#XviveT9 #InEarMonitors
Get the T9 set on Amazon:

Today, we’re diving deep into the low-end frequencies with the Xvive T9 In-Ear Monitors. These monitors are not just another pair of earbuds; they’re a game-changer for bass players.

The Xvive T9s are designed and hand-finished in the USA, featuring dual balanced-armature drivers1. This design approach offers pro-level audio quality previously only available from custom in-ears1. But what does this mean for us bass players?

Well, the powerful, high-headroom bass/mid balanced armature, and custom-tuned and custom-ported micro tweeter provide an even sound with an extended bass response1. The bass is very prominent, extremely tight, and slams unexpectedly hard2. The sub-bass maintains extension and rumble even down to around 10hz2. Very impressive, especially for a balanced armature!

The Xvive T9s are not just about the bass. They offer a clear and detailed high end1, ensuring that your bass lines cut through the mix without losing any of the richness and depth. The midrange is decent, soft, and non-fatiguing, making these monitors perfect for long practice sessions or gigs.

My review of the new documentary Murder in The Front Row. It chronicles the origins of the San Francisco Bay Area Thrash Metal scene of the 1980's.
The Documentary is a companion to the book of the same name, and shows extensive never before seen photos and behind the scenes stories.
