Polsen BCPM-1 Passive Belt Clip Personal in-Ear Monitor Amplifier
  • VOLUME CONTROL - If you're sitting behind a keyboard or drum kit, changing the monitoring volume in your headphones is trickier than it sounds. If you can't walk over to the headphone amp or give the "more volume" sign to the sound engineer, the BCPM-1 is for you. It puts a volume knob right at your belt, so you can dial in the perfect monitor level any time you need it
  • HEADPHONE JACK - Use your favorite studio or monitoring headphones, earbuds, or in-ear monitors. The standard stereo 1/8" (3.5mm) headphone jack accepts them all
  • COMBO INPUT JACK - Because monitoring is so critical to your performance, the XLR jack features a locking mechanism to prevent the connector from accidentally disconnecting—like if there's a little tug, or even if someone trips over your cable. When you're done, just press the locking tab to disconnect. Not using an XLR cable? No problem. The BCPM-1's combo jack accepts 1/4" connectors, too
  • COMPACT AND DURABLE - Thanks to the BCPM-1's compact and lightweight design, you'll forget it's there until you need to adjust your volume. The monitor is made with a sturdy metal chassis that can take the bumps of travel and live stage performance
