Anyone used the Galaxy IEM systems?

Discussion in 'Live Sound [BG]' started by sleepy_monkey, Jan 20, 2014.


  1. I am looking for an inexpensive IEM system. I will mainly be using it to send a signal to my powered speakers from an iPod or something but would like to be able to use them for a modest IEM system. Any experience with the AS-900 system? I already have some Shure SCL3 earbuds I can use in lieu of the included headphones.

    Anyway, just looking for other TBers that have used it. Fixed channel but my Sony wireless is 2.4 Ghz so that shouldn't interfere at all.

    My singer had them - terrible. He heard my Carvin system and immediately dumped the Galaxy.

  4. Terrible as in range, clarity,? Did he use other earbuds?

    I was going to get the Carvins but they have gone up $50 in price in the last 2 months.

    I'm not sure he had any range issues. He used *great* custom molded buds. I listened to the system with my buds - no clarity, drastically reduced frequency range when compared with the Carvins. Sounded like AM radio...
     
  6. Thanks Pacman....guess I will just keep saving to get the Carvins.

    Another vote for Carvin. Tried Galaxy agree with above. Had Shure PSM 200 that is almost $600 .
     
  10. I would buy the Carvins now, but their price has been fluctuating on their site and on eBay. 349....369....349....369.....399. I am assuming that $399 is the new price.

    Keep your eye on ebay too. I have seen them pop up there before at reasonable bucks used.
     
  12. yeah the galaxy audio ones are terrible..i had this weird fluttering noise at higher volumes...was terrible...i would say in the same price range the shure psm200 system is way better...
     
  13. If you want to stay cheap, the wii audiolink system would be great for wirelessly playing your Ipod through the PA. The sound quality is excellent. rechargeable battery like a laptop.

    con:
    Latency out the wazoo makes it difficult to use as IEM's. I do use them in one band where I play keyboards and it's not a problem there. But I hate using it for bass, it throws me off.
     
  14. I'll second the Shure PSM200. I think it's just fine. I also use the Shure 425 ear buds. No problems except for one blown bud in about 5 years (which I got repaired from Shure in a timely manner).
     

  15. Yeah, I have looked at those. Everywhere I look mentions latency issues, so I really don't want to consider them for IEMs. They would probably work for the powered speakers but I think I would be better off getting good IEMs instead of having 2 systems.
