The X1 S Studio Bundle has everything from the Vocal Pack, plus sE's simple and effective RF-X so you can record anywhere you want. If you're recording in a non-acoustically-treated space (bedrooms, closets, etc.), a Reflexion Filter® helps keep your signal clean without the sound of your room around it (learn more here).
Meet the X1 S, the new gold standard in affordable condensers.
The X1 S is a refined version of sE's best-selling X1, tuned for advanced performance in every way imaginable. When sE introduced the X1 in 2010, it redefined the potential of an affordable hand-crafted condenser microphone. With the highest dynamic range and SPL handling capabilities in its class, along with expanded features that dramatically increase its flexibility, the X1 S has been improved in every way - yet is even more affordable than the original.
Custom-Designed, Hand-Crafted Capsule
Just like its predecessor, the X1 S utilizes a hand-made condenser capsule, meticulously constructed and tuned in sE’s capsule room by technicians with decades of experience. This results in a capsule built like the world’s finest musical instruments - and a capsule truly up to the challenge of recording them.
Where the original X1 was powerful, the redesigned electronics of the X1 S take its performance to a whole new level, giving it the highest dynamic range in its class. Its internal redesign also allows for improved sensitivity, dramatically increased SPL handling (up to 160dB!), and a huge reduction in self-noise.
Two Switchable Attenuation Levels
The -10 dB and -20 dB pad switches provide 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.
Two Switchable Low-Cut Filters
Selectable at either 80Hz or 160Hz, these two filters help eliminate low-frequency rumble or footfall noise, as well as help compensate for excessive bass (proximity effect) with close-mic techniques.
All-Metal Housing and Premium Finish
Unlike the cheaply constructed bodies of some other "entry-level" microphones, the X1 S'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.
Gold-Plated XLR Connector & Mic Clip
Ensures loss-free, reliable signal connection for years and years and years. The X1 S also comes standard with a mic clip that will securely attach it to any mic stand.
"The RF-X does a great job of dampening room noise for vocalists, giving you a dry vocal sound to which you can add effects in the mix...we found it worked really well, getting the same result as far more expensive options." - MusicTech Magazine, July 2017
The RF-X is an instant vocal booth for any home studio.
Unwanted room sound interfering with your recordings? With the RF-X, anyone can capture a great-sounding recording anywhere.
New materials have been developed to make the RF-X lighter than its predecessors but also to maintain its durability – helping to position the RF-X as a versatile product suited for any challenging working environment. It features a four-layer acoustic filter design comprised of the outer vented composite panel, a wool fabric layer, an air gap layer and an inner acoustic foam layer.
This multi-layer design differentiates the RF-X from its competitors by filtering frequencies evenly across the whole spectrum, helping to ensuring that recordings exhibit almost zero sound coloration when using the filter.
