Being a music lover and audiophiles leads us in some strange directions. While the smart consumer avoids mystical chips, wonky clock, radio foolery, or the expensive pseudo-belief mystical thimbles, pucks and dots, there are some common sense ways to tweak and maintain your high-end audio system. As am example, for many years I’ve been recommending Dynamat to cure resonances within your audio gear. But what about those of us who enjoy music via in-ear monitors? Surely there must be a way to ensure we're getting the best from our CIEMs while also keeping them operating at their very best? Well, the good folks at Serene Innovations are here to answer the call!
Serene Innovations created their ReNew for those who use hearing aids and want to keep them clean and functioning at optimum performance. If you think about it, what is an IEM other than a different take on a hearing aid. You put it inside your ear and perhaps wear it for many hours at a time. We all know this causes humidity build-up. Furthermore, while we all do our best to keep out ears clean, how do you sanitize your IEM(s)? Serene Innovations ReNew answers the call in applying gentle heat plus you can turn on the UV light to keep the icky bacteria stuff away too. So how do I write 1000+ words about something so very common sense that benefits IEM wearers? Frankly, I can’t so here’s the short script on it.
Seen above is the unit with Ultimate Ears UE 18 Pro, Noble Kaiser 10 in custom Italian rose gold Tiger Stripe, JH Audio JH13 and Roxanne custom fitted IEMs. Generally, I only have a single pair or two CIEMs in the unit at a time and not all four pairs as seen above.
Another problem some users of IEMs have is itching behind your ears. Look, you know it's true and someone needs to say it. You could also place your cable within the ReNew of course. I also suggest using antibacterial cleaner on a lint-free cloth and cleaning the cable that runs around the rear of your ear. None of us desire ear or skin infections. Using this simple process will keep your IEMs and cables clean and happy. So did I hear a difference?
Did I Hear A Difference?
I can highly recommend the Serene Innovations ReNew as it is a common sense way to keep your IEMs clean whilst also fighting bacteria. There are over 400 customer reviews of the ReNew on Amazon and 96% of them rate 4 or 5 stars. With such great feedback as the Serene Innovations ReNew works great, we music lovers who cherish our IEMs need to treat them with care the same way people who wear hearing aids on a daily basis do. Common sense solutions got a long way here folks, and for only $60 it should deliver many years of reliable use. The ReNew is not just highly recommended, it is a must-have for every IEM owner.
