VOCALS

Whether it's the world-class Gemini II or the strikingly affordable X1, a great vocal mic is where it all begins.

 
   BASIC
Serious sound at an affordable price.

The X1 (cardioid)

"The sE X1 has a more open quality, seems less colored and has a top end that you would normally associate with microphones about 5 times the price."

- Russ Hughes, Pro Tools Expert (full review)

2200a II (multi-pattern)

"The 2200a II...has a fairly natural sound but is capable of flattery, insomuch as it adds a little low-end warmth while keeping the highs sounding sweet."

- Paul White, Sound On Sound (full review)

Reflexion Filter® X

"The Reflexion Filter has made a big impact on the quality of our home recordings. Never again will an amazing vocal take be marred by intermittent meowing or the sound of the fridge!"

- Tegan and Sara, pop musicians - sE Artist

 
● ●   ADVANCED
The next step up for clarity and performance.

4400a (solid-state)

"...just mount up an sE4400a and hit record." 

- Andy Hong, Tape Op (full review)

 

Z5600a II (tube)

"Not a session goes by that I don't find a use for this versatile mic. I find it works well for capturing room ambience, close-miking acoustic guitars and male vocals."

- John Richardson, drummer (Gin Blossoms, Eddie Money, Will Hoge, Badfinger) - sE Artist

Reflexion Filter® PRO

"I like to do vocals in the control room - much more direct interaction with the vocalist, so it's perfect for that."

- Lenise Bent, Producer / Engineer (Blondie, Steely Dan, Supertramp, The Band, Fleetwood Mac)

 
● ● ●   PRO
The best sound that money can buy.

Gemini II (dual tube)

"Awesome mic. Killed my 251 on super-rich gospel vocals."

- Chris Fogel, Scoring Engineer ('The Wolf of Wall Street', 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty', 'Old School') - sE Artist

The RNR1 (ribbon)

"It's stunning in all the obvious applications, and for my taste it's the first ribbon I’ve been truly happy to use on lead vocal."

- John O'Mahony, Mixer / Producer (Vance Joy, Sarah Bareilles, Coldplay, Metric) - sE Artist

Reflexion Filter® SPACE

"I have used the SPACE several times while in Hollywood recording Blake Shelton's vocals at his home...it’s the closest thing I have found to having consistency when recording in several environments."

- Scott Hendricks, EVP A&R Warner Music Nashville / producer (Blake Shelton, Faith Hill, Trace Adkins, Alan Jackson, Brooks & Dunn) - sE Artist
