I am a bass player, rapper, and FOH engineer working on a college student budget, and I am interested into upgrading IEMs. I currently own a Shure's SE-215s, and I would like to improve from there. As a bass player and rapper I would like to get ears with a slight bias on low end, without straying too far from reference levels to assist my work as a FOH engineer.
If possible, I would like to stay around/below $400. If I can get a quality custom molded ear for around that price, I may prefer that option, but universals would also be acceptable.
I would also be open to looking into purchasing used gear if that would be recommended. How difficult/expensive would it be to have used customs remolded?
Thanks again for your help; I have lurked this forum for a few weeks now, and thought it would be appropriate for finally join!
