The X1 A: It could be your first mic, but you'll want to keep it forever. When it was introduced in 2011, the original X1 brought a new level of quality to entry-level microphones, competing easily with others 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 latest X1 S, 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. “...I can hardly find a flaw on this microphone.” - Carsten Kaiser, Bonedo.de What's in the X1 S? X1 A capsule X1 A switches X1 A windscreen 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). ALL-METAL HOUSING & PREMIUM FINISH WITH INTEGRATED WINDSCREEN 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. An the integrated windscreen liminates the need for an external pop filter, providing an extra layer of safety and security for the all-important capsule. Great sound for vocals, guitars, pianos and more.
