Hi again...I'm getting mixed reports on what is the 'best' option for playing drums live to sequencers over a band/on stage volume. Some say the custom moulds provide the best isolation but can leave you with a detached feeling from your instrument, others say that better isolation can be achieved from generic fit phones...
Just wondered what people's thoughts were on this (especially drummers) as obviously generics cost a lot less that custom moulds.
What is important to me is 1/ looking after my hearing i.e. being able to hear the sequencers clicks etc without being deafened, 2/ a good quality sound - thinking at least triple drivers
The ideal solution is to run a mix of the drums and band back through a mixer to my ears, but on some gigs this may not be possible so too much unadjustable isolation could be a problem?
I was looking at Shure 535s or similar, someone has recommended GR07s (do these compare with 535s?)
Let me know your thoughts on this as the whole decision making process seems confusing lol
