Re: on-stage personal monitoring...loop-related, i assure you

Has anyone tried or used these headphones?


I'm also thinking of using headphones for monitors when I play live, as 
it seems totally hit or miss as to whether or now you're going to get 
any monitors at all at some venues.  After specifically asking a stage 
manager at a huge show, "Will there be monitors for the bands?" and was 
told yes, there was a "killer system." I found out that the DJ oriented 
show had *no* monitor system at all and it was very hard to hear
