    When sE introduced the X1 condenser 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 is a refined version of this modern classic, improved in almost every way - and just as affordable as the original.

    Hand-Crafted 1 Inch True Condenser Capsule
    Just like its predecessor, the X1 S utilises a hand-made condenser capsule, meticulously constructed and tuned by the technicians in sE's capsule room. Led by sE's capsule master – with nearly 30 years of capsule-building experience – these highly skilled technicians are incredibly specialised, and are only allowed to build sE's production microphone capsules after 18 months of capsule-specific training. This results in a capsule built like the world's finest musical instruments - and a capsule truly up to the challenge of recording them.

    Ultra-Low Noise Electronics
    Where the original X1 was quiet, the electronics of the X1 S take its performance to a whole new level, making it one of the quietest mics in its class. Its internal redesign allows for improved sensitivity, dramatically increased SPL handling, 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...

    Standard Accessories
    The X1 S comes complete with a rock-solid, newly designed swivel mic clip and thread adapter to fit with any mic stand. If you need additional rumble control and 'plosive protection, the X1 S integrates perfectly with sE's Isolation Pack, as well as any of sE's Reflexion Filters® - recommended for an instant pro vocal recording setup for your home studio.
