Electro-Pop rockers, Passion Pit, have been touring relentlessly since the band first shot to fame with their debut full-length studio album Manners in 2009.

Now on tour supporting Muse, Passion Pit are currently playing their way across the US on their autumn tour.

Tour Manager and Monitor Engineer for Passion Pit use the channel 38 ready Shure In-Ear Monitors and "are over the moon" with them! Engineer Francois Pare says:

"The hardest thing with the PSM900 is knowing if they're actually switched on! There's complete isolation and just... Nothing!"

Tour Manager Andrew Dobbins, who is constantly listening in on the band during rehearsals and performances, goes on to say:

"The PSM900s score highly on sound quality and new features, but there's also a certain future-proofing built in - namely the 2012 switchover to digital"

The 2012 Switchover is Government policy meaning that analogue to almost everyone will be able to receive digital TV through an aerial.

This means that wireless users will no longer be able to use TV channel 69 (854-862MHz), but instead should use the replacement TV channel 38.

All Shure Wireless Microphone Systems are now Channel 38 Compliant/Digital Switchover ready.
