the issue with IEMs

Both Ears. Using just a single earphone leads to higher monitoring volumes, as performers raise its volume to match the ambient stage sound in the other ear, removing any hearing conservation benefits.

Also, it could lead to an imbalance in levels and hearing loss/deafness on one side.

Something i’ve know for a long while now, but still see happening with every other performer.
