Why do singers wear earpieces?


According to Sensaphonics, singers wear earpieces, or in-ear monitors, to control the sounds they hear during performances. The use of an in-ear monitor allows singers to hear vocals and lower ambient noises and helps control which instruments the singer hears at desirable volumes.

Use of in-ear monitors can help protect a singer's hearing. The monitors also help the singer block out ambient noise from the crowd so he can hear his vocal performance. Sensaphonics also notes that the use of monitors can prevent vocal strain due to yelling or singing too loudly and eliminate feedback. About.com states that in-ear monitors fit into the ear canal and seal around the ear to reduce ambient sound. The monitors can either be custom fitted to the singer's ear, or come in a universal size for all ears.
