Equipment Used

"Well worth looking into these So I have been researching IEM's for a while and I've looked at Sennheiser, Shure, and Audio-Technica but for some reason I always came back to looking at these. For a while they were only special order from my preferred supplier and were non-returnable. Well that scared the hell out of me because I could not find many reviews on them and I didn't want to risk wasting $$$... When they started to stock these I decided to take the chance and ordered it. Now mind you.. I had an off brand IEM system that I used and had already upgraded to Westone UM20 Pro Dual Driver ear buds so I can’t tell you what the ones that came with the unit sound like. To get started I basically used my X-32 and a multi-track recording as a virtual sound check to get my initial mix and I was blown away. It was like a concert in my head. The highs were crisp, the lows were warm, and the stereo separation was fantastic. I am a bassist in a band and really needed to have some low end so I can hear the kick and bass guitar. I've since used these live and I have not been disappointed, there has been no dropout issues or the dreaded zipper sound that sometimes plague in ear systems. One thing to note…the low power setting was fine for me. I felt that the high power was just to much as I could only set the volume at like 20%. On the low power setting I have the volume around 50% which gives me more control up or down. I don't have a high dollar IEM System so I can’t do an A-B comparison, But I am totally happy with the sound of these. Would I recommend this system…yes If I had to do it over would I buy it again…yes."
