5 reasons to buy a new IEM cable

There's an industry legend that it wasn't until The Beatles played the Shea Stadium in 1965 that monitors of any kind were used to hear clearer music. The story goes that the sound of screaming was so loud that the band could barely hear themselves, let alone each other, so their road crew frantically laid down some extra sets of amplifiers to direct the sound straight back at them.
