This state of the art ribbon element enclosed by top grade Neodymium magnets boasts some of the latest ribbon microphone technologies from sE Electronics. We have combined our traditional ribbon technology with some of the mechanical elements of our patented Voodoo microphone HF (High Frequency) extension technology to bring you a classic sounding ribbon mic with a gentle HF lift.

The sEX1R gives a hybrid of old and new ribbon technology for the natural beauty of the ribbon sound, but with more versatility and ease of use than the majority of ribbons on today's market.

The sE X1R also draws on the chassis and design elements of the hugely successful sE X1 Cardioid Condenser Microphone to bring you exceptional performance and the hand-crafted capsule quality you expect from all sE mics, but at a fraction of the cost of other boutique brands.

Press Reviews

"It delivers useful results on just about anything. It offers good all-round performance when you need a smoother alternative to a capacitor mic. Best of all, it is very affordable." Sound on Sound

"The sE X1R captured a sense of realism on acoustic guitar that would shame many similarly priced condensers." MusicTech Magazine
