Looking for any advice or recommendations. I would have never used any such device before so am fairly in the dark, save for some online reviews which can only offer so much. As a drummer, should I be looking at getting a personal system? Are budget systems not worth piss? I'm assuming you get what you pay for. All help in the matter appreciated.

If you're going for cheap ones, get a set of "Doc's Proplugs," clip the end off and push the stem of the earbud through. Complete isolation meaning you only hear what you ask for in your monitor mix. I do exactly the same with a fairly mid-tier in ear system and it works a charm.

Bear in mind though, that going the in ear route means you're at the mercy of the in house system/engineer
