The Aquarian Studio-X Clear with Power Dot is made with a 10mil ply of clear film, an underside control ring, and a topside center control dot. This drumhead is a good balance between sensitivity and control. This head is a more durable version of the Aquarian Studio-X Clear, with a touch less sustain. The power dot adds attack and extra durability, without sacrificing too much sensitivity. The control ring and power dot create a more focused tone compared to a non-dampened single ply drumhead. Overall the sound is pushed towards the mid-range and low-end, and there is still some sustain and good sensitivity.
The Aquarian Studio-X Clear with Power Dot is a great choice if you want to reduce ringing overtones. The control ring and center control dot both help to reduce high-pitch ringing, while keeping some sustain. The result is a brighter punchy sound, with good depth. There is a nice attack which helps this drumhead stand out, even in a louder environment. Compared to the Clear Studio-X, the Power Dot version has more focus on the attack and less on the ringing that follows.
