PRODUCT INFORMATION

The X1 S is a refined version of sE's best-selling X1, tuned for advanced performance in every way imaginable.

Meet the X1 S, the new gold standard in affordable condensers.

When sE introduced the X1 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 has been improved in every way - yet is even more affordable than the original.

CUSTOM-DESIGNED, HAND-CRAFTED CAPSULE

Just like its predecessor, the X1 S utilizes a hand-made condenser capsule, meticulously constructed and tuned in sE’s capsule room by technicians with decades of experience.

This results in a capsule built like the world’s finest musical instruments - and a capsule truly up to the challenge of recording them

HIGH-PERFORMANCE ELECTRONICS

Where the original X1 was powerful, the redesigned electronics of the X1 S take its performance to a whole new level, giving it the highest dynamic range in its class.

Its internal redesign also allows for improved sensitivity, dramatically increased SPL handling (up to 160dB!), 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.
