sE Electronics sE X1 S Microphone

The sE Electronics sE X1 S Microphone is the new gold standard in affordable condensers, and a refined version of sE's best-selling X1, tuned for advanced performance in every way imaginable. With the highest dynamic range and SPL handling capabilities in its class, along with expanded features that dramatically increase its flexibility, the X1 S has been improved in every way.

The sE Electronics sE X1 S Microphone is the latest addition to the entry level range of sE Microphones, produced with one thing in mind... to outperform every other mic on the market in its price category and significantly over it.

Custom-designed, Hand-crafted Capsule

Just like its predecessor, the sE Electronics sE X1 S Microphone utilizes a hand-made condenser capsule, meticulously constructed and tuned in sEs capsule room by technicians with decades of experience. This results in a capsule built like the worlds finest musical instruments - and a capsule truly up to the challenge of recording them.

High-performance Electronics

Where the original X1 was powerful, the redesigned electronics of the sE Electronics sE X1 S Microphone take its performance to a whole new level, giving it the highest dynamic range in its class. Its internal redesign also allows for improved sensitivity, dramatically increased SPL handling (up to 160dB!), and a huge reduction in self-noise.

Two Switchable Attenuation Levels

The -10 dB and -20 dB pad switches provide extended dynamic range, enabling a wide range of applications and close-mic techniques for even the loudest instruments...think super-heavy electric guitars, fortissimo brass instruments, and heavy-footed kick drums.

Two Switchable Low-cut Filters

Selectable at either 80Hz or 160Hz, these two filters help eliminate low-frequency rumble or footfall noise, as well as help compensate for excessive bass (proximity effect) with close-mic techniques.

All-metal Housing and Premium Finish

Unlike the cheaply constructed bodies of some other "entry-level" microphones, the sE Electronics sE X1 S Microphone's all-metal chassis provides efficient rejection of any electrical interference and noise - and the high-quality finish ensures a great look for years to come.

Gold-plated XLR Connector and Standard Mic Clip

The sE Electronics sE X1 S Microphone features a gold-plated XLR connector that ensures loss-free, reliable signal connection for years and years and years and...it also comes standard with a mic clip that will securely attach it to any mic stand.
