In Ear Monitor (IEM) Connection Guide
This is your all inclusive guide to owning, optimizing and buying
your In Ear Monitors (IEM's).
Learn how to:
1. Connect your IEM's to an Upgrade Silver Dragon or Black Dragon Headphone Cable
One rule to remember for connecting our Dragon Cables to your IEMs is that
Red is Right (R&R)
- 1. With Red dot facing up toward the sky, slip in cable connection straight and flush with the RIGHT IEM.
- 2. Repeat step 1 with LEFT IEM and Blue dot.
2. Properly Coil and Store your IEM's and Audio Cable
Keep your in ear monitors at peak performance and sound quality by:
1. Place amp connector in the palm of your hand facing you.
3. Place the cable with your pouch or carrying case with your custom IEM's. This will keep the cable performing at its peak performance and protect the silver (or copper) conductors inside.
