Custom Fitted In Ear Monitors w/ Microphone?

I have some of the WEIRDEST questions probably, but you know how those K-pop and J-pop idols have the mics coming from their ears? are those actually plugged into their In ear monitors? 1. If they do, are they actually good? 2. I would assume that they would be great noise canceling on some level or they would hear nothing but the croud. I Do know that most of the time you have someone talking into your ear when your verse is coming and doing a count down so it's a bit easier, but that's more for the headphones than the IEM. I am more concerned about the microphone in this case than the IEM. For context: - I am looking for something as minimalistic looking as possible. (clear, - I am just a streamer so I am in a bedroom that's not really treated for noise deadening, there's no band or anything, I'll be moving around a bunch in a green suit all chromad out. - I wanted to go to a lavalier (Shure MVL Lavalier + DJI Mic TX/RX) but my beard is too long so there's a lot of scratching - honestly I think this would work best if I could eliminate this problem but no one seems to have a beard my size so the only answer I have gotten from people so far is "Just cut your beard off :4HEad: " - I have an sm7b but it's not good when you're more than a foot away or turn around completely (I'll be like 4-5 ft away at times and walking away) - My boom mic (Synco MIC-D2 Hyper-Cardioid) is...well it's a boom mic in an untreated bedroom so there will be a ton of reverb Do I even have any options outside of heavily EQing something?

Stage mics for performance are usually something like a Countryman E6 (https://www.countryman.com/product/e6-earset/) or H6 (https://www.countryman.com/product/h6-headset/) which no are not typically part of the IEM solution, just a mic.

There's also the Crown CM-311A and DPA 4488 (by the way, this stuff gets expensive in a hurry πŸ˜†). Generally speaking though, consider the IEM and the microphone solution to be 2 separate things. Get the best fit for both for your solution. One other thing you could potentially consider is a Rodecaster Duo (or Pro II) with a studio mic on the first mic channel and a wireless lav from Rode (like the RODE Wireless PRO) on the second mic channel and switching between them when you need to be farther away from the normal studio mic setup.

You can buy moldable ear plugs on Amazon and just press fit the IEMs in them during the molding process

that's actually a crazy idea, has anyone done that? I think it could actually work...I just don't know if they would allow it? What would the reason of the "Directional Headset" microphone be? Does that just mean that it will be more concentrated to where it's directed?

It’s how they make custom molded IEMs
