    Shure x2u

    About Me Power User



      • Shure X2u Is Noisy

      Best Uses

        The Shure X2u is well made product. The case is sturdy, and well thought out. However, the electronics are noisy. The system noise floor is too high for professional use. It would be ok to use for music where there are not quiet passages.

        • Business
