’t fit properly. Custom ear buds that are molded to the exact shape of your ears will help by essentially creating a seal to block out background noise. Plus, they’re available in a variety of colors.

The custom-fitted in-ear monitors we offer are made from medical-grade silicone to provide you with long-lasting comfort perfectly suited for extended performances. They also provide excellent sound quality and monitoring, even at low volumes, thanks to top-of-the-line precision drivers, integrated crossovers, and other technological features.

Protect Your Hearing While Wearing Custom Ear Buds

While there is reason to believe that ear buds and headphones have contributed to a rise in hearing loss—13% of Americans age 12 and up have reported hearing loss in both ears, according to the National Institute of Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD)—it is still possible to use your customized ear buds safely. The main factors to be mindful of are how loud your music is and for how long you’re listening to it at a high volume. You could try the “60-60 rule,” which is listening to music with your earbuds at 60% volume for 60 minutes at a time.
