Hi guys

I have a few pairs of KZ in ear monitors
I’m very pleased with them :)
But I’m always on the look out for better
I’m a professional keyboard player in a Rock Tribute Band, while onstage I have a few things going through my in ears, guitar, bass, drums, my keys and vocals…

what in ear headphones would you recommend that are better than any of my KZ’s?

I have these

KZ AST 24

KZ AS 16

KZ ZS10

KZ ZSX

Sony MDR-V6 and MDR-7506 headphones are consider good bang for the buck studio monitors.
Kind of a boring sound, which I guess is what is need in a monitor headphone.

Do you have a budget in mind? And are you able to adjust the different instrument volumes on the fly?

I have been using IEMs for close to 20 years for stage monitoring (I play the keyboard too). A lot of my friends use the KZ ZS10 Pro for monitoring but I find it a bit harsh in the treble.

Personally I am using the Audiosense T800, 8 BA set. Good fit and passive isolation of 30 dB is excellent which really protects the hearing and allows one to use the lowest volume. It has great technical performance too.
