When we first heard Fender was making in-ear monitors, we have to admit we were immensely curious; after all, the legendary guitar and amp company makes the most famous instruments and amplifiers on the planet! After doing some digging, we discovered that Fender had acquired Aurisonics last year, one of the most innovative IEM companies in the business. For our review, we choose the FXA6, which uses a combination of a Hybrid-Dynamic Balanced Armature and a custom 9.25 rare-earth driver to deliver a gigantic sound.
To say that Rev33 is a "filter," although technically true, seems to us at WLM to be a dramatic understatement, as the little device is one of the best IEM accessories we’ve ever come across! In short, Rev33 is a passive device that sits inline between your audio source and headphones that reduces unwanted noise and distortion in your IEMs, allowing the drivers in your IEM to give you the ideal listening experience no matter what source you’re using.
Based in Orlando, FL, Clear Tune Monitors have one of the most diverse lineups of custom IEMs on the market. CT-6E sport 6 drivers per ear (1 high, 1 mid, 1 low mid, and dual low) and provide up to -26dB of noise isolation. Clear Tune has one of the biggest selections of shell color and faceplate and offer custom artwork for all their IEMs.
