Best bang for the buck earphone on the market today.

A question that I hear a lot is “What are the best earphones? There is NO such animal. The best for you might not be the best for someone else.  Each player has a different set of needs and there is not one earphone that covers them all. Call me and we'll walk through your instrument, vocal and music style, what you want in your mix etc. Then we’ll come up with the best earphone for you.

Bass players obsess over their amps, endlessly debating the merits of brands, configurations, size, strings, pick-ups, active, non-active and nearly every other conceivable detail. Yet, when it comes to the average show of decent size, the audience hears a DI. I maintain that your in-ear monitor quality is a decisive factor in a your performance. The FCS11B will let you hear and feel the nuances of your bass to allow you to be more comfortable and creative.  Drawback though, you'll be able to hear it when you need new strings.

FCS11B bass series really deliveries. Great sound, no ear fatigue after 4-hour gig. Worth 5x the price!! Truly an upgrade from my Shure IEMs. Cannot say enough, highly recommended. Mark Strong

“As a professional musician, (Percussion, Keys, Drums, Studio) I’ve found the FCS11B IEM’s to be a very powerful tool for live and studio applications. Snug fit for good isolation, long cord for tangle free movement and a great sonic balance. Well-built and nicely packaged. They are a great value!”  ~ Frank McGucken (Madrigal Percussionist)

“I love the sound of my FCS11B IEM’s! They have great low-end response, and they fit my ears perfectly. I use them both on and off stage.” - Josh Weinstein (Kat Wright, Burlington VT)

I play Bass in a band called Cheat ’n on Tucker and we recently made the switch to IEMs.  However, none of the brands that I tried at first gave me that low end sound that I needed to perform my best. After going through 4 or 5 different brands, I finally found the FCS 11 by Freq City Sound. Game. Changer. They are the bomb! The FCS 11’s have the perfect sound necessary for Drummers and Bass players to stay tight when they need it most.  If you’re looking for the low-end answer to the IEM question, these bad boys are it. 10/10.

I'm using the 11B's and love them! Great fit with the wide selection of tips included.

Richer, more clear bass than my Shure SE's in custom molds, and I'm finding I can now run at a more comfortable volume level and have zero ear fatigue after use.   "Exactly as described in description" is cliché but spot on for the FCS11B's!

"Several years ago, I bought the FCS210's and have loved them.  Received the FCS11B's for Christmas and put the 210’s away as spares.  The additional driver size work great for me and easily rival name brands priced 2-3 times more."  Dr. Nick Swink, church & freelance bassist Tipp City Ohio

Hi Mike,
the FCS-11 In-Ear Monitors arrived today. Wow! these are the best sounding iems I have heard by far. I am glad I did not go for the bass enhanced FCS11Bass, as these are perfect. The bass is massive but not boomy. The mids and highs are perfect and overall, they take eq well. If I want a different sound signature. One other great thing I have noticed is that the sound does not change when I move my head or open my mouth, both things that other iems I have tried are very prone to do. The FCS-11 is very consistent. They also don't irritate my tinnitus, which is a blessing.

Most of the tips you sent sound great, I've settled so far on the double flange that were on the phones when I received them.

Thanks, I will be recommending these to my musician friends. Cheers,
