The sE X1 has a large, 1" hand-made diaphragm, 10dB pad and low cut bass filter, and is finished in an expensive black rubber paint finish. The build and sonic performance are significantly better than key competitors, and the mic, which ships with a mic clip, can be accessorised with a shock mount and flight case if desired.
Heart of Gold
At the heart of the sE X1 Large Diaphragm Cardioid Condenser Mic is a gold-sputtered capsule, built by hand by skilled engineers in sE Electronics and thoroughly tested after every process. The mylar diaphragm is fitted and tightened by hand, with gold sputtering added to improve electrical performance. The careful capsule creation doesn't stop there, as each is tuned by hand to meet sE Electronics' high standards of quality.
The sE X1 is also available in the sE X1 Studio Bundle which includes the mic, cradle, pop shield and sE RF-X Reflexion Filter.
sE Electronics sE-X1 Review
"The sEX1 may be a low cost microphone but it doesn't feel that way. The X1 works very well with vocals and acoustic instruments, delivering a full bodied sound with a smooth mid range and un-hyped top." Future Music
"I've used the sE X1 as an overhead, I've used it as an audience mic and I've tried it on guitar and bass cabinets. It seems to be all-purpose, and seems to work on just about anything you put it on. All the sE Microphones seem to do what they need to do on anything that I've put them on." - Lance Reynolds, Engineer, Alt-J

No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.
