SE Electronics X1 Studio Condenser Mic is a large diaphragm, gold-sputtered capsule is handcrafted and handtuned by skilled technicians in our own factory. Surrounding all the important electronics is a sturdy metal chassis finished in acoustically damping black paint, to minimise any resonant frequencies in the microphone. The sE X1 is also equipped with a 10dB pad and a low-cut bass filter - essential features for using it in a variety of recording situations.
The sE X1 is one of our big success stories and one of the fastest growing mics in the sE range in terms of global sales. We believe that you shouldn't have to compromise on quality, even at the entry level of the condenser mic market. In a review in SOS Magazine, the reviewer writes, "The sE X1 has a more open quality, seems less coloured and has a top end that you would normally associate with microphones about 5 times the price."
