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!)

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.
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.
I got this because of it's price and cleaning up the cable mess. THis thing is alot clearer then the Nady rigs I used back in the 80's (OK, 30 years of technolocigal innovation will do that), and this thing is consistent in performance! I hooked the reciever into the power supply of my Gator Powered pedal board with no problems!
I have been playing guitar for over 35 years now and this is the best wireless system I have ever used.When I play live I have to laugh at my bandmates who only get about one set on a battery.I can go for around sixteen hours using rayovac 9 volt batteries in the transmitter.I have the ac plug for the reciever.The signal is as clear as a cable.I am thinking about getting another one of these in case something happens to the one I am using now!
I like my line 6 overall. I have notice that the signal drops sometimes (not all the time) at about 25 feet. I had an old NADY that i got in 1993, our guitar player is now using it. I wish the range on the line 6 was as consistent as the NADY. I get from as little as 16 hours to as many as 32 hours per battery.I have the 12v adapter for the receiver (well worth it). I think the battery compartment on the transmitter is a little fragile just because of the exposed wires.I think people buy something and expect it to perform like one that costs three times the amount they paid. but,bottom line for the price it is well worth it.
I just got it today! It was really easy to unpack and set up! I cant tell much difference. Granted, it takes a bit of gettin used to, and the body pack at first is a bit clanky, but all in good time!
i don't get some of the complaints - "eats batteries?" what wireless guitar system DOESN'T eat batteries? definitely buy 9v adapter for the receiver because you have to use a screwdriver to replace the battery and you don't wanna do this in a live situation. batteries in the xmiter are lasting me about a month and rehearse three times a week - get good batteries, not bargain batteries. i use several of these units myself, across three guitars AND with a sennheiser headset mic. i've gone outside, over 70' away and still transmitted clearly. i also experienced an increase in clarity over the cables i had been using - i had to turn stuff down.
I bought this so we could march our bass guitar player in marching band (unorthodox, I know). It worked great. He was all over the field from many directions. There was no drop in reception out to 60 feet outdoors, in constant motion. I DO have to agree about eating the batteries, though. Get the adapter for the receiver, and use rechargeables for the transmitter and you're good to go! We have also used it to send the audio feed from a mixer to a video camera for a theatre production. No problems!
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.
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.
