OVERVIEW

Personal in-ear monitor amplifier.

The POWERPLAY P1 Personal In-Ear Monitor (IEM) Amplifier puts control where it' most useful “ right at the artist' fingertips. Whether on stage or in the studio, the P1 provides performers and recording artists with a dependable and affordable personal monitoring solution.

Drummer-Proof Output
The P1' high-power headphone output ensures that as the band gets louder, you™ll still be able to hear every nuance of your performance. And the P1' simple user interface makes it easy for everyone to dial in a perfect mix every time.

Using the P1 also helps protect your hearing in two ways. First, thanks to a built-in current limiter, unexpected peaks in signal level won't get to your ears. Second, the simple act of wearing headphones or earbuds helps isolate your ears from loud stage volume of instrument amps and monitor wedges. With the P1, you can clearly hear your own performance and blend in the ideal amount of the rest of the band.

The Perfect Monitor Mix
Dual XLR inputs allow 2-channel, mono or stereo operation with a convenient mix function which allows you to run two sources into the P1 and dial-in exactly what you want to hear as you perform. Two simple controls, Level and Balance, help you achieve the perfect mix in an instant. The P1 lets you take control of what you hear and allows the engineer to concentrate on providing the audience the best listening experience. Plus, setup is so fast and easy, letting you concentrate on putting on the best performance when you hit the stage.

Power to Last
One little 9 V battery lasts up to 12 hours, so the P1 will go as long as your next show or studio recording session! Or, use the optional PSU-SB DC power supply for the ultimate in dependable power. And the P1's metal chassis is built like a tank to handle even your most- demanding and energetic performance. Small enough to hang on your belt “ or mount on a mic or drum stand, the P1 puts complete balance and volume control in your hands.


Be sure what you hear is clear, order today!

Good quality product with minor drawback.

Great for guitarists but drummer's should be aware that power switch location may shut off while hitting your jeans when wearing on hip.

Comments about Behringer Powerplay P1 In-Ear Monitor Amplifier:

It's basically a smallish, battery powered 2 channel mixer with 2 XLR inputs and 1 1/8 TRS output. Works great and comes in handy for things you may not originally intended. Well built, quiet operation, fairly heavy duty, knob potentiometers feel solid and smooth. It has decent head room, but another 6dB would've been really nice, for a little more wiggle room, when gain staging. I occasionally do some busking (all on batteries) with a trio, we run XLR outs of a Roland AC33 and whatever battery-powered amp the bassist has into the 1/8 input of my Roland Street Cube EX. Have also used to give me a monitor mix coming out of my Yamaha THR10. I've probably used it half a dozen other ways too.

            We use this for in ear monitors in our church. It works perfect and doesn't mean to make an huge investment. The whole band are very happy with this acquisition and make us look more professional too. We are actually looking for in ear headsets because we are using the iPhone ones.

              Comments about Behringer Powerplay P1 In-Ear Monitor Amplifier:

              This really opened up the world for our drummer. Now he can hear clearly and has control over his own mix without relying on wedge monitors. His playing has improved dramatically because now he can hear everybody. We are going to use a click track for one input and the second input to monitor the rest of the band. Our stage volume has been reduced as well.
              Great solution for anybody that does not need to move around a lot on stage.
              We have had one for several months but did not get around to trying it out until last night. We bought two more for our keyboard and bass player the day after we tried these out at rehearsal with our drummer.
              Couple these with Shure SE215 or similar high end earbuds and you have an affordable in-ear solution for half the cost of a wireless system.

              Very affordable way to get into an in-ear monitor system. It is just as good as the wireless but at a fraction of the cost. Only negative is the poorly constructed battery compartment door but still worth it. Battery life is as advertised. You will get about two gigs out of a brand new battery.

                Our band was using small mixers for personal IEM . Decided to go with these because they are built like a tank, small and sound great. The Stereo/Mono switch and separate level balance are perfect for our needs. We didn't need to spend all the extra $$s for wireless since we are all tied to pedal boards or behind a drum kit. Works great with the aux outs from our Presonus RM32ai.

                  Really expected to be able to run this out of a pedal board and run to some headphones. The volume just isn't there. This is a headphone amplifier. Why does it not have enough headroom to drive headphones? I've never heard of a headphone amp that needs a preamp.

                        We used this with our Drummer so he can hear a backing track. Unfortunately there is a bit of static on one side. Since this uses the bulky heavy microphone cord inputs instead of a 1/4" it puts a lot of stress on the inputs which seems to have affected the unit. Other than that it's a great product. I would not buy this again because of the bulkiness of the product. Our drummer would like something more streamlined to deal with. It has a clip to put on your belt or whatever but there is just too much weight to use it effectively that way.

                            Comments about Behringer Powerplay P1 In-Ear Monitor Amplifier:

                            I'm a drummer and I use this for personal adjustment of my Shure ear monitor. Got back clipping noise with another small amp I was using. This one also mounts to mic stand so I can stand up behind drums. I like!
