sE Electronics X1 S condenser micsE Electronics has announced the X1 S, an ‘updated and refined’ version of the company’s X1 condenser microphone offering expanded features and completely overhauled circuit design – claimed to be the highest dynamic range and SPL handling capabilities in its class.

Using a hand-crafted gold-sputtered large-diaphragm condenser capsule manufactured by sE, plus the same robust all-metal chassis design as its predecessor, the X1 S includes two low-cut filters (switchable between 80Hz and 160Hz) and two attenuation pads (-10dB or -20dB), as opposed to the X1’s single filter and pad options. The body’s finish has also been updated with the same new high-quality paint as sE’s latest X1 A, and the XLR connector is now gold-plated for loss-free, reliable and long-lasting use.

sE’s Vocal Pack and Studio Bundle have also been updated. The X1 S Vocal Pack includes sE’s Isolation Pack shockmount and pop shield plus a 3m XLR cable, and the X1 Studio Bundle includes the same plus sE’s RF-X Reflexion Filter.

‘We have updated the X1 microphone design to optimise its sound and build quality,’ says sE General Manager, Ling Zou. ‘Bundled with our RF-X, I believe we have delivered the best possible recording set-up for our customers – especially for new musicians. I hope it will be like owning your first car; it will be a useful tool for a very long time, and you will never forget the beautiful memories you create together.’

The X1 S ships worldwide in Q2 2017 at an SRP of US$249/€249 with a newly redesigned mic clip and mic stand thread adapter, and is fully compatible with sE’s Isolation Pack shockmount/pop filter system. The X1 S Vocal Pack and X1 S Studio Bundle will have an SRP of US$299/€299 and US$399/€399 respectively, and will also be available worldwide Q2 2017.
