    My band has recently decided to use in ears for live use to help with our timing and cohesion.

    I have a transmitter and receiver, but need to get the actual in ears.

    What are the best options for a guitarist in the sub $100 range?

    Unfortunately in ears are that kind of product you shouldn't cheap out on. When I bought mine I tested out loads and informed myself about what's important in them and in the end, the sub 400€ category just doesn't cut it. Lacking some necessary frequencies, it would have been a pain to use in a band context.

    I’ll second the M6 Pro’s. I am so surprised how great they are (for single driver; they don’t hold a candle to multi drivers). I made custom ear molds for my set and they work perfectly for what I need in an IEM setup.

    Kz zs6 quad drivers by far they absolutely smashed everything I've tried under the $500 mark. These sell new for $45 on amazon I would reccomend getting a upgrade cable and custom tips for them to get the best results
