Overview

The Line 6 XD-V70 Digital Wireless Handheld Microphone System can do what analog digital wireless systems can't. It can deliver top-notch wireless performance, simplicity, and sound on every stage around the world”license free.

Line 6 digital wireless technology won numerous awards when it debuted in 2008. It proved that 50-year-old analog wireless technology wasn't the only option. Now in its 4th generation, Line 6 digital wireless technology is leaner, meaner and raising the bar for all digital wireless systems.

Unmatched wireless performance
XD-V70 keeps you on the air longer with less to worry about. Exclusive digital technologies ensure against all types of audio interference. XD-V70 offers frequency diversity, which incorporates a hybrid frequency-hopping spread-spectrum practice. This results in thoroughly reliable operation”even in hostile RF environments.

Broadcasting in the 2.4GHz band successfully avoids interference caused by TV stations, public safety broadcasts, cell phone towers, and other high-powered sources. Plus, it enables XD-V70 to broadcast around the world without a license.

Unmatched simplicity
Simply power up, pick a channel, and go. Analog wireless systems are notorious for making their users jump through hoops to get set up. XD-V70 offers the opposite: zero required adjustments, and nothing standing in the way of you and your performance.

No more show-stopping dead batteries. Get eight hours of constant usage from two AA alkaline batteries. Battery life data is monitored via clear, easy-to-read meters on the transmitter and receiver.

Unmatched sound
XD-V70 delivers clear, pure, and responsive vocal reproduction. And it does so throughout its entire 100-meter/300-foot range. (Unlike with an analog wireless system, XD-V70's audio doesn't degrade with distance.)

Recognized as a world leader in digital modeling technology, Line 6 has outfitted XD-V70 with a variety of accurate microphone models. These models enable XD-V70 to take on the sonic characteristics of six popular microphones. Via a button on the microphone shaft, you can chose from presets based on a Shure SM58, Shure Beta 58, Sennheiser e 835, Audio-Technica AE4100, Audix OM5, and Electro-Voice N/D767.

An original Line 6 microphone model, L6-DC7, features the best sonic qualities of the other six models. It has the sparkle associated with condenser mics, the ruggedness and high dynamic range of dynamic mics, and plenty of responsiveness to cut through the mix.

This modeling advantage makes XD-V70 the perfect match for any vocalist or vocal application.

Consumer Alert:

Most users do not need a license to operate this wireless microphone system. Nevertheless, operating this microphone system without a license is subject to certain restrictions: the system may not cause harmful interference; it must operate at a low power level (not in excess of 50 milliwatts); and it has no protection from interference received from any other device.

I was about to purchase a second Shure PGX-24 Beta 58, but no one in town had one in the frequency band I wanted, and I needed a mic for a gig the next day. I recalled hearing this mic at a Mobile Beat tour stop, and was impressed with it then. I decided to go ahead, bite the bullet, and spend the extra $100 this mic costs over the Shure as my local GC had it in stock. From the moment I opened the box I was impressed. The receiver is in a solid, metal housing, and it comes complete with the necessary hardware to rack mount a single unit it, or couple to a second unit and mount the two in a 1U space. It also came with cabling and bulkhead fittings to optionally mount the antennas outside my rack case...very nice feature. When I buy a second unit (and I will be doing so), the two can share the same externally mounted antennas as the recovers are equipped with passthrough connectors for this purpose. Very well thought out. The mic/transmitter came in a very nice, padded zipper case. The case was much more substantial than I'm used to with my Shure mics. Once I had everything hooked up, and turned on, the mic sounded incredible. I tried all of the modeling settings, and although I'm not familiar with all of the models, I can say that an A/B test of my Shure Beta 58 against this mic in Beta 58 mode sounded very similar. I actually ended up going with no modeling as the standard sound is better than the Beta 58 IMHO. I even tried my Beta 58 capsule on this transmitter (screws directly on with no adapter needed). I like the sound of the Line 6 capsule much better. While playing my first gig with the mic, I noted one of the features that comes in VERY handy is an indication of battery life, both on the transmitter as well as the receiver. On the transmitter, this is an LCD readout of the number of hours and minutes of battery time remaing, and on the reciever there's an LED bar graph indication. No more guessing how much battery time is left, or throwing away perfectly good batteries just to be safe. I'm extremely happy with this mic, and I'm seriously considering selling my Shure Beta 58 wireless to buy a second XD-V70. Either way, a second one will be purchased soon. Don't hesitate...buy it...you'll love it.

Im a professional Touring engineer... the line 6 wireless were recommended by a friend at a church... so I bought ten for my church... they sounded pretty decent... they distorted a bit when you dug into a loud vocal, but overall decent sound, good feedback rejection... better than the beta 87's we had, but that's expected with b87's and a monitor : ) Then the issues came out: 2 started to exhibit strange digital dropouts and digital blips even when no one was around to touch the transmitters... the next week 2 more started in... so I was left with 6 working mics... now this week 2 more... i talked directly to line 6 and they are telling me its a 'hardware' issue... so I said "are you telling me I happened to get 6 bad mics when they are barely 2 weeks old?" they have yet to respond to that... while right next to the line 6 are a full stack of sennheiser EW series mics... ZERO PROBLEMS... EVER... NEVER had a bad transmitter from SENN... and they are the same price! So you tell me which 'line' you should trust.... a brand new mic that no one has truly tested out or a 'tried and true' touring brand that is the same price... FYI, the line 6 are ALL going back... decent sound or not, they should at least work. I seriously think the whole 2.4Ghz wireless technology needs time to mature. Good luck on your next purchase... chose senn... or shure [gotta show them some love as well, except for the ulx series... hate 9v for wireless] anyway.. good luck!

Even Better Than Expected !!!

By Douglas Hart

from Near Stillwater, Ok

The Line 6 XD-V70 is by far the best wireless mic I have used to date. I compared it side by side with one of our Shure SM58 wireless mics. The difference is night and day. The Line 6 is in another league. It is crystal clear with no EQ. There is almost zero handling noise. The mic is absolutely silent... no static or hiss at all (even listening through headphones). It also makes no noise whatsoever when turned on and off.
We will be purchasing at least 5 more of these.
I love the ability to display a name on the LCD of the mic. Not quite as useful as colored electrical tape, but certainly looks better and has a "cool" factor.
Battery Life listed in hours/minutes instead of a segmented bar like other mics. It actually tells you how much battery life is left. I can also read the battery status of the transmitter on the receiver at mix position.
As an audio engineer, I love the fact that I can look at the receiver and tell if the mic is on and if it's muted or not.
Antenna pass through: You can link multiple units together and use only one set of antennas for the whole rack... and you can place them remotely. Very nice to not have a bunch of antennas cluttering the back of the rack.
Modeling: I don't have all of the mics to A/B test against for accuracy, but I really don't care about that anyway. Scrolling through the different mic models, you can definitely tell a difference. Just pick the one that sounds best for that particular vocalist. To my ears, the Line6 models sounded the best, followed by the 767...
I used the Line 6 XD-V70 mic for the first time at church this evening. Since I've only had it for one day, I can't speak of durability, but I will say that this appears to be a very tough, well build mic. The first thing I noticed upon opening the box is the receiver. It's aluminum chassis feels very solid and looks nice. The piece to connect the units together is made of rugged plastic and feels very solid, although quite difficult to install.
The handheld transmitter also feels very durable. The exterior is metal and has a nice weight and balance. Fits in your hand very nicely. The LCD screen is recessed just the right amout for protection. It's bright and wasy to read. The buttons feel solid and are recessed to prevent accidental pushing, although they are recessed "almost" too much. Fat fingers will have trouble pushing them.
The only complaint about the handheld is that the battery compartment seems a bit cheap. It's plastic and feels like it would break easily if not handled carefully.
Personally, I think most wireless mics are too expensive for what you get. This is the first wireless that I've used that I felt was worth the price.

Good but

By Tom Doerfel

from Key West

I would of gave this a 9 if I wasn't having problems with 2.
I have 3 of these. 1 sounds very good, but the other 2 must have something wrong with them because they have a strange high fuz sound when being sang into. It's not super noticble but to one with a good ear very annoying. Going to mail the 2 weird ones in hope that there is something wrong. I really like this mic. Just annoying having only 1 that sounds good. And yes I make sure that all the settings were the same when I was trouble shooting them and had the same vocalist with all EQs flat. Def something messed up with two...for $500 each that's a bummer and it's all set up in our rack and it is very difficult to get out.
This product is pretty heavy duty. Also have never had any wireless interference which is awesome.

Great item but affects WIFI Wireless G

By RockMan1

from Santa Rosa, CA

This is a really powerful wireless mic system. In fact i'm going to get one for our church. My experience is this: One of my clients has 11 of these setup for a conference center and when this thing is powered on it blew away the WIFI Wireless G Access point for the customer as well as any in the area at other businesses. Spoke with an engineer with the manufactuer and was told this item is "Military Grade", uses multiple (4)channels at once that change every 300ms and is designed to ensure that it doesn't lose it's signal. The solution I was told is if WIFI is needed use wireless N which runs at 5 mhz range and not the 2.6mhz that this system and wireless G uses. They should state that in the description. Besides that the mic is great and does everything they say it does and more.

Thing of beauty! Magic.

By gary

from Seattle WA.

Thanks to FCC, I found this little beauty outside of regulated frequencies! Iron clad solid wire connection. Not a single glitch even in Seattle, like living in a microwave. No wind sound! Beautiful uncompress, open, informative control interface. It was a leap of faith but I was desperate now I have a reverent respect for my new 70. More quality and innovation than I'm used to. My Bose L1.2 never sounded better. Never had it feedback even inches away. I will buy more especial for it's antenna distribution system!! I am a pro telling you Line 6 is original thinking. I never would have found it without FCC scrapping my Sony Pro investment. I usually don't recommend to my competition, but Line 6 deserves their continued success.

Secret Cool Technology!!!

By Yikes

from Issaquah

My V70 ignores wind! No glitch. Beautiful looking, performing, even with mass compression. I want/need 3 more. Finally an unlicensed frequency that works and sounds amazing! I used the L6 mic setting. I was surround by TV camera crews wireless mics too.

Great Mic...Worth the Money

By Philip

from Jasper, Ga

I won this mic at the WFX Convention in Atlanta. At first I was sceptical about the quality of the mic (as far as sound) because of the brand. The reason I entered the drawing is I liked the way it fit in my hand. Now on to the important part...the preformance. I have a small home recording studio so I thought Why Not. This mic did a steallar job in the studio! Much to my surprise! I put it up against an Audio Technica MB4k and this mic blew it out of the water. Even with a dbx Provocal unit attached to the AT mic. I took this mic to my church where it blew the VOCOPRO 5200 mics away. This thing works great live and in a studio environment. The built in mic modelers really help to dial in the mic for your voice, plus you can custom label the mic name on the lcd of the handheld unit and it will display that name on the reciever when the handheld is powered up...no more ugly colored tape. YAY!! All the hardware is included for rackmounting this mic and for repoisitioning the antennas on the rack ears. Buy it, you wont be sorry, in fact I want to buy another one.

Great, great, great!!!

By Ron Young

from Los Angeles, CA

GREAT! GREAT! GREAT! Some background: I?m a lead singer that has been on several major labels and I was also a sound man for many years at a top club in a major city. I have owned and used top of the line wireless handheld units such as Shure, Sennheiser, Nady, and Samson over the years, and have used it them in venues from clubs to arenas. Wireless units are just lousy radio stations that replace the mic cable. The technology has not changed for years other than slight tweaks and upgrades to give you more channels of lousy RF to get around the interference. Finally a company is taking newer technologies and applying them to musical equipment. Now I know the major hurdle in buying a Line 6 wireless is just because the other companies have been making them for years. Someone told me about this unit and my first response was LINE 6???!!! Yes, Line 6!...it actually makes perfect sense. This company has made a great name for themselves getting warm analog tone from digital technology. They have been making innovative, reliable, and versatile gear for long enough for the company to have a SOLID reputation?just not in wireless technology. But the same clever engineers that helped pioneer digital amp modeling obviously went to pretty smart engineers to come up with this one. First off the signal is clean and crisp. They have basically taken wireless out of the bands that have tremendous competition for airspace and put it in the band that?s more efficient and most of all LEGAL? and usableall over the world. (I tour and that?s a problem as many other wireless units work in frequencies that you need a license for). It operates as WiFi and cordless phones work, but there is no possibility of cross talk due to different encoding. I am Pissed that my Sennheiser I bought just a couple of years ago is noe illegal to use hear because the Govt sold off the 700 Mhz bandwidth. The Line 6 mic element sounds great. I have previously used condensers and dynamics in my mics for various reasons, and their capsule sounds as good, and in my opinion better than any Shure?but if you are still a slave to those mics ( many Front of house and monitor rigs are dialed in for those mics), you can replace the element with any Shure wireless capsule ( Audix is available with an adapter from Ratt Sound as well, and you can also use Heil capsules). They also have their great modeling to emulate the EQ colorations of some very popular mics?I chose to just use their element without modeling as I thought it sounded best with my voice, I even AB?d it against a Shure 58 and a Beta 58 capsule I had from my other handheld wireless units I still have, and still preferred theirs. DON?T LET THE OTHER COMPANIES BRANDING KEEP YOU AWAY FROM THIS WIRELESS!!! They have hit it out of the park with this unit. My sound guy loves the way it sounds, and so do I in my in ear monitors?speaking of which?.when is Line 6 going to apply this technology to wireless in ears??? Hint Hint. Please make one?then I can lose the other archaic piece of wireless gear that I own!
