Microphone – Corded, studio
The X1 A: It could be your first mic, but it’s one you’ll want to keep forever.
There’s a new entry point to sE’s acclaimed X1 Series, and it’s breaking the performance barrier (again) for every mic in its class.
When it was introduced in 2011, the X1 brought a new level of quality to its price point, competing easily with microphones costing several times as much. But that didn’t stop sE from trying to outdo themselves again.
With a newly-developed condenser capsule and an exterior based on the rugged metal chassis of the X1, the X1 A offers first-class sound & specifications at an even better “home studio” cost, featuring an extremely natural frequency response, massive SPL-handling capabilities (150dB!), switchable attenuation and low-cut filters, and a perfectly balanced sensitivity level – so it’s at home on absolutely any source.
ALL-METAL HOUSING & PREMIUM FINISH
Unlike the cheaply constructed bodies of some other “entry-level” microphones, the X1 A’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.
Eliminates the need for an external pop filter, and provides an extra layer of safety and security for the all-important capsule.
COMPLETELY NEW ACOUSTIC DESIGN
The X1 A’s new condenser capsule design is a work of art, delivering stellar sonic performance on any source with incredible speed, accuracy, and well-balanced frequency response.
The electronics have also undergone a complete overhaul, and exhibit better specifications and sound – on and off the test bench – than any other microphone in its class.
ATTENUATION & LOW CUT SWITCHES
The -20 dB pad switch on the left provides 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.
On the right, the 100 Hz low-cut switch helps eliminate low-frequency rumble or footfall noise, and compensates for excessive bass with close-mic techniques (proximity effect).
GOLD-PLATED XLR CONNECTOR
Ensures loss-free, reliable signal connection for years and years and years and…
The X1 A 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, the X1 A integrates perfectly with sE’s Isolation Pack, as well as the Reflexion Filter X – recommended for an instant pro vocal recording setup for your home studio.
