I just used IEMs for the first time. Boy, did I hate them. Couldn't hear anyone talk unless they were shouting at me, the cables were annoying, and I ended up fiddling with my mix too much. The venue I was playing was a biggish church with the modern "drummer in a cage" and no amps or anything on stage. It felt really odd. I guess I feel old as IEMs seem to be the "wave of the future" but so far bands I've been in haven't used them. Yay! Do you just get used to them, or do some of you just keep on hatin?
