“Foreword: I'm a production manager, but focus mostly on sound engineering and installations. I install and tune a lot of P.A equipment, and also mix live acts. My work environments consist mainly of: - live venues, - concert halls, - bars - nightclubs. - festivals - events I've taken a huge liking to headphones - IEM's in particular. I like the idea of having my own personal PA...” --White Lotus
“ Impressed with the sound overall, balanced throughout the frequency range (bass is tight, medium to high frequencies not bad but I still think my Shures are better in the mid to high). That being said, the build is very worrisome - the right shell came apart exposing the tiny speaker and had to be glued. The cord is very flimsy and appears it won't take much of a yank to break the cord....” --jlopes89
“Astrotec seems to be a relatively new company to join the higher end IEM business and when I was offered an opportunity to borrow the AX-60 for a week for me to give my impressions, I jumped at the chance. I enjoyed that a lot that I was prepared to buy it, until I walked into the Noisy Motel and Billy showed me the AX-7, the model under the AX-60. I listened to it and I was shocked, in a good...” --lin0003
“ (This is my first review ever so, if you see something you don't agree with, it's a free country. Voice your opinions. But this is only one person's thoughts. Take it with a grain of salt.) I've been hearing about this IEM for the past year now. I was most intrigued by the reviews. It was hard to see a review about the Xcited (and its older brother, the Xcape IE, which our brother Spica,...” --amzies01
“Preface This is a short review intended for concise information presentation. The data presented in this review was provided by a good friend and a disinterested third party to whom I owe many thanks! All data is uncompensated (except for 1/12th octave smoothing), and measured with a fully IEC-60711 (IEC60318-4) compliant ear simulator. Why Review the AM70? Over the past...” --tomscy2000
“ I purchased these IEMs after reading about them in ljokerl's Multi IEM review thread. Needless to say, the sound was different than what I expected. Build - These are very, very well built IEMs. Iron housing, good stress relievers, and a cable that flexes with ease. Build was absolutely stunning. Isolation - These isolated very well, at least for me. Never had better...” --pro1137

The SW-Xcape is a more balanced IEM with a sweet midrange and nice bass, yet never compromises detail anywhere in the spectrum, notably the highs. Highs are neither in the forefront or in the background; they are balanced with the rest of the spectrum and are present as the recording dictates. There is a slight emphasis on the midrange, which is great for strings, vocals, and rock, but is still...
