Description

The new gold standard in affordable large-diaphragm condensers. With a hand-crafted and individually tuned custom 1" capsule, high-performance electronics, an all-metal chassis, -10dB and -20dB pads and two low-cut filters, the X1 S has the sound and features you'd expect from a serious high-end studio mic, at only a fraction of the cost.

The X1 S is a refined version of sE's best-selling X1, tuned for advanced performance in every way imaginable. When sE introduced the X1 in 2010, it redefined the potential of an affordable hand-crafted condenser microphone. 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 - yet is even more affordable than the original.

CUSTOM-DESIGNED, HAND-CRAFTED CAPSULE
Just like its predecessor, the X1 S utilizes a hand-made condenser capsule, meticulously constructed and tuned in sE’s capsule room by technicians with decades of experience.

This results in a capsule built like the world’s 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 X1 S 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 X1 S'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
Ensures loss-free, reliable signal connection for years and years and years and...
