MiEMi-m™ (pronounced Mimi), is a small 35mm high by 25mm wide adapter that sits on the end of a standard size measurement mic and allows you to measure frequency traces of custom fit & generic in ear monitors. MiEMi-m™ is the tool that’s currently missing from your audio toolbox. Being the serious serious monitor engineer you are, you should testing your bands IEMs at regular intervals the same way you’d check any one of the 100s of other products you use each day, incorporating it into your daily cleaning routine. What cleaning routine you say? Check this post for a how to on cleaning your in ear monitors.
The idea behind MiEMi-m™ is to add a new level of functionality to the tools most audio people already own. MiEMi-m™ shares its DNA with lab standard occluded ear simulators and measures pretty closely to them. Unlike other IEM testing tools it won’t cost you anywhere near as much so it won’t break your bank if you lose it or or drop it on tour, in fact our MIEMi-m/EMX 7150 plus kit allows you to do system tuning/calibration, SPL measurements & in ear monitor testing all for less than the cost of the closest alternative.
MiEMi-m™ is currently made in 2 sizes which fits the most popular measurement/reference microphones – 7mm(0.25″) & 8mm. We currently offer 3 kits to suite most budgets all with the option to add SmaartV9 if you don’t already own it.
Testing 1, 2
By using MiEMi-m™ to capture traces of your IEM’s at a point in time where they work perfectly, you’ll have a trace you can compare to further down the line. If there’s a change you’ll be able to see it and identify any errors, If your artists all use the same model you’ll be able to compare between models and see how close the individual sets are. Sometimes it’s sufficient to have a trace of only the one side or type to compare others to sometimes you might want to take a trace of L & R of every single IEM.

MiEMi™ is designed to be used with the tools you already carry, a measurement mic, an RTA, so it doesn’t require a huge reinvestment to make it work. It sits on the end of your measurement mic and interfaces your in ear monitors to your RTA.
Although MiEMi™ can give you a good idea of the frequency response of your IEM’s it’s designed to work with many different microphones. This means different mics will give slightly different responses, our experience with it is that the differences are from 4-5Khz up. What it can do is give you a very usable reference trace that you can use from day to day to see if everything is working correctly. It will also help you precisely set IEM’s with adjustable bass controls.
