The X1 A is designed to be the best-in-class offering on the market for home recordists and to bring the heritage of the X1 Series to an expanded user base worldwide. The sE team has been working hard on this new acoustic design, which delivers a sound you might expect from a much more expensive microphone.
The X1 A delivers best-in-class sound quality, high dynamic range, and impressive workmanship. Thanks to its carefully selected capsule it offers an even, well-balanced frequency response. The electronics have also undergone a complete overhaul, and exhibit better specifications and sound.
Attenuation pad and low-cut switch
The -20 dB pad switch provides extended dynamic range, enabling a wide range of applications and close-mic techniques for even the loudest instruments. It is great for close-miking guitars, loud brass instruments, and heavy-footed kick drums. The100 Hz low-cut switch helps eliminate low-frequency rumble or footfall noise, and compensates for excessive bass with close-mic technique.
All-metal housing and 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.
The X1 A’s windscreen eliminates the need for an external pop filter, and provides an extra layer of safety and security for the all-important capsule.
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.
From vocals to acoustic instruments to electric guitars or percussion, the X1 A is the perfect choice for any musician seeking a high-quality microphone with an entry-level price tag.
