OVERVIEW

Wired tone, wireless freedom, stompbox size.

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've used Shure, Samson and AKG before buying this wireless. I won't go back to any of the others unless they stop making these. To those who have problems with the guitar cord, read carefully. Push the plug in all the way, then turn the screw on connection clockwise until it stops. You will never have to hold the plug in place if you do this. The only caution I give is, don't be heavy handed. Use light pressure and stop when you feel resistence. It is possible to turn the entire jack on the transmitter. You could break the wires if you went too far. Other than that and a problem with rechargeable batteries, I have no problems with mine. I use a pouch to hold the transmitter.( no clip on any brand that I've used works well) I used to use a guitar bug which would have been great if it wasn't for the drop out. At some venues ( the bug) got so much interference I couldn't use it. Not a problem with this unit. I use a wall wart to power the receiver and get at least 6-8 hours from the battery in the transmitter. I'm going to buy the next model up now that the prices have dropped.

Ok, I don't like to write bad reviews but this thing deserves it. I Picked up 2 of these things, hooked them up at church and used them....well....TRIED to use them for practice. One worked...one didn't. You can't win them all, right. So I take it back and exchange it and with this new one the battery cover won't stay shut. I just think this thing is absolutely horribly designed. It's cheapo plastic and the thing thats makes me want to throw it across the room is the stupid battery cover on the reciever. You need to unscrew 2 small screws to get the stupid battery out! Who thought of that! That is STUPID! If It didn't eat through batteries in like a quater of the time they say, it might not be so bad. But they lasted like an hour for me....maybe 2. The body packs were a little better...but not much. I think if you're going to make this thing battery powered you might want to make it quick and easy to change the battery! I will say...they do work well when they work. Good clean sound. And I will be buying power cords for the recievers so i don't have to unscrew that stupid cover after every set. (trust me...if you buy them...just buy power cords with them!)

True Digital Interface!

By TheRock32

from Atlanta

i went through several other analog wireless systems, including the crappy little bugs, and this is by far the best system for the money. This is a TRUE digital system! Whoever said that it wasn't in an earlier review has no idea what they are talking about, the only way to transmit is analog, but the data is digitally coded. This puppy sounds crystal clear and no input overloading or clipping occurs like some of the other systems. This system uses a 24 bit DAC (which is way overkill!) and has plenty of sensitivity. The transmitter pack fits just like any other pack and will have a tendency to fall off if you don't tape it on or something, but this is nothing new. The receiver fits right into my pedal board and then output directly into my other FX! It also uses a standard 9V adapter so the power brick on my gator board works perfectly..No need to buy more power supplies! SWEET! I have walked more than a 100 feet away in a packed bar and still had great sound! This thing is definitely worth the money!

Awesome yet not perfect

By mr_guitardude69

from Los Angeles, CA

This wireless system is the best wireless system in terms of sound and tone! It sounds awesome, just as good or even better than a cable. It's easy to use and the battery life is good. However, there is one bad thing about it. The 1/8 connection gets damaged too easily. I just got mine a few hours ago, and now I'm having popping sounds and no connection at times. I just move the 1/8 connection around and the sound gets back on. Why couldn't X2 Digital make the connection like other regular wireless system. Other than that, it's an awesome product!

does not sound like a wire

By egp

from Baltimore, MD

See all my reviews

I bought this because the write-up and several reviews said it sounds just like a wire. Well, it clearly does not. It sounds like a pretty decent wireless system, way better than the horrible Shure PGX14 for example, but if the tone of your instrument matters to you, don't waste your time and money. I play a Sadowsky bass through a Markbass JB15 combo, and even my non-musician wife was able to tell immediately in a blind listening test the difference between a wire and the XDS95. I even tried making a special cable to take advantage of the "full bandwidth tuner output" feature of the receiver (instruction manual explains how to make it), and it didn't help enough that I'd want to use this device stage. Maybe it's good for lower end basses, or basses with passive electronics, I don't know. The sound seems to lack presence and fullness. It kills the beautiful crisp but rounded sound of the Sadowsky. I'm sending it back.

Meh

By azb24

from Phoenix

I picked this up and played through it for a total of about 10 hours or so before I ended up taking it back. It is very easy to install and get right to playing, however, I encountered a lot of small pops and what sounded like pitch-bending likely due to the transmission. I never experienced any of that while wired.I bought the unit as a home application. I really can't imagine how a serious gigging/touring artist would be able to use this and have faith in it during a show seeing as how I quickly became frustrated with what it was doing to my tone in my home.One thing I noticed too that was pointed out in the manual is the fact that treble is somewhat increased. Not a whole lot, but a noticeable difference. I played through both my Taylor acoustic and an electric and noticed it, especially through the Taylor.For several hundred dollars, I can stay wired.

Get It While It Lasts!

By Dave

from Waukesha, WI

See all my reviews

Ask me a question

Admittedly, the 2 originals I bought had major problems, and I exchanged them a week later. That was 2 years ago. Since then, not a single issue. The range isn't that great when exceeding 35', but that's why they made a rackmount reciever for these. As far as eating batteries; EVERY wireless system eats batteries. I never bother putting batteries in the reciever, it's so simple to daisy-chain with my pedals. Prior to my X2 XDS95s, I had a Shure T-Series, and the sound quality on this blows that system away. I can;t notice a difference from running a cable to using this.Note: This model is discontinued, BUT Line 6 has the X2 people making their new systems, and they're phenominal as well. These at the discount price (and I bought them when they were at $200) are WELL worth the price.

Best Dang Wireless Yet!

By Ucnick

from Union City CA

See all my reviews

I bought my XDS95 back before Line6 bought them, so I've been using it for gigs for more than 6 months,and I gig a few times a month, and not one problem. Just use due diligence and be careful with the connector and you'll be alright, mine has not had any problems because I am careful I suppose. I put the receiver on my pedalboard and just pop a freshly charged NiMH rechargeable into the bodypack (works better then NiCd) and bingo! Good to go! (well I always carry a spare battery...)We did a 4+ set gig last night in Aptos and it ran all night on a single NiMH battery! I have an old Sennheiser Digital 1000 system (I think that's what it is) and a Shure ULX system and this kicks their butts! I am going to sell them both. Plus the X2 system is made in USA, in Sacramento CA, so do yourself a favor, buy a great system and BUY AMERICAN!!!

Great Price for a Good Product

By That River

from Las Cruces, NM

See all my reviews

I have already used this system for two shows and a practice in the first week I got it. It has works fantastic. No tone loss, no static, no problems. The only thing is that the body pack went through a battery in about 5 hours. Not bad, but definately want to rechargeables. Receiver fits great on the pedal board. The max distance I could get was about 60 feet, but I could get farther due to the small bar we were playing. Anyway, buy it. You'll like it.

Excellent Tone - Cheap Connector

By Discojohnny

from Sacramento, CA

See all my reviews

Sounds great, but built cheap and dumb. You need a small phillips screwdriver just to change battery in receiver. It also blows through 9V after a 6 hour time frame. The worst part is the cheap molded connector cable in the transmitter. Mine broke after 3 uses. The transmitter clip is cheap too. I have to gaff tape mine to my strap - lame. Why do they sell an upgrade connector? The good connector should be included for tha price. I don't care about it being chinese made now as almost all electronics are nowadays. They don't have to be spec'd so cheaply! Line 6 needs to show quality improvement or sell these for $50. Then I wouldn't care if it broke after a couple of months.

Truly Awesome

By Bass Pengin

from Philadelphia

See all my reviews

Playing through this system is really rather stunning. The sound is completely indistinguishable from using a cable. This system is an especially smart buy for bassists because it actually handles low sub-bass frequencies... if you actually check the specs most wireless rigs in this price range don't. The 1/8" connector is indeed rather cheap, and did crap out on me, but if you order the higher quality version of the connector cable it's not only much more solid but it's possible to open it up and re-solder if the connection does come loose.So basically it's fantastic aside from needing to order an upgrade to the cable, but even with that upgrade it's far, far cheaper than any other wireless rig that is capable of sounding this good.

True Digital

By FrankTheSnake

from chicago IL

See all my reviews

First of all let me say that this is a real digital wireless. Wireless systems that claim they are digital but still use antennas are NOT real digital. This system does not get enough credit for the sound you get. The sound is like your using a real cable. I played and owned the sennhieser freeport and shure pgx13{i think thats what it was called} and this is very reliable. Get an adaptor if you do buy this.

Review

By eghere

from Livermore, CA

We had our first experience with the Line 6 X2 XDS-95 today, and it was nothing short of stellar. We've tried other "inexpensive" wireless instrument units and have had crackle/static problems with the units as we approach the edge of their range. Not so with these. We tested before performing, and found that this unit cuts off cleanly when you step out of solid-signal range...no pop, no crackle, no static. We gave a unit to our lead guitarist and another to our bass player, got on with playing, and never looked back. The signal was solid and the frequency range was NOT lacking. When we were done, our guitar player commented that he forgot he wasn't wearing a wire...it was that solid. Our bass player (who's been playing semi-professionally for about 15 years) mentioned that this is the best wireless product for bass that he's ever used. All around...it's a winner.

great system

By With Jack Waiting

from Wisconsin

This wireless system is great for live shows or just jammin out. Its sound is the exact same as a normal direct cable connection, with NO volume or tone loose at all! The only downside is the stomp-box receiver has about a 10 hour battery life but you can connect a power cord to it if needed. But honestly the only time I started running low on battery life was at band practices because unless your Dave Mathews your not going to be playing 10 hour show. This system is a GREAT buy. Its also not as bulky and big as a shure system or other system making it easy to carry in your guitar case.

Alters your tone

By smokehouse33

from Oklahoma City

See all my reviews

Ask me a question

This wireless will alter your tone if you play through a tube amp. I run a PRS and a Tom Anderson tele through a mesa boogie combo and with the wireless it gives it a cold, digital tone. I plugged back into a $20 cable and my tone instantly came back. With that being said, this wireless would be good for an acoustic instrument or a bass guitar, and probably even for someone who runs through solid state amps. For the money its not a bad buy, just dont go this route if you are a tone snob like myself.

Everything I wanted

By hollowembrace

I just bought this wireless and I love it. I tried various other wireless units, which were good, but didn't quite mimic my tone. I'm very picky about sound and tone. I play everything from jazz to rock to metal. Most other wireless units I tried like Shure, sennheiser, nady, were good wireless units, but didn't sound as good with high gain distortion. The X2 sounds just as good as a cable connection, if not better. Easiest wireless to hook up. You will not be disappointed.

bad experience

By christ4life

Our church bought three of these. 1 for bass, 1 for lead, and 1 for rythum guitar. They work - half the time. When they're working, they work great. We had a problem with them cutting in and out. We'd be playing, then all of a sudden they would shut off, then they'd come back again. Not good during a live venue.

sounds great, but

By boogie man

from west coast

The good: sounds great, easy to useThe bad: unreliable, short battery life, has ANYBODY at Line 6 actually ever TOUCHED a guitar?This could be a GREAT wireless system but for a few issues. The idea is fantastic... a couple of little stompbox size boxes. Battery life is dismal... 45 minutes for a brand new battery in the reciever? The wire clip for the guitar strap on the transmitter is a cruel joke. Come on Line 6, what were you thinking? Spend another 2c per unit and FIX this silly thing.Bottom line: sounds great when it works. Even though it claims to be a diversity reciever, it doesn't work if you're more than 20 feet away, and even when the transmitter and reciever are physically TOUCHING, it will drop out intermittently. I made the mistake of buying TWO of these unusable units. Save your money for something better.
