    Hi,

    Used the ME1 for the first time at a gig last night.

    I used some AKG in-ears which were ok, but had too much band bleed-through, so I had to have the mix level higher than I wanted so I could hear it over the bleed through.

    Can anyone suggest some in-ear monitors that give decent suppression of external sound?

    Cheers
    Martin

    Hi, if you go the custom route it may help, see for example http://www.acscustom.com/uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=139&Itemid=44

    I have the older ER9/15/25 ones which can take IEM drivers instead of the filters and if I remember, using them as IEM offers 12dB of external suppression.

    Hope this helps!

    Alan.

    along the same lines…

    we use the share 215s at church, but the cable is too short to use on its own.
    does anyone know of a decent extension cable. I know this sounds like a simple enough thing to find, but we can’t find anything that hits everything we want.

    the shures have a typical 3.5mm male connection. we would like to extend he length with a coiled extension with as few adapters as possible, and most importantly have a right angle coming off the back of the ME-1s which are mounted to music stands.

    What I’d really like to know is what do you use to play live with you ME-1?
