In-Ear Monitor Maintenance 101

Your in-ear monitors will love you as long as you love them. Over time, if not properly cared for, your in-ears will start to feel the effects of sweat, wax, and dead skin cells. While a professional cleaning from time to time might be necessary, there are some things you can do to make sure they stay clean and sound great.

A light cleaning after each use will help your in-ear monitors sound their best. If you start to notice they are not balanced from left to right, or certain frequencies have disappeared, it is highly likely that sweat and wax are choking out the sound. Following the tips in this video will help ensure your in-ears serve you for a long time.
