PSM 900 In-Ear Personal Monitoring System

PSM 900 In-Ear Personal Monitoring System

The PSM 900 In-Ear Personal Monitoring System from Shure offers a clear and accurate audio quality and robust RF performance. Innovative features allowing for ease of use and quick setup make it the ideal solution for the most demanding professional applications. All new, patent-pending CueMode allows the sound engineer to monitor different stage mixes with the touch of a button. Precision front-end RF filtering significantly reduces dropouts from RF interference.

The PSM 900 In-Ear Personal Monitoring System offers clear audio quality and robust RF performance for pro applications.

CueMode* – Instantly listen to any stage mix

This feature allows for auditioning of up to 20 different mixes on a single bodypack at the touch of a button. Simply hear what the performer hears, without the need for any additional equipment.

Scan and Sync – Find channels easily and immediately

Scan the RF environment and assign an identified group and channel to a system over wireless IR link within seconds.

RF Mute Switch – The "Do Not Disturb" RF button

Ideal for festivals and multi-venue events, the front-panel RF mute switch on the P9T transmitter enables or disables RF transmission, allowing setup operation without disrupting the RF environment.

Clear and accurate audio quality

  • Patented Audio Reference Companding sounds more like wired

Robust RF performance

  • Precision front-end RF filtering, the same found in industry-leading UHF-R wireless systems, significantly reduces RF interference for a cleaner, stronger RF signal, fewer dropouts, and less audible artifacts
  • Exceptional transmitter linearity vastly reduces frequency intermodulation, allows up to 20 compatible channels per frequency range
  • Auto RF gain control prevents signal distortion due to RF overload before it can affect performance

  •  "the hardest thing with the PSM900 is knowing if they're actually switched on. They're so clean and so crisp that they almost feel as if they have a gate on them. There's complete isolation and just… nothing!"

Andrew Dobbins, Tour Manager of Passion Pit

 

  •  "We had the chance to try PSM 900 prototypes on the Daltrey tour. Roger and I both think they sound incredible, and they have been absolutely flawless for us. 

 Simon Higgs, Monitor Engineer for The Who

  •  "It sounds fantastic, and it’s clearly been designed to make life easy for monitor engineers"

 Monty Carlo, Monitor Mixer for Slash

  • "I am very impressed by the new PSM900 system. The sound quality is superb, and the whole package is very well built. The thing that really sets it apart from everything else on the market though is the new 'CUEMODE' system on it. Using a beltpack in 'CUE' mode I can dial in to any performers monitor mix and listen to exactly what they are hearing. If I stand next to them I can even experience the same RF patterns as they are. It is a real game changer. After our first gig with PSM900 IEM, the band came off stage with multiple members stating it was the best on stage sound they have ever had. I am completely sold, they are on our rider from this point on!"

Simon Ryder, Soul II Soul Monitor Engineer

  • "The on stage sound had cleared up so much by going to IEMs that I was able to 'finesse' my mix in a way that I have never been able to before. It was almost like mixing them in the studio"

Brandon Knights, Soul II Soul FOH Engineer
