    Did you ever wonder why musicians wear headphones? I looked it up and it is some technical stuff! I could have spent weeks researching the subject! In the recording studio it keeps different tracks from bleeding onto on another. All the parts of the song are recorded separately and mixed back together at the end. The singer hears the music quietly in the headphones so that only the singer's isolated voice will be recorded.

    When I watched Michael Jackson's This Is It movie, he complained about the ear pieces feeling like a fist was being jammed in his ear because it was the first time that he had worn them.

    One problem in live performances is that the artists are behind the loud speakers and they can't hear their own music. So, they put small speakers (floor monitors) backwards facing the band. Pretty sure that I have seen Mr. Reynolds climbing around on those. So, if the singer gets too close to one of those monitors with the microphone feedback can be created by the microphone picking up the sound from the monitor.

    This picture is from Ben McKee's Instagram account. His case for his earpieces says, "Daddy."
    The ear pieces Imagine Dragons wear are called In Ear Monitors (IEM's)
    The gadgets are basically an ear plug with high quality ear buds inside.
    For singers, it helps to hear themselves in the earpiece to stay in tune and to prevent voice strain.
    Imagine Dragons have one special microphone on stage that only goes to the ear pieces and not the loud speakers. The stage manager can talk to them and they could talk to one another.

    Dan sometimes takes his earpieces out when he talks to the audience so that he can hear. He also just dances out of them occasionally! I always wondered how he kept from losing the battery pack for the microphone until Ben's last post on Instagram! Duct tape fixes everything!😂

    This picture is from backstage at a concert just minutes before they go onstage!😍

    At Farm Aid, Imagine Dragons had to briefly pause the show because Dan's ear pieces wouldn't stay on. He tried to fix it himself and couldn't fix it. A stage hand fixed it and the show went on!
