How do you wear yours?

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
I've got a couple of IEM's (like you do) however with the over the ear wires, I always wear place the cable under my chin and hook the wires over my ears. When i saw the UE video (i think it was) where the cable goes behind the neck, and the cable over the ears, i thought: does anyone else wear their cables under their chin or is it just me? I don;t want to be alone on this

i have tried to wear behind my back, but not in normal walk-about times. when im bicycling or other active stuff, i tuck the cable behind me through my shirt and down my back, but usually, it is in front below my chin. im sure that is the norm.

whenever i see someone on the train with a shure or ue, they always have the cable in front of them!

Behind the back is for stage work mostly, where the receiver is placed on a belt on your back.

I have mine over my ears and under my chin. Easier to work with.

My IEMs aren't over the ear style, but I do the same thing for active use with them because of microphonics. I've tried using them behind the neck, but it just doesn't feel right to me.

I've never seen anyone with them behind the back out in real life...

I wear my SE530's over the ear, but it can be a bit of a PIA... especially if I have to take them on and off regularly. I had to get the little silicone ear guides from Audeo because I was having so much trouble with the wire flopping off the top of my ear. Of course the ear guides are getting loose and I have to push the wire back in at the curved part every time I put them on now. I guess I need to get the PTH attachment so I never have to take them off.

I wear my 3's and 4's down typically... main because the wire won't stay over the top of my ear consistently.

I find that running them down the back is too much of a pain to bother with normally. Of course I can't do that when I'm using the microphone.

I wear: under the chin.

But I rarely see any head-fier's during commute. Its lonely

I wear mine over the ears and under my chin, except when I'm on the treadmill. I find the cable less distracting when I wear it down my back in that case.

yep. when i'm using my IEMs for onstage monitoring and for running, i run the cable down the back. when i'm walking about, it depends, sometimes down the back if i can be arsed, but usually down the front is my choice.

Over the ear, down the front. Can't be bothered to run it down the back.

I have never seen anyone tuck the cable down the back except for performers.

Over the ear, down the front as well, the Shure SE530's bigass Y-split is just uncomfortable to wear down my back.
