About Shure PSM Personal Monitor Systems:

Shure’s Personal Monitor Systems replace traditional wedge speakers to make it possible for musicians to gain control of what they hear onstage by creating personal, in ear mixes. The systems enable performers to have: a personal mix, free of unwanted stage sounds; a freedom of movement that releases performers from standing in only one spot onstage; and an ease of portability that far exceeds that of bulky floor wedge monitors. Furthermore, PSM systems, when used properly, can aid musicians in hearing conservation.
