iSK SEM6 In-Ear Monitoring Headphones - RED
Great sound, but I am not a Sound EngineerBy: Ben on 18 August 2016First up, I am not a Sound Engineer. I have worked with Professional Sound Engineers and would happily do cable runs, speaker stacks and other 'low-end' jobs for them, but that wizard stuff they do on the desks during live gigs? Nope. (I'm running the sound desk because there isn't anyone else to do it around here and I'm learning as I go) Desk: X32 Mics: Shure SM58s, SM57s and some Radial PRO DIs Gig: Live rock band for local artists So, these earplugs do two things for me, they block the external sound out pretty well and provide a pretty good range of signal reproduction. The bass guitar can be heard clearly and it sounds great, kick drum is the same and funnily seems to match the kick in the chest you get with a kick in the ears (physically). Lead guitar and vocals sound great too. What they don't do is block out all the sound. Okay, so the gigs are usually pretty freaking loud and for all intents and purposes, if you can feel the kick in your chest at the back of the hall, it's probably impossible to get a Cone Of Silence effect from any cans, but simply pushing the buds in your ears downwards slightly seems to almost do the trick. Putting them in your ears is a little bit of a ritual, but having used pro-earplugs for a long time, it's basically the same. Not as quick as over-ear headphones though. I will continue to use these because the sound seems to be great, the cable is bloody long and bright red, so it's easy to figure out what I have wrapped around it when tangled. There are a couple of different sized ear-buds in the box when you get them, they seem super cheap looking, but after trying them all out for fit I found the ones that suited me and then I didn't care what they looked like in a plastic bag. For the price, they suit me perfectly. Would purchase again.
