In addition, the band use a mix of e 935 and SKM 935 radio mics for vocals, and the whole band wear Sennheiser ew 300 G2 IEM in-ear monitoring systems.

Jon commented, "I started touring with Keane about three years ago and even then nearly all the microphones were Sennheiser". He goes on to reveal that "they've stayed with the 935 vocal mics ever since, mainly because the band likes them so much. Tom actually used the 935 in the studio to do the vocals for the last album."
