    Hi all,
    Recently I've noticed a distortion in my right In Ear Monitor, which are Shure E-3's that I've
    used for many years. They've sounded very good the whole time, until now. I recently had
    my hearing tested, and my Ear Specialist said my hearing is "on the high side of normal,"
    which was good news after playing electric guitar with loud tube amps since 1970.

    Has anyone had an I.E.M. go bad?

    I had a custom set of (high end) IEMs go bad. But it was the wire on one side that started cutting out intermittently. I suppose IEM drivers can fail just like any other driver. They’re just really small.

    How diligent are you about removing ear wax from them?
