Forget the price, this is a great mic
by Ashton from Sunny Oregon coastThis mic sounds rich and full without the hyped top end of a Bluebird.

I would say the X1 delivers an Ďhonest soundí that has the richness you would expect from a large condenser. Believe it or not, the other contender was an AT 4047. While the X1 would not replace a 4047, in A\B listening tests, the X1 sounded beefier. Iím glad I bought it.
Verdict - Highly Recommended close [-]
Super quality mic!
by Grayling Pingel from United StatesI bought this about a week ago and have been using it through my Fishman Loudbox Artist amp. I tried 3 other mics through the amp which all sounded pretty bad. I was ready to take the amp back and try... read more [+] a small PA system and then I got this. It sounds great! You don't even have to mess with EQing it. I have all the knobs straight up (center) and the mic set to flat and it's just right. Real clear and has enough air to it to give that presence in the mix. I think it's a real deal. I plan on using it live for coffee house gigs and as a studio mic. close [-]

The amount of eq required to get a good sound was almost nothing and was a dream to use. I would highly recommend this mic for anyone looking for a reasonably priced mic with studio quality results. close [-]

There is not one person involved in audio recording that should not own this mic. The sE Electronics X1 is inexpensive, hand built, and feels like a pro mic. They sound professional, and are not mass-produced!
