Reduced Stage Volume Gives You Cleaner Mixes

Personal monitor systems are prized for their ability to reduce stage volume. When band members hear instruments or vocals through monitor wedges and instrument amplifiers, competitive monitoring – that is, individual musicians turning up to hear themselves better – often results in a loud, cacophonous stage. This has the effect of muddying the house mix and causing excessive overall volume as the sound engineer is forced to turn up the mains to compensate for stage levels.

Shure personal monitor systems address these issues, and more, giving you a choice of three easy-to-use, feature-packed in-ear monitoring solutions to fit your needs and budget.

Transmitters and Receivers

When it comes to understanding how many personal monitor systems you'll need, think of the transmitter like a little radio station. To listen to one station (your monitor mix), you only need one transmitter, which will work with an unlimited number of receivers. However, if your performers need different mixes in their ears, you'll need a different transmitter for each mix.

Example: Your lead singer is particular about his mix, while your keyboard player and guitarist have been content sharing one monitor mix. Meanwhile, your bass player and drummer want yet another mix in their ears. In this case, you need three transmitters and five bodypack receivers.

PSM 300

Delivering pristine, 24-bit digital audio and over 300 feet of dependable wireless coverage, the PSM 300 gives you the benefits of advanced Shure technologies such as one-touch frequency scan and sync and Audio Reference Companding — at an entry-level price.

Shure's exclusive MixMode feature expands personalized control by transforming the stereo signal into dual-mono. Your beltpack receiver combines left and right audio channels and sends the combined signal to both sides of the earphones. The inputs to the system are now effectively "Mix 1" and "Mix 2" instead of left and right, with the receiver's balance control acting as a mix control, letting you choose between the two mixes or monitor a combination of both mixes. Panning left increases the level of "Mix 1" in both ears while reducing the level of "Mix 2," and vice versa.

Do you want the advantages of personal monitoring, but don't need to go wireless? If you don't move around onstage, a Shure PSM 400 or PSM 600 hardwired personal monitoring system may be just what you need! P4HW and the P6HW wired personal bodypack receivers are ideal for stationary performers who use in-ear monitors.
