I'm new here hello everyone. I play saxophone in a group here in my town and decided to start using in ear monitor. I bought the Behringer powerplay p1, the one where I get to control the volume with my headphones or ear buds connected, sweetwater states that it also has a built-in limiter to protect your hearing. I am pretty nervous using it since I read about Luis Miguel having a incident where his in ear monitor damaged his ear from a malfunction in the system where the was a loud boom and caused him permanent tinnitus. My question is with the equipment that I purchased. Can that happened to me with the Behringer system that I have or did this happened to him because he didn't have volume control? Thanks in advance.
