Shure Previews New Wireless Monitor System at NAMM

Shure has announced the upcoming release of the PSM 900 Wireless Personal Monitor System, which delivers top-quality audio and RF performance for professional events, installations, and tours. The product was previewed at the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Show in Anaheim, CA.

At the heart of the PSM 900 system are an all-metal, ultra-thin wireless bodypack receiver (P9R) and a half-rack single wireless transmitter (P9T). The PSM 900 also will be available with Shure’s dual driver SE425 Sound Isolating Earphones (also previewed at NAMM along with triple driver SE535 headphones), which feature enhanced sound signatures and premium dual speaker technology in a small, lightweight design. Unlike earlier SE models, the SE425 features a unique, detachable cable and formable wire at the earpiece giving performers accurate sound and a secure fit.

“For well over a decade, Shure has been at the center of live performance with innovative wireless products that have allowed artists and performers to hear every nuance of their efforts while moving freely around the stage,” says Mark Humrichouser, GM of the Americas business unit for Shure. “With the PSM 900, we’ve built upon these innovations to create a new class of personal monitor, precision-engineered to deliver superior audio within a system that’s effortless to set up and unmatched in reliability. It’s an exceptional product with all of the hallmarks of Shure’s sound, and we couldn’t be more excited to bring it to market.”

The PSM 900 is priced at  $1,650 (without earphones) or $1,800 (with SE425 earphones) and will ship in early to mid 2010. The P9R wireless bodypack receiver and P9T wireless transmitter are available as separate components priced at $676USD and $974 respectively.
