3D Active Ambient – HardwiredPrice: Starting at $2,000
Product Description

Introduced in 2006, the original 3D Active Ambient IEM System is a unique, revolutionary IEM system that allows you to hear your monitor mix while mixing in a selectable level of on-stage ambient sound. For hardwired applications (typically, drummers and keyboardists), we still offer the 3DHW system, which accepts two balanced XLR inputs.

Available systems:
• Model 3DHW-1 (3D-L mixer, 3D-1 single driver ambient earphones)
• Model 3DHW-2 (3D-L mixer, 3D-2 dual driver ambient earphones
• Model 3DAA-1 (3D-M mixer, 3D-1 single-driver ambient earphones)
• Model 3DAA-2 (3D-M mixer, 3D-2 dual-driver ambient earphones)
