It could be your first mic, but it'll never be one you want to replace. The X1-A large diaphragm condenser microphone is the new entry point to sE’s acclaimed X1 Series. It is designed to be the best-in-class offered on the market for home recordists, bringing the heritage of the X1 Series to an expanded user base worldwide.
The new acoustic design delivers an impressively pristine sound that one would expect from a much more expensive product. The new X1 A delivers not only best-in-class sound quality at its price point, but also convinces with its useful features, high dynamic range, and impressive workmanship.
The -20 dB pad switch 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.
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).
