  4. Yes budget is a huge part of what is possible. Quality Varies greatly. Be careful if buying an older Shure model if you live in the US. There is an overlapping frequency range that is reserved for emergency services. I found a newer company called 1964 Ears that makes custom earbuds. The quad drivers (Q4) have incredible bass response. Much better than my custom Westones did. Here is an exhaustive comparison list of earbuds.

    IMHO the buds are much more important than the transmitter/ receiver. Ive used the Sure 400, 500 and 700 models and also Senheiser 300 which I'm currently using. I remember trying to use one unit with 2 packs. There's so much crosstalk between mixes that it's pointless unless your mixes are very similar. Besides, running your Ears in stereo makes a HUGE difference in the musical experience. Be forewarned that your bass will not sound anything like what's coming out of your amp.

    If it is for an installed system in a club, I think that investing in the Shure SE425 is not quite necessary. You can inform the bands that you have the in-ear system and that you provide the basic included SE215 IEM's. They should bring in their own custom or personal IEM's if they wish.

    The PSM-200 should work, just keep in mind that frequency selection is limited (you can select between 2 fixed frequencies on each belt pack), so if you're planning on getting more than two systems now or in the future, you'll have to play with different ranges and fixed frequency units. The more expensive ones are much more flexible while operating multiple systems together.
