The affordable hand-crafted X1 S has the highest dynamic range and SPL handling capabilities in its class. Based on the best-selling X1, the X1 S has been improved in every way with expanded features that dramatically increase its flexibility. Meet the X1 S, the new gold standard in affordable condensers.
Where the original X1 was powerful, the redesigned electronics of the X1 S take its performance to a whole new level, giving it the highest dynamic range in its class.
Its internal redesign also allows for improved sensitivity, dramatically increased SPL handling (up to 160dB!), and a huge reduction in self-noise.
Two Switchable Attenuation Levels
The -10 dB and -20 dB pad switches provide extended dynamic range, enabling a wide range of applications and close-mic techniques for even the loudest instruments...think super-heavy electric guitars, fortissimo brass instruments, and heavy-footed kick drums.
Two Switchable Low-Cut Filters
Selectable at either 80Hz or 160Hz, these two filters help eliminate low-frequency rumble or footfall noise, as well as help compensate for excessive bass (proximity effect) with close-mic techniques.
All-Metal Housing and Premium Finish
Unlike the cheaply constructed bodies of some other entry-level microphones, the X1 S's all-metal chassis provides efficient rejection of any electrical interference and noise - and the high-quality finish ensures a great look for years to come.
Gold-Plated XLR Connector
Ensures loss-free, reliable signal connection for years.
