Overview

The 24-bit Line 6 X2 XDS95 digital wireless system delivers your instrument's tone and performance with the sound and feel of a direct wire connection”at a price that won't break your bank. The Line 6 systme's 24-bit digital converters yield 117dB of dynamic range to capture your most expressive performances without tone-squashing companding circuitry.

The wireless X2 XDS-95 also offers 5 simultaneously compatible channels, frequency response all the way down to 10Hz for truly thundering lows, and TRS 1/4" output for instrument and full-bandwidth or tuner out applications. Line 6 also includes a 5-segment LED display for readouts of battery status, link status, audio level, and channel.

Operating the Line 6 wireless system is easy”simply connect the transmitter to the source via the 1/8" threaded-collar locking connector and the stompbox-style receiver to your amplifier, mixer, or pedal board. Then power up, with the transmitter and receiver set to the same channel. That's it”no knobs to adjust, no antennas to lose or break. You're up and running in approximately the same time it takes to connect an instrument or mic cable.

Boasting wide frequency response and increased dynamic range, the Line 6 X2 XDS95 produces brilliant sound quality comparable to that of high-quality audio cables. Instead of tripping over dozens of feet of tangled cable, performers will fall for X2 XDS95 wireless system's clear and powerful tone.

Extremely versatile, the Line 6 X2 XDS95 even simplifies the recording process. The extended frequency response, 10Hz-12kHz, satisfies the expectations guitarists have come to demand from high-quality cable, but without the tangled mess. With their rigs cranked to 11 in the iso-booth, guitarists can play near the band and keep the all-important vibe and that ensures a great take.

Line 6's X2 XDS95 uses four internal antennas to guarantee a strong and constant signal and to neutralize static, interference, and jamming caused by cell phones, wireless networks, and other sources of RF energy.

Line 6 includes a digital UHF bodypack transmitter, digital UHF stompbox receiver, instrument cable, user's guide, and batteries with the X2 XDS95 wireless system.

I got one of these just before we left town for a small tour, it worked flawlessly. Super easy setup, if you can even call it a setup. plug and play really. I didn't notice any sort of drop off or loss in tone, I'm sure there had to be some, but I'm a gear snob and I couldn't hear it. I feel like the price is great, especially considering how expensive some wireless units are, and like I said this one works great. I wouldn't want to use it if I was playing gigs for thousands of people, but playing clubs in Hollywood and Socal it does everything I need it to.

i have this model and the rack mount model. they both sound amazing. i play 4-5 nights a week and use these things constantly. i have used ev, audio technica, and shure wirelesses in the past and none of them articulate the low end of my bass like these. 2 weeks into buying these the transmitter pack cord died on both. so i shelled out for the neutrik ended cord. way better. but then 3 months later the jack in the transmitter cut out. if you are going to buy this do yourself a favor, buy the neutrik cord and get the performance guarentee

Excellent Sound & Construction

By J Guns

from Clovis, CA

I bought this over several more expensive systems back when I was still a GC employee. I bought it, basically, to replace a Mogami instrument cable that had been stolen, and it delivers a crystal-clear tone that was a dead-ringer for my missing Mogami. I've never had a problem with construction like a few people have mentioned, and I use it on a daily basis in my rig for practice and for 2-4 gigs a month. I DID tear the clip off the back of the transmitter, by choice, so I could comfortably put it in my back pocket, but that was my own doing. The floor-pedal-size receiver unit is sturdy, and small enough to go right next to your other pedals. I have stomped the living hell out of this thing, thinking I was standing over my channel switch, and there's not even a scratch. Overall, it's a killer wireless for a lot less than the expensive systems.

Affordable but unreliable

By Slinger

from Minneapolis, MN

I bought one in January 2009. The transmitter clip isn�ۡ���t strong enough to attach to a guitar strap, so I removed it and used duct tape. I experienced many times when the receiver does not pick up the signal from the transmitter, even though the transmitter has a fresh battery and gets signal from the guitar. The unit has two modes: regular XDS mode and XDS Plus mode. When the receiver and transmitter don�ۡ���t communicate, I�ۡ���ll try switching modes and it still won�ۡ���t work. It�ۡ���s frustrating not knowing if my wireless will work or not. Even when it does work, I�ۡ���m afraid to turn off the transmitter after soundcheck because it might not work the next time I turn it on. At half my shows in the past couple years I�ۡ���ve had to ditch this wireless and use a regular cable instead. This wireless has five channels, but you have no idea what frequency you�ۡ���re on nor do you have any options to change them or scan for one that�ۡ���s available. The bottom line is that this Line6 product is unreliable. Spend some extra money and get a Sennheiser. The receiver will scan for an available frequency that you can lock-in. Then it just takes a couple seconds to sync the transmitter with the receiver and you�ۡ���re ready to play. Sennheiser has some other settings to adjust, but it�ۡ���s reliable and more solidly built than the Line6.

It's cheap. And it's cheap.

By John Rehanek

from Marshall, VA

I own two of these. I haven't any any problems with dropouts, they actually sound better than any wireless guitar system I've ever had. But... There are some nittling little annoyances with the system. First, the receivers pop like hell when you cut them on. Sound man ends up glaring at me over that one. Second, the receivers are in the "off" mode by nature. blow a breaker and they have to be turned back on. Which is fine if you remember, but kind of a pain if you forget. Nothing speaks of professionalism like starting a song with no guitar. When wired to a pedal board as mine are, they should be on always. I get the fact that battery users would't want that, but I would certainly prefer it in my setup. The transmitter is kind of difficult to use. If you mount it on your strap, facing down as is necessary to prevent straining the cord, you can't see the lights that indicate power/channel selection. Sounds like a stupid complaint until you're on stage trying to use the thing without breaking it: you'll end up smelling your right armpit and spinning your guitar all around to figure out if the thing is on or not. Lastly, the supplied cord is junk. I had one break after about 30 shows. It was mounted facing the guitar, the cord was taped in place. The connections inside the molded stereo mini just broke. It's not fixable in any permanent fashion. Yeah if you cut the molded plastic off you can probably re-solder the connections. Then what? This is no problem because line 6 sells a "premium" replacement cord for about half the price of an entirely new unit. About 50 bucks for a two foot cord with a stereo mini and a right angle 1/4" plug. Guess nobody at line 6 plays a strat...Anyway the "Premium" cable has a plastic, yes for 50 bucks, PLASTIC threaded connector for attaching the cord to the transmitter. More junk. Still the x2 is a value for the money. I'm begging for a redesign of the chassis, and a cord that doesn't suck.

Sounds good when it works

By Dave C

from Colorado

I was expecting a lot from this unit as I have a couple of friends who have used the same unit for a while now with nothing but rave reviews. I am now returning a 2nd unit in a month as they both seem to stop working for no apparent reason. Neither unit has been used for more than 5 hours!

Good For The Price!!!

By T.C.

from Cleveland, OH

I purchased this unit due to my band is starting to tour more and we are playing on some bigger stages and I like to interact more with my bandmates and the crowd. The unit works pretty good. No dropouts or pops or squeals. One thing I did notice was you need to keep the receiver on the floor. I had it on top of my amp, and it was humming, popping, squealing. Other then that, it is a great buy.

You'll get what you pay for!

By Rene

from Camarillo, CA

This unit is cheaply constructed and not only looks, but feels like a toy on you. Why anyone would want to purchase it, I'll never know. The sound coming through was very tinny/bright coming through my bass. So much for their claim of "Thundering Lows" down to 10 Hz! Purchased a used SHURE SLX14, problem solved.

Sounds good, but cheaply constructed.

By David

from Columbus, Ohio

I love that this system is impossible to mess up. No gain controls to dial in. Just turn it on and go. I also love the small size of the receiver. I haven't had any issues with signal drop outs even on big stages. The problem I have is with the construction, specifically the cable jack on the transmitter. Mine gets light use. 2-4 gigs a month. (I don't use it for my acoustic rig.) It's stored in a padded protected area of an Access bag. I treat my gear like gold and my X2 transmitter still looks like new. Despite this treatment, the input jack fell apart. At first, the threaded portion spun around. Last night, it fell out. It's just gone and the transmitter is useless until I can get it repaired. There is simply no excuse for using a shoddy jack on this transmitter. Once it gets fixed, I'll be a happy camper again, but in the meantime, not so much.

Finally

By B. Lenin

from Seattle, WA

I am a bass player and this was my 3rd wireless system in two days. The cheapy was...well cheap. The one priced comparable to this one sounded worse than the cheapy! I decided to give it one more try before giving up and going back to cables. I am glad I did. Though I just got it, I played a two hour rehearsal with my band and noticed no cut out, distortion, tone or volume loss. It literally sounded like I was tethered to the amp again. Difficult getting the battery in the receiver, but other than that, no issues...so far.

An Excellent Choice For Guitar Wireless Transmission

By johnny alonso

from San Diego, California

I recently bought the line6 wireless because I was so sick of playing live and always having to unwind and untangle what looked like spaghetti on stage. I wanted a wireless system that was easy to setup, durable for road gigs, a system that didnt drop any tone and volume. in other words - full control of the guitar as if plugged in with the cable. if youve been in this sitcho and know what i'm talking about - this line6 is the one you want. its super easy to setup, the digital feature lets you have full control of the volume on your guitar, instead of having it always maxxed at 10. battery life really isn't that bad, but once the indicator drops to level 3 you'll hear a difference in performance. range is sick!!! its really the best out there for the price and def compares to the more expensive ones. try this line6 X2 wireless. you won't be disappointed :)
