    Having been an active drummer for over 30 yrs, I've always used a wedge monitor for live performances. My ears would ring after shows for days! I decided to try in-ear monitors and started reading reviews, and that led me to the Galaxy system. I have absolutely no complaints whatsoever. Heres the deal... these need a monitor mix line out signal from your mixer to work properly! Being a drummer, I have the vocals, guitars, bass and drums all at a level that is comfortable and evenly mixed, and it sounds absolutely awsome! Plenty of head room on the volume control left as well! I took the advice of some of the other reviews and ordered a pair of Westcom in-ear buds...glad I did. The Galaxy buds are ok, but arnt nearly as clear and comfortable as the Westcoms. Also, the harshness of being behind a kit is toned down considerably. To make a long story short, I'm very pleased with how this new monitor system works for me, and should have gone this route a long long time ago! PS... the only reason I rated this a 4 star was because of the ear buds, and that was easily rendered by Westcom!

    I ordered this item as my band is transitioning from floor wedge monitor speakers to have better control over our stage volume and to reduce stage clutter. I selected the AS-900 for its reasonable price compared to other brands (roughly half their starting prices) and generally good reviews by others. First trial of the unit in a rehearsal situation was very disappointing: even with upgraded earpieces, bass is nonexistant, this was one area where I kind of counted on the manufacturer's spec to be conservative, but no -- there really isn't *anything* below 80 Hz. Worse, the unit is susceptible to *very* loud "FM hash" to the extent that it could have potential for accelerating hearing damage.

    And it's non-returnable. Oh joy.

    The really frustrating thing is that, on a real gamble, I bought a VERY entry-level, no-name offshore unit through that big on-line store (starts with "A") for one fourth the price of the Galaxy unit that, while more cheaply made, actually sounds and works much better.

        Plugged it in and played. Works great for us. No noise. I was wary because of some of the bad reviews I read but figured I could always return it. Well, I won't be returning it! It works great. Even the cheap earphones are perfectly functional. A tiny bit of distortion when we get cooking, but I expect this would disappear with the upgrade of a better quality ear phone. I don't plan on the upgrade any time soon - it's that minor a problem.

        I bought these when I got tired of the singer in the band complaining he couldn't hear when the floor monitors were maxed out. I bought a set of Shure SE215 ear buds to use withe system. Our singer loves it. He doesn't strain as much because he can hear himself. The receiver case is pretty flimsy and the battery door broke but I was able to fix it with some Velcro tape. You can't beat this for the price. Stereo mode has a lot of noise.

        Comments about Galaxy Audio AS-900 Wireless Personal System:

        I play guitar and sing in a classic rock band. We decided to go wireless with our stage monitors to stop the volume war on stage. I used these for a gig last weekend and loved it! I heard everything I wanted and nothing that I didn't! Only had one problem when I had to change the batteries and couldn't see which way they went in. I put them in backwards and then couldn't open it again! Played the last set without them but it was OK. I didn't try the earbuds that came with the unit, but the singer and other guitar player are using them and say they are fine. If you're having issues with the sound quality turn your signal down! There is plenty of volume in this unit but if you push a hard signal to the unit it won't sound good! The only guys in the band who aren't using these now are the drummer and bass player and I can tell you our sound has improved 90%! Wish we had done this years ago! I would give this 5 stars if it were made a little more rugged.

        Meant to get one of these for a long time. Singing powerful gospel in small venue had MY sound too loud for audience. Answered all monitor problems. Hear the power myself with speakers low for others. It could have better instructions as can see difficulty for novice operator. WHY WOULD ANYONE want too pay more for basic same item is beyond me. If you get constant complaints about volume.....get one. I love mine.

        Comments about Galaxy Audio AS-900 Wireless Personal System:

        Let me start by saying that you will have to spend twice as much to beat these, so for those who would put them down, get out your checkbook or adjust your expectations. These things sound good... Not great but Very Good. One of the persistant criticisms is on the earbuds and I have to say that I kind of regret buying the more expensive ear buds because I preceeded to break them on the break of the first set at the fist gig and the buds that came with this are really not bad. Again, not great, but not bad either. I would stronly suggest trying the included ear buds before you upgrade.

        The thing is that with really good buds, you will find this system to by just a tad dull but not really in a bad way. At least they are not harsh or muddy. I had a Galaxy Hot Spot for years and it sounded fantastic. What I mean is that I don't think that the dulness is an accident. I think it's so you can hear clearly, without the feelilng of ice picks in your ears. The folks at Galaxy know what they are doing. After one gig, I can't live without them

        Comments about Galaxy Audio AS-900 Wireless Personal System:

        I ordered this unit about a year ago. When I first received the unit, I set it up and tried it out. For some reason, the channel wasn't aligned properly on the receiver, so the sound was out of balance in my headphones (About 70/30). I should have just asked for a refund then, but Musicians Friend shipped me out a new unit and it seemed to work fine.

        It did a pretty decent job for a few months, with the exception of it compressing my feed into sludge at moderate input levels. However recently, the audio quality on it has gotten so bad that everything is distorted and compressed, and it is totally unusable. This is regardless of any setting that I threw at it. Now it isn't returnable and Galaxy isn't answering any of my emails.

        Overall, save your pennies and get a nicer system. If you really need in-ears, you can make a decent wired system for a fraction of the cost, with 100% more reliability.

        Comments about Galaxy Audio AS-900 Wireless Personal System:

        We have been looking for new wireless gear for our church for some time now. With the 700 band ban coming to a store near you in Canada we knew we needed some replacements. One of our psm 400's is also on the fritz. We have been using shure gear mostly and have been mostly happy with it. The 400's and the 600's. when I saw the price of this item I was skeptical but read lots of reviews and thought we would give it a try. We also had some space in the frequency range that these items are offered at so it worked out. We haven't had it long but so far its been all you could ask for at this price range and if you don't expect things it can't do then it works. The ear buds are average but if you have iem's then you already know that you need good ones.

        Setup is easy and range is actually pretty good. We haven't tested the range extensively but who needs to...as long as it works from the source to the receiver.

        The body pack doesn't feel any less durable then the psm 400 and with care should hold up nicely especially at this price point.

        Would have been nice to have mix mode on these units so you could have two separate mixes (left and right) to two different packs. We also have not yet tried it in stereo as we never really will need to. So I can't comment on that.

        All in all if you are looking for a cheaper alternative to the big guns this is a great little unit.

        Oh and no it doesn't have buzz/white noise problems also know as rf interference. As long as you manage your rf band usage properly.

        The bass response is decent but as suggested below below 80 clarity starts to drop off.
