If you are looking for a great all-rounder condenser microphone at a budget price, sE X1 Large Diaphragm Condenser microphone is the right microphone for you.

The sE X1 has a more open quality, seems less coloured and has a top end that you would normally associate with microphones about 5 times the price. The X1 is based around a hand-built, large-diaphragm, fixed-cardioid capsule, with FET (Field Effect Transistor) transformerless electronics. sE X1 includes the 10dB pad and low-frequency cut switches that so often get missed off budget microphones, simply because incorporating them makes it difficult to keep costs down.

The housing is rather elegant, with a rubbery matt-black paint finish and a tough steel grille. A swivel stand-mount is included. Standard 48V phantom power is required, and the output signal is delivered via a conventionally wired, balanced XLR connector.
Moreover, the low-cut filter didn’t make the voice sound excessively thin when engaged, as I’ve found with some other mics. Voices come across as solid, but with a lively, slightly forward character. The airy top end helps to get vocals across in a mix without making them sound over-present in the 3-5kHz region.
Whether you’re recording lead vocals, acoustic guitar, strings, percussion or any other source instruments, sE X1 microphone outperforms every mic in its price class. It is perfect for recording acoustic instruments and ensembles and is suitable for both female and male vocals.
