Meet the X1. No frills, no tricks, just great sound.
Whether you’re recording lead vocals, acoustic guitar, strings, percussion or any other source instruments, we consider the sE X1 outperforms every mic in its price class.
Why is the X1 one of these classy mic? Mainly because its large diaphragm, gold-sputtered capsule is hand-crafted and hand-tuned by skilled technicians in our own factory. This is highly odd for mics at this price, and is a brilliant point of pride for us.
This capsule is the true heart of the X1. Since all our capsules are custom-made in-house (you’ll be able to read more about that here), we may be able to coax the very highest levels of performance out of our microphones.
Surrounding the all-important electronics is a strong metal chassis finished in acoustically-damping black paint, to minimize any resonant frequencies in the microphone body. The sE X1 is also equipped with a 10dB pad and a low-cut bass filter, providing essential tools for recording numerous sources in any environment.
The X1 comes standard with a mic clip so that you can securely attach it to any mic stand, but if you are interested in some other options, you’ll be able to read about the X1’s accessories and bundles below.
