I used to use them when playing bass in bands. They saved my voice as well as my ears. I used Sennheiser transmitter and Shure headphones. They were brilliant. The whole system was a snip at just £800, a similar set today would probably be even cheaper.
More recently I used a wired set-up (a Rolls PM351 from Thomann and my old Shures) for a couple of band gigs. I've never used them for solo gigs though because I like to hear the sound of the room.

I've used an old trantec system for years and that was only bought second hand as an experiment. Its been the best what ever it cost I've probably ever spent. £100 I think... I've used various headphones from cheapies to expensive shure and Sennhieser . I put my vocals and a bit guitar to help pitch in my mix when playing with the Alfies....In the past on bigger stages it would been keys and a bit of kick drum. On thing I've always done is to use only one ear piece and that way I hear the room and the band.

Shure in ears...about £80. Play my guitar through them too....

Trickle the bass drum and I can use both earphones and protect my ears
