Need More Me?

The Behringer Powerplay P1 personal in-ear monitor amplifier puts monitor mix control into your hands. On stage, stop trying to flag down the sound engineer for your monitor mix tweaks. Instead, turn yourself up when needed. If you're a studio engineer, the Powerplay P1's dual inputs put the cue mix in the musician's hands and lets you focus on the main mix. Powered by battery or optional power supply, the level and balance/mix controls give you the tools you need to create your perfect monitor mix. Incredibly useful on stage or in the studio, Behringer's Powerplay P1 personal in-ear monitor amplifier is a budget-friendly solution to your monitoring woes.

Behringer Powerplay P1 Personal in-ear Monitor Amplifier at a Glance:
  • Take care of your most important instrument
  • Easily get "more me"
  • What about studio monitoring?
Take care of your most important instrument

Sweetwater engineers and musicians know their primary instrument is their ears, and so is yours! By wearing in-ear monitors or headphones on stage instead of using a floor monitor, your ears are protected from screaming amps and hard-hitting drummers, and the isolation keeps your ears focused on your mix. You won't need nearly as much volume and you'll get a better monitoring experience. Behringer respects how important your hearing is as a performer too, so the P1 also includes a built-in limiter to protect your ears even further.

Easily get "more me"

There's nothing wrong with needing "more me" and the P1's powerful headphone output makes sure you'll be able to hear yourself perfectly no matter how loud things get on stage. Get the band together for rehearsal and use your digital audio mixer to dial in and save everyone's monitor mix - cut your sound check time down to nothing and finally take advantage of all those auxiliary outputs. Dual XLR inputs give you two channels of signal that you can use in mono or stereo mode so you have the power to hear yourself and blend in the perfect amount of the band. Slip the P1 on your belt and get the best monitoring experience you've ever had - your band and the audience will thank you!

What about studio monitoring?

The 9-volt battery operation and rugged metal chassis make the P1 perfect for stage, but what about the studio? As an engineer, the P1 puts the control of balance and volume into the hands of the musicians, leaving you to focus on the tracking. As a musician, control your mix and level without having to stop in the middle of a take. Using an optional power supply, you can set up a permanent monitoring station by mounting the device to a mic stand - run your input cables once and easily do all the cue signal routing within your DAW.

Behringer Powerplay P1 Personal In-ear Monitor Amplifier Features:
  • High-powered headphone output with limiter protects your ears; loud enough for drummers
  • Dual XLR inputs, mono or stereo operation, and Level and Balance controls give you control over your monitor mix
  • Convenient belt-clip and 9-volt battery with dual LED capacity indicators keeps you grooving on stage
  • Use with an optional power supply and mount on a standard mic stand for a permanent studio monitoring station
Bring hands-on control to your monitoring with Behringer's Powerplay P1!

Great headphone amp for drummers!

Perfect wired in headphone amp for drummers. If you don't move around on stage, it's the perfect amp at a great high quality and amazing price! Nice clean sound, plenty of volume and gain and lightweight. Gives a drummer the chance to dial in that perfect mix for live or even in the studio!

Low budget option!

I use the P1 to hear my own mix and instrument. For the price it's pretty sturdy and well built. Yes there are more evolved and complex options but for the setup we have, the P1 has proven to be reliable and a solution for an in-ear monitoring system.

This is the right thing!

I used a Rolls headphone monitor for my in-ears and finally retired it as it just didn't have the power to get a good sound without breaking up. The Behringer kicks butt! I have used it a few times since getting it a couple of weeks ago and it has a great sound and I actually had to turn the volume DOWN (and I sit in front of a 5 piece horn section!) this past Saturday night. I highly recommend it for a tethered in-ear monitoring system. I'm a keyboard player - run sound for the band at the same time, so I use a stereo mix that mirrors the main mix and it's excellent.

Hearing savers

The dreaded floor wedge feedback is gone. Our five piece has gone in ears at $50 a person. The P1 coupled with Shure 215's sound fantastic. The Behringer X18 mixer has six bus sends that can be tailored to suit all five mixes individually. Plenty of volume and flexibility. Stage volume is not a issue anymore. Vocals are carried on top of the mix without competing with guitar amps and volume wars.

Well beyond what I expected

I bought two of these for my worship band (drums and keys) to cut down on monitor noise. After having used the Rolls PM50s at my church for a while, I was really looking for something WITHOUT the need of a power cable. Not only did I find it, but this box's user-friendly-ness is so much better! XLR input (no need for a XLR - 1/4 adaptor) Battery operated a simply Volume knob AND stereo capabilities with an easily accessable push button And none of the frequencies are lost within the box. Just make sure the ear buds you use can handle the frequencies you want to hear, haha!
