sE Electronics was founded in March 2000 by Siwei Zou, a very talented classical musician from Shanghai, who won a top position at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music and went on to become a hugely successful conductor and composer. He has also worked closely with the Shanghai Opera and the Shanghai Philharmonic Orchestra for several decades. In 2002, James Ishmaev-Young and Phil Smith became equal partners in the still very young company, and the combined technical expertise, market knowledge, and commitment to absolute perfection and detail, quickly established the new sE team as one of the brightest lights in the pro audio industry. Less than a year after James and Phil took co-ownership of sE, the company moved on from its OEM roots and never looked back.
All sE mic capsules are entirely built by hand by highly-skilled engineers. Even the chassis and flight cases are built in-house. In fact when you own an sE Electronics microphone you can be confident that every aspect of both the mic and its accessories has had the same unrivalled level of care and passion right throughout its design and manufacture. Even to the level that every single microphone that leaves the facility has undergone a personal listening test — and it shows.
sE Electronics condenser mics are already the No.1 brand in the UK and the fastest growing microphone brand in Europe and the USA. The brand, in its short history, has already won almost every major European award possible for excellence and is fast finding the same unanimous acclaim and passionate following in the USA and Asia that it has in Europe.
