The SE Electronics X1A brought a new level of quality to its price point, competing easily with microphones 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 X1, 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.
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.
