New X1 A Review from Musicmaker

"The mic sounds transparent...realistic...calm, definitely not the hyped sound that is common for the price tag."

"The microphone feels solid because of the metal chassis...I was pleasantly surprised that the mic has a low-cut filter. Some more expensive mics don't have that feature."

"Handles high SPL without any problems...even snare drums cause no issues...and the built-in pop filter performs nicely."

"Whisper test is no problem at all. The 's' sounds are not hyped, and that is a plus when recording."

"...I can hardly find a flaw on this microphone."

The fantastic German publication Bonedo has published one of the world's first reviews of the X1 A, and we couldn't be more pleased with the results.

Here are a few quotations from the review, translated into English:

 

"The clip included with the sE Electronics X1 A is pleasing...a circumferential lip on the foot extension prevents the X1 A from slipping out of the holder. Whether upright or overhead, the microphone sits bomb-proof."

"The microphone itself makes an excellent impression... painting and printing promise a long service life without ugly wear signs."

"...the frequency pattern for me sounds very balanced and sounds almost noble. Especially when you consider that this microphone goes for a price of not even 100 Euros over the shop counter."

"In the bass, the X1 A is full...the microphone is well-suited for the recording of singers with strong vocal projection...[and] loud sound sources such as guitar amps are no problem."

"Even plosive sounds do not pose a major problem at medium miking distances."

"With the sE Electronics X1 A an all-rounder appears on the stage of favorite condenser microphones, which can convince all around...I can hardly find a flaw on this microphone. The X1 A can convince you of its balanced frequency response, rich bass, unobtrusive yet present mids, as well as gentle highs, features such as high-pass filter and pad, right up to the fantastic processing of the microphone."

"The microphone is particularly suitable for vocal recordings of 'sharp', very present-sounding voices and is undoubtedly worth every cent of its low purchase price. Therefore beginners find here a worthwhile first microphone, in order to implement their home recording ambitions at a very small cost. For recording friends, the X1 A is a good choice to expand the microphone cabinet..."
