What makes the sE Reflexion Filter® so unique?

Often copied, never equaled.

Since sE invented the Reflexion Filter® in 2006, it has brought studio-quality vocals to over 120,000 rooms all over the world.

 

Since then, other companies have produced dozens of copies & clones, but sE's original Reflexion Filters have remained the industry standard for portable acoustic treatment due to their patented multi-layer technologies, which don't affect the sound of your favorite microphones like other imitation filters do.

So why can’t you just use a material like cardboard or foam around your mic?

A dense material like cardboard stops room sound, but creates new direct reflections, causing severe acoustic effects.

A softer material like foam helps keep out the room’s high frequency reflections, but doesn’t do anything to stop the lows.

 
Only sE’s patented multi-layer technologies diffuse and absorb sound across the entire frequency spectrum, so the room reflections are filtered EVENLY - this means that your microphone still sounds like your microphone, even in the crucial midrange frequencies.

"How much difference can a microphone make in the sound of your kick drum? You might be surprised.”
 

The great Lynn Fuston of Sweetwater Sound published a phenomenal shootout on their website this week, with sound samples of 11 kick drum mics - “some old standards that I’ve used throughout my career and some newcomers” - and the V KICK is in the lineup!

The V KICK’s four switchable tonalities.

Note: Even though the V KICK has four switchable tonalities to achieve four completely different kick drum sounds (which you can hear on the product page), only one of the V KICK’s four patterns could be used for the shootout. After all, they had to keep the comparison as fair as possible… ;)

Go listen to the shootout, check out the awesome methodology behind it (lasers!), and in Lynn’s words, remember to “put on your best headphones or crank up your monitors”!
