When sE introduced the X1 in 2010, it redefined the potential of an affordable hand-crafted condenser microphone. Featuring the highest dynamic range and SPL handling capabilities in its class, along with dramatically increased flexibility, the X1 S has been improved in every way - yet is even more affordable than the original.
