There may be some situations where utilising wired IEMs (In Ear Monitor Systems) may be beneficial to you, firstly, we must talk about the general advantages of IEMs before understanding the benefits of wired IEMs. In Ear Monitors be it wired or wireless, can be a great way to reduce the on-stage noise caused by wedge monitors which can ruin the clarity of the overall mix, especially if you are part of a large act were numerous monitors on stage can be messy, and hard to hear alongside various other mixes, this is also advantageous for your health, as your hearing can become damaged over time if you are constantly performing with wedge monitors.
When looking for a solution which suits you with IEMs, you may decide that a wireless system just isn’t what suits you, you may be willing to sacrifice the mobility and freedom that a wireless system gives you for more reliable signal processing, and lower costs. As we compare wired IEMs to their wireless counterparts you can see that wired options are far more reliable as they don’t have the same problems of potential radio interference, and due to the fact that we are essentially cutting out the cost of transmitters needed to make wireless IEMs work. Bear in mind when purchasing a set of wired IEMs that you will be followed around stage or studio by a cable required to make them work, so these are more suited to those who tend to sit still during performances like drummers or keyboard players.
